UCG's Reliance on The Washington Times

UCG often quotes The Washington Times in their writings. The Washington Times is a far right newspaper. But UCG's writers never bother to mention to their readers what The Washington Times is. Both PCG and LCG treat The Washington Times in the same way.

The Washington Times was founded in 1982 by a certain controversial religious movement originating from Korea. This religious movement from Korea teaches many things contrary to UCG's teachings. It has often been described by ex-members and non-members as a cult. Both Rick Ross and Steven Hassan have much information regarding this controversial religious movement originating from Korea.

This link between The Washington Times and this particular religious movement from Korea is never mentioned by UCG.


Edward Yardeni, chief economist for the international investment firm of Deutsche Morgan Grenfel, predicts a 70 percent chance of a serious global recession. Said Mr. Yardeni: “If we have everything fixed in the United States [highly unlikely], but major disruptions in Europe and total calamity in Asia and Latin America, weÕre going to be affected in a very, very adverse fashion” (Washington Times). (John Ross Schroeder,

The 2000 Bug: A Time Bomb for Chaos?, January 10, 1999.)

Broadening out this problem, the potential threat of a rogue, long-range missile attack from any of two dozen Third World states is a major problem for future Western security. As a feature article in The Washington Times advises: “Prudence dictates that we deploy a national missile defense, before, not after, rogue states acquire missiles capable of destroying American cities.” Many are the problems that confront the United States. (John Ross Schroeder, Still a Troubled and Dangerous World, July 1, 1999.)

Wrote journalist Cheryl Wetzstein of The Washington Times: “Marriage in America has gone from better to worse, with fewer couples marrying and fewer still saying their lives together are wedded bliss, according to a report released on July 1 . . . As marriage has faltered, rates of divorce, cohabitation and bearing children out of wedlock have soared to record levels.” (John Ross Schroeder and Scott Ashley, World News and Trends: Anglo-American Marriage Trends, August 15, 1999.)

The modern approach, it is argued, allows a woman more control, more freedom and less subjection to men. Included in the report were the results of a survey of a group of young adults about their views of living together and marriage. All were single, working 20-somethings from New Jersey. “[Most] of them thought marriage should occur [only after] there are children, and children should come after a house is bought and a couple has a good annual income-around $75,000 in the women’s views… [The] young people saw… cohabitation as a good way to test compatibility, detect character strengths and weaknesses, and arrange certain household economies…. Women preferred short-term cohabitation, saying they could determine the man’s suitability for marriage in a few months. In contrast, many of the man said they could cohabit indefinitely” (“Cohabitation No Formula for Future Bliss in Marriage,” by Cheryl Wetzstein, The Washington Times).  (Cecil Maranville, Divorce Revolution Spawns Cohabitation Generation, September 4, 1999)

Psychologist Wade Horn, in his Washington Times column of July 6, 1999, takes issue with the APA's reasoning and conclusion. “The authors begin their first argument by stating that their 'research experience has led us to conceptualize fathering in the way that is very different from the neoconservative [read: anyone who thinks fathers matter—Dr. Horn's comment] perspective.' (Cecil Maranville, From Father Knows Best to "No Father Is Best", January 29, 2000.)

A primary factor is a pervasive decline in respect for the rule of law. As The Washington Times put it: “Just as the 20th century was tripped up by ideologies smoldering beneath the surface, the 21st century is threatened by the decline of law.” (John Ross Schroeder, World News and Trends: A world lacking in law and order, June 15, 2000.)

In fact, a renewed military alliance is being forged as confirmed by the news that Russia is readying cruise-missile ships for delivery to China. “The SS-N-22 is the most dangerous anti-ship missile in the Russian, and now the Chinese fleet,” said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a California Republican ( The Washington Times ). He continued with the assessment that “our Navy admittedly has scant ability to defend against this 200-kiloton nuclear-capable weapon.” John Ross Schroeder and Melvin Rhodes, World News and Trends: A new chapter in Sino-Russian relations, October 15, 2000.)

According to an article in The Washington Times, "most Americans believe the Bible is more factual than newspapers, but find their daily newspaper easier to read."(John Ross Schroeder and Melvin Rhodes, World News and Trends: Understanding the Bible in America, April 15, 2001.)

The tragic fruits of not heeding our Creator's advice are apparent all around us. Suzanne Fields, columnist for The Washington Times , recently reviewed a book called The Broken Hearth by William Bennett. She summed up an aspect of his worrying assessment of our social plight today: “Those who do not marry are having sexual relations at an earlier age, and contracting sexually transmitted diseases at much higher rates, cohabiting in unprecedented numbers, and having a record number of children out of wedlock.” (The perils of going it alone, February 15, 2002.)

Let me read you some recent news items from the Washington Times…
"A petition has been placed before the US Congress requesting the removal of the words ‘In God We Trust.’ People using United States currency are denied the right of free speech by repeatedly presenting this religious motto and slogan…"
And it goes on to say they find it particularly inappropriate to slander the Constitution by including religious graffiti, such as the motto ‘In God We Trust.’
Another article from the Washington Times…
"Government officials in states including Indiana, Kansas, Colorado and Kentucky have lost attempts to display the ten commandments in public." (John Elliot, Society And You, March 15, 2002.)

Under the headline “Synagogues Burn as Europeans Rage,” a Washington Times article added, “In Britain, which takes pride in a 'multicultural' society, police have logged at least 15 anti-Jewish episodes this month, including eight physical assaults, synagogues daubed with racist slogans and hate mail sent to prominent figures among the nation's 300,000 Jews. One was an assault on a Jewish theological student, David Myers. He was reading a book of Psalms aboard a London bus when he was stabbed 27 times.
“The attacks prompted Jonathan Sacks, Britain's chief rabbi, to say, 'Anti-Semitism is on the rise in Europe as a whole.' He blamed Islamic extremists for 'whipping up' sentiment against Jews in Britain and throughout the Continent” (April 22, 2002). (Darris McNeely, The Rising Specter of Anti-Semitism, May 1, 2002.)

Today’s Washington Times has a piece by Frank Gaffney, Jr which shows how the United States has changed its tack on Palestine and is now fully supporting the new Palestinian President as a man of peace, a key player in a road map to peace. (Darris McNeely, Israel and the "Oslo Syndrome", June 1, 2005.)

Iran could contribute greatly to terrorism, not only in Iraq , but also in Europe and America. “A top Ahmadinejad officer, Brig. General Mohammad Kossari, who heads the political watchdog, or Security Bureau, of Iran's armed forces, recently taunted the U.S. when he bragged 'we have identified all the weak points of our enemies' and have sufficient cannon fodder—i.e., suicide operation volunteers—'ready to strike at these sensitive locations.' Iranian television recently broadcast an animated film for Iranian children glorifying suicide bombers” (Arnaud de Borchgrave, “Later Than We Think,” The Washington Times, Feb. 6, 2006). (Cecil Maranville, How Serious a Threat Could Iran Pose?, March 1, 2006.)

Washington Times Editorial Page Editor Tony Blankley’s new book “The West’s Last Chance” highlights the growing international threat from radical Islam. (Melvin Rhodes, Is This Really The West's Last Chance?, March 29, 2006.)

Arnold de Bourchgrave does a good job of laying out the realities regarding Iraq in this Washington Times piece . The growing American cries to withdraw its forces altogether or to divide Iraq along religious-ethnic grounds (Kurds-Sunni-Shiite) are simplistic on the surface and they portend catastrophic consequences for the U.S. , as well as for the Iraq region . The latter includes potential civil wars in neighboring Arab countries, according to Jordan 's King Abdullah. (Darris McNeely, No Easy Way to Get Out of Iraq, November 29, 2006.)

Writing in the Washington Times Arnaud de Borchgrave shows this has been apart of Chinese military planning for some time.... (Cecil Maranville, Chinese Star Wars, February 5, 2007.)

Venezuela supplies 14% of U.S.  oil imports. Any effort to increase the worldwide price of oil, which Hugo Chavez actively encourages, directly effects our pocketbook. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson has a good background piece in today's Washington Times . (Darris McNeely, Are We Losing Latin America?, March 7, 2007.)

American journalist Suzanne Fields summarized Rafsanjani's simple mathematical equation: “In a nuclear exchange with Israel his country might lose 15 million people which would amount to a small 'sacrifice' from among the billion Muslims worldwide in exchange for the lives of 5 million Israeli Jews” (“Confronting the New Anti-Semitism,” The Washington Times, July 25, 2004). (John Ross Schroeder, Can Israel Survive?, June 9, 2008.)

An article in The Washington Times (“Youth Volunteerism at 50 Year High, Study Finds,” Nov. 20, 2002) noted that among teens and young adults, volunteerism and a desire to serve by helping others in the community and the world is at its highest level in more than 50 years. (Doug Horchak, The Greatest Humanitarian Cause, June 6, 2010.)

Recently, Wei Jingsheng, a Chinese dissident who spent 19 years as a political prisoner in China, told The Washington Times he thought China's warning that Taiwan might not get a second chance for peace if they elected Chen was a sign that China had already decided to invade Taiwan. (Mario Seiglie, The China-Taiwan Tinderbox, July 23, 2010.)

August 24, 2011 The Washington Times reported: “China's military buildup has made impressive gains that pushed the Communist Party-controlled People's Liberation Army closer to matching modern militaries, according to the Pentagon's annual report to Congress made public Wednesday. (August 27, 2011. From a UCG affiliated blog.)

Here’s a portion of the book’s synopsis. You know, on the back cover. Where have all the grown-ups gone?, she asks. That is the provocative question Washington Times syndicated columnist Diana West asks as she looks at America today. (Peter Eddington, Are You Going to Grow Up?, March 8, 2014.)

And as Middle East expert Daniel Pipes wrote in a Washington Times piece earlier this year, “Efforts to overthrow greedy tyrants lead to yet-worse ideological tyrants (as in Iran in 1979) or to anarchy (as in Libya and Yemen)” (“The Middle East Mightily Resists Efforts to Prod Modernization,” Jan. 23, 2014). (John Ross Schroeder and Peter Eddington, Searching for Eden in the Middle East, May 29, 2014.)

A recent Washington Times article described American public schools as “in a free fall,” with U.S. schools now ranking 29th in the world. This from the nation that earlier put man on the moon and has for decades led the world in finding cures for killer diseases. (Michael Kelley, 2015 - A Year of Triumph or Trial for America?, March 9, 2015.)

Former CIA director James Woolsey and Peter Vincent Pry, who served on the Congressional EMP Commission, have been outspoken about the EMP threat. Woolsey relates in a Washington Times article: “The Congressional EMP Commission estimated a nationwide blackout lasting one year could kill anywhere from two of every three Americans by a low estimate up to nine of 10 Americans by starvation and social disruption.” This is astoundingly serious and sobering! (Tom Robinson, Iran and the Threat of EMP Attack, November 3, 2015.)


And so this list of quotes come to an end.

UCG trusts The Washington Times and has never bothered to note to their readers who happens to own this newspaper.
