"2,500 identically-dressed couples have marry in a mass wedding ceremony in South Korea, all members of the controversial Unification Church, commonly known as 'Moonies' after their
 late founder and 'Messiah' the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. Often it was Moon himself who matched the couples who were unknown to each other before the ceremony."

new way to think about today's most troubling conflicts and extremist movements. She now works to find ways to battle extremist
 mentalities and their potentially deadly consequences." *
