Today (Sept 27) is the state funeral for slain former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe.
The suspect in Abe’s killing is Tetsuya Yamagami who allegedly murdered the ex-PM in revenge.
Yamagami sought to assassinate Abe because of the poisonous links between the latter’s political party and the politically active Unification Church.
Yamagami claimed that his mother had been irretrievably brainwashed by the manipulative church.
Japan’s ruling party LDP (note: the Liberal Democratic Party is the late Abe’s party) has deep connections with the controversial church.
The LDP has since confirmed that 179 out of 379 its lawmakers surveyed were found to have “interacted” with the church, Reuters reported last week.
The church successfully sunk its many tentacles into Japanese politics even though Christianity is ‘only’ a minority religion in Japan.
Political Christianity there is almost cultish in its recruitment and indoctrination of the rabid supporters.
