What is kidnapping, confinement and forced conversion?
It is an act of kidnapping people by violent, forcible, and deceitful means, cutting off communications with the outside world while attempting to break their faith and confining them until they renounce their beliefs. The majority of victims are followers of the Unification Church, totaling over 4,300. The main perpetrators include Christian ministers who regard the Unification Church members as “heretics”, and lawyers and journalists who are hostile to the Unification movement and the Victory Over Communism movement. They stir up the parents’ heart, making them insecure, and demand large sums of money in reward for assisting them “rescue” their children.
