Reverend Sun Myung Moon Turns 90

The founder of the Unification Church celebrated his 90th birthday today. Enjoying cake and ceremony with hundreds of followers, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon marked the occasion with his wife and his heir apparent son by his side.

Claiming that he is the Messiah who is here to complete Jesus' works, Moon founded his church in 1954. Among other things, the church is known for its mass weddings of complete strangers.

Control of the church is expected to pass to his youngest son, who claims he will have the role of an apostle, unlike the messianic powers of his father.

At 90 years old, Moon is in good health.
