Watch the latest Richard Urban Show: All Lives Matter: https://youtu.be/ivlBBBCszyA
Why are we only hearing about George Floyd and not those black lives killed during the looting and shooting? Are these protests godly, Is the Black Lives Matter movement honest, and do they promote fear and hatred?

I love water. Water is the source of all
life. Water embraces and absorbs every-
thing. There are two rivers in Jardim: the
Miranda River and Plata River, which
are like yang and yin. The water in the
Plata River is clear, whereas the water
in the Miranda River is muddy. Usually,
people run away when there is muddy
water, but yesterday I saw a clear stream
of water being drawn into a whirlpool,
without any resistance. With dignity,
the clear water joined the muddy water
and changed its color. Yet as the days go
by, the water gains the strength to regain
its color and purify itself as it continues
flowing. (276-140, 1996.2.18)
Richard: Notice here that Rev. Moon is talking about harmony of different streams, which can be an anology of how all races and cultures can harmonize to create God’s culture. It is not about division and conflict.

The Blessing Ceremony of the Unifi-
cation Church is not simply a wedding
through which a man and a woman come
together and form a family. Until now,
all weddings were solely for the sake of
the people getting married. But our wed-
ding ceremony is significant and neces-
sary to set a condition to indemnify the
past and return joy to God. Therefore,
we conduct our ceremonies in a sacred
and splendid manner. Divine Principle
clearly explains to us that our wedding
ceremony alleviates God’s bitter grief
that was caused by the Fall of Adam and
Eve. It goes beyond the standard of hus-
band and wife, which Jesus was unable
to attain. (22-212, 1969.2.4)
World Scripture and the Teachings of
Sun Myung Moon
Truth and Universal Law
Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon
The entire world of being exists in a pair system. Human beings exist as men and women, and animals as male and female. Insects also exist as male and female. So do butterflies, birds, ants, and even minerals. The 107 elements do not come together randomly; when one element finds another that can be its reciprocal partner, nothing can stop them from uniting. But not even God can bring together two positives that repel each other. If there is a reciprocal quality between two things, they will come together automatically, and nothing can stop them. (203:353, June 28, 1990)
When we study the universe, we see that all beings exist by forming reciprocal relationships between masculine (yang) and feminine (yin). This holds in all cases. On the level of minerals, the bonding of positive and negative ions forms molecules. In plants, existence and propagation occur through the cooperation of pistil and stamen.
This duality is even more pronounced in animals. Birds, mammals, and all other types of animals exist as male and female. Finally, we human beings, who are God’s highest creation, are differentiated as men and women. The first man, Adam, and the first woman, Eve, were the first ancestors of humankind.
For what purpose did God create the universe with duality? The Creator separated all things into masculine and feminine so that the two could join by giving and receiving love. All species increase their numbers and carry on life through acts of love. (201:204-05, April 9, 1990)
The universe emerged out of relationships— between up and down, right and left, and front and back. Therefore, from insects to animals and humans, heaven and earth exist in a pair system. Even the five sensory organs exist in a pair system. So do the hands, feet, mind and body (however our mind and body are not united as one, and this is a most critical problem). Our eyes blink together. Our nostrils breathe together. Our lips move together when we speak. Sound resonates in both ears when we hear. We use both hands to make things. We cannot walk with one foot alone but require two feet. Everything in the universe needs a partner in order to function and act. Nothing can function alone. Hence, a being by itself cannot resemble God. (391:174, August 21, 2002)
