US Congressmen crown the Messiah

I've linked before to stories about the influence of religious fringe figures on the US government. Here's another example: Sun Myung Moon, leader of the Unification Church (the "Moonies"), was crowned the Messiah in a US Senate building. Pictures here. See also this. [via]

Update: Kieran at Crooked Timber seems to have also just noticed this story.
