It is hard to believe that the Unification Church is sincerely facing up to the serious damage caused by issues such as large-sum donations. Its proposal for damage compensation is also self-righteous and will be difficult to accept.

Tomihiro Tanaka, head of the Japan branch of the Unification Church, formally known as the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, held a press conference for the first time in a year and three months to express an “apology” to former followers and others for the troubles such as with donations.

He denied, however, that the group was responsible for or systematically involved in such troubles, and then repeated his statements to the effect that the apology was “not an apology for wrongdoing” by the group toward former followers, giving reasons such as the victims had not been identified.

What is the difference between an “apology” and an “apology with a sense of wrongdoing”? In light of the group’s past response to the problems, it is difficult to say they have any remorse. Former followers who had fallen victim to the problems and second-generation family members whose parents are Unification Church followers without a doubt are unconvinced.
