As the Moon Turns . . .

Washington Post/May 30, 2001

The soap opera of the many loves of Archbishop George A. Stallings Jr. continued apace yesterday when Washington PR executive Linda Greene -- whom the 53-year-old Stallings dumped to marry a 24-year-old Japanese woman handpicked by Unification Church leader Sun Myung Moon -- went on the radio to reveal details of their breakup.

The Post's Hamil R. Harris reports that WOL-AM host Joe Madison asked the 49 year-old Greene to describe her relationship with the defrocked Catholic priest, who on Sunday said his vows to Moon disciple Sayomi Kamimoto in a mass wedding in New York. "He was my companion for 10 years," Greene replied.

"My partner. My best friend. He was my all-in-all. But this is not a George-and-Linda issue." She added that Stallings broke the bad news to her over dinner May 5. "At the end of the meal he said, 'I am getting married.' I was shocked," she said. Madison asked, "Was there any indication that another woman was in his life?" Greene answered, "None -- and I would know."

She said she and Stallings normally talked between six and 12 times a day, but their phone calls fell off when he started working in the New York headquarters of the Rev. Moon's church several months ago. "He was spending days and weekends in the corporate headquarters of the Unification Church," Greene said.
