It was during a 1969 stint as a Las Vegas showgirl that Adrienne Dellas-Thornton joined the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church. "I found God in Sin City," she jokes now.

Sun Myung Moon's controversial Unification Church. Steivel was well aware of the questions that had been raised about the decade-old company.
