Freemasons & Satan

No discussion about Masons would be complete without exploring the name Albert Pike.In 1871, Albert Pike (1809-1891) published a book titled Morals and Dogma. This is the book conspiracists use to make unfounded (and uneducated) anti-Mason claims.Anti-Mason antagonists and conspiracists claim Morals and Dogma represents some kind of primary doctrine, or manifesto of Freemasonry. This couldn’t be further from the truth. “Morals and Dogma is literally a textbook in comparative studies. It explains what ancient and foreign cultures have believed and how it affected their religions.”[3]

Morals and Dogma is a massive book that is very concerned with tracing where cultural and religious ideas came from. Pike was trying to tell a rough, and not especially well-educated, population to search for the origins of customs and rituals, because he truly felt that a deeper understanding of what came before made a man more religious and contemplative. Morals and Dogma is simply a philosophical work.

Generally Speaking

Far from being a major force – a cornerstone – in masonic teachings, Morals and Dogma and Albert Pike had an extremely small sphere of influence among Freemasons.

For about 60 years after the book was published, Morals and Dogma was given as a gift to all who joined the Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite in America. The Southern Jurisdiction of Scottish Rite in America covers thirty-five southern and western states.

It’s very important to understand the Scottish Rite is a subsidiary body (a subset) of Freemasonry – the Scottish Rite is NOT Freemasonry itself. In other words, all Scottish Rite members are Masons but not all Masons are Scottish Rite members. In fact, only about 20% of American Masons have ever been Scottish Rite members. This means about 80% of American Masons have little or no knowledge of General Albert Pike’s work and 100% of Masons outside America have little or no knowledge of General Albert Pike’s work. This is hardly evidence of Morals and Dogma as some kind of Mason Manual.

Sadly for the conspiracists of the world, Albert Pike never exercised any authority or influence over anything other than what was at the time a very small subset of North American Freemasonry, the Scottish Rite, Southern Jurisdiction.

Uncle Albert and Lucifer

Buried in the 860-plus pages of Morals and Dogma, conspiracists managed to find the 5 sentences proving beyond a shadow of a doubt Albert Pike was a Satanist and that he wrote secret Satan worship into the degrees of the Scottish Rite:

LUCIFER, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish Souls? Doubt it not![4]

(Cue the scary music) There it is! Hiding in plain sight, right? Quick! Bless yourself and drink some holy water to cleanse your soul! I mean, we all know Lucifer is Satan! Right? Not so quick. There is a problem and it all got . . .

. . . Lost In Translation

The word “Lucifer” shows up in the Old Testament in the King James Version of the Bible in Isaiah 14:12 and nowhere else: “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!” This is the one and only time Lucifer is referenced in the King James Version of the Bible.

Question: How could a Hebrew manuscript, written hundreds of years before there was a Roman language (Latin), contain a word from the Roman language?

Answer: It can’t, and, it shouldn’t today.[8]

The poetic version of the King James Version was translated into English and published in 1611. It was translated into English NOT from the original Hebrew texts, but from the Catholic Vulgate Latin texts that had been authorized by St. Jerome (who was commissioned by Pope Damasus I) in the fourth century. Unfortunately, starting with the Latin text instead of the original Hebrew texts created a few translation problems.

According to biblical scholars, the original text of the 14th chapter of Isaiah is NOT about a fallen angel, but about a fallen Babylonian king who had persecuted the Israelites. Satan is never mentioned in the chapter, by name or by inference, you’ll see Isaiah clearly refers to the subject of his writing as an evil king, and most definitely a man. The Hebrew texts referred to the king by his ceremonial title, Helal, son of Shahar, which is translated to mean “Day Star, son of the Dawn.” The name Lucifer does not (and cannot[8]) appear anywhere within the Hebrew text.

In Latin, Lucifer is the name given by Roman astronomers to the Morning Star, the bright planet seen in the dawn sky. We know it by another Roman name – Venus. Lucifer actually comes from the Latin term lucem ferre, meaning “the bearer of light,” and (the star) Venus was called this because it appeared in the sky just before the sun. The symbolism was that Venus (the star called Lucifer) was the herald that announced the arrival of the sun in morning.

Unfortunately, while authoring the King James Version by translating the Latin text (instead of the original Hebrew texts), St. Jerome mistranslated the king’s flowery title “Day Star, son of the Dawn,” into the Roman word Lucifer.

St. Jerome used the word lucifer in several places in his Latin translation:

But notice in Job and Peter the Latin word “lucifer” was replaced with an interpretation consistent with the original Hebrew text – “morning” and “day star,” respectively. Yet in Isaiah the Latin word “lucifer” survived the translation to English and was not replaced with an interpretation of the original Hebrew text.

What would be a proper interpretation of the original Hebrew text at Isaiah 14:12? Below is an exact scan from an original 1611 King James Version of the Bible. In the margin of Isaiah 14:12 we find the KJV translators themselves gave us an alternate rendering of the “lucifer” reference, namely “O day-starre” (“O Day Star”).

This mistranslation has even been recognized and corrected in more recent versions of the Bible[6]. As an example, the New English Bible now correctly translates Isaiah 14:12 as “How you have fallen from heaven, bright morning star …”

Even Bibles in other languages don’t have the word Lucifer. In Spanish Bibles, for example, Isaiah 14:12 reads: “¡Cómo has caído del cielo, lucero de la mañana!” where “Lucero de la mañana”[link] translates to “Morning star” – consistent with the original Hebrew text.

So the Hebrew text Helal, son of Shahar (“Day Star, son of the Dawn”) is translated into the Latin word “Lucifer” but the English translation is not of the original Hebrew text, instead the Latin word “Lucifer” is simply carried over to the King James Version of the Bible[8].

Then, beginning with John Milton’s 1667 book Paradise Lost[9], a metamorphosis took place. Milton’s book branded Lucifer in the Western mind as a proper name for Satan.

Lucifer (the morning star) was transformed into a disobedient angel, cast out of heaven to rule eternally in hell.

Theologians, writers, poets, and the occasional mystic compounded the error far beyond anything in the single reference in Isaiah by interweaving the myth with the doctrine of the Fall (Genesis chapter 3). Today in Christian tradition, Lucifer is synonymous with Satan, the Devil, and – ironically – the Prince of Darkness. This irony wasn’t lost on Albert Pike – remember, he wrote, “LUCIFER, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness!” [emphasis mine] The General certainly seemed to recognize this paradox. He didn’t know what you now know.

The word lucifer never came to be seen as a proper name of Satan in Latin as it did in English. This explains why the Latin word “Lucifer” is still used to this day as a title of Christ in the Exsultet hymn sung during the Easter Vigil in the Roman Rite:

“Lucifer” is nothing more than an ancient Latin name for the morning star, the bringer of light, day star, and the like.

This truth can be very confusing for Christians who identify Christ himself as the morning star, a term used as a central theme in many Christian sermons and in Revelation 22:16 itself, where Christ refers to himself as morning star: “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

The Latin Church understands the Lucifer mistranslation, hence the Exsultet hymn (above) with the word lucifer in full display and without contradiction. Predictably, every time the Vatican has the Easter Vigil and the word lucifer is spoken or sung, conspiracists around the world soil their diapers claiming the Pope is invoking Satan.

No matter what your Sunday-school teacher told you, no matter what they told you at vacation Bible school, no matter what Milton wrote in Paradise Lost, the Lucifer referred to in Isaiah 14 – the ONLY reference to Lucifer in the King James Version – is NOT Satan.

For the record, the terms Lucifer and Luciferian do not appear in any recognized ritual or lecture of Freemasonry, including the Scottish Rite rituals written by Albert Pike himself.

Pastor Pike

(Note: The pictured quote below, and all such pictured quotes henceforth, are scanned from an 1871 version of Morals and Dogma[4] by Albert Pike.)

The above quote is most often cited by conspiracists as proof Freemasonry is a religion.

First i’d like to point out the word “religion” appears more than 260 times in General Pike’s book, Morals and Dogma. Unlike many (if not all) conspiracists, I took the time and made the effort to track down and download a bonafide, scanned copy of “Morals and Dogma” by Albert Pike (PDF) (42 MEG) dated 1871 and I began reading. Well, dear conspiracists, it’s time for another diaper change.

As an example, do conspiracists ever tell you of these quotes by Albert Pike from the same book, Morals and Dogma?

In your personal life, do you have a personal creed – a set of convictions – to which you religiously adhere? Me? Personally? I work out 3 times a week – religiously. I have other personal rules which i follow religiously. I follow my own code of conduct – religiously. I was once a Cub Scout (It’s sort of like a junior Boy Scout) and they had an oath they expected each Cub Scout to follow religiously:

  • To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
  • To help other people at all times;
  • To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Albert Pike spelled out some rules, an oath, for Freemasonry – which he believed Masons should follow religiously. Here is a non-exhaustive list culled from Morals and Dogma:

  • Thou shalt adore, revere, and love Him (the God of your choosing).
  • Thy religion shall be, to do good because it is a pleasure to thee, and not merely because it is a duty.
  • Thou shalt unceasingly war against vice!
  • Thou shalt honor thy parents!
  • Thou shalt instruct the young!
  • Thou shalt protect and defend infancy and innocence!
  • Thou shalt cherish thy wife and thy children!
  • Thou shalt love thy country, and obey its laws!
  • Thou shalt avoid and flee from insincere friendships!
  • Thou shalt in everything refrain from excess.
  • Thou shalt fear to be the cause of a stain on thy memory!
  • Thou shalt allow no passions to become thy master!
  • Thou shalt study to know men; that thereby thou mayest learn to know thyself!
  • Thou shalt ever seek after virtue!
  • Thou shalt be just!
  • Thou shalt avoid idleness!
  • But the great commandment of Masonry is this: “A new commandment give I unto you: that ye love one another! He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, remaineth still in the darkness.”

Wow! Those Masons sound like an unruly bunch, don’t they? Wouldn’t want to meet them in a dark alley!

But once you see the word “religion” as an oath of commitment, a promise of adherence to a set of ethics, you begin to see the true meaning in Albert Pike’s use of the word(s) “religion” and “religion of Masonry.”

You see? This is religion, but not a religion. It is faith – but not worship attached to any one altar. It is the ground which underlies all religions, all churches, all creeds, all sects.

Now let’s go back to the original quote used by conspiracists to assert Freemasonry is a religion. This time, i’ll show you something the conspiracists will never show you. The words highlighted in yellow are the words conspiracists want you to see. The words highlighted in the greenish highlight is the remainder of Albert Pike’s words the conspiracists don’t want you to see. His quote should now make perfect sense to you.

Diaper change complete.

Closing The Book

I hope i’ve done a fit and proper job of shedding some light on the mysteries and myths of Albert Pike and his book Morals and Dogma. But just in case you’re a conspiracist and you’re still not convinced of your own wayward thinking, i’d like to present to you one more snippet of information for which there is no conspiratorial escape: The Preface from Morals and Dogma.

In my research of conspiratorial websites i actually found a few with copies of Morals and Dogma, but none of the conspiratorial websites i researched had a copy of Morals and Dogma with the preface intact. Here is why …

The preface of Morals and Dogma was not written by Pike himself. The preface was, and is, the official statement of The Supreme Council, the governing body of Scottish Rite Masonry that published his work. It has been ratified by every succeeding Supreme Council, up to this very day. Here is part of the preface conspiracists have conspired to keep secret.

In the first paragraph, “He” is Albert Pike.

The first paragraph asserts Morals and Dogma as a compilation of many other writers and Albert Pike as the compiler, taking “little of the merit of authorship.”

The second paragraph contains these golden nuggets: “The teachings of these Readings are not sacramental,” “Every one is entirely free to reject and dissent from whatsoever herein may seem to him to be untrue or unsound,” and “Of course, the ancient theosophic[10] and philosophic speculations are not embodied as part of the doctrines of the Rite.”

It is the second paragraph that really deals the final body blows to any conspiracy theory arising from Morals and Dogma:

  1. The book is not sacramental (little or no importance or significance),
  2. Everyone is free to dissent from any of its contents (Adherence or belief is optional), and
  3. None of the ancient theosophic and philosophic speculations are embodied in any doctrines of the Rite.

Case closed. Or is it? (Cue scary music)

Using a Latin word in an English translation of the original Hebrew text was a prima facie mistake.

    No need to stick a “religion” label on Freemasonry- it apparently is. A self righteous list of rules -EXACTLY what Christ came to negate. Lucifer is considered a liberator in occultism- example Gnosticism. He is considered a light-bearer of knowledge. Those who have more knowledge (or at least think they do) than the rest of the population.
    Albert goes on to say that The Sun-represented God – “a life giving generative force” To say that Freesonry worships the devil is in fact a misnomer. I dont think THEY believe in a God or devil- at least not Albert Pike. at least not in a practical way- or the christian God for that matter.

  2. How do i join Freemason. I am interested pls connect me.

  3. I am acquainted with many masons actually.
    And I don’t vote.
    Please do some research into the “alternative media” + what it professes. You’ve been in a box for so long you can’t see the forest for the trees.
    Have a nice life.

  4. With that unshakable moral superiority and intellectual despotism, you can’t be anything other than a liberal. Only people I now that wouldn’t know, or just outright ignore, a good idea, even if it was dry humping their leg.
    One thing- you don’t know any Masons. The only person your fooling with that statement is you. Honestly, you link to some lunatic on a nothing website, who prints this drivel with contribution? REALLY?

  5. All I can say is – ive met many masons – but none match up to the idiot you are – if you truly are a mason anyway.
    And as an advocate for this group – again, if you are a mason, I’ve never met such a pathetic candidate – relying on insults and slurs and outright denials to counter cast iron evidence is no way to respond to anything. I would do some research into the group, if I were you, and learn how to interract with other humans. So far, there’s nothing there!

  6. I’m sorry- you think because someone can write a blog post that it is evidence, least of all incontrovertible evidence?
    This is why your life is stuck in the hopeless rut that it is. Anyone can write this crap. I am not go into great specifics, by my grand dad was the grand master of one of the most prominent lodges in existence. There is no evil conspiracy with them. Try and consider this- when the Soviet Union finally went to the ash heap of history there were a huge amount of intelligence and secret histories of theirs that were revealed by former agents of the KGB who were just looking to get out. There were four completely credible, and heavily documented, defections where these agents crossed over for the simple fact that they hadn’t been paid in months and had families to support (two of them simply backed their cars up to the near deserted headquarters and emptied the files into the trunk of their cars) I bring this up because it is part and parcel to the Communists goals.
    Anyway, since these were agents from completely different sectors, fleeing a failed state with no internal controls, it gave ours and other friendly agencies the ability to cross check the data and confirm its viability.
    One thing that was gained was the Soviet order of battle for when they attacked and invaded the US. There were the goals you would expect- taking over the TV and radio stations, shutting down the newspapers, etc., but 4th on the order, ahead of even going to sporting goods stores to find who the registered gun owners were, was to not only seize all Masonic lodges and take all records, but then to completely destroy them.
    Why in the world would a proven cancer to all of humanity be so concerned with one agency? Especially one that accepted members that walked through the front door?
    Honestly, do yourself a favor and look a little closer at the radical left if you want to find the real conspiracy’s. Also, read a few books, like Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky, the real world prepper for all who wish to destroy the freedoms of the world. Also give a shot to 1984 by George Orwell, who is starting to look a lot more like a prophet than simply a writer, Animal Farm, another great one, or one that in my opinion that is overlooked far too often- Brave New World.
    (just so you know, and proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, is that a great majority of these conspiracy’s, and the groups that promote this crap, sprang mostly from KGB disinformation programs from the 60’s and 70’s. Hell, the Green party in Europe was entirely funded and directed by the Soviets for nearly 25 years before they blew apart.)
    But please save me the brunt of your idiocy by sending some bizarre and deluded rant from some obscure, and dubious, webpage. Really, what is the difference between what you forwarded to me and if I were to go onto my webpage and announce that I was in league with our soon to be overlords from Mars. Please show me what the rational difference is.

  7. Its typical for freemasons to defend their pagan nonsense – even Boy Scouts or Girl Guides would defend their troops in the face of adversity – this is de rigeur, and quite normal for any self respecting group member. But, the difference between this group and others is that freemasons are able to act with impunity, anywhere, as if there is no law of the land – that is: a freemason must always look out for and protect his “brother” mason – even if it means ignoring the law of the land, even in the most serious of circumstances. And they get away with it, as the highest in society, from the queen of England to the pope himself, down to High Court judges and high ranking police etc. are always there to make sure “things go right” for a fellow mason who has fallen foul of those laws. This is why this “secret society” is so insidious, and dangerous. And secretive.
    Anyway, I’ve read numerous times the lower ranks in freemasonry have no clue whatsoever as to what actually goes on above the 33rd degree. What kind of club is that? This is one truly secretive society! And we hear constantly that these masons do much “charity work” So what? So do numerous other agencies totally disconnected from this club, who do not have to justify their existence.
    “Masonic Cops” [1997]

    1. There is no higher rank than 33rd, so not only is your comment misguided but ignorant as well. The ONLY thing that Mason’s have ever been concerned with is the rights of man under God. Those rights such as freedom of speech- even that to which you do not agree- are protected and enshrined. The right to defend yourself, your family, and your home. Doubtless you have a snappy, and totally brainless, reply.
      As to Masons protecting other masons? Only in hostile territory such as China, Cuba, etc. Where there is a law of the land that protects the innocent and powerless, the Mason’s only recruit and fundraise. If you want to get into the nuts and bolts, there are many investments to be found, but all are legal.
      My suggestion is to quite smoking dope, go outside and get ssome fresh air, and maybe meet that special guy. I have a fantastic woman in my life, and it does help to keep you involved in the outside world.

      1. O really! I’m going to stop at the 1st inaccuracy in “dougcolo””s misleading waffle – there are degrees higher than 33, and here’s the evidence, which took 20 seconds to google: .

        The rest is just the usual bs one expects from a member of a “secret society” who think they’re above the law.

        1. You, “dougcolo” are a disinfo agent who deliberately misleads!! That you have proved!

  8. Nice article, it is a shame to see such ingrained ignorance in the comments.

    To those curious people, I wonder if you had ever considered that the world has been conned by the Church of Rome and its off shoots, for greed , money and power for the ego’s involved, and that many of those groups you happily throw stones at could help you to liberate your consciousness if you had but the courage to let go of your infantile belief system. It is right there in the history of the Church, alongside the liberation written in the Bible for those with Eye’s that See.

    In fact after having studied a number of Eastern and Sufi traditions I felt called to Freemasonry a number of years ago, and I actually formed a stronger relationship with the Christian story than any Church was ever able to create.

    The idea of a dead white man in the sky is a childish understanding of the Universe, and such a limiting belief system. “If I am good, Daddy in the sky will look after me when I die” is what it is saying.

    Liberate yourself, question everything, and seek with your Eyes and your Heart open !

    1. My thoughts, and feelings, exactly. There is another way, and I support the Masons just for that fact. I have thought of joining, just not sure where to even start.
      Thanks fo the replyr

      1. You, “dougcolo” are a disinfo agent who deliberately misleads!! That you have proved!

  9. I think you are missing the point of the significance here. If we are going to use the word “doctrine” we should be respectful of the ideas the work presents. From a doctrinal standpoint, first, it disembowels all religions, and replaces itself and the Kabbalah (which we know is connected to freemasonry) as the first of all religions. Then it introduces the path from alchemy to witchcraft and includes pieces of believable “ceremony.” Believable, to me, because of the strong linkage between symbolism and magic. Overall, it’s heavy explanation of what happens to political societies, and the reasoning it gives for faith in basic masonic principles, symbols, and numerology add up to AT LEAST the possibility that it mirrors masonic teachings. Believe it or not as true, I think the thought path laid down is consistent with masonic principles. It was passed around masonic temples and somebody paid for copies. Just saying that if (as I was when I found this) you were looking at a generalized playbook of masonic thought at a teachable level, this is probably close in its major tenets (what the symbols mean, why Christians are stupid for denying magic, how to make your own gold, that sort of thing. :-P)

  10. how to join Illuminati and make rich?

  11. A well written and documented article. Thank you for taking the time to do the research.

  12. Rule #1: “Thou shalt adore, revere, and love Him (the God of your choosing)”?

    Are you saying “the God of your choosing” can be any including Satan?

    Satanists are welcome within Freemasonry?

    1. I don’t believe that is the intent.

      1. Allow me to correct your statement. You forgot to put the period in between ” I don’t believe,” and “That is the intent.”

  13. Freemasons are corrupt, that is why Police join them.

  14. You haven’t convinced me at all

  15. Lucifer is the fallen angel and the father of lies, as seen in this article and some of the comments. Deceit and confusion are his trade marks.

  16. I know free masons and i’ve had them in my family. They are a nefarious group. As you say, they do good, they give to charity, they want attention for their good deeds, they are not a humble bunch.

    Thanks for the article. You spent A LOT of time researching this issue from your own viewpoint. As i figured, the masons wrote good things about the masons, Mr Mason.

  17. I recommend John Salza 32nd degree freemason who left freemasonry and wrote few books about them.
    ”masonry unmasked”

  18. I’m trying to look at both sides of this and come to my own truth. Morals and Dogma is Plagiarized from “History of Magic” published in 1860 written by Eliphas Levi.

    Pike himself was into majic. The Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) Order of the Temple of the East is an off shoot of Masonry and was started by the wickedest man to live. The Beast666. Mr Alester Crowley… A 33 degree Mason. Look within these Satanic organization, here they will tell you that Masonary & Satanism have similar rituals and symbols. Any Mason will tell you that Symbolism is one of the most important aspects of the order… So why would the pentagram be one of the symbols they share?

    I could ramble for days but will spear you. Without God there could be no Lucifer. This is way you have to believe in a God to be a Mason.

    Very interesting site. Some good reads!

  20. Superb piece of writing, and is certainly, on the level.
    Lucifer, is the Rising Star of the morning, or Venus, which represents Wisdom. Venus has “five houses” or positions as seen in its travels in the sky. The positions at farthest points will form a connect-a-dot inverted pentagram. Meaning, “Look for Wisdom”. The morning reference is, “Let Wisdom rule over your day and all that you do”. Illiterates at the time were given a graphic to remember all this. It also veiled the then “secretive” fraternity’s “doings”. Things have changed and feel free to read and research it. Excellent reading and requires an expanded interest to seek its knowledge and wisdom. It will make a Good man better, but cannot make a bad man, Good.
    I am not a Freemason though I am, very Mason-like. When I had the time, I never had the money. When I had the money, I lacked the time. Story of my life. I do have a 94 year old Master Mason in the family that was shocked that I researched the Wisdom and not the tourist stuff like handshakes, etc.
    Many people thinking that I am a Freemason ask me and do not believe me when I tell them that I am not a Freemason, and conclude with, “What is Freemasonry? Four words: An engine of achievement.”
    As a group, they help their communities while themselves being humble and not receiving personal attention, and this teaches humility, and to walk humbly on this earth.
    That’s all, folks.

    1. I know free masons and i’ve had them in my family. They are not a nefarious group. As you say, they do good, they give to charity, they don’t want attention for their good deeds, they are a humble bunch.

      Thanks for the kudos on the article. I spent A LOT of time researching this issue. As i figured, the conspiracists had the masons all wrong.

      1. We see your collusion. Why not delve into the real issue freemasonry and the moorish legacy? Is that why Europeans wear our fezzes? Freemasonry is a malignant tumor and it’s intent is to expunge the family of man. Freemasons do charity just as politicians and other deceitful parasites. I’ve stumbled upon many of these diluted pages that provide nothing but a smoke screen for the real issues. I’m glad those like you are making yourself know in plain sight. The moors real owners of both the fez and the origin of your bastardized mystery school teachings held under the banner of Masonic lodges and fraternal orders. Typical European degeneracy. Albert Pike was also the man who started what your novice researcher would call the KKK. The dragons are waking up sir.

        1. Yada, yada, yada … the world is all darth vader and stuff. 🙂

          1. As opposed to your view which is what? The world is all utopian and stuff? Btw what’s your motivation for this site? It’s a legit question.

        2. My Dad was a 32nd degree mason, my grandfather was 33rd and the grand master of the Balboa lodge. The reason that certain demographics like to trash the Mason’s is because at their core what they support and believe in is democracy.
          Ever since the communist manifesto, they have been anathema, evil personified, by the left. The unfortunate trickle down is that some fringe, as in lunatic fringe, have also picked up the standard and have tried to demonize and discredit them.
          I grew up reading the monthly magazine, hearing the tales, and seeing the results. For a community that see’s G.Washington as one of the best of their kind, and quotes often and liberally from the constitution and the bill of rights, you make yourself appear as what I imagine you must be- the lunatic fringe.
          Please, adjust the tin foil hat, some of the satellite beams are bouncing or coming in at a bad angle.

        3. What an ignorant person you are. You seem to rejoice in it. I hope it at least brings YOU some happiness now and in the future (though I doubt it will).

          1. Oh, and btw, my previous comment was aimed at “Louise” (in case it reached someone else)

      2. Aww you deleted my comment. Noble Drew Ali warned us about you. Apparently I provided too much light for the darkness you project here. Remember Mr Mason you are but a low tier puppet to your fraternal organization. Hence, why you were sent out in the public forum to spread disinformation.

        1. I didn’t delete anything. Or maybe it’s a conspiracy!!! Dun! Dun! Duuuun!

          1. Contrary to your assumptions you are not speaking to a conspiracy theorist but a psychology and Neurolinguistic specialist. With a minor in physics. Most notably worked in the quantum physics field for 20+ years. I’m 74 years old and befriended many masons. Again, you may get off and over the heads of many. However, the one’s that matter see through and beyond what you peddle here.

            1. I don’t believe you, you’re making an appeal to authority.
