With all your might you have now resorted to out-right lies to promote your cause. The success of this site over the last 10 years has proven you will never squelch the insatiable thrust for information and the truth that we present.
One of the first things anti-masons use to promote their lies is the figure of two knights.
'Outsiders' say these Two Knights are riding the same horse because they are
'Gay', Right? ... WRONG!!! These two Knights
Templar are riding the same horse because they are 'brothers' riding together,
to fight the same cause for the same reason.
The Cause; Protection of the weak and oppressed, relief of the distressed and defense of the Christian religion. Stephen Dafoe's page says, the Seal they are on was that of Grand Master Bertrand De Blancfort.
The image represented the Knights vow of poverty. They were so poor, not every Knight could afford his own horse.
Another theory is, The representation of duality or conflict that existed within the order at the time.

Or see the Templars and The Holy Grail by Stephen Defoe
From Stephen Defoe's web page: The explanation behind this answer, unfortunately, remains somewhat complicated and, to a degree, very speculative. The key, as I have learned during the writing of The Labyrinth Of The Grail, is to constantly "look beyond" what appears at first to be the true answer. The simple reasoning is that why else would both the Church and State pursue the Templars to the far ends of the earth and torture them beyond compassion. Obviously, the accusations of blasmephy were only an excuse to justify their actions. It really doesn't take any skill to recognize that the inner circle of the Templars possessed something far more valuable than mere silver and gold - something that threatened the very being of the Church and State.
What the Templars possessed, and became sworn guardians of, was the unbroken line of "ancient knowledge" which among other things allowed the ancient mariner to circumnavigate the world. It is now coming to light that trade among the "Old World" and the "New World" had regularly occurred throughout the Neolithic to Roman eras by "societies who were in on the secret." Hints of these visits and settlement now appear to be revealing themselves through a variety of sources including classic mythology, Indian legend and maritime folklore, as well as through recent archaeological discoveries.
This knowledge was pure power. Societies that not only possessed the ability to track the sun, moon and the stars, but possessed the inherent wisdom to maintain the "secret" of being able to fix longitudinal positions long before it became common practice, were societies in constant danger of being exterminated. On the other hand, those societies who were able to exploit their advantage to the fullest such as the earliest Templars enjoyed a status rivaled by none.
In other words, the Templars, and those who came before them, were accorded the ability to "look beyond" standard Church dogma to places yet to be "discovered" - the mythical Otherworld.
Think about it for a moment. If you possessed an unlimited source of raw material, fertile land, and mineral wealth, would you reveal it to the world? No, I don't think that you would, especially if you were in the business of "brokering" peace among nations. The Templars would surely have considered this knowledge to be a "God-given gift." Thereby, the Templars would have considered themselves to be the guardians of a direct "conduit" between God and man. The Templars would have also believed that this conduit of knowledge straight from the heavens exposed itself through the Mysteries of Christ. To the Templars, this embodiment of heavenly knowledge was The Holy Grail.
You may ask how was it that longitudinal coordinates could be established in pre-Christian times prior to the development of the chronometer. Again, the answer is the simplest, yet most complicated, of all possibilities. Since the concept of time began, man has turned his eyes to the sky and followed the paths of the heavenly bodies. Evolving from this activity was the establishment of strategic viewing positions, which allowed the "Ancients" to establish "roseline" (meridians) around the world. These ancient stone circles and menhirs found around the world, such as Stonehenge, were used to track the known paths or circuits of the eclipses of the sun and the moon.
It was this recognition of "order" and "pattern" in all that made up the universe, which resulted in the development of "sacred geometry." As such, sacred geometry was derived through man's ability to reason, which means that all men possessed the "Grail knowledge" through the "art of reasoning." Come to think of it, there is nothing really "sacred" about it, other than the knowledge that certain Egyptian "royal lines" came to assume it as their God-given right.
Indeed, modern society should not be looking to certain royal houses to capture the "lost art," but to its historical guardians including the Celtic Druids and Irish, and medieval Knights Templar. Hence, the seeker of the true Holy Grail must follow the path to the source of Celtic tradition and its Indo-European roots. Only when one understands their roots will one better understand themselves. And for the seeker who is able to arrive at the proper application of knowledge and understanding, wisdom and truth will be revealed.
Coming full circle, these four "commodities" were the "Grail treasures" that the inner core of Knights Templar possessed. Unfortunately, even sailing half way around the world in A.D. 1398 to what was considered a New Jerusalem (modern-day Nova Scotia) could not prevent the Templars from being relentlessly pursued by both Church and State. Therefore, it was in the wilderness of A(r)cadia that the 14th century spiritual leader of the Knights Templar, Prince Henry Sinclair, buried the Holy Grail until such time that a more enlightened society could make better use of its virtues.
In this circumstance, one can only conclude that the Holy Grail was the recorded knowledge of the Ancients, set down by those initiates who were willing to sacrifice their lives to perpetuate in words the one true connection between heaven and earth.
Remember that the Celtic soul lies in the head. Thus, the Templars did not allow their hearts to rule their actions. Similarly, the Holy Grail awaits those who practice the simple art of reasoning, enabling them to look beyond the trappings that await them on their journey. End.
Please keep in mind that those individuals who know the least about Masonry are the most likely to post inaccurate - sometimes slanderous and false information! This includes X-Masons who have websites like 'Freemasonry Watch' which are designed to lie to the public about Masonry under the guise of the promotion of Christianity. What they present as facts are nothing but suppositions and guessing. There is not bit of evidence anywhere that what they say is true. That doesn't stop them from trying. They use Freemasonry signs and symbols and reference them to the devil and all things evil. Folks, the devil is the figment of somebody's imagination and there is no such thing. But this lie has been used to scare people into obedience to the church for centuries and it still works! That lie is the one that should be exposed and we do that on our "Forbidden series", with the name of the pope that invented Satan. (automatic scroll down)One comment we found on the Freemason Watch site was,"Club 33 (refering to Walt Disney) runs the CIA" (Skull and Bones-Yale University) but this has nothing to do with Masonry nor does the number 33 used in this context. see Club 33. We think that the Disney organization has it's hands full of other work and would not be associated with the CIA. This is completely silly.
'Skull and Crossbones' is a Yale University Fraternity for the super rich and super elite.
"The actual number "322" that appears under the Skull and Crossbones on the Order's emblem is believed to indicate the year of its founding-1832-and the fact that it is the second lodge within an international system." However the CIA and Skull and Bones are clearly linked. George Bush Sr. was director of the CIA and is a Bones member as is his son. The x-masons using the name of Jesus to promote these lies will eventually get them exactly what they deserve. If you want real facts check this out.. Dispelling the lies .... Hoaxes and Frauds. and Did the Freemasons...??
They attack Walt Disney accusing him of belonging to the Skull and Bones Society which is a dangerous Secret Society that has nothing to do with Masonry. Quote: "I think we're getting closer to firm evidence that Walt was never awarded the 33rd Degree Masonry level. Instead he was awarded the DeMolay equivalent at a ceremony that took place in a masonic temple." This, at least, according to a new article by Wade Sampson and a some follow up from Jim Korkis. Matt E. points out that the 33rd Degree Freemason is honorary one. So Walt could have been given the honorary award of a 33rd degree Freemason and never belonged to the Masons. But aside from that... Walt's name will not be found on the Skull and Bones membership list either.
Let us point out; This page was not meant to be in support of a political agenda. This is strictly the truth revealed and all of you should pay attention to the hoaxes and frauds that were conducted by the Bush controlled government. All they wanted was control of the Iraq Oil fields and they have perpetrated murder on a massive scale and organized a huge hoax on the American people to get it.
A 60 Minutes report. Skull and Bones is based at Yale University and President Bush is a member. He is NOT a Mason! See the Membership list. Masonry has always supported the Commander and Chief and Masons, as a general rule do not engage in political debates because it is forbidden, but something is dredfully wrong with this picture and we feel an obligation to expose it for what it was. We sincerely apologize if the truth offends anybody or the evidence we present is more than overwhelming. A horriffic crime has been committed against the American people!
Over the years, Bones has included presidents, cabinet officers, spies, Supreme Court justices, captains of industry, and often their sons and lately their daughters, a social and political network like no other.
Privileged Skull and Bones members mocked the assault on Abner Louima by crying out repeatedly, "Take that plunger out of my ass!"
Skull and Bones members hurled obscene sexual insults ("lick my bumhole") at initiates as they were forced to kneel and kiss a skull at the feet of the initiators.
Other members acted out the tableau of a throat-cutting ritual murder.
It's important to remember this is not some fraternity initiation. It is an initiation far more secret-and far more significant, in terms of real power in the United States-than that of the Cosa Nostra. If the Bushes are "the WASP Corleones"-as the ever more stingingly waspish Maureen Dowd has suggested-this is how their "made men" (and women) are made.* It's an initiation ceremony that has bonded diplomats, media moguls, bankers and spies into a lifelong, multi-generational fellowship far more influential than any fraternity. It was-and still remains-the heart of the heart of the American establishment.
Further revelations turned up by the Observer Bones Investigation Unit include:
The words to the secret Skull and Bones "death mantra."
Copies of the Skull and Bones tax returns, obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests, raise questions about the legitimacy of the secret society's claim to charitable tax-exempt deduction status-particularly relevant considering recent criticism of the Bush tax plan for favoring the privileged few.
A possible explanation emerged in the course of the initiation ceremony for George W.'s decision to run for President in the first place.
'the devil equals DEATH'! One More thing: Oh, yes-before we get to the night-vision videotape, there was one more thing, the embarrassing part of the audiotape, the OOGA-BOOGA part. Part of the ceremony on the tape involved an initiation master ordering the neophytes to fetch bones and uttering the (I guess) fake Tarzan-movie "native" chant "OOGA BOOGA." It left me feeling embarrassed for Skull and Bones. Hard to ever take seriously again anyone whose defining life-mission moment includes an OOGA BOOGA.
First they were led forward by a figure in a devil costume. Not really a sinister, Satanic-looking figure but, as one of the team put it, "More like Satan's Little Helper."
A shrill, menacing and sometimes blood-curdling chorus of cries and screams and imprecations accompanied the emergence:
"Hurry, neophyte!" "Run, neophyte!" see Conspiracy
Video of Bush when he admits He is a member of Skull and Bones. This interview has Bush emphaticaly stating He's NOT going to loose the election! Running against John Kerry who is also a Bonesman, Bush had operations in place that guaranteed him a win in the 2000 elections. Jeb Bush, his own brother helped him win Florida. The citizenship of Florida figured it out and Jeb Bush did not get re-elected. The republicans even created an e-mail hoax that were meant to cause Democrats not to vote in Califorinia and several other states. It Didn't Work! see Hoax They even tryed to split the electorial vote in Califorinia to gain Republican votes for the 2008 elections. Hundreds of 'dirty tricks' were being played out in plain sight for everyone to see.
More evidence is on 'Attack on America' The 9-11 hoax in 2001. More Skull and Bones info is on page 2. (automatic scroll down) The information below details the real purpose of Skull and Bones. This organization in fact is just the opposite of Masonry. It supports covert operations designed to deceive the public while taking away our freedoms once guaranteed by the constitution. Even President Kennedy warned us about this 'secret society' in 1961. The full text, available from the Kennedy Library in Massachusetts, shows that, in context, Kennedy was criticizing the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). This excerpt makes it clear that Kennedy’s concern was government, not fraternities. THIS GOT HIM KILLED!
He went on to say; "And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know." But it was happening anyway ... Right under Your Noses!
Bush also signed legislation that jails or fines journalists who publish sensitive leaks, essentially reviving the Official Secrecy Act that President Clinton vetoed.
Fact: President Bush tapped five fellow Bonesmen to join his administration. He selected William Donaldson, Skull and Bones 1953, the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Like the President, he's took the Bones oath of silence. Assistant Attorney General Robert McCallum, a member of Bush's 1968 Skull and Bones class. Edward McNally, the general counsel of the Office on Homeland Security and senior associate counsel on national security. The number two and number three guys in the Justice Department, the guy that puts out all of Bush's secrecy memos. His assistant Attorney General, Peter D. Keisler went to Yale both for undergraduate and law school. As an undergraduate, Keisler was the Chairman of the Party of the Right and the President of the Yale Political Union. He is a major Bonesman. He founded the Federalist Society which operates Under the United States Code. The Federalist Society is legally organized as a tax-exempt nonprofit organization and is expressly forbidden to engage in "political and lobbying activities".
Members of the society have debated the abolition of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, limiting the power of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies, limiting the reach of gender equity laws (Title IX) and voting rights laws, and expanded powers of war-time presidents. Members include; Surpreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito (Yale Law School) , and Clarence Thomas who is also a Yale Law School Graduiate. Bonesman Frederick Smith was Bush's top choice for Secretary of Defense until he had to withdraw for health reasons. The Secretary of Defense’s representative to Europe is EVAN G. GALBRAITH. Galbraith is a graduate of Yale University. Galbraith served on active duty in the Navy from 1953-1957 attached to the Central Intelligence Agency.
Covert Operations exposed! - including what some call "The New World Order" that every anti-mason focuses on. On the list are Members of Skull and Bones & Nazis in Union Banking Corp. Prescott Sheldon Bush (1917) Partner Brown Bros, Harriman, Father of Ex-President George Bush. Established in 1924 as a unit of W.A. Harriman and Co. (A joint Walker, Thyssen, Harriman operation). The founding partners were George Herbert Walker, Co-founder & sponsor (Grandfather of George Herbert Walker Bush, Ex-President, on the Father's side).
Depending on whom you hear it from, the Masons are planning the takeover
themselves, or are working in concert with European bankers, or are leading (or perhaps being led by)
the Illuminati (whoever they are).
The notion of a world-wide Masonic conspiracy would be laughable, if it weren't being repeated with such earnest gullibility by conspiracists like Pat Robertson's "The Eye in the Pyramid". Sadly, Masons are sometimes counted among the gullible who repeat the tall tale of the eye in the pyramid, often with a touch of pride. They may be guilty of nothing worse than innocently puffing the importance of their fraternity (as well as themselves), but they're guilty nonetheless. The time has come to state the truth plainly and simply!
More than a century ago, Skull and Bones was a secret society in Germany , where it was also known, not always in jest, as the "Brotherhood of Death." According to several sources, President George Bush to this day frequently consulted with several of his fellow Yale Bonesmen, and has, on occasion, called upon Skull & Bones members to carry out secret diplomatic missions for the White House.
Skull and Bones was founded by William H. Russell in 1832, more than a decade before Texas joined the union. At the time, men's fraternal organizations were so popular that politicians like former President John Quincy Adams were denouncing their secret oaths as cancers on the body of the republic. When Phi Beta Kappa responded to the anti-masonry in the air by abolishing its oath of secrecy, Russell (who later become Yale's valedictorian) founded "The Scull and Bones" as an alternative. Skull and Bones has maintained its selective membership and Masonic- inspired rituals since its founding in 1832.
As a warning: Some of these pages post lies once again about the Freemasons. While William Russell may have been a Mason at one time, his atheist views would have excluded him from membership if it were known. The evidence that he 'borrowed'; some Masonic ritual similarities does not provide any evidence that Skull and Bones is Masonic. We should also point out that there are what we call 'clandestine' lodges that are not recognized by the Grand Lodge of England and may have 'similiar' but not the same rituals or requirements for membership.
Fact: To infiltrate the Masonic lodges in Europe, Weishaupt had enlisted the aid of John
Robison who was a long time, high degree Mason in the Scottish Rite, a professor of
Natural Philosophy at Edinburgh University in Scotland, a British historian, and
Secretary-General to the Royal Society of Edinburgh. When he went to Germany,
he was given Weishaupt's revised conspiracy plans to study, in order to expand the
Illuminati's influence in the British Isles. However, Robison didn't agree with their
principles, and after warning American Masons in 1789, published a book to expose
the organization in 1798 called Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All Religions and
Governments of Europe, Carried On In the Secret Meetings of Freemasons,
Illuminati, and Reading Societies which presented the Protestant view. He wrote:
"I have observed these doctrines gradually diffusing and mixing with all the different systems of Freemasonry till, at last, an association has been formed for the express purpose of rooting out all the religious establishments, and overturning all the existing governments of Europe." see Final Warning
Abbé Augustin Barruel (French patriot, Jesuit, and 3rd degree Mason) published his Memoires pour servir a l´Histoire du Jacobinisme or Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism (which presented the Roman Catholic view). Both books sought to warn America about the Illuminati conspiracy, but the warnings were not taken seriously. The January, 1798 edition of the Monthly Magazine contained a letter by Augustus Bottiger, Provost of the College of Weimar, who accused Robison of making inaccurate statements and said that since 1790 "every concern of the Illuminati has ceased." But apparently it has not!
Although a few Freemasons were known to be members there is no evidence that it was supported by Freemasonry as an institution. Indeed, membership in the Illuminati, unlike that in Freemasonry, did not require belief in a Supreme Being. As a result, atheists having only the former organization open to them, congregated disproportionately in it; this over-representation, taken along with the Illuminati's largely humanist and anti-clerical bent, likely accounts for many of the claims of atheism leveled at the alleged world conspiracy of which the Illuminati supposedly remain a part. see Skull and Bones Traditionally, Skull and Bones was male-only, and restricted to wealthy whites. Women are now allowed to join, the conditions under which they are invited remaining obscure.
The Bavarian Illuminati have cast a long shadow in popular history thanks to the writings of their opponents; the allegations of conspiracy that have coloured the image of the Freemasons have practically opaqued that of the Illuminati. In 1797, Abbé Augustin Barruél published Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism outlining a vivid conspiracy theory involving the Knights Templar, the Rosicrucians, the Jacobins and the Illuminati, during the course of which Barruél blamed all of what he regarded as the disasters of his times such as the French Revolution on the said groups.
More recently, Antony C. Sutton suggested that the secret society Skull and Bones was founded as the American branch of the Illuminati. Others think Scroll and Key also had Illuminati origins. Writer Robert Gillette claimed that the Illuminati ultimately intend to establish a world government through assassination, bribery, blackmail, the control of banks and other financial powers, the infiltration of governments, mind control, and by causing wars and revolution to move their own people into higher positions in the political hierarchy.
These two articles note the Bush's involvement. The New World Order was founded by A German named Adam Weishaupt. Weishaupt wrote: the ends justified the means. Though the Order was not egalitarian or democratic, its mission was to establish a New World Order, which meant the abolition of all monarchical governments and religions. He began working towards incorporating his system of Illuminism into that of Masonry, with the aim of creating a New World Order. The actual character of the society was modeled on one of its traditionalist enemies, the Jesuits, and was an elaborate network of spies and counter-spies much like the CIA of today.
The Jesuit Code; "You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace. They of cource 'damned' the Masons because they believed in freedom of religious choice. If you read the oath you will see the cource they took against the Knights Templar; Burning, riping hanging, bum, waste, boil, flay, strangle, and bury alive these infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women, and crush their infants' heads against the walls in order to annihilate their execrable race.
"I do further declare that I will help assist, and advise all or any of His Holiness's agents, in any place where I should be, in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Ireland, or America, or in any other kingdom or territory I shall come to and do my utmost to extirpate the heretical Protestant or Masonic doctrines and to destroy all their pretended powers, legal or otherwise."
The Jesuits were founded just before the Counter-Reformation (or at least before the date those historians with a classical view of the counter reformation hold to be the beginning of the Counter-Reformation), a movement whose purpose was to reform the Catholic Church from within and to counter the Protestant Reformers, whose teachings were spreading throughout Catholic Europe.
Further down on the page you will read;" That from the very commencement of Christianity there has been transmitted through the centuries a body of doctrine incompatible with Christianity in the various official Churches. That the bodies teaching these doctrines profess to do so on the authority of St. John, to whom, as they claimed, the true secrets had been committed by the Founder of Christianity, that during the Middle Ages, the main support of the Gnostic bodies and the main repository of this knowledge (Johannism) was the Society of the Templars.' And he further said, 'The record of the Templars in Palestine is one long tale of intrigue and treachery on the part of the Order'."...refering to the "The Gnostics who were born of the Cabalists."
But the Templars were not Cabalists. Their reference to the "idol Baphomet." is just one more christian claim that has been proven untrue. The name Baphomet then became associated with a "Sabbatic Goat" (1855) image drawn by "Eliphas Lévi, who claimed he was a French occult author and magician. Lévi was the son of a shoemaker in Paris; he attended a seminary and began to study to enter the Roman Catholic priesthood.
There was No such idol and the word 'Baphomet' means wisdom. The image led to the Taxil hoax (1891) and used further by Athiest's Aleister Crowley and Christain fundamentalist Jack Click to promote anit-masonic books. Crowley claimed to be the reincarnation of Eliphas Lévi, offering as evidence the fact that he was born shortly after Lévi died.Click's Hoax exposed: Jack's getting the recognition he deserves and in a national magazine, no less. The highly respected U. S. News & World Report in their article on Greatest Hoaxes gives #3 billing to the Taxil Hoax. You know: the one Jack Chick uses! They even mention Jack's comic which we've debunked..
The Atbash Cipher interpreted 'baphomet' as the Greek word "Sophia", or wisdom. This theory is an important part of the plot of The Da Vinci Code. The Rev. Alphonsus Joseph-Mary Augustus Montague Summers (1880-1948), compiler of The History of Witchcraft and Demonology (1926) and The Geography of Witchcraft (1927) was able to form Baphomet from the Greek words 'baphe and 'Metis'. The two words together would mean "Baptism of Wisdom".
We see that with every writer we have a different version of what they thought was the truth. Keeping in mind that the Christians were out to destroy the Gnostics and every other non-Catholic religion and person, they used any means necessary to discredit the teachings or the group or they simply killed millions in the name of Jesus. Borrowing doctrines and beliefs of this group and that, led to the different religions and sects we still have today. This doesn't mean they are connected.
The Gnostic sect did in fact include the true followers of Jesus. They may have been Jews but they did not follow Jewish law or rule. Then we have "Chaldeans" who acted powerfully upon orthodox Judaism and determined the growth of a sect in its midst which was to transform Israel. . . . This sect was that of the Pharisees. . . . What they borrowed (from the Chaldeans)" The Chaldeans were not Gnostics and we remember that the Pharisees challanged Jesus' teachings.
Pre-Weishaupt origins are given to the Alumbrados of Spain and Illuminés of France. This claim holds in name and mystical concerns, but no solid historical lineage is known. Their practice of mysticism and attempt at communion with God through meditation or sexual practices, along with claims of enlightenment while living, denote a seeming connection with later Illuminati groups. However claims of later connections to other organizations' familiarity with these early movements are unsubstantiated. see The Illuminati
Weishaupt wrote; “An association has been formed for the express purposes of rooting out all the religious establishments and overturning all existing governments. . .the leaders would rule the World with uncontrollable power, while all the rest would be employed as tools of the ambition of their unknown superiors”. “Proofs of a Conspiracy” was sent to George Washington who replied that he was aware that the Illuminati were in America and that they had “diabolical tenets”. His motives are republican confederalizing of city-states in Estarcion (a pseudo-Europe) and the accumulation of capital unencumbered by government or church.
A century after his death, occultist interest in Weishaupt and the Bavarian Illuminati picked up through the writings of Aleister Crowley.
Each isolated cell of initiates reported to a superior, whom they did not know, a party structure that was effectively adopted by some later groups, including more recently by the early Ba'ath party in Syria and Iraq.
The goal of Skull and Bones is American dictatorship much like the Nazis. In the world of Skull & Bones, one of the greatest virtues is the ability to steer the nation into war and to successfully prosecute the war. Rosenbaum claims that the society's Germanic origins are inherently wicked and pre-Nazi. American military power is aimed at securing undisputed control over the vast reservoir of oil-not at necessarily fostering any permanent alignment of local states or combinations of regional interests. see Secret Societies - Skull 101. This was written in 2001 after the Gulf War.
"One hub of the Order's postwar economic power, the major multinational oil corporations, have clearly benefited greatly from President Bush's (Sr) "charming little colonial war" in the Persian Gulf. The leading oil companies which are linked to the Order are: Standard Oil Trust Corporation, Shell Oil of America, Creole Petroleum Corporation and Pennzoil Corporation. The founder and present chairman of the board of Pennzoil started out in the oil business in partnership with George Bush in Zapata Oil. It is interesting to note in the context of the Bonesmen's deep involvement in the world petroleum business that George Bush, during his early days as a Texas oilman, had worked closely with the Kuwaitis."see Oil Empire - Skull and Bones
Benjamin Franklin was also accused of being a member of the Illuminati, but there is no concrete proof of this. Jefferson seemed to be the main focus of everyone's ire. He was accused by the Federalists of being a Jacobin and an atheist. There is some evidence to indicate that he did use the Democratic Societies and Jacobin Clubs in his 1796 battle with John Adams for the Presidency. The Rev. Jedediah Morse identified Jefferson as "an Illuminatus." But this is politics. Any lie to get elected will do!
Around 1807, John Quincy Adams (said to have organized the New England Masonic lodges) who later became President in 1825, wrote three letters to Colonel William C. Stone, a top Mason, telling him that Thomas Jefferson, our 3rd President and founder of the Democratic Party, was using the Masonic lodges for subversive Illuminati purposes. These letters were allegedly kept at the Rittenburg Square Library in Philadelphia but have mysteriously vanished. Adams also wrote to Washington saying that Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton were misusing Masonic lodges for Illuminati purposes and the worship of Lucifer (which is recorded in the Adams Chronicles).
There is no evidence this is true and alot of Masons don't believe in a being called Lucifer. In fact here's a website on Jefferson, which explains he was a Unitarian. He believed in a surpreme deity. Jefferson also believed in an afterlife. Jefferson called himself a Deist, but was also a Unitarian. In America and England of that time the two were much the same, a branch within liberal Protestantism. Unitarians rejected the Trinity, Original Sin, etc. and other Gnostic beliefs, but Jefferson was not an athiest.
Quote: This quotation from a German Freemasonic ritual remains a source of
controversy surrounding the origins of Skull & Bones. It is one of the bits
of "evidence" cited by some of the Order's most ardent critics that the group
is "Nazi like" and singularly "Germanic". In fact, the rituals of the Order
are very much like the rituals employed by Scottish and English freemasonic
But not the same as!
We suggest that some of you who read or hear that Masonry is connected with Skull and Bones and believe it, need to do some real research before putting your very large stinky foot in your mouth!.

News: October 12, 2007; Knights cleared of hearsy charges by Pope Clement!! The document, known as the Chinon parchment, reveals that the Templars had an initiation ceremony which involved "spitting on the cross", "denying Jesus" and kissing the lower back, navel and mouth of the man proposing them.
The Templars explained to Pope Clement that the initiation mimicked the humiliation that knights could suffer if they fell into the hands of the Saracens, while the kissing ceremony was a sign of their total obedience.
The Pope concluded that the entrance ritual was not truly blasphemous, as alleged by King Philip when he had the knights arrested. However, he was forced to dissolve the Order to keep peace with France and prevent a schism in the church.
"This is proof that the Templars were not heretics," said Prof Frale. "The Pope was obliged to ask pardon from the knights. More about the Knights..Henry Sinclair discovered America in 1398. Hiram Intro 5
"For 700 years we have believed that the Templars died as cursed men, and this absolves them." story.. Vatican secret papers
The Templars were burned, tortured and whipped until bleeding. Some had their
abdomen opened allowing the intestines to hang out, then held over burning hot coals.

Knights Templar had vast holdings, much of which were in France.
When the trials were over Guess Who Got most of the Templars money?? The story is on
the Knights Templar page.
Another falsehood and misinterpretation is the Skull and Crossbones symbol. Amateur historian John J. Robinson points to a curious allusion in the initiation rite of the third degree, that of the Master Mason. Here the candidate is told that the initiation "will make you brother to pirates and corsairs." Is this a recollection of the vanished Templar ships that (we may speculate) turned to piracy to avenge themselves on the perfidious European powers? The connection becomes more plausible if you remember that one of the symbols associated with the Master Mason's degree is the skull and crossbones on a black background -- the Jolly Roger familiar to every schoolboy. If you notice this looks nothing like the "Skull and Bones" symbol above.
Another explanation comes from..
The Narmer Plate and Osiris, the Lord of Precession
by Audrey Fletcher
The omission of Orion's head and legs in the constellation of Orion is immediately noticeable. It would seem that Orion has had his legs and his head chopped off! A similar practice was observed by the Knights Templar five and a half thousand years later when they were buried. By adopting this practice the deceased Knights Templar became as one with Orion and, by implication, Osiris. The "skull and crossbones" … Orion's missing head and legs … were also adopted by the Knights Templar as their emblem, their symbol of recognition. Isis is the consort of Osiris, and after his murder by Set, she reconstitutes his body, (cut into 15 pieces) and thus achieves for him eternal life.
This does not mean the Templars worshiped Osiris, it means there is more to the legend of Osiris that is not understood by todays bible thumpers. It means the soul is eternal. It does not die!
The fabricated quote that lead outsiders to believe Masons worship Satan:
In the 861 page book Morals and Dogma, Albert Pike makes a total of four references to Lucifer [pp. 73, 102, 321, 324]. In each he uses the word lucifer in the popular usage as a synonym for Satan; on page 321 he points out the paradox of the Latin root meaning of the word as the bringer of light. Although we may disagree with his personal beliefs, he is clearly not exalting Satan. In context he also makes it very clear that his book is a treatise on comparative religion and is not a book of masonic instruction.
Using this comparison, a man who was rejected as a member wrote this:
"That which we must say to the world is that we worship a god, but it is the god that one adores without superstition. To you, Sovereign Grand Instructors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees: 'the Masonic Religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the LUCIFERIAN Doctrine. If Lucifer were not god, would Adonay (Jesus)... calumniate (spread false and harmful statements about) him?...Yes Lucifer is God..."
(Albert Pike, A.C. De La Rive, La Femme et l'Enfant dans la Franc-Maqonnene Universelle, page 588.)
This is the Taxil hoax.
The person who wrote this was Gabriel Jorgand-Pages. The hoax was perpetrated in the late 1800's. His intent was to publicly slander the Freemasons (who had rejected him for membership in 1881), and simultaneously embarrass the Roman Catholic Church. Unfortunately the hoax is very obvious to the literiate but it is still used repeatedly by illiterate Christians and religious authorities today to discredit Freemasonry. This was all a hoax to sell a book - created by Taxil in 1891. After this encyclical, Taxil underwent a public, feigned conversion to Roman Catholicism, and announced his intention of repairing the damage he had done to the true faith, but he continued to write books with fabricated stories. Another Taxil hoax was created called The Palladism, a masonic rite that included women. The Catholics, believing the hoax, published a book using the Taxil book to further their own cause to discredit masons. He invented documents and staged photographs and he even invented a female demon writing as Diana Vaughan.
When an international Anti-Masonic congress met in Trent, Austria on September 26, 1896, they insisted that Miss Vaughn appear with proof of her claims, at which point Taxil's collaborator, Charles Hacks, was forced to admit that she did not exist. The Catholics demanded the same appearance with the same result. Pope Leo XIII had issued the Humanun Genus in 1884 that proclaimed Freemasons were 'rising up against God himself' and planning the destruction of the Holy Church. When the hoax was exposed the church was enormously embarrassed. In spite of the admission of the hoax in front of the National Geographical Society in 1897, Taxil managed to collect money from what he called the 'idiocy of Catholics', before he was dragged off stage by armed police.
An in-depth investigation was conducted by Authur E. Waite of the Theosophical Society, who produced a devastating expose' of what he termed the Pala Dium in his book Devil Worship in France, or the Question of Lucifier. One by one, Leo Taxil's frauds, fabrications, forgeries, falsehoods and fictions were unmasked, to be classified thereafter as 'an extrodinary literary swindle'.
As a learned Master Mason has pointed out on a forum; Albert Pike did not write the above quote. This was a part of the Leo Taxil hoax. Jack Hickey, PM Major General - Henry Knox Lodge, Boston, MA.
Catholic opposition...Why?The skeptical Bishop Carroll had like-minded counterparts in nineteenth-century France. By 1896 Taxil’s anti-Masonic crusade was about to screech to an abrupt and dramatic halt.
The Palladium, for its part, was utter nonsense, as Freemasons and less naive Catholics had been saying for years. References to “real-life” Palladian Freemasons like Adriano Lemmi and Albert Pike were no more than elaborate libels a despicable but effective technique that Taxil had employed in his anticlerical years to cast Pope Leo XIII as a homicidal maniac and Pope Pius IX as a sex fiend. Pike, though steeped in anti-Catholicism and racial bigotry, had nothing to do with global conspiracies or satanic rituals.
With a sneer, Taxil cynically thanked the Catholic press and prelates gathered at the conference. He had wanted only to expose their ignorance, and they had played along famously. The twelve-year charade also repaid a debt long owed to the Freemasons. In 1881 the Temple of Friends of French Honor, embarrassed by Entered Apprentice Taxil’s reputation for plagiarism and lewd fiction, had drummed him out of the Grand Orient.
Following Taxil’s outrageous hoax, the Church did not condemn Freemasonry quite so loudly. Nonetheless Catholicism remains threatened by a perception that Freemasonry is a sort of counter-Church that strives for its overthrow. Because lodges and meetings display ostensibly religious elements—including temples, altars, prayers, a moral code, vestments, a hierarchy, and unique imtiatory and burial rites —Catholicism perceives Freemasonry as “a rival to the religion of the Gospel.”
Freemasonry’s modern perception of itself as a philosophic society that “works for material and moral improvement, and for the intellectual and social perfection of humanity” is no less challenging. The Church seems averse to the idea that Catholics might seek moral and spiritual improvement without her guidance. Catholicism, after all has had centuries of experience imparting ethical and spiritual knowledge through symbolic media, and resents the implication that symbols and teachings separate from its own are necessary to ethical development. Moreover the Church is indignant that such an undertaking would be attempted without reference to Christ’s redemption, from which, it teaches, the quest for spiritual and ethical perfection must derive.
Catholicism remains at odds with Freemasonry, at least at an official level. In 1983, the Code of Canon Law forbade Catholics from membership in secret societies in general, but did not address Freemasonry specifically. The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith soon clarified this in the following terms: “The church’s negative position on Masonic associations . . . remains unaltered since their principles have always been regarded as irreconcilable with the church’s doctrine,” and added, “Catholics enrolled in Masonic associations are involved in serious sin and may not approach holy communion.” In the spring of 1996 Fabian Bruskewitz, bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska, included Freemasonry in a list of organizations whose members are subject to excommunication in his diocese. Excommunication, the Church’s version of the death penalty whose punishment does not terminate with mortal life, continues to weigh against the souls of Catholic Freemasons.
Susan L. Davis and Walter L. Fleming, without documentation or proof, claimed Pike as a leader of the Ku Klux Klan; and thirdly, Pike's extensive writings are easily quoted out of context to demonstrate pagan or occult leanings. Pike was never a member of the Klan.
There is not a single Mason today that would agree with the message in the hoax. But because of Pikes book Morals and Dogma, they can't shake this grossly fabricated quote. The religious authorities and misled Christian fundamentalists can quote it but they leave out the admission of the hoax, which as you see is posted in the Wikipedia...
Pike studied the same religions that we did and we found that 'Lucifier' is a misnomer - there is no such deity. But then you question that too. You wounder why some of us don't believe in Satan. Where we ask, is this enity named in the Old Testament? And how did a talking snake get turned into a red devil with horns and a pitchfork? We will confront this issue head-on on here and on Forbidden 4... We think by the time you finish the forbidden series, you will see why the serpent and the hoax was invented in the first place.
Albert Pike was grossly misquoted because he studied all the major religions in depth
but his writings were misunderstood and we will illustrate that here. On our Intro page
we showed how in the 26th degree ceremony, all religions must be considered
to find the 'golden threads of truth'.
His mission was to show us that they all had the one thing we mentioned in common. That is the belief in a supreme being. With this study he found what we will try to relate here. In fact the oldest religions reveal something the newer ones do not acknowledge. The god in Genesis was once known by a plural name - more than one....US! see Genesis 1:26, 3:22, and 11:7.
Some Masons do not believe in a devil because (in our opinion) there isn't one. Where do you see the word 'Satan' in the Old Testament? Rather than hold to this belief in a devil, they chose to have no religion at all and not be a part of any 'organized' church. So if you know a Mason, and he does not attend church, this is the reason. It isn't because he doesn't believe in or worship God - It is because he doesn't acknowledge a 'devil' or a 'Satan' and refuses to have this belief forced upon him. The 'devil' is seen as nothing more than a 'scare' tactic and therefore is an unrelible suggestion.
Masons do not discuss this openly because it only adds further fuel to the fire
due to the already suspicious closed door meetings. But inside the meetings they
don't discuss this either because it is not permitted. Masons are not allowed to
discuss religion in the Lodge. A Mason must seek the 'forbidden' knowledge we present
here, on his own.
This is a tradition that has continued for more than 2000 years and we'll show you how it began. Operational Masonry applied to the old 'trade guilds' and it goes even further back in time than the builders guild of Solomon's Temple. A 'Mason' in the 'operative' sence is even mentioned in the Egyptian Book of the Dead which is believed to be over 10,000 years old. Nothing is secret in Masonry anymore!
What it all boils down to is - the Taxil hoax is the reason that for many years Mason's have been accused of devil worship... But the real truth is that somethings being hidden from the church going public. This is the deep dark secret that an organized faith that you have trusted since childhood is keeping from you. If you found definative proof that you've been lied to, how would you feel? If you attend a Mosque or a Synagogue or any other gathering where a god is worshipped, this in-depth investigation applies to you as well.
One of the experts on the Dead Sea Scrolls applies the Atbash Cipher
to interpret the Baphomet as the Greek word Sophia "Wisdom", The Kabbalistic connection.
.. Abufihamat Theory, on Stephen Dafoe's page..
This is Baal, the Evil doer, the Satan, who at the beginning of time fought with "THE LAW OF ONE" at Atlantis and Eden. It is also called 'the Baphomet'. Some of the liers have said this thing was a god and was worshiped by the Knights Templar. The truth is this; In 1307 when the POPE had the Templars arrested, the CHURCH made two of them confess, after hours and days of torture to worshiping this thing. As we documented above, None of this was true!
We really dislike this THING, ( above ) but We put it here to address more LIES..
This is a book cover, the book written by Jack T. Chick, who is a
Christian Fundamentalist. The book contains cartoon images
of a Mason being informed that he is involved in a cult that
worships this Evil Thing. This is what Good CHRISTIANS DO?
Just Like the torture above, apparently to make a few hundred
thousand bucks, at Mason's expense. Mr Click wrote this too...."Based on, what he called
the corrupted Alexandrian Gnostic manuscripts. He went on to say; the King James
Version is the only true "word of God". However, Baal worship (Sun god religion of ancient Babylon) is
reflected in the guise of old and new Christianity." This page is full of lies and misquoted myths!
The Satanic Roots Of The Roman Catholic Church
Here is another example from The Widow's Son, page 1
Where did this thing originate?, in the Vision of Ezekiel, Ezekiel 8:14, the people are worshiping Baal and mourning Tammuz. Judges 2:13, After Joshua dies the people were worshiping Baal and the Ashtoreths. Judges 17: is about Micah's Idols. Baal's Temple is destroyed in Kings 2:10,18-29 and also speeks of golden calves at Bethel and Dan. Baal was a God of Isreal for many years. Kings 2:17,16 the people worship Baal again. This thing seems to have been connected with the common people, not the Priests of the Temple [ the initiates ] or the Kings of Israel. It also seems to have been worshiped in Israel before Joshua arrives. Joshua was a 'brother' and he and the ancestors did their best to destroy this idol, the temples, and the worship of it, but again it prevailed because of ignorance.The Hamite line is the clue to the predynastic line of Egyptian Kings. A collection of Aeramic writings called The Targum tells us that Nimrod was the father of an Egyptian pharoah, but does not give his name. However a seperate Ethiopic text refers to another pharoah who was contempoary with Nimrod, phonetically calling him Yanuf. This pharoah is easily identifiable. His name is correctly written as Anedjib, and he was a king in the first dynasty of Egypt, reigning about 3000 B.C., at precisely the time of Nimrod. Anedjib is Ham. Yanuf is Joseph, son of Jacob. Nimrod may be Osiris, God of the Dead.
Not long after the reign of Anedjib ( about 2890 BC ) a new dynasty emerged in Egypt,
and with this family the heritage of Nimrod was cemented very firmly in place. We are left
in no doubt of this, because it was king Raneb (Jacob), the second pharoah of the second
dynasty, who first introduced the the veneration of the Goat of Mendes into
Egypt. This is especially relevant because in both the Grail and Dragon
traditions, the Goat of Mendes has always been directly associated with
Nimrod's grandfather Ham. Mendes was a city just north-west of Avaris.
Genesis of the Grail Kings, page 194
The Goat (Ram) is known to all of us through the ancient science of Astrology first developed by the Chaldeans, or as they are commonly known; Babylonians. The ram is an animal with horns, symbolizing strength and fecundity. A ram is ready to leap. Associated with Mars.- The Beginning of Spring The Goat of Mendes or Ram represents the constallation of Aries which was present between 2120 BC and 60 BC. The Ram first appeared in Egypt, alternating with a goose's head as the symbol of Aries; its origin is a mystery.
In the Tarot Deck, the card representing Aries is The Emperor, who rules over the Element of Fire and illustrates qualities of leadership, strength, energy and assertive power. This card is symbolic of a combination of dynamic physical energy and the concept of authority. The Emperor's numerological correspondent is four, symbolic of the builder and the organizer. Four is made up of straight lines and is a sacred number. This principle may be seen in the straight lines of the cross and the square. In a divine sense, it represents law and order, the material realms, reason and logic. It is interesting to note that Jesus Christ was not the only spiritual leader to die on a cross. Krishna of India, Thamus of Syria, Flesus of the Druids, Mithra of Persia and Quexalcotl of Mexico all also perished on crosses. The equal-armed cross, with its crossbeams crossing the umbilical center, traditionally represented man. It was only after the crucifixion of Christ that the crossbeam was raised to the heart center. more about the secrets of the.. TarotIn accordance with the Dragon Court tradition, Ham was the designated Archon of the First Age of Aries and in this regard his symbol was the inverted pentagram. This five pointed star has two uppermost points, which are the horns of the Goat of Mendes. The two downward-sloping side points represent the ears and the single base point is the chin and the beard, as identified by Chevalier David Wood in his outstanding studies of sacred geometry. Note; The drawing above is ill represenative of the actual figure and was transformed into a devil by christians who didn't know the true meaning and have traditionally rejected astrology as an 'occult' practice.
This Image and the connection of it with Grand Master and Doctor of Theology, Albert Pike was perpetrated by the HOAX of Leo Taxil. [ born Gaberiel Antoine Jogand-Pages ]. Mr. Pages wrote pornographic stories and works opposing Catholicism. He got into a Lodge briefly, after being turned down the first time, but was expelled for his anti-Catholic views. He wrote the HOAX in retaliation of the expulsion. Another version of the story is, he wrote the story for a contest in a newspaper which paid the winner a large amount of money. The rules said the story had to be an outrageous lie. He purposely joined the lodge to see what was going on, and made up the whole story as he made up the nonsence about the Catholics, so he would get expelled. He won the prize, but the story stuck.
Baphomet was the imaginary idol, or, rather, symbol, which the Knights Templars were accused of employing in their mystic rights. The forty-second of the charges preferred against them by Pope Clement is in these words: Item quod ipsi per singulas provincias habeant idola: videlicet capita quorum aliqua habebant tres facies, et alia unum: et aliqua creanium humanum habebant. Translated: Also, that in all of the provinces they have idols, namely, heads, of which some had three faces, some one, and some had a human skull.
Von Hammer, a bitter enemy of the Templars, in his book entitled The Mystery of Baphomet Revealed, revived this old accusation, and attached to the Baphomet an impious dignification. He derived the name from the Greek words baptism, and wisdom, and thence supposed that it represented the admission of the initiated into the secret mysteries of the Order. From this gratuitous assumption he deduces this theory, set forth even in the very title of his work, that the Templars were convicted, by their own monuments, of being guilty as Gnostics and Ophites, of apostasy, idolatry, and impurity. Of this statement he offers no other historical testimony than the Articles of Accusation, themselves void of proof , but through which the Templars were made the victims of the jealousy of the Pope and the avarice of Philip the Fair, (a misnomer, to be sure) King of France.
Others again have thought that they could find in Baphomet a corruption of Mahomet, and hence they have asserted that the Templars had been perverted from their religious faith by the Saracens, with whom they had so much intercourse, sometimes as foes and sometimes as friends. Nicolai, who wrote an Essay on the Accusations brought against the Templars, published at Berlin in 1782, supposes, but doubtingly, that the figure of the Baphomet, figura Baffometi, which was depicted on a bust representing the Creator, was nothing else but the Pythagorean pentagon, the symbol of health and prosperity, borrowed by the Templars from the Gnostics who in turn had obtained it from the School of Pythagoras.
King, in his learned work on the Gnostics, thinks that the Baphomet may have been a symbol of the Manicheans, with whose wide-spreading heresy in the Middle Ages he does not doubt that a large portion of the inquiring spirits of the Temple had been intoxicated.
Amid these conflicting views, all merely speculative, it will not be uncharitable or unreasonable to suggest that the Baphomet, or skull of the ancient Templars, was, like the relic of their modern Masonic representatives, simply an impressive symbol teaching the lesson of mortality, and that the latter has really been derived from the former. This was posted by Michael at a Masonic Message Board as a rebuttal to ascretians of Masonry using the Baphomet in ceremonies or rituals. There are many other answers and rebuttals on this page.
The Quote of Albert Pike is also on Stephen Defoe's page.. Taxil Admits the Document A HOAX.. This hoax and Lie is still used today by these so-called Christians, to defraud and slander Masons to a gullible public. But as we stated the Pope cleared the Templer of any wrong doing in the 'Chinon Parchment', link above....While Philip was still in office. It took 700 years to get an apology and the proof in print.
A brief note about Albert Pike is in order. Pike (1809-91) was a Confederate brigadier general during the American Civil War who was almost single-handedly responsible for the creation of the modern form of Scottish Rite Freemasonry. Wealthy, well read and possessing an extensive library, he served as Grand Commander of the order from 1859 until his death and wrote a number of books on history, philosophy and travel, the most famous being Morals and Dogma. Outside of the perhaps half a million members of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, most masons have never read Pike's work. Pike is often criticized by fellow masons who charge that his mystical and often controversial views have provided ample ammunition for enemies of Freemasonry.
"Much of the writings of Albert Pike are extracted from the books of the French magician,
Eliphas Levi, one of the greatest transcendentalists of modern times. Levi was an occultist, a
metaphysician, a Platonic philosopher, who by the rituals of magic invoked even the spirit of
Apollonius of Tyana, and yet Pike has inserted in his Morals and Dogma whole pages, and even
chapters, practically verbatim. To Pike the following remarkable tribute was paid by Stirling Kerr, Jr.,
33? Deputy for the Inspector-General for the District of Columbia, upon crowning with laurel the bust
of Pike in the House of the Temple: 'Pike was an oracle greater than that of Delphi. He was Truth's
minister and priest. His victories were those of peace. Long may his memory live in the hearts of
the Brethren.' Affectionately termed 'Albertus Magnus' by his admirers, Pike wrote of Hermeticism
and alchemy and hinted at the Mysteries of the Temple. Through his zeal and unflagging energy,
American Freemasonry was raised from comparative obscurity to become the most powerful
organization in the land."
- Manly P. Hall, Rosicrucian and Masonic Origins pp 413-414
"...The Rite is organised as a pyramid, the majestic tomb of Hiram, at the top of which
a 'mysterious stair' of seven steps is placed, similar to Eraclitus path Çwhich rises and descends
and it is one and the sameÈ. The pyramid image immediately leads to the Egyptian sepulchres
and to the journey of detachment from the body and rising, which constitute the target of the
initiation. At the same time, it wonderfully synthesises the sedimentation of traditions that the
Rite has made..."
- Maurizio Nicosia, The Sepulchre of Osiris
"'Let there be light!' - the Almighty spoke,
Refulgent streams from chaos broke,
To illume the rising earth!
Well pleas'd the Great Jehovah flood -
The Power Supreme pronounc'd it good,
And gave the planets birth!
In choral numbers Masons join,
To bless and praise this light divine."
- from "Anthem III" in William Preston's Illustrations of Masonry (1804)
This is a recent post taken from the Masonic newsletter we get by e-mail;
John Ankerberg use to have a weekly television show on late Sunday evenings. I believe he is on the air again. He has spent a lot of time attacking our Fraternity and many other great traditions of our founding fathers. He uses the show to offer video tapes of "former Masons who had become Christians", which they should have before they joined a lodge, to the viewers to help expose the so-called dark secrets of Masonry. The video tapes actually showed the three Blue Lodge degrees, handshakes, passes, etc. Ankerberg is another person who seems to attack our fraternity for his personal profit. I thank the brother for the fair warning as I like to read what I can about Masonry, but I know just enough about John Ankerberg that I no longer watch any of his televised shows nor will I every purchase anything I can tell he has a hand in. Born in Blood will surely be a much better book to read for those looking for truth about our brotherhood. Thanks again for passing the work about something we should avoid. by.Geary McDowell - not a mason
We wish to point out that we are exposing prejudice and hate. These pages are not a site that promotes, nor does it contain subject matter for search words such as; baal, ( except the explaination of the origin ) pagen god, HATE, scorpion king, Egypt Scorpion, Satan,( explaination again ) negative comments about Muslims, Islam, or lies made popular by certain religious groups. We do not promote nor discredit any religion in it's pure ancient form. We respect the religious choice of our brothers and sisters. We do however, firmly believe that certain religious groups have destroyed true Christianity and the purpose for which it was created. To get a good taste of this destruction, and the lies they have conceived through their hatered for 'other' human beings, look to the URL Cutting Edge Ministeries , or any good Christian fundamentalist site for these references. What we discovered is that the Israelites really did worship BAAL, or SET(H), but for many years the Christians have ignored this.
Baal worship was a powerful attraction to the people of Israel and eventually led to their destruction and exile. The Northern Kingdom of Israel wanted idolatry and the Lord gave them over to Assyria, the Southern Kingdom of Judah wanted idolatry and the Lord gave them over to Babylon, both lands filled to the brink with idolatry.
And take this quote for another instance;
Cheers and Jeers for Miesel
"I read with interest Sandra Miesel’s article “Swinging at Windmills” in the December 2002 Crisis and can certainly agree with her that targeting the Jewish people as enemies of Christ is improper. They are, after all, the elders of our faith. I also agree that “conspiracy theorists” as a general category tend to confuse reality and fiction. Theorists must be evaluated individually".
"What I disagree with is her tendency to lump all of Freemasonry into a general category and dismiss it as relatively harmless. First, to do so consigns eight popes who have condemned it to the category of “fool” and to place Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz, who excommunicated Catholics who are members of the lodge, into the “fool” category as well. This, at the very least, seems naive".
"Secondly, she gives the impression that she believes all Masonry can be explained by the Blue Lodge. Perhaps she needs to study the subject a bit more in depth."
"Political correctness should not prevent looking at Egyptian Rite Freemasonry, acknowledging its reliance on the techniques of mystical Judaism as taught by former Catholic Eliphas Levi, and embraced by the Russian mystic H.P. Blavatsky in her “Theosophy.” It was a follower of Blavatsky who created the organization known as “Co-Masonry.” Blavatsky’s philosophy is at the heart of the universalism promoted by world leaders including Mikhail Gorbachev, as Lee Penn has documented repeatedly in heavily footnoted articles about the United Religions Initiative that have appeared in numerous Christian publications. The organization is not Christian-friendly". Carrie Tomko Munroe Falls, Ohio( End quote)
This nitwitt also claims the Web Master agrees with Jack Chick ( quotes heavily, three paragraphs ) who is a known Hater of Masons and refuses to state his/her identity....What Ever!
We reported defamatory infringment to the server and he/she took it off the site!
The point is there will be ONE WORLD RELIGION, although we might not like what it turns out to be particulally if it ends up being the perverted JIHAD of Islam. This also shows us this person reads and sees only what he/she wants to and not the whole picture because the church forbids it. So no matter how you slice it, it ( Masonry ) can't be friendly to liers or those who tend to bend the truth to suit themselves or the objectives of the church. And as we know, Egyptian Rite Freemasonry is not supported by the Grand Lodge of England. Please respond by e-mail if this assumption is incorrect.Another slamp in the face to a group of dedicated men who are willing to do what ever it takes to help a crippled or burned child, Shriners.. ..Makes you wounder what kind of people we're dealing with.
