Is the Assassins creed real? I have found this Document but could this or is this true?

Assassins CreedAdditional Argument:

“The organization that would later be known as the Templar Order was likely founded by Cain, whose ‘mark’ was used as the Templars’ crest. They quickly became the archenemies of the Assassins, who, as opposed to the Templars, fought to allow the people to retain free will.[5]

The Templar Order, also known as the Order of the Knights Templar, were a monastic military order-turned-corporate giant, which was formed during the prehistoric era. The Templars sought to create a perfect world, although the means by which they aimed to do so – through force, control and the destruction of free will – directly contrasted the ideals of their sworn enemies, the Assassin Order.” Read more »

Question: Is Freemasonry a religion?

morals and dogmaAdditional Argument: “I read something in a book that made me wonder about this. The book is called “Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry” written by Albert Pike. Albert Pike is a confirmed Freemason, in fact there are currently lodges erected in honor of him, such as the Albert Pike Lodge #237 in Hopkins, Minnesota.

On page 213 of “Morals and Dogma” Albert Pike states, “Every Masonic Lodge is a Temple of religion; and its teachings are instructions in religion.”

Here is a link to the document showing thie above quotation: http://crossbearer-brian.tripod.com/id284.htm

Since Albert Pike was clearly an authoritative figure within Freemasonry and his book is still used today, is it true that Freemasonry is a religion? It clearly appears to me that this claim is true, however, I would like to hear from some Masons regarding Albert Pike’s statements.

What will the Masons say this time? Will they deny that Pike was a Mason? Will they claim the book doesn’t exist? Will they say that his quote is misconstrued or out of context? I have heard all of these responses before and would appreciate a clear answer.” Read more »

ACTUAL Freemason Information on YouTube

YouTubeIn an unusual twist, a video has been posted on YouTube that is based on ACTUAL information about Freemasonry and it’s history in California.

Who’d a thunk it?

Freemasonry is often portrayed as a secret society of shadowy characters who secretly run the world, are involved with the (long defunct) Illuminati, are protectors of the Holy Grail, practice dark magic and devil worshipin’, and other nonsense.  It’s good to see the veil pulled aside and some light shed on what the fraternity is about, and what it’s done in California – my home state.

This video is linked from YouTube.  FreemasonMovies (or “Mr. Mason”) has other flicks up on YT as well. Read more »

Catholic Church and Freemasonry in the News

8134656316_6b4cc589e1_bPontifical Acts – November 7, 2012 – Pope Benedict XVI appointed Brother Vanderlei Salvador Bagnato, Professor of Physics at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

Professor Bagnato, a Freemason, is a member of Estrela da Libertade Lodge #2877 of Sao Carlos, under the jurisdiction of the Grand Orient of Sao Paulo State, federated to the Grand Orient of Brazil.

Some in the Roman Catholic Church have long stated that no Catholic may hold membership in Freemasonry and the Church at the same time; that the Church and the fraternity are incompatible.

As a Catholic Freemason – who sought guidance from the Church before joining the fraternity – I tend to believe that the “some” don’t seem to understand the rules – the Canons – that Catholics are supposed to follow. Read more »

Thanksgiving Proclamation

In October of 1789 the United States had only emerged from the Revolutionary War by a scant few years. We had newly elected our first President, George Washington (raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason in the Lodge at Fredericksburg on August 4th, 1753), and the Congress was busy delivering the fresh-off-the-presses Bill of Rights that had been adopted as the first ten amendments to the new Constitution to the state capitols of the new United States. The Judiciary act of 1789 formed the entire federal judiciary, including the Supreme Court.
