But what I stated on Trump remains solid none the less, with the exception of the Freemason handshake. (which was clarified to be pen holding.)
Declaration on Masonic Associations
"the Church’s negative judgment in regard to Masonic association[s] remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden. The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion."

About the whole handshake business.
I cannot speak for the other evil Masons on this site but I am pretty sure they do the same thing I do. I never slap a Masonic grip on anyone to find out if they are a Mason, most of the time they have a ring. And if I am curious, I just ask. There are questions we can use to tell right away of someone is full of it or not. And even if they turn out to be a Mason I still do not give them a Masonic handshake, it just seems silly at that point. The only time I use them are in Lodge during the degrees.
Outside of these topics I surprisingly get along with Augustus through pm's. In a sense you can see us as Rivals playing chess in a friendly manner. Like Gentlemen. (Though I admit sometimes I get pissy.)
At the end of the day we both (hopefully) realize that he is not my enemy nor am I his.
"they were disbanded in 1773 due to public outcry. The jesuits came back under the name "illuminati." and continued to work for the vatican. The Illuminati was disbanded and shortly after the Jesuits were re-established in the early 1800's."
"From what I researched, Adam Wieshaupt managed to influence a large part of Freemasonry before the illuminati order was disbanded."

• When the Jesuits became outlawed, Adam Weishaupt thereafter became a Professor of Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt.
Jesuits= Los Alumbrados -'The Illuminated Ones'
Adam Weishaupt who founded the illuminati was a student of the Jesuits at The University of Ingolstadt. Weishaupt began his education at the age of 7 at a Jesuit school, and continued his education with the Jesuits into his university years, whilst studying at Ingolstadt University in Bavaria (Ingolstadt was named after Ignatius Loyola who was the founder of the Jesuits). Weishaupt would have been groomed and watched by the Jesuits through his school years.
“Over the following years, Weishaupt’s secret order grew considerably in size and diversity, possibly numbering 600 members by 1782. They included important people in Bavarian public life, such as Baron Adolph von Knigge and the banker Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who provided funding.”

Cool gigantic post, but it has absolutely nothing to do with what I said in regards to Trumps lack of knowledge
