The Illuminati was founded in Bavaria in 1792, by a Freemason grandmaster named Adam Weishaupt. Adam received backing from the Rothschild family to build the Illuminati. He even converted to the Rothschild religion. He had been a Jesuit, but became a Jew. His followers were drawn, primarily, from Bavarian Freemason masters, who then attempted to use the Bavarian Freemasons to overthrow the Bavarian government. They were found out, and fled to Paris, where they infiltrated the French Freemasons. The revolutionary cry of "Liberty, Fraternity, Equality" was taken right out of the principles of Freemasonry. The same principles influenced the American Revolution and the Constitutional Conventions, as most of the instigators in those events were Freemasons. "Liberty, Fraternaty, Equality", however, was not what the French got. Something went seriously wrong.
The Freemasons are an ancient society that long operated under cover of a mason's guild. Throughout the Dark Ages, they preserved the ideals of freedom and equality for all men, while such things were persecuted relentlessly by the Catholic Church. The Black Plague left Europe with little need for masons, so they had to expand their range of applicants, to include other professions, including doctors and lawyers. With the decline of the papacy, the freemansons got a whole new playing field, with new opportunities. Somebody grabbed the freemasons by their leadership. That somebody was Adam Wieshaupt, an agent of the Rothschilds.

You may well be part of a global conspiracy to discredit freemasonry, you and your buddies Akilles and MrExplodingToilet.
I'd like to see you prove that you're not
That's exactly how their organization works. ASE et al. have been manipulated by the upper-echelon of anti-masons (such as David Icke and the Pope) to believe all this bunk about masonry so that these easily manipulated weak-minded sheep will carry out their agenda.
ASE, Akilles and Necros are basically doing all the dirty work for their higher-ups in the secret "back door" of anti-masonry. As All-Seeing-Eye once said, "Someone needs to load the cannons, right?"

You guys are hilarious, I doubt some of my views, but you are so sure that free masonry is good. Couldn’t you be wrong just as well as us anti masons?
