Hmm. Yes. Well.
We simply can't work on the basis that all anti-masonic claims are consistant with each other. Here's another one:
1. You will be murdered if you leave freemasonry
2. I am an ex-mason and I have a story to tell (book to sell)
Almost all the anti-masonic claims have no substance whatsoever, although there are one or two which are legitimate concerns even if they end up being
opinion-based rather than factually provable/disprovable, e.g.
1. I am a woman and I think freemasonry is discriminatory
2. I am a fundamental Christian and I think freemasonry is incompatable with my faith.
The best way to approach these discussions IMO is to take one claim at a time, but unfortunately thats easier said than done
