I think to understand the nature of Ottoman-Freemasonry is much more important than the red color of one's hat, yet the main point here is that the
Shriners are not to be considered as official Western Freemasonry and thus also have very different originations. Certainly the author in the link
you provided displays an egoistic nature by claiming these "typically" foolish Christians, who are always misunderstanding the simplest of matters.
Yet, when we take a closer look at history, perhaps using the color red to symbolise blood, is not so far off from reality.
Now, the link you provided assumes we are not able to look much further than a childish fantasy and most people do not like being manipulated in the
particular way in which this author appears engaged in silly explanations of blood dripping and drying in the desert – this is rather patronizing to
I will add something further to this:
The roots of Shriner Freemasonry started in Iraq. Aristotelism was brought to Iraq in the area of "Jundi Sabur" and integrated into the Arabian
culture. Caliph Haroun al Rashid and his associates, in the 700's were brilliant but they failed to appreciate the Christ-Impulse and were infected
with the Ahriman influence from Jundi Sabur. Prophet Mohammed opposed and thus prevented this perverted knowledge from getting out of hand in the
year "666". Still the remaining knowledge flowed through to the “Assassins” and even inspired the Knight Templars. (The Templars were of a
much higher calibre; a gentler, cleaner spiritual understanding).
In the 1200's, the Aristotelians or "realists" incarnated into the Dominican Order and opposed the Franciscans. This quasi-Aristotelism or the
perverted wisdom was also carried into Europe via Roger Bacon and other Franciscans. By the 1400's the consciousness of man changed around the time
of Confucius. Other philosophers such as Avicenna and Averroës, who upheld a decadent and retrogressive quasi-Aristotelism, which denied
human-spiritual individuality surviving death, also carried the Arabian impulse forward. Now where else did this knowledge spread? How about Turkey
and Spain and much of the Middle East and Europe? Yet, this type of anti-Christian like knowledge opposed the ideas of the Platonists such as Bruno
Latini, Dante, Thomas Aquinas and later Karl Julius Schröer, teacher of Rudolf Steiner at the Technische Hochschule in Vienna.
I made mention to Al Rashid? He himself incarnated as Francis Bacon, the founder of our modern scientism. Now, remember the Ottoman-Turks were
united with Germany. Shriner Freemasonry was IN FACT the same perverted quasi-Aristotelism that came from Jundi Sabur that eventually found its way
into the west as well. Turkey and the Germanic empire were allied up to and including Adolph Hitler, and they were all connected to this most
splendid type of Freemasonry (if we can even call it true Freemasonry) who according to the author of the link you provided, were merely "having some
I only mentioned a small portion of it, as it involves the Mahatmas of Shamballa, Botavista's and much more understanding.
