This was taken from the encylopedia of Occultism and Parapsychology
An occult movement of the seventeenth century. Freemasonry emerged as the British form of revived gnosticism analogous to the Rosicrucian movement in Germany. While having its roots in the architectural and construction guilds of the Middle Ages, modern masonry is rooted in the post-Reformation revival of Gnostic thought and occult practice. The mythical history of masonry served to protect it in the religiously intolerant atmosphere operative in Great Britain at the time of its founding.
History and Mythic Origin
Although it would not be exactly correct to say that the history of Freemasonry was lost in the mists of antiquity, it is possible to say that although to a certain degree traceable, its records are of a scanty nature, and so crossed by the trails of other mystical brotherhoods that disentanglement is an extremely difficult process.
The ancient legend of its foundation at the time of the building of the Temple at Jerusalem is manifestly mythical. If one might hazard an opinion, it would seem that at a very early epoch in the history of civilization, a caste arose of builders in stone, who jealously guarded the secret of their craft. Where such a caste of operative masons might have arisen is altogether a separate question, but it must obviously have been in a country where working in stone was one of the principal arts. It is also almost certain that this early brotherhood must have been hierophantic with a leadership adept in the ancient mysteries.Its principal work to begin with would undoubtedly consist in the raising of temples and similar structures, and as such it would come into very close contact with the priesthood, if indeed it was not wholly directed by it.
The sad thing is there are government officials that are freemasons I have seen the lists of names through out the countries for freemasons well the main one anyway and I am sure of this that they shouldn’t when you’re a cult make namelist as they get about the place, and as government officials they have to sign a declaration that they are not members of a cult, I know I had to sign something like this at Sydney Ferries
I heard that part of the initiation has included things like pal and puppy licking or whipped cream and a cat, maybe this is why every time I write to a politician well some of them the foot carriage seems to prompt my dad in calling me. Not that he is a mason well I don't think so has always seemed like a good Christian man not some occult devil worshipping mason.
But groups like this seem to use the dog bugger phone to move and herd the flock of civilian sheep around which involves paedophilia and other weird frats of humanology.
Hey aren't they that cult that was busted by Network Ten Called the Circle Cult, I once saw a picture of a fetus that was half dog and half human, must be from their initiation rites
That's pretty funny, I was just searching through emule and found the members list for several countries main masonic positions.. Have a look they are in excel format. Not something you would want streaming across a million computers around the world, spinning on hard drives and randomly surfacing.

I am curious, you state that you recently were initiated as an Entered Apprentice and then mention that you participated in your first meeting. You made no mention of being raised to Master Mason which I find curious as only Master Masons can vote and as such you would not, by the rules of the lodge, be permitted to be in the lodge room at that time. Perhaps you can clarify this error or omission for me?

I'm sure someone will take this wrong and run with it, but I'm going to write it anyway...

So here is the question;
Why is it that the initial response to someone who says something objectionable about the philosophy or nature of his lodge, or otherwise says something or acts non masonic while claiming to be a Mason, has their Masonic "pedigree" questioned, but when someone comes to the boards and claims to be a Christian, but then goes on to misquote the Bible or act in a unchristian way people just accept and assume that the person is indeed Christian without a second thought?
