The Order of the Eastern Star (OES) is a female companion organization to Freemasonry. Men who are Master Masons may also join. Their primary symbol in cemeteries is a five pointed star with a tip pointing down, representing the Star of Bethlehem. In the example at right the letters are FATAL, which stand for Fairest Among Ten-thousand, Altogether Lovely.
In the example below each symbol within the star is an emblem for the Biblical heroines Adah, Ruth, Esther, Martha and Electa, whose stories inspire character building lessons.
PENTAGRAM (FIVE-POINTED STAR pointing down): Used in occult rituals to direct forces or energies. Often represents satanism, the horned god or various expressions of contemporary occultism, especially when a goat-head is superimposed on the inverted pentagram.
What is very interesting about this, is that both the "Golden & Rosy Cross" and the figures on the Mormon Museum of Church History, have two inverted pentagrams each: One that is protruding, and another that is flat or impressed.
When the two inferior points of the Pentagram are pointing up, it represents the male goat of the Witches' Sabbath.
A human figure with the head pointing down obviously represents a Demon, that is to say, an intellectual subversion, disorder, or madness...
The scene of the fifth Star Point is laid in Asia Minor, a peninsula lying between the Black Sea on the north and the Mediterranean Sea on the south. On the west coast of the peninsula in Lydian, near the mouth of the Cayster river, situated on high ground of a fertile plain, is Ephesus, the residence of Saint John from about 67 A.D. to the end of his life. Except for occasional visits to established churches in Asia Minor, St. John most probably rarely went out from Ephesus. Asia Minor is a region of extraordinary fertility and beauty, but has been ruined by centuries of waste and misgovernment. The exact date of the writing of the Epistle is not known, but is placed between 85 - 95 A.D.
Our information concerning Electa is based, for the most part on Masonic tradition. She was born and brought up in Asia Minor and, naturally, reared under the principles of paganism.
In the strictest sense, paganism refers to the authentic religions of ancient Greece and Rome as well as surrounding areas. It originated from the Neolithic (Stone Age) era. The term, pagan, is derived from the Latin word, paganus, which means a country dweller. The pagan usually has a belief in many gods
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Did you know that the Republicans changed the stars in their official elephant logo to three stars downward in the year 2000, the very year in which Skull & Bones George Bush was "elected" President? This Republican logo is the traditional elephant logo as this book front page cover demonstrates. The book is entitled, "The Pictorial History of the Republican Party", by Beryl Frank, published in 1980. As you can see, the stars on this elephant logo are the same as the traditional stars on an American Flag. On the GOP's official website the stars are facing downward.

Thanks for pointing out that 3 yr old thread.
An attempt to get this one closed?
Associated since the 19th Century with Satanists and known as the Devil’s Goat, this symbol is in fact far older and can be found in ancient Masonic Temples. In Wicca, it is a symbol of the 2nd Degree and magically it represents the Dog Star Sirius and can be used to channel higher energy into material manifestation.
We need man made armor because MAN is the only one we can trust to make that armor.
And even if that armor has a cross on it, that doesn't necessarily mean we support god.
Many knights had the cross as their family crest.
