Agreed. It's not about freemasons. The satanic pedophiles have infiltrated the highest ranks of freemasonry, politics, corporations and everything. These people only make up a small percentage of that group. The majority are people who want to do good. Saying "all masons are..." is like saying "all blacks are", "all Americans are" or "all politicians are". As soon as someone starts stereotyping, they immediately become wrong, as groups of people are made up of individuals.
Hello all. I only have one question to the OP, and all others who state the evidence that there are "High level masons with less than honorable intentions". Please describe to me , in detail , if possible, what is a "High Level Mason?"
Now exchange "Catholic Priest" for "Freemason" and I would be more inclined to believe you.
An objective analysis of the situation suggests, first, that the Catholic church is no worse than others when it comes to the incidence of child molesters in its ranks. Second, whatever the failings of the Catholic hierarchy in dealing with this appalling problem (and they are legion), those sins pale in comparison to the blatant hypocrisy of the Church's enemies on this issue. In fact, some of those adversaries inadvertently assist the process of placing the scandal in context. Sylvia Demarest, a Texas lawyer, won a $119 million jury award on behalf of former altar boys abused in Dallas, and tracked allegations against priests in every part of the country. She told the Washington Post that her updated list of priests who stand accused of molesting children will reach 1,500 names – representing about 2 percent of the 60,000 priests who have served in the United States since 1984. Even this modest percentage may overstate the problem, since no one would suggest that every member of clergy who stands accused of pedophilia is actually guilty of the crime. Ms. Demarest's numbers conform with estimates by Thomas Plante, a California psychologist at Santa Clara University who treats priests who have molested minors. "The best data we have is that approximately 5 percent of priests have a predilection toward minors," he declared. "That seems consistent with other clergy who are not priests (such as Protestant ministers or rabbis)." Moreover, Plante cites research suggesting that among the general population, 8 percent feel sexually attracted to children – a higher percentage than among priests or other clergy. Such numbers, or course, reflect those who feel sexually drawn to contact with kids, rather than indicating the percentage who actually act upon this inclination. The Washington Post, an establishment liberal journal with no reason to whitewash the church, approvingly cites Gary Schoener, a psychologist in Minneapolis whose Walk-In Counseling Center has consulted with more than 1,000 victims of sexual abuse by clergy. He also affirms that the percentage of abusers among Catholic priests is no higher than among Protestant ministers.
The Catholic Church knowingly covered up offending priests actions.

You keep going to this Scottish rite crap... I told you it doesn't matter.... You tell me what is talked about during your meetings that they tell you not to say anything about. Bring a recorder into your meetings and record the full hour and half for five or so weeks in a row(helps with trust)... spill your guts on the whole initiation ceremony and then we'll say that its not secret..... otherwise it proves that there "COULD be a group of people within the masons that are pedophiles as noted in the media and court documents that state this fact.
I hate their mason ideals that they keep SECRET.
