There is much about Freemasonry that remains shrouded in mystery to the outside world. But a group of members in the US state of Georgia appear to have clarified one thing - the supreme being in which all Masons are required to believe is not likely to be black.
Freemasonry lodges in Georgia are at loggerheads over the admission of a "non-white" member to an organisation that was founded on the principles of the Enlightenment but which is apparently still struggling to catch up
If these representations are not trne; if the
Devil is only a myth and hell bnt a figure of
speech, the authority of the New Testament falls
to the ground. With the Devil and hell gone, sal-
vation loses its meaning ; the savior is left without
an office; the atonement remains unperformed;
the wrath of God resolves itself into a priestly
fiction Christianity is seen to be not a divine
revelation, but a gross superstition that has, for
nearly two thousand years, deceived, betrayed
and martyred mankind.

Freemasonry is an offshoot of the templars and the Cathars.
They favor European blue bloods. Not only are blacks really not welcome most whites are not really welcome either

The Masons began admitting nonwhites to join around the mid-1900s. The wealthy, "blue blood" comment is a crock, my great-grandfather was a 32nd degree Mason and he had nothing to his name. Why you guys are fascinated with the such a marginal and overrated organization is beyond me. The average Mason has no more "power" than the guy who fixes your car.

I wonder, is Obama a Freemason.
I remember when he first started campaigning, a story surfacing about Obama being a member of Prince Hall.
