This is getting ridiculous, the Cernaeu Rite (which doesn’t actually exist as far as I’m aware) was originally in this message thread said to be an
old English rite that has some minor similarities to the Scottish Rite.
No. The Cerneau Rite was founded by Joseph Cerneau, a French member of the Rite of Perfection, who had moved to Jamaica and illegally began conferring
degrees which he called “Scottish Rite” throughout the Caribbean and southern US, especially in the French-speaking areas of Louisiana. After
Cerneau’s death, his Rite moved northward, and established a Supreme Council of the 33° in New York City, which began chartering spurious Scottish
The Sublime Scotch Lodge of Charleston, which was the legitimate Supreme Council of the 33°, then chartered a new Supreme Council in NYC to combat the
irregularities of the Cerneau Scottish Rite. This was the birth of the Supreme Council, 33°, Northern Jurisdiction, and its Charter is legitimate,
having issued from the Grand Orient of Charleston.
50 years later, when Pike became Grand Commander of the Charleston Council, he succeeded in eliminating Cerneauism in the Southern Jurisdiction by
“healing” the Cerneau Scottish Rite Masons, making them regular. In turn, the former Cerneauists agreed to recognize no other Scottish Rite authority
than the Charleston Council. The Supreme Council of NY followed suit, and the schism was healed nationwide. Only then, was Cerneauism exported to
The Cerneauists used rituals written by Joseph Cerneau, based on the original Rite of Perfection, and were published during the US Civil War by
Jonathan Blanchard in the book called “Scotch Rite Masonry Illustrated”. There are still small Cerneau Lodges in existence in Jamaica and the UK. They
never used the Pike Ritual, which is limited to the Southern Jurisdiction USA (including Taiwan), as well as the Phillipines and Japan, who had later
adopted the Pike work, although they are not under the obedience of the Charleston Council.
Now it appears that whomever wrote it owned a time machine and managed to jump forward to after the reformation by Pike so he could steal the
design and paste it into the rite which is suddenly no longer located in England but now has its Supreme council in New York.
No, it appears you are unable to understand English, in which case I will begin writing in Pig Latin if it would help you.
None of this explains why the book repeatedly refers to the rite as the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite (like, its written on the top of every
second page for a start) and also describes the entire structure of the Northern US Supreme Council and all processes used in Lodges of this Rite in
That has already been explained on this thread (more than once).
Oh hang on – you just admitted that you’re forbidden to tell people what the rites contain – so I guess the whole story about the laurel wreath
and the caps etc is ********
The usual Masonic disinformation nonsense continues.
The only disinformation we’ve seen on this thread has came from you. Any readers of this message are recommended to read the entire thing in order to
see the documented lies that keep being spewed by this “Mr. Necros”.
