Yes, like those used to build the structures in the name of God. No these Houses of God were places of peace. Often used as early hospitals during
times of war. Plus other religions erected Houses of Worship, that is also masonry, and Christians were not the only ones to attack other
Don't be a pick and chooser of history.
God is not flawed. Religion is flawed, only because man is flawed. God is good and God is great. God's teaching has always been the same, but it
was perverted through groups of men. Freemasonry notwithstanding has always stood by its principles: love for your fellow man, relieving the
distressed, and spreading truth throughout the world.

Ah yes, the "C" word. A cult can be any group where the members follow similar beliefs and doctrines. This could apply to many groups not just
Freemasons in particular or fraternal groups in general.
Our Oaths appertain to Freemasonry alone. It doesn't interfere with any other duty we owe, whether its to God, country, or family. We are even
charged to be good citizens and obey the laws of the land. And no, we don't give all to the society, our annual dues is the only thing that is
required to stay in good standing. Our Oaths do not break any laws.
Now I'm not saying all Freemasons are good. Every group has bad apples and it is the duty of every Brother to weed them out for the good of the
Craft. Evidence of this is shown by your supposed sources because if they were Brothers and they broke their obligation then I would hazard a guess

1. I have never heard the word "savant" or any conjugation of it used in the Craft nor by any member. You guys give us way too much credit.
Hypnosis? Multiple personalities? Sub-conscience imprisonment?
My question to you: do you hold any degrees in psychology? And do you hold any evidence that this is practiced within the Craft?
2. Talk about far fetched and conjuring up wild things. Plus, Freemasonry has existed long before the creation of Television so what did they do
before? And even when Television and the cinema first came into being there were no "reality shows". Or are you telling me that reality shows has
such an impact that the Craft changed their entire ritual around. I really hope your being facetious.
3. Bach is not God, he was a member of the Craft. Music is just one of the seven liberal arts and sciences. Nothing more.
Again, do you have a degree or any experience in this field of psychology?
4. So wait, he was originally led to be a reality show star, now he's led to believe he's a James Bond wanna-be? That doesn't make sense nor does
it follow any logical pathway. Kill off your family? That is absurd. There is no evidence or truth that Masons are told to kill their family.
You keep jumping around. Each paragraph you claim some different reaction and conclusion to some hypnosis.
5. I can't even respond to this. *facepalm*
