Lots of people who believe in the basic tenets of the Constitution are just plain people who enjoy having liberty and freedom from oppresion, but that
doesn't necessarily make them masonic material. I personally know atheists who love the freedoms extolled in the Constitution but they could never be
Masons because atheists can not become masons, neither can women for that matter, but they enjoy the same Constitutuonal freedoms the same as everyone
I think the argument could be made that the Biblical belief that we are souls created with freewill was the basis of the Constitutional framework. The
whole idea of freewill in a divinely created being started the whole mess down a slippery slope. When people began to practice the exercise of free
thought and expression it upset the proverbial apple cart and began the breakdown of many of the old feudal and church controlled systems used on the
masses. That basic teaching which stemmed from Judeo/Christian teachings in the Bible was the cornerstone of the Enlightenment. Along with the
printing press and the split in the Catholic church it began a volitile mix for the power brokers and the elite and they haven't been able to stop
the tide, however hard they have tried.
My 2 cents.
