I contacted one of my best friends from when I was kindergarden to write me a recommendation letter and he is Catholic, and he told me that the
freemasons are anti-Catholic?
This is true. When the Knights of Columbus host a Spaghetti Dinner we host a Spaghetti and Salad Dinner, just to steal their thunder!
We also have better hats and swords in the Templars >=)
you can't be a christian or catholic and be in freemasonry .
I could have sworn ... and I don't know, it's probably that crazy 12 years of Catholic education I went through .. that being a Christian was a
state of mind, a way of practice, a display of action and a way of faith.
I was unaware that being a Christian meant the identification of one group or another and exclusively so.
You can be a Christian and be a Mason. Any Christian who says otherwise is a hypocrite, a fool, a bigot and I can assure you, not a Christian at
So is this true there are no Catholics and do you really hate Catholics?
Freemasonry cannot have a stance on Religion, we do not talk about it.. any creed my join, we don't ask, we don't care. As long as you believe in a
God of some form.
And technically, it's Catholics and so called "Christians" (who are actually more in line with Satanist that they preach against) that despise
Masonry for all it's "open mindedness" .....
So I hear you are automatically excommunicated from the Catholic church if you are a mason.
That actually is true.
No one, especially in America will enforce that..
Except one douche bag Cardinal who reiterated it a few years ago.. he was somewhere down South..
Anyways, excommunication literally means you cannot take communion .. I'd withdraw my right to a Jesus Cracker for my Lodge any day.. not much a fan
of bigots, see..
Most of the "important" founding Fathers were Freemasons, and even more were Deist (who don't recognize organized religion)
America was founded on Enlightened Ideology (which was the foundation of Masonry) as well as the Christian belief system with a Roman/Greco legal
system tied with Judeo/Christian philosophy. Why would everything have to be exclusive to make sense? That in it's self makes no sense.
