Despite that, what do you think on my view of the reasoning behind the recent demonizing of Freemasonry?
The demonizing you speak of isnt really new, per se, instead its been something the Fraternity has had to deal with for many years over the course of
centuries since Freemasonry has been active. At one point in time ther was a group of people in the USA known as the Anti Mason Party. They had it
out for us for many years, and in some cases, the very same crap they used to spill is still Being used as propaganda against Freemasonry.
Lately, at least in terms of ATS, there seems to be a group of radical Christians who see Freemasons as some sort of threat to their particular
understanding of Christianity. While there is no doubt that several Christian sects have a hard line taken towards freemasons, overall the christian
vs. Freemason issue is a large dead horse. Continually beaten for literally YEARS.
Its refreshing to see that at least a few people have the gonads to actually put the,selves in a state of mind that is receptive to other ways of
life. Freemasonry in no way whatsoever conflicts with any religious system. In fact, it serves to enhance a mans understanding of the Above in a
phenominal way. The issue seems to be that because Masonry is not a Christian institution, some christians automatically see the orginization as a
whole to be against them. In reality, freemasonry will broaden a mans understanding of the One, Universal God. What individuals refer to The Deity
as makes no difference. In the end, all of us our destined to meet Him in the same fashion... We die.
