I don't know about anybody else, but I swore my my oaths, vows, and obligations to God.
JS Ward exposed nothing. Silly rabbit.

There is no disdain for the Catholic Church by the Fraternity as a whole. As to individual thought, that is up to them. I hold no real animosity to
the Catholic institution.
As to your link and assertion of "general curses of Freemasonry".
To specifics in the link:
First off, there are no Masonic curses. That's just stupid.
There is no idol worship or idolatry in general within Freemasonry.
I renounce witchcraft, the principal spirit behind Freemasonry, and I renounce Baphomet, the Spirit of Antichrist and the curse of the
There is no witchcraft in Freemasonry nor does Baphoment, the Anti-Christ, or "Luciferian doctrine" play any part in our rituals and ceremonies.
I renounce the idolatry, blasphemy, secrecy and deception of Masonry at every level.
What's wrong with secrecy? There's nothing in the Bible that renounces secrecy. Nor are we deceptive.
I specifically renounce the insecurity, the love of position and power, the love of money, avarice or greed, and the pride that would have led
my ancestors into Masonry.
Insecurity seems to be a characteristic of the anti-Mason which is seen by their actions and their attempts to control everything.
Nothing in Freemasonry talks about the love of power. In fact we warn against those who greedily seek power; tyranny and oppression is rejected in
Freemasonry. Nor do we love money and avarice is something renounced in Freemasonry.
I renounce the calling of any man 'Master.'
If you call someone "Mister/Mr." then you are calling them Master. People should really study more.
There is nothing in the 1st degree that induces fear of any kind or confusion. You're site is misconstruing and fabricating malicious lies. Nothing in
the 2nd degree or Freemasonry in general teaches indifference, apathy, unbelief, or any of the other nonsense; in fact it teaches the very opposite.
The 3rd degree is not about the fear of death (the exact opposite actually) or resurrection. Yet again another misconstruing of something someone had
no real knowledge of. It's really sad to see that so many have to lie to force their agenda. Far too many so called "christians" have taken up a
militant mantle and thrown aside Jesus and His compassionate teachings.
I could keep going, but you get my meaning. The rest of it on the Scottish Rite and York Rite is false as well. Apparently "thou shall not lie"
doesn't count when you're trying to deep-throat others with your beliefs.
EDIT: And note, I am a Christian myself, but I renounce people who speak about something they know nothing about.
