We have described condemned freemasonry elsewhere herein and given the reasons. You cannot be a mason and be a Catholic at the same time. George Washington, the father of our country, was a baptized and practicing Anglican, and, a Freemason. We tend to overlook his association with freemasonry because of his heroism, thoroughgoing decency and humility.
Many in his position could have and might have made themselves King.
Who knows what would have become of us, as a new nation, if he would have chosen to run again after his second term, and not step aside and retire from the Presidency.
If he had run, he would have won, and he knew it. And he retired.
It was the first passing of the baton of American leadership.
A new Renew America article by Cliff Kincaid titled Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley is no George Washington sheds new light on the subject.
Apparently there was a difference between European and American versions of Freemasonry. The European variant was influenced by the 'Illuminati', and the American variant was not.
Is that still true?
I ask out of ignorance of the history of Freemasonry. All I know about it is that, today, it seeks to make its own rules, and it secretly conspires to evade all external rules and applicable justice in all areas of life, whether ecclesial or secular, and including economic and legal.
It is a 'government' unto itself, placing its own governance above that of the nation. (See Condemned Freemasonry.)
The question Cliff's article raises in my mind is whether that was true in George Washington's day, or not. It seems totally incompatible with Washington's absolute dedication and deep commitment to the new nation and its Constitution.
Does anybody out there know any more about the history of Freemasonry, particularly circa 1776, than we know?
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again.
Join Cardinal Burke's Storm Heaven Rosary Campaign.
Get behind a President Trump and a Vice President Donald Trump Jr, and make America Constitutional again.
Pray for a strategic collaboration between Abp. Vigano and Trump.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

if you are looking for someone to authoritatively discuss this topic try Gary Lachman former frontman of new wave group "blondie". He is a highly accomplished and deep knowledgeable on subjects of esotericism and occultism having written many books easily viewed on amazon. He had written a book on the russian mathematician PD Ouspensky who was a spiritual seeker and pupil of GI Gurdjieff during the early part of last century. My husband was a pupil in his London group until O's death in '47 and then went to paris to Gurdijieff. I was enormously impressed with the historical narrative Lachman wrote but entirely disagreed with his overall conclusions about Mr. Ouspensky which were specious. He is a good source on freemasonry. You can also try Mark Dice who has written two books on topics of Freemasonry and the Illuminati. He is likely more easily accessed. If you wish to discuss please just respond and we can trade phone numbers.

The major difference between American and European Masonry is that the former version was not pagan in orientation but Christian. Underlying European Masonry was hatred of the Christian God (Christ Jesus) pagan materialism, animism, and other ancient pagan creeds dating back to Babylon.

And is that still true today?

No, it's no longer true. At some time after the founding the European version came into this land, bringing with it pagan elements clothed in 'scientific,' ideological, philosophical, and even Christian clothes.

Thank you; this reaffirms and strengthens my reverence of the memory of George Washington and others among the fathers of the USA who were Masons.

E. Michael Jones - The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit covers this at length. Fabulous perspective regarding our spiritual history.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport. Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matthew 7:13–15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator's supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights." --Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others." --St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
