The Others (A-L)

"An empty head is not really empty; it is stuffed with rubbish.
Hence the difficulty of forcing anything into an empty head."

Eric Hoffer (1902–83), U.S. philosopher.

Sometimes it appears the only reason some people speak against Freemasonry is for attention they'll receive. It's true: good works get scant attention while the unruly and ill-behaved are wonderful items for the news.

Some anti-Masons appear 'sparkling' for a few brief seconds in the limelight and then - just as quickly - sputter out (sometimes quite literally) and are gone. Here we'll briefly mention those who've caught our attention.

 

bullet

Marshall Almarode - Uses the tired 'oath swearing' argument and whines because he found rituals that he were told were secret but really weren't (as a result of anti-Masonic exposures by people just like himself). Circular reasoning in the extreme. He also blames much of his problem on membership in DeMolay and yet doesn't even know how to spell the name of the organization to which he belonged for several years. One really must question the discernment involved. You can find his 'testimony' here.

James M. Baker - Claims to have been a Mason for 18 years and Master of an lodge SIX times!!! as well as a son, son-in-law, grandson and brother of Masons but still - apparently - had no idea that Freemasonry allowed men of different faiths to become members. Supposedly after a year of studying, he discovered that Freemasonry wasn't compatible with Christianity and now he evangelizes with Ed Decker. You can read how someone could have missed all of these things for so long and after having been so involved right here.

Eric Barger - Blending religious fanaticism with new world order paranoia, this 'recovered' drug and alcohol addict who abused his spouse will now tell you about all the wrongs in the world - and has, from the pictures, made a pretty fair living out of doing so. An adherent of Gary Kah's conspiracy theories as well as folks like Ed Decker, you can visit Eric's website and learn lots more.

Dave Barley - A 'Christian Identity' preacher, Barley teaches white/adamic domination of race and, along with the many other groups he seems to despise, Freemasonry gets tossed in right there beside the conspiracy theories and hatred. Identified on the well-respected hatewatch. org and by the Southern Poverty Law Center (use the word "Barley" in the search engine there) as a prime example of hate, it's not surprising that Jews and Freemasons would be included in his diatribes. You can find a LOT of Barley's hate-oriented material at his 'America's Promise Ministries'.

bullet

Mark Bayonne - This individual who works in the computer industry is among the 'religious zealot' variety who's convinced that his interpretation of the Bible supersedes that of the many clergy and those trained in religion who've found no objection to Freemasonry. He's promised to pray for this site's author - and we're appreciative. Because our exchanges with Mark were via e-mail, there's no web site or quoted commentary: suffice it to say, however, that we feel his understanding of Scripture is totally incorrect.

Steward Bedellion - This Baptist minister claims that Masons practiced "spiritual warfare" against him, causing him to be removed from his pastorate. Crazy to think that whoever he follows religiously wouldn't have the power to defeat such evil, don't you think? You can read all about his claims right here.

bullet

Josh Bempechat - If you're in Venice Beach, California, you can visit Josh's 'legalization of hemp/marijuana and political conspiracy' stand.  Mr. Bempechat claims to have discovered the medicinal properties of marijuana at age 13 and since then has actively used it for - as he claims - "medical reasons". He also states "HEMP / Cannabis Marijuana was outlawed directly by the Freemasons in this country <the United States> and internationally for the sole purpose of creating synthetic petrochemical and pharmaceutical alternatives that they could sell through multinational corporations they control, at highly inflated prices." and he adds "BUT, when the FREEMASONS find it in their interest to get rid of something for profit and power, it doesn't matter if GOD put it there, it won't get in the way of business as usual for the FREEMASONS." As of 2002, he was proud to note that he had been studying the sovereignty and redemptionist movements for some 7 years. We're naturally curious as to how someone so involved with illegal drugs (he claims, on doctor's orders but fails to say what medical condition necessitates this and the person he claims as his 'doctor' was disqualified as a court witness as being merely a shill for marijuana users) and who ekes out a living by selling brochures at a stand on a pier (apparently for the past several years) is able to uncover these hugely secret world conspiracies. His "Freedom Domain" website will tell you all about them though. Mr. Bempechat writes "I am not stupid, and I am very spiritual and the Spirit guides me in my life, and God is on my side, and looks after me."  <chuckle>

William A. BeVier - The president of an organization called 'Religion Analysis Service, Inc.' of Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA. a supposedly "non-profit interdenominational ministry dedicated to combating false teachings through the printing and distributing of literature covering a large number of cults." Their organization lists anti-Mason Ron Carlson on their 'Board of Reference'. Apparently the business of deceit is profitable for them as their web site was recently advertising a job opening for an office manager.

Lawrence Blanchard - We had originally referred to this individual as a {'Christian Identity' "minister" from Eatonville, WA, USA and active White Aryan Nations member. Supporter of the 'Protocols'. Need we say more?} but on February 5, 2003, we received an e-mail from him stating "I am not a Christian Identity ministry. <sic> I am a pastor of a Christian covenant church and I am not located in Eatonville Washington. Furthermore, I am not, nor have I ever been, an active member or a member at all of any White Aryan nations organization." Perhaps we got it wrong when we wrote that he was a member. If so, we certainly apologize. Nevertheless, he has written a book titled "Standing on the Premises" about which he writes in the Forward: "The Christian-Israel Identity movement is steadily being received by an increasing number of Anglo- and Celto-Saxon people in America with great joy and encouragement." It continues: "...of course, an overwhelming preponderance of Biblical evidence supporting the claim that the White race of European stock, and not the Jews, are God's "peculiar treasure"". And while in his e-mails he says he's discontinued his book, we find it clearly still for sale on the website of the "Tabernacles of the Phineas Priesthood/Aryan Nations" website here. Blanchard claims that the CI label was too broad to describe him but he doesn't seem to want us to find out what flavor of "Christian covenant" beliefs he now holds. We wonder too who's taking care of the orders at that PO Box in Washington since Mr. Blanchard now seems to be using an ISP in the Cincinnati, Ohio area.... You can find an analysis of the 'Christian Identity' movement which Blanchard now ostensibly eschews which includes comments about Blanchard's work by clicking here.

Gary D. Blevins - In 1990, this former life insurance agent privately published a lavishly illustrated paperback book titled "666 - The Final Warning" which explained his conception of yet another end-times conspiracy based on the very tired 'bible code' concept. Using his clearly fool-proof method, Blevins "proved" that Ronald Reagan was the anti-Christ even though in 1990 when it was published, Reagan was not even in power and would soon be totally incapacitated with Alzheimer's Disease. Nevertheless, Belvins argued that Reagan would regain power on a global scale, would rule the world with a supercomputer and would be assisted in his satanic plans by - you guessed it! - the (according to him) satanic cult Masons. Blevins was quite certain of these things and, in fact, advised that in 1991-94 New York City would be destroyed and UFOs would land. In 1998, Reagan would be cast into the Lake of Fire, the faithful will experience the rapture and Jesus will come back. "Most real theologians in our day flatly state that we will not see the year 2000 before the Lord returns! I strongly agree with that statement." Uh-huh...

President Reagan continued to live - although ostensibly without use of his mind due to the ravages of his disease - until 2004. 2000 came and went as pretty much a non-event and those aliens haven't made an appearance now over a decade later. Like many anti-Masons before and since, these absurd claims that a fraternal organization was somehow plotting to overthrow the world is just so much stupidity.

Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz - The evangelical Roman Catholic Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska who in 1996 threatened mass excommunication of parishioners if they didn't terminate their membership in or support of 12 specific organizations. Excommunication means that they cannot receive Holy Communion or any of the sacraments of their Church. One of the most prestigious US Catholic newspapers, The Pilot, was quite critical of Bishop Bruskewitz for his unilateral actions and Chicago's much-beloved Cardinal Bernardin, in a highly unusual move breaking the solidarity amongst Catholic leaders, questioned the Bishop's wisdom. It appears that the Bishop's action was to stifle dissent in his diocese and was targeting 'Call to Action' - a group for reform within the Church. You can read more documentation on this issue here. We also found it quite comical to see John Vennari, rabid anti-Mason, castigating the Bishop, Freemasonry AND the 'Call to Action' group all in the same essay! Read it here. In December, 2006, some TEN YEARS after Bishop Bruskewitz's threat, and in a little-noticed action, the Vatican affirmed his right to excommunicate those who belong to the organizations he had targeted. It remains to be seen whether after all this time he'll chose to re-stir this pot but sadly, this action shows that Pope Benedict retains his animosity towards Freemasonry that was shown during his tenure as head of the church group formerly known as the Inquisition.

Sean Burden - In 1998, 22 year old Sean wrote in an internet-published biography that he had been tossed out of a private high school and had served 4 years with the U. S. Marine Corps as a ground radio repairman. Prior to and during this time (according to Sean's responses in the alt.freemasonry newsgroup), he determined that there was a major conspiracy afoot in the world. Sean says his first inkling of a conspiracy came from a book published in 1797 by a Scottish historian. (In the world of anti-Masonry, it's a 'classic' - John Robinson's "Proofs of a Conspiracy" since then totally discredited.) Added to this was his military experience fixing radios (as a junior enlisted man), which gave him the ability to divine the entire plan for world domination that he says is using "Smart Cards". Sean had posted an extensive document at a free web site to tell us all about it but that site is long gone. As of March, 2006, there's no evidence of the continued existence of his much vaunted TRuSA, something he referred to as a non-organization! In addition to his conspiracy theories, Sean railed against lawyers and said that he refused to pay taxes. Wonder how that's working out for him. Is that the reason TRuSA has been abandoned perhaps? He posted to the alt.freemasonry newsgroup that when he was in the Marine Corps, he'd spit in the food he cooked as part of his military duties. Oh, yes: needless to say, in his mind, Freemasonry is tied in along with the Bildeburgers, the OTO and others. High School dropout figures out world-domination plans: just another day in the whacky world of anti-Masonry.

Lora Burton - A self-described "former Rainbow girl" supposedly for nine years, she claims that she suffered spiritual and psychological abuse from her membership. She has founded "Rooftop Ministries" to - ostensibly - counter cults, especially Freemasonry. There are over a million former and present Rainbow Girls today who would vigorously dispute Lora's claims. Parents are welcome at all Rainbow events, including initiation. Once one sees the beautiful ritual and friendship in Rainbow, the strangeness of this person's claims will become readily apparent.

David Cameron - Marginally literate, Mr. Cameron practices a religion.... Well, we'll let him tell you about it: "1. I believe in the spiritual awareness I attain when smoking marijuana. 2. 6 million who regularly smoke marijuana in this country are them self’s a culture. 3. CAMERONISSIM is my religion." We'd give you that link but because of the language he uses and the links that he has placed on his site, we're simply not going to help him get higher in the filth-link fame. Convinced that the Masons somehow caused spoors to grow in his flat in Scotland, now every checkered black and white thing he sees, not to mention the hand positions of every politician in the world at all events, signal that they're Masons (even though he's told everyone they are so who cares, right?) and that they're plotting to get him and send him back to the hospital. 41 years old, you'd never know it.

bulletDaniel D. Carlen - An anti-Masonic Baptist (type unknown) who had a "bi-vocational ministry" in an undisclosed location. In a lengthy discourse, he points out how he learned of the "...false and deceptive spiritual teachings of Freemasonry." from the book written by Jim Shaw, who lied about his own Masonic credentials and more. (You can read about the Shaw lies on our site and others by clicking here.) Buttressed by his interpretations of the works of Albert Pike and others, he then concludes that all of the problems in this unidentified church were as a result of Freemasonry. When one starts with lies as the basis for their beliefs - and then reinforces them at every opportunity, it is evident that the erroneous conclusion will remain. In the past, you could have read about how Carlen was "Standing for Truth" based on lies on the Kunk website. Now, though, it's gone. Strange how whenever we note the so very obvious flaws in the logic of the anti-Masonic rhetoric there that it subsequently disappears....

bulletRon Carlson - "Pastor" Carlson's tape about the 'evils' of Freemasonry achieved widespread distribution in the late 1980s-early 1990s. Ostensibly a "sermon", Masonic author Art deHoyos has noted in his excellent work titled "Cloud of Prejudice - A Study in Anti-Masonry" that a friend (Father Charles E. Maier, O.C.R.) had noted the similarity in both form and content to an anti-Masonic booklet from an earlier time by E. M. Storms. Using primarily Albert Pike as his 'whipping boy', Carlson's theme will not be unfamiliar to anyone who has looked at the work of contemporaries Ankerberg et. al. More recently, Carlson teamed with Ed Decker and together, they made audacious claims to having expert knowledge of "cults and false religions". Curiously, however, his complaints seem to center around Freemasonry. Carlson had developed quite a business out of his speaking tours. You can read more about him here. He died June 16, 2011.

bulletAnton Chaitkin - Writing as a surrogate for Lyndon LaRouche (yes, that Lyndon LaRouche), Mr. Chaitkin is described by the LaRouche camp as a "historian and investigative reporter". If one looks at his works (here's one), however, they might get a different impression. He lashes out against many things including (but certainly not limited to) former U.S. President George Bush, NATO, some kind of British world-domination theory, the Promise-Keepers, and even another anti-Mason, Pat Robertson! Because of the number of things Mr. Chaitkin rails against, Freemasonry sometimes gets lost amongst the confusion of his multiple conspiracies. It's there, nevertheless, and it's not pretty! Continuously raising the specter of the KKK in relation to Albert Pike and the Scottish Rite, he's convinced that Pike's statue in Washington, DC should be removed. Here's that misleading text.

bulletRoger Chernoff - A great majority of newspapers from high schools and colleges are nothing more than exhibits of immaturity and self-indulgence. I speak from experience having written for newspapers in both venues. Having moved on in life, however, it's always pleasurable to see material which exhibits both wry humor while touching upon human foibles in a way that hopefully improves society. This was extraordinarily evident with an October 20, 2009 piece in the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, student newspaper article by Tannara Yelland, Associate News Editor titled "Civic politics brings out the crazies: Freemasons and squirrels take centre stage at mayoral forum". It's hilarious and you should read it. One of their local candidates is another of those conspiracy-obsessed Masonophobes, convinced that Masons own the big businesses and that they're controlled by Queen of England. Hey, I'm a King! Do you suppose that'll get me something extra?

John Conner - So pathetically desperate to be noticed (and probably to sell his book), this anti-Mason self-admits to being an anti-Mason and has ASKED to be added to this website. Mr. Conner was 'good enough' to send along a Chapter in his book about Freemasonry. Somehow (although not explained just how) Freemasonry is at the root of all the world's problems - ALL of them, it would seem. His rhetoric jumps from subject to subject, never managing to draw a connection except by proximity of his paragraphs. We found his claims totally laughable. As just one example, he uses the long-debunked Taxil Hoax as part of his screed. He talks about how a candidate's picture is posted on a bulletin board, something that the majority of Masons in the world would scratch their heads over. (There are some unrecognized/irregular lodges that do this....) In fact, he seems to dredge up nearly every ludicrous claim about Freemasonry (ALL of which are debunked on this website) while he draws his conclusion that 'something' is going to happen. We even considered making a Chicken Little award for this one. While he rails about the Master of a Lodge being called "Worshipful Master" (see our page on that topic here), he doesn't make a bit of mention about the HORRID title of "Lord Mayor of London". Calling a Mayor LORD? Oh, the heresy.... And probably the most ridiculous part of it all is that he constantly has quoted Jasper Ridley but either he hasn't read the book or doesn't want you to know what Mr. Ridley REALLY says about the rubbish of anti-Masons. We're sorry, Mr. Conner: you're not likely going to get a rush of additional book sales as a result of begging for OUR notice!

Milton William Cooper - One of the most extraordinary examples of paranoid conspiracy to be found, Cooper saw a connection between everything from the Bolshevik Revolution to Orson Welles' War of the Worlds on through Communism and extraterrestrials (although before his death, he had ceased calling the denial of UFOs "the big lie" as he did when he believed that UFOs were real). He had identified radio personality and conspiracy theorist Art Bell as a Freemason totally without proof and believed that everything was part of a Masonically-controlled Illuminati. To give you a better idea, here's what Cooper had to say about the moon landings:

"All names, missions, landing sites, and events in the Apollo Space Program echo the occult metaphors, rituals, and symbology of the Illuminati's secret religion. The most transparent was the faked explosion on the spacecraft Apollo 13, named "Aquarius" (new age) at 1:13 (1313 military time) on April 13, 1970 which was the metaphor for the initiation ceremony involving the death (explosion), placement in the coffin (period of uncertainty of their survival), communion with the spiritual world and the imparting of esoteric knowledge to the candidate (orbit and observation of the moon without physical contact), rebirth of the initiate (solution of problem and repairs), and the raising up (of the Phoenix, the new age of Aquarius) by the grip of the lions paw (reentry and recovery of Apollo 13). 13 is the number of death and rebirth, death and reincarnation, sacrifice, the Phoenix, the Christ (perfected soul imprisoned in matter), and the transition from the old to the new. Another revelation to those who understand the symbolic language of the Illuminati is the hidden meaning of the names of the Space Shuttles, "A Colombian Enterprise to Endeavor for the Discovery of Atlantis... and all Challengers shall be destroyed."

"Exploration of the moon stopped because it was impossible to continue the hoax without being discovered. And of course they ran out of pre-filmed episodes. No man has ever ascended much higher than 300 miles, if that high, above the Earth's surface."

In fairness, we should point out that Cooper later wrote "For many years I sincerely believed that an extraterrestrial threat actually existed and that it was the most important driving force behind world events. I was wrong and for that I sincerely apologize." So the guy gets it wrong and apologizes. Does that somehow mean THIS TIME he's gotten it right? Perhaps, folks - just perhaps - he's gotten it wrong YET AGAIN! His imagined 'Masonic Illuminati' made for apparently lucrative book and tape sales. He had multiple web sites but one we were sending folks to had become a porn site and his 'Harvest-Trust' web site had been closed down as part of an apparent tax avoidance scheme prior to his demise.

Mr. Cooper was killed in late 2001 when two Sheriff's Deputies attempted to serve a warrant on him for threatening a neighbor with a handgun. Cooper drew a weapon and shot one of the Deputies. He was fatally shot in return. Some Cooper disciples whined about it being some part of a conspiracy and that the demurrals on Cooper's website are manipulations by the 'NWO'.  Just can't win.... Oh, and if you came here from the late Mr. Cooper's website where they say "
Milton William Cooper is listed as one of the biggest anti-Masons on this site.", just look around. The guy didn't even merit his own separate page as at least three dozen others did! It is to laugh - and it's not only because of that claim.... There's more on Mr. Cooper on this Masonic website.

Oh, and did you hear that Cooper was shot dead by a Masonic Deputy? Well, we'll tell you the actual source of THAT stupidity: click here and you can see that the origin of this lie was none other than "S", another usenet identity of Sam Moser, identifiable by his e-mail address and other postings. Sam has, sadly, had VERY severe mental health problems for which he has been incarcerated numerous times. Even as the news of the shooting was breaking, Sam posted a message that Cooper was killed, "...shot by Mason Deputy". Sam was good enough to include the story from which he got his information: an Associated Press newswire piece which said that the Deputy was none other than the well-known and easily identified as a Mason, "name withheld". Someday we'll see Sam's stupidity about this event regularly repeated by the conspiracy theorists.

Lorraine Day, M.D. - She has cured herself (although it's pretty shaky: see here) of cancer and she can cure you too, but more, she believes the Holocaust never happened and expresses quite a distaste for those of the Jewish faith, says Swine Flu is a hoax ("It is a U.S. Government Psychological Operation (Psy/Op) to TERRIFY the Public!"), supports all sorts of folks who hate Jews, and - of course - thinks that Freemasons and every other conspiracy group boogey man are hell-bent on taking over the world. Of course, she uses such impeccable sources as the Taxil Hoax and Texe Marrs. I particularly loved her statement that "Its Jewish origins and nature are further demonstrated by the following: 1) It uses only the Old Testament for saying oaths. Use of the New Testament is forbidden....". Apparently 99% of the hundreds of lodges I've visited over the years never got the memo on that one since they've ALL had a King James Bible on the altar. Oh, and if her claim on this were true, why would a so-called Masonic Bible have both the Old and New Testament? Duh! One wonders what it was in her orthopaedic training that prepared for such advanced thinking.  Her site is here - and she'd probably love it if you'd buy something.

Ed Decker - We debated long and hard about whether or not to add any information about this particular individual because anyone who'd looked into his 'story' knew it had more holes than Swiss cheese. Another hating-twin of Bill Schnoebelen, he rants equally against Mormons and Freemasonry although he seems to know precious little about either - although he will certainly make you think he does. His hatred seems to produce a quite livable income and if you follow his monthly newsletters, you'll see that there's always some crisis that he'll only be able to  overcome with God's blessing and (more importantly!) your free-will donation. He's ALWAYS got to pay for something - with your help, dear friend. Tapes, books, and more: not a one with anything but venom - something some of his "Christian Evangelical" followers enjoy to the hilt. There's a LOT about Mr. Decker and his questionable activities on the internet: we'll just point to this and this - from which you can draw your own conclusions. You might argue that these sites don't say anything good about him: neither does he say anything good about Freemasonry or the Latter-Day Saints. Further, when looking at the whole picture, it seems to us that Decker's arguments are 'poisoned fruit'

bulletPierce Dodson - We sometimes wonder about the discernment abilities of a 'pastor' who can read one small anti-Masonic book filled with lies and on that basis decide that an organization of 3-5 million men, many of whom are clerics, is anti-Christian. Dodson (who endorses the lies propounded by Jim Shaw in his book, "The Deadly Deception") went to a church in an unnamed Tennessee town "...(hoping) that the church was not full of Masons." It's odd that someone who wants to save souls seemed so threatened. Based on his attendance at a Southern Baptist Convention meeting where a resolution was discussed (see our page on Larry Holly for more information), his preconceived notions were affirmed. All of his subsequent problems with his church were then - in his mind at least - the result of the "New World Order" and Freemasonry. He cites a statement by a Deacon saying that he'd rather give up being a Deacon than quit the Masonic Lodge. Dodson cites this as an example of his lack of Christianity. To others reading such a statement, it's quite clear that this Deacon had no intention of giving up his religion or renouncing his beliefs in Christ; rather, he was willing to abdicate a position of church leadership if it meant there would be a conflict with a fraternity to which he belonged.

Dodson quotes Adrian Rogers who said, in part, that "...it is better to stand alone with truth than to be wrong with the multitude." In reality, Dodson stands virtually alone in this case with lies and wrong. A speaker and supporter of the Ephesians 5-11 "ministry", you can read Dodson's laments here, where he states that he has not taken a pastorate since 1992 and has been effectively 'banned by the Masons'. Perhaps one might wonder about the motivations for this person's position....

bulletEric Dubay - "I'm a 26 year-old American living in Thailand where I teach English part-time and fight the New World Order full-time." Wow! Such a big deal. (WOO-HOO: Now, a couple of years later, he's given up the English and is teachng martial art part time.) While young men his age are fighting and dying for their country, this self-aggrandizing dilettante wants you to think he's actually DOING something. After having attended a state-sponsored college in the United States with reduced tuition because of his residency, he's now off on a quest to prove that everything is related to everything else whenever it's bad - ignoring, of course, those things which would contradict his fanciful notions. What's particularly sad is that he's even gotten his father involved in this horse-hoohey. Like the other Masonophobes, everything is wrong but only a 26 year old in Thailand has had the capacity to link it all together. Ah, that we should all be so smart. Faked moon landings, aliens controlling the world, bloodlines, and more: nothing escapes his attempt to be the most comprehensive person to have ever written on this stuff - even though there are five dozen other people who'll make the same claim this year alone. You have to wonder when he became so smart: certainly attending the University of Maine at Orono wasn't the place he picked it all up, was it? If you want a laugh, head for his website. What's particularly ironic is that he NEVER mentions those little things taking place in the so-called 'Constitutional Monarchy' of Thailand. Perhaps you remember: the military coup in September, 2006, the rigged elections in December, 2007, the street demonstrations in May, 2008 which were on the nightly news for several nights in succession as the military shot and killed demonstrators, and the takeover of Bangkok's airport.... Since January 2004, thousands have been killed as separatists where he's living but Eric is obviously too busy 'fighting the New World Order' to notice those 'little things', eh? His father seems to hide behind the internet for his anonymity as well, never even causing a small ripple in the Maine news venues which are often desperate for anything to report. "Cows loose in Hampden. Details at 11." was a 'teaser' one night: you'd think with all of the 'stuff' that Eric and Roger know about, they'd both be hollering from the rooftops rather than just blathering impotently on the internet. What's particularly hysterical too is his recent claim that his oft-quoted heroes are government dupes. Have your cake and eat it too, it would seem. WARNING: Trying to sell you everything, it seems, his websites have LOTS of active advertisements, chewing up your bandwidth and staggering normal machines. Be forwarned!

Apparently a former Senior Deacon of a lodge in his town, Mr. Dubios has adopted Pentecostal beliefs and makes charges of anti-religious activity combined with world domination theories. Mr. Dubois uses all of the well-worn claims of earlier anti-Masons as documented on this site but we must wonder if he can cite any specific actions which would support his claims by showing attempts of or by Masons to take over the Maine State government or the Archdiocese of Maine as he asserts. In the state where there are more Masons per capita than anywhere else in the United States, one would think that Mr. Dubois' would be a prime candidate for 'retaliation' yet, curiously, he remains free to rant and rave. In a state which elects governors who are Independents, female senators (the only state with two as of 2002-2010!) and where a Catholic Bishop met with the Maine Lodge of Research, we find his rants sadly empty - and think that anyone who considers the entirety of the situation would likewise. Sorry, Mr. Dubois.

bulletEliza Earsman - When people don't even know the name of an organization they're writing about, you've really got to wonder - but the self-publishing available to everyone today just begs for this type of foolishness. In a claim we've never seen before, it's the "Scottish Ritual Freemasons" who're responsible for not only building the White House but plotting World War III. What the two have to do with one another is really not worth $30 for us to find out but from poking around her website, we found she's not talking about the "Scottish Rite Freemasons" but rather those Masons who live in.... SCOTLAND. "Scottish Ritual Freemasons!", see? And it's TRUE! Those pesky Scots have lodges all over the world including countries like Ghana, Nigeria, and even Jamaica and Korea. If she only knew that somebody of Scots descent was writing this stuff, she'd just KNOW it was a conspiracy. Yep, the Scots are conspiring with the Queen to wreak havoc so you'd better pray hard to avoid this all. Read all about it here.

bulletDr. Peggy Elliott - Holding an "honorary doctorate" from an unaccredited Christian College (which never even mentions her on their website with any announcement of the award, curiously enough) and boasting that she is a speech writer for "a former president" (apparently the ONLY presidential speech writer in the United States who doesn't brag about which particular president they worked for), she has a 'ministry' apparently not associated with any formal belief set. For someone who is trying to claim a tie to Washington, DC through her supposed past work, it's hilarious to note that her prayer list of governmental officials included two Cabinet Members (Richardson and Daschle) who were never even nominated to serve in those posts. This, then, speaks volumes as to her discernment capabilities because this is not 'just a typo': it's a major error (or lie or obfuscation?). Bashing Freemasons is apparently profitable sport these days, though, and her screed about Freemasonry (beginning with the typical foolishness about the honorific of 'Master') is the ONLY book of hers that she's flogging (or that she even mentions authoring despite claims as an 'author'). She's also giving classes on 'Disaster Preparedness'. It would appear that she's clearly understood the maxim, "Follow the money!". She claims that President Obama is a Mason (he's not) and "Elliott’s father was an Illuminate, a very elite group of Free Masons, who shortened his life at age 47 by committing suicide. Elliott has spent almost two decades researching." (See here for book description.) Not quite sure how THEY shortened HIS life by HIS committing suicide but nevertheless.

Billy Evertsen - Creator of yet another "Cult Prevention and Research Ministries" that was really nothing more than a web site which, we now learn, was created by a teen-ager! Mr. Evertsen railed vigorously against Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, the "New Age", Christian Science and, of course, Freemasonry. Previously, at his now defunct web site which you can see a copy of here, he had a large announcement that "CPRM to shut down!" and it was "Due to lack of traffic and lack of good information....". After examining his material on Freemasonry, we certainly agreed with the latter reason. He'd offered to let anyone interested take it over but after a year with no takers, he found the time again in 1999. In 2007, he wrote to us stating that "Long ago and far away, I was a right wing religious zealot and had a website, a section of which was 'dedicated' to spreading lies about the Masons. Now, at 25, I've realized that my 'ranting' about the Masons should have been better directed at the right wing zealots." We don't discuss politics on this site nor is there any commonly accepted definition for the term "right wing zealots" that would translate internationally. Regardless of where Mr. Evertsen feels his efforts should have been placed, he nevertheless defamed and defiled an organization which had done nothing whatsoever to or against him. While apparently he now has woken up, it's a pity that some never leave their state of delusion about the ills of Freemasonry.

Mark A. Flynn - The person behind the HUGE volume of endtimes prophesy and millennium apocalypse pages at the 'Watcher' web site is none other than a 31 year old college student living in Montana, USA but who wanted to move to the Seattle area to find work. Interestingly, his online resume now no longer online made no mention of his fascination with the huge volume of alien, conspiracy, and endtimes theories on which he regularly comments along with the state of the world - but after all, he claims to have two bachelor's degrees: one in Psychology/Economics and the other in Computer Science. We find it interesting that someone whose interests include "...cooking, motorcycles, meteorology, travel and computers" could stir such interest with his dark pages and foreboding predictions. We wonder what Seattle's rainy weather will do to his outlook - and we would have thought that, for someone so convinced that the 'endtimes' is near, Montana would have been a much better place to be. Who knows: maybe after telling us all about the Masonically-controlled fake moon landings, Mark's keeping one secret to himself: it's safer with a Starbucks on every cornerTurning into the 2000s, Mark appeared to become obsessed with numerology, yet another obvious way of getting to the truth. (And as an update, in January 2003, we received a message from Mr. Flynn claiming that it was his twin brother David who did the 'Watcher' website and who is writing the books which the website is now hawking. (You know: the 'evil twin brother' story, right? Yeah....) While the site's author was previously quite well hidden and only revealed through considerable sleuthing, curiously "David" now appears to take credit for much of the material quite visibly. We wonder what caused the change - and how strange it was that "David" would have previously written about the job 'he' needed to get - just like his 'twin brother' whose resume was online. It is to laugh!). And since the end of the world didn't arrive in 2000 as he'd predicted, Mark and his twin brother David have moved on to an end arriving in 2012 - or maybe 2016, just to hedge his (their) bets.

We've found it ironic that an individual who ostensibly cries out for human equality would find Freemasonry - which has had such strong concepts of equality since its beginnings - so troublesome. For some, it seems, 'equality' is simply a means for them to get something for 'nothing'.... In March, 2007 Mr. Gosling started yet another website - ostensibly for Joe Stirling with many more mindless rants, threats and inaccuracies about Freemasonry and its supposed all-powerful world-domination.

Anthony Grigor-Scott - Describing himself as a "non-denominational minister since 1981" (a what?), Mr. Grigor-Scott maintains a very large web site under the rubric of Bible Believers in Australia. While he suggests in one of his newsletters "Don't argue or debate the faith with any who can not or will not see It." he nevertheless reproduces a huge volume of anti-Masonic material including various New World Order and paranoid tracts (Apollo/Masonic connection etc.). You can find nearly every objection to Freemasonry ever conceived here. We found it sadly comical to see his listing of "Selected Elites" in which he tries to name those who're supposedly part of the Bildeburgers, Council on Foreign Relations, Rhodes Scholars, Trilateral Commission Members and members of Yale's Skull & Bones Society - as well as Masons. Of the 329 'Elites' he had identified as of July 13, 1999, only 12 were identified as Masons - and three of those whom he identified as such, were NOT! Using Grigor-Scott's logic, Freemasonry must be powerful indeed; comprising only .027% of the 'Elite' but totally controlling it! Check it out here. You might also want to note that noted journalist and television personality Bill Moyers is named there as both a member of the Bildeburgers and the Council of Foreign Relations (two groups that are regularly used as the boogey-men for all the world's problems) and yet, curiously, another essay on Mr. Grigor-Scott's site praises Moyers' comments ostensibly against secret societies. As with SO many anti-Masons, the old saying "Oh what a tangled web we weave...." is totally apropos. Sadly too, Mr. Grigor-Scott is completely convinced that the Holocaust was a hoax and writes extensively about it here using David Irving's fallacious material for support.  Based on all of this, can you truly believe what he thinks about Freemasonry?

When we first created this site, Mr. Hall was proud to proclaim the evilness of the alleged quote by Albert Pike perpetrated by the Taxil Hoax. Since that time, he has created a page about this which demurs, taking another approach to misconstrue Pike's words.

His writings sought to claim an incompatibility between Christianity and Freemasonry and, in a later volume, he claimed that many UK Masons bought his book because they could not read the small print in their own rituals.

Leslie H. Higgins - To those over the age of 25 or 26, it probably seems ludicrous to profile someone age 18 as an anti-Mason. Nevertheless, these are people who are old enough to drive, to drink, and to serve their country in time of war so they are as much a part of society as anyone despite the fact that we know fully well how immature and uninformed their ideas can be. Mr. Higgins' 'Crusader 88' blog identifies him as a cashier who wants to be a lawyer (uh-huh!) and who is interested in Jewish girls in order to raise a large Catholic family. Mr. Higgins comes from an area where some have been magnetically attracted to what others deem a heretical pseudo-Catholic enclave, the anti-Masonic Crusade of Saint Benedict Center who want to "...turn America into one true Church". It's sad to see young people with such malleable minds being told that the Masons are anti-religion and worse. We wish Mr. Higgins luck as he continues on life's journey. Hopefully when we look in on him a few years from now he will have matured and won't still be a cashier in some store.

Daniel Hopkinson - Evangelical religious intolerants, from every faith camp, always manage to find all sorts of corners of the internet from which to spout their beliefs. When their misunderstandings (often deliberate) are challenged, they simply ignore the facts and continue their rants. Mr. Hopkinson is no different. Co-opting a growing website which was set up specifically to provide LOCAL information about LOCAL events (things like sports, concerts, etc. - but is in many ways just a money-maker with lots of online ads), the 'Examiner' sites claim to have subject matter experts to help others find relevant, local information. In a very few cases that may be true but in general, their hiring ('by e-mail') has caused the site to be overrun with bigoted and personal-objective oriented individuals who otherwise couldn't get a soul to read their blather.  This includes the greatly growing number of "Evangelical Examiners" who proselytize their religious beliefs which include, of course, a skewed view of Freemasonry - specifically the tired old saw that 'Freemasonry excludes Jesus' or that Freemasonry promotes its own brand of eschatology. Because of some strong search engine formulas, these people are popping up more and more on search engines when, in fact, they're usually not worth even a three second scan. Mr. Hopkinson is an example of this new breed of online gadflies. When his arguments are refuted in comments to his claims, he falls back on the expectation that Freemasonry must provide written documentation to prove him wrong. He delights in the power of his temporal bully pulpit to spew one more sham using tired arguments while referring to himself in the third person as "this Examiner", apparently quite proud of his self-created position. Even when irrefutable facts relative to the phoniness of the claims made by Jim Shaw are presented, he hides under the cover that 'no one person speaks for Freemasonry'. He's simply not intellectually capable of realizing or intellectually honest enough to accept that FACTS speak for themselves. ...............

Pastor David S. Janssen - Circulating on the web from time to time are a compilation of three anti-Masonic sermons delivered in September, 1997 in State College, Pennsylvania, USA. In these sermons, the pastor urged members of his church to disassociate themselves from Freemasonry and he further announced that Masons would be ineligible for membership in his church. (Masonicinfo Note: Interesting concept - Throw out the 'sinner' so they won't hear the Good News! Perhaps it's that the Pastor doesn't want to be 'soiled' by having those whom he thinks are doing wrong in his congregation. Not a concept in the recognized Christian concept of salvation, is it?)

The single source for the Pastor's condemnation was a 1914 printing of Charles T. McClenachan's THE BOOK OF THE ANCIENT AND ACCEPTED RITE (first edition 1867). This work was one person's interpretation of the Scottish Rite rituals in existence even before they were revised exhaustively by Albert Pike.  Mason Art deHoyos has written a detailed analysis of Pastor Janssen's ten top errors and this has been published by the Masonic Service Association in their June, 1998 Short Talk Bulletin.

In SO many of these cases, there is far more to the story than a vexatious litigant wishes us to know. Realistically, Mr. Jenkins feels wronged. That Masons would somehow single him out for such odd and sustained persecution defies imagination.  Oh, and we should note too that Mr. Jenkins writes a lot about the evils of Zionism as well so the Jews are out to get him as well it seems.

How did Mr./Ms. "T J" Jensen reach this curious conclusion? Well, they discovered - thanks to the web - that the Scottish Rite's National Heritage Museum in Lexington, Massachusetts had a 'VanGorden-Williams' library. Apparently it never occurred to Jensen that there might be more than one person in the world with that surname! It will probably not surprise you when we note that the late Brother VanGorden, a highly respected and well-loved Scottish Rite Mason, was NOT the same person as the anti-Mormon minister. Nevertheless, it is an interesting object lesson on what foolish conclusions can be drawn when people don't do even a modicum of research before condemning Masonry and Masons.

Keith/Alan Johnson - Apparently we find what we look for & what we think. If it's inane to you, then so be it.
                                                                                                      (Alan Johnson Alt.Freemasonry post of 10 June 2007)

Some who regularly participate in the USENET newsgroup alt.freemasonry may take exception at the inclusion of Keith Johnson simply because for the first few years of his now decades-long posting, he was generally benign and past did not exhibit overt hostility. As we moved into his second decade of being told how to spell the word "NO", however, his undefined 'end of days' philosophy makes him more shrill. He is also more insistent on getting attention but carefully avoids posting when there are other flame-wars erupting so as to avoid getting lost in the crowd. Keith loves attention if nothing else!

He rants seem to involve some sort of unified field theory about Freemasonry and his postings are - well, convoluted at best. When he began posting, he claimed he was named Alan while his son - whose account he was using - was named Keith. More recently he was alternating between those two names but now seems to have switched to Keith entirely. Regardless. He uses a software program (Copernic - it's a GREAT program!) to search out the most obscure word connections on the internet and then will post a message with a link to some obscure website with some pithy and provocative comment or (pseudo-) question that - three-quarters of the time - has no relationship whatsoever to the content on the cited site (which about 95% of the time has no relationship to Freemasonry whatsoever). It seems that Mr. Johnson seeks the 'answers to the universe' on the internet and is somehow convinced that the Masons have (or had) this information and are deliberately obfuscating things so that he cannot find the answers he seeks. Like a child on a beach collecting individual grains of sand, Mr. Johnson seems at a loss to explain what he's got but he's certainly convinced that he's 'onto something' - and he'd be able to identify it if only the Masons would let him. While the inability to create his unified field theory evades him (and escapes his ability to even logically address what he's seeking), he continues undaunted. After over a decade of rejection, often delivered with painful truths that would make even a child embarrassed,  Mr. Johnson perceives any comment or criticism as being part of a huge conspiracy to keep HIM from finding 'the truth' - and to be the first one to do it as well. In over a decade too, he has been unable to properlyy configure his newsreader to provide appropriate and intelligible quote-backs despite repeated requests and helpful instructions. He has, on occasion, attributed his sloppiness in both research and message formatting to the effects of dyslexia and ADHD. Upon closer questioning, however, he admitted that these problems are self-diagnosed. Is he an anti-Mason? Based on his bizarre contentions, one could easily put him in that category.

Getting a simple yes or no answer out of Keith is an exercise in futility. Because the human mind seems to value order and congruity, readers of Mr. Johnson's vague allusions seek to 'flesh out' his beliefs so as to better understand what, specifically, he's questioning and/or claiming. Assuming his postings have logic, however, is a huge stretch of imagination (as becomes quickly obvious). For a couple of years, his ramblings seemed to lead back to his belief in crop circles and aliens which, he hinted is part of the knowledge Freemasons have but just won't share with him. It is telling that Mr. Johnson, while apparently believing that he is solving the secrets of the universe, still has not mastered the basics of grammar and punctuation. He adamantly refuses to engage in conversation in more relevant online venues because, clearly, he's completely ignored anywhere else. When confronted with examples of how his 'connect-the-dots' methodology has been erroneous or even when he's asked the most basic of questions, he quickly changes the subject and offers additional - and even more totally irrelevant - website links, never wanting to either admit error or accept the fact that his fanciful claims are entirely without either relevance or merit. Some have suggested that he use this link but each post asserting the irrelevance and absurdity of his 'findings' is met with more resolve as he becomes increasingly convinced that he's 'getting close' and is being sidetracked by those with the knowledge he wants! He knows he can define Freemasonry and Freemasons if only the Freemasons would let him! His 2008 posts were actively warning of  immediately impending 'end times' disasters and have more Biblical predictions accompanied by demands that Masons 'fix the problems' of the world. We expect to some day find a photo of him carrying a sign proclaiming "the, end i snear" <including the misspelling> or some such thing.

In November, 2008, Mr. Johnson announced that he'd be leaving the alt.freemasonry newsgroup with the words "I am no dog Sir and with that I bid you farewell and good riddence!
<sic>" Of course, in the whacky world of online anti-Masonry, nothing ever lasts forever and July, 2009 saw him back again with the start of likely a lot more ramblings based on his misunderstandings of a work of fiction. In one post on 7/25 he signed as "Keith" and less than 10 hours later was "Alan". Ya just gotta wonder about this boy....

(I've added the Registered Trademark symbol because he's got it on his site. However, a simple check of the US Trademark office don't show any such registration!) This organization has hosted numerous anti-Masonic speakers and sells anti-Masonic books. Of course, their interpretations of things are quite suspect. In 1997, Johnson stated that we would not make it through 1998 without an internal revolution in America, a war in the Middle East, or a stock market crash, none of which happened and we're still here more than a dozen years later. To 'cover their bets' on their predictions, they'll tell you how to buy diamonds (and from whom!) as a hedge for potential Y2K problems and for the truly needy, there's a 'Video of the Month Club' for just $250/year. If you REALLY want to get involved, you can fast for one day a week until God sends him a sign about the actual date of the endtimes - and also a million bucks to publicize it. Of course "Stan estimates we need at least $10 million dollars to effectively reach America in the remaining months." (Must be expensive to put such announcements on the nightly news, eh?) Anyone want to bet that if he got that much money, the 'sign' wouldn't be telling him to head to some foreign country without extradition laws? Anybody?

Peter Fotios Kapnistos - It seems to follow like day the night that when someone's name appears on our 'list of people' they tend to react. Some of them even add material about how 'the Masons' are after them using this site as an example. It is to laugh.... So often, they'll write to comment on how being listed on our site will ultimately help them in some way and they congratulate us for noticing them. Almost invariably, though, at some point shortly thereafter they're back sending e-mails to wail about being 'noticed'. Some, like Mr. Kapnistos, then proceed to try and justify their foolishness on their own websites. The "BlackRaiser" (cute how some of them have these self-created nicknames, isn't it?) also refers to himself as Mr. Kapnist and was noted due to his bizarre "BlackRaiser" website which, while regurgitating many of the same, tired anti-Masonic rants also takes things off in a different direction with bizarre assertions of direct ties of Freemasonry to the Ottoman empire. He writes, "In every major western city today we can now find secret Masonic lodges dedicated to Eastern Shrines, the wearing of the Ottoman fez caps, the subtle debunking of Jesus, and a reference for genii and Arabian tales."

Pssssst! Mr. Kapnistos: they're called THE SHRINERS! They've got a half-million members and support 22 hospitals for burned and crippled children! They aren't 'secret Masonic lodges' by even the broadest of misunderstandings. Don't blink 'cause there's one forming in England right now! WOO-HOO....

Mr. Kapnistos' site links to numerous anti-Masonic websites to 'prove his point' that there's some connection between the Ottoman Empire, Muslims, and Freemasonry. He had linked to our page debunking the noxious Shrine Fez claim taking our words totally out of context for that link to make his assertion. He wrote to us in July, 2005 to say "I have also noticed that while freemasons will officially deny any conspiracy, they seem more inspired and stimulated about conspiracy theories than anyone else! It seems to be their bread and butter. (Masonicinfo Note: It's curious, though, that in another message he wrote "But some of my best friends are high-ranking masons." You know, you'd think that if Masons were as bad as he claims, he wouldn't have them as "best friends", wouldn't you?) You should therefore know that I was once a part of US naval intelligence and had direct contact with the Office of the Vice President. (Masonicinfo Note: It is our experience that those who brag to strangers about their experience in 'naval intelligence' tend to be much like William Cooper but Mr. Kapnistos has now added material to his site showing that he had ostensibly written a letter to US Vice President Walter Mondale about - nope, not Naval Intelligence matters but rather.... hold on for this one.... BOOK BINDING!!!!! Oh, and what's more, it wasn't NAVAL INTELLIGENCE and he wasn't a part of it: it was NASA - the National Aeronautics & Space Administration. They're just a bit different, though he doesn't seem to know that. Here's a clue: one deals in national security and the other has those big rockets that carry the astronauts into space.) My attorney at the Hague will probably look into the legality of your online "profiling" methods." (Masonicinfo Note: Oh, and now he's determined all by himself that there's some sort of nefarious group doing this so-called profiling with me as their lackey. <ROFL> I wish somebody would tell me who they are so I can ask for a raise!) but later adds "Announcing my name on your website may actually help my publishing plan."  A month later Mr. Kapnistos sent an e-mail to the United Grand Lodge of England to complain about this site saying "I have repeatedly stated that I do not oppose all forms of Freemasonry. My websites criticize Ottoman militancy and pro-Muslim charities that could funnel money to terrorists. MI6 is concerned about it and you should be too." Yes, and that has something to do with the subject at hand? He also proceeded to tell the Grand Lodge that they need to "...state their opinion on Harry Potter...." and more. We're sure they will consider his advice as worth what they paid for it. He mocks this site by trying - absurdly - to tie the regularity of the Grand Lodge of Maine with a reply he received from a spokesperson for the United Grand Lodge of England that they thought I was an American and that they don't recognize MY site! Of COURSE they don't - since I am, in fact, an American and this is a personal website! Well, DUH. And then came the 'clincher' in his message to them that he shared with me: "What's worse, Mr. King is apparently standing in the way of me being accepted as a useful member of your society. Please ask yourselves: Should I be publicly "black-listed" by unauthorized crackpots even though I have received correspondence from the Vice President of the U.S., am in contact with one of the world's leading psychics, (Masonicinfo Note: that must have impressed them VERY greatly because having a member in contact with one of the world's leading psychics is SO very helpful to a Masonic lodge) and could prove to be a valuable resource within your society?" He adds in closing: "'The stone the builders refused became the head stone of the corner.' Please remember the simple 'cephas' parable. A person once profiled or humiliated by your members may one day become the leader of your society." Part of the Royal Family, are you Mr. Kapinstos? We don't think you're going to be the leader of the UGLE unless you can pull THAT little trick out of a hat - and even if a member of the Royal Family were not the leader of the United Grand Lodge of England, we somehow don't quite see Freemasons clamoring to have you fulfill that role. Best of friends with "high ranking Masons" but they're all devils. He hates the Masons but whines that my site might deprive him from being the head of them. He's also made a claim that I maintain an inappropriate type of website somewhere unspecified. Of hilarious note too is that this claim was the false, unsubstantiated and libelous quasi-assertion made by Mike Restivo who announced that he (also) could become a Grand Master in his jurisdiction if only the Masons (and I) hadn't stepped in his way. The irony of some anti-Masons never ceases to amaze.

Glen Kealey - The creator of a website called "Canadian Institute for Political Integrity", Mr. Kealey writes 'stream of consciousness' material that would make even Sartre gape. As but one example: "Rats were responsible for showing Troglodyte Neanderthals the underground passageway between Asia, Antarctica and South America. The Neanderthals settled on Antarctica prior to the last ice age (25,000 BC). Later, once they developed the laser (Lazerus) they began to tunnel in straight lines through the Basalt region of the MOHO DISCONTINUITY." Mr. Kealey truly loves the word "troglodyte" and hates Masons, claiming that they somehow control the planet. He demands that action be taken against them for their illegal actions and yet, curiously, he has illegally placed copyright material owned by Nelson King and the Philalethes Society on his website without attribution. So much for integrity.  His essay on Freemasonry's origin and on the Scottish Rite should provide readers with a good belly laugh.

bullet Jim Keith - There are a lot of 'fringe' folks who seem to think Freemasonry is involved in something or another. At Iluminet Press, you can find the "Alternative 3" which purports to explain that "The rich elite of the world have initiated a secret program of space migration to escape the environmental pollution & overpopulation destroying the earth. A secret joint USA-Russian space program has established bases on the moon and Mars. UFOs are actually secret government aircraft with capabilities far beyond what we have been told. Top space scientists from around the world are being abducted to provide personnel for the space bases. Citizens are being kidnapped and subjected to mind control to serve as slave labor at the secret space colonies" This is possible, apparently, because of "early Freemasonic psychiatric projects". Jim Keith died in 1999 at the age of 49. His "followers" have mused about his death being part of some horrific conspiracy despite medical evidence to the contrary. To date, they have failed to provide a explanation beyond that offered by medical authorities. We have no doubt, however, that sooner or later someone will try to tie this to a "Masonic Illuminati" in some fanciful imaginings.

bulletD. James Kennedy, Ph.D. - Sometimes evangelists are such 'monkey-see, monkey-do' types. Apparently having seen that some religious intolerants lionize anti-Masonic rhetoric, Dr. Kennedy's Coral Ridge Ministries now offers Ron Carlson's tapes - somewhat quietly, and seemingly done so as to not upset Masonic donors - as part of their stable of so-called 'Christian' teaching material. We think it's truly sad that those who hold themselves out in positions of religious leadership would succumb to such chicanery. Dr. Kennedy died 5 September 2007 but his ministry still hawks that junk.

bulletDevvy Kidd - Writing that "Freemasonry was banned in the Catholic Church for over a thousand years until the current Pope, John Paul II, came to power. His first act as Pope was to lift this ban for the first time in over a 1,000 years.", it seems clear Ms. Kidd has precious little knowledge of history. For those unaware, the rest of the world knows that the first comment on Freemasonry by the Catholic Church came in 1738 and that Pope John Paul II NEVER changed the Church's position on Freemasonry. Kidd's unique claim uses several other anti-Masons who've been discredited here yet, curiously, not a single one of them made such a wild and bizarre claim. Looking for laughs? Check Devvy's websites here and here.  She wallows in a huge conspiracy-filled world and we'd suggest that Ms. Kidd's arguments based on her 'research regarding the US Constitution and US tax laws are comparable to the accuracy in her 'research' relative to Freemasonry. You'll find her listed among major tax-scam artists here.

bulletRoy Jose Lorr - Mr. Lorr arrived in the alt.freemasonry newsgroup in 2002 after thinking he had been removed from a moderated Jewish newsgroup as a result of his disruptiveness. (He claimed religious persecution....!) Why he chose alt.freemasonry is clear: he simply wanted to continue his attention-getting disruptions. His antagonism towards Freemasonry seemed to stem from his religious beliefs which, from all appearances, were self-created. He stated, for example, that "Written Torah is the [only] <his use of bracket> work of non-fiction in existence." and that the 'Written Torah' he follows consists of the first five books of the Bible ONLY. His more egregious commentary is noted on a separate site which we maintain in order to separate filth from this one. See here. Mr. Lorr also is convinced that if an organization does not speak out against something, then - ipso facto - they support it. He uses the example that the United Grand Lodge of England did not speak out against Hitler and despite explanations that Freemasonry does not involve itself in political or religious matters, wants to use that to support his theory. He is unwilling, of course, to prove that he himself has 'spoken out' against any number of particular problems. Spoken out against the genocide in Darfur, Mr. Lorr? Please provide the proof because if you can't, then you're obviously in favor of it - by your own logic at least.

bulletR. Lothamer - This Eugene, Oregon resident hosts the "Be Wise As Serpents" website, a militia/tax evader/"Christian Identity" (i.e., white racist) believer who uses a bizarre concoction of religious beliefs into which is mixed antagonism towards Freemasonry as well. Evidence of their connection with these beliefs is shown through the fact their site is mirrored on the infamous posse-comitus web site (which says "We love these guys!"). Judge Freemasonry by its enemies!
