Masonic Prejudice

WARNING:
This hub contains controversial information, which some readers may find religiously offensive.

I'm really getting sick and tired of the prejudicial people of the Hubpages community constantly raising Hubs of pure conjecture and misleading falsehoods about Freemasons being evil.

Interestingly though, these prejudicial people always appear to be Americans (based on they way their words are spelt; incorrectly). Seems that they watch so much Hollywood make-believe that they are no longer able to ascertain the difference between fiction and reality.

I don't know much about the Illuminati, but from what I have been able to ascertain is that they once were a real movement -- dying out around the turn of the 19th century. From what I understand they were heretics (in the eyes of the Roman Catholic Church) and therefore branded as evil do-ers.

Some people lay claim that these Illuminati are still around today and have hidden themselves into the ranks of the Freemasons. Question: Since the Illuminati are a super-secret cult, how do these people know that they exist? Could it be that they are descendents or relatives of this evil cult? Or is it more to the truth that these scaremongerings just make good reading for the ill-advised and un-informed?

For arguments sake, let's say that the Illuminati do exist and that they have infiltrated the ranks of the Masons. Does this mean that it is rightfully justified to cast judgment against all Masons as being evil, and therefore guilty, just because a few bad eggs were amongst them?

if you believe the answer to this as "Yes", then the following must also be true (using the same principle in that if one is bad they all are bad)

  • Osama Bin Laden was a Muslim, therefore all Muslims are evil.
  • Adolf Hitler was a Christian, therefore all Christians are evil.
  • Chales Manson was an American, therefore all Americans are mass-murders
  • Jack the Ripper was a Rapist, therefore all British people are rapists
  • Need I go on?

Are fraternities of men EVIL?

Tell me: would you consider these people to be evil?

  • It is a fraternity of men
  • It does not permit women to join into their ranks
  • They perform rituals of sacrifice symbolic of bodily death and bloodshed
  • They bow down before an ancient device designed to inflict torture and death
  • The uninitiated, general public, are prohibited from coming in to watch (let alone film or video) the goings-on within their secret meetings

If you are thinking I am speaking about the Freemasons you are wrong. I am referring to the Holy Roman Catholic Church; in particular Conclave (the selection of a new Pope).

Pope Endorses Freemasonry

In 1984 Pope John Paul II abolished the excommunication penalty which for some 145 years had prevented Catholics belonging to freemasonry.

Pope John Paul II met with the Freemasons on 2nd March 1984, and after emphasising fraternal interest he stated: "Nous sommes appelés à s'unir usa; [We are called up to unite us]." In order to underline its deepness and religiosity, He cited Psalm 133:1 "Voici, bon et il est agréable d'habiter en frères unité; [How good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity]."

Closing remarks...

I live in a multi-cultural society, there are many people from different parts of the globe where I live, with many different religions. One argument I've heard time and time again, is that Muslim women are treated poorly, as though they second-class citizens to men within their religion. Are you aware that the same is true for the Jews and Christians? Yes, it is! Look it up... Colossians 3:18 and Ephesians 5:22
I dare you!

To those of you who continue to insist on writing hubs that are purely biased works of fiction, claiming "Truth of.." in the titles, and yet are just your own opionated unresearched (or at most researched through non-credible hate sites) I leave you with this thought: When you finally do get to go to your heaven and you're standing there wondering why it is so damned hot? Think again, Look around. See those fires burning? You ain't in heaven mate.

People have a right to their opinion.You cannot place them in your concept of heaven, a place of burning fire for doing so.

Can you believe it I have completely misunderstand what you are talking about. I have a right to view it my way don.t I

I think what the author is saying is that when people post unfounded opinions as a statement of fact, that they are unjustified and dead wrong for doing so

Freemasons do not worship any God in their meetings, nut we do believe that there is a God.

My opinion (and it is just that, opinion not fact)is that there is only one God, just the one for all of us.

Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Jews, etc etc we all worship the same God, we just have different ways of doing so.

And finally Freemasons are forbidden to even discuss religion within the Masonic halls

John Whalley is correct on come things, Freemasonry is not a religion so we cannot worship,

The discussion of Religion and politics is forbidden under the constitution.

We so not worship aincient gods or as it is often claimed by certain fundamentalists Satan or Luicifer.
