What a novel idea, researching Freemasonry by visiting a Masonic website ... sort of like getting to the truth about TF by going to their websites. I would recommend they visit a few others such as: http://freemasonrywatch.org/albertpikeandkkk.html,
or for the Christian, they might prefer http://www.bloomington,in.us/~lgthscac/freemasonry.htm.
The following quote is from Albert Pike, Soverign Grand Commander, A & A Scottish Rite, Alexandria, Va., 13 September, 1875.
"I took my obligations (vows) from white men, not from negroes. When I have to accept negroes as brothers or leave Masonry, I shall leave it ... I am interested to keep the Ancient and Accepted Rite uncontaminated, in our country at least, by the leprosy of negro association."
Albert Pike was the head of the Supreme Council which is the controlling body of the Masonic movement worldwide.
Another fascinating commentary from the freemasonrywatch.org website reads: "Freemasonry, that is to say organized Freemasonry practice the big lie technique. More to the point organized Freemasonry has perfected the big lie technique. They term this doublespeak "diverting the discourse...The use of the term 'anti' is one of pure Orwellian rhetoric. All those who write critically of Freemasonry are 'antis' and all 'antis' are frauds, liars, zealots or extremists and cannot be accepted. Therefore there is no such thing as a legitimate work criticizing Freemasonry because by its very nature it must be 'anti' and organized Freemasonry will accept no references from 'antis' in any debate or discussion of Freemasonry." Sounds like some other folks we know, doesn't it?
And just a bit more cement for the stew, how about the conclusion of the 10th degree of the Scottish Rite oath (written by the infamous Al), "... and in failure of this my obligation, I consent to have my body opened perpendicularly, and be exposed for eight hours in the open air, that the venomous flies may eat my entrails, my head to be cut off and put on the highest pinnacle of the world and I will always be ready to inflict the same punishment on those who shall disclose this degree and break this obligation..."
You are right partially, that is, the Masons do seem to have a lot of BS.
