The Masonic Trowel

... to spread the cement of brotherly love and affection, that cement which unites us into one sacred band or society of brothers, among whom no contention should ever exist, but that noble emulation of who can best work or best agree ...

Lt. Col. Gordon "Jack" Mohr

The utter obedience and subservience of Masonic members is gained through the use of horrific oaths! The oath for the First Degree, for instance, contains the promise:

"to hide, conceal and never reveal any part or parts of the secrets of Masonry which are already known to the candidate, or may in any way be learned by him at a future time."

Later, after his initiation, he is required to swear:

"To obey all signs and summonses handed, sent, or thrown from a brother Master Mason, or from the body of a just and lawfully constituted Lodge of Master Masons."

The absolute subservience of the member to the Lodge is seen in promises such as:

"to obey without hesitation, any order whatsoever it may be, of Masonic superiors ... to assist a Companion- Royal Arch Mason when he is engaged in any difficulty, and to espouse his cause, so far as to extricate him from the same, WHETHER HE IS RIGHT OR WRONG."

These and other promises are made under the following oath:

"To have his throat cut from ear to ear, his tongue torn out by the roots, and his body buried in the rough sand of the sea at the low-water mark, where the tide flows twice in the same twenty-four hours.

"To have his skull severed in two and divided to the North and

South, his bowels burned to ashes in the midst, and scattered to the four winds of the heavens."

"To have his skull broke off, and his brains exposed to the scorching rays of the meridian sun, etc."1
