The Masonic Trowel

Lt. Col. Gordon "Jack" Mohr

One of the fundamental errors expressed by those who write about Freemasonry, I believe, is that they feel that all Masons hold a common belief and purpose. The truth is, that Freemasonry is in a generic (applied to a class or group), simply a system of binding men together for a given purpose.

The allegories (description of one thing under the image of another), used in Freemasonry, are capable of various interpretations. The re-building of Solomon's Temple for instance, may refer to progress in any Masonic undertaking. The same is true about its "sacred traditions." This system of degrees, of initiations, of binding members to secrecy by fearful oaths, can be employed for any purpose, social, political, philanthropic, or religious. It can promote "good," or disseminate "evil." It can be used to "defend a concept," or "overthrow" it; it can "protect" or "destroy."

But unfortunately, in Grand Orient Masonry, we find that it is not only political in its aims, it is also subversive. Instead of a peaceful trilogy of "brotherly love, relief and truth," it has added from its beginning, the war cry of revolution: "Liberty, Equality and Fraternity," which can never come to pass on this earth as long as it is controlled by human beings.

The aim of Grand Orient Masonry, from its inception, has been to bring about "universal equality." In the matter of "liberty," they preach: "no man shall have a master" and echo the thoughts of the German Jew Feurbach who stated that: "Man will finally be free, when he realizes there is no god of man, but man himself" To believe this falsehood, a man must first divorce himself from any concept of Christianity which teaches that Jesus is King!

The Grand Orient Lodge attacks all forms of religion. Its basis is "absolute liberty of conscience and the solidarity of all mankind." This kind of Freemasonry allows for "freedom of conscience" in the same sense that atheism does, since all its members must profess a belief in some form of higher power.
