Editor’s Page
S.M.A.R.T.’s first year is over. In one year, we’ve seen our subscription rate quadruple. Our newsletter has doubled in size and has been listed in numerous publications and resource lists throughout the country. It has been on several literature tables at a variety of conferences throughout the country. If you are going to any conferences or groups and would like to distribute the newsletter, please let us know.

Most importantly, people are becoming more and more aware of the possible connections between secret societies and ritual abuse, particularly very large secret societies, like the Masons and the Mormons. With your help, we hope people will because even more aware of the problem of ritual abuse. We hope that someday it will be eliminated, and children will be safe everywhere.

Book Review
The Dark Side of Freemasonry (Huntington House Publishers – 1994) is a collection of articles about Freemasonry from a Christian perspective. It was edited by Ed Decker. Several of the authors have written books about Freemasonry and have been mentioned in previous newsletters. Further information about the book will follow the article.

Warning: Information in this article may be triggering, please read with caution.

In the first article, “Freemasonry and the Church: A Christian Worker’s Perspective,” Ed Decker begins by discussing his own personal past. He talks about his Masonic relatives and the connections between Masonry and Mormonism. He tells a story about being told by a Mason to stop disclosing Mormon church secrets, because the secrets were so similar to Masonic ones.

He gives a brief history of the Masons. The original (Operative) Masons had secret handshakes and signs so Master Masons (Stone Masons) could go from city to city to work and impostors were kept out of the craft. Off the job, non-craftsmen joined them socially. He calls this “Social Masonry.”

“Spiritual/mystic Masonry goes back to the crusades. Eastern Mysticism came into the church via the Knights Templar. Crusaders brought Kabalah, Eastern Mysticism and Egyptian and Gnostic mysteries into the church. Also, the Essenes and priests of Nimrod (Babylonian mysteries) wore aprons that look like today’s Masonic aprons.

He mentions the following facts. The early power base of the Masons was the wealthy and powerful Knights Templar. Through the Illuminati the Masons (allegedly) became politically powerful. They helped influenced the French and American revolutions. In 1717 the first Grand Lodge met in England. The Declaration of Independence is written on a Masonic apron made of white lambskin.

He describes several of the Masonic rituals, and discusses Manly P. Hall’s (a high Mason) (possible) connections with Luciferianism. He mentions the Masonic use of the word “Abaddon,” which in the New Testament is “the king of the pit of hell.” The Eastern Star emblem is similar to the Goat of Mendes (Baphomet), its initials F.A.T.A.L. stand for the fatal attraction and bondage of Eastern Star. The Congressional Medal of Honor has an inverted star with three dots after each point (Masonic points). The streets around the White House were designed by a Masonic architect and form the Goat of Mendes. Jefferson and Franklin were both Masons. The statue of liberty was given by French Masons to American Masons and has Masonic occult symbols all over it.

He discusses several cases where Masons in court had (alleged) ‘advantages’ over non-Masons.

The origin of the red fez (may have) come from when the Muslims defeated the Christians in Fez, Morocco. After they murdered 45,000 people they dipped their white hats in the blood.

An article in the Orlando Sentinel mentioned that 98% of the money raised in Shrine circuses was (allegedly) going to Shriner’s parties, not their hospitals.

The Knights Templar degree includes garments with pictures of a severed head dripping with blood, gory, severed heads, legs and arms, and a human cut skull that can be used as a drinking vessel. “I believe that Masonry is a multi generational curse” (page 30).

The second chapter, written by Tom McKenney “The Public School Connection” discusses in part why the Masons promote public schooling. He alleges that the Masons are attempting to weaken all “traditional values and then replace them” in the public schools.

In Dick Smith’s “Freemasonry and the Hew Age World Religion,” he talks about the (possible) connections between Masonry, religion and the New Age movement. The article discusses the plan of creating one world religion.

He quotes Albert Pike and Manly P. Hall and shows how Masonry itself claims to be a religion and is identical to the mystery religions. Several quotes show a connection between the “Devil” and Masonry. “The Devil… is not a Person, but a force, created for good, but which may serve for evil’ (Pike – page 70). Alice Bailey is quoted as saying that certain parts of Masonry will help form a New Age world religion.

In Reverend Harmon Taylor’s article “Mixing Oil With Water,” he describes how the Masons (allegedly) killed a man for exposing their rituals. And I quote, “In the 1800’s, Masonry was exposed, and the Masons abandoned their lodges for the shame of it. It cost one man, William Morgan, his life.. This man wrote all of the rituals of Masonry in a book. The Masons (allegedly) kidnaped him from Batavia, New York, then they moved him out to Niagara, stored him in Ft. Niagara for three days, and then they took him out in a beat. They tied a rope – the Masons would call it a cabletow – around his waist…with a weight on it, and gave him one half hour to make his peace with God. Even though he pleaded that he might be spared so that he might be able to care for his wife and his children, they (allegedly) killed him anyway ….. This is the deathbed testimony of Henry Vallance, the men who pushed William Morgan off the bow of that boat.” (Pages 103-104)

“Let me … tell you .. more about Henry Vallance. He was never arrested, and never tried for the crime… The justices and law enforcement officials (allegedly) took great pains to conceal and to deceive… The Masons even established two false editions of Morgan’s book. They circulated the false editions.. and said, “Why these rituals aren’t correct!” Then these Masons would become the spokesmen to prove that the Morgan book was a lie.” (Pages 104-105) After this incident 90% of the Masons in this country left their lodges.

Rev. Taylor also describes several incidents where Masons (allegedly) illegally protected other Masons when they were peddling drugs, bouncing checks and forging money orders. He describes the alleged illegal destruction of criminal records. As a former 32nd degree Mason he describes Masonic rituals. He also names other Masonic groups, Amaranth, the Eastern Star and the White Shrine. He talks about a debate in Michigan where the Eastern Star openly admits the five pointed upside down star is “evil.”

In Mick Oxley’s ‘Freemasonry Around the World” he describes some of the differences between Freemasonry in America and the rest of the world, as well as the history of Freemasonry in Europe.

He mentions that the Knights Templar came to the British Isles after being banished from the continent in the 14th century. The knights strongly influenced British Freemasonry. It was mixed with the Illuminati of Germany (Adam Weishaupt). Freemasons were licensed at guildhalls. The guilds met at pubs. In 1726, all the ledges formed the Grand Lodge of England. He mentions that English Freemasonry was expensive and kept him “in the red” until he left the order. (Author’s note: cults often keep people dependent on them by financially weakening them.)

In England, there are no pins or rings in Freemasonry. It is much more secretive. The three craft degrees and Royal Arch are the whole of the Masonic system. The higher degrees are looked down on in England. Popular degrees are: Mark Mason, Knights Templar, and Rose Croix. Many royalty in England are Masons. In England you have to physically work through each degree. It takes 7 to 10 years to become a Worshipful Master.

The blood oaths were removed form the first three degrees in 1986. “Jao Bul On” was removed from the Grand Lodge in 1989. Australia has switched to an “Americanized” Masonry. He also mentions that there is a great conflict building in Masonry, caused in a large part” by the exposure of (alleged) cultic secrets.

In Germany, Freemasonry is mostly American in nature. Africa varies, Egypt is heavy on occultism, Moslem nations have no branches for women. Canada was originally under Massachusetts (U.S.) jurisdiction. The oldest lodge in the United Sates was started in 1760 at Prentice House, Massachusetts.

In Larry Kunk’s “The Secret Doctrine,” he describes how rituals are followed and changed. The third degree ritual, Master Mason and its significance are described. He shows how Masonry has a secret doctrine and how this doctrine connects to the Grand Lodges.

The lost word in Freemasonry is found during initiation. “Masons who embrace the secret doctrine attain conscious union with the spirit of Antichrist.” (Page 153) “The Builders” written by Joseph Fort Newton in 1914 is often given to new Master Masons today. In a chapter called “Secret Doctrine” he extols the teaching of Edward Waite (A Mason). Waite wrote books titled: “Devil Worship in France,” “The Book of Black Magic,” and “The Way of Divine Union.” “The Book of Black Magic” has detailed instructions for conjuring up Lucifer.

In “The Great Teachings of Masonry” H. L. Haywood wrote, “The Fraternity itself exists in order to keep fixed on a man a certain set of influences, and in order to bring about certain changes in the world…” (page 156) (Author’s note: this sounds very similar to many cults’ doctrines, instead of encouraging individuality, conformity is strengthened by threats. Also, cult doctrine may be used in an attempt to change the world.)

“Freemasonry: The Witchcraft Connection” by Willian Schnoebelen (author of “Masonry: Beyond the Light” reviewed in S.M.A.R.T. Issue #5), discusses the fact that he was a 32nd degree Mason, Shriner and Wiccan high priest.

He alleges that Masonic rituals are witchcraft. Witchcraft is “broadly defined as a mystery religion based on the ancient fertility cults of pre-Christian Europe.” (Page 163) Witchcraft includes the extolling of the forces of reproduction and the use of tools representing reproduction. Religions are religions where are introduced by degrees and are kept secret from the “profane.” “Magic” is when something changes without a visible or tangible cause. Some witches only worship gods or goddesses and don’t work magic. “Pagans” believe there is a god force in everything.

He believes that Wicca is a lot like Freemasonry because its two principal founders (Aleister Crowley and Gerald B. Gardner) were both Masons. Freemasonry and Wicca have in common: degrees’ secret memberships, ceremonial initiations, purifications of ritual space, candidates remove secular clothing and lose all metal, have blindfolds and ropes, stand in some of the same positions during initiation, chest piercing with sharp objects, secret passwords, candidates are led during ritual, oaths are sworn, degrees have tools with uses, have ritual death and rebirth experiences, and candidates are spun or jostled to create altered states of mind.

Schnoebelen presents a list of occultists and witches that were also Freemasons. They are: Arthur Waite, Dr. Wynn Wescott (Golden Dawn), S.L. MacGregor Mathers (Golden Dawn), Aleister Crowley, Dr. Gerard Encauss, Dr. Theodor Reuss (O.T.O.), George Pickingill, Annie Besant, Alice Bailey, Bishop Charles W. Ledbetter, Manly P. Hall, Gerald B. Gardner and Alex Sanders.

He alleges that a lot of free flawing cash is somewhere up high in the ranks of Freemasonry. He believes the “G” in the Masonic symbol represents sexual potency. In ‘Masonic Roots: Christ, Solomon, or Baal?”, Keith Harris discusses Masonry’s philosophical roots. Masonry claims its roots predate the Solomonic period. To Masons, Nimrod is also considered a founder of Freemasonry. Nimrod was considered rebellious in the Bible and built the Tower of Babel.

Masons have also looked towards Egypt and the mystery religions. The ritual of the third degree of Masonry is similar to the story of Osiris, considered “lord of the Underworld.” He describes this ritual (the 3rd degree) and its symbolism. “Thus, in the Third Degree of Masonry, the initiate is actually entering the death, burial, and resurrection of Osiris.” (Page 183) The all seeing eye is a reverence for the sun and “his” or Osiris. In David Carrico’s (author of “The Egyptian Masonic Satanic Connection” reviewed in S.M.A.R.T. Issue #1) “Freemasonry and the Twentieth Century Occult Revival” describes how many Freemasons allegedly have aligned themselves with the occult and have participated in occult activities. Anton Levey (Church of Satan) “(alleges) that “Masonic orders have contained the most influential men in many governments, and virtually every occult order has many Masonic roots.” (Page 190)

John Robinson, in his “Proofs of a Conspiracy” (1798) alleges that Masonry served as a nursery school for the Illuminati. Their goal was to overturn all civil government. He shows how Madame Blavatsky (an occultist) and her philosophies were connected to Masonry and were liked by both Adolf Hitler and Manly P. Hall (33rd degree Mason). Annie Besant, C. W. Leadbeater (both Masons or co-Masons) were leaders of the Theosophical Society. Leadbeater may have been a pedophile and describes demon spirits he received in various degrees of Freemasonry.

Alice Bailey claimed Masonry is a training school for occultists. Her husband was 32nd degree Mason Foster Bailey.

Aleister Crowley was a 33rd degree Mason. Two of his wives went insane, and his son allegedly died during a ritual they both performed alone. He called himself the “Beast 666”. Members of other occult orders can work within Masonry with a lodge leader’s knowledge. Crowley was in the O.T.O. (which he called ‘true Freemasonry’). O.T.O. teaches sexual magic.

To be a Rosicrucian, you needed to be at least a Master Mason. This society gave birth to the Golden Dawn. In the Golden Dawn, ritual magic is practiced. The Golden Dawn was often closely connected to the O.T.O.

S. L. MacGregor Mathers helped found the Golden Dawn and was a Master Mason. He wrote books on magical spells and the occult. Arthur Waite was a member of both the Golden Dawn and Freemasonry. He wrote several books on Black Magic and Devil Worship. The original Golden Dawn used a Masonic hall for its rituals. They claim to have worked with evil spirits and pentagrams and Anton LaVey (church of Satan) credits the Golden Dawn for his satanic invocations.

Gerald Gardner and Alex Sanders were both witches and Freemasons. Gardner was thought of as a sadomasochist and Sanders founded a school of witchcraft which used sexual intercourse in its initiation rituals. Sanders was allegedly abused by his grand mother.

Eliphas Levi was a Master Mason and believed for the most part that the Templars were diabolists. He passed much of his doctrine onto Albert Pike (a highly influential Mason of the lath century). Pike took several quotes from Levi’s books. Levi believed that Satan is part of God.

The last chapter by Ed Decker discusses the Southern Baptists’ Convention and discussion on Freemasonry and its findings.

I believe this book is an excellent source of information about Freemasonry. However, ritual abuse in direct connection to Freemasonry is not discussed. Some S.M.A.R.T. readers may have trouble with the fact that this book is Christian in nature. I personally had a lot of trouble with the chapter “The Public School Connection” (I am a school teacher).

A free flow of information is crucial to avoid what is called “milieu control” one of Robert J. Lifton’s eight criteria of mind control (my source for the 8 criteria is “Combatting Cult Mind Control” by Steven Hassan (Park Street Press, Rochester, VT.)). Many modern educational reforms are promoting the development of critical thinking skills, crucial to the promotion of democracy and the elimination of cults.

Of course, it is also important to teach children how to tell the difference between right and wrong. And in a free nation, it is up to the children to make the final decision. The type of decision depends on their age, intellectual level and their ability to realize the consequences of their actions.

Newspaper Article
The information for the following article is from an AP article (Concord, NH). I found it on page 10 of the Daily Hampshire Gazette, published in Northampton, Ma. , 12/20/95.

The title of the article is “Masons hope crimes don’t overshadow charitable work.” The article starts with “officials of the Masons are concerned that embezzlements, a murder and the arrest of a Mason’s wife as a suspect are overshadowing the charitable work of the fraternal organization.” A Mason is quoted in the article as saying that people may get the “wrong impression” from this, large organizations can have a “bad apple.”

….. an employee of the Masons and .. wife were convicted of embezzling money … a Mason was convicted of stealing more money…. (a) long time Mason was found stabbed to death in his burning home… (the dead Mason) and others had been threatened after they discovered the possible threat of more money.. one’s home was hit with a Molotov cocktail.”

The article states that the Masons do not recruit members, isn’t a “visible service group” and doesn’t publicize a lot of its charitable work. People are “enticed” by personal curiosity to find out about the Masons. (My note: Cults often use an individual’s curiosity to help recruit them.)

The article also states: “the prime purpose of masonry “is to improve the individual man….” Masonic organizations aren’t allowed to support political candidates “and have no religious affiliation.” The Masons were founded in 1717 in England and now have 3 million members nationwide. (U.S.)

As many readers know, a lot of the information in this article (some of the parts about the Mason’s organization itself) is not true. There is no information about the Masons and ritual abuse or their political influence. Much of the article comes from Masonic sources. Perhaps some of our readers could write the Associated Press and let them know what they think.

S.M.A.R.T. is looking for other articles on the Masons. Feel free to send them in or write your own article about them.

Book Review
The following book review was sent in by Sarah, a subscriber of our newsletter. The opinions mentioned in this article are solely those of the contributor and not necessarily those of S.M.A.R.T. or any other contributors or listed organizations. Please use caution while reading this article. It may be triggering.
Secret and Suppressed: Banned Ideas and Hidden History, edited by Jim Keith, 1993 Feral House, $12.95

In his preface to Secret and Suppressed, Jim Keith states that “the people who direct and control the world’s financial resources are, to a very large extent, the same people who control and direct the world’s media.” Secret and Suppressed is a guidebook to alternative views of contemporary events and world history… (which) confronts the reader with disquieting revelations on mind control, secret societies, media disinformation, cults and elite cabals. The hard evidence supplied by many of the articles is startling.”

About half of the articles in this anthology expose Masonic activity, how it has shaped society in the past and its influence in our lives today.

In his article “Sorcery, Sex, Assassination and the Science of Political Control,” James Shelby Downard writes, “For years I have been trying to draw attention to Masonic sorcery and its (alleged) relation to political control.” He states that “Benjamin ….. was initiated into Freemasonry at St. John’s Lodge in Philadelphia and … is credited with publishing the first Masonic book in America.”

He identifies the “House of the Rising Sun,” a Masonic meeting place for powerful political figures such as Benjamin Franklin, George Washington and George Mason, located in Fredericksburg, Virginia, which has the earliest known record of the Masonic Royal Arch Degree of York, listed in the city annals on December 22, 1753. He discusses the roots of the anti-mason political party that challenged Freemason Andrew Jackson for the presidency in 1826, and the murder of the Mormon prophet which resulted in the men of the Mormon church withdrawing from Freemasonry. (S.M.A.R.T. note: For more information on the Mormons and their connection to the Masons, see Issue #6)

He delves deeply into the JFK assassination which he believes is suffused with Masonic symbolism having to do with violence, perversion, conspiracy, death and degradation (specifically, Masonic Greening Rituals). “Masonry does not (allegedly) believe in murdering a man in just any old way and in the JFK assassination, it went to incredible lengths and took great risks to make this heinous act correspond to the ancient fertility oblation of The Killing of the King.”

He identifies the three hoboes arrested at the time of the assassination as “at least as important symbolically as operationally, and they compromise the ‘three unworthy craftsmen’ of Masonry… and a mirror or doppelganger of the three assassins who executed the actual murder.” He notes that Dealy Plaza is the site of the First Masonic Temple in Dallas and home of the Blue Front Tavern, a Masonic hangout, and that important security strategy was planned for Dealy Plaza by the New Orleans CIA station which was headquartered in a Masonic temple building.

He points out that Mason Lyndon Johnson appointed Mason Earl Warren to investigate the death of Catholic President John Kennedy; 33rd degree Mason Gerald Ford was instrumental in suppressing what little evidence of a conspiratorial nature reached the Commission; 33rd degree Mason J. Edgar Hoover was responsible for supplying information to the commission; and former CIA Director and 33rd degree Mason Allen Dulles was responsible for most of his agency’s data to the panel. And he asks, “Would it be paranoid to suspect a panel of Nazis appointed to investigate the death of a Jew, or to suspect a commission of Klansmen appointed to investigate the death of a Negro?”

In his article “Subliminal Images in Oliver Stone’s ‘JFK’ ” which follows, Dean Grace identifies Downard’s Three Craftsmen; “A man in a dark suit passes three hoboes being taken into custody by police. There is a hint that the hoboes give a secret hand sign.. later.. .A man in a dark suit passes by the three tramps and gives a secret hand sign for the tramps’ benefit. “Also (while) patrolman Smith is testifying on the witness stand… a tall young man wearing a dark suit… turns toward the camera and clearly gives a Masonic sign of distress… holds the palm of the left hand up and crosses it with the right hand pain down.. .at waist level.. twelve inches from the body. This is the sign of distress in the Entered Apprentice, first degree of Masonry.”

In his article “The Masonic Ripper,” Jim Keith notes that elements brought forth by Stephen Knight in Jack the Ripper, the Final Solution suggest that the Ripper slayings may not have been the work of a lone madman but possibly the commission of a plot by extremely influential Freemasons of the day (as Downard suggests re the JFK assassination). The press of the time dubbed the Ripper with the name ‘Leather Apron’ which is the vestment worn by Masons during ritual ceremonies. A message scrawled in chalk near pieces of clothing of one of the victims – “The Juwes are the men that will be blames for nothing” – refers in Masonic lore to the three apprentice Masons who killed master builder Hiram.

“The five murders attributed to Jack the Ripper were accomplished by left-to-right strokes across the victims ….. . A triangle flap of skin had been reflected from each …. . Two triangles comprise the sacred sign of Ma…… the stomach and abdomen were ripped open, the heart cut out.” These ritual desecrations conform to the descriptions of the penalties for betraying the vow of secrecy taken by Masons during initiation.

Knight suggests that the reason for the Ripper murders was allegedly to silence the women who threatened to betray the throne by revealing the secret marriage of Prince Eddy to a Roman Catholic, then a despised minority, and the birth of a royal child.

“Secrets from the Vatican Library,” submitted by an anonymous member of the Franciscan order, describes a “secret history of Western civilization gleaned from documents in the Vatican library,” specifically the “protracted struggle between several ‘elite’ factions… for supremacy from the days following the fall of the Roman empire to the present,” between northern and southern Europe especially. He describes the founding of the Order of the Knights Hospitallers and the founding of the Order of the Knights Templar, details of cult politics, wars, rituals and scapegoats, and the alleged takeover of the Vatican by the Royal Arch Masons.

Because he promotes a religious ideology and sect in his interpretation of his data and his conclusions, I am less trusting of the integrity and motives in his article. One item, however, does seem validated by my previous reading of the Founding Fathers. “The Freemasons… jealous lower-echelon members of the northern clique united in Masonic lodges… saw in the new land (America) an opportunity to set themselves up as a faction in their own right.”

This is a fascinating, thought provoking and informative book. If your local bookstore can’t obtain it, call or write Feral House, Box 3466, Portland, OR 97208.

Satanic Ritual Abuse and Secret Societies is an 88 minute video tape researched by David Carrico (Followers of Jesus Christ). The existence of Satanic Ritual Abuse and Masonic Ritual Abuse are fully supported by facts, dates and court convictions. The video is Christian based with selections from the Bible. S.M.A.R.T. has decided to sell this unique video. S.M.A.R.T. is non-sectarian and has no religious affiliation. We highly recommend this video. The information in this video is invaluable in the fight against ritual abuse, the Masons and their ritual abuse and the backlash against the incest movement. It is very well researched and well done. To order, write SMART. (Please note: this tape is no longer available.)
