    never heard that one before.

    Her rant seemed to have been something along the lines of--the (holy) founding fathers couldn't have possibly have been masons--because that would negate their holy status.

    This is what revisionist history gets you, especially when it's pushed from pseudocollege-papermills spreading hate and discontent disguised as a religious education.

    Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).

      was active in the 1830's. I think I've seen some paranoid TV shows about the Masons, on a par with the 'Aliens built the Pyramids' nonsense on cable TV.

      Don't spend more than a few hours down that Google rabbit hole. It gets stranger and stranger....

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

      Masonic conspiracy theories are conspiracy theories involving Freemasonry; hundreds of such conspiracy theories have been described since the late 18th century. --Wikipedia
      YouTube is chock full of videos explaining that, while the Masons may be a benign social group for the most part, at its uppermost level are a small group of people intent on taking over the world (mwa-ha-ha!) and destroying Christianity while they're at it.

      As I heard her, the stenographer was saying that the US is not a "nation under God" because the Constitution was written by those 33rd-degree Freemasons

      •  As I commented below (7+ / 0-)

        my husband's a 33rd-degree mason.

        I just didn't know he was planning on taking over the world.

        I'll need new shoes.

          communities. I have relatives in the Masons, and so far, they have failed to take over the government, summon aliens and the devil and have refrained from eating babies in my presence.

          As for my original comment--with regards to other replies--nothing out of the loop about that. Even conspiracy theories evolve over time.

          Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
