I have actually seen a few Catholics come out this week in defense of Freemasonry. Are they young? Are they ignorant? Or are they just "Too Long; Didn't Read" types, possessing an IQ of 90, and who cannot stand to even read halfway through a paragraph. Honestly, I'm inclined to think the latter.
In any event, just to name a few sources for the beginner, Pope Leo XIII spoke out against Freemasonry in Humanum Genus. On November 26, 1983, The Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith reiterated the Church's penalty of excommunication for any Catholic who dares to join the side of Freemasonry. On his website, John Salza has a direct link to a discussion about the evils of Freemasonry. Even the Mother of Christ, herself, warned us quite specifically about Freemasonry when she came to us as Our Lady of Good Success.
Most Americans think of Freemasons as harmless old Shriners with their funny hats and their charity hospitals. They have no clue about the atrocities unleashed by this sect in Portugal or Ecuador, to only begin to name a few. There are even particular prayers of exorcism to lift multi-generational curses that are caused by Freemasonry.
Freemasonry's aim has always been the interior deterioration of the Catholic Church, as was touched upon in my previous blog post. But that won't stop the Pope Francis Club. He's humble, by the way. Indeed, they will open their arms to just about everybody--Protestants, Muslims, Buddhists, and now apparently Freemasons. Indeed, the author of The Year of Mercy is merciful to just about everyone--especially journalists. But he is definitely NOT merciful to Traditional Catholics. Everyone gets to go to Heaven under the watch of Pope Francis except practicing Traditional Catholics. Traditional Catholics get to go to Hell.
And with that, let us reflect on just how wonderfully merciful this papacy is to everyone--except Traditionalists--as we read about how Cardinal Ravasi is calling for open dialogue with his "Dear Brother Masons."
Irreverent Catholics, Gays, adulterous divorcees, Protestants, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Freemasons = Heaven
Traditional Catholics still trying to hold onto the Mass of the Ages = Toxic Trads go to Hell
