I haven’t done much history on my blog for some unknown reason. I’m a self proclaimed history buff and have studied both American and European history extensively. But I must admit that all of what I studied is the accepted mainstream version, it doesn’t have any of the hidden truths necessary to dispel blatant falsehoods.
Take for example the myth the Founding Fathers founded the United States as a Christian nation. I know this has been on various liberal blogs and others, but this is a truth that needs more exposure. Here are the examples:
- George Washington was a Freemason. His title in his lodge was Worshipful Master when he was inaugurated as first President of the United States. Federal buildings that were starting construction at that time had their cornerstones laid with Freemason ceremonies. The idea of equal brotherhood is a central tenant of the Freemasons, a idea that was anathema to European Royalty. The Freemason oath mentions a “Creator”, but does not name the creator as “God”. (Documented History of Washington’s Masonic Life)
- Benjamin Franklin – From Archiving Early America: “Although Franklin received religious training, his nature forced him to rebel against the irrational tenets of his parents Christianity. His Autobiography revels his skepticism, “My parents had given me betimes religions impressions, and I received from my infancy a pious education in the principles of Calvinism. But scarcely was I arrived at fifteen years of age, when, after having doubted in turn of different tenets, according as I found them combated in the different books that I read, I began to doubt of Revelation itself.”
- James Madison –
“During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What have been its fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution.” “What influence, in fact, have ecclesiastical establishments had on society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the civil authority; on many instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny; in no instance have they been the guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who wish to subvert the public liberty may have found an established clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate it, needs them not.”
- Thomas Jefferson from his letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802 concerning the U.S. Constitution: “I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between church and State.”
Do not believe the spin from the Corporate Media and the so-called “Religious Right” when it comes to the Founding Fathers and Christianity or any other religion. They wanted to spare us from the religious wars that plagued Europe and Asia for thousands of years. Now we have people who proclaim in the name of “God” and “Jesus Christ” that we must preemptively make war on the Muslim world because if we don’t, they will create a world-wide caliphate and destroy the Christian Western world.
This is the pablum fed to the U.S. public right now and unfortunately, the masses are eating it.
And to all my fellow tinfoilers, I know the Freemasons are tied to the Illuminati, Lucifer, NWO and other one world government conspiracies. I just wanted to dispel the myths surrounding the Founding of the United States and Christianity. The initial settlement of the North American continent is another matter I’ll take up later.
