The Freemason Conspiracy
What's Your View?
We occasionally receive comments through our 'Contact Us' page regarding the Freemason Conspiracy, or Masonic Lodge Secrets and our secret Masonic rituals. We enjoy them and thought you might too. Below are some of the comments we have received. Feel free to join the discussion on the Freemason Conspiracy or anything else regarding Freemasonry by using the form at the bottom of the page.
These comments are moderated for language and hate-speak. Libelous accusations will not be allowed, but pretty much anything else goes. Of course, if you're into that sort of thing I don't expect you to believe me.
Message: Does Freemasonry involve a blood sacrifice, as in providing a loved one or member of your family, in order to proceed or in any other way?
Thank you for your question, and for visiting Masonsmart.com.
Freemasonry and membership in the Masonic fraternity does not involve any sort of blood sacrifice. The sacrifices we make, although we do not consider them to be sacrifices, are of our time and money. We spend time away from our loved ones and family members that we may labor for the good of our community and mankind. We contribute money to worthy causes and spend money to cover the expenses of our endeavors in Masonry.
Freemasonry is a fraternal brotherhood whose goals include teaching the ways of living honorably and with dignity, as well as being held responsible when one behaves in a dishonorable or undignified manner. It is not a secret society with some mystical and magical knowledge. It is not a means to become wealthy or otherwise improve one's station in life. It is a set of moral teachings and a lifestyle choice. It is a means of uncovering the greater secrets that lie within each of us. It is a philosophical and speculative way of living one's life.
I hope this information is helpful to you, and again I thank you for your question.
Message: Dear Sir; My Grandfather was a high level Freemason. Since then all members of my family ,and my uncle's family, have demonstrated demonic posession. I was the only one spared. The generational curse is true. Renounce lucifer and accept Jesus if you love your children. Nothing you will ever do will be more important than this.

Message: "Brother Tim,
What a wonderful find this site has been. You have answered the questions put to you in a compassionate and precise manner. You are a credit to the order and I hope to be a regular visitor to your site."
Dear Brother Alexander,
Thank you most sincerely for your kind comments. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your visit to Masonsmart and please do come back often. I have several improvements planned for the site and hope it will continue to grow and be of purposeful use.
I have enjoyed your posts on the Masonic Network site. It is encouraging to know there are such fine young men as yourself who take the teachings and tenets of Freemasonry to heart.
I look forward to many years of fraternal communications.
Cordially and Fraternally yours,
Message: "I don't really know much of anything about the Freemasons, only of a few conspiracy beliefs that my teacher talked over in class one day. I am in high school at (name of school and city removed for privacy).
Something that interests me since our class discussion, is that my teacher said one conspiracy theory was that if a Freemason were to disclose and reveal the secrets of Freemasonry that he would come to a weird end. Like how one man was trampled to death by ten horses in the same week that he had revealed the secrets of the Freemasons.
I was kind of wondering if this was in any way true, in an altered way or not.
Also, do you have any idea why the Denver airport was painted white?? Only to blend in with the snow?
Thank you for your very interesting question.
There is certainly no shortage of conspiracy theories surrounding the Freemasons. This is partly because of our long history, partly because it is nearly impossible to prove a negative, and partly because we actually do have secrets.
The origins of Freemasonry are lost in time. We know that modern day Freemasonry began with the founding of the United Grand Lodge of England in 1717 because records have been kept since that time. There are many clues and indications that an organization of masons existed long before that time, and our traditions reach back to the earliest of days. With such a long and yet uncertain history it follows that conspiracy theories will naturally spring up along the way. Conspiracy theorists have been making a pretty good living telling our secrets for thousands of years. Most of them die of natural causes.
To answer your question regarding a Freemason disclosing Masonic secrets is a little more complicated. As a Freemason I took upon myself certain obligations. One of which was that I would not, in any way, disclose any of the secrets that may be imparted to me. These secrets come in two flavors. There are Masonic secrets and then there are those secrets that my Brother Master Masons may choose to share with me. I promised that I would not disclose either. Naturally, as a man of honor, if a friend and Brother entrusts me with a secret I am going to keep it, provided it does not involve murder or treason. But, let's look at the Masonic secrets.
All the Masonic secrets have been published, publically portrayed, and discussed for centuries. They're all out there and easily found. I could, if I chose to, tell you where to find them. But, I will not tell you what they are because I solemnly promised that I would never do that. And yes, the obligations that I took do involve certain penalties should I break my promises. Some of the penalties are quite gruesome. But, I don't keep my promises out of fear of these penalties; I keep my promises because that's what an honorable man does.
Freemasonry uses allegory and symbols to teach and impress. The penalties of our obligations are designed to impress upon us the sincerity of our obligations, not to instill fear. So no, if a Freemason were to disclose Masonic secrets the fraternity would not conspire to bring about his untimely end. However, a conspiracy theorist might kill him and blame it on the fraternity. Just kidding.
Now, I should probably take this explanation one step further. You'll note that I said "the 'fraternity' would not conspire to bring about his untimely end." Every organization has its zealots. No doubt there have been men in the fraternity who believed the penalties were to be taken literally. Were there men in the past who were punished for dishonoring their obligations? Quite possibly. Is it possible that were a modern day Freemason to violate his oaths he might find himself in regretable circumstances? Perhaps. But in neither case would it be sanctioned by the Masonic fraternity or by Masonic teachings. It would be misguided men behaving badly under the guise of fraternal retribution. Men who wish to do harm can generally find a reason. The Masonic fraternity is made up almost entirely of honorable, trustworthy and gentle men, but we are men and men make mistakes.
In short, there is no definitive proof of any man ever coming to a weird end for divulging the secrets of Freemasonry, and there never will be.
I don't know why the Denver airport was painted white. Let's see, white is the color of light and Freemasonry is all about the search for more Light. You might be on to something there. I'll look into it and let you know if I discover anything interesting. Thanks again for your question.
Message: I am not adept in the traditions of the Freemasons. However, I have read from your site and also had discussions with a few men in a local lodge here in Vermont. In my opinion, what our Country needs is another Freemason for more political offices in VT as well as a majority of other States that have forgotten what the Constitution, Federalist Papers, and even Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" meant when they were written. I just wanted to find out what the Freemasons political view is.
Thank you for your comment and for spending some time at Masonsmart.com.
As you probably know, Freemasons do not discuss politics or religion in Lodge. The Masonic Lodge is intended to be a place of peace and harmony, and these are two of the three most divisive topics known to man. However, outside the Lodge many Freemasons are politically involved.
I can not offer you the political view of Freemasons. The fraternity is made up of men from all walks of life, men of every race, creed and origin. Our political views, like our religious views, are personal to the individual. And, while we are free to follow our own beliefs and convictions we are not free to insist, nor even expect, that another should share those beliefs and convictions.
I can, however, offer my personal views. Freemasonry teaches freedom from tyranny, selfless service to mankind, and honor above all. I agree that what our Country needs, indeed what mankind needs, is men and women who hold themselves up to such ideals. A person does not need to belong to the Masonic fraternity, nor any other group, to live a life of honor, nobility and service. The benefit of belonging is twofold: as a group, the good that such men can do is multiplied many times over, and again, as a human being susceptible to the temptations and frailties of such he is surrounded by others who will both assist him and hold him responsible.
I think our Country began to veer from the track when politics became a career choice. George Washington was a great man, not because he was a Freemason, but because at a time when he could have been King of America he instead refused the honors and retired from politics. Our Country was envisioned, founded and built by such men who recognized that the ultimate use of power is in service, men who looked beyond themselves and understood that promoting security for all is more important than securing comforts for a few, men who accepted that the struggle is not for today but for the future.
I believe we have many such men in this Country and throughout the world. I have the privilege of knowing a few. Because I know such men I have hope for the future, for men of reason will always choose freedom which, with the tenacity of nature, will never surrender.
It worries me that our Constitution, and especially our Bill of Rights, is no longer taught in our public schools. "The Federalist," is certainly a worthy endeavor for anyone wanting to understand the philosophy and motivation of our founding fathers. And, Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" should be read by all Americans, as it is just as pertinent today as it was in 1776. Thomas Paine said, "These are the times that try men's souls." I respectfully submit that they still are.
Cordially and fraternally,
Message: "No Royal Arch Mason can pronounce the sacred name by himself. What is represented as the god of Masonry is a three-headed monster so remote from the Christian Trinity and so blasphemous as to damn the soul of anyone who would dare to pronounce its name in a ritual of worship. But I tell you this-there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. I tell you, my so called friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him!"
Message: "I would like to join but do not know anyone who is a Freemason. I live in a small town and there is a lodge nearby. Do I go there and ask someone? Thanks, hope you get back to me."
Thank you very much for your question. Basically, the answer is yes. Since you don't know anyone who is a Mason you will need to get to know someone, and the quickest and best way to do that is with a handshake.
I live in the United States so my answer is based on my knowledge of how things are done here. If you are in another part of the world the process may be different, but the goal will remain the same.
If the Lodge in your area is listed in the telephone directory, give them a call and let them know you are interested in becoming a Mason. In some small towns, though, the lodge doesn't always have a telephone. In that case, just stop by when you see someone at the lodge building and introduce yourself. Or, if you can't seem to catch anyone there leave a note asking them to give you a call. If you do leave a note and don't hear from them right away please don't assume it has anything to do with you. Most Lodges in America only meet once a month; other groups may use the same building and your note could have been mislaid or lost; there could be any number of reasons that they might not respond. Just keep trying until you speak to someone in person.
They will arrange to meet with you and answer any questions you may have. They will also want to get to know a little about you. This is just an informal 'get acquainted' meeting. When you feel certain that Masonry is right for you ask them for a petition to join. There is no rush and there is no deadline. Take your time to get to know them and let them get to know you. Your petition for membership will require two Masons to vouch for you in writing so they will need to know you well enough to be comfortable doing that.
Once your petition has been signed, presented and approved the process of membership begins and you just kick back and enjoy the ride. I hope this is helpful to you. If I can be of any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me again.
p.s. As I said, if you are not in the U.S. this process could be considerably different but still, the first step will be to make contact with a Brother and he will be able to help.
Message: "I have just finished trawling through the text on your page and was wondering if you might have the common brotherly decency to answer a question, as neither the United Grand Lodge or the Provincial Grand Lodge are willing to even acknowledge my message.
Since becoming a master mason and a member of a number of other lodge crafts, my life has been decimated by a man who has held the honoured position of Worshipful Master within the lodge from which I was outcast on his word. He has lied, cheated and schemed, breaking every law that masons supposedly hold sacred and now through his action I stand a broken man, a mere shell of the person I once was. Disgraced, dishonoured and alone. My family destroyed, my career prospects in tatters and my name now held in the lowest levels of contempt.
Is this the common practices of the order and more than that, is it typically the standing of the masonic order to turn their backs on the cries and pleas for help from a fellow mason?"
Thank you for contacting me and I am very sorry to hear of your distressing circumstances.
As I have no direct knowledge of your situation I can not advise you on a specific course of action. I can, however, say this; the behavior as you describe it is most emphatically not proper behavior for a Freemason. Such actions would be in direct violation of the obligation we take upon ourselves as Master Masons, and a man as would behave in such a manner could not long maintain a facade of worthiness and honor among worthy and honorable men.
As to any recourse you may have, I can only advise that the Masonic fraternity has laws and rules at your disposal should you choose to take action. I would urge you to study the Constitution and by-laws of your lodge and of your Grand Lodge. Seek out the counsel of those you trust. There are mechanisms in place by which you may make your complaint known and recognized.
It is certainly not the practice of the order to ignore a plea from a worthy brother Master Mason. In fact, the direct opposite is true. Prior to being raised as a Master Mason we promise to help, aid and assist all distressed worthy brother Master Masons. I am very sorry for your pain and loss. I can only hope that whatever has transpired in what sounds like a complicated situation can somehow be repaired and healed.
In closing let me add this: one of the most difficult lessons I have learned in my Masonic education is that while I consider the teachings of Freemasonry to be theoretically perfect, man is inherently imperfect. While we would all like to believe that every member of the fraternity possesses a character of pure sterling it simply is not the case. While most members are good and honorable men, and while the fraternity endeavors to admit only men of high quality and character, even those are subject to human frailties.
I sincerely hope that you may find that for which you seek, whether it be peace or justice. And, may the troubles of your life grow lighter with each forward step you take.
Message: "My Father just died last Sunday. My Mother is a Jehovah Witness and is offend that my Father wanted a Mason service. Our Uncle is making a large deal out of this issue causing much pain , can he do this without our consent or at least without my Mothers? Also there is words going around that the Masons say Gods name is Jehovah,is this true? I am neither a Mason or Jehovah Witness. right now I am jut hurting."
Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss and my hope that your pain will soon ease.
The Masonic funeral service is intended to bring a measure of comfort to the family and loved ones of the Brother who has passed on. It is in no way meant to cause family strife or increase the suffering of those left behind. Your Uncle should not and can not insist on a Masonic service. To do so would be an un-Masonic act. I'm sure he is hurting as well and wants to follow the last wishes of your Father. However, the decision is not his to make. The decision rests with your Mother and her reasons are her own. The funeral director should be able to help with the situation.
As to the name of God, Freemasonry requires that I express a belief in a supreme being, a power greater than myself. By what name I call that supreme being is a personal matter. Even further, my beliefs, opinions, and relationship with that supreme being are personal. Freemasonry is not a religion, although it is interwoven with our individually chosen religion. So no, Freemasonry does not teach that the name of God is Jehovah. God is called by many names but in Freemasonry we refer to God as the Great Architect of the Universe.
I hope I have been of some help. If I can be of any further assistance please don't hesitate to call on me. I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers during this sad and trying time.
Message: "I have always been interested in knowing more about the Freemason organization. How can i join?"
Thank you for visiting and contacting us here at Masonsmart.com.
I am located in the United States and the process of membership here can be somewhat different than in other parts of the world. However, the process is basically the same the world over. The first step is to contact a Freemason. This can be as easy as picking up the local telephone directory, or it can be quite difficult. In some parts of the world Freemasons are still, out of necessity, very secretive. Those in power, both politically and religiously, are uneasy with Freemasonry's teachings of universal brotherhood and unbridled freedom. Confused societal opinions sometimes dictate that Freemasons meet and act discreetly. I do not know the situation in your locality, or even in your country. But, as I say, the first step will be to contact a Brother.
Once you have made contact he will want to get to know you. In my experience, in order for you to become a Freemason two members of the Order will have to recommend you for membership. So, you will have to spend some time with them. Get to know them, and allow them to get to know you. In order for them to be comfortable in recommending you for membership they must know that you are a man of honor, decency, and morality. One thing you should know up front: no atheist can be made a Freemason. This point is universal the world over. You must believe in and confess your belief in a supreme being. However, your idea of this being and how you relate to him is a personal matter and of no bearing in Freemasonry.
Once you have made contact, gotten to know some of the Brethren, and they have come to know you as an honorable man you will officially petition a Lodge for membership. From this point on the process of membership is underway and there is really nothing more for you to do but wait while the process runs its course. Generally, an investigating committee from the Lodge will contact you and they will want to meet with you and get to know you, as well. This is a time for you and those close to you to ask further questions regarding the Order and what you may expect and what may be expected of you. If possible, your family and loved ones should be involved in the decision. Freemasonry is not intended to interfere with family. The committee will report on their investigation and, if favorable, the Lodge will vote on your petition for membership. Assuming the vote is also favorable your 1st Degree can then be scheduled.
This is not an easy process, nor one that should be taken lightly. When you become a Freemason you make certain promises and place yourself under certain obligations that will continue for the rest of your life. Rest assured, however, that these promises and obligations are nothing to which any good man would dissent.
I hope this information is useful to you and that I have not painted an overwhelming vision of the process of becoming a Freemason. In most parts of the world it is a relatively simple and painless process. Joining the Freemasons was without a doubt the best decision I have ever made for myself, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to any good man who desires to be of service to his fellow man.
If I can be of any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me again.
Message: "Was Walt Disney a Freemason?"
thank you for your question.
As much as many of us would like to claim Walt Disney as a member of the Craft, there simply are no definitive records to show that he ever joined Freemasonry. He was, however, a member of the original Mother Chapter of the Order of DeMolay in Kansas City, Missouri. DeMolay is a youth organization for young men sponsored by the Freemasons.
I think it's pretty safe to say that if Walt Disney had joined a Masonic Lodge that lodge would be sure to let us all know that he was a member there. Of course, Lodges fail and records are lost but if Walt Disney had been a 33rd Degree Mason, as many anti-Masons have claimed, there would definitely be a record of that.
So the answer, unfortunately, is that while Walt Disney was associated with the Masonic fraternity as a boy he never went on to join a Masonic Lodge as a man.

"listen with your eyes stop the plossible deniabiltity! free masonry was based on 33 principles discussed in the bible over and over again. The time is near and freemasons will know when the one they call is upon him and he will pass every test from every freemason. The stage is almost set and all freemasons will choose the direction in wich they want there '33 degrees' to go. No man is damned by the 33 dergrees unless he executes all perfectly. Most people that are not bound to freemasonry get a choice betwwen a god and anti christ. A dedicated freemason will only be able to recognize the falsehood of the evil one and run if he is lucky enough but will not recognize god unless he changes his values. I understand all these tests of the 33 degree perfection seems to sort good from evil, but it only sorts knowledge from faith. The dragon/beast/goat freemasons seek will be there god indeed. False prophesy and the awe of coincedence was hand in hand. this is not only for freemasons it is for all the secret societies using the 33 degrees to hell such as skull and bones, bohemien club, illuminate and ferthermore."

"Hi, Why do you and other Masons who claim to reveal the truths of freemasonry, never mention: You originated from the Knights Templar? The templars found the holy grail, which was not a chalice, but an object with all the secrets to the universe and it's now in the possession of freemasons? You worship a 3 headed creature called Jabulon and fool lower degree masons into believing it is God? These are the type of questions people want to know, your real secrets, not more lies to hide the truth."
"The word is out.The supposed quest of The Blue Lodge Masons is the search for "the Lost Word".We know your goals,you want to do away with religions and their creeds and doctrines,and to establish a one-world,universal religion free from the confining dogma of such narrow scope as is found in Christianity.But you fools,Masontry,is like all the religions,all the mysteries,hermeticism and alchemy,conceals its secrets from all except the adepts and sages,or the elect,and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of your symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be mislead;to conceal the truth,which it calls light.But no longer are your secrets,secrets they been found out and completely depleted,and destroyed,nothing you do is secret and or hidden,we know so much more information,stop your foolish ways,immedietly,before it is to late,we want the freemasons to stop there ways,but if you dont,we will have no choice but to tell everyone all your supposed secrets,if t housands find out that your against jews,imagine what will happen to your fraternity,imagine.We call ourselves ROOT,that is our code name,please email back if neccessary,we want to end this.*777*TF"
Message: "Is it possible for a homosexual (openly gay) to be a Mason? The reason I ask this question is because I have a coworker who is gay and wants to join the Masons. I am also gay and was told by a mason that I would not be welcome. I would appreciate any information regarding this matter."
The answer to your question is a qualified 'yes'. There is nothing in Masonic law that would preclude a homosexual from becoming a Mason. Unfortunately, there is also nothing in Masonic law that precludes a bigot from becoming a Mason.
Masonic philosophy tells us that our passions, prejudices and interests are to be circumscribed and kept within due bounds. Masonic philosophy is a set of lofty ideals. Unfortunately, we as human beings are often unable to live up to those ideals. Should your co-worker decide to pursue his ambition to become a Mason his obstacle will not be in Masonry, but in common prejudice. In spite of the enlightened teachings and goals of Masonry the Masonic Lodge is still made up of human beings who bring all of their baggage with them.
Your co-worker's petition for membership must first be signed by two members of the Lodge recommending his acceptance. Then, he would meet with a committee who would further recommend in favor of, or against his membership. Assuming the committee found favorably his petition would then be voted on by the membership of the Lodge. It's not an easy process, nor one that should be taken lightly.
It is possible that there is a Lodge in his area where the members have reached a state of enlightenment above petty prejudice. At least, I'd like to believe it's possible. My best advice would be that he contact some of the lodges in his area; get to know some of the members. When they get to know him as a man of integrity and decency there will be a place for him in Masonry. I wish I could say it will be easy, but I can't.
Thank you for your question and I wish you and your co-worker all the best. If I can be of further service please don't hesitate to contact me.
