While Hamilton could have kept membership secret it seems to be totally incompatible with his character to do so. It would be completely in character for a sneak like Jefferson to do that but not Hamilton.

He was forthright to a fault and could have avoided many a constroversy and enemy had he not been so. But he never tried to avoid or run away from a fight.

Though religious he was not a member of any congregation so there would have been no religious reason to hide membership. He was not Catholic which some allege would have prevented membership.

There appears to be no reason for such secrecy.

Perhaps he wasn't a member. If a person did not take the oaths of Masons or attend a lodge, that would not reduce the Masonic characteristics of a person. Perhaps it wasn't necessary for Hamilton to experience something he could have invented. Some tend to place too much emphasis on the outward form of Masonry and never get to the substance.

On the other hand, I know some Masons who have great difficulty with ritual and form but exemplify the ideals and tenets of Freemasonry in their lives to a very high degree.

I suppose the same would hold true for religion(s).

Which goes back to the question: 'Where were you first made a Mason?'

Exactly so, uglybiker. That's why many find that Freeemasonry seems so familiar or second nature to them when they associate. Nothing new to them but the ritual and form -- or even perhaps the discovery of a new migratory path.

Jefferson would not have been permitted to be a Freemason because he was not of good character, nor willing to accept the Holy Bible as the guide to his life... (If looking for an actual Deist, Jefferson would be your man. He even re-wrote the New Testament, stripped of theology.)

Could you source this please. I would be most interested in seeing Mr. J's emendation of the New Testament.

aka The Jefferson Bible.
Please refrain from misrepresenting the Sage of Monticello. He "rewrote" nothing. His intent, sole intent, was to emphasize the goodness of Jesus Christ.

Freemasonry is a religion, and as a movement is a conspiracy dedicated to the destruction of Christianity. It is antithetical to and incompatble with the Christian faith as established in the Church.

However, the average rank-and-file Mason knows nothing of this, has no part in any anti-Christian activity, and uses his local lodge as a source of entertainment and good business contacts, nothing more. Many good and decent people are Masons, and the local lodges do outstanding charity work. (Another example of the Lord turning evil to good ends.)

Attacking Freemasonry on a broad front is counterproductive. The average Mason is going to find any anatagonistic "debunking" of Freemasonry on the basic of its anti-Christian roots and purposes to be laughably at odds with what goes on down at the local Lodge, and will simply ignore anything one has to say on the subject. A better approach is to present your views on Freemasonry in an honest and friendly way, educating Masons on the origins of Freemasonry and the sinister purposes of its founders without getting into esoteric discussions of cosmic significance. By presenting Masons with the facts about the origins of the Masonic cult -- and by supporting your arguments with plenty of unbiased historical evidence -- one may well plant seeds of doubt in he minds of Masons about the movement as a whole. Planting those seeds of doubt is the goal to be achieved; sprouting them and growing them to fruition is the work of the Holy Spirit. Remember, the average Freemason is not a willing participant in a Satanic conspiracy; he is our friend, our father, our brother, and very often our fellow Christian. Treat him as such, not as an enemy whose beliefs have to be defeated.

Audie Murphy won the Congressional Medal of Honor in WW II. Chesty Puller participated at least in WW II (maimed at Guadalcanal when a grenade exploded between his ankles peeling the flesh from his legs but stayed on his feet and continued to command his troops and in Korea I believe was the winning commander at Cochin Reservoir after the Army fled in disarray; Puller was Patton's first cousin and a maximum Marine Corps hero.

I thought this thread had died long ago. If it continues, please ping me to the party.

God bless you and yours.

Clarence Thomas's parents were not very responsible people and probably were not practicing Catholics. He was originally brought up by his drug-addicted mother in a rural shack without plumbing. His father probably scooted before Clarence knew him. It was Clarence's maternal grandparents in Savannah who stepped in when he was quite young, took him to Savannah, and enrolled him in a school for black children run by Franciscan nuns. In later life, Clarence Thomas always invited the surviving nuns to his swearing-in ceremonies even when he was not Catholic and he always attributed every success to those nuns and to his grandparents. His grandfather was an independent businessman selling fuel and ice and influenced Clarence not only as to faith but also as to capitalism and the need not to be dependent on government.

Clarence entered a minor seminary and studied for the priesthood at a high school level. He left the seminary and the Catholic Faith over racism at the seminary directed at Martin Luther King, Jr. For a time he was a student radical at Holy Cross and then at Yale Law School, married a black Muslim woman who bore his only child, worked with Slick Willy and Hildebeast at New Haven Legal Aid as a Yale Law student, then took a job under then Missouri Attorney General John Danforth who mentored him to Executive Director of EEOC, DC Circuit Court of Appeals and then the SCOTUS. In the process, Clarence became quite conservative, was divorced from his Muslim wife, joined Truro Episcopalian Church in the VA suburbs, and met and married his current wife. After a quite bloody confirmation process, he took his seat on SCOTUS. A few years later, he returned to the Roman Catholic Church.

Of interest, when Clarence was a small child, he was brought up by his mother to speak only Gullah, a slave language still used in some rural black communities as their only language and he has said that English is truly his second language, that he asks few questions from the bench because, inter alia, he is still somewhat uncomfortable with English.

Now, see here! Some children of the Inquisition here who are nonetheless friendly toward Protestants and even toward Masons might resemble that remark!

God bless you and yours!

I believe every Fascist leader of the 20th century who colectively almost managed to enslave the world was Roman Catholic by birth........ Must be a coincidence!

Personally I know Roman Catholic, Sikh and Muslim Freemasons, but the vast majority are Protestant.
