Oh the conspiracy folks are going to have fun with these.
I agree, the Illuminate(sp?)/Free Masons screams should begin in the next few minutes
I referred to the trial in a thread only to suggest possible motives for the Knights Templar having a chip on their shoulder against the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. I presumed their innocence of the charges for which they were tried, and that the trial had been unjust. Nonetheless, I was assailed by dozens of Free Masons for slandering them. Now to find out that they were considered guilty of quite heinious things, and the only portions of their offenses they were cleared on were purely the heresy charges which non-Catholics such as Free Masons should take as no vindication at all.
Of course, if they really had anything at all to do with Free Masonry, then they certainly were heretics after all.
