(Continued from Part 2)
David shares some quotes from Elder Bernard’s Light on Masonry, the book mentioned by Finney in a previous quote. The first is about the “worldwide problem” of Masonry and its “midnight conspiracies”.
392: An Address to All Honest Masons. In Eight Numbers. (Originally published in 1828, in the Le Roy Gazette, Genesee county, N.Y.)
395: No. III. [Written address submitted by an anonymous former Mason.]
It is well known to all ‘active Masons’ and to persons generally, that in the dark conclave and secret meetings of Masons, have been planned conspiracies that have caused convulsions which have been felt in every part of the government under which they were bound to live as good citizens.
There has been planned and executed deeds by them in their midnight conspiracies, (I cannot call such meetings by a more gentle term,) at which humanity has revolted.
In France all was thrown into confusion, and anarchy came near ruling a people striving for liberty, by the society of Free Masons. At one time, considering they had all power, they throw off all disguise and discovered their real object….
But France is not alone in having her liberties invaded by Masons. It at one time came near overthrowing the government of Germany, and those that were honest Masons among them separated and forsook the institution….
396: Masonry was considered in Spain, Portugal, and Russia, of such a dangerous tendency, that it was put down by the strong arm of the law. It is now disturbing the tranquility of our brethren in South America.
More Than 400 Initiates Seceded
Bernard also writes about the number of Masons who seceded in the U.S.
33: More than four hundred initiates, within our own state, including Members of every Degree, from an Entered Apprentice to the Thrice Illustrious Knights of the Holy Trinity, have publicly renounced the Institution.
Thousands have silently withdrawn, and it cannot be presumed that any good man, who received it upon trust, will continue his connexion with the Fraternity after he has thoroughly examined the tendency of its principles.
Masons Were Untouchable Before the Revolt
He shares an eye-opening speech given by W.F. Brainard in 1825 detailing the power Freemasons had and explaining why they couldn’t be stopped.
34: Perhaps we cannot convey a bolder or more comprehensive view out of fancied power and unchastened ambition of Free Masonry, than is found in the Oration of the late W. F. Brainard, at New-London, Ct., before the Union Lodge, June 24, 1825, on the recurrence of one of her fabulous Anniversaries.
Mr. Brainard says—
“What is Masonry now? IT IS POWERFUL. It comprises men of RANK, wealth, office and talent, in power and out of power; and that in almost every place where power is of any importance.
And it comprises among other classes of the community, to the lowest, in large numbers, active men, united together, and capable of being directed by the efforts of others, so as to have the FORCE of CONCERT throughout the civilized world!
They are distributed too, with the means of knowing one another, and the means of keeping secret, and the means of co-operating, in the desk – in the legislative hall – on the BENCH – in every gathering of business – in every party of pleasure – in every ENTERPRISE of GOVERNMENT – in every domestic circle – in peace and in war – among enemies and friends – in one place as well as in another!
SO POWERFUL indeed, is it at this time, [June 24th, 1825] that it fears nothing from violence, either public or private; for it has every means, to learn it in season to COUNTERACT, DEFEAT and PUNISH IT!”
The Mason Threat
In an address to the New York State delegation, Convention president William Finn boldly stated that the Masons are a threat to our freedom and security.
50: ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW-YORK.
FELLOW-CITIZENS— A great crisis has occurred in our social condition.
The peace of this community has been extensively disturbed, the domestic security of the citizens openly violated, their property unlawfully invaded, and the life of one of them, without doubt, feloniously destroyed.
And these calamitous events have proceeded from a source which threatens our most valuable institutions, and all those possessions which make life desirable.
With these facts deeply impressed upon our hearts, we have been delegated to assemble here, to consult together, and advise upon the proper course to be pursued, in so momentous an emergency….
When the public peace, our domestic safety, our property, our life, our reputation, our equal rights as citizens, are all assailed, by the concerted action of numerous, wealthy, intelligent, and powerful bodies of men;
and the regular operations of our constituted authorities is found unable to protect us, then, it is most equally becoming to our minds and hearts, to our self-respect, and the most cherished interests of human liberty, that we should protect ourselves whatever evils may ensue….
Colliding with the Will of the People; What Can Be Done?
He also mentioned in his speech that the people are the only “legitimate” source of power and all of our decisions on the local and global level should be based on public opinion, not the agenda of handful of wealthy infiltrators.
He said that Freemasonry has violently collided with the will of the people, and the way our society is supposed to be run is slowly being replaced with the way Masons want it to be.
He asked what can be done to return order and restore power to the people, and in the quote below, he details how Masons have come to run the show with their own private institutions that bleed into the public arena and slowly gain control through their own prominence.
Free Masonry is a distinct, peculiar, independent government. It acknowledges no allegiance to civil government, nor alliance with it.
It has departments of its own, titles of its own, officers of its own, laws of its own, revenues of its own, oaths of its own, penalties of its own, sympathies of its own, and purposes of its own.
All the nations of the earth, however diverse their forms of government, or distant their territories, are but its provinces. It has no jurisdictional limits but the habitable globe.
Throughout its whole extent, it secures the loyalty of its subjects, by cords most ingeniously twisted, and of surpassing strength….
The possibility of its existence is dangerous; its actual occurrence demands instant, resolute, continued, and united, though prudent, exertion, till it shall become impossible….
