he next time you hear from some
fundamentalist Christian talking about how the United States of
America was founded by a group of church-going Christians, as
the fundamentalists claim they are, think about this:
The revolution against England was NOT a popular idea. Most
people in The Colonies were quite happy with the way things were
going. The people who were concerned about the taxes were those
who would have to pay the majority of the taxes: the wealthy,
the factories, and the shop owners. The majority of people in
this country worked either for themselves or for someone else.
The Boston Tea Party, you will recall, occurred because of the
tax on tea. The fact of the matter is that most of the people in
The Colonies didn't drink tea. It was mainly the wealthy who
retained that habit. It was, though, symbolic for the continued
taxing to pay for the British nobility's excesses.
Fundamentalist Christians have this mistaken idea that when The
Declaration of Independence was signed, everyone stood in line
to sign it. Actually, it took over 5 years for everyone to sign
it. That was well after the Revolutionary War was won. Part of
the problem was transportation the other part was that many of
the signers weren't sure that breaking away from England was the
best thing to do. After all, England was the greatest military
and naval power in the world and their protection was an asset.
So what if they taxed The Colonies? The taxes were necessary for
having the British military and navy ready to defend them.
Now, what about the Founding Fathers of the United States?
Something like 98% of the Founding Fathers of the United States
were MASONS. Their main religious affiliation was UNITARIAN. The
rest were either Catholic or Church of England. If you will look
at the Masonic rolls of Boston (MA), New York (NY), Philadelphia
(PA), Richmond (VA) and a dozen other cities lining the east
coast, it reads like a Who's Who in American History. Many of
the historical figures who came to help The Colonies in their
break from England (e.g. Lafayette from France and Polaski from
Poland) were also Masons. In fact, many of the officers who were
fighting on the British side were also Masons. Masons, at that
time, were DEISTS. A deist is one who believes that a God
created the world but that same God doesn't interfere with it.
Most Christians are theists. A theist sees God interfering with
or can interfere with what's happening in the world. (This isn't
any different than the Pagans who believed that the gods
interfered with the lives of humans.) In other words, the
Founding Fathers of this country saw that what happens here was
up to them. It wasn't God's will that The Colonies break away
from England. It wasn't God's will that there be a United States
of America. Nor was Manifest Destiny God's will. It wasn't God's
will that the United States eventually become a world power.
The Masonic tradition at that time was highly steeped in
OCCULTISM. The Masons were all practicing CEREMONIAL MAGICIANS.
George Washington, wearing a Masonic apron, actually performed a
Masonic (occult) rite when the cornerstone of the capital was
laid and he placed a box containing Masonic medallions in that
cornerstone. The signing of the Declaration of Independence was
based on astrological timing worked out by one of the Founding
Fathers. July 4th, 1776 at 12:00 noon at Philadelphia (PA) was
very significant. That very time is when John Hancock placed his
signature on the Declaration. They wanted to make sure that all
of the "signs" were propitious for this infant country. Would
Christians go to this trouble? Absolutely NOT! Consequently, the
United States was founded by occultists based on occult
The Founding Fathers did NOT care for people who would
manipulate The Bible for their own purposes. Their disdain for
manipulative Christian religious philosophies and manipulative
preachers is well-documented. People like Jerry Fallwell, Billy
Graham, Oral Roberts, Kenneth Copeland, Gene Scott, Jimmy
Swaggart, Peter Popov, Benny Hinn, and others of their ilk would
bring out their anger. Read the works of Thomas Paine ("Common
Sense") and Thomas Jefferson. (Fundamentalists conveniently
over-look Jefferson's scathing attacks on these kinds of
preachers.) Jefferson, himself, was so angry with these kinds of
philosophies and people that he even wrote his own version of
The Bible. The Bible that George Washington and many of the
presidents took the oath of office on was, in fact, a Masonic
Bible. That Bible is now in the Smithsonian.
The Masonic tradition at that time was a powerful influence on
the world. For centuries just about every Pope, Cardinal,
Bishop, nobleman, the royalty, and many generals were Masons.
Many important people were also Masons. Joseph Smith, the
founder of the Mormons, was a Mason, as were many of the Baroque
and Classical composers. Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Sam
Houston, and more than half of the U.S. presidents were Masons.
It was in the middle of the 19th century that THE CHURCH
condemned the Masonic tradition and said they were all a bunch
of devil worshippers. After The Church's condemnation of the
Masonic tradition, the manipulative branches of Christianity
took up the banner (even though they see The Catholic Church as
in league with the devil) because it aided them in their cause "
control of the masses.
Another thing you need to consider is that the principles upon
which The United States was founded upon were, by and large, NOT
Christian principles. Freedom of religion is definitely not a
Christian principle. Nor is the right to vote a Christian
principle. Free education for everyone is also not a Christian
ideal. Also excluded are freedom of speech, press, or assembly.
But then, slavery was permitted by Christianity (see Eph. 6:5)
and this verse was used by, what were, the Southern
fundamentalists of the time. In essence, the rights of the
individual were NOT Christian but were Masonic ideals.
It's time that the facts be presented. Most people will not take
the time to research and find the truth. Fundamentalists are
always going around talking about The Truth, but when they are
confronted by it they refuse to accept it. There are two types
of ignorance: The first type of ignorance is that brought about
by nature where an individual doesn't have the mental capacities
to seek and/or understand it. The second type of ignorance is
chosen ignorance. This is the byword of fundamentalist
Christianity. Through half-truths (half-truths are whole lies),
purposeful semantic manipulations, and feigned knowledge and
wisdom they "trap(ped) you with gile (lies)" (as Paul said to
the Corinthians). The Truth is out there. You need to find it
for yourself. No one has it for you.
