Author and 32nd degree Freemason, Robert W. Sullivan discusses the influence of ancient mysteries, ceremonies, sages and astral bodies on the very foundation of America.
- I remember it well- the first time I heard the phrase “Freemason”. Sure, in hindsight, it came from an uneducated idiot at a college party, but it was enough to make me rush to Google for enlightenment. My 20-year-old brain couldn’t believe what it had read. Masons seemed to be the stuff of fiction. A shadowy cabal of powerful men linked to basically every major event that lead to the establishment of the United States. It was well known- George Washington, Ben Franklin and and a slew of other founding fathers we worship were members of this secretive fraternal order shrouded in creepy symbols, weird phrases and secret handshakes. How could I not have known this? Then I came across the claims that masons were devil worshipers, prayed to idols and practiced black magic.
