Coroneted a 33° Mason

At the end of August, as Hurricane Irene was laying siege to the East Coast, I, along with my wife Marian and a handful of Brothers & their wives from the Valley of Syracuse took the last train heading west towards Chicago, IL.

The purpose of the trip was to attend the Supreme Council session of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction. It was my trip to the Annual Session and it was extra special because it was there, on Tuesday, August 30th, 2011 that I was Coroneted a 33° Mason along with over 160 other Brothers from the NMJ.

In the photo are half of the Brothers from New York who were in the class with me. They are (front l-r) Piers A. Vaughn (Valley of New York) and Donald R. Magill (Valley of Binghamton); (back l-r) Ronald C. Edmonson (Valley of Schenectady); myself; Robert M. Tyrrell (Valley of Syracuse) and Yves Etienne (Valley of New York). Also from New York, but not in this photo, were Daniel L. Clark (Valley of Utica), M. Donald Darrohn III (Valley of Rochester), Peter J. Van Elzakker (Valley of Rochester), Glenn F. Gaskill (Valley of Buffalo), Jeffrey M. Williamson (Valley of Buffalo) and William M. Winchester (Valley of Jamestown). Brother Robert M. Getschel from the Valley of Rockville Centre didn't escape the hurricane in time and could make it. He will be included in next year's class. Congratulations everyone! It was a great time and one of the most memorable days of my life.

Brother Chris Hodapp of Freemasons for Dummies fame was also a member of our class and he has a nice write up here and a nice piece on the 33° ring. Check'em out! It was great to see him out & about again.

I see from your profile that you are interested in Scotland! Have you checked out my blog yet?

I’m working my way from the north of Great Britain to the south through pictures. You’ll see photographs of glorious vistas, charming close-ups, delicious recipes and interesting tidbits of life in Great Britain for the pleasure of Scotophiles everywhere!

Hi, probably our entry may be off topic but anyways, I have been surfing around your blog and it looks very professional. It’s obvious you know your topic and you appear fervent about it. I’m developing a fresh blog plus I’m struggling to make it look good, as well as offer the best quality content. I have learned much at your web site and also I anticipate alot more articles and will be coming back soon. Thank you...

We at are attempting to start a Masonic book club online where we discuss books dealing with the Craft. Our site is currently quite new and a bit rough however we are working on it a bit each day. Currently we plan to have discussion in the comments section of the 'book of the month' thread for the month of October and are currently looking at various forum/bulletin board systems to use for a more oraganized discussion of the books. We'd really appreciate it if you would consider any sort of online shout out or just tell any Brothers that you know about what we are trying to do. Thank you Brother!

The Problem in our society are the Freemasons, aka masons. If they were to disappear, the world would be a farrrr.....better place!

Masonry, the sure path to ruin. You may not see it now in the beginning, but you will as you progress in the craft and further yourself away from God and your Christian faith...

For starters, masons are interested ONLY in accepting those that hold some position of importance or authority in society. If it is a would be or actual politician than even better! Masons do NOT accept regular joes, homeless, or unimportant lazy folk. Second, the hook is the so-called Believe in a Higher Being nonsense (be it Jew, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim etc.). Third, as the mason progresses through the stages in the craft, the end goal for him is to realize that He does not need God because the transformation has occurred whereby the member realizes he is a God unto himself. Moreover, the ceremonies he participates in are Occult period and anti-Catholic (Christian), Muslim, Jewish, and Buddhist. They are demonic period.
Fourth, it is the duty of every mason not to knowingly or wittingly do harm, talk bad about or tell on his fellow mason. And, when a fellow mason is in need or danger to help him above all else. Therefore, this is the WHY it is so simple for the pedophiles within the occult mason organization to easily rape, molest, enter children with impunity. Some use mikey Finn, or simply get vulnerable children in exchange for cash to their families who need it. No fellow mason can, or is allowed by their own acceptance of the rules when entering the craft, to "tell" on one another. Hence, the perfect crime.
Fifth, just to clarify, the end game of masonry, which also is the de facto mission of the occult, is to slowly like hairloss, have it's members deconstruct all that is descent and Holy in society. Masonry and Catholicism are non-congruent. This is why every mason has a duty to oppress society (one of the masonic central tenets is: Through Chaos Comes Order, and it is the masons that will establish their occult order unto society). This is the reason why they work hard to destroy all that is sanctity in society and impose demonic teachings (For example: no Lord's prayer, gays and lesbians and 1/2 and 1/2 are a good thing,not a mental disorder which it is and if you oppose this you are racist of some sort. Have an abortion because it is not a human you have inside you but a piece of pepperoni, flood countries with muslims who NEVER integrate and are shut-in and by nature only impose on all their religious ways of thinking at all costs etc.).
And lastly, If one is a Catholic one cannot become a freemason. DO NOT be fooled by the masons and their lies. It is a mortal sin and excommunication to follow. If it were up to me i would banish masonry peiod, jail the pedophiles and bring forth to the Hague International Court all masons to pay for their Crimes Against Humanity. Hopefully, some day, this will occur.
