Freemasons Launch Campaign Praising Pope for Endorsing Their Beliefs

After centuries of embracing Freemasonry, the Roman Catholic church officially banned their members from belonging to the pseudo-religion in 1738 and were subject to excommunication. There simply could not be two different religions vying for world domination that could live in harmony, Pope Clement XII argued. But in 1983 the strict ban was lifted, forbidding instead only those organizations that are currently “plotting against the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Church.” From that time forward, Romanists could join the Freemasons so long as they weren’t – technically or actively – trying to destroy Catholic faith.

As Seth Dunn has demonstrated in his book, Christianity and the Craft, Freemasonry is indeed its own religion and is incompatible with any form of Christianity (as is Roman Catholicism). The centuries-old fights between the Vatican and Freemasonry is like watching two heretics fight in a cage match.

But with Pope Francis, the rhetorical question, “Is the Pope Catholic?” – designed to answer questions in the affirmative – doesn’t make much sense. Francis may – indeed – be a Pope who is hardly Catholic, at least if doctrine means anything. This is why Francis has been charged with heresy by many leaders inside the Catholic Church, who have been noticing his constant departures from Catholic teaching.

Aside from going soft on homosexuality, incessantly worshipping a South American Mother Earth goddess, and posturing toward a position freeing women to serve as clergy, the Pope has an additional problem according to conservative Catholics…he’s got a huge Freemason fan base who are bolstering his support worldwide.

Lifesite News (a Catholic news source) reported yesterday that there is a coordinated effort among Freemasons to support Francis, largely because he has embraced Universalism – the belief that all are going to Heaven and that all people are the children of God.

The Grand Lodge of Spain put out a press release praising Pope Francis for embracing their doctrine on the universal brotherhood of man, and it can be seen here. They write…

#FratelliTutti is the latest encyclical of Pope Francis in which he embraces the Universal Brotherhood, the great principle of modern [freemasonry] ‘Recognizing the dignity of each human person, we can revive together a worldwide desire for brotherhood’.”

In particular, they are excited that Pope Francis opposes the death penalty on the grounds that we are all God’s children.

The Spanish Grand Lodge said, ““Pope Francis’ new encyclical, ‘Fratelli Tutti,’ does something that some Catholics believed could not be done: It ratifies a change in church teaching. In this case, on the death penalty.”

Additionally, the Grand Lodge of Italy has recently praised Pope Francis in a leading Freemasonic magazine. In this case, it was from embracing the ‘brotherhood of mankind’ in regard to Muslims (watch below).

  1. Will wonders never cease. I was rescued out of both heretical organizations roughly 20 years ago, and I am so grateful to the Lord. In a way, it kind of makes sense for them to team up as they both have those universalistic tendencies, especially with the current pope. I’ve always believed that to serve in that blasphemous role and allow people to call you by titles reserved for God that you had to be at really an atheist. And I think Francis is. It’s the ultimate case of the blind leading the blind into a pit.

  2. The Catholic Church has never approved of, nor will she ever approve of, Freemasonry. As has been well documented, Masonry, more than any other ideological system (as you called it, a “pseudo-religion”, which may be appropriate, though religion is quite a poor term regardless) has been condemned incessantly by the Church Christ founded (Matthew 16). St Maximillian Kolbe (OFM), martyred by the Nazis in the concentration camps for his witness for Christ, considered Freemasonry the hidden arm to Communism, the open iteration of the self-same ideology.
    Your statement that only organizations “plotting against the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Church” are condemned by the Church ignores the fact that Christian doctrine, while it does evolve toward greater Truth in accord with the promise of Christ (The Comforter shall “guide you into all truth”) does not and cannot abrogate earlier teaching believed “everywhere, always, and by all,” which opposition to Freemasonry certainly falls under. It also neglects the fact that Freemasonry, by its very nature as a universalist ideology rejecting the exclusive lordship of Christ and salvation through Him alone necessarily opposes the supremacy of Christ’s Church.
    As usual with anti-Catholic publications this article is a ridiculous strawman of Christ’s Church and a denial of the Truth of the Word of God. Please, please, please pray for Truth and guidance, and the Lord’s will in the lives of all professed Christians. Prayer and the Holy Scriptures are what led me home to the Catholic Church after years of anti-Catholic Protestantism.
    God bless you. Pax Christi!
