Freemasonry is an organization that supposedly dates back to ancient times and it is difficult to determine who started it and how they started it.  There are documents mentioning it in the 1300s and afterwards, but it is believed that consistent documentation of the organization did not take place until 1717 when the Grand Lodge… Continue reading The slavery of Freemasonry pt. 1
