Why Can't A Catholic Be A Free Mason?
Posted 20 May 2012 - 09:41 AM
I have read a book called "why can't a catholic be a free mason." it has all the vatican stamps. I will give one reason that the book says "because multiple popes have spoken on this as a matter of faith and morals."(words to that effect, i'm interested to see how many other people know why this is still the one of the vaticans number 1 priorities for catholics to understand. And if you like get the book and find out,it is a simple 60 page approx 1-2 hour read written by an ex-masonic lodge leader.

Salza studies the lodges' rituals, "masonic" bible and historic knowledge. He evalulates these authorities in light of Sacred Scripture, the Church Fathers, the Catechism, papal decrees and canon law. Also Salza looks at the conspiracy nature of the group.
The main problematic theme with masons is the very nature of their group. For example there are the oaths and phrases that deny the Christian God as the true God. The book however give clear evidence of this occuring with clear explanation to why Catholics CANNOT partake.
Hope this helps.

- A competitive concept of God (as a type of Deist "great architect of the universe" which is a composition of all religious believes - as they accept all religious creeds as equally valid)
- A competitive religious community (Masons strongly divide people into Masons and Profanes/non-masons - regardless their creed or religion).
- A competitive set of rituals, aimed at fully awaking you to the truth (or some other peculiarity) - very reminiscent of pagan rituals from ancient Egypt, Babylon and Persia.
These are just a few small examples I can name off the top of my head now.
My advise: Stay clear of this stuff, it's bad news.
