Pure speculation

I was not defending nor trying to justify Freemasonry. I was merely pointing out a logical fallacy in an argument.

No, I will not read some religious nut talk about other religious nuts, that is the definition of boring in my world. No, I do not care if they are Luciferian or a cult, they are no different than any other religious group. Jim Jones led a Christian cult - how did that turn out?

I agree that secret societies can do great harm. But, I will not initiate force to stop them. It goes against all my principles. People are free to associate with anyone and in any way they wish as long as it is done of free will and does not cause injury to others. Now, I suppose you could argue that they cause injury to society. But, I have never seen objective evidence of that. I can, however, point to the great harm caused by the fundamentalist Christians in the US being the main support mechanism for the killing of little brown children in Middle East. If you want to investigate secret societies that are actually intertwined with government and policy - look at The Family.
