However secret a society believes itself to be there are a number of higher ranking Masons who have been happy to spill the beans. Why do you presume that I have to make those discoveries ? I would have thought that common sense. Just because you want to close your eyes, why should others ? The priory never existed ? Surely you can do better than that ? There is, if you care to look. Outrank elite hey ? You are most certainly not inner circle and if you are then you must be one of those sideline Freemasons, like the Buffalos. Weak minded ? For standing up against mumbo jumbo, which has no place in the 20th century ? Fighting against an Archaic Neanderthal influence ? No Sir. I am anything but weak willed and shall not cease to proclaim such rituals as Satanic and most unhelpful within any 'so called' democracy, especially among politicians. Religion and Politics do nor mix, since one deals with facts and the other with fiction, dangerous to any society. Et In Arcadia Ego. I doubt you are a bastard, as you have proved with your very reasonable arguments. I only wish there were more people who can debate like you. I may not agree with you, but I respect you.
