One of the more hilarious things about the author of the Freemasonry Watch
website and her/his
identical twin, "Sainty",
discredited as a racist, liar and forger, is (their) shared propensity to think that she/he can actually rewrite history. What
follows are a couple of examples of his attempts which, sadly, those not
familiar with the background might accept as truth. They are, though, heinous
lies: nothing more and certainly nothing less.
"Watchy" now claims that the infamous Taxil Hoax
that attempted to discredit
Albert Pike is actually a creation of Masons in order to protect his reputation.
Sound crazy? Well, it's not much different from the bizarre attempt of
"St. John the Sublime Reformer" to claim a connection between the KKK
and Freemasonry (read that story here).
(Nor is it an original claim - as noted at the bottom of this page....)
We'll use what's on the FW website (as of August, 2001 - it may be changed after
"Watchy" reads this!). From there we read:
2. 'Illustrious' Albert Pike 33�
Instructions to World Supreme Councils
Aug. 14, 1889
The following quotation is taken from
Edith Starr Miller's ('Lady Queensborough') Occult Theocracy (Published
originally in 1933 e.v., later published by the Christian Book Club of
America.), pp. 220 - 221.
The theological dogma of Albert Pike is
explained in the 'Instructions' issued by him, on July 14, 1889, to the 23
Supreme Councils of the world and have been recorded by A. C. De La Rive
in La Femme et l'Enfant dans la Franc-Maconnerie Universelle (page 588).
You will often see Freemasonry try and
associate the well known French occult author Abbe Clarin de la Rive with
Taxil. This is a bare faced lie, de la Rive had absolutely nothing to do
with him or anything that this Mason was alledged <sic>
to have written or said.
(Minfo Note: Really? In
de la Rive's work cited above, the following appears: "It was
the Sister Diana Vaughan that Albert Pike, -- in order to give her the
greatest mark of confidence, -- charged to carry his luciferian
encyclical, to Paris, during the Universal Exposition." Who was
this Diana Vaughan? Read on....)
NOWHERE in ANY of Freemason Taxil's writings does the following quotation
appear, in whole OR part. If it did believe us the Freemasons would have
the Taxil writing which included it plastered from one end of the Net to
the other. We challenge the Freemasons to produce ANY document written by
the anti-clerical Freemason Gabriel Jogand (Leo Taxil) that includes the
following quotation! It's a wonder they don't try and pin what Albert Pike
wrote in Morals and Dogma on Taxil. Perhaps that is next!
Note: Apparently the Freemasonry Watch website wishes to overlook three very
salient facts: first, that Taxil had been expelled from Freemasonry within
months of his having become a Mason; second, that Diana Vaughan never existed but was, rather,
the fanciful creation of Taxil and third, that upon the confession of
Taxil, de la Rive publicly apologized for his many anti-Masonic writings,
having been duped by Taxil. So if de la Rive had nothing whatsoever
to do with Taxil - as is asserted by "Watchy" - then where did his material come from
and why on earth would he be publishing apologies for having been duped by
the man? Typical rewriting of history....)
'That which we must say to the crowd is --
We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition.
'To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors

'If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay
whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy, and hatred of man, barbarism and
repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests, calumniate him?
'Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately
Adonay is also God. For the eternal law is that there is no light
without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for
the absolute can only exist as two Gods: darkness being necessary to
light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue,
and the brake to the locomotive.
'In analogical and universal dynamics one
can only lean on that which will resist. Thus the universe is balanced
by two forces which maintain its equilibrium: the force of attraction
and that of repulsion. These two forces exist in physics, philosophy and
religion. And the scientific reality of the divine dualism is
demonstrated by the phenomena of polarity and by the universal law of
sympathies and antipathies. That is why the intelligent disciples of
Zoroaster, as well as, after them, the Gnostics, the Manicheans and the
Templars have admitted, as the only logical metaphysical conception, the
system of the two divine principles fighting eternally, and one cannot
believe the one inferior in power to the other.
'Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is a

Note: Perhaps Freemasonry Watch could cite some specific examples of
this 'identical use' anywhere. We'll bet she/he can't do it!)
There are other
interesting examples of foolishness on the Freemasonry Watch web page where this
ludicrous claim was found.
notable is the constant reference to Taxil as a Freemason. The organization to
which he belonged was not then and is not now recognized by any legitimate
Masonic body. Moreover, having been quickly removed from even THAT organization, Taxil
should no more be categorized in that fashion than someone who has been removed
from school by expulsion be subsequently referred to as a 'student'. It's typical,
though, of "Watchy's" frenetic attempts to smear.
There's also an attempt
to describe the way and manner in which Taxil was removed from Freemasonry,
mentioned not only on his website but also in many newsgroup postings. The
source (only recently identified due to a reference elsewhere on the FW website) is
a book by Alec Mellor written in French and translated into English. Two
salient points that the web page seems to conveniently
Mellor was a Catholic
theologian. The Freemasonry Watch website wouldn't mention that since some of the website's
claims about the evils of Freemasonry rest on the condemnation by the Catholic
Church in the 1700s and that the book quoted bears a foreword which clearly
states: "This is not a history of Freemasonry; it
is not even an
historical account of certain Masonic events, it is a collection of short
stories that are products of the author's imagination though each one is
founded on Masonic fact."
Thus the claim that the
Vatican somehow became involved in the removal of Taxil from the Lodge is
specious at best, unsupported by any author writing factual history. Not
unlike other claims made by the self-created "St. John", the
Freemasonry Watch website creator has again been hoist on his own petard.
And we would be remiss if
we did not also note that this idea of the hoax not being a hoax did not
originate with our little "Watchy". Anti-Mason Jim Searcy made
identical claims many years earlier. Like most of the material
regurgitated on the Freemasonry Watch website, however, it is neither accurate
NOR original. Any thoughts that anyone might harbor about the originality
of the foolish claims "Watchy" makes always have their source in other
BRYAN STEVENS - and the Case of the Outright Lie!
Another example of the lies, deceit and
historical revision so clearly exhibited by the anonymous "Watchy"
is found in his example relative to an alt.freemasonry newsgroup poster who has
used the nickname 'boazlebub'. In November, 2001, that poster arrived to
announce that he had created a website which, it was found, contained much of
the Emulation Ritual as used by some lodges in the UK. The poster was
initially thought by a UK Mason as being "Watchy" himself because the
poster had linked his new site into the so-called 'Freemasonry Watch' website.
However the style as well as the fact that it was a website which cost money
(something our dear 'pet' is loathe to part with despite his hatred of Masons) identified the
individual as being someone else. I posted to that effect and further identified
the individual as one Bryan Stevens. Long story short: Bryan had become upset
because he believed that Freemasons were abusing the criminal justice system. He
came to that conclusion based on the ranting in the British press as well as
the stories he was being fed by his former brother-in-law who claimed to be a Mason capable
of such criminality. To retaliate, Bryan decided to post the rituals.
Here's how "Watchy" characterizes that incident:
|"The web site where this material was originally posted was dead by Dec 13, 2001, a span of only 3 weeks since the author, who at great trouble, published this material after inheriting it from a deceased ex-mason relative who had run afoul of his "brothers" and was abandoned by them."
Why did that
website die? Well, it didn't! It's actually alive and well to this day but
absent the rituals which had been placed on it. Bryan - the site's owner and creator - took
them off without any undue influence.
Further, Bryan has - as a result of all this, JOINED
FREEMASONRY and is active on the alt.freemasonry newsgroup under his own
Here's the background of what really happened:
Bryan posted some
material because he believed that he'd
learned of a wrong and wanted to take action
However, when Masons wrote to
him both publicly and privately to ask why he had made such charges
against Freemasonry, he was
(unlike many anti-Masons) both reasonable and rational.
Based on the
Masons' exhibited sincerity, Bryan revealed
that his information had come from a former brother-in-law
who had made many statements about the evils of Freemasonry and was
himself (ostensibly) a Freemason.
Bryan communicated details of his former brother-in-law's charges to a
U.K. Mason who found that the the brother-in-law had
actually been excluded from his Lodge some three years earlier!
Presented with this
information and seeing the deceit perpetrated by his
former brother-in-law, Bryan removed the ritual material from his website
continued his connection with that UK Mason and attended a number of
Masonic events in and around
his area. Impressed with what Freemasonry was all about, he
petitioned the organization and today is a proud and involved
nothing but a presentation of the truth to someone who looked
at the facts objectively.
However, our little "Watchy" wants you to believe something
In Bryan's own words:
yeah. riiiigghht. i

ex-brother-in-law who is alive and well and living in andover, hampshire, u.k.
here about the ritual he'd used for the exposure on the web>
the reasons he ran afoul of
his brothers is not up for discussion in a public forum but if he treated his
brethren the same way he treated me, freemasonry is better off without him.
the reason i removed the
website was because i discussed the situation with two people (one a
freemason, one not) and came to the conclusion that i had been misled and was
given entirely the wrong impression about freemasonry.
i freely admit that i had
uncharitable thoughts when i did created the website but publicly and
unreservedly apologise. but rest assured, there was no "co-ordinated
complaint campaign" against me.
although i did wake up one
morning to find a mouse's head on the pillow next to me, i dismissed this as
the carnivorous work of my cat, "holly", rather than the masonic
"Watchy" indeed loves the
hyperbole - but, as is seen, it certainly doesn't square with the truth. "Watchy"
|Every web site that exposes or criticizes Freemasonry that uses the large free web site hosts has been shut down after co-ordinated
<sic> complaint campaigns by freemasonry.
Note: We don't suppose that this has anything to do with the hate speech
which sites like "Watchy's" use. Neither do we suspect that
he could actually produce some evidence to support these charges.
This has happened to Freemasonry Watch twice so far.
Note: This didn't have anything to do with the hate speech
on "Watchy's" site, eh?
Note well the vicious and slanderous personal attacks they make.
Note: Personal attacks? Like "Watchy's" posting on his
so-called 'discussion board' on 3/31/2002
of the names, addresses and phone numbers of three persons whom he
attempts to convince others might be me - and thereby encourage
harassment? Or, perhaps, the factual information about Bryan Stevens
But Freemasonry is responsible for, and promotes, 'Liberty' right?
Note: Actually, Freemasonry makes no such claims. They're the fanciful
creation of a very hate-filled individual who'll use every type of lie
and exaggeration to further his goal. When he's gone, will anyone
Poor "Watchy": alone, anonymous, and un-heeded. Guess by now it's
pretty clear that his 'soul-mate' "St.
John the Sublime Reformer" wasn't able to crush Freemasonry by July,
1999 - or even in a complete and full decade after that - as he
had bragged online that he would do.
