Cassandra Frost, the reporter who has been investigating alleged improprieties in finances of Shrine organizations, is of Native American descent. In a blog article from last month, she wrote about the attitudes of certain founding fathers towards the American Indians. Those forefathers were Freemasons.
I'm glad I haven't had lunch yet. As I read this, I felt slightly sick to my stomach.

The other day, out of curiosity, I googled around to find what historical Masonic leaders had to say about Native Americans.
Or as one church site said:
“A historical report was then given of the continual breaking of treaties and promises as an operational mode of the establishment of the United States by the non-first nations cultures that immigrated to this land. The systematic genocide of the Native People's under Masonic expansionist manifest destiny, a philosophy derived from the Crusades mentality, was openly exposed.”
Here is what some of the Masonic leaders had to say about us:
George Washington, Fredericksburg Lodge No. 4, Fredericksburg, Virginia; Alexandria-Washington Lodge No. 22
Indians were defined as subhumans, lower than animals. George Washington compared them to wolves, “beasts of prey” and called for their total destruction. George Washington's troops skinned Native Americans like animals. Apparently his first agenda item as President was the exermination of the Native Americans.
President James Monroe: Williamsburg Lodge No. 6, Williamsburg, Virginia
During Monroe's administration, the United States acquired Florida from Spain, and U.S. troops fought against the Seminole Native Americans there.
Andrew Jackson: Harmony Lodge No. 1, Nashville, Tennessee; Grand Master 1822-23, Tennessee
Andrew Jackson — in 1814: “supervised the mutilation of 800 or more Creek Indian corpses — the bodies of men, women and children that [his troops] had massacred — cutting off their noses to count and preserve a record of the dead, slicing long strips of flesh from their bodies to tan and turn into bridle reins.” Jackson was also responsible for the Indian Removal Act and the Trail of Tears.
In 1867, General William Tecumseh Sherman, a Mason, said: “We must act with vindictive earnestness against the [Lakotas, known to whites as the Sioux] even to their extermination, men, women and children.”
In 1891, Frank L. Baum (author of The Wizard Of Oz and Mason) wrote in the Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer (Kansas) that the army should “finish the job” by the “total annihilation” of the few remaining Indians.
I’m not interested in doing much more research into this topic right now.
I think these statements speak for themselves.
Are the Masons responsible for the genocide of Native Americans?
Or did any of them try to stop it?
