The Discovery Channel will tonight (Sunday, Feb. 11, 9 pm ET) feature its program Secret History of the the Freemasons.
Perhaps the show has been updated to reflect Scottish Rite Masonry's 'bizarre' sponsorship of NASCAR.
After all, it is now part of the history of Freemasonry, and there is still a lot of secrecy behind the idea. Whether it turns out to be a public relations coup or a public relations nightmare, it's odd to realize that forevermore, when the history of Freemasonry is discussed, NASCAR will be a part of it. Yes, children... many mystical, thoughtful, deep-thinking movers on the world stage were Freemasons, men like Elias Ashmole, Isaac Newton, Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Harry Truman, and of course, Brian Conz, world-famous driver of Scottish Rite's #34 Monte Carlo.
I understand that already in some Masonic jurisdictions, the Green Flag, traditionally used to signify the start of a race, will become part of the lodge room furniture, and will be hung from one of the two columns that greet the new candidate as he enters from the Preparation Room, and that the Checkered Flag will now drape the Holy Altar where he takes his obligations.
And of course the G will be replaced by a 3.
