My eyes hurt.  Who designed that website?

Interesting first post.
This is on the webpage: 

"Date Of Raising
June 24, 6000 A.L."

I wonder what that means.

I wonder what that means.

A.L. is short for Anno Lucis, or "in the year of light," which is the equivalent of the Gregorian year, plus 4000.  So 6000 A.L. is 2000 A.D.

There are three principal degrees in Masonry: Entered Apprentice (E.A.); Fellow Craft (F.C.); and Master Mason (M.M.).  With each degree, there is a associative descriptor symbolizing how the candidate obtained knowledge.  One is "initiated" as an E.A., "passed" to the degree of a F.C., and is "raised" to the sublime degree of a M.M.  The "raised" is a strict reference to being raised from the dead to the living, which each candidate goes through to become a M.M.
Thank you for clearing that up for me, Bonaventure.

This is an important topic as there are many self-professed catholics who believe it's perfectly fine to use the King James Bible instead of the version approved by apostolic authority. The protestant system is also steeped in naturalism as well which is why they repudiate authority:

T"he rejection by Luther of the visible Catholic Church opened the door, not only to the abuses of absolute rulers, supreme in Church and State, but soon led to an indifference to all ecclesiastical organizations. As faith in the supernatural life of grace and the supernatural order grew dim and waned, the way was made smooth for the acceptance of Freemasonry. The widespread loss of faith in the existence of the supernatural life and the growing ignorance of the meaning of the Redemption permitted the apostles of Illuminism and Masonry to propagate the idea that the true religion of Jesus Christ had never been understood or been corrupted by His disciples, especially by the Church of Rome, the fact being that only a few sages in secret societies down the centuries had kept alive the true teaching of Jesus Christ. According to this 'authentic' teaching our Saviour had established a new religion, but had simply restored the religion of the state of nature, the religion of the goodness of human nature when left to itself, freed from the bonds and shackles of society. Jesus Christ died a martyr for liberty, put to death by the rulers and priests. Masons and revolutionary secret societies alone are working for the true salvation of the world. By them shall original sin be done away with and the Garden of Eden restored. But the present organization of society must disappear, by the elimination of the tyranny of priests, the despotism of princes and the slavery resulting from national distinctions, from family life and from private property." -Fr Dennis Fahey
