(Gal 1:8-9) But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema. As we said before, so now I say again: If any one preach to you a gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be anathema.

Q & A FATHER KENNETH DOYLE
Catholics and Freemasons

Freemasonry is a fraternal society that traces its origin to medieval associations of stonemasons; in the U.S., there are grand lodges in every state, with a total membership of about 1.2 million in the U.S. Masons, too, involve themselves in a variety of charitable works, and no doubt many Americans view Masonry primarily as a social and philanthropic fraternity.

The reality, though, is that Masonry is at heart a naturalistic religion whose basic tenets are incompatible with Catholic faith and practice. (Pope Leo XIII said in 1884 that Masonry had as its fundamental doctrine "that human nature and human reason ought in all things be mistress and guide" and denied "that anything has been taught by God.")

The Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith declared in 1983 that "the church's negative judgment in regard to Masonic associations remain unchanged" and that "the faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive holy Communion." 

(In 1985, a report by historian William J. Whalen of Purdue University given to the U.S. bishops' Pastoral Research and Practice Committee said that Masonry "honors Jesus Christ as it honors Socrates, Buddha and Muhammed," and that Masonry "cannot acknowledge any special spiritual claims by Jesus, since this would violate the basis of Freemasonry," and that "Catholics in the United States and elsewhere may not be Freemasons.")

EXCERPT VIA THE PHILIPPINESThe satanic rosaries, the Illuminati and Freemasonry

From 1885 to date, the secret political societies have been perfecting their formation, and… have drawn closer together in mutual alliance and cooperation. Those who believe in this ideology look forward to a new world order that would emerge when the world’s urban working classes would lead a revolution against property owners that would one day create a stateless, classless society.

Allow me to sight the four basic premises that the new world order wants to involve: (1) the elimination of private property, (2) the elimination of national governments and national sovereignty, (3) the elimination of traditional Judeo-Christian theism, and (4) a world government controlled by an elite made up of those who are considered to be superior, or in the occultic sense, “adepts” or “illuminated.” 

Even Pope Pius XI declared in 1937 that communism is behind it, “There are those occult forces which for a long time have been working to overthrow the Christian Social Order.” The new order swept away property, the government, and the outward worship of God.

Back when Church Militant was still good, they did a really good show on Freemasons. I think it's on YouTube.

Not a Church Militant fan any longer?  Why?

A few reasons, I used to actually subscribe to them back when it was still cm.tv

They started monetizing everything including shows that were once free, they started bashing other lay traditional groups such as the Remnant because of their stance on the SSPX, they went in a huge bashing spree with a week long attack on the SSPX where while I've never gone to them I certainly recognize their struggle and the fact that without them none of us would have TLMs today, I disagree with Michael Voris' never talk about the insane stuff the Pope does policy, and quite honestly I got tired of Voris'  style after a while. There are a couple other things, but I can't think of them right now.
