American Revolution and Freemasonry

And let us not forget the document "Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking up Arms," which preceded the Declaration of Independence by a year.

Here it is, in pertinent part:

"They have undertaken to give and grant our money without our consent, though we have ever exercised an exclusive right to dispose of our own property; statutes have been passed for extending the jurisdiction of courts of admiralty and vice-admiralty beyond their ancient limits; for depriving us of the accustomed and inestimable privilege of trial by jury, in cases affecting both life and property; for suspending the legislature of one of the colonies; for interdicting all commerce to the capital of another; and for altering fundamentally the form of government established by charter, and secured by acts of its own legislature solemnly confirmed by the crown; for exempting the "murderers" of colonists from legal trial, and in effect, from punishment; for erecting in a neighbouring province, acquired by the joint arms of Great-Britain and America, a despotism dangerous to our very existence; and for quartering soldiers upon the colonists in time of profound peace."

Comment:  What do you think the reference to "despotism" is?  It's an historical fact that it's a reference to the Catholic Church, as there was no "despotism" established by parliament in Canada.  What happened is that the Catholics were emancipated.  That's what Jefferson and his pals were referencing there.

"We have received certain intelligence, that general Carleton, the governor of Canada, is instigating the people of that province and the Indians to fall upon us; and we have but too much reason to apprehend, that schemes have been formed to excite domestic enemies against us."

Comment:  Who do you think is being spoken about when it says "the people of that province" (the majority of whom were Catholic) and "domestic enemies"?

It's a reference to Catholics, pure and simple.  It's a fact that no historian disputes.

Finally, some quotes from Thomas Jefferson:

"History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government."  Letter to Alexander von Humboldt December 6, 1813.

"In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own."
Letter to Horatio G. Spafford March 17, 1814.

There's nothing to "get over."  We have to accept the fact that our nation was anti-Catholic from its very foundation, and it still is anti-Catholic.
