Dee Parsons Defends Freemasonry
Dee Parsons stated the following on her Wartburg Watch blog regarding Freemasonry:
“All ‘good’ Christians believe that Masons are a cult and some go so far as to say that Masons are involved in a secret culture that is plotting to take over the country. Whereas, most Masons today are a bunch of good old boys who mutter some secret words (mostly Bible verses) and have secret handshakes then repair to the local bar for beer and pizza.” (L)
“All ‘good‘ Christians believe that Masons are a cult.” This statement is mocking Christians and according to Dee Parsons, these “good” Christians even “go so far as to say that Masons are involved in a secret culture.”
Freemasonry is a Gnostic religion based on the Jewish Kabbalah. Its occult secrets are revealed to men as they are initiated up the ladder and into the higher degrees. These men have taken oaths/obligations to not reveal these secrets under penalty of death. The following is an oath taken during the initiation of a new “Entered Apprentice” Mason which has been taken from Duncan’s Ritual and Monitor of Freemasonry: Entered Apprentice, or First Degree, Obligation:
“I do hereby and hereon most solemnly and sincerely promise and swear, that I will always hail, ever conceal, and never reveal, any of the arts, parts, or points of the hidden mysteries of Ancient Free Masonry…under no less penalty than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by its roots, and my body buried in the rough sands of the sea, at low-water mark…should I ever knowingly violate this my Entered Apprentice obligation.”
That Freemasonry is an occult secret society is indisputable. Why would Dee Parsons have us believe otherwise?
Dee Parsons then scorns these “good” Christians for going so far as to believe Masons are “plotting to take over the country.” It’s no secret among many Christians that Freemasons founded this country. Read The Masonic Foundations of the United States to learn more. Of greater concern, Freemasonry also controls Christianity in this country through Masonic controlled colleges, seminaries, denominations, and media (TV, radio, publishing).
Dee Parsons then goes on to dismiss these concerns and warnings from Christians with the tired old lie that Masons are just “a bunch of good old boys” who mutter mostly Bible verses!
Dee Parsons: “Freemasonry is a Christian Conspiracy”
“I was a member of the Rainbow Girls and my father was a 32nd degree Mason. You don’t get more experienced than that. And I am saying that Free Masonry is another one of those Christian conspiracies. The guys in this group do it to hang together and have a few…My dad, never one of [sic] secrets, showed me his ring and explained some of the ‘secret’ stuff. Good night! It was nothing. (L)
So according to Dee Parsons, the belief that Freemasonry conspires to infiltrate and subvert Christianity isn’t grounded at all in reality or in verifiable facts, but is really just the product of the delusional and “conspiratorial” Christian imagination.
Dee Parsons continues on: “I have to admit, my conspiracy theory radar goes up with things like Free masonry, yoga, Harry Potter, anti-Halloween, Christian Zionism, and ardent YEC, moon landing conspiracies, etc. (L)
What does Dee Parsons mean by saying that things like yoga, Harry Potter, and anti-Halloween make her “conspiracy theory radar” go up? It might be helpful to look up the meaning of “conspiracy theorist.” The following definition has been taken from Urban Dictionary:
“A word used by shills when they are losing an argument. The shill calls their opponent a ‘conspiracy theorist’ in an attempt to discredit them by implying that they are paranoid and delusional. In point of fact, it is the shill using the term ‘conspiracy theorist’ that is engaging in an ad hominem attack that can be considered delusional, brainwashed and willfully ignorant of the FACTS.”
It’s Christians who have strongly warned about the spiritual dangers involved in practicing yoga (Hinduism), celebrating Halloween, and in the mainstreaming of witchcraft through Harry Potter books, movies, camps. Why would Dee Parsons seek to discredit Christians for warning of these dangers by calling them conspiracy theorists?
Commenting on a Wartburg Watch post, Bob J gave a link that provided evidence John Macarthur is a Freemason. In response to that comment, Dee Parsons stated the following:
@ Bob J:
“That is a bizarre link. It is just another screed on freemasonry and allegations that certain leaders are Masons. It’s baloney and Christians should be careful not to fall for such conspiracy hogwash.” (L)
Finally, Dee Parsons stated: “OK Time for true confession. I was a Rainbow Girl and received my majority degree. That means I was a teen female version of the Masons and graduated in good standing. All we ever talked about was the rainbow being a sign that God would never again destroy the earth with water. Our secret sign and secret handshake were iterations on the rainbow. Real satan stuff, you know.” (L)
“Now, I [Dee Parsons] became a Christian when I was 17 and still keeping the outer door. If there was anything going on, I would have known about it.” (L)
One could legitimately question Dee Parsons’ conversion experience at 17 if she was still keeping up her Masonic duties at 20, the Age of Majority for Rainbows.
The following comment was made by a frequent Wartburg Watch commenter, Dr. Fundystan, on Sun Feb 28, 2016 at 11:02 AM:
“For what it’s worth, I am of Scottish descent (on my dad’s side). I’m also a Freemason – ironically enough, I am York right, not Scottish rite! And anyone who thinks Masonry is anything more than a social club or has any tie with Druidism is just ignorant. (L-comments)
I would like to invite Dr. Fundystan to read and to study the following:
“Masons are our present Druids.” (L) “…our mode of teaching the principles of our profession [Masonry] is derived from the Druids …” (L) “Masons .. admire the Druids and some of them even claim that Masonry came from Druidism.” (L)
