'Goddess of Freemasonry', Masonic Grand Commander Statue Toppled in Nation's Capital

A couple of nights ago (June 20, 2020), the skateboard-wielding,  peaceful-protesting representatives of the Lamest Generation in American history managed, in their inconsolable grief, to stumble upon an old statue of the father of modern Freemasonry (video below)--Grand Master Albert Pike. 

With no real idea who he was, the brave Statue Killers knocked down old Albert, scribbled a few F-words on the stone base of his statue and set him on fire.

So much for the Brotherhood of Man! 

The irony was rich, of course, but lost on our benighted rebels without a clue, who evidently thought they were sticking it to Christian America by knocking down the statue of the man the late, great Solange Hertz described in the pages of The Remnant as a "Luciferian high priest." 

Albert Pike (along with the "Goddess of Freemasonry" that rested at his feet) had been honored in the Judiciary Square neighborhood for 120 years. Back in 1901, a dedication ceremony included thousands of Masons marching in a celebratory parade in honor of their most cherished son. 

Little did they know that one day the Catholic-bashing, Christophobic mob they'd incited worldwide would tear their Grand Master apart and burn him in effigy.

It was said of Pike that he "found Freemasonry in a log cabin and left it in a Temple", since he is buried in the House of the Temple, headquarters of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, at 16th and S Streets NW, in Washington, D.C.

Some of the old legends of the Swamp (on which Washington, D.C. was built) say that the reason the buildings in our nation's capital are so low to the ground (no skyscrapers) is because by law none can rise above the  "sacred monument" of Pike's Tomb. 

Whether or not this is true, the city's love affair with Freemasonry is hardly the stuff of legend. Masonry is carved into the very stone, and Albert Pike is venerated like a god.  Or at least he used to be, until the new Sons of Liberty knocked him into anarchy.  

Grandmaster Albert Pike is the anti-Evangelist of American Freemasonry,  having penned the de facto Bible of Freemasonry -- his 1871 masterwork"Morals and Dogma",  which is described by Freemasons as a "huge manual for the instruction of the Rite, as much a compilation as a composition... which remains to this day a monument of learning... containing the best Masonic thinking and writing in our literature." (MasonicDictionary.com)

He was, according to the Masonic Dictionary, "the master genius of Masonry in America, both as scholar and artist. No other mind of equal power ever toiled so long in the service of the Craft in the New World. No other has left a nobler fame in our annals."

For her part, the Catholic Church condemned old Albert's Freemasonry with the full weight of her authority for the past two hundred years, with more popes warning against the secret society than any other single organization.  

Pope Leo XIII in his encyclical, Humanum Genus, and elsewhere, the 1917 Code of Canon Law (Pius X—Benedict XV) provided, in Canon 2335, as follows:

All those who enroll their names in the sect of Freemasons or similar associations which plot against the Church or legitimate civil authorities, incur by this very fact the penalty of excommunication, absolution from which is reserved simply to the Holy See.

In bizarre poetic justice, old Albert Pike has been cut down by the very same mob that sent Robespierre to Madame Guillotine when the first Reign of Terror kicked things off in France a couple of hundred years ago. Pike, like Robespierre before him, had devoted his life to the Masonic principles of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. But, then as now, the mob was singularly unimpressed, proving once again that, sooner or later, Christophobia always leads to anarchy. 

The question is, who's next? George Washington's iconic monument? The Statue of Liberty?  Lady Liberty perched high atop the dome of our nation's capitol? We'll have to wait and see as the Revolution continues to consume itself. 

In the meantime, Long Live Christ the King!
