It is important to understand that English Freemasonry and what is sometimes called
'Continental' or 'French' Freemasonry (Grand Orient) are not bedfellows. (Although Albert
Pike stated differently- see below) So some European Lodges are run under English
jurisdiction while others are not.
English Lodges have broken with the Grand Orient in France, but not with
other European and American Lodges who are still in communication with the Grand Orient in
France. Albert Pike dismissed the English disclaimer with the words, It is
idle to protest. We are Masons, and we recognize the French Brotherhood as Freemasons in
virtue of solidarity. Ours is a Universal Fraternity (Albert Pike is entombed
in Freemasonrys 33rd H.Q.in Washington)
Senator Delpech, President of the Grand Orient in France, speaking
to fellow Masons.Sept. 20th 1902 said .. The triumph of the
Galilean has lasted many centuries; but now His day is over.. He passes away to join in
the dust of the ages the other divinities of India, Greece and Rome, who saw so many
deceived creatures prostrate before their altars. Brother Masons we rejoice that we are
not without our share in the overthrow of false prophets
While 'English' Freemasonry puts on a front show of religion - 'Continental'
Freemasonry puts on no such front display and is more openly occultic.
However it is 'Freemasonry' and it comes out of the same
Italy had its P2 scandal where this one lodge contained what amounted to almost another
government. Within its ranks were the heads of the armed forces, vatican chiefs, leading
bankers, etc run by a man called Lucia Gelli. Its exposure and downfall are well
documented in many books such as 'God's banker'. One of its members, a banker called
Calvi, who betrayed the trust of the lodge, was found murdered in accordance with the
penalties sworn in the first degree. He was found hanging from Blackfriars bridge 'at low
water or a cables length from the shore where the tide regularly ebbs and flows twice in
24 hours' with chunks of masonry in his pockets.
The exposure rocked not only the Italian Government but also the Vatican.

The blood of Christ in secret Freemason ranking.
To drink blood from Freemason brothers mixed with something said to be the blood of
Christ. These are a few of the details from the, up to now, secret
ten-two ranking in the Swedish Freemasonry.
Scandinavian Freemasonry has always maintained that there are only eleven ranks, in
which the eleventh rank is purely a rank of honour within the Swedish freemasonry system
of ranking, (used only in Sweden and parts of Germany) But after recent media focus on
Freemasonry in Norway, it has turned out not to be the whole truth.
Behind the freemasons tenth rank is concealed an, up to now, unknown extra rank
called ten-two. Only a few of the freemason members are involved in this
secret rank. For instance in Norway only about 200 members out of 16,200 members are
inaugurated in this rank.
The sacramental cup legend.
It was first assistant university teacher, Sverre Dag Mogstad at Menighetsfakulteten, from
Oslo, who during the TV programme The Antenna hour in January 1993 produced a
document which showed that this secret rank existed. The Freemasons
grandmaster also confirmed that there is such a rank.
This so called sacramental cup legend plays an essential role in this rank.
Masons are told that this sacramental cup contains some drops of the blood of Christ. This
blood was said to have been handed over to the Freemasons during the middle
ages. This blood is kept in a glass bottle which also contains blood from Freemasons
who in times past, have been inaugurated into this ten-two rank.
The blood rite itself, takes place in the lodge chapel, under the lodge high prelate,
who in Sweden is the Bishop Eremitus. Some drops of blood from the cup are mixed with wine
together with some drops of blood from the candidate himself. The candidate and the lodge high priest then drink most of the cups contents
leaving some of the contents to be poured back into the cup. By doing this the lodge
maintains that this cup is forever containing the blood of Christ and the blood of
Freemasons, who through the ages has been part of this ten-two rank.
This is interpreted as a proof for the union between the freemasons and Christ.
