8. Anti-Mason Bibliography — 140+ Authors
Ironically, the best history of anti-Masonry is by law teacher and Past Master Alphonse Cerza, in his excellent, Anti-Masonry: Light on the Past and Present Opponents of Freemasonry (Fulton, MO: Ovid Bell Press, 1962; 410p).
Ironic again—these 140 represent the best in history. I am sure I missed some too.

Though dated, this was a significant and thorough study, not truly assuming but
nevertheless making Freemasonry a religion. There is some true scholarship like
few anti-Masons today; though his conclusion ties up into wicked Paganism with
an odd quote, the conclusion was not nearly as thorough or as well documented
as the rest of the history sections of this extensive article. For a Catholic
looking into Freemasonry, this would likely do the trick in dissuasion. It is a
powerful piece, though misses entirely to the good work of Freemasonry,
likewise is short on the legions of legends of honor, and does not adequately
address the good and noble ideals fostered by general Freemasonry. All that
said, it is an extraordinary internet piece that it is also fairly short (50
pages, huge in internet terms) that seems to be most cross-linked piece on Freemasonry
on the web today. See our comments in the book above. — Lists the following

Leadbeater, C. W. Freemasonry and Its Ancient Mystic Rites. Gramercy, 1998. 256p. I liked what Jorge G. Kreimer (Miami, FL), an Amazon.com reviewer, said about this book: “Leadbeater follows in the tradition of charlatan lunatics like Saint Germain and Cagliostro when it comes to Freemasonry. Unfortunately, most of the books out there either follow the ‘mystical’ lunatic line like this one, or the ‘paranoid’ demented line of conspiracy theorists. In any case, authors from both genres are the ones who end up profiting from the gullibility of those who take this sillyness seriously.” Erik Arneson (Ashland, OR USA) said, “Good old Leadbeater! You can always count on him to liberally mix fact and fantasy until the final product is better entertainment than education. If one wishes to learn the true meaning and history of Freemasonry, there are much better books out there. We did not come from Atlantis, and we did not descend from Egyptian mystery schools.”

National Christian Association (NCA). 1867f, began opposition in 1874 with Philo Carpenter, John Blanchard (first president of Wheaton College), and Ezra A. Cook. The Christian Cynosure was its regular publication, and in 1930 the auspices fell to the Synod of the Christian Reform Church and ceased to be published in 1982. The NCA published several anti-Mason works including in 1954 brochure, A Conspiracy of Silence, Freemasonry vs. Christianity, Jesus Christ Opposed to Secret Societies, Modern Prophets of Baal, The Devil’s Servants, The Pagan God of Masonry, The Worship of Secret Societies of Offered to Satan. Secrecy and Citizenship. The entire run of The Christian Cynosure, 1868-1984, is archived at Wheaton College Special Collections, Wheaton, IL. The collection contains lodge paraphernalia, correspondence, numerous rare books and pamphlets, pro and con, relating to Freemasonry and secret societies. All NCA material is available to researchers. See also, Augustus C. Welsh, Freemasonry on Trial, (Chicago, IL: E. A. Cook, 1895; 32p.).

Ronayne, Edmond. The Master’s Carpet or Masonry and Baal-Worship Identical (1887). Kessinger Pub., 1998. 406p. This volume is written by a Past Master of the Keystone Lodge, No. 639, in Chicago, Illinois. Here is an odd piece over a hundred years old that makes Freemasonry a Baal worship and is still available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and several other places on the internet (at higher prices than Amazon too). How can the anti-Masons miss this? It is written by a past master of the lodge as Christian father to warn his son and all brothers to help them move away. A Freemason will readily recognize that Ronayne knew much about Freemasonry, just at the Christian Freemason will recognize how he corkscrews the worst interpretation. A knowledgable Freemason will also wonder how a master of the lodge can go through all that it takes to become a master only then to discover his error and Paganism. How can Ronayne have worshiped and led worship as he says for so many years? That is a strange impossible for Ronayne to overcome. And he has articulated in many ways just what Bill Gordon, John Ankerberg, and James L. Holly have purported to discover. — Mason Oaths: Null and Void (1919). Kessinger Pub., 2003. 184p.. Or Freemasonry self-convicted.

Taylor, Harmon R. His www.biblebelievers.org/au site is a good example of purer anti-Mason propaganda, in which he tries to list every conceivable negativity in its worst light—no, in the dark—than makes a beeline to Satan. Even the regalia is attacked as though regalia itself was Pagan; no mention to how every single institution uses regalia (from academia to the military). He includes an intimation to one-world government conspiracies too, as he note “Growing list of some high-ranking members of the Free Masonry, the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderbergers, Rhodes Scholars, Trilateral Commission, Skull & Bones.” Someone said George President Bush was a member of the Skill and Bones, but that would need to be verified. This quote is another example where character does not count for the anti-Mason.
