The Freemason Lodges in America were still uncorrupted by the Illuminati takeover of the Freemason's underway in Europe in 1776. U.S.A. Freemason lodges wouldn't become totally infected by the Illuminati until the early 1800's...
Just plain ignorant.
Franklin and the American faction BROKE TIES with English Freemasonry by founding the Free & Accepted Masons.
Aaron Burr's machine took back the country in 1800 with his rise to VP with the degenerate Jacobite Jefferson.
1826, Morgan Affair. Almost all decent masons left the order at that time. Many people joined the anti-Masonic party. Jackson and Van Buren were both promoted to president through the Scottish Rite British loyalists afterwards.
There can be NO comparison between the masonic revolutionaries and the masonic order in place today.
Consider that Jesus was a mason (the "stone") but also in conflict with the order (Acts 4:11) - this is the situation of the founders. They knew the secrets of masonry (history, collective consciousness), but rebelled against the agenda.
George Washington was in the Illuminati, as were many founders. They were FOR spreading enlightenment. The masonic order HATES a burning candle without a lampshade.
