Statue of Confederate General Albert Pike Burned in Washington, D.C.
The 11′ tall statue of prolific Freemason and Confederate General Albert Pike was pulled down, spray painted and then burned in our nation’s capital on Juneteenth, 2020. Pike’s was the only Confederate General statue in Washington, DC and it was paid for by the Freemasons after the Masons lobbied the government to provide them with the land.
It is only logical that Bro. Albert Pike would be much more popular in the Southern United States. Freemasonry and especially Scottish Rite seem to be much more popular in the South than here in the West.
Part of the allure of Freemasonry is the connection it provides to historical figures such as Albert Pike and Bro. George Washington. One of the forces driving me to become a Freemason are the images of historical figures wearing their Masonic regalia.
What’s Next, Editing & Revising Morals and Dogma?
To be honest I never finished reading Pike’s most famous Masonic text, Morals and Dogma. Maybe I should just wait for a new politically correct and edited version of Pike’s seminal tome.
