The Anti-masonry FAQ is intended to address issues of ignorance or
malicious misinformation. It contains verifiable and documented historical
events and facts. 

Anti-masonic writings, with a history dating to sixteenth century England,
can be grouped into two broad catagories: accusations of anti-Christian or
satanic objectives and accusations of political and social manipulation.
Both of these catagories rely on fraud, unfounded paranoia, historical
hoaxes, logical fallacy, and often the writings of the 18th century
anti-mason, John Robison; the confessed fraud, Leo Taxil; and the often
misquoted 19th century masonic author, Albert Pike.
