Reader comment on item: Knights Templar Trial Records Made Public – After Seven Centuries
in response to reader comment: truth about Masonic Templar pretenders

Submitted by Chev James (United States), Jul 7, 2010 at 04:34

The thread is old, but worth commenting upon. Yes, the "Archbishop" Gary Beaver lost in court. Chev. McGrath did, indeed, best him by doing nothing but telling the truth.

Today, however, our enemies are not Masons. As Pogo said in that famous comic strip that bore his name, "We have met the enemy, and he is us."

One day I hope that I can reconcile with Chev. McGrath concerning out past differences. There are plenty of real enemies out there--enemies of Christianity, enemies of civilization. We need to close ranks and fight our real enemies--not ourselves.
