You'll find a post from the pseudonym "Revolutionary Spirits" below this one, called "Freemasons: Fact & Fiction."
Unfortunately for this blog, that post itself is full of fictions, including
---misidentifying certain Founders [Thomas Paine and Alexander Hamilton] as Masons
---and asserting that Masonry was some new, non-Trinitarian religion [although orthodox Christians such as Roger Sherman and John Hancock were Masons]
---and making unverifiable claims about John Desaguliers' theology---unverifiable on the internet via Google, or by Magpie Mason, a contributor to this blog who's well-acquainted with Freemasonry, or by a Mason history website.
Rev. Gary Kowalski's [Revolutionary Spirits] post was the epitome of worthlessness, if not near-complete fabrication.
I personally apologize for his historical and analytical sloppiness. He is entitled to his own opinion, but he is not entitled to make up his own facts. But he went to Harvard, you might say, and he even wrote a book that was well-reviewed by USA Today.
Heh. Beware "authorities."
We frequently disagree on this blog about our analyses and interpretations, but we never disagree about the underlying facts. That's what's been the heart and soul of American Creation, that we speak the common language of honesty and fact.
I've always been proud of being a contributor to American Creation and its unblemished record for historical accuracy and painstaking research of religion and the Founding.
This blog is first and foremost committed to presenting facts you can trust, hitting the books and the original Founding documents so our readers can analyze the facts for themselves and come up with their own opinions. Gary Kowalski has wronged that trust for his own reasons. Whatever those reasons may be, it's irrelevant. He does not respond to well-written comments and sincere questions about what he's written.
Dude's making stuff up to suit his own agenda. Sorry.
