ranks. It was established in Williamsburg, Virginia (in William and Mary University), yet itsheadquarters today resides in Washington, D.C. During the 1830’s, people wanted to eliminatesecrecy from their proceeding after the Masons murdered William Morgan in September 11,1826 ironically. Therefore, in 1832, a group of members of the Class of 1833, led by AlphonsoTaft and future valedictorian William Russell, formed a society nicknamed “The Scull andBones,” modeled after the old Phi Beta Kappa and set up as a chapter of a German academicsociety. Taft and Russell disagreed with the Phi Beta Kappa’s policy of eliminating secrecyfrom its order.
That is one of the reasons on why they formed the Skulls and Bones. Yalehave other secret fraternal orders as well.
Now, it's easy to see connections between GreekLettered Fraternities and Freemasonry. According to ex-sorority member and Christian Gail Gray sheknew Alphas and Omegas who are Masons. Gail said that these people remarked that they felt asense of deja-vu when getting their Masonic degrees.
The three founders of Phi Beta SigmaFraternity are Leonard F. Morse, Abram Langston Taylor, and Charles I. Brown, two of whichwere Masons. Leonard Taylor was not only a Mason, but interestingly enough, he claimed to bea “prophet.”
Abram Langston Taylor was a 33rd Degree Freemason. This information can actually befound on the fraternity’s national website in the section that gives a biography of each founder. SomeFraternities and Freemasonry have similarities like: having poems and songs, having oaths, there ismedals and marks of office relating to heraldy, they claim to promote excellence & a spirit ofbrotherhood, each groups must have a memorization of things (
like percepts, history, moral stories,etc
.) in order to join, and they same similar titles plus officer positions, each do community "service" tokeep up the good reputation.
Both groups have dues to be paid, their ritual books are held ingreat respect, and there are secret handshakes (including hand signs to signify each group).
There you go. Alpha Phi Alpha has an oath that members swear when Jesus said to swear no oaths atall:
OATH OF SECRECY
I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR (or aver) TO KEEP ABSOLUTELY SECRET THE NAME AND WORKINGS OF THE ALPHA PHI ALPHA FRATERNITY, Incorporated. I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR (or aver), OF MY OWN WILL AND ACCORD, TO OBEY AND SUPPORT THE CONSTITUTION AND BY LAWS OF THE ALPHA PHI ALPHA FRATERNITY, Inc…………..” (Ritual of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.,Oath of Secrecy and Oath of Allegiance, page 6)
Fraternities and Sororities are entry level organizations in some cases into Freemasonry and other elitegroups. Many of those ruling the world today started out as members of Greek Lettered Organizations.Freemasonry is special writing about, because it harbors true deception. Freemasonry plainly claims to just want brotherhood among all men. They believe that they view all men as equal regardless of theirclass or religion. All men are indeed born equal. Masons readily are in charities, working with hospitals,and do other almsgiving. There is a catch though. The catch is that Masonic ritual have death oaths,there is Ecumenicalism (since Masonry believe that all men worship the same God if they areMonotheist. This has been said by Pike, Manly P. Hall, and other high level Freemasonry), theyembrace the occultism of the Kabbalah, and Freemasons admit that deception is placed on its lowerlevel members. The lower level members of Freemasonry are called the Blue Lodge. It's interesting tonote that the Masonic Temple always have the entrance in the West and the altar in the East. The Eastin the Bible refers to Sun Worship (Ezekiel 8:16-17) and the Scriptures also says that God resides inthe North. Even going further, the Bible says in the OT that the priest walked from east to west to gointo the Temple (or the Holy of Holies is in the West), while Freemasonry travels to the East. Thisoccult group of Masons are notorious for distorting or reversing biblical truths.
Not many people realize that many high level Freemasons either own or have great impact inthe food industry.Brother Nicholas Rivera made me known of these facts. For example, thefounder of Kentucky fired Chicken (or KFC) was Colonel" Harland David Sanders (September 9,1890–December 16, 1980).Col. Sanders was a 33rd Degree Freemason
Sanders was a mentorand a friend of Dave Thomas. See, the late Thomas not only founded Wendy’s, but he's a 33rd
