The number of Masonic lodges grew and membership increased. By 1826 it wasestimated that Masons in the United States numbered nearly fifty thousand, mostlyeducated and professional men
But in that year, one Mason broke ranks. Itbecame known that a Captain William Morgan of Batavia, New York, wasplanning to publish a book revealing the secret symbols, handshakes, oaths,and purposes of the Freemasons.
Morgan, a thirty-year member of the order,wrote, ‘the bane of our civil institutions is to be found in Masonry, already powerfuland daily becoming more so. I owe my country an exposure of its dangers.’ Beforethe book could be printed, Morgan and his publisher were kidnapped in Batavia.Irate friends and neighbors pursued the kidnappers and managed to rescue thepublisher, but Morgan was not so fortunate. He was never seen again.Years later, aMason named Henry L. Valance confided to his doctor as he lay dying that he andtwo other Masons had dropped Morgan into the Niagara River Valance said sincethat night he had suffered from a guilty conscience—‘the mark of Cain’—and soughtabsolution for his sin.”-Jim Marrs, “Rule by Secrecy” (217-8)
I'm not backing down from showing the truth from anyone. Movies, music, etc. can’t be blamed forevery incident of crime in America, but exposing evil forms of music, evil movies, etc. is certainlylegitimate in expressing ourselves.Also, cultural relativism (that harbors a more materialistic worldview. In other words, when you break down the moral code in society, society break down.
Thisoccurred in the Roman Empire when their morality was broken down viaabortion, slavery, the gladiator blood sport games, etc
.), bad use of antidepressants,mental health issues, and other problems have contributed to school violence and crime in general inAmerica. That’s a fact backed up by tons of research. More research document about how televisioncan manipulate minds.
Dr. Eric Peper, draws attention to his observations in that we do processwhat we see:
"The horror of television…is that the information goes in…It goes right into ourmemory pool and perhaps we react to it later but we don't know what we arereacting to. When you watch television you are training yourself…so later on,you're doing things without knowing why you're doing them or where they camefrom."
Australian researchers proved that watching too much television creates a dreamlike state in theviewer’s mind (in a type of sleep teaching that allows the subconscious to absorb imagery).The
February 2, 2009 reported on how watching too much television can makechildren not produce a better relationship with their parents. This research is found in asurvey produced for the Children’s Society. The researchers can found that over exposure cancause self esteem issues among children (
among 10-13 year olds
), because TV often portrayunrealistic images of everyday people and everyday society. That is why every time I cut back my television watching, my mind is working more succinctly, the synapses in my brain wasconnecting greatly, and I increase my personal intelligence. I don’t believe in federalgovernment censorship of everything in the country, but voluntarily we should watch whatwe see on TV.
It's so common to witness those in popular culture to embrace an anti-Godagenda. Even decades ago, famous personages said disrespectful things about God in public.
