Point 12. Against Antichrist Freemasonry.
1. The Phalangist believes in Christ the Son of God; he hopes in Him and loves Him. He cannot tolerate the specious manoeuvres of those hidden powers which, alleging a free and tolerant humanism, have as their first aim the emancipation of the Christian peoples from the full sway of Jesus Christ’s goodness and love. It is easy to see that beneath this outward appearance of universal respect for and acceptance of all beliefs there lies in Freemasonry and its kindred organisations a poorly disguised and profound hatred of Jesus Christ. Such is the common denominator and the bond of their Satanic fraternity.
2. The Church is opposed with all her might to this Pelagian humanism, this Abelardian rationalism, and this hedonistic paganism of the Renaissance, for they make void the Cross of Christ.
Modern humanism, systematised by the 18th century philosophers and now the dominant opinion among Masonic societies of thought, is the heir of this naturalist, anti-Christian tradition. Its intention is to substitute Jesus Christ, God made man, with Man himself, the idea of Man, in which each can recognise and idolise himself, Man who makes himself god. The Creator can exist in this system, but only beyond the world and outside of society. One person is excluded, however, and with hatred: Christ, God come to reign over men. It is the cry of Voltaire: “ Écrasons l’infâme. ” [Let us crush the wretch.]
3. The 1789 Revolution brought this Masonic learning to power. Deified reason replaced religion; the republican trilogy “ Liberty, Equality, Fraternity ” was substituted for the three Christian virtues of faith, hope and charity. Finally, the charter of the modern world was solemnly promulgated, The Declaration of the Rights of Man, to thwart the Ten Commandments and the evangelical law of charity towards God and neighbour.
4. The Phalangist is the enemy and the target of the secret societies, in their boundless struggle, today fully victorious, against Christ. He combats their philosophical dogmas, their scientific pretensions and historical arguments; he denounces their occult organisations, their pressure groups and their political parties with their tireless philanthropic and cultural alibis. By all lawful means he seeks the banning and the disappearance of this Synagogue of Satan, for the universal triumph of Jesus Christ.
To all those who seek reconciliation and peace, he can only respond regarding the Freemasons, “ Why, then, do they not allow Him to acheive this? ”
