On top of the slide that is happening in the Church of Englands morals with regard to sexuality in the church, apparently on the 18th February, Canterbury Cathedral will be hosting a service to “celebrate” 300 years of Freemasonry.
The Duke of Kent, who as well as being a patron of the Canterbury Cathedral Trust is also a Grand Master of the Freemasons, (or First Grand Principal, the Holy Royal Arch equivalent of the Grand Master in Craft Freemasonry). He will be the guest of Very Revd Dr Robert Willis, the Dean of Canterbury, who will be taking the three-hour service. In attendance also will be the heads of Freemasonry in Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
Freemasons in Kent, Sussex and Surrey raised £300,000 in an appeal for the restoration of the North-West Transept of the Cathedral.
Asked whether the service was linked to the donation, a spokesperson for the Cathedral apparently said: “Indeed.”
The Cathedral made the connection between the gift and the service in an “invitation on behalf of the Masonic Province of East Kent”, which states:
“Freemasonry has been pleased to support Canterbury Cathedral for many years, helping to fund essential repairs to the building, and the training of a number of apprentice stonemasons. To mark this three hundred year celebration, a major donation of £300, 000 has been made jointly by the Freemasons of Sussex, Surrey and Kent, to support the restoration of the Cathedral’s North West Transept. Three hundred thousand, to mark three hundred years.”
A spokesperson for the Archbishop of Canterbury declined to comment and referred queries to the Cathedral.
Well might he, decline to comment? What can he say about such an utter disgrace? One could say they might as well invite people from many other faiths to desecrate our churches… o they have already done this.
It appears that Masonic cash buys a lot of influence in the Church of England. Only a little while ago I was heating of a donation made by the Freemasons, for a costly, Savile Row clock, for conduction funerals.
