“We Catholics” have voted for anti-Catholic politicos, so whaddya mean “we Catholics”? George Washington spent an hour each morning on his knees before a chair holding a Bible from which he read and prayed. Washington wrote a letter affirming the sway of Freemasons, the very “Freemason lobby” Pope Francis mentioned 200+ years later; this in reply to a concerned missive from a preacher worried about Washington’s ties with Freemasons:
*Mount Vernon, October 24, 1798.
Revd Sir: I have your favor of the 17th. instant before me; and my only motive to trouble you with the receipt of this letter, is to explain, and correct a mistake which I perceive the hurry in which I am obliged, often, to write letters, have led you into.
It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am.
The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of seperation). That Individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder, or instrument employed to found, the Democratic Societies in the United States, may have had these objects; and actually had a seperation of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.
My occupations are such, that but little leisure is allowed me to read News Papers, or Books of any kind; the reading of letters, and preparing answers, absorb much of my time.*
In skirmishes with natives, they attested that their fine warriors unquestioningly plugged Washington and that the Creator must have had a hand in his survival, and were honored to surrender to him for that reason. Washington’s slave said he converted to Catholicism on his death bed, it is rumored; and Washington had a picture of Jesus Christ AND the Virgin Mary in his belongings as accounted after his death. There is the vision of General Washington relayed by his aide de camp about three wars on American soil relayed by a woman of stunning beauty crowned with the words “UNION.” The final war was a red cloud of death swamping the USA, and she barely survives this final assault. God bless America and saint if not Saint George Washington.
