But what happens if masonry is anti-christian?
I would have to ask what you mean by "anti-Christian." From my experience, the vast majority of Masons are Protestants, and Masons in general seem to take the magical rituals and symbols with a grain of salt. Of course, it is a secret organization, so you can't really know what goes on if you aren't a member, but we also shouldn't give credence to any conspiracy theories.
If by anti-Christian you mean that they are out to get Christians or seeking to undermine Christianity in some way, I don't think there is basis for this concern.
But if by anti-Christian you meant that they espouse beliefs that are incompatible with Christianity, I completely agree with. Freemasonry is a deistic religion. But a lot of Protestants, apparently, disagree with the Catholic analysis, as Protestants are wont to do. And we must respect this.
