Ukrainian Parliamentarian Suggests Jailing Freemasons

Ukrainian MP Taras Chornovil has suggested that the country’s parliament, the Supreme Rada, introduce criminal responsibility for Freemasonry, the MigNews web-site reported on Tuesday.

"…He has submitted to the Rada a bill entitled “On amendments to the Criminal Code of Ukraine”, according to which, membership of Freemason organizations, or any other organizations that require rituals and oaths of higher priority than the current law, must be punished by a jail sentence of up to three years.

The bill also reads that the members of Masonic organizations who are Ukrainian civil servants, law enforcers or military servicemen must be jailed for three to seven years.

Ukraine’s president, members of parliament, civil servants of ministerial rank, military servicemen and law enforcers of the rank of major-general or higher, if discovered to be members of Freemason organizations, may face up to 10 years in prison.

If the membership in a Masonic organization causes deaths, a threat to Ukraine’s national integrity or its defense potential, members of the organization must be imprisoned for 10 to 15 years, the bill reads…"

Why Mr. S, how thoughtful of you to remember that yesterday was my birthday. :slight_smile:

Incidentally, I never asked you whether you were at the Tridentine Mass at Ave Maria a few weeks ago. I wondered afterwards whether I had seen you there without realizing it. That schola that you guys have is something else. I was duly impressed.

Sounds like a few US Mason Founding Fathers are just what they need !

Obviously , they don’t want a democracy like ours -

I’ll buy your ticket - but only if you promise to stay over there…

Finally, one nation gets it right. If the opposition wins against the communist party backed by Putin, then things look on the bright side there.
