The historical record is clear: George Washington was intimately connected with the Freemasons. He even prayed to the Mason's "Great Architect of the Universe." From his December 27, 1792 letter to Massachusetts Masons Grand Lodge, "I sincerely pray that the Great Architect of the Universe may bless you and receive you hereafter into his immortal Temple."
Interestingly these anti-Masonic, Illuminati fearing religious lunatics existed back then as they do today (and probably held more social and legal power then as well). And they pestered George Washington about his involvement with the Freemasons, leading him to lie about it.
When George Washington received a conspiratorial letter from one George Washington Snyder warning him about the Freemasons and their connection with the Illuminati, instead of replying [Clarence Beeks voice]"F*ck Off, Crackpot!"[/Clarence Beeks voice], Washington, ever conciliatory even to the point of lying, wrote:
I have heard much of the nefarious, and dangerous plan, and doctrines of the Illuminati, but never saw the Book until you were pleased to send it to me.9 The same causes which have prevented my acknowledging the receipt of your letter have prevented my reading the Book, hitherto; namely, the multiplicity of matters which pressed upon me before, and the debilitated state in which I was left after, a severe fever had been removed. And which allows me to add little more now, than thanks for your kind wishes and favourable sentiments, except to correct an error you have run into, of my Presiding over the English lodges in this Country. The fact is, I preside over none, nor have I been in one more than once or twice, within the last thirty years. I believe notwithstanding, that none of the Lodges in this Country are contaminated with the principles ascribed to the Society of the Illuminati. With respect I am &c.
But we know that Washington was far more involved with the Masons than "once or twice, within the last thirty years." Washington was a Master Mason who, when he died, was buried with full-Masonic rites.
