But many voters know little about Romney’s faith. He is a Mormon, so supporters of the „Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.“ This denomination was founded in 1839 by Joseph Smith in the U.S. state of Illinois and proteges include the Vielweiberrei.
The Mormons were closely intertwined with Freemasonry, as a look into the „International Masonic Encyclopedia“ tells prepared by two Masons Eugene Lennhoff, Oskar Posner and the „non-Masons“ Dieter A. Binder. As it states: „Among the leading supporters of the new gospel was a whole number Freemasons, including Brigham Young and Hyrum Smith, brother of the ‚prophets‘ (Joseph Smith / GG), which unfolded in the Nauvoo Lodge diligent work in. the establishment ceremony was also the ‚prophet‘ self absorbed … by the Grand Master (later excluded (GG)) “
In 1844 the Grand Lodge of the masons Mormons declared as the angle boxes. „A short time later, it came as a result of the establishment of an opposition sheet in Nauvoo to the riots, during which Joseph and Hyrum Smith, imprisoned, and then the mob murdered. Under the leadership of Brigham Young walked the sect from it and founded the state of Utah on Great Salt Lake, Salt Lake City with a capital. Brigham Young was governor. Polygamy, which had been used by Joseph Smith, the state institution. “
The Grand Lodge of Utah shut their lodges for the Mormons. Nevertheless, the „Latter-day Saints“ adopted much of the Freemasons: so when recording acts of worship that goes on in several degrees forward, picked up many masonic symbols and ritualism. „The clothing that is created during the service, shows square and compass. These men and women wear kilts. At one point, the cult of action will cause the ‚devil‘ in the cylinder and masons apron, adorned with two columns and snakes. Initiation into the cult of saints, signs and grips also have analogies with the Royal Art (Freemasonry / GG) on … The similarities in Gebrauchtum be explained by the Mormons so that even a „prophet“ Smith intended the rebuilding of Solomon’s temple was. Finally .. have proven themselves the Mormons, Freemasonry under the ban, they will declare it as ‚an institution desTeufels self‘ … “
By the way: Brigham „Brian“ Young, Smith’s successor at the Mormons, was deposed in 1857 by U.S. President James Buchanan. This was even included in the 1816 Masonic „Lancaster Lodge“ (Pennsylvania) and was Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. „Under his presidency was held the Masonic dedication of the equestrian statue of George Washington at the Federal Capitol of the United States.“ And: Even George Washington, who had miterkämpft American independence, not only the first president of the United States, but also high-level Masons (General Grand Master) was. Introduced in 1752 in the „Fredericksburg Lodge No.. 1“ in Virginia, in 1788 master of the lodge „Alexandria“. „The oath by taking over the presidency of the United States in 1789 in Washington contributed to the Bible of the ‚St. John’s Lodge No.. 1‘, New York.“
The Freemasons call themselves Mormons so as a „sect“. If so, then they are probably an offshoot of the Freemasons, who have still Masonic ritualism and Smybole (and certainly a lot of thought) taken from them.
Mitt Romney, the most promising U.S. presidential candidate is, therefore, in these Mormons. Hence not a few warn him, as I in the second Part will explain.
