Freemason news roundup

A couple of dispatches on how the freemasons have continued to remain controversial:
John Benefiel, head of the Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network in my home state of Oklahoma, on the Statue of LIberty: "You know where we got it from? French Freemasons. Listen, folks, that is an idol, a demonic idol right there in the middle of New York Harbor." (Citation here.) (His organization thoughtfully provides a "prayer of release from freemasonry." I'm also pleased that Oklahoma City's divorce from Baal has gone through.)

Meanwhile, Jesse Walker has spotted Marshall McLuhan's anti Masonic conspiracy theories.

Wow. The fundamentalist war on the Enlightenment continues. First they came for the Statue of Liberty, then they came for the First Amendment...
