Masonic references in cinema.

How many of these movies have you seen? In the ones where the Masonic reference is not so obvious, did you notice the symbol or the reference made?

Check it out:

They mention "From Hell" It is based on an Allan Moore Graphic novel. Every thing I have read by him has Masonic reference in it. The references are unsurprising, everyone has heard of the Masons and most people think(at least a little) that they are some secret society ruling behind the scenes.

Masons have about as much political pull as lumberjacks or the Royal order of the Moose. Dont buy into the hype.

Rev. Chuck, the Masons are NOT a secret society. We are a society with some secrets. We do not try to conceal our existance. Go to any book store or library & you'll find books on us. Our lodges & Temples are marked as such on the outside of the buildings for all to see. We're even listed in the phone book.

Just as there are a plethora of books on UFO's & Alien abduction. Just because there is information out there, don't mean ALL the information is out, or that what is out is the truth.

'Scuse me, must get in the tin-foil tent... they're in my brain again!

ARRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHhhhh h h h h h h h!

The Masons are nothing in comparison to the Illuminati who are nothing in comparison to the Five Jew Bankers.

If masonry is free, why do they charge me money to fix my chimney?

Snap, Snap. Pay attention. What I said was that the Masons are very well known but many people consider them a secret society. Perfect for a movie "secret society" because you don't have to do fifteen minutes of background to bring the audience up to speed.
