One of the most widely
recognized symbols in all of Shrinedom is the red fez. The Shrine fez,
adopted by the Shrine's founders in 1872.
As a Mason goes through the
32 degrees of the Scottish rite, he ends up giving worship to every
Egyptian pagan god, the gods of Persia, gods of India, Greek gods,
Babylonian gods, and others. As you come to the 17th degree, the
Masons claim that they will give you the password that will give him
entrance at the judgment day to the Masonic deity, the great architect
of the universe. It is very interesting that this secret password
Revelation chapter 9;11
it says, "The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star
that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the
key to the shaft of the Abyss [the bottomless pit]...and smoke came out
of the Abyss like that of a great furnace..." (It goes on to
describe those in the abyss, then continues) They had a king over
them, the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon..."
The 'angel' of the Abyss (Hell) is really the chief demon whose name is
Abaddon. Masons claim then, that the deity they worship is Abaddon!
In order for a person to
become a Shriner, he must not only go through all the degrees of Masonry,
make all those blood-curdling oaths, worship gods who are not gods except
they are of Satan, but he must make a blood both of allegiance to Allah as
his god and Mohammed as his prophet. The Shriner is then given a
red fez with an Islamic sword and crescent jeweled on the front of it.
This originates from 7th century Arabia when the Moslems, under the
leadership of Mohammed, slaughtered all Christians who would not
bow down to Allah. Allah, by the way, was not another (generic) name
given to God by Mohammed; Allah is the tribal deity --the moon god-- of
Mohammed; it was the name of the god in the tribe that Mohammed was born
into. That is why every mosque today has a crescent moon on the top
of its spire.
Now when Mohammed's army of
men, out to slaughter all the 'infidels', came to the city of Fez, in
Morocco, they found a community of Christians. After killing all the
Christians there with their Islamic-style swords, they took their hats
(called a fez) and dipped them in the blood of the Christians, and
wore the fezzes throughout the land glorying in their victory over
Christianity. Today Shriner's put on red fezzes (representing the
hats dipped in the blood of Christians) with the Islamic sword and crescent
showing their allegiance to Allah and Mohammed (and the defeat of
Christianity). Men in Obscene Red Fezzes!
