Around one-third of all the presidents of the United States have belonged to one of history’s most powerful of secret societies, the Freemasons.

This might sound like a statistic that is the fantasy and dream of any conspiracy theorist, but it is true. The Masonic lodges have long functioned as a combination of social clubs, charitable organization, and secret society. The Freemasons is a fraternal organization that has been in place since the 1700s at least and most likely it rose from the early modern organizations of stonemasons. The Masons have roots that go back to when King Solomon’s temple was being constructed.

Today there are numerous offshoots of Freemasonry, however, the branch that many people recognize requires that its members by men and they have to profess to the belief of the existence of a deity. Any conversations about religion and politics are said to be banned and each of the lodges must have a bible on display.

The candidates of the Freemasons have to get through three different degrees of craft to become Freemasons. First off they have to be initiated as an apprentice, then they have to move on to the level of Fellowcraft and then finally they are raised to be full blown Masons, should the people that are in the lodge already vote them in.

The Freemasons is a society that is mysterious and which has been said to take part in ancient rituals and the public’s perception of Masons generally range from one of fascination to fear. In fact, the first third party in politics in the US ran to try and bring Freemasonry down.
