I’ve written this as an introductory article on the connections between the secret society of the Illuminati & the Unitarian-Universalist (UU) movement & churches. Some of its foundational info comes from Chapter 2.4 of my Be Wise As Serpents (1991).
WHAT IS THE UU CHURCH? Before I begin exposing, it would be appropriate to do some explaining about the UU church. Even though Walter Martin in his Kingdom of the Cults calls it a cult, it fails to function as one. The church stands for “free thought”—free meaning basically free of Christian doctrine as its members are atheists, agnostics, pagans, humanists & new agers, and as we will see even Illuminati members. Perhaps its most famous member is Sir Tim Berners-Lee, who worked for the Br. Govt. & created the World Wide Web. The first web site was, by the way, built at CERN, & Sir Berners-Lee called its first server CERN HTTP daemon. The church was originally conceived as the union of two nearly identical denominations: the Unitarians (who rejected the Trinity & Christian doctrine) & the Universalists (who rejected the concept of sin & believe all mankind gets salvation). In line with their mega-ecumenicalism acceptance of all, after 9-11, they taught in their rel. education classes that Islam was not radical or dangerous. (The reality of Islamic teachings needs to exposed in a considerable article; others have youtube videos for those interested.)
GOAL OF ILLUMINIZED FREEMASONRY. “The three infamous assassins are Law, Property and Religion.” So says the official ritual of the 33 and last degree ritual of the Antient and Accepted Scottish Rite. An illuminized 33° Mason wrote “Once Religion is dead, Law and Property will fall to our mercy, and we shall be able to regenerate society by founding on the corpses of the assassins of man, Masonic Religion, Masonic Law, and Masonic Property.”(1) The creation of international communism was done by Illuminized Freemasons to achieve the goal of overthrowing religion (Christianity), substituting socialism for private ownership, and substituting their laws (replacing divine law). The destruction of these 3 so-called “assassins” of mankind was an Illuminati goal.
COMMUNIST UNITARIAN-UNIV. MINISTERS. There have been a parade of Unitarian-Universalist (from here on referred to as UU) ministers promoting communism & the goal of illuminized Freemasonry (& by extension the Illuminati’s agenda). John Lewis, a British UU minister, specialized in Marxist philosophy; & during WW2 he travelled & lectured for the Br. Army Education Corp teaching soldiers the blessings of having a Marxist ally (USSR) on the U.K.’s side. (He also was big into Boy Scouts, which has had a lot of Masons & Illum. leadership.) L.P. Jacks (1860-1955) was another prominent Br. UU minister who was close friends with the Fabian Socialists (an Illum. front). George Bernard Shaw, a Fabian Socialist & admirer of both Stalin & Mussolini was a friend of both L.P. Jacks (Lawrence Pearsall Jacks) and the UU minister of the Wash. D.C. UU All Souls Church, A. Powell Davies. A.P. Davies was famous for saying God is dead: “There is no God in the sky…There is no army of angels…” One more example of a socialist UU minister is Mila Tupper Maynard (1864-1926) who was a leader in Calif. of the Socialist Party & assoc. w/ the socialist utopian community in the Mojave Desert in Antelope Valley, CA.
ILLUMINIZED FREEMASONRY INTENDED TO CHANGE THE WORLD BY REVOLUTION. The book Occult Theocracy gives a good detailed background how so many of these revolutionary groups connected to the Occult Theocratic leadership (aka the Illuminati). She describes in detail the Illuminati member & revolutionist Giuseppe Mazzini. The Illluminati not only created revolutions throughout Europe, but wanted to split the U.S.A. Mazzini helped create the American Civil War by working with a secret group of 6 American UU ministers, who had created a secret group that they called the Bird Club. The Bird Club was created to create a revolutionary type of war in the U.S.A. Gerrit Smith of the Bird Club appears to have been an Illum. mmbr. Charles Sumner, a member of the Bird Club & a student of Freemasonry & revolution, made personal visits to occultic revolutionists in Europe, including Mazzini. He excited his fellow Bird Club members with his revolutionary talk.(2) Besides the 6 conspiring UU ministers of the Bird Club, Harvard Univ. associated with the UU church, brought in Illum. connected professors like Karl Follen of Giessen, Ger. Karl Follen helped create the Illuminati revolutionary front Bund der Jugend (League of Youth) in Europe. This League of Youth revolutionary group had links to the Carbonari & illuminized Freemasonry. These movements at times moved under the guise of the Swiss Bible Society. In August 1819, Christian ministers met at Carlsbad, Ger. & denounced the movement, which was then broken up by the arrests of its members. In late 1824, revolutionist Follen left Switzerland to be a Unitarian minister at Harvard. By the way, Harvard Divinity School in 1805 began teaching Unitarianism.
THE BIRD CLUB FUNDS JOHN BROWN. William Ellery Channing, who was a Freemason, Unitarian Minister, and abolitionist, rejected the Bible as untrustworthy & studied Illuminati philosophers being strongly influenced by Rousseau, Voltaire & others. The UU ministers’ secret society to foment revolution found a cold blooded killer/thief named John Brown. They sent him funds, supplies, & weapons to fight slavery in Bleeding Kansas, which was torn by civil war. They also sent him a professional revolutionist assoc. with the Illuminati, a Jewish Freemason named August (Anschel) Bondi. He fought with John Brown in the Kansas “battles” (butcheries) of Blackjack & Osawatomie. Before Bondi joined Brown, he had fought in the Illum./Masonic created Metternich revolution as well as the Masonic created revolution in Cuba against Spain. (The Scottish Rite’s New Age Magazine had an article describing how the Masons had started & led that Cuba revolution.)(3) Karl Marx was a reporter for the NY Times when John Brown attacked Harper’s Ferry, VA in an attempt to create a black slave revolt. Marx and similar reporters of the big newspapers made John Brown into a martyred hero. Certainly, slavery was an evil institution…but one can see the communist direction his sponsors wanted to go in, because after the Amer. Civil War they started some experimental socialist communities in the defeated south…which, by the way, all failed.
MASONIC BEGINNINGS. The beginning of the UU churches (before they joined denominations) is full of Freemasons and people in the elite occult bloodlines. Thomas Jefferson was both Illuminati & Unitarian. James Freeman was the first Unitarian preacher at a Boston church in 1784. John Biddle (1615-62) (of the elite Biddle bloodline) is created with being the Father of British Universalism. When Benj. Franklin was Grand Master of the Freemasons in PA, Thomas Oxnard, who began the Unitarian congregation at Portland, Maine, became the Provincial Grand Master for Freemasonry from 1743-54 for the entire North America. Early famous New Thought Unitarians who were also Freemasons are William Ellery Channing and Ralph Waldo Emerson, who began activity that led to the Bird Club. William Ellery Channing was a grandfather or granduncle of Freemason George Channing who help found Christian Science. Mary Baker Eddy, the dynamic founder of Christian Science, was of an Illum. bloodline and her descendant Hazel E. Billings, who came from a Masonic family, was an important member of the Illuminati in Portland, Oregon’s UU Church (on Stark St.). During like the 70’s & later, Hazel’s job was to receive orders from the Illuminati & transmit those verbally to Portland’s City Club, a non-profit group which holds forums on city concerns & has influence on Portland’s new policies. (Portland & Oregon are test sites for the PTSNB.) She would have Illum. connected Jesuits & Mormon come to her house. Many Illum. directives in modern times have been passed face to face.
MASONIC BEGINNINGS OF THE UNIVERSALIST CHURCH. My Be Wise As Serpents book exposed for the first time the tremendous connection between Freemasonry & the Universalist beginnings. The Freemason Hosea Ballou (who built upon the views of Freemason & atheist Ethan Allan and mystic Caleb Rich) began the Universalist church. The original 4 churches (called “societies”) began in the Woodstock area whose leading citizens joined it. In 1852, the Unitarian Reverend Theodore Parker praised the high ranking Mason Hosea Ballou (1771-1852) for having created “a revolution in the thoughts and minds of men more mighty than any which has been accomplished during the same period by all the politicians of the nation.” Richard Eddy wrote the best history of this movement. Just to give a few more prominent Masons involved in the early UU movement: The famous Albert J. Holden (another Freemason) was the pianist for the NYC UU church in 1841. Leon M. Birkhead and Howard M. Dow were Unitarian ministers who were also Freemasons. Sylvanus Cobb, Jr. was a Universalist minister & both a Knights Templar & Scottish Rite Mason.
MORE HELP FOR THE AGENDA. Building up knowledge of who have been Illuminati members has been a slow step-by-step process as it is the mother of secret societies…and they of course don’t publish membership lists. Still there are ways to track membership. Another way to view things is to simply monitor who helps their agenda. As I wrap up this short article, I want to point out Francis Ellingwood Abbot (1836-1903). Abbot is one of those surnames that is associated with the Illum. I have no idea if Francis Ellingwood Abbot was a mmbr. but he was a famous philosopher who attacked the Christian scriptures and said that theology should be based on science. He wrote “Scientific Theism”. He was a UU minister. Another philosopher, Charles Sanders Peirce, was Abbot’s defender. Both were influential.
