William Cooper's Mystery Babylon: Part 36 – Rose Cross College, Part I

Transcribed by wakingup72 @


You're listening to the Hour of the Time. I'm William Cooper.

[Carolyn Nelson]: And I'm Carolyn Nelson.

Tonight, folks, we're going to take you directly to Phoenix for tonight's metal report with Gene Miller. Good evening, Gene.

[William Cooper does a commercial for Swiss America Trading]

Now I'm going to let you on a few little secrets that you need to know [sic]. Delta. Delta, the name of the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet. In form, it is a triangle, and was considered by the ancient Egyptians a symbol of fire and also of God. And the Scottish and French systems, and also that of the Knights Templar are delta is the unspeakable name. INRI -- in effect, Jesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum, which means, "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews," the inscription which was placed upon the cross of the savior. In the Philosophical Lodge, they represent fire, salt, sulfur and mercury. In the system of the Rosicrucians, they have a similar use: IGNE NATURA RENOVATUR INTERGRA, which literally transfer [sic] means, "By fire, nature is perfectly renewed." This idea is also found in the degree of Knights, Adepts of the Eagle or the Sun. Don't go away.

[reading from A Rose Cross College]:

(start quote here):

From the Rose Cross College, [which is] a resume of the teachings and proceedings of the Rose Cross College during its session held in the month of October, 1916, on the Four Hundredth Anniversary of the founding of the Order. The Imperialistic Council and Venerable Order of the Magi, its instructions and the Official Degree 'Priests of Melchizadek.' The 'Knights of Chivalry and Order of the Holy Grail', edited by R. Swinburne Clymer, October and copyrighted 1917, published at Beverly Hall, Quakertown, Pennsylvania:

At the close of the June Convocation of the Rose Cross Order and Sacred College, it became evident that a Convocation of the Sacred College and Order of the Magi would be necessary in October in order to continue the work and commemorate the foundation of the Rose Cross Order, dating from the year 1516.

On the second day of June, special letters of invitation were mailed to all members privileged to be present at the October Convocation, and arrangements started so that not only might lectures be given every day during the entire month of October while the College was in session, but that Ancient Degrees "Sons of Osiris" might be conferred as they had been during the month of June upon the delegates then present.

Information had been received at headquarters from different sources that men, without any authority whatever, were using the name of the Magi; men who were not, and never had been, on the rolls of the Order. Acting upon this information it was considered best that special effort should be made to convene the Order during the Sacred College session and when convened the official degree "Priests of Melchizadek" should be conferred upon all who were eligible.

During July it became evident that if the work, in several large cities, were to go forward, leaders should be officially ordained. With this in view, the following notices were mailed to the
members [of] the Royal Fraternity Association, Incorporated.

[Headquarters, August 2nd, 1916.]

My Dear Brother,

In accordance with the power vested in me as President of the
Royal Fraternity Association, Inc., and at the request of the Order
of the Illuminati, Degree "Knights of the Rose Cross," I herewith
invite you to be present at a special sessions of the Association
to begin October 1st and end October 30th, 1916.

At this special session of the Association, a convening of the
Sacred Rose Cross College shall be called, and besides the regular
work of the College when in session, the special work of ordaining
two members of the Fraternity, namely, Mr. Charles C. Brown,
Buffalo, N.Y., and Mr. A. W. Witt, Kansas City, Mo., in accordance
with the provision in the By-Laws of the Corporation, to wit:

"This Incorporation shall have the power to call a Convocation
at any time, and when so convened, shall have the power to select
teachers, and to ordain such teachers to the ministry, as shall in
their opinion, be fitted for the position. And such ordained men shall
have the power and the right, to officiate at weddings and at funerals,
and possess all such other powers as ministers of God usually possess."

In accordance with the laws, made and provided for in our
Corporation, we issue this invitation that you may be present.

God be with you.

Fraternally yours,
(Signed) R. Swinburne Clymer, President.

All arrangements having been completed during the months of July, August and September, the delegates began arriving on the last day of September, and on the first day of October nearly all had arrived who were to be present during the first session.

On October the second, the Sacred College was called to order and lectures being given in the forenoon, afternoon and evening of each day, by those who had prepared papers.

Before the morning lecture a private session was held, presided over by Charles C. Brown of the Buffalo College, and conducted in the manner of the private classes at College in Buffalo, N.Y.

On the evening of October 11th, all the delegates repaired to the 'Grove of Osiris' where the three degrees "Ancient Mysteries of Osiris" were conferred upon those delegates not previously initiated. The music, especially prepared for the entire ritual, being furnished by Miss Daisy T. Grove of Buffalo, N.Y.

After these ceremonies all repaired to the Hall where a dinner was served to all.

On the night of the twelfth of October, the delegates met in the Rose Cross Chapel, and after the Imperialistic Council and Venerable Order of the Magi had opened in due form and finished its official business, the official degree "Priests of Melchizadek" was conferred upon all those present.

Following the conferring of this degree, the Council closed, and a special official session of the Royal Fraternity Association, Incorporated, was called to order.

After the opening of the business session of the Association, the official letter, mailed to members, was read by the acting Secretary, Miss Vera H. Barr, and approved by officers and members present. It was then moved and seconded that Mr. A. W. Witt of Kansas City, Mo., should be ordained to the Ministry, in harmony with the Corporate powers.

Mr. Witt was called upon to make his confession of faith and allegiance to the Church of Illumination, and to read the thesis prepared for that purpose. The ordination in due form followed.

After the ordination of Mr. Witt, the following resolutions, passed by the officers of the Corporation in special session on March 10th, 1916, were officially approved by all members present:

"First. Because certain people without authority from this Corporation, or from the true Rose Cross Order long established in America, [(x)] have started organizations, calling themselves Rosicrucian, but without any Rosicrucian teachings and directly in conflict with Rosicrucian laws and usages, it has become urgent that the Royal Fraternity Association shall issue a certificate of membership, good for one year, to every student who enrolls with any one, or other, of such Orders or Fraternities.

"The fee for such membership certificate shall be twenty-five cents, to cover cost of issue and clerk hire.

"At the expiration of one year the holder thereof shall make application for a new certificate. All such certificates shall be on record in the office of the President of the Corporation.

"Any student, expelled from the Order, makes void his certificate, unless re-instated.

"Any member of anybody in fraternal relation with the Royal Fraternity Association, may (on the payment of a fee of twenty-five cents) have a certificate issued to him, recognized by the fraternities affiliated with this corporation.

"These rules are to go into effect immediately."

It is regrettable that such rules and regulations are necessary. Not less than six different associations have sprung in existence, calling themselves Rosicrucian, without a shred of Rosicrucian teachings, and three other associations, calling themselves Magi or Melchizadek, without any authority of any Magi, and all of them years after the institution of the legitimate bodies. Furthermore, when six members of the Black Brotherhoods have enrolled in the true Fraternities within a year, to gain secrets to be used by the Black Brotherhoods, we realize the importance of strict rules. For this reason the Royal Fraternity Association, as a protecting body, became a necessity.

Following the session of the Imperialistic Council of the Magi and the session of the Royal Fraternity Association, a midnight dinner, the October "Feast of the Gods," was partaken of by those present.

On the night of October 13th, after the opening of the official session of the Corporation, the following resolution, voiced by the Chairman, and seconded by Rev. A. W. Witt, was passed:

"Under the Royal Fraternity Association, during the Convocation of the Sacred College, that the order of the Knighthood, known as 'Knights of Chivalry, Order of the Holy Grail' be reinstituted. That at this meeting on Sir Knight should be created by the Grand Sir Knight, and that this Sir Knight should select his Lady for the coming year, and that during the year following this Sir Knight should select men either within or without the Order; that at the next June Convocation of the Sacred College such men, selected by him, and not more than nine, attend the Sacred College Convocation and be created Knights, those in turn to select their ladies, wither from within or without the Order, but from within if possible. Only men of the highest standing to be selected; men of the highest moral character, men chivalric towards womanhood. Each man must study, and be familiar with, the 'labors of Chivalry' legends of the Holy Grail, or Holy Grail, and the Golden Fleece.

"After the first year that a certain number of men, worthy of the honor, be selected, also ladies to the same number, the total of men Knights not be to exceed one hundred and ninety-nine during the first seven years.

"That the first one to be selected and created a Sir Knight be August Rhu [William Cooper: spelled R-H-U], M.D., of Marion, Ohio, because of high attainments in his profession and the favorable aspects of the Heavens to his nativity, and of the Prophecy made by those who know.

"Biography: August Rhu, [(Roux)] Marion Ohio. Specialty, Surgery and Gynecology. Born in Seneca County, Ohio. Graduated from Western Reserve University, Medical Department, Cleveland, Ohio, 1885. Fellow American College of Surgeons, 1914. Yearly Special Course in Surgery and Medicine since 1885. [He's also an] Author."

Immediately upon the passing of these articles, Dr. Rhu was created a Sir Knight, and selected as his Lady in waiting for the year, M. Alice Reese, of Kansas City, Mo., who was then knighted as a lady.

R. Swinburne Clymer as Grand Sir Knight was ordered to prepare Rules and Regulations for the Sir Knights after Ancient usages.

On the fifteenth day of October, the first session of the Sacred College came to a close and the delegates returned to their homes. The officers remained for the second session.

The second session of the Sacred College was called to order on the sixteenth of October, at which time the delegates had arrived for the second session. Lectures at once began and continued the rest of the month.

On the evening of the seventeenth of October, those present repaired to the 'Grove of Osiris' and had conferred upon them the "Ancient Degrees of Osiris" in like manner as that conferred upon the delegates of the first session.

The midnight dinner, "Feast of the Gods," followed the conferring of the degrees, followed by the usual social session.

On the night of the eighteenth of October, the delegates and officers repaired to the Rose Cross Temple, and after the Imperialistic Council of the Magi had come to order, the Ancient Degree 'Priests of Melchizadek' was conferred upon them.

After closing the Temple in due form, and official session of the Royal Fraternity Association, Incorporated, was called to order. Charles C. Brown of Buffalo, N. Y., was brought before the session and requested to make his confession of faith and allegiance to the Church of Illumination and read his thesis. He was then ordained to the ministry in due form.

After Mr. Brown had been ordained and the business of the Corporation brought to a close, a dinner was served to those present.

Lectures continued thrice daily, which a special session each forenoon led by Rev. C. C. Brown, until the night of October 24th, when word was received that Joseph A. Walter 32 degree of the Buffalo, N. Y., Consistory A. A. Scottish Rite, a Brother of the Order "Fraternity Sons of Osiris," would arrive that day.

On his arrival the Imperialistic Council and Venerable Order of the Magi convened and Ancient Degree "Priest of Melchizadek" was conferred upon Mr. Walter, followed by the official dinner in his honor.

Of the lectures give during the month of October, only a limited number can be given in this book.

The dedication service to the used in all ceremonies of ordination to the ministry in the Church of Illumination, was prepared by the writer some years ago, and symbolic of the Path taken by the Neophyte desiring to reach Illumination.

The article concerning the Magi and the work on the Order of Knighthood, with exceptions as noted, are from the same pen.

With the exception of "The Church of Illumination" the thesis prepared by Rev. Charles C. Brown, no other lectures were given by him as he conducted the private classes during the time of the Convocation.

"Our Work" as prepared by Rev. A. W. Witt as his thesis for ordination. The "All Seeing Eye" is by the same writer.

The lecture "Origin of Symbolism" and "Eugenics as taught by the "Sacred College" are by Grace Kincaid Morey, a graduate of Oberlin College, Secretary of the Royal Fraternity Association, Incorporated.

"The All Seeing Eye" is by Wayne E. Cake, who has given the subject consideration from the standpoint of a Mason.

"Eugenics" a lecture by Clara Witt, the acting Secretary of the Rose Cross College of Kansas City, Mo., a writer on Eugenics and the Sacredness of Motherhood in the various Masonic magazines of the middle West.

"Obedience," a lecture by M. Alice Reese, who was knighted as Lady to August Rhu, before mentioned.

"The Christ Birth" is a lecture delivered by Vera H. Barr on the teachers of the Kansas City College and assistant to Rev. A. W. Witt.

"The Power of Thought" by Mrs. John W. Cook, should have careful consideration by all students as we recognize that thought is the base of all action

These are by very few of the many lectures delivered during the sessions of the Sacred College and are given because they are fundamental and show the practical scope of the Great Work.

The next Convocation of the Sacred College is called for May 15th, 1917, to be held in three sessions.

Besides the regular lecture course, all the Ancient Degrees will be conferred and in addition the Temple of Philition Degrees.

Fraternally given,

R. Swinburne Clymer.

Ladies and gentlemen, what you're going to hear tonight is going to be just the beginning of the revelation that those who believe in a master race, those who believe in the theory of white supremacy, those who believe that the Anglo-Aryan race, or the true Israelites, will discover that they have been conned. They have been scammed and they are part of an attempt to destroy the United States of America and bring the world, once again, under the rule of Great Britain. So you had better pay attention.

The doctrine...the doctrine of Christian identity, ladies and gentlemen, and of the British Israelite stem directly from the mysteries. It is one of the biggest scams that have ever been put across to the American people and all you who are taking part in it. All you who are taking part in it are, for all intents and purposes, calling Jesus Christ a liar. You are also helping in a great plan to destroy this great nation and bring about a one-world totalitarian socialist government upon the face of this earth. And if you listen carefully and take notes, and if you go to the sources that we give you, you will discover this on your own.

And if you study your own history if you are of Aryan or Anglo descent, you will discover there is no Hebrew root in your language. You will discover that your ancestors were primitive, fierce, terrible tribesmen, who indulged in human sacrifice and worshiped the sun in temples such as Stonehenge. And if you're smart...if you're smart you will join with all those people in the world who want freedom, irregardless [sic] of their race, color or creed. You will stop buying in to the Hegelian dialect of divide and conquer, in which they separate us, feed us lies and send us off to kill each other while they place the chains about our ankles.

Don't go away, ladies and gentlemen. I'll be right back after this very short pause.

(break music: partial audio - live recording of a female speaking)

Well, if you think that's not important or has any bearing on what you're hearing, ladies and gentlemen, continue to listen. Take the doctrine out of your head that you don't want to hear the facts, because you already know what you believe. Take the pin labeled, "Archie Bunker," off of the front of your shirt and throw it in the trash can, and pay attention and get smart and wise up. Stop being sheeple.

The Order of the Holy Grail.

[continuing reading from A Rose Cross College]:

(start quote here):

Few people are acquainted with the fact that the flower of manhood in France and England belong to knighthood founded ages ago, their object being the recognition of, and the homage due, womanhood. These Orders bear the names of "Knights of the Garter," in England, whose insignia is the Garter, and "Knights of France," represented by the Fleur-de-lis.

Both these Orders were founded [ladies and gentlemen] by men belonging to an older and nobler Order, "Knights of the Holy Grail," who took advantage of a trivial circumstance to establish these Orders for the protection of womanhood. Though the Knights were in search of the Holy Grail, (their own soul) they were ever ready to fight for their country, for womanhood, and the sacred Mysteries. Other Orders, dating back many periods of time, under different names and emblems, entertained the same high-minded, chivalric motives.

The motto of the "Knights of the Garter," "Honi soi qui mal y pense," translated reads, "Evil to him who evil thinks." This phrase fell from the lips of Edward III, as he pinned the garter (guard-her) to his arm. To the initiated, this motto takes on a deeper meaning. In its most exalted purity, it was used by Knights centuries before the Christian Era.

The garter is a feminine emblem, supposedly unseen, unless by accident. A mishap to a noted Countess caused the garter to become the insignia of one of the great Orders in history. The greatest movements of an age often appear accidental. The Fleur-de-lis is also an emblem of woman, and most of the symbols of the present, and earlier ages, are characteristic of the "eternal feminine."

Centuries before Jesus walked the earth, members of sacred and honorable Orders held the lignum sacred. In time the lignum worship became degraded, not by the members of these Orders, but by the people who came to understand something of the outer mysteries, and degraded them. The faith of both Christian and Catholic devotees is symbolized by emblems of sex. The Christian cross indicates the male, and the heart, that of the opposite sex. Both cross and heart are creative, or Phallic, emblems.

There is nothing greater or higher in the Universe of God than creative power. The power that can create can also recreate and regenerate. If we honor the Creator, why not the created, creation?

All the wisdom-philosophy underlying the Knights of the different Orders, and the mythologies, was based upon creative power.

Probably the most beautiful and purest of mythological stores, is that of Eros and Psyche, the story of the Soul and its earth career. As all Sir Knights are expected to read mythology, it is not necessary to give details, but simply call attention to the esoteric meaning of this supposed myth.

Aphrodite, (Venus), they fairest queen in the Greek Heaven of the Immortal Gods, was subject to pride and jealousy, and demanded homage because of her sex and beauty.

Psyche, (the Soul) untainted by sin, was possessed of a beauty far more attractive and compelling than the mere physical beauty of Aphrodite. The inference is plain. They were rivals.

In her innocence, Psyche worshipped Artemis, (purity) the deity of virgins. She had no desire to attend the festivals of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, because she knew not of love and beauty. This gave offence, not only to the priestess, but to her parents as well.

The parents, called by us temptation, which is the beginning of all knowledge, induced her to appear before the goddess in all her purity and innocence. The worshippers fell down before her. Such obeisance to another beauty roused the anger and jealousy of Aphrodite, who vowed vengeance on the radiant Psyche. Not having sinned, only listened to temptation, Psyche was really not subject to punishment. The Soul that listens to the voice of the flesh, is not necessarily punished for that which follows but, because of passive resistance, it permits itself further temptation.

Aphrodite, symbol of earth-mother and procreation, resented the adulation bestowed upon innocence. If the worship of men turned from the priestess of love and passion to that which was chaste and immaculate, how could she people the earth and there-by obtain new worshippers.

Brooding over this condition, she called her son Eros, (Cupid), the God of Love, that beautiful emotion which enters into the heart of all created things, and bade him seek Psyche and arouse in her the desire of love and passion. She commanded him to keep himself inviolate, not taking into consideration the great law of the universe which demands a just return for all things given or received. Eros, God of Love, the Law of Love itself, retired to do his mother's bidding.

Meanwhile, Psyche was lamenting the fate of her loneliness. The maidens about here were being taken in marriage, which she, the fairest, was left uncourted. Like the soul that listens to temptation, she had become an inhabitant of the realm of unrest and longing. No longer single-minded in her worship of Artemis, she was not yet possessed with the desire of love and passion, that state of feeling that would transform the worship of the gods into a longing to possess her. Eros was commissioned to bring this about.

The temptations not resisted in the life of the soul, bring about the unhappiness to which it is subjected. But, at the same time, it is the fate of temptation to bequeath knowledge to the soul. Obedience to the tempter results in wrong-doing and sorrow, but it opens the way to wisdom and light.

Before the edict of Aphrodite could be carried out, she decreed that Psyche should leave the abode of the gods. When the soul, in its untried purity, listens to temptation, it closes the doors of heaven against itself and must then prepare for its journey earthward. Death is its portion or, as Psyche was told, she would espouse a monster.

When the soul first comes within the influence of the earth-life, it is not conscious of the restrictions of matter, nor the laws that confine it there. Psyche awoke to a new existence. To her surprise she found herself surrounded by a realm of beauty, with the promised monster nowhere in sight. But her happiness, her content was of a passive nature, for though banished from the heaven of innocence, she was not awakened to the power and thralldom of passion. Not having actually sinned she was not in possession of the knowledge of self. She heard the call of love, but saw no form. In answer to her question, Eros answered that it was Love, her husband.

The perplexed Psyche could not be satisfied with mere assurances of love. The insistent call of the imprisoned soul of knowledge, though all the senses, demanded recognition. She must see love. Love without passion does not satisfy mankind. It is a state of feeling, undemonstrated. The urge in man must know, see, feel and possess.

Eros informed Psyche that, because of an unalterable decree, she would never behold his face. Only in darkness could he come to her, only in secrecy could she know his embrace.

To accept love as it is offered, to live surrounded by love, with thoughts unmixed with doubt or suspicion, would life the soul to the heaven of happiness and immortality. Man, in his attempt to dissect and analyze, opens the way of grief and pain, worry and fear, doubt and misfortune.

As darkness falls, or as the soul sinks deeper into the realm of matter, it feels the presence of unseen shapes about it. Fear contends with Love, which passion awaits nearby. But Eros, Love, makes himself heard through the veil of flesh, and whispers:

"Fear not, though the darkness of night surround thee, (flesh covering the soul), I am with thee. My love shall sustain and protect thee. No matter where thou goest, to heaven or hell, thou art mine, my beloved, as I am thine, for I am Love, the delight of the world, the giver of life."

With love in the soul there is nothing to fear. When the soul is supported by love, evil is powerless. Love not only gives life, not only bequeaths youth, health and strength, but moulds and perfects mankind.

As Psyche received Eros, Love, a thrill of joy passed through her. She opened her arms to the tender form of the lovely youth, and cried: "Who art thou that takest pity on one doomed to be a sacrifice to the most terrible monster of the demons of hell?"

Eros answered: "Fear not the monster of whom the oracle spoke. I am thy husband. I am he before whom both gods and fiends have reason to tremble."

Love, supreme, is the husband of the Soul. It may lead its spouse to the innermost shrine of heaven; its shadow, lust, may lead to the lowest round of hell. So often mistaken for love, lust roams the earth, seducing, betraying, destroying womanhood. This unspeakable evil was the demon, the dragon, the monster for which the Knights of the Grail were banded together to slay.

Psyche, still fearful, replies: "Why, it thou art death, that fearful ruler of the land of shades, whom even the mighty Zeus dreads, why comest thou in so pleasing a disguise? Thy voice is music, thy breath the perfume of roses, and the touch of thy lips enraptures me. What shall I call thee?"

The answer of Eros, "Call me Love," is a light set in the midst of darkness. Love diddipates the blackness and unreality of death, disintegrates carnal, sensual desires. The love-encircled soul is able to resist destroying passions. It slays the dragon in its sacrifice to gain that which is real. Interpreted in another way, Death, in the pleasing disguise of reward and release, kisses the lips of the weary, bids the Soul fear not, and liberates it from the thralldom of earth.

Love presides at birth, for through it the Soul descends to earth and its consequent experiences and lessons. Love presides at death, for through it the Soul ascends to freedom, peace, joy.

"O Love and Death, O Death and Love,
How wondrous kin ye are!
The Planet Venus thus at once
Is evening and morning star.

"O Love and Death, O Death and Love,
Life ended, Life begun.
The sun may rise, the sun may set,
'Tis still the self-same sun.

"Life's problem here at last is solved.
Step in: the door's ajar.
"O Love and Death, O Death and Love,
How wondrous kin ye are."

Psyche and Eros lived happily together, even tho the strangeness of life caused her momentary fear. The Soul, surrounded by the darkness, the unreality of earth, seems bound to question the promises of Love. Still, unless haunted by the phantoms of doubt and suspicion, the Soul retains a general state of peace and happiness.

But as time passed, the variety and newness of love waned. Doubt and suspicion became easy to entertain. Eros granted Psyche entire freedom in the selection of her guests, stipulating only that he be not questioned. The generosity and goodness of Eros roused the phantoms to a more spirited action. They urged her to insist upon knowing whom her husband really was. Surrounded by secrecy, how did she know that he was wholly hers. Could she depend upon him to supply her every need? With these questions and inferences, they opened the door to the most deadly of the phantom sisterhood, jealousy.

The carnal mind, insisting upon proofs that can be seen and felt, refuses "unseen verities." Mind, immersed in materiality, prefers a chaos of fact and objectivity, to a cosmos of harmony and beauty.

Eros, noting the perplexity, uncertainty, and unrest of Psyche following the visits of the fiends disguised as friends, warned her. "I beseech thee to be on thy guard, not only for the sake of our happiness, but because of the child, Immortality, thou shall bear me. If thy guests importune, torment and worry thee to discover my identity, and thou succumb, I shall leave thee. It is beyond my power to oppose the will of the gods."

Psyche replied that with him near, happiness enveloped her; his touch filled her with aspiration and trust, his voice, as wings of faith, lifted her to the realms of peace and security. But often she felt alone, and the group of sisters, tho ugly, entertained her.

It came about that inquisitiveness and fear were added to the brood that daily haunted the heart Psyche. Surrounded by their influence, Eros has helpless. Tho possessed of the power of the gods, Love cannot dwell in the heart of suspicion.

At last, unable to resist the combined influence of the demons, Psyche was persuaded to take her lamp, steal quietly into the chamber of Eros and gaze upon the face of her beloved. As it lay revealed, a drop of oil caused him to awaken.

At the instant of revelation, beholding a being of wondrous youth and beauty, she knew her fears, doubts and suspicions to be groundless. At the moment of realization that she had possessed all that heart and life could desire, because of a broken law, it was taken from her. The fiend of disobedience had completed her undoing.

"Psyche, Psyche, thou hast betrayed me. Now must I leave thee. Alone shalt thou suffer from the intrigues of thine enemies."

Eros and Psyche parted. Love and Soul were divided. In other words, Soul because of questionings, unbeliefs, doubts, unrest, severed itself from the heaven of faith, peace and happiness. This is the story, (and the reason) of the pilgrimage of the Soul on the earth-plane. How often is this story repeated in the homes of thousands today. Faith, security, happiness, bartered for doubts, suspicions, jealousies.

Psyche, adrift, despairing, was bereft of all things but hope. Having discovered the destructive power of evil thought she turned about to win back the love, the heaven, she had forfeited.

To human justice, it would seem that now Aphrodite, (Divine Law), would relent, having witnessed the undoing of Psyche. Not so. The pain and suffering and longing of Psyche could in no wise mitigate her punishment. "Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing." To have reinstated Psyche among the gods would presuppose a power greater than Law which could nullify, or soften, its own edicts. Law is not annulled when all is lost through disobedience. Through pain and travail does one gradually win back their lost estate.

Psyche called upon all the gods to aid her in recovering Love. Her prayers and supplications failed to reach that high heaven, for a broken law becomes an impenetrable wall between an entreaty and its fulfillment.

Hera, wife of Zeus, Queen of Heaven, and knowing all things; that goddess who dwelt near earth and presided over married life, pitied Psyche, saying: "Would that I could present thy petition unto Zeus, mighty ruler of all men. That cannot be, for the word of Aphrodite is powerful, and her decrees inviolable. Thou hast brought about this, thy fate. Endure the trials that shall come upon thee. Believe thou shalt dwell again in heaven. Work out thine own salvation."

Psyche, whose one desire was to recover the delight and happiness of the past endured the trials, accepted the punishments, passed the tests imposed upon her. As the reality of the statement became apparent to her, that "To the Soul without love, all is empty and hopeless," she turned, as to a friend, to the god of death, that monster whom she had most dreaded, and begged him to take her to the realm of Hades. The performance of that journey was the extreme penance for disobedience. In the willingness to suffer death; in the willingness to be purged of all sin, she brought about her release. She had paid the uttermost farthing.

Hearing of the voluntary journey of Psyche that she might regain Love, Eros flew to her assistance, liberating her from the Stygian slumber, awaking her to life, and love, and youth.

"Ah Psyche, thou almost perished to atone for my fault. Knowest thou not that only the gods can pass and repass the River Styx? To them it is a fountain of youth, but if mortals drink of it, it binds them to the wheel of birth and death. The gods recognize they expiation and bid thee drink of this cup of Immortality."

Had Psyche reproached Eros for her unhappiness; had she refused to place the cause of her sin and suffering upon herself; had she given up the search for lost Love, the usual fate of mankind would have been hers. Unhappiness, poverty, worry, sickness, stagnation, death are the result of ceasing to search, to struggle, to conquer.

The Soul forfeits Love and Immortality though disobedience. It achieves Love and Immortality though faith and trust and loyalty.

"Death is the problem of life, but Love is its solution."

The search of the incarnate Soul for Immortality through the instrumentality of Love is typified in the search of Knights for the Golden Fleece, of the Holy Grail.

The legend of Eros and Psyche may be interpreted as the Soul in search of love and immortality enduring anguish and suffering caused by the sins of fear, doubt, suspicion and disobedience. Other legends, as unfolded in this series, will outline and reveal those inner meanings, the significations of which are of importance to the students of knighthood and chivalry.

Ladies and gentlemen, this scenario has been played throughout the history of man. It is never changed; there is always someone who believes that they are the master race. That they're the only ones fit to rule, and they intend to enslave everyone else -- even of their own race, for their motto is: If you are not one of us, you are nothing.

Ladies and gentlemen, in the material passed out by James "Bo" Gritz -- "Grits" here, we call him "Bobo Grits" -- Lieutenant Colonel James "Bo" Gritz, in his spiked training advertisement literature, in his spiked video, you will see that spiked is spelled -- and I left it up to many of you to learn what it is on your own; some of you did, most of you did not -- S-P-(penis of Osiris)-K-E. S-P-(obelisk)-K-E. S-P-(phallus)-K-E. S-P-(stupid sheeple)-K-E. You had better wake up out there, and you had better do it really quick.

I'll be back, folks, 9 P.M. Pacific, 10 Mountain, 11 Central, and midnight Eastern Standard Time. Don't miss it, and if you do, tape it, and if you can't tape it, order the tapes from us.

Good night, and God bless you all.

CNN's Rick Sanchez Calls Jon Stewart a Bigot

Rick Sanchez: Jon Stewart A 'Bigot,' Jews Run CNN & All Media

UPDATE: Rick Sanchez has been fired from CNN.

"Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well,' a CNN statement said.

UPDATE: Rick Sanchez did not appear on Friday's "Rick List," the afternoon after his controversial comments about Jon Stewart and Jews surfaced. Sanchez's regular substitute Brooke Baldwin filled in for him.

ORIGINAL POST: CNN's Rick Sanchez made controversial comments on a Sirius radio show Thursday, calling Jon Stewart a "bigot" and saying that CNN and the other networks are all run by Jewish people.

Discussing Stewart with radio host Pete Dominick, Sanchez said that the "Daily Show" host has a limited worldview, and called him a "bigot."

The conversation began with Sanchez decrying "elite, Northeast establishment liberals" who "deep down, when they look at a guy like me, they see a guy automatically who belongs in the second tier, and not the top tier.

"I think to some extent Jon Stewart and [Stephen] Colbert are the same way. I think Jon Stewart's a bigot," he said. "I think he looks at the world through, his mom, who was a school teacher, and his dad, who was a physicist or something like that. Great, I'm so happy that he grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could ever imagine."

New Internet Censorship Bill Introduced

By Stephen Lendman

Like most others in Congress, Senator Patrick Leahy is no progressive. He voted to fund imperial wars, regressive Obamacare, Wall Street-friendly financial reform, and other pro-business measures, including agribusiness-empowering bills, harming small farmers and consumers.

Now he's at it again. On September 20, he introduced S. 3804: Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA), "A bill to combat online infringement, and for other purposes." Referred to committee, it awaits further action. In fact, it needs a dagger thrust in its heart to kill it.

According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Richard Esguerra:

If enacted, this bill lets the Attorney General and Justice Department "break the Internet one domain at a time - by requiring domain registrars/registries, ISPs, DNS providers, and others to block Internet users from reaching certain websites."

Two online blacklists will be created:

-- one for web sites the Attorney General may censor or block, and

-- most disturbing, domain names the Justice Department decides (without judicial review) are "dedicated to infringing activities."

The bill doesn't mandate, but "strongly suggests" that second category domains be blocked "as well as providing legal immunity for Internet intermediaries and DNS operators" that do it willingly at the behest of authorities.

Without question, "tremendous pressure" will be applied to comply, the alternative perhaps being recrimination for refusing.

Though fairly short, COICA may dangerously impair free expression, "current Internet architecture, copyright doctrine, foreign policy," and more. In 2010, "efforts to re-write copyright law (targeting) 'piracy' online" have been shown "to have unintended consequences."

Like other 2009 and 2010 bills, COICA "is a censorship bill that runs roughshod over freedom of speech on the Internet," an outrageous First Amendment violation by "tr(ying) to define a site 'dedicated to infringing activities,' (by) block(ing) a whole domain," not that one part alone if legally proved, rather than by government edict.

The 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) "already gives copyright owners legal tools to remove infringing material piece-by-piece." It also lets them get injunctions requiring ISPs block infringing offshore sites. Misusing these provisions "have had a tremendously damaging impact on fair use and free expression."

If enacted, Leahy's COICA will take a giant leap, "streamlin(ing) and vastly expand(ing)" existing damage. It'll let the Attorney General shut down domains, including their "blog posts, images, backups, and files." As a result, "legitimate, protected speech will be taken down in the name of copyright enforcement," and basic Internet infrastructure will be undermined.

For example: when users enter web site URLs into their browsers, the domain name system server identifies their Internet location. COICA will let the Attorney General "prevent the players in (those) domain system(s), (possibly including your ISP) from telling you the truth about a website's location."

It's also unclear what would be accessed - perhaps a message saying "a site or page could not be found, without explaining why? Would users receive some kind of notice," possibly saying "the site they were seeking was made inaccessible at the behest of the government?"

COICA will force Internet "middlemen" to act like the "Internet doesn't exist," even though the site or page wanted "may otherwise be completely available and accessible."

Like many other pre and post-9/11 bills, COICA is police state legislation. It says America "approves of unilateral Internet censorship," no matter that it's constitutionally illegal.

America is on a fast track toward despotism, civil liberties threatened by bills like COICA, mandating "Unilateral censorship of websites (Washington) doesn't like...."

Moreover, its "poorly drafted definitions....threaten fair use online, endanger innovative backup services, and raises questions about how new (Internet intermediary) with existing US secondary liability rules and the DMCA copyright safe harbor regime."

Also, it's easy to get blacklisted because COICA streamlines the procedure for adding domains - "including a McCarthy-like (one) of public snitching." Then, once on, it's hard getting off, just like persons unfairly vilified struggle to regain their reputations, often without success.

COICA takes but doesn't give in letting Washington "play an endless game of whack-a-mole, blocking one domain after another," even though sophisticated users will figure out a way to access censored sites. Maybe them, but not ordinary ones denied free access to constitutionally protected information.

Bottom line - COICA lets Washington "suppress truthful speech and could block access to a wealth of non-infringing" material. It will do little to end online infringement, but plenty of constitutional damage, besides other vast erosion in recent years heading toward ending democratic freedoms unless public awareness gets aroused enough to stop it in time.

On September 29, Tech Daily reported possible COICA changes, "addressing some of the concerns raised by technology and public interest groups," pertaining to online piracy and counterfeiting. COICA remains a work in progress. What emerges in final form demands close scrutiny.

Obama's Proposal to End Online Privacy - Another Police State Measure if Enacted

Merriam-Webster defines a police state as follows:

"a political unit characterized by repressive government control of political, economic, and social life usually by an arbitrary exercise of power by police and especially secret police in place of regular operation of administrative and judicial organs of the government according to publicly known legal procedures."

In other words: overt and covert hardline control, maintained by loss of personal freedoms, civil liberties, and constitutional protections though legislation, pervasive surveillance, lawless privacy intrusions, and midnight or pre-dawn arrests on whatever grounds authorities charge against which there's no defense.

In the last decade especially, America has recklessly gone that route, one government edict, pronouncement or congressional bill at a time. Obama has advanced the Bush agenda further for totalitarian control, including the right to imprison anyone for their beliefs, assassinate American citizens extrajudicially, and much more.

Since taking office, he's done the impossible, compiling a worse record than his fiercest critics feared, exceeding Bush in militarism, harshness, lawlessness, and betrayal of the public trust. Besides waging imperial wars, he wrecked the American dream, and hardened a police state apparatus to protect privilege from progressive change. He also waged war on free expression, dissent, due process, judicial fairness and privacy rights.

He calls heroic activism "violent extremism" and persecutes Muslims for their faith and ethnicity. He says anti-war supporters are anti-American, providing "material support to terrorism," a serious charge carrying 15 years imprisonment. It's why former Reagan administration Assistant Treasury Secretary, Paul Craig Roberts, says "the Bush and Obama regimes" wrecked the country. "America, as people of my generation knew it, no longer exists."

But wait, the worst is yet to come, including subverting privacy, what former Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis called "the most comprehensive of rights, and the right most valued by a free people." The Fourth Amendment and numerous laws embody it, requiring judicial warrants for most searches and seizures. Yet today's sophisticated technology enables lawless intrusions, absent congressional legislation prohibiting them.

New legislation, however, may mandate them, according to an Electronic Frontier Foundation alert saying:

"an Obama Administration proposal (will) end online privacy as we know it by requiring all Internet communication service providers - from Facebook to Skype to your webmail provider - to rebuild their systems to give the government backdoor access to all of your private Internet communications."

Planned legislation, so far not introduced or named is expected in 2011, the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT) saying "Federal law enforcement and national security officials are preparing to seek sweeping new regulations for the Internet, arguing that their ability to wiretap criminal and terrorism suspects is 'going dark' as people increasingly communicate online instead of by telephone."

CDT's vice president, James Dempsey said:

"They are really asking for the authority to redesign services that take advantage of the unique, and now pervasive, architecture of the Internet. They basically want to turn back the clock and make Internet services function the way" telephones work, making them simple to wiretap the same way but do it online digitally.

Currently, the 1994 Communications Assistance to Law Enforcement Act requires broadband networks to have intercept capabilities to permit digital and cellphone surveillance. However, for encrypted messages, ISPs must be ordered to unscramble them because they're not covered under the 1994 law. Further, providers can't unscramble some encrypt messages between users.

As a result, proposals may include the following:

-- mandate that communication services, including foreign-based ones doing business in America, have full unscrambling technology capabilities; and

-- require peer-to-peer software communication developers to redesign their intercept capabilities.

These ideas not only fly in the face of a free society, they contradict a congressionally-ordered 1996 National Research Council report that found back door access bad government policy, its committee chair, Professor Kenneth W. Dam, saying:

"While the use of encryption technologies is not a panacea for all information security policies, we believe that....our recommendation would lead to enhanced protection and privacy for individuals and businesses in many areas, ranging from cellular and other wireless phone conversations to electronic transmission of sensitive business or financial documents."

"It is true that the spread of encryption technologies will add to the burden of those in government who are charged with carrying out certain law enforcement and intelligence activities. But the many benefits to society of widespread commercial and private use of cryptography outweigh the disadvantages."

Further, according to government records, encryption rarely subverts law enforcement, statistics showing few case examples. In 1998, crytography expert, Professor Matt Blaze, questioned the technical capabilities of back door access. Now he says:

"This seems like a far more baffling battle in a lot of ways. In the 1990s, the government was trying to prevent something necessary, good and inevitable. (Now) they are trying to roll back something that already happened and that people are relying on."

Blaze added:

"We need to protect the country's information infrastructure....So how do you reconcile that with the policy of discouraging encryption broadly," or making it vulnerable to surveillance. Hackers and other experts have the same capabilities as government. Mandate back door access, and they'll find a way to block or otherwise subvert it.

According to computer expert Peter Neumann:

"The arguments haven't changed. 9/11 was something long predicted and it hasn't changed the fact that if you are going to do massive surveillance using the ability to decrypt - even with warrants, it would have to be done with enormously careful oversight. Given we don't have comp(uter) systems that are secure, the idea we will have adequate oversight is unattainable. Encryption has life-critical consequences."

Current and possible new legislation worries organizations like the CDT and its efforts "to keep the Internet open, innovative and free," what's fast eroding in America and may soon entirely dissappear. Apparently like Bush, Obama is committed to assuring it unless mass public outrage stops him. Even so, a kinder, gentler America "no longer exists."

Some Final Comments

On September 27, Tech Daily writer Eliza Krigman headlined, "Net Neutrality Bill Gives FCC No New Rulemaking Power," saying:

Leaked House Energy and Commerce Committee (chaired by so-called liberal Henry Waxman) draft bill information aims to subvert Net Neutrality, according to an unnamed source saying:

"This bill represents a giant retreat by some of those who claim to support net neutrality and sends the wrong signal to the FCC (that) will ultimately deal with this issue."

If enacted, it will let cable and telecom giants establish, among other provisions, premium higher-priced lanes (two Internets), effectively destroying Net Neutrality, subverting the last free and open space. Dirty politics and back room deals put the Internet up for grabs to the highest bidders, creating a two-tiered system, besides blocking entry for those who can't pay.

Waxman hopes for passage in the lame duck session. So far, efforts to advance Net Neutrality legislation have stalled, some congressional leaders saying anything this year is doubtful.

Post-election, cybersecurity will also come up in the form of a bill combining earlier ones introduced:

-- S. 773: Cybersecurity Act of 2009, and

-- S. 778: A bill to establish, within the Executive Office of the President, the Office of National Cybersecurity Advisor

Information on them can be accessed through the following link:

The revised measure will let Obama shut down parts of the Internet, as well as businesses and perhaps organizations, not complying with national emergency declared orders. Specifically, his order will last 30 days, renewable for another 60 before Congress may, if it wishes, intervene.

At issue, of course, is whether government can unconstitutionally regulate, restrict, censor or suppress online free expression, the direction Congress and the administration are heading.


Computer worm attacking Iran's nuclear facilities 'includes Biblical link to Israel'

Israel has been linked to a complex worm currently attacking computers in Iran, which experts claim may have been designed to target the country's nuclear facilities.

The Stuxnet worm, supposedly aimed at slowing Iran's desire to create a nuclear arsenal, appears to include a reference to a Biblical story in which Jews pre-empt a Persian plot to destroy them.

The New York Times reports a file inside the Stuxnet code is named 'Myrtus' - a reference to the Hebrew word Esther, the same name as the Old Testament book in which the story appears.

Suspicion over the origin of the computer worm, which appears to have been created to disrupt Tehran's nuclear programme, has fallen on both Israel and the U.S in recent days.

Iran said this week that Stuxnet is continuing to mutate and wreaking havoc on computerised industrial equipment.

The AFP news agency claims the worm has been designed to attack systems commonly used to manage water supplies, oil rigs, power plants and other industrial facilities.

No one has yet claimed credit for the virus though, with the U.S. denying responsibility.

TShai Blitzblau, the head of the computer warfare laboratory at Maglan, an Israeli company specialising in information security, also told the New York Times he was 'convinced that Israel had nothing to do with Stuxnet'.


William Cooper's Mystery Babylon: 35 – From Babylon to Christianity

Transcribed by John Galt (edited and formatted by wakingup72 @


You're listening to the Hour of the Time. Well, folks, I'm here, relaxed. My tonsils, my larynx, are completely laid back. And we're supposed to have a guest tonight, but so far he hasn't called. Carolyn is in studio with me, and I don't know what we're going to do because he was supposed to call at about three minutes 'til, and the phone has not rung yet. So, I don't know if we're going to have a guest or not. So, we'll go right in to a little pre-warm-up here, and see if we can just sort of wait a few minutes to find out what in the world is going on. Notice how calm, cool, and absolutely collected I am tonight? Isn't it wonderful?

(Opening music - unknown orchestral piece)

Well I don't know what happened, ladies and gentlemen, but we have no guest. So we go to plan B. You should always have a plan B, and sometimes a plan C, and D and E, and sometimes even plan F. But tonight, we only have plan B.

[reading from Babylon Mystery Religion, written by Ralph Woodrow]:

(start of quote)

The Mystery Religion of Babylon[, ladies and gentlemen,] has been symbolically described in the last book of the Bible as a "woman arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication." [The phone not now. This is insanity -- absolute insanity.] "And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH" [and that's from Revelations, Chapter 17, verses 1 through 6].

When the Bible[, ladies and gentlemen,] uses symbolic language, a "woman" can often symbolize a church. The true church, for example, is likened to a bride, a chaste virgin, a woman without spot or blemish ([check Ephesians, Chapter 5, verse 27, and Revelations, Chapter 19, verses 7 and 8]). But in striking contrast to the true church, the woman of the text is spoken of as an unclean woman, a defiled woman, a harlot. If it is correct to apply this symbolism to a church system, [ladies and gentlemen, then] it [becomes] clear that only a defiled and fallen church could be meant. In big capital letters, the Bible calls her "MYSTERY BABYLON."

[Now,] when John wrote the Book of Revelation, Babylon -- as a city -- had already been destroyed and left in ruins, as the Old Testament prophets had foretold ([and you can find that in Isaiah, Chapter 13, verses 19 through 22, and Jeremiah, Chapter 51, verse 52]). But though the city of Babylon was destroyed, [folks,] religious concepts and customs that originated in Babylon continued on and were well represented in many nations of the world [William Cooper: and exist in secret right up to this very day]. [Now,] just what was the religion of ancient Babylon? How did it all begin, and what significance does it hold in modern times? How does it all tie in with what John wrote in the Book of Revelation...

[William Cooper: ...if at all? How many of you were aware that the Iraqis have been busy for many years rebuilding the city of Babylon?]

Turning the pages of time back to the period shortly after the flood, men began to migrate from the east, "and it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there" (Genesis[, Chapter 11, verse 2]). It was in this land of Shinar that the city of Babylon was built and this land became known as Babylonia [and] later as Mesopotamia.

[William Cooper: Originally, it was a part of the Syrian -- the Assyrian, the Assyrian -- nation.]

[Now here, here, ladies and gentlemen, is where] the Euphrates and Tigris rivers had built up rich deposits of earth that could produce crops in [great] abundance. But there were certain problems[, you see,] the people faced. For one thing, the land was overrun with wild animals which were a constant threat to the safety and peace of the inhabitants ([and you can check for reference Exodus, Chapter 23, verses 29 and 30]). Obviously anyone who could successfully provide protection from these wild beasts would receive great acclaim from the people [William Cooper: for all people in all times seek security].

It was at this point that a large, powerfully built man by the name of Nimrod[, Nimrod,] appeared on the scene. He became famous as a mighty hunter against the wild animals. [And] the Bible tells us: "And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty HUNTER before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord" ([Genesis, Chapter 10, verses 8 and 9]).

[Now,] apparently Nimrod's success as a mighty hunter caused him to become famous among those primitive people. He became "a mighty one" in the earth -- a famous leader in worldly affairs. [In] gaining this prestige, he devised a better means of protection. Instead of constantly fighting the wild beasts, why not organize the people into cities and surround them with walls for protection? Then, then why not organize these cities into a kingdom? [William Cooper: What a great idea.] Evidently this was the thinking of Nimrod, for the Bible tells us that he organized just such a kingdom. "And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Caleh, in the land of Shinar" ([Genesis, Chapter 10, verse 10]). The kingdom of Nimrod is the very first [government] mentioned in the Bible.

Whatever advances may have been made by Nimrod would have been well and good, but Nimrod[, you see,] was an ungodly ruler. The name Nimrod[, ladies and gentlemen,] comes from marad and means, "he rebelled."

[William Cooper: Sound familiar? Wasn't Lucifer an angel of light, with tremendous knowledge who rebelled against God, and was thrown down to the Earth to be the ruler of the material world? Well, the word Nimrod means "he rebelled."]

The expression that he was a mighty one "before the Lord" can carry a hostile meaning -- [you see,] the word "before" being sometimes used as meaning "against" the Lord. The Jewish encyclopedia says that Nimrod was "he who made all the people rebellious against God."

[William Cooper: That's taken directly out of the Jewish encyclopedia. Let me say it again for you, "he who made all the people rebellious against God."]

The noted historian Josephus wrote: "Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God...He also gradually changed the government into tyranny, seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God....the multitudes were very ready to follow the determination of Nimrod...and they built a tower, neither sparing any pains, nor being in any degree negligent about the work: and, by reason of the multitude of hands employed in it, it grew very high...The place wherein they built the tower is now called Babylon."

[William Cooper: And those who built it were called "The Builders." And they still exist, ladies and gentlemen, today.]

Basing his conclusions on information that has come down to us [throughout] history, legend, and [in] mythology, [a man by the name of] Alexander Hislop has written in detail of how Babylonian religion developed around traditions concerning Nimrod, his wife Semiramis, and her child Tammuz.

[William Cooper: Now, Alexander Hislop wrote this -- the results of his research -- in a book called The Two Babylons. And I suggest strongly that you make every attempt to get that book and read it. It will open your eyes if you have an understanding of the symbology of the esoteric religion of Mystery Babylon and the secret societies today, which I have revealed to you through the Mystery Babylon series on this radio broadcast. It is important that we understand who these people are, and what they believe. It makes no difference whatsoever whether you believe it or disbelieve it. If they hold the powerful positions of the world, if they are pulling the strings that make you dance, then whatever they believe affects you. Make no mistake about that.]

[Now,] when Nimrod died, according to the old stories, his body was cut into pieces, burned, and sent to various areas.

[William Cooper: Sound familiar? We've discussed this same story before. You see, the first religion is also the last religion, and it has been every religion in between in various aspects and various forms. It has never changed.]

His body was cut into pieces, burned, and sent to various areas. Similar practices are mentioned even in the Bible ([Judges, Chapter 19, verse 29; 1st Samuel, Chapter 11, verse 7]). [And] following his death, which was greatly mourned by the people of Babylon, his wife Semiramis claimed he was now the sun-god [S-U-N, sun-god]. Later, when she gave birth to a son, she claimed that her son, [spelled S-O-N,] Tammuz by name, was their hero Nimrod reborn.

[William Cooper: And this again has been played out throughout the mysteries, and throughout every religion throughout the history of the world. Now don't misunderstand me, ladies and gentlemen. I'm in by no means casting any slander or dispersion on any religion that any of you may be practicing. I'm making no suggestions that you should not be a part of whatever religion you belong to. I'm merely delivering a message of the truth to you all.]

The mother of Tammuz had probably heard the prophecy of the coming Messiah to be born of a woman, for this truth was known from the earliest times ([and you can check Genesis, Chapter 3, verse 15]). She claimed her son was supernaturally conceived, and that he was the promised seed, the "savior."

[William Cooper: And she gave the first recorded virgin birth to her son, who was Nimrod reborn from his wife/lover/mother. Tammuz was the child's name, and he was called the promised seed or the "savior."]

In the religion that developed, however, not only was the child worshiped, but the mother was worshiped also!

Much of the Babylonian worship was carried on through mysterious symbols -- [you see,] it was a "mystery" religion. The golden calf, for example, was a symbol of Tammuz, son of the sun-god [Nimrod].

[William Cooper: The calf, or the bull, was actually the symbol during that age of the astrological house through which the sun was moving. It was called, and still is called, Taurus the bull. Later, when the sun moved out of the house of Taurus and into the house of Capricorn, then the golden calf became the ram, or the goat, and was worshiped in the temple of Mendes, and to this day it is known as the goat of Mendes.]

[William Cooper: Now, every once in a while I slow down for you to make sure that this sinks in, that you really understand what I am telling you. For it is important, ladies and gentlemen, that we stop being deceived and led by our nose. Those who are the puppet masters rely upon us to remain puppets. It is my intention to bring you out of the toy box and into the real world.]

Since Nimrod was believed to be the sun-god or Ba'al, fire was considered as his earthly representation. [William Cooper: Fire was considered as his earthly representation.] Thus, as you shall see, [folks,] candles and ritual fires were lighted in his honor.

[William Cooper: And the priesthood was known as "the Philosophers of Fire." They had a habit of burning their enemies, and they still do that today.]

In other forms, Nimrod was symbolized by sun images, [by] fish, [by] trees, [by] pillars [or obelisks], and animals.

[William Cooper: For you see, if he was the sun-god, he was the source of all life on this Earth. He was the source of all warmth. He was the source of all energy. He was the generative force, and his symbol was the phallus, or the obelisk. One was erected by our forefathers in Washington, D.C.]

Centuries later, Paul gave you a description which perfectly fits the course that the people of Babylon followed: "When they knew God, they glorified him not as God...but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an IMAGE made like to corruptible man, and to birds and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things...they changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the CREATURE more than the CREATOR...for this cause God gave them up into vile affections" ([Romans, Chapter 1, verses 21 through 26]).

[Ladies and gentlemen,] this system of idolatry spread from Babylon to the nations...

[William Cooper: Do you know what "nations" translates to in the original Hebrew and Greek? It is the word we know as "gentiles." You see, the nations are the gentiles. Does that surprise you? So, the gentiles were not corrupted until the system of idolatry spread from Babylon to the nations—to the gentiles.

...for it was from this location that men were scattered over the face of the earth ([and you can find that in Genesis, Chapter 11, verse 9]). And as they went from Babylon, they took their worship of the mother and child, and the various mystery symbols with them.

[William Cooper: And the mother was known as the "Goddess of the Sea" at a later time. The sea was called the "Mare", and the goddess was called "Mary."]

Herodotus, the world traveler and historian of antiquity, witnessed the mystery religion and its rites in numerous countries and mentions how Babylon was the primeval source from which all systems of idolatry flowed. Bunsen says that the religious system of Egypt was derived from Asia and "the primitive empire in Babel." In his noted work[, folks,] Nineveh and its Remains, Layard declares that we have the united testimony of sacred and profane history that idolatry originated in the area of Babylonia -- the most ancient of religious systems. And all of these historians were quoted by Hislop [in his book, The Two Babylons] .

When Rome became a world empire, it is a known fact that she assimilated into her system the gods and religions from the various pagan countries over which she ruled. Since Babylon was the source of the paganism of these countries, we can see how the early religion of pagan Rome was but the Babylonish worship that had developed into various forms and under different names in the countries to which it had gone.

[Now,] bearing this in mind, [folks,] we notice that it was during this time -- when Rome ruled the world -- that the true savior, Jesus Christ, was born, lived among men, died, and rose again. He ascended into heaven, sent back the Holy Spirit, and the New Testament church was established in the earth.

[William Cooper: Now, looking at those early days of the Christian Church, all of the members were saints. They were all equal unto each other—all of them. It must have been glorious to be a part of that, and break away from the old to something that gave a promise, a promise of a better life. You see, in those days life was terrible. It was uncertain at best. No one knew when they woke up in the morning if they would live to see the nightfall. And it was that uncertain every single day. And all of a sudden, there was a promise. There was a promise.]

[You] only have to read the Book of Acts to see how much God blessed his people in those days. Multitudes[, ladies and gentlemen,] were added to the church -- the true church.

[William Cooper: It doesn't exist anywhere today except in small pockets of individuals who meet with each other in Christ's name. All of these organized religions have bastardized the teachings of Christ -- have corrupted the teachings of Jesus. And most of them are helping to lead you into slavery in the New World Order.]

[In those days,] great signs and wonders were performed as God confirmed his word with signs following. True Christianity, [ladies and gentlemen,] anointed by the Holy Spirit, swept the world like a prairie fire.

[William Cooper: Nothing could stop it; no matter how many Christians the emperor crucified, no matter how many Christians were thrown to the animals in the Roman circus, one hundred fold sprang up to take their place.]

[This movement] encircled the mountains and crossed the oceans. It made kings...tremble and tyrants [fearful]. It was said of those early Christians that they had turned the world [literally] upside down! -- so powerful was their message and spirit.

[William Cooper: Now, I'm talking about the true Christian teachings of Jesus Christ, in the way that it was followed in the early days of Christ's Church -- not Rome's church, not Baptist's church, not Lutheran's church, not Orthodox's church, but Christ's Church.]

Before too many years had began to set themselves up as "lords" over God's people and places of the Holy Spirit. Instead of conquering by spiritual means and by truth --

[William Cooper: By truth! Not too many people in the world understand what truth even means today.] in the early days -- men began to substitute their ideas and their methods...

[William Cooper: place of the teachings that Christ gave us. The Inquisition came from these people, not from Jesus Christ. The Crusades came from these people, not from Jesus Christ.]

Attempts to merge paganism into Christianity were being made even in the days when our New Testament was being written, [folks,] for Paul mentioned that the "mystery of iniquity" was already at work [...already at work], [and he] warned that there would come a "falling away" and some would "depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils" -- the counterfeit doctrines of the pagans ([2nd Thessalonians, Chapter 2, verses 3 through 7; 1st Timothy, Chapter 4, verse 2]). [And] by the time that Jude wrote the book that bears his name, it was necessary for him to exhort the people to "earnestly contend for the faith that was ONCE delivered unto the saints," for certain men had crept in who were attempting to substitute things that were no part of the original faith ([check Jude, Chapter 1, verses 3 and 4]).

Christianity[, folks,] came face to face with the Babylonian paganism in its various forms that had been established in the Roman Empire. The early Christians refused to have anything to do with its customs and beliefs[, and we all know what happened]. Much persecution resulted. Many[, many] Christians were falsely accused, thrown to the lions, burned at the stake, and in other ways tortured and martyred.

[William Cooper: And for their own safety, they went underground in the catacombs, and in the caves, and they formed their own secret society which was known then as the "Friendly Open Secret Society," and their symbol to mark their way was a fish.]

Then, great changes began to be made. The Emperor of Rome professed conversion to Christianity...

(end of quote)

He had to, for Rome...Rome would have fallen just as sure, just as sure, as a tree in the forest falls to the axe, if he had not made that move.

Don't go away, ladies and gentlemen. I'll be back right after this very short pause.

(William Cooper does a commercial for Swiss America Trading):

Ladies and gentlemen, the Hour of the Time is brought to you by Swiss America Trading. This is one program that we've had many applications from people in companies and corporations wanting to sponsor us. Now these people are usually in what's called the "Patriot Community" because mainstream, mainstream companies, corporations, organizations and people wouldn't touch this broadcast with a forty foot pole, I can assure you. We chose Swiss America Trading because we checked them out. We found out that they're good people—real good people. They're honest, they back up their guarantees, (and) they back up what they say. We have an agreement. If I think they didn't do somebody right, they make it right instantly, or they don't sponsor this program anymore. That's about the best guarantee that anybody on radio could ever give you. You see, I don't do anything halfway, folks. Whoever sponsored this program was going to invariably become attached to me. My name and theirs would be linked. Whether we wanted it to happen or not, they would be linked. Therefore, I had to have a sponsor that I could believe in, and that would offer our listening audience something that they needed, really needed badly. And you all need the services of Swiss America Trading to protect what you've worked all of your life to gain, against what is coming in our future.

The New World Order, the actual legal aspect of it in the law, was established a long, long time ago. The only people who don't understand that the world government is already in place are the "sheeple" of the world. So as not to precipitate an armed uprising against them, they are acclimatizing you gradually to the fact that world government exists, that when there is a conflict between the Constitution and the United Nations charter, the United Nations charter shall prevail! You're being taught these things through television, through the movies. Children are being taught in school. In a way, where everybody knows something's wrong and everybody suspects what's going on, nobody really knows except the listening audience of this broadcast.

Now, whether or not you ever purchase anything form Swiss America Trading, if you value what you hear on the Hour of the Time, you need to call them at least to thank them for sponsoring this program. If you do that, and mention my name, they'll send you several free newsletters and some other written material that you need to read. I would advise you strongly, very strongly ladies and gentlemen, to talk to them about making an investment in nonconfiscatable, nonreportable hard assets in the form of gold or silver or platinum. And I strongly suggest you do this as soon as possible, and set up a program where you can continue over the coming weeks and months, and hopefully a few more years, build up a reserve that you can use in time of great need. Call them. Do it now. 1-800-289-2646. That's 1-800-289-2646. You'll be glad. You'll be very, very glad, ladies and gentlemen, that you did.

(continuation of break music: unknown orchestral piece)

In those early days of the real Church -- the real Church, Christ's Church, who practiced exactly what he taught them -- great, great changes began to take place that have affected us right up to this very day. What a shock it must have been when Constantine professed a conversion to Christianity after stating that he'd seen the vision of a cross in the sky. And some accounts say that he didn't see it in the sky during daylight, that he saw it in a dream. And ladies and gentlemen, because he never accepted Christ during his entire life, and in fact was a pagan sun worshiper, I question whether he ever saw a cross at all. You see, because history says and records very clearly, that Constantine never accepted Christ as his savior. He never really followed the teachings of Christ. He was, in fact, a sun worshiper He practiced the Mystery Religion of Babylon. But he was, in fact, the Emperor of Rome. Rome very quickly became, ladies and gentlemen, the Catholic Church, and the Roman Emperor became the Pope. He had to do this to save the Empire.

The symbol of the Roman Empire, and the Emperor, was the double-headed eagle. It signified that he ruled over both the east and the west -- that the sun did not set on the Roman Empire. This symbol still is displayed upon the walls of the Vatican. And just recently, Russia adopted this symbol as its national symbol. It is the symbol of the 33rd degree of Freemasonry. And I could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on, but hopefully you get the point.

[continuing reading from Babylon Mystery Religion, written by Ralph Woodrow]:

(start of quote)

Imperial orders, ladies and gentlemen, went forth throughout the [Roman Empire] that persecutions should cease[...simply and quickly cease]. Bishops were [created and] given high honors. The church began to receive worldly recognition and power. But for all of this, a great[, great] price had to be paid! Many[, many] compromises were made[, ladies and gentlemen,] with paganism. Instead of the church being separate from the world, it became a part of this world system. The emperor showing favor, demanded a place of leadership in the church; for in paganism, emperors were believed to be gods. [So] from here on, wholesale mixtures of paganism into Christianity were made, especially at Rome.

(end of quote)

We believe that the information that you're going to receive, and have received in fact over this broadcast, will convince you that what is known today as the Roman Catholic Church is nothing less than the old Roman Empire transformed. And the old Roman pantheon of gods became the pantheon of saints. And the Christian, who began as a Saint, equal with all of his brothers and sisters, became a lowly peon once again. The title "Saint" was stripped from him, and from her. And someone began to pass a plate, and put up collection boxes, and demand that at festivals the wealth of the people be transferred into the coffers of the church.

[quoting from the book]: "[Now, I don't] doubt that there are many fine [and] sincere and devout Catholics."

In fact, I know there are. I know there are many devout, sincere, courageous, wonderful members of the Mormon church, and the Baptist church, and the Lutheran church, and the Orthodox church, and even the Buddhist religion...and Hinduism. I've met these people all over the world. We have all, ladies and gentlemen, been deceived throughout our lives by the secular and the religious priesthood. And in many cases, they are the same. They're now engaged in a grand plan to bring about a New World Order.

The Mystery schools -- they try to keep the mysteries pure -- want to rule the world through a council of elders, with a puppet, charismatic, religious, and political leader upon the throne of the world. And the Vatican wants the Pope to sit upon the throne of the world, and rule without the council of elders. You see, they all united in the efforts to bring about world government. The only point of contention is -- who is going to rule?

And we're the odd card, the joker in the deck. For if we want to, we could decide that neither one of them will rule, and we could determine the outcome of this battle. And we could reinstitute the real Church again upon this Earth as it was when Jesus taught it. He did not teach us to war against our neighbor. He did not teach us to condemn or judge our neighbor. In fact, the commandment was "judge not lest ye shall be judged." When Jesus spoke to a crowd and someone walked away from the crowd, he did not chase them down the road and try to stuff his teachings down their throat, ladies and gentlemen. He did not do that. Neither did he build great, wealthy cathedrals built of shining glass, with great pageants on the holidays, and big-named stars to come and sing and perform in these pageants where a homeless person or a poor, unemployed man with dirty clothes would be turned away from the door. Jesus Christ would have been the first one that welcomed that person into the Church. And if you will look at the people that he habitually associated with, whose homes he slept in, who became his disciples, you will understand that those today who call themselves Christians do not even know the meaning of the not even know the meaning of the word. Many, many of the ministers, pastors, who stand at our pulpits across this nation and preach the word of God on Sunday, attend the rituals of the Masonic lodge on the following Saturday and pay homage to Lucifer. How can this be? How can this be?

[quoting from book]: "[Now folks, it's not my] intention to treat lightly or ridicule anyone whose beliefs we may here disagree with."

I will be the first one to stand by your side and protect your right to worship at the altar of your choice any time anyone threatens to take that away from you, whether I agree with your method of worship, or your church, or your altar. For I believe sincerely that only by protecting your right to worship at the altar of your choice is my right to worship at the altar of my choice protected. Only by allowing you to speak what you wish to speak is my right to speak what I must speak protected. And everywhere I go, I see Christians who do not practice that at all, yet they claim to be Americans and support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and claim to be following the teachings of Jesus Christ, and they are not. They are false Christians. And I think that someday when they go to knock on that door that they're all looking forward to passing through, they will find that it is shut and barred and locked against them.

I hope that this program tonight inspires people, regardless of their church affiliation, to forsake all the stupid dogma and silly interpretations and the fractures that have created thousands of different divisions of what is supposed to be one Church across this nation. Forsake the Babylonish doctrines and concepts and seek a return to the faith that was once delivered unto the Saints -- the real Saints, not, ladies and gentlemen, the Roman pantheon of gods.

I hope tomorrow night to be able to bring the guest who was supposed to be on tonight. He may have called later, because the phone was ringing. But once I get into something, I carry it through to the finish. I cannot start something and leave it in the middle. I think tonight's message was important. It was important to me to be able to deliver it.

This is not a religious program, folks. It's about lies and deception. It's about the truth. And the truth is very few people know the truth, or practice the truth. Most so-called Christians spend most of their life calling Jesus Christ a liar. They've so twisted his teachings, his simple teachings. They've so turned around everything that is said. They so reach out to find verses in the Bible to promote their own agenda, whatever it may be. And all through the work they steal from their neighbors, and piously attend church on Sunday. And this must stop. It must stop. All of the lies must stop. All of the deceptions must stop. All of the manipulations must stop. We must begin to use our brains, tempered with our hearts, for cold reason is cruel and intrepid. Those who believe that there is no place in this world, or within humanity, for emotion are the despots of the world. Conversely, those who believe that the heart should dictate everything are the fools of the world. Man after all, as the ancients left us the symbol of the Sphinx to remind us, is nothing but an animal with a brain. And we spend most of our time in conflict between the animal instinct and the brain; between the emotions and desires and temptations and what we know to be right; between the forces of good, and the forces of evil. Too few of us are winning these battles, ladies and gentlemen. Too few of us really care. Too few of us really understand the golden rule -- do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Too many of us are fat, and lazy, and apathetic, and ignorant, pampered, spoiled, rotten.

America must change. The change must occur in the people. The people must once again understand what is important and what is not. They must be willing to sacrifice. They must be willing to do whatever is necessary to make sure that the freedom that man has gained throughout his history, culminating in the greatest nation upon the face of this earth, does not disappear from the face of this earth in the name of some promised world Utopian government. For anything, ladies and gentlemen, that is created from a mountain of lies to sit up on top of a mountain of lies, is nothing but another mountain of lies. And as soon as the truth upon which this mountain is sitting is exposed, the entire thing will come tumbling down.

A world brought about by liars through deceit and manipulation cannot be a good thing -- will not be a good thing. And those who are behind it, who profess to be doing what's best for man, who profess to be acting with the best intentions for the future of mankind, belie that statement when it comes out of the same mouth that promotes the lies that creates the deceptions that manipulates the people into it. For if it were going to be so good, no lies would be required, no deceptions would be required, no manipulations would have to take place.

Now, all of you who are waiting for Jesus to come into His Kingdom, I tell you He is in His Kingdom now. The problems with this world lie with man, have always been with man, and will be with man no matter what he tries to create, no matter how he tries to create it. If it is built by man, it is flawed. The concept that we're going to have a perfect Utopian world government, where imperfect men are ruled by imperfect men, is ludicrous...absolutely, 100% ludicrous.

I want to thank you all for putting up with my demented ravings tonight. I'm kind of glad that our guest didn't show up, because this is something that's been burning within me for quite some time. For reference, read Alexander Hislop's The Two Babylons and Babylon Mystery Religion: Ancient and Modern by Woodrow. Refer to the 33 tapes of our Mystery Babylon series that were aired on this broadcast over the last two years.

Good luck. Good night. And God bless you.

William Cooper's Mystery Babylon: Part 34 – Secret Societies and Vatican II

Transcribed by wakingup72 @


Welcome, once again, to the Hour of the Time. I'm William Cooper...

[voice of Carolyn Nelson]...and I'm Carolyn Nelson.

Last night during this time slot I neglected to do what I said I would do at the beginning of the program, and people have been calling all day -- both my house and here -- wanting to know how to get hold [sic] of the Luxor tape and what the price is and all of that kind of thing. A lot of people are interested in that and they should be. You all should be interested in this video tape. I'm very proud of it and it's will be about two weeks in production, and then it'll be ready to send out. If you want to get it in advance, order in so that you can get one of the first copies, and they are always the best, by the way, because they come off of the clean master. As the master is used, as more and more copies are reproduced off the master, the quality gets poorer and poorer until finally you have to make another master or stop producing the tape, one of the two.

So, if you would like a copy of The Source of Light, which is the name of the tape, The Source of Light...

(William Cooper gives details about obtaining a copy of the video tape)

Don't go away. We got a good, good show for you tonight, but first we're going to get your blood roaring through your veins.

(opening music: Shake, Rattle and Roll, performed by Bill Haley & His Comets)

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I'm going to read to you an article from La Traviata...La Traviata, the December 1993 issue. And I'm going to read this to you so that you'll know that I'm not the only one out here who's stark raving mad as some of you tend to think. I want you to hear that, not only...not only have I reached the conclusions that I have reached through years and years of diligent and very, very deep research, but many others have reached the same -- and I mean the very same -- conclusions. This is entitled, "Secrets in the Vatican II: The Church and the Secret Societies, A Brief History." Pay close attention and, as always, ladies and gentlemen, make sure that you have a tablet and a pen or pencil by your side at all times when you listen to the Hour of the Time.

(start of quote)

At a recent Church of England Synod, a report on Freemasonry was presented to the assembled clerics and laypeople for debate. Several speakers denounced Masonry as contrary to the teachings of Christianity and condemned Christians, especially clerics, who might be members. One speaker even went so far as to attack Masonry as blasphemous because he claimed its central initiation ritual, which involves a symbolic death and rebirth enactment, was a travesty of the Christian belief of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. Since its inception, Freemasonry has been a target of Christian wrath. In the inner circle of Masonry among those who have obtained higher degrees of initiation there are Masons who understand that they are the inheritors of an ancient and pre-Christian tradition handed down from pagan times. The medieval Masons inherited this secret tradition in the form of symbolic teachings which expressed spiritual truths. These teachings originated in the pagan mysteries which were followed [wildly]...widely [and wildly] in the ancient world. These medieval Masons inherited esoteric knowledge from their pagan forebearers and this knowledge was incorporated into the sacred architecture of the cathedrals.

[William Cooper: Now, I want you to pay real close attention because during my series in the Mysteries, when I found out what was concealed within most of the altars that were built during those times -- and I related it to you over the air -- many people called me a liar. And you're going to hear verification of this -- what was found -- not only within the altars, but throughout these cathedrals. So pay close attention, folks. This is very important.]

When the lodges of speculative, as opposed to operative, Freemasonry were founded in the 17th and 18th centuries, this knowledge was transformed into the symbolism which today forms the basis of Masonic ritual. With the persecution of alternative spiritual beliefs in medieval Christian Europe, the guardians of this ancient wisdom went underground, forming secret societies to preserve their pagan ideals, and these societies became the "mysteries". The two major secret societies which were formed in this period -- although they only revealed themselves in public form in the 16th and 17th centuries -- were Freemasonry and the Order of the Rosy and Cross. While the Order of the Rosy Cross, or the Rosicrucians, is still a secret society which has received little publicity in the modern times, considerable public attention has been drawn to Freemasonry recently.

[William Cooper: (laughs) Oh, my.]

The Masons regard geometry as the most important of the arts and sciences, according to their beliefs. Geometry has been taught by a pre-flood patriarch called Lamech, who had three sons: one invented geometry, another was the first Mason, and the third was a blacksmith who was the first human to work with precious metals. In common with Noah, Lamech was warned of an impending flood caused by the wickedness of humanity and the interference of the fallen angels in world affairs. Lamech and his sons decided to preserve their knowledge in two stone pillars, so that future generations would discover it. The Masons believe that one of these pillars was discovered by the Greek god Hermes, also known to the Greeks as Hermes Trismegistus (or Thrice Greatest) and to the ancient Egyptians as the Ibis-headed scribe of the gods Thoth -- pronounced Tehuti. The so-called "emerald tablet of Hermes" is said to contain the essence of the lost wisdom from before the days of the biblical flood.

According to occult sources, this tablet was discovered in a cave by the mystic Apollonius of Tyana, who was regarded by the early church as a rival to Jesus. The first published version of the Emerald Tablet dates from an Arabic source of the 8th century, A.D., and it was not translated into Latin in Europe until the 13th century. However, the myth of the Hermetic wisdom had a profound effect on the Gnostics who were heretical Christians in direct conflict with the early church for attempting to fuse paganism with the new Christian faith. They also claimed to possess the secret teachings of Jesus, divulged to only his inner circle of disciples. Masons claim these teachings were censored from the authorized version of the New Testament, which was approved by the Church councils, who met to decide the structure and dogma of early Christianity.

In medieval Europe, gnostic philosophy emerged in the rise of the heretical Christian sect -- the Cathars -- and the rise of the Chivalric Order of the Knights Templar. The Hermetic traditions provided the spiritual inspiration for many secret societies in the Middle Ages, and its influence can be discerned in both speculative Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism. In the Masonic tradition, it is said that Masons were first organized into a corporate body during the building of the tower of Babel. The concept of this tower was to reach up to heaven and contact God. According to Genesis 11:4-6, the fall of the Tower of Babel destroyed the common language spoken by humanity and ended the Second Golden Age, which followed the flood. The architecture of the tower was King Nimrod of Babylon, who was a Mason. According to popular belief, the Hebrews received their knowledge of Masonry from the Babylonians and introduced it to Egypt when they were taken into slavery. In Egypt, this knowledge was influenced by the Mysteries and the occult traditions of the pyramid builders, who were versed in the techniques of sacred geometry. The key to the pagan origins of Freemasonry relies on the semi-mythical story of the construction of King Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem. This building was regarded as the repository of ancient occult wisdom and symbolism by both the Freemasons and the Knights Templar.

To build the temple, Solomon imported Masons, artists and craftsman from neighboring countries. Specifically, he sent a message to the king of Tyre, asking if he could hire the services of the king's master builder, Hiram Abiff, who was killed in geometry -- who was skilled (laughs) -- who was skilled in geometry. (laughs) Solomon appointed Hiram as the chief architect and master Mason of the temple. Hiram completed the temple in seven years [the number is specially significant in the occult tradition and Freemasonry, folks]. But this achievement was overshadowed by his violent, mysterious death. Hiram was approached by three fellow Masons who demanded the secret of the master Mason's word. He refused, and was beaten to death. They buried him in a shallow grave. They mark the grave was an acacia tree. His corpse was discovered 15 days later. Solomon ordered that his body to be exhumed and be buried with a full religious ceremony and honors due a craftsman of his rank.

Early Masons historians regarded Hiram Habit as a symbolic representative of Osiris, the Egyptian god of death and rebirth. In the third degree of Freemasonry, the candidate representing Hiram Abiff is raised from the death by a special Masonic handshake known as "The grip of the lion's paw," of the lion's grip.

In both Masonic and Egyptian Mysteries, the resurrected god is buried on a hill in a tomb, marked by a tree. In Royal Arch Masonry, the candidate for initiation is informed that the sacred name of god is really Jahbulon. This name has been deciphered as a coded reference to the two major gods of the Middle Eastern fertility cults, Osiris and Baal, combined with the Hebrew tribal God, Jehovah. In Masonry, God is also signified as the Great Architect of the Universe, signifying the importance of sacred geometry and also indicating that he creates nothing, but designs and builds from that which has already been created.

The political aspirations of Freemasonry, revealed in their influence on the revolutionary movements and protosocialism of 18th- and 19th-century Europe can be traced back to the myth of the Golden Age, during the reign of Osiris and Isis, and before the flood to the Babylonians and Hebrew myths of creation. Occult tradition alleges that Hiram Abiff was secretly member of an ancient society known as the Dionysian Artificers, who first appeared about 1000 B.C. when the temple at Jerusalem was being erected. They took their name from the Greek god and possessed secret signs and passwords by which they recognized each other; were divided in chapters (or lodges) ruled by a Master and were dedicated to helping the poor. They established lodges in all the Mediterranean lands and their influence spread as far east as India. With the rise of the Roman Empire, lodges were found in Central and Western Europe and in the British Isles. The Artificers were connected with another secret society known as the Ionians. Members of this society had settled in Asia Minor and were dedicated to the spreading of civilization, especially in its Greek form, to what they regarded as the barbarian world. Allegedly, the Ionians were responsible for the famous temple of the goddess Diana at Ephesus. Architects from this society, together with the Dionysian Artificers, traveled from Tyre to work on Solomon's temple. Later, the Artificers called themselves the "Sons of Solomon" and used his magical seal -- two interlaced triangles representing the union of the male and female energies -- as their trademark. The Artificers who settled in Israel founded the Cassidens, who were a guild of craftsmen skilled in the repair of religious buildings.

[Now] this new sect was instrumental in the foundation of the mystical Jewish group called the Essenes. The Essenes became famous through the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. In occult tradition, Jesus of Nazareth was an Essene, and there are connections between this group and the medieval Knights Templar. The Dionysian Artificers believed that the temples they built had to be reconstructed according to the principles of sacred geometry, which reflected the divine plan of God. They constructed religious buildings to represent the human body as a symbol of the universe. They also promoted the political idea of Utopia on earth, which was expressed in symbolic form. The hammer and the chisel of the Mason became the cosmic forces which shaped the spiritual destiny of mankind. The Roman architect and master builder Vitruvius, born in the first century, A.D., was influenced by the Dionysian Artificers. His theories formed the basis for the architecture of the Roman Empire, and with the rediscovery of the classical knowledge in the 16th century, also had an impact on the greatest architects of the Renaissance. Vitruvius' concept of the magical theater representing the microcosmos of the world, as a symbol of the macrocosmos of the universe, was repeated in William Shakespeare's famous phrase, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players." And in the naming of his famous theater, The Globe, it is claimed that Shakespeare was a Rosicrucian initiate who was probably familiar with these ideas. Others take it further and believe that the Shakespearian plays were really written by Sir Francis Bacon. In the Masonic tradition, Cesar Augustus is the patron of the Masons in ancient Rome, and is said to have been Grand Master of the Roman College of Architects. This society was organized into guilds with symbols based on the tools of their trade, such as the plumb line, the square, compasses, and the level. The college had initiation rituals involving the pagan myth of death and rebirth, which are familiar from the Egyptian Mysteries.

A temple built and used by the college was unearthed at Pompeii, the city destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 71, A.D. Among the symbols discovered in the temple were the double triangle of Solomon, the black and white tracing board first used by the Dionysian Artificers, the skull, the plum line, the pilgrim's staff and the ragged robe.

The black-and-white tracing board were later seen on the battle flag of the Knights Templars, and then again on the floor of the cathedral at Sharps, built by the Knights Templar. These symbols later emerge in medieval Masonry and also speculative Freemasonry.
The traditions of the Roman College seem to have been passed on to the Order of Comacine masters, who flourished during the reign of the emperors Constantine and Theodosius in the 4th century, A.D., when Christianity was emerging as the dominant religion of the Roman Empire. According to legend, the Order was founded by ex-members of the Roman College, who were forced to flee from the Barbarians. They set up their headquarters on the island of Comacine in Lake Como, and in 643 were placed under the patronage of the king of Lombardi, who gave the Order control over all the Masons and architects in Italy.

The Comacine Order was divided into lodges ruled by Grand Masters, wore white aprons and gloves, and recognized each other by secret signs and passwords. The Order was responsible for the Lombardi and Romanesque styles of architecture, and can be seen as the link between architects and Masons who built the pagan temples and the master builders who erected the Gothic cathedrals of Western Europe in the Christian Middle Ages. There is evidence that the Comacine Masons traveled all over Europe, and according to the historian Beadie, even reached the Anglo-Saxon England, where they built a church in Northumbria.

Although the Masons who built the medieval churches and cathedrals were nominally Christian, the proliferation of pagan symbols and images in these ancient buildings indicates many of them were still pagans at heart.

[William Cooper: And, folks, this is what I explained to you about the pyramidal structure of organization in these secret society [sic]. Those at the bottom may go to a Christian church and really believe that they are Christian, or attend other religions. But as they progress through the degrees of initiation, they are indoctrinated into the old pagan religions, and the old gods come back to them with vengeance until they reach the top. They are no longer Christian, they no longer worship Allah, or Buddha, or any of the gods or religious beliefs that they had before. They're all gone by that time, and that's the purpose. You see, those at the bottom were exposed all at once to what they would eventually learn through going up the degrees of initiation. None of them would stay long enough to get to the top. It is a process of slow, slow but sure, brainwashing, and it works very, very good.]

Pagan symbols found include Sheela na Gig. These are crude representations of the naked female form in the shape of a woman with spread eagle legs displaying their genitals. They have been identified as images of the pagan goddess of fertility, worshiped in Celtic times. Other carvings found in medieval churches depict monks and priests in sexual poses with wanton young girls, performing homosexual acts, or wearing the heads of animals. Even stranger examples of pagan Masonry can be found. Professor Gregory Webb of Cambridge University, England, in 1946, Secretary of the Royal Commission of Historical Monuments, and an authority on medieval architecture, at the end of the war was appointed by the British government to survey ancient churches in Southern England which had been damaged by the German bombing. In one of the churches he discovered that a Nazi bomb had dislodged the top of the altar, revealing the interior for the first time since the 14th century. Inside the damaged altar, Webb and his team discovered a stone image of a phallus [phallus, the phallus,in fact, of Osiris] which had been carefully concealed within the hollowed interior. At first Webb [at first]...

[audio is cut off for a few seconds]

...they thought this discovery was unique, until he began to examine other churches. He found that virtually all [virtually all, ladies and gentlemen] of the pre-Reformation churches built before the outbreak of the bubonic plague at the end of the 14th century, when church buildings ceased for a long period, had altars which hid fertility symbols, phalluses, which dedicated the Christian churches to the old pagan religion.

[William Cooper: The phallus, for the religion of Osiris, which came from the ancient religion of Babylon, were the phallus representative, the generative force -- Baal, who was also known as Nimrod. So you always learn something listening to the Hour of the Time.]

The public image of protective associations, using their powers to promote fair trade and business ethics, concealed the fact that the medieval society of Freemasons was a secret society with pagan origins. Clandestinely promoting radical political opinions (socialism), the occult initiates who were the real power behind the secret societies knew that to achieve their aim they had to use the political system, and in the 12th century they began to put their plan into operation.

[William Cooper: It is known as "The Great Plan" or "The Great work". It is what is bringing the New World Order to fruition into the world.]

The relationship between the Pope and the Grand Masters of the secret societies[, ladies and gentlemen,] was an explosive one. The Church regarded the members of the secret societies as spiritual anarchists, who were agents of Satanic conspiracy against organized religion. The Church saw them as competitors for their flock, the sheep. The Freemasons and Rosicrucians styled themselves as wolves and believed that the sheep belonged to them and were their legal and lawful prey. The Freemasons and Rosicrucians, on the other hand, also accused the Church of suppressing the true teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, and many secret societies were fervently anticlerical. They plotted the overthrow of the Catholic Church because it opposed the old pagan religions and the Manichean heresy, from which these groups drew their spiritual inspiration.

[William Cooper: Ah, if they only knew that the Catholic Church had already done it long ago, and that's why they feared the secret societies as competitors.]

At first, secret societies were supported by the Church. When the Vatican perceived the secret societies to be a political and ideological threat to the Church, the climate of suspicious tolerance began to change, culminating with King Philip of France wiping out the Order of the Knights Templar in the 14th century. In the lodges of Freemasonry, in the actual orders of the Templars, they attribute the date of the execution of Jacque DeMolay by burning at the stake to the year 1313. Other references give the year 1314.

The Council of Nicaea, convened by the emperor Constantine in the 4th century, rejected pagan beliefs [at least that's what they said] such as reincarnation, which were held by early Christians and presented Jesus as God incarnate rather than a human spiritual teacher. Our contemporary knowledge of the gospel of Mark dates back to 1958 when an American professor of theology, Dr. Morton Smith, discovered references to it in a letter by Clement, preserved in a desert monastery.

According to Smith, the inner teachings of Jesus were passed by him to his disciples during the initiation rite, which resembled those of the pagan mysteries. Smith interprets the ritual communion meal practiced by early Christians as a pagan rite descended from the mysteries of Isis and Osiris. It was this esoteric interpretation of Christianity, which was accepted by the medieval secret societies, rather than the version offered by the Church. After a brief lapse to pagan worship during the reign of Julian, the Christian religion quickly reestablished itself in Rome. And under the emperor Theodosius (378-395 A.D.) the worship of the old pagan gods was finally prohibited.

The ideological battle between the Popes and the Roman emperors they created raged for several hundred years. The point where we can discern the beginning of these secret societies influence this power struggle was in the reign of Frederick II, crowned as Holy Roman Emperor in 1215. With his death in 1250, the Holy Roman Empire collapsed. The Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, in the first lodge in Carolina in the United States received its charter from Frederick of Prussia.

For 20 years Europe was devastated by war until, in 1273, the concept of the old empire was revived with the crowning of a new Holy Roman Emperor, Count Rudolf Von Habsburg (meaning "castle of hawks") in Austria. For the next 300 years, under the patronage of the Vatican, the Habsburgs extended their empire throughout Europe based on their temporal power and the spiritual power of the Roman Catholic.

(break music: Let's Twist Again, performed by Chubby Checker)

Well, I just know you're all up there twisting all around the living room, aren't ya? How of many of you can still do it? Well, before we went on the air, Sugarbear, Carolyn and I were doing it. And the reason why I'm playing this music tonight is...just that I kind of take everybody back to when times were really good in this country. They're trying to convince us that times were no good during the 50's and the early 60's, and that's a lie. And those of us who lived during that period know that it was the best time in the history of this country for the common man. Everyone had work if they wanted it. The American dream was becoming realized by more people than ever before in the history of this country. And what's happening now? The American dream, just since that time, has disappeared, folks, for most young people. Unless they really strike it rich, or get into a profession that really jerks the money out of people's pockets, they have no hope of owning their own home for many, many, many years, if ever. Most people in every family now have to work, and the children are regulated...regulated to government-controlled daycare centers. They are, in fact, occupationally orphaned as you struggle just to keep food on the table, and a roof over your heads, and be able to have a little bit left over for some recreation once in a while.

[talking over music]: Boy, I don't know what you're doing in your living room but we're rockin' here. You ought to see Carolyn dance. Even Sugarbear can get on his two hind legs and dance. C'mon, folks, get up, give it a try. Put a little spice in your life.

...and I'm continuing with the article:

(start of quote)

The successful alliance between the Habsburgs and the Vatican was seriously weakened by the actions of one man, a crusading reformer who used the symbol of the rose and cross on his personal seal. He was the German monk Martin Luther.

[William Cooper: When I reveal that Martin Luther was a member of the Rosy Cross, the Order of the Rosy Cross, and that his personal seal was the rose and cross, you should see the piles of letters I got from Protestants who blindly revere this man, without knowing anything about him, chastising me for revealing to them the truth. But, folks, you can write all the letters you want, you will always get the truth on the Hour of the Time. We may make some mistakes now and then and if we do, as we have always done in the past, I will come on the air, and correct those mistakes. But we never, ever intentionally give you anything that is untrue. Remember that. Martin Luther's personal seal was the rose and the cross. And he was, in fact, a member of the Order of the Rose Cross. Martin Luther, the man who many revere, was the founder of the Protestant (or protest-ant) movement.]

The reformation, allegedly, supported by the Rosicrucians and other secret societies who opposed the Catholic Church, swept through Europe. This period of the reformation represents a key time in history, during which the relationship between the Church and the secret societies changed[...changed, folks]. With the Reformation, [you see,] the Church was faced with an enemy within, which it could not destroy without bringing down its own edifice. With the Reformation, the whole concept of organized religion in Europe was revolutionized overnight. And where there had been one church, now today there are literally tens of thousands -- all with different dogma, different interpretations -- all professing to be the only true church with the only truth and with the only claim to heaven. Ah, but if you only knew.

Many think that the secret societies were instrumental in this revolution -- I can tell you absolutely for a fact that they were. Support from the Grand Masters was offered to the reformers because the Reformation was recognized as a means to weaken the influence of the Catholic Church in European affairs. In America, sad to say, much of the Catholic hierarchy has taken on this role in modern times. The Reformation, effectively, emasculated the political power of the Church. It laid the foundation for the Puritan movement, whose members fled religious persecution in Europe to found [sic] a new nation in the Americas, based on spiritual principles drawn from Rosicrucian sources. And all of our founding fathers were members of these secret societies.

[William Cooper: And many people have also chastised me for making that claim, but it is easily proved...easily! The problem with most of you people is that you believe blindly what you are told and you never check anything. Many of you still believe that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree, and when his father asked him who did it, he told the truth. Well, that's all a lie, folks. There was no cherry tree. He never chopped one down. His father never asked him if he did, and I really don't know if he would have told the truth or not. Most politicians don't...most politicians do not.]

It also provided an atmosphere of open-mindedness which allowed the seeds of the Renaissance to flower, based on the best ideas of the pagan classical world. Although the Habsburgs would rule for another 300 hundred years until 1806, the Reformation destroyed any hope of a united Europe controlled by the Roman Catholic Church [until today]. Above everything else, the religious reforms of the 16th century marked the beginning of the period when the Church became determined to exterminate the secret societies which had weakened its power base.

[William Cooper: I'm not aware that the Vatican has changed its policy one iota from this. In fact, its determination has doubled over the past 150 years, even though today the secret societies flourish in America, with only a wink from the American Catholic Church bishops. In fact, the Jesuit Society was formed to combat this from another secret order of the Illuminati, or the Alumbrados, in Spain. The head of this group was Ignatius Loyola who was, in fact, arrested by the Inquisition. He used his influence with powerful people to gain an audience with the Pope. He went in on his knees and walked out on his two legs with a papal Bull, granting him immunity from prosecution, from the Inquisition, from any king, queen, country or law, save one, the Pope, and he was to found a new order, the Society of Jesus, now known as the Jesuits. See, the oath of the secret society, which makes up a chapter in my book -- and you will see that they are sworn to destroy the Protestant movement and Protestants, wherever they could find them.]

[repeats]: Above everything else, the religious reforms of the 16th century marked the beginning of the period when the Church became determined to exterminate the secret societies which had weakened its power base.

The secret societies, though they claimed to follow the precepts of Jesus Christ, actually provide an alternative version of spirituality to their followers. They denied the divinity of Jesus Christ, they deny that he was the son of God, or was in actuality the incarnated God upon this Earth; that he died, or that he was resurrected, or that he sits upon the right hand of the throne of God. Instead, he has become an Ascended Master -- a Teacher -- and Christ has become an office, which anyone can attain.

[William Cooper: You too, can become a Christ in the New World Order. They actually provide this alternative version of spirituality, and it is the foundation of what you know today as the New Age movement.]

They allege that the Church had deliberately subverted the teachings of Jesus and teach that there are other sources of spiritual knowledge which are as valid as Christian belief and predated it by thousands of years. In 1738, the first papal Bull to combat Freemasonry was issued by Pope Clement the XII. This Bull threatened any Catholic who became a Mason with excommunication -- at that time, an extremely[, extremely] serious punishment. In fact, nothing worse could be imagined.

In the 1870s, claims that secret societies such as the Illuminati were using Freemasonry as a cover for radicalism and revolution gave the Church fresh charges to level against the Masonic lodges. The climax of the Church's crusade to destroy the influence of Freemasonry came in the 19th century. In 1864, Pope Pius X condemned socialism and the secret societies in his Syllabus of Errors, which he published following an investigation of revolutionary activities in Italy. Every investigation has found that socialism emanates from the secret societies.

Twelve months after the publication of the Syllabus, the Pope again condemned the secret societies, specifically attacking Freemasonry as anti-Christian, Satanic and pagan in origin. In 1884, Pope Leo the XIII issued a proclamation identifying Masonry as one of the secret societies working to establish Satan's kingdom on Earth. He also claimed that Masonry was attempting to revive the manners and customs of the pagans.

[William Cooper: They have succeeded, and a visit to the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas will convince you of that. It has often been claimed that the ultimate objective of the secret societies was to infiltrate the Vatican and place their own man on the throne -- see my book for the outcome.]

Some modern critics of the Roman Catholic Church, especially those with ultra-traditionalists views, who have seen in the liberalization of the Church in the recent years proof that its hierarchy has been penetrated at the highest levels by agents of the secret societies who are working for its eventual downfall. At the celebrations in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi in 1986, which stressed the unity of all religions, the Pope participated in a multi-religious prayer for world peace. Traditionalists were horrified to see the pontiff happily share a platform with a Tibetan lama, a Hindu Swami, a Native-American medicine man, a Jewish rabbi, and a Mouri(?) high priest.

It was noted that the unity of all the world's religions and the recognition that they all derived from the same ancient ancient source as the central philosophy of the secret societies. It is the goal of the World Council of Religions. It was the message of Pope John Paul the II in Denver, Colorado, dear listeners, and he replaced the last Pope who tried [-- who tried --] to be a good Pope. He was murdered after exactly 33 days in office.

Now, I read this from La Traviata...La Traviata, the December 1993 issue, I believe -- is it the December? Yeah, last December, 1993 issue -- to show you that I'm not the only insane person out here who has discovered the truth amongst all the lies. Anyone can do it -- I don't know who wrote that. I never saw that paper before. It was sent to me by a CAJI member. The author's name, I don't believe, is listed there. And even if it was, I still don't know him. Anyone who wants to look for the truth and find it will find it. It's not hidden, ladies and gentlemen.

In fact, today -- even though it began as a conspiracy hundreds and thousands of years ago -- today, it is all being done in the open. They believe that all of us are so stupid, actually, that they even write books about it, disclosing their whole intentions -- all of their plans, knowing that none of you will ever read those books. And if you did, you wouldn't believe it.

I said none of you, that's not really true. There's some of you out there who are learning, who are awake, who are struggling, who are fighting this battle with me, and with Carolyn, with many others, to try to save the ultimate achievement of all of mankind throughout the history of the world -- that's the Constitution, the Bill of Rights of the United States of America.

When I make a statement like that I always get letters, or people call if I open the phones and say, "How can you make that statement, Bill, when you just told us that our founding fathers were members of the secret societies?" Very simple, folks: read the writings of the founding fathers -- they will tell you themselves. This was a "great experiment" to see if man was capable of ruling himself, and if he was, this would be the culmination of the Great Work. But you will also find in their writings that they understood human nature better than any of us do, or probably ever will, for they knew...they knew that, with the keys built into the Constitution, we would give up our creator-endowed rights and trade them for benefits from the State, thus relegating ourselves back into the old -- the old position of owned property. We would become indentured to the State for accepting these privileges. But they knew, that people did then as they do today -- except for a very few people who really understand and appreciate freedom and understand the responsibilities and the consequences that go along with it -- they understood that most people spend the first 20 years of their lives struggling to become responsible and to be accepted as a man or a woman in their own right, able to be responsible, strike out on their own, build a business, sign contracts. And once they discover the responsibilities and requirements that freedom demands, they spend the rest of their life trying to crawl back into the womb searching for a daddy...a daddy to take care of them.

That's why socialism is so attractive to most people, ladies and gentlemen. It tells them they no longer have to be responsible, and in exchange for their freedoms, daddy the State will take care of them. Daddy the State will give them a job, Daddy the state will pretend to pay them if they pretend to work. Daddy the State will provide them with some sort of a hovel in which they can live, so they don't have to worry about paying the rent. Yes, Daddy will even change their diapers and give them clothes to wear. Daddy will tell them what time in the morning they can go out on the street, and what time in the evening they must be inside their hovel. Daddy will discipline them. Daddy will make sure that there's no crime to threaten them.

Oh, yes, many, many people will love the New World Order, and the new world religion, and the new world of entertainment that will be erected in place of the old Roman circus in order to keep the populace entertained and diverted -- mindless. Libraries will be filled with the new history books, and the new politically correct dogma of the the new politically correct world and the new politically correct religion. And everywhere you look, you will see the symbols of the generative force, the phallus of Osiris, the representation of the old god of Babylon -- Baal, Nimrod, Isis -- will be everywhere. You see, for Osiris is the doctrine, Isis is the Church, Horus is the great body of initiates that will rule you. They call themselves "wolves," and of course...of course, dear listeners, you are the sheep -- the legal and lawful prey of the wolves.

A nation or world of people who will not use their intelligence are no better than animals who do not have intelligence. Such people are beasts of burden and, yes, steaks on the table by choice and consent. If we didn't love you here, we would not say these things to you.

Please wake up. Good night, and God bless you all.
