Missing link

  • June 6, 2024

Sr. Helena Burns foments the old Judeo-Masonic conspiracy theory that the Freemasons were behind the French Revolution and Karl Marx’s writings in her May 26 column (“Christ’s face defeats anti-God Communists”).

Readers should be aware that this conspiracy theory is linked to the fraudulent and antisemitic Protocols of the Elders of Zion in which Jews are portrayed as having infiltrated Freemasonry which, supposedly, promoted such revolutionary causes as the French Revolution and Communism.
