Behind the Lodge Door: The Church, State, and Freemasonry of America


Behind the Lodge Door is at once an in-depth and probing analysis of Masonic activity in four principal areas of influence, especially as they relate to the United States, but it is also an overview of the Masonic fraternity in general that will enlighten and inform the reader and make a perusal of this book most worthwhile. Those four areas are 1) the religious education issue in the US, 2) opposition to the Catholic Church, 3) the molding and directing of national political and social policy, and 4) how the Masons attract their members.

But further, the author—who documents thoroughly everything he writes—touches upon a host of interesting topics, such as the birth and rise of Freemasonry, its roots in the ancient mystery religions and gnostic cults, the Catholic Church’s early and traditional condemnation of the Craft, its scope and influence in American national social and political life, its opposition to the practice of religion, its activities in various other countries, its rapprochement with the Catholic Church, and how it is in a very real sense a politically extra-national religion of its own. 

In this well-documented investigative report, author Paul Fisher lifts the veil on the subterranean war that has been waged against the Church and State by the Masonic fraternity for over two hundred years, even to the point of influencing US Supreme Court decisions. Because of the pervasive, albeit “quiet,” influence which Masonry exerts—and for many years has exerted—on our entire national political and social life, Behind the Lodge Door is a book every patriotic American and every serious Christian will want to read.
