Thoughts on a recon reading list

This is better than I thought it would be (and I’ve read 98% of these titles). I am surprised, really.  The author admits that North’s critique of the Constitution is correct.   That is a huge concession.  Once you acknowledge that it was a Masonic Conspiracy, the rest of “Restoring America to the Constitution” flies out the window.  I’m also glad that Failure of the American Baptist Culture is on there.   It’s a bit too pro-church for many recons.

I’m also glad that he recommended North’s Baptized Patriarchalism.  That may be the most important book for today’s recon.

And while some of Sutton’s early movement (yeah, I know, the m-word) was wacky and bizarre, his books are fantastic and highly recommended.

    Can I endorse what you have said above. And can I also recommend the following book which will clean out for all time the notions that:

    1) Jacobite Scotland was anything but Masonic, and
    2) America was founded as a “Christian” Nation:

    Laurence Gardiner, “The Shadow of Solomon”, Harper Element, London 2005
    ISBN 978-0-00-720671-9

    Laurence was a Knight Templar, and a Mason, with privileged access to the Stewart Royal Archives.This is perhaps the most compact yet detailed and accurate book on Freemasonry that I have seen.

    The original Boston Tea Party was wholly and exclusively an affair of the Boston Lodge of St Andrew..Notable members of this Lodge included Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, John Adams, William Dawes and Thomas Hutchinson.

    Nearly half of the 56 signers of the ‘Declaration of Independence’ were Freemasons. Of the 55 Delegates to the Constitutional Convention, 31 were Freemasons, as were 33 of George Washington’s 74 Generals. Almost half the balance were Rosicrucians.

    The vast majority of these were Deists, Unitarians, and Presbyterians.

    Happy Reading.

    I think Joel McDurmon is more open minded than most recons. Thanks for passing along his reading list. 🙂
