Norwegian Terror Suspect's Masonic Membership
A photo of alleged Norwegian mass-murderer, Anders Behring Breivik, dressed in Masonic regalia has been widely circulated across the web over the last two days. So, naturally, the usual lineup of anti-Masons, from the Daily Mail to David Icke and Alex Jones, are having a field day naming Breivik as a foot soldier in some worldwide Masonic revolution.
Grand Master Ivar A. Skaar of the Grand Lodge of Norway has posted the following message on the GL website today:
"I am appalled by the terrible crime has been committed in the government quarter and the Utøya," says the Norwegian-order Masonic Grand Master, Ivar A. Skar.
We [express] sorrow and compassion for those who have been affected and their relatives.
It has emerged in the media that the accused has been a member of the Norwegian Order of Freemasons. He is now excluded with immediate effect.
Exclusion is an expression of the acts he is accused of having carried out and the values that appear to have motivated them is completely incompatible with what we stand for that order.
We build our business on Christian and humanist values and want our members to contribute to the promotion of charity, peace and goodness in people.
The police will of course get all the help and information we can help with."
One source says Breivik's membership was in St. Olaus T.D. Tre Søiler No. 8 (the lodge of St. Olaf at the Three Columns) in Oslo. The Grand Lodge of Norway has approximately 20,000 members. It follows the Swedish Rite, which requires its members to declare a belief in Christianity.
From "Frimurerordenen: - Terrorsiktet hadde minimal kontakt med oss
" ("Masonic Order: - Terror accused had minimal contact with us") by Eva-Therese Grøttum:
The Associated Press in Norway wrote yesterday that the 32-year-old is a registered member of the Norwegian Masonic Order. The Norwegian Masonic order denies that accused terrorist Anders Behring Breivik (32) has had a membership of importance with in the order. He is now excluded, effective immediately.
"As far as we understand he has had minimal contact with the lodge," says Grand Master Ivar A. Skaar to VGNett (news service).
The [Grand Master's edict] states that he is excluded from the order effective immediately.
"Exclusion is an expression of the acts he is accused of having carried out and the values that appear to have motivated them is completely incompatible with what we stand for [in Masonry], according to a press release.
It was Friday that 32-year-old Andres Behring Breivik was arrested and later charged with the heinous terrorist attacks that have shaken the whole world. At least 85 young people are now confirmed dead after he systematically shot and killed everyone he passed at the Labour Youth League summer camp at Utøya. [NOTE]
Breivik is also accused of bombing a government building in which at least seven people were killed and nine seriously injured.
Background: Arrested 32-year-old calling himself nationalist
Beyond confirming that there has been a relationship between the Masonic Order and Breivik, GM Skaar does not wish to comment further on the matter at this time. He will not say when the contact occurred, or how active the terrorist accused was in the lodge.
Masonic Lodge says they have had minimal contact with Anders Behring Breivik.
"We have discussed the matter on the phone today, he says, referring to the lodge in the press release on the matter.

Well, it would make sense that they wouldn't want to be associated with a guy who killed that many teenagers, and him (or his compatriots) whom planted and detonated those bombs.
Wonder what would happen if he was never tied to them commercially... would they willingly give him up? Or would they keep it under wraps because they weren't caught?

Did you see all his Nights Templar stuff, too?
How he used the red/rosy cross?
The tragic thing is..he saw something that does need to be discussed and worked out.
he just went blotto and extreme and hateful and psycho with it.
And because of that..it will not be seen by anyone other than other a-hole extemists like him (you know he is just a figure head, fell on his sword for his"cause")
My fear is the Tea party movement in the US, because he is like that movement on steriods.
I wish people could see that..a slippery slope.
Change is innevitable.
But I understand people fearign for their cultures possible annihaltion.
But no culture is ever, truly gone..everything just remixes and reshapes
a little bit of this..a little bit of that
The USA is a good represenatation of that..for the most part..this is why consevratism brinking on fascism must be kept in check..but also why just giving it all away, liberalism is not a good idea either..you have to strike a balance
