The Strange History of Masons in America
Masonic conspiracy theories are conspiracy theories involving Freemasonry ; hundreds of such conspiracy theories have been described since the late 18th century. Many conspiracy theory have connected Freemasons and the Knights Templar with worship of the devil;      these ideas are based on different interpretations of the doctrines of those organizations. Of the claims that Freemasonry exerts control over politics, perhaps the best-known example is the New World Order theory, but there are others. These mainly involve aspects and agencies of the United States government , but actual events outside the US such as the Propaganda Due scandal in Italy are often used to lend credence to claims. Another set of theories has to do with Freemasonry and religion, particularly that Freemasonry deals with "the occult".
So we ignore it and hope the question is never asked. On Monday, we revel in the glory of knowing that the founding fathers of our great nation were Christians. On Tuesday, we boldly condemn the institution of Freemasonry with a broad brushstroke. But on Wednesday, dreaded Wednesday, some enlightened soul dares to point out that many of our founding fathers were Masons… and now we have a problem. This is our platform, our soapbox, our foundation. Under no circumstances should this worldview be clouded with unnecessary facts-facts pointing out that the grave markers of my most cherished founding fathers are Masonic obelisks!

Ben Franklin by many is believed to be the most important person from the revolutionary period that was not a president or vice president. His great influence and knowledge are what made him so important in the early formation of America.
