After establishing an official "Texas-Israel Day" and honoring the ADL with numerous declarations, Texas Lawmakers topped off their trifecta of terribleness with a ceremony praising the Freemasons. "Don't Mess With Texas?" You just can't make this stuff up. Below are links to House Resolution No. 691 and the text in its entirety. As shown below, freemasonry in reality is far from a benevolent sincere organization.

WHEREAS, Since 1950, the Freemasons of the Grand Lodge of Texas have designated a week in March to pay tribute to our public school system; and
WHEREAS, Many of the state's earliest leaders were Masons who led the movement for public education; these included Stephen F. Austin and Mirabeau B. Lamar, nicknamed the "Father of Texas Education" for successfully advocating for a permanent endowment to support public education; thanks to his efforts, such a fund continues to supplement the education budget today; and
WHEREAS, In addition to their influence in shaping policy, Freemasons also established schools across Texas, often opening the doors of their lodges to any person with a desire for learning; they championed access to education for all at a crucial point in Texas history, and that dedication to public schools has remained an important focus of the organization; current members contribute to their communities by recognizing teachers with awards and providing scholarships to deserving students; and
WHEREAS, Texas public schools prepare a diverse student population for the unique challenges of the 21st century, and the success of these institutions relies on the hard work and cooperation of numerous professionals and volunteers alike; and
WHEREAS, A quality education is vital to the prosperity of individuals, families, communities, and the entire state, and it is indeed appropriate to pause and acknowledge the contributions of public schools to the Lone Star State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 83rd Texas Legislature hereby recognize March 4 through 8, 2013, as Public Schools Week and encourage all Texans to express their appreciation for the invaluable work of these public institutions.
I certify that H.R. No. 691 was adopted by the House on March 13, 2013, by a non-record vote.
"For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places." Ephesians 6:12.
As Pope Leo XIII explained in his Encyclical HUMANUM GENUS 'On Freemasonry' in 1884,
"We wish it to be your rule first of all to tear away the mask from Freemasonry, and to let it be seen as it really is; and by sermons and pastoral letters to instruct the people as to the artifices used by societies of this kind in seducing men and enticing them into their ranks, and as to the depravity of their opinions and the wickedness of their acts. As Our predecessors have many times repeated, let no man think that he may for any reason whatsoever join the masonic sect, if he values his Catholic name and his eternal salvation as he ought to value them. Let no one be deceived by a pretense of honesty. It may seem to some that Freemasons demand nothing that is openly contrary to religion and morality; but, as the whole principle and object of the sect lies in what is vicious and criminal, to join with these men or in any way to help them cannot be lawful."
In another declaration on Freemasonry in 1902, Pope Leo XIII said "Filled with the spirit of Satan, who knows how to transform himself into an angel of light, Freemasonry puts forward as its pretended aim the good of humanity. Paying a lip service to the authority of law, and even to the obligations of religion, it aims (as its own statutes declare), at the destruction of civil authority and of the Christian priesthood, both of which it regards as the foes of human liberty." - Parvenu a la Vingtcinquieme annee, Given in Rome at St. Peter's, to March 19, 1902, twenty-fifth year of Our Pontificate.
Monsignor George F Dillon wrote a book on this, titled The War of Anti-Christ With the Church and Christian Civilization. As Wikipedia explains, "George F. Dillon was a 19th-century Catholic missionary and writer from Ireland. He became well known in 1884 for having given conferences in Edinburgh about what he claimed to be a Masonic war against Christian civilization. His speeches were later compiled with his best known book�War of Anti-Christ with the Church and Christian Civilization�after being read a summary Pope Leo XIII approved of the work and funded the publication of the Italian version."
Regarding the masons, Pope Pius VIII said "Their Law is Untruth: Their God is the Devil and their Cult is Turpitude." Pope Pius XII, in his Address to the Seventh Week Pastoral Adaptation Conference in Italy (1958) said "...the roots of modern apostasy lay in scientific atheism, dialectical materialism, rationalism, illuminism, laicism, and Freemasonry - which is the mother of them all."
DECLARATION ON MASONIC ASSOCIATIONS
NOTE: The following is the most recent decree from the Vatican on the subject of Freemasonry and is thus is the most current statement of the Church's law on this topic:
Issued by the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on November 26, 1983.
It has been asked whether there has been any change in the Church's decision in regard to Masonic associations since the new Code of Canon Law does not mention them expressly, unlike the previous Code.
This Sacred Congregation is in a position to reply that this circumstance is due to an editorial criterion which was followed also in the case of other associations likewise unmentioned inasmuch as they are contained in wider categories.
Therefore the Church's negative judgment in regard to Masonic associations remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden. The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion.
It is not within the competence of local ecclesiastical authorities to give a judgment on the nature of Masonic associations which would imply a derogation from what has been decided above, and this in line with the Declaration of this Sacred Congregation issued on 17 February 1981 (cf. AAS 73  pp. 240-241).
In an audience granted to the undersigned Cardinal Prefect, the Supreme Pontiff John Paul II approved and ordered the publication of this Declaration which had been decided in an ordinary meeting of this Sacred Congregation. Rome, from the Office of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, 26 November 1983.
JOSEPH Card. RATZINGER Prefect + Fr. JEROME HAMER, O.P. Titular Archbishop of Lorium Secretary
"Buried in a document of the Pontifical Council for Culture, dated March 13, 2004, is this surprising observation concerning the state of religious belief in the world: "A certain cultural hostility is being spread against religions, especially Christianity and Catholicism in particular, notably through the means of social communication, and is promoted by Masonic sources active in different organisations."
"...When all is said and done, Liberty has always meant emancipation from the claims of the Catholic Church on men and nations, or what Pierre Manent has called "the Church's complete subordination to the body politic."[x] Hence the incessant propaganda of colonial pamphleteers against "Popery" had the same object as the outright genocide of the Catholic hierarchy by the Jacobins of France: the suppression of what Pope Leo called "the power of that divine religion which the Freemasons hate in proportion to their fear of it." The Masonic mind's hatred and fear of Christ and His Church was summed up in Voltaire's famous epithet "ecrasons l'infame!" ("let us crush the infamous one"). The Lodge of Nine Muses inducted Voltaire into the Craft in 1778. In attendance was his American Masonic brother, Benjamin Franklin. [Masonic Family Values ]
John F. Kennedy, the nation's first and only Roman Catholic president, gave this speech sortly before he was assassinated:
"The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarrented concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating it's arbitrary actions. Even today, there is little value in assuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control."
President John F Kennedy Secret Society Speech
"Listen to this incredible audio recording of a speech made by JFK before the American Newspaper Publishers Association where he warns the press about the secret societies that are the real power in global affairs."
Founding Fathers Speak Out Against Freemasonry
"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it." -PATRICK HENRY
John Quincy Adams, The Sixth President of The United States said: "I am prepared to complete the demonstration before God and man, that the Masonic oaths, obligations and penalties, cannot, by any possibility, be reconciled to the laws of morality, of Christianity, or of the land." J.Q. Adam's letter to Ed. Livingston.
Samuel Adams, The Father of the Revolution said: "I am decidedly opposed to all secret societies whatever!"
John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress said: "I am opposed to all secret societies."
James Madison, The Fourth President of the United States said: "From the number and character of those who now support the charges against Freemasonry, I cannot doubt that it is at least susceptible of abuse, outweighing any advantages promised by its patrons."
Freemasons: Their Own Words Convict Them

Aleister Crowley was a proud satan worshipper and 33rd degree freemason, which go hand in hand.
In one of his last letters before his death, freemason Thomas Jefferson wrote:
"May it be to the world, what I believe it will be (to some parts sooner, to others later, but finally to all), the signal of arousing men to burst the chains under which monkish ignorance and superstition had persuaded them to bind themselves, and to assume the blessings and security of self-government."

Photograph by Gabriel Moulin, 1915
"To purge himself of worldly concerns, a member of the elite Bohemian Club participated in a 1915 Cremation of Care ceremony - complete with candles and a robed and hooded comrade to guide him. This private club of influential men still meets annually north of San Francisco and uses this symbolic ritual to kick off its summer retreat. But today the ceremony involves burning a mummy-like effigy named Care at the foot of the group's mascot: a 40-foot-tall (12-meter-tall) concrete owl."

BEHIND THE LODGE DOOR
Church, State and Freemasonry in America. Paul A. Fisher. The Devil is the Father of Lies and lying is the way of those who do the work of the Devil. This book traces the secret activities of Freemasonry in America and uncovers the lie that Masonry is a harmless fraternal organization of men who spend their time doing innocent things such as holding parades, dinners and circuses, or conducting business deals during card games. Instead, we find these men doing the work of the Devil by conducting an unrelenting warfare against Christ and His Church. Their hatred of the Catholic Church in America is exposed in detail with the decisions of Supreme Court Judges, Presidents, Congressmen and Senators who were Masons. This book makes clear that the furor over Supreme Court appointments is, in reality, a battle for the soul of the American people. This is one of the best books for the average man-in-the-street that we have ever seen on this subject. Learn how God became banned in American schools. How the threat of Catholic influence terrifies Masons. See how they act in Catholic countries and during times of conflict, such as at the Civil War and World War I. Names names. Learn the history of America from another viewpoint - through the actions of famous American leaders who were also anti-Catholic. Tremendous detailed research with hundreds of footnotes. Contains information that will be shocking to most readers! A most valuable exposure! 361pp. PB. ITEM #10050 $21.00 [Available at Catholic Treasures bookstore.]

Secret Societies and Satanic Movements By Robert H. Goldsborough
"We wish it to be your rule first of all to tear away the mask from Freemasonry and to let it be seen as it really is" warned Pope Leo XIII in his monumental encyclical Human Genus( 1884). Referring to Masonry as "this foul plague," Leo XIII urged pastoral sermons warning the Faithful that Masonry and related secret societies were "seducing men and enticing them into their ranks" in order to fill them with "the depravity of their opinions and the wickedness of their acts". Leo XIII was by no means the first Pope to warn of the evils of Freemasonry. Pope Clement XII had been the first to do so in 1738, then Benedict XIV, Pius VI, Leo XII, Pius VII, Pius VIII, Gregory XVI, and Pius IX. In Human Genus, Leo XIII emphasized the urgency of the earlier warnings and stated that the Freemasons "are boldly rising up against God Himself. They are planning the destruction of Holy Church ... and this with the set purpose of utterly despoiling the nations of Christendom ..."
