Richard Fletcher of MSA on Initiative Radio

"Initiative Radio", a radio program hosted by Angelea McKenzie, interviewed R:.W:. Richard Fletcher, Executive Secretary of the Masonic Service Association this week. Dick is a past Grand Master of Vermont.

The program will air nationally on outlets of National Public Radio, Pacifica Radio, Public Radio International and some college stations.

From the program's description:

Anti-Masonic hype is alive on the internet and continues to target successful pop music stars like Jay-Z, Rihanna and Lady Gaga, by accusing them of serving a Masonic/Satanic master through their song lyrics and the images in their music videos.

To get to the bottom of what the Freemasons are about, Angela McKenzie sits down with venerable Freemason Richard Fletcher, to learn about the origins and evolution of the craft; about the dual meaning of Masonic symbols like the trowel; about the significance of rituals like the Three Degrees and about the fraternity's secret handshakes which have been a mode of recognition since the seventeenth century. Fletcher also discusses America's original celebrity Mason George Washington; the charitable works of the Masons and he also does his level best to squash fears that Freemasonry has anything to do with witchcraft or devil worship
