  Wiccan Religion Started by aFreemason! Photo to Left: Freemason, and founder of modern Wiccan witch revival,Gerald Gardner. Gerald Brosseau Gardner (June 13, 1884 -February 12, 1964) wasa Freemason, an English hereditary Witch and largely responsiblefor reviving Witchcraft in the modern Western world. Gardnerclaimed to trace his roots to a Witch named Grissell Gardner whohad been burned at the stake in 1610 at Newburgh.Gardner suffered severely with asthma from an early age and required a nurse toattend to his needs. Nurse Josephine Com McCombie brought along young Gardner onher various trips to Europe and Ceylon, where he worked on a tea plantation. Geraldlater worked and traveled to Borneo and Malaysia. In Ceylon between 1905 -1908,Gardner became a Freemason, Sphinx Lodge 113, I.C., Colombo.Between 1920 and 1923 Gardner studies native lore, magic, and weaponry in Malaysia.In 1926 through to 1932 Gardner takes up amateur Archaeology; proves the existenceof a Malaysian civilization predating the coming of the Portuguese in 1687; returns toEngland and marries Donna Rosedale, a nurse; frequents the British Museum toresearch Welsh and Basque folklore; encounters a whole host of Spiritualist mediums;and visits an archaeological dig at Gaza in Egypt, prehistoric caves in France, andEngland.In England before the Second World War, Gerald was involved with the Fellowship of Crotona -an occult group of Co-Masons -and met people who introduced him intoWitchcraft. The Fellowship of Crotona was a secret society within a secret society; theinner circle claimed to be hereditary Witches. In 1939, Gardner was initiated into theNew Forest coven by high priestess Old Dorothy Clutterbuck.It was in 1940 at a large gathering of many covens that a legendary event was to takeplace:“In June 1940 when England faced invasion from the Nazis, Gardner claimsthat the high priestess of his coven called a huge gathering of witches in theNew Forest where the Great Circle was erected. This was a magical ritualonly performed in cases of extreme emergency. Previously it had only beenraised twice, in 1588 to combat the Spanish Armada, which was defeatednot only by Drake and his ships but with the help of a great storm, and inthe 1800s when it looked as if Napoleon would cross the Channel. The ritualin the forest involvedraising a cone of psychic powerand directing it   Page 1 of 3Wiccan Religion Started by a Freemason!1/27/2012http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religions/Wicca%20&%20Witchcraft/wicca-fre...  towards the French coast with the command, ‘You cannot cross the sea. Youcannot cross the sea. You cannot come.’According to Gardner this ritualinvolved the use of the life force of the gathered covens and as a resultseveral elderly witches died. The ritual was repeated four times and thenthe Elders said ‘We must stop. We must not kill too many of our people.’”-The Occult Conspiracy : Secret Societies—Their Influence and Power inWorld History, p. 139By 1951 the last of the English laws against witchcraft were repealed and throughoutthe 50s into the 60s Gardner published some widely read books on the rituals andtraditions of the New Forest covens. This laid out the seeds of what would eventuallybe known as Gardnerian Wicca. The resurgence of the Old Religion spread likewildfire and continues unabated.Gardnerian Wicca borrows very heavily from Freemasonry, Tantric Hinduism and atouch of ceremonial magick. Gardnerian covens are always headed by a High Priestessand have three degrees of initiation closely paralleling the Masonic degrees. Worship iscentered on The Goddess and The Horned God. Eight seasonal Sabbats are observed,and the Wiccan Rede is the guiding principle. Sources: z the MYSTICA.ORG,Gardner, Gerald B.
