MIDI 'Nobles of the Mystic Shrine', by Brother John Philip Sousa

'We do it all for the kids'

The Shrine's Ritual is taken from an Arabic Sufi Secret Society

Freemasonry & Qaballah Occultism owe much to Sufism
The Muslim Brotherhood is a Sufi Secret Society

The Shriners' Recognition Test

benevolent and secret. It is devoted to the cause of justice, truth and
mercy. It is ancient as the corner-stone of Mohammed's Temple of Mecca;
as secret as the Moslem that bound the tribes of Arabia to Allah or their
god; as honorable as the Christian, and the tenets to which it is dedicated
when once assumed cannot be eschewed or cast aloof. ...We require
absolute secrecy and desire all our disciples to hold and interest in our
noble cause and a just observance of the tenets of our faith. ...By the
existence of Allah and the creed of Mohammed; by the legendary sanctity
of our Tabernacle at Mecca we greet you, (p. 17-18)

Grand Potentate--

Who is he who hath professed to have conversed in person with the

Supreme and maketh himself mightiest of his Mohammed, the Prophet of
the Arab's creed? (p. 18)

Priest --

There are Moslems among us; there are others who swerve from propriety;
but whoso seeketh Islam earnestly seeks true direction; but those who
swerve from truth and justice shall merit and reap abundance of
chastisement. (p. 19)


...I do hereby, upon this Bible, and on the mysterious legend of the Koran,
and its dedication to the Mohammedan faith, promise and swear and vow
on the faith and honor of an upright man,... (p. 20)

...and now upon this sacred book, by the sincerity of a Moslem's oath I
here register this irrevocable vow, subscribing myself bound thereto as well
as binding myself by the obligation of the prerequisite to this membership
m that of a Knight Templar or that of a thirty-second degree A. and A,
Scottish Rite Mason. ... may Allah, the god of Arab Moslem and
Mohammedan, the god of our fathers, support me to the entire fulfillment
of the same, Amen, Amen, Amen. (p. 22)

Priest --

And may Allah protect and support you, that you be not cast into 'al
hotama' (hell).... (p. 24)

Conductor --

This is the place where our brethren stop to sprinkle the Devil's Pass with
urine. You will contribute a few drops of urine to commemorate the time
and place where all who pass here renounce the wiles and evils of the
world to worship at the Shrine of Islam. Only a few drops will do. (p. 28)


...This sign must be given on entering and retiring. Word of entrance given
to Outer Guardian, Mecca. Word of entrance given to Inside Guardian,
Nemesis (the pagan Greek goddess of punishment). (p. 40)

They claim about 300 Million Dollars a year to hospitals and

other institutions, which is good but not that much,
considering that if every Mason contributes just 5 Dollars per
week, they can collect 1.3 Billion Dollars per year... they are a
good way to deceive the outsiders, like its secrecy, it is often a
cloak to hide its real teachings and goals, and a good way to
obtain propaganda... and even the so called "charity" is a way
to get money for the Order: In 1985, "Circuses" of the
Shriners generated 23 Million Dollars, and only 2% went to
medical care of children. In 1984, out of 17 Million Dollars
only 1% went to charity, the rest for the Order!

World’s worst charities

Last Update: 12/27/2004

By: Stacy Johnson

There’s no question that without charitable works, the world would be a worse place to
live. And that’s all the more reason that when we give money to a non-profit group,
we need to make sure it’s the right one.

The American Institute of Philanthropy is one of several national charity watchdog

organizations. It recently published its report card on 100 “failing” charities… charities
that the AIP would not recommend you donate money to.

And you might be surprised at some of the results. Top failing charities in AIP’s

1. Research to Prevent Blindness

2. Shriners Hospitals for Children
3. Seeing Eye
4. Guide Dogs for the Blind
5. Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch
6. Diabetes Trust Fund
7. Give Kids the World
The 1998 National Charity Report for the Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic
Shrine - 'The Shrine', recorded a staggering 8 Billion Dollars in Assets, a 1.2 Billion
Dollar increase over the previous year. Interestingly however only a mere 6 percent or
500 Million Dollars of that asset base was fixed assets - it's hospitals and rehabilitation
facilities. The other 94 percent is listed simply as investments.

Also the Shriners posted an amazing 233 Million Dollar profit for the same year.
Furthermore this proft was of staggering proportions in relation to the amount it spent
on program services. In fact the profit almost equalled the 310 Million the Shrine spent
on all it's hospitals and care giving for the entire year.

In 2001 the Shrine announced another fundraising drive, despite already enjoying a
massive operating surplus, using a glitzy national advertising televison and radio
campaign featuring celebrity endorsements. The reality is this was likely a P.R.
campaign or membership drive for Freemasonry's leading and most prominent
organization, The Shrine, because of the staggering excess of funds raised over funds
expended they already were enjoying. The Shrine didn't need the money, they had a
massive annual operating surplus exceeding $200 million dollars, so why the huge new
campaign? What was it's purpose?

The largest charity in North America continues to convey a much lower percentage of
it's revenues to program services than charities such as the Red Cross and Easter
Seals, where the percentage of funds going to end users is 80% or better.

However the Red Cross and Easter Seals don't have Temples which contain private
bars, dinning and meeting rooms, nor Regional Golf & Country Club Recreation Centres
for it's membership across the country to maintain, subsidise, or enjoy. Membership
has it's privledges.

Inapproptiate use of Sick Children Transportation Fund for Social Gatherings

Sept. 25, 2006

'The Divan and their wives got their travels reimbursed by the Transportation Fund. it
had money.. with the lame statement that they were spreading the word about the
Hospitals. At Imperial and at the Region Shrine Conventions.. this was in the range of
$10,000 for the year depending on where the events took place. Las Vegas..
Vancouver.. the CPA said he was praying no one looked at the tax return and saw the
money going to a Casino in Vegas'

Health and Legal concerns of Shriner 'Hot Sands' Initiation Hazing Ritual

Sept. 25, 2006


As long as we continue to allow practices, such as the hot sands, in the Shrine, we will
continue to dig our own grave for Shrinedom. And the Directors Staff units that help
put them on, should be renamed the "Funeral Directors Staff."

I'm sure by now, the subject line and that first sentence have raised the blood
pressure of more than a few people. No doubt, some on this very list will fire back
some highly emotionally charged reply defending the hot sands, criticizing me, extolling
the bonding benefits of events such as the hot sands, reporting how THEY walked the
sands and "all good Shriners should do likewise", etc..... (I'll bet that some are already
writing a reply without reading the rest of this!)

However, all that has been said and all that may be said does not change the fact that
we DO live in a very litigious society. Is it really going to take a major lawsuit
(actually, as I understand it, we've already had some) which will cast a very black eye
on our hospitals, to shut the hot sands down once and for all? Do you honestly think
that we are immune from someone having a heart attack and dieing during the hot
sands, based on how they operate? And if you think the "medical exam" that is given
before allowing people to walk the sands is adequate to defend us in court, you have
another think coming to you... Can you see the headlines in your local paper? Can you
hear the national news anchor telling that story? Do you honestly think if (when) some
tragedy occurs that it won't SEVERELY impact the hospitals? If you think that it WON'T
impact us, please oh please, explain why. I'd love to hear that argument.

If the hot sands are okay, then why close the ceremony to non-Shriners? Invite the
press! If it's that much fun, then the more, the merrier! Right? Wrong!!

Behaviour at Shriners Conventions

Sept. 25, 2006

Shriners Convention Center Worker: 'As long as I don’t have to be in the same room
as those b****** Shriners! They are nothing but a bunch of foul mouthed dirty old
men who grab at anyone wearing a skirt'
Welfare Act (AWA). The USDA has cited Shrine Circus exhibitors for failure to
provide veterinary care, adequate shelter from the elements, nutritious food, and
clean water, as well as failure to handle animals in a manner that prevents trauma
and harm and ensures public safety. Animals used by Shrine Circus have caused
deaths and injuries. Contact PETA for documentation.

May 29, 2000: The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that Shriners membership had
dropped to 528,000 by 1999, from a peak of 940,000 in the 1980s.

April 29, 2000: The Tebala Shrine in Rockford, Ill., reneged on assurances that it would
not use exotic animals in the circus. Elephants, tigers, and lions were featured.

April 13, 2000: An elephant named Tina used in Shrine Circuses was quarantined after
testing positive for a human strain of tuberculosis.

February 11, 2000: The Albuquerque, N.M., shrine reneged on a promise to use an

named Misty.

January 26, 2000: A 4,500-pound female African elephant named Kenya, who had been
featured in Shrine Circuses, attacked and killed a circus worker in Florida. The 18-year-
old elephant knocked her to the ground and crushed her.

October 15, 1999: The San Antonio Express-News reported, "The money coming
from this weekend's [Alzafar Shrine] circus proceeds does not go toward the 22
childrens hospitals in the United States, Mexico, and Canada."

April 29, 1999: As a result of sustaining multiple injuries from an elephant while
performing for the Shrine Circus in Duluth, Minn., an animal handler was hospitalized in
serious condition.

March 1999: An evaluation by the Council of Better Business Bureaus determined

that the Shriners did not meet its standards, which recommend that at least 50
percent of a charitys income be spent on programs directly related to the
organizations stated purpose. According to the evaluation, Shriners had spent only
24 percent on program services.

February 1999: During a risk management presentation to the Shrine Treasurers

Association of North America, the Shriners learned that they had been provided by a
circus insurance agent with a fraudulent certificate of insurance on a policy that did not
exist after an attendee was injured at a Shrine Circus.

November 13, 1998: The same tiger used in Shrine Circuses who killed his trainer on
October 8, 1998, attacked and killed his owner in Newberry, Fla. The tiger was shot

October 8, 1998: A tiger attacked and killed his trainer in Newberry, Fla. The tiger, who
had been featured in numerous Shrine Circuses, grabbed the trainer by the throat.

May 15, 1997: A transient who came to Omaha, Neb., with the Shrine Circus was
convicted of second-degree murder. The victims partially nude, badly decomposed body
was found on June 16, 1995. She had been beaten to death with a chunk of concrete.

April 13, 1997: A spooked elephant performing at a Shrine Circus in the city of Calgary
in Alberta, Canada, slapped a handler with her trunk and bit him on the head and back,
causing injuries serious enough to require hospitalization.

March 18, 1997: A bear with the Shrine Circus in Grand Rapids, Mich., bit off the
tip of a 2-year-old childs finger. There were no safety barriers around the bear
cages, and 30 other children had been petting the bear.

August 20, 1994: An elephant named Tyke who had rampaged at the Altoona, Pa.,
Shrine Circus on April 21, 1993, killed her trainer while performing in Honolulu, Hawaii,
stomped on a circus groom, and injured a dozen spectators.

April 1994: Three children were injured when an elephant giving rides at a Shrine-
sponsored circus in Muskegon, Mich., fell into the passenger loading platform, spilling the
riders and bending the platform.

August 8, 1993: A Tucson, Ariz., Shrine Circus clown was arrested on charges of
molesting three girls, ages 6, 7, and 10, he met at the circus.

April 21, 1993: An elephant named Tyke charged through an arena entryway during a
Shrine Circus performance in Altoona, Pa., ripping away part of the wall and causing
10,000 Thousand Dollars in damage. More than 3,000 children were in the audience, and
one young girl was injured.

July 8, 1990: A 600-pound tiger terrified hundreds of children and their parents when he
ran loose for 15 minutes at the Shrine Circus at Mississaugas Square One mall in Ontario,

1978: A Hawthorn Corporation elephant performing in Chicago with the Shrine Circus
picked up her trainer with her trunk and threw him into a pillar, killing him.

Organizers of the Shriners' Motor Patrol "V.I.P. Gentlemen's Dinner," attended by more
than 400 men, told the Free Press on Friday that proceeds from the event would be used
to cover motor patrol operations and support Shrine children's charities.

The Manitoba Liquor Control Commission has launched an investigation, while the
Winnipeg Police Service said it will investigate if formal complaints are brought to them.

But Greasley said the local organization itself, affiliated with 525,000 male members
belonging to 191 Shrine Temples across North America, is working quickly at damage

At least one of the charity's major supporters, Canada Safeway, is looking for answers.

One member of the Daughters of the Nile, one of the women's arms of the Shriners, said
yesterday she was "very disappointed" when she read about the event in the Free Press.

"I don't understand the whole thing," she said. "Being a woman, I read it with disgust.

Yesterday, the only three patrons drinking at the Shriners' Temple on Wilkes Avenue
refused comment.

Diane McGifford, provincial minister responsible for the status of women, said she will be
talking tomorrow with Justice Minister Gord Mackintosh about the incident.

"It appears something very degrading to women took place," McGifford said.

"What seems apparent is although many people believe that men and women enjoy equal
opportunities and are equally valued, that doesn't seem to be the case".

McGifford said she hopes there were many men at the event who were disgusted with
the goings-on.

"They have daughters and wives too," she said.

Noting the Shriners raise money so sick or burned Manitoba children can go out of
province for help, McGifford said: "It just seems ironic of them -- we're going to help one
group by dehumanizing another group".

Naomi Levine, a Winnipeg lawyer and workplace dispute consultant, said she's shocked
not only at the sex acts which went on at the banquet, but also at the fact that it
involved Shriners.

"It's extremely disappointing to see the Shriners can be so injudicious," Levine said. "It's
certainly not consistent with the way they present themselves.

"It smacks of indignity. It smacks of exploitation. There's just nothing positive about this
and these are the persons who put on circuses for kids.

"They should grease their brains and not their wheels".

Winnipeg Free Press Editorial

Shrine circus

IT is unlikely that Manitobans will think about the Shrine Circus in quite the same way in
the future as they did in the past. Is the Shrine circus the wholesome, three-ring affair
sponsored annually by the local Khartum Shrine Temple, the circus of cotton candy and
childish cries of delight at the hijinks of performing animals and clowns? Or is it the
private Shrine circus where clowns of a different sort engage in sordid and perhaps
criminal behaviours and where the cries are of pain inflicted to the genitals of naked,
perhaps drunken women by louts with grubby hands and beer bottles?

Khartum Temple did not authorize the so-called VIP Gentlemen's Dinner that attracted
about 400 men to the Garden City Canad Inn last week. That event was organized by a
branch that operates the Shriners' Motor Patrol, those seemingly loopy men in fezzes
who ride miniature cars and motorcycles in parades. It stretches credulity, however, to
think that everyone within the charity's membership, and especially the executive
charged with maintaining its reputation, was unaware of what goes on at the annual
stag. Clearly, base behaviour injurious to the organization's charter and noble purposes
Vaughan was knocked unconscious.

Theodore Corsones, lawyer for the national Shriners' organization, said he could not
comment on the case but that his own initiation as a Shriner was spiritually uplifting. He
said he toured a Shriners hospital for crippled children.

"As for what went on in Lexington, I haven't the foggiest because I wasn't there,"
Corsones said.

Rules are issued each year on proper initiation techniques, he said.

Robert E. Manley, whose Cincinnati law firm specializes in fraternity law, said at least 35
states, including Kentucky, have laws that ban hazing. Manley is not involved in
Vaughan's lawsuit.

Manely said he wasn't sure if Kentucky's hazing law would apply to the Shrine case. But
if the allegations are true, Vaughan could file an assault and battery complaint, he said.

So ... before anyone goes all high and mighty and takes offense ... the ones who yell
the loudest are usually the ones who are perpetrating the deed.

The cure is simple if you are innocent ... disclose now ... and do so as completely as
possible. It is, after all, a charity involved here and disclosure, at least to the Nobles,
should be a way of life.
