Bp. Soddu of Italy and Freemasonry (Liberal Bishop Part 109)

Bp Soddu shows Church support for Freemasonry in co-inaugurating a Masonic Lodge.

Is dialogue with Freemasonry on the agenda in the Synod on Synodality? Well, Pope Francis accepts LGBT, so why not Freemasonry. Indeed, he shares many principles with Freemasonry, especially on international brotherhood and human fraternity.

Freemasonry is anti-Church and has been consistently condemned by the Popes. Except now with Pope Francis.



Grand Master insults Church by praising battle that ended Catholic rule

TERNI, Italy ( - An Italian bishop has come under fire for inaugurating a Masonic lodge along with the grand master of Italy's biggest Freemasonic organization.

Francesco Antonio Soddu, bishop of the diocese of Terni-Narni-Amelia, joined Grand Master Stefano Bisi of the Grand Orient of Italy last Tuesday in the ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the GOI lodge in Terni, a city about 102 kilometers (63 miles) from Rome.

Several high-ranking Freemasons also helped inaugurate the new entrance of the three-story building on historic Via Roma di Terni, a road that has undergone extensive renovation with the addition of a second temple.

Anti-Catholic Tirade

Instead of appreciating the prelate's presence, Bisi used his inaugural address to humiliate the Catholic Church by calling for the anti-papal event of Sept. 20, 1870, to be immortalized as a national holiday in Italy. Papal rule over the Eternal City ended on that date, when the Italian army bombarded the city walls and entered through a breach in the wall near the Porta Pia.

"Today, as in the past, our goal is always the same — to celebrate all the battles of freedom, starting with the one that in 1870, with the breach of Porta Pia, put an end to the dominion of the Church, favoring the birth of a free and secular Italy," Bisi thundered. "Our final goal is and remains that of universal brotherhood, the realization of a future of peace and cooperation of peoples where all are brothers of all."
