   Masonic American Presidents to 1948 A.D.

In addition to the listed American presidents who are known to be Masons are Gerald Ford and George H. Bush. Many other presidents are believed to also have been Freemasons (openly or secretly) or secret members of related organizations. Former president William Clinton and current president George W. Bush are included in this category. Others such as Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses Grant were scheduled to become Masons but death interfered.

The LARGEST of Two Atomic Bombs used in the 2nd World War
was dropped on the only CHRISTIAN populated city in Japan.

   President Truman's birthplace - the Mason who ATOMIC bombed the Catholic Christian City of Nagasaki, Japan on 9 August 1945 – Click for Article

Four military targets in Japan were chosen as targets to drop two atomic bombs. One of these cities, Kyoto, was removed from the list because of its religious and historical significance to Japan. The only city with a large population of Christians was chosen as a replacement even though it had far less strategic military significance.
The largest of the two bombs dropped on Japan was reserved for Christian Nagasaki, the city with the least military importance of the four. This city was chosen with the approval of President Harry Truman – a Past Grand Master of Masonry (both of his grandfathers had been Masons) – by Henry Stimson, the Secretary of War. Stimpson had been appointed to office by President Roosevelt, a Mason, who had chosen (or had been directed to choose) another Mason as Vice-President.
    In 1935, Franklin Roosevelt sent General Douglas MacArthur to be the military advisor to the Philippine president. His job was to build an army, because he knew that someday the Japanese would attack and they had to be ready.


In times of war and peace Masons pervert justice in pursuit of their own goals and for the protection offered against penalties warranted by personal acts. Masonic allegiance is to their brotherhood. Their goals encompass self-aggrandizement, profit, and control of the world through deception or any means available that serves their purposes. Due to a committed atrocity and resultant masonic activities, media and religious leaders led an anti-masonic movement in the 1830's. Prior to this masons were at least 200,000 strong. In 1964 there were over four million influential American members in the society with a high percentage that are considered wealthy or in control of wealth. This figure does not include those in related organizations. The current enrollment is much higher.

While allegedly the United States is a free society, the truth is that our election process and therefore our government is highly controlled by the masonic brotherhood. Our elections are controlled by wealth (fund raising) and the wealth of the nation is highly controlled by freemasonry.

No more than can a leopard change its spots or a tiger its stripes will freemasonry change its goal of achieving world domination. This remains true regardless of the presentations it makes or the posturing it presents to the public in the form of charitable works. In the 1850's freemasonry restored its public image by establishing charities (some reports indicate that a high percentage of donated funds are used for their own entertainment. The IRS seemingly ignores investigating them. Most masonic lodges are tax exempt. No doubt many government offices have been filled by masons who then have control of the actual distribution of tax receipts - both reported and unreported. This last inference should not be hard to accept due to the large numbers of masons in the country and the easy potential (fact) for coordination in activities of public office.).

Their goal is not charity but rather the restoration of their image. In this way they could continue their quest for self-determination and world domination during peace; through war or civil disturbance when it advanced their purposes. Note: Wars not only provide profit for armaments manufacturers and munitions dealers but also serves to disrupt the politics of governments thus making control more easily obtainable. Wars and other conflicts can also provide a boost to troubled national economies. To achieve their goals they would have little concern for the disruption of family life, or the suffering and deaths of millions. Their own membership would have little concern as they would be protected from the draft or given safe assignments away from front line fighting; at least those in the higher ranks of freemasonry.

Was it just a coincidence that Americans became involved
in so many wars under the jurisdiction of masonry?

  1. Revolutionary War – provoked by the Boston Tea Party reported to be the activity of Masons. Benjamin Franklin, Paul Revere, George Washington, John Hancock, Alexander Hamilton, Patrick Henry, and some of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were Masons. It has been authentically reported that all but two of the generals of the Revolutionary War were Masons.
  2. Civil WarAbraham Lincoln and Ulysses Grant were Masons in waiting.
  3. World War IIFranklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman were both Masons. It is long believed (known) that Roosevelt knew of the impending attack on Pearl Harbor but did nothing to notify the military in Hawaii.
  4. Korean War – Statement, dated June 27, 1950, by President Harry S. Truman (a Mason), announcing his order to send U.S. air and naval forces to help defend South Korea and explaining the rationale for his decision. War broke out along the 38th parallel on June 25, 1950. The entry of the United States into the conflict signaled a reversal of policy toward Korea. Although it backed the government of Syngman Rhee, the United States had begun withdrawing its troops from South Korea in 1948. As late as January of 1950, Secretary of State Dean Acheson had implied that the Korea Peninsula lay outside the all-important "defense perimeter" of the United States, a statement that some took to mean that the United States would not defend the ROK from communist attack.
  5. Viet Nam War – The continuing political problems in Saigon, however, convinced the new president, Lyndon Baines Johnson (a Mason), that more aggressive action was needed. Perhaps Johnson was more prone to military intervention or maybe events in Vietnam had forced the president's hand to more direct action. In any event, after suspected Communist attacks on two U.S. ships in the Gulf of Tonkin, the Johnson administration argued for expansive war powers for the president.
    Gulf of Tonkin Resolution - On August 2, 1964, in response to American and South Vietnamese espionage along its coast, North Vietnam launched a local and controlled attack against an American ship on call in the Gulf of Tonkin. A second attack was supposed to have taken place on August 4, although Vo Nguyen Giap the DRV's leading military figure at the time and Johnson's Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara have recently concluded that no second attack ever took place. In any event, the Johnson administration used the August 4 attack to secure a Congressional resolution that gave the president broad war powers.
  6. Persian Gulf War of 1991– Nov 20, 1990: 45 Democrats file suit in Washington to have President George H. Bush (a Mason) first seek Congressional approval of military operations - eventually thrown out. – January 16, 1991: The First US government statement of Operation Desert-Storm was made.
  7. With the foundation laid by President William Clinton –the United States was notified five years in advance by the Philippine Government that the events as they unfolded were going to take place– and completed under President George W. Bush  ( both are members of the Skull and Bones Society – Yale University – NOTE: Prime Minister Tony Blair of Great Britain, present at President Bush's Address to the Nation on 20 September 2001, is a member of a kindred organization; the Cecil Rhodes Scholars of Oxford University, England )  we now have the beginnings of the first war of the 21st century; a new type of war of infiltration and terrorism – a type of guerilla warfare. Bush says that this war is opposed to the murderous ideologies in the world and refers to fascism, nazism, and totalitarianism. But communism, the most murderous of all ideologies, is not mentioned – some might consider this an omission on the part of President Bush in his speech, but, it leaves open the masonic ideal of a one world union of governments not under the influence of Christian principles.

During the 19th century Masons were preached against by Protestant ministers because of their evil deeds and goals (the Catholic Church had long condemned Freemasonry). Many masonic lodges had to close. Having to rebuild their public image they chose to do fund raising for charitable works – it has been reported that much of these funds is used for entertainment. However, their agendums have remained unaltered.

    Gruesome penalties to be imposed for breaking masonic oath.  Part of oath and penalties.

    Masonic lodges were schools for government with secret handshakes and passwords.

    The masonic world view.  All men are created equal with certain unalienable rights. Among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These are fine ideals when placed into proper perspective. Unfortunately masons and associates believe that they are entitled to preferential shares of these rights.

    Concepts commonly found in masonic writings. The key words of free masonry are liberty, fraternity, and equality;

    1. Liberty - to choose as they desire for their own purposes;
    2. Fraternity - a brotherhood that primarily serves the advancement of its own membership and the development of its goals;
    3. Equality - first among its own membership and then concerning others so long as it does not interfere with Masonic activities. It is only at the highest levels of masonry that membership is privy to the entirety of its goals.
         Literature containing the concepts of liberty, fraternity, and equality are commonly of masonic origin. Note: Masonic rules state that one member may not have sexual relationship with another member's wife. This limitation is clearly not in accordance with the sound principles of moral religions that are opposed to adultry, period.

      Pope Leo XIIIHumanum Genus - Encyclical on Freemasonry - Promulgated on April 20, 1884: § 34.  Amongst the many benefits to be expected from it will be the great benefit of drawing the minds of men to liberty, fraternity, and equality of right; not such as the Freemasons absurdly imagine, but such as Jesus Christ obtained for the human race and St. Francis aspired to:
      1. the liberty, We mean, of sons of God, through which we may be free from slavery to Satan or to our passions, both of them most wicked masters;
      2. the fraternity whose origin is in God, the common Creator and Father of all;
      3. the equality which, founded on justice and charity, does not take away all distinctions among men, but, out of the varieties of life, of duties, and of pursuits, forms that union and that harmony which naturally tend to the benefit and dignity of society.
      Pope John Paul II
      1. In a French airport, in 1980, John Paul II said: "We know the place that the ideas of liberty, equality and fraternity hold in your culture and in your history. Basically, these are Christian ideas."[DC June 15, 1980, p. 605.]
      2. When he was in Turkey, John Paul II said: "The faith in God that was professed by the spiritual descendants of Abraham, Christians, Moslems, and Jews . . . is an assured foundation for the dignity, fraternity and liberty of men."[DC December 16, 1979, p. 105.]
      3. In his General Audience on September 15, 1982, John Paul II said: "Jerusalem must become the city of man, in which the believers of the three great monotheistic religions - Christianity, Judaism, and Islam - live in full liberty and equality, as do the believers of other religious communities, in the recognized guarantee that this city is the sacred patrimony of all, and is destined for the adoration of the One God, of meditation and the work of fraternity." [Peter, Lovest Thou Me?, p. 199, 200; La Croix of September 17, 1982, p. 3.]

    Masonic Emblem Symbols of freemasonry.  The three great symbols of masonry are; The Bible, the Compass, and the Square. The compass and the square are tools used in layout and construction.  The "G" in masonic symbolism probably indicates association with either a "Grand Masonic Lodge" or to their multi-faced god whom they refer to as "Grand Architect of the Universe."    I have been informed via email, presumably by a mason (he did not identify himself) that the "G" stands for "Geometry."  This seems quite plausible as geometry is a science of planning, design, and layout. It is also used in measurements that accomplish the foregoing. Geometry can easily be seen as part of their worship as they are meticulous in making plans that will meet their goals even in the distant future. As a materialistic / humanistic organization they have no real concern regarding resurrection (a life after death). While masonic lodges in America have traditionally used the Bible as the centerpiece on their altars, the Judeo-Christian God is no longer given primacy of belief. Thus, the Bible is no longer given its centrality of recognition and its symbolism is overridden by the "G" standing for Planning, Accomplishment, and Tools (PAT [hand]). Another Masonic source reveals that the symbol "G" In reality represents the "generative principle," the Sun-god and, thus, the worshipped phallus, the male "generative principle..."

    Masonry is a non-denominational universalist religion. It accepts as members anyone who does not totally reject the existence of some sort of god. Satan worship is not excluded. Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, pagans, and satanist's are all equally acceptable. In lodges that have large numbers of Christians the Bible is the altar centerpiece; The Koran for Muslims; The Torah or Talmud for Jews, and so forth.

    Masonry – held to be of divine origin and taught to men divinely inspired.

    To become a Mason an initiate is ritually slain and resurrected.

                  Mason's mock the death and resurrection of Christ.
                  In effect they supplant Jesus and become gods in their own right.

    Masons deceptively renewed.  They distanced themselves from their reputation as a secret cabal (persons secretly united to bring about an overturn or usurpation especially in public affairs).

    Masons guardians of democracy.

    Masons acted as the high priests of the new republic.

    Masons systematically pervert justice.

    Symbols are Masons working tools.  Each tool indicates a path to enlightenment. The presentations made in regard to the more well known masonic symbols are used for recruitment purposes and therefore are deceptively high sounding.

    Masonic lodges became schools for government.

Masonic Membership Recruitment

Masonry, a secretive brotherhood, uses social clubs such as the Kiwanis International, Rotary International, and others as feeder organizations or recruitment centers to enlist new members in addition to referrals by their own members. At the top end of the secretive spectrum are three interrelated organizations that capitalize on their low key relationship with worldwide masonry. The founding group in Germany (Illuminati – University of Ingolstadt), the American group (Skull and Bones Society – Yale University.  NOTE: George H. Bush, William Clinton, and George W. Bush are all members), and the English Group (Cecil Rhodes Scholars – Oxford University.  NOTE: The Prime Minister of England, Tony Blair, is a member of this group.) are interrelated. It is not surprising that Clinton and Bush have both been chummy with Blair.

There are more than 8,400 Kiwanis clubs with over 600,000 members in more than 70 nations and geographic areas. It was founded in 1915 and headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. As a service organization they have committed themselves to a worthy goal, eliminating the devastating effects of iodine deficiency disorders (IDD). Membership consists of active or retired business and professional men and women. The average Kiwanis member is 55.1 years old, a college graduate, married, and a homeowner. He or she is an owner or manager of a firm in the $25 million or less range.

Rotary International is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide with a stated purpose of providing humanitarian service, encouraging high ethical standards in all vocations, and helping to build goodwill and peace in the world. In more than 160 countries worldwide, approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 30,000 Rotary clubs. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.

Throughout its history, Rotary International has collaborated with many civic and humanitarian organizations as well as the government agencies of various nations in its stated efforts to improve the human condition. An excellent example of what these partnerships can accomplish can be found in Rotary's ambitious PolioPlus program. Launched in 1985 in concert with the World Health Organization, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and UNICEF.

Rotary has had a special relationship with the United Nations for more than a half century. At the 1945 UN Charter Conference in San Francisco, California, USA, nearly 50 Rotarians served as delegates, advisors, and consultants. And the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), established one year later, can trace its roots to a Rotary conference promoting international cultural and educational exchanges that was held in London in 1943. In 1946, the same year UNESCO came into existence, RI was granted nongovernmental organization (NGO) consultative status with the UN and UNESCO. Today, a growing number of projects are implemented in collaboration with UN agencies around the world. Working with UNAIDS, Rotary clubs promote AIDS awareness and prevention. Venezuelan Rotary clubs are working with FAO field staff to increase vegetable and poultry production. Nigerian Rotary clubs are working with the UN Population Fund to expand a maternal education and child spacing program. In Poland, the UN Development Program helped the Rotary clubs of Warsaw and Duluth, Minnesota, USA, create a joint business internship program.

Rotary Representatives are appointed by the RI president to increase awareness and recognition of Rotary's programs, policies, and activities within the international community. RI Representatives, based in major cities around the world, monitor major events and meetings, exchanging information and acting as liaisons.
    Currently, RI Representatives are appointed to:
    1. The United Nations (New York, Geneva, Vienna)
    2. UNESCO
    3. Council of Europe
    4. Organization of African Unity
    5. UNCHS/Habitat and UN Environmental Programme
    6. UN Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Food Programme
    7. The World Bank
    8. Organization of American States
    Representatives often take proactive roles in events that are related to Rotary activities or program emphases. In the past two years, Rotary has presented examples of its humanitarian work at numerous events, including:
    1. EXPO 2000, Hannover, Germany — June through October 2000
    2. Second World Water Forum, The Hague, Netherlands — March 2000
    3. UN Commission on the Status of Women, New York, NY, USA — March 2000
    4. Hague Appeal for Peace, The Hague, Netherlands — May 1999
    5. Global Meeting of Generations, Washington, D.C., USA — January 1999
    6. WHO Executive Board Meeting, Geneva, Switzerland — January 1999
    7. UN General Assembly Special Session on Narcotics (UNDCP), New York, NY, USA — June 1998
    8. Seventh Conference of Ministers of Education of African Member States (MINEDAF VII), Durban, South Africa — April 1998
    9. UN Commission on Sustainable Development, New York, NY, USA — April 1998
    10. UNESCO/International Literacy Institute (ILI) Literacy Forum, Dakar, Senegal — March 1998

Rotary experienced a growth spurt in the early 1990s when it expanded into former Soviet bloc countries following the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Union. Beginning in 1989, clubs in Central and Eastern Europe that had been disbanded for more than 50 years were re-established, and the first Russian Rotary club was chartered in 1990.

Contemporary freemasonry became established during the early part of the 18th century in England. They have however manufactured a history dating back to the building of Solomon's Temple. Present-day freemasonry is an usurpation of the Middle Ages European guild system.

Disbelief remains as the single biggest factor working in Freemasonry's favor. Decent folk find it incomprehensible that there could be individuals so evil as to actually try to take control of the world on behalf of Lucifer. In Freemasonry everything has a double-meaning. Thus the candidate is practicing the occult throughout his degree work without knowing it. False interpretations are given to him to prevent him from suspecting the Craft to be anything less than "on the square." Another factor is that it rarely, if ever, does anything covert under its own name. In order to advance its agenda it establishes other organizations, to which it gives special assignments. – Only the 30th through the 33rd degrees of Freemasonry are privy to its Luciferian goals.

B'nai B'rith:  A secret Jewish Masonic Order meaning "Bothers of the Covenant" – (Samir Raafat, Insight Magazine, March 1, 1999).  The physical similarities between Masonic halls and B'nai B'rith lodges –a Judeo-Zionist organization fashioned upon the Masonic model– are far too obvious for anyone not to confound the two. Following the creation of the state of Israel in 1948, it was open season for opponents of Freemasonry to pursue their claims that Masonic halls were subversive and dangerous, bent on undermining Arab nationalism and patriotism. Not unlike the anti-Freemasonry whisper campaigns propagated by the Vatican in the middle of the last century and early this one, articles cropped up in the post-1948 Arab World "proving" the connection between Zionism and Freemasonry.

Masonic influence is so great that their members receive preferential
treatment and are placed into high government positions

Question:  Was Neil Armstrong selected to be the first to step onto the moon because he was a Mason? Masons seem disproportionately qualified for space flight. The following are reported as being Masons:
  1. Aldrin, Edwin E. "Buzz" - Astronaut
  2. Armstrong, Neil - Astronaut
  3. Cooper, Gordon - Astronaut
  4. Glenn, John - Astronaut
  5. Grissom, Virgil - Astronaut

Unfolding the Masonic Bombing of
Christian Nagasaki – 1945 A.D. – Date: Mon, 13 Aug 2001 10:59:19 -0400

Nagasaki, Mon Amour, | August 8, 2001, by Lowell Ponte.
URL: 01p.htm

EACH AUGUST THE DEBATE RETURNS, this year won masterfully by my Front Page Magazine brother columnist Ronald Radosh: Should the United States on August 6, 1945, have dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima? Given that the alternative would have required invasion of Japan and the deaths of perhaps a quarter-million Americans, a million or more Japanese, and prolonged suffering on both sides, most moral people answer Yes, we should have dropped the bomb. We had only three bombs, one to test and two to use and none to spare on a demonstration for the Emperor.

But we should also ponder a very different question whose answer reveals much about American politics 56 years after the event: Why did the United States three days later drop a second atom bomb targeted specifically on Nagasaki? The answer might surprise or even horrify you.
Nagasaki reportedly was not on the original target list for nuclear extermination.
By late July 1945 military and Manhattan Project officials had selected four atom bomb targets. One was Hiroshima, an industrial center and staging area for Japan’s army and navy. The second was Kokura, home to one of Japan’s biggest munitions factories. The third was Niigata, a large Sea of Japan port city with a tanker terminal, oil refinery, and iron works. The fourth was the old imperial capital Kyoto, then also a huge industrial city with factories turning out parts for artillery, machinery, and aircraft.
But at the last moment the Secretary of War Henry Stimson, who arguably had knowingly precipitated Japan’s Pearl Harbor attack by instigating an international embargo on its life-or-death oil supplies, removed Kyoto from the list for annihilation and replaced it with Nagasaki.
On the day Nagasaki was bombed, reporter W.H. Lawrence told New York Times readers that it was “more important industrially” than Hiroshima, a “transshipment” port, and “a major shipbuilding and repair center for both naval and merchantmen.”
Nagasaki, indeed, was a port with one of the world’s finest deep harbors, but the beautiful mid-sized city on the far southern island of Kyushu had lost much of its status as a seaport. Hemmed in by mountains and 600 miles southwest of Tokyo, what reached or left there required transshipment, usually by sea.
Near Nagasaki was a huge Mitsubishi shipbuilding facility, but it survived the atomic bombing. Something else in this city, however, was virtually at Ground Zero and was destroyed. Was it the real target that Leftists in the Roosevelt-Truman New Deal government wanted most to obliterate?
Nagasaki was a sleepy fishing village on the day in 1542 when Portuguese sailors first dropped anchor there. Guided by their maps to Japan, on August 15, 1549, Roman Catholic missionary St. Francis Xavier landed at nearby Kagoshima, learned within a year how to speak Japanese, and began spreading the Christian faith.
By 1579, six of the regional military lords called daimyo had become Christian converts and brought 100,000 of their subjects under the sign of the cross with them.
Japan by tradition had been religiously tolerant. The Nagasaki prefecture was home to the nation’s ports nearest China and welcomed Buddhists, Taoists, and other traders and settlers from neighboring lands. But these new Christians were intolerant, and by 1587 the last Buddhist and ancestor-worshipping indigenous Shinto shrines had vanished from the district.
To Japan’s central ruler, the foreign traders and their fast-growing religion began to seem threatening, like a foreign Fifth Column in his midst. In place of the nation’s polytheistic faith, Christianity insisted on only one God. In a society based on submission to feudal and group authority, the new belief taught the value of the individual. In a society of central power, the faith from Europe created new rival centers of power and allegiance.
In 1587 the Shogun Toyotomi Hideyoshi issued a decree proscribing Christianity and ordering the Jesuits to depart Japan within 20 days, an edict that as tempers cooled went unenforced.
But nine years later new sparks flared, and in 1597 Hideyoshi had 26 missionaries – six Franciscans, three Jesuits, and 17 Japanese Christians – crucified at Nagasaki. A year later 137 Jesuit churches in the region were razed, along with a college and seminary.
Hideyoshi died in 1598, and with his passing eased the first wave of persecutions. But by 1612 the new Tokugawa Shogunate issued restrictions on Christianity, and a nationwide ban was issued two years later.
In 1622 at least 51 Christians were executed in Nagasaki, and two years later 50 were burned alive for their faith in Edo (now Tokyo). More and more foreigners were excluded from Japan. 30 more Christian missionaries were executed in 1633, and two years later even Japanese residents who had lived overseas were prohibited from returning to Japan, lest they bring back an infection of foreign ideas.
Japan’s rulers had reason to fear. By 1614, up to 300,000 Japanese were Christians, about 10 percent of the nation’s entire population. Unless this contagious foreign religion with its alien values could be stopped, it would soon take over and transform Japan. To fight it, daimyo were prohibited from becoming Christians, and thousands of Christians were executed.
Around Nagasaki hundreds of pieces of silver were offered to anyone who turned in priests, monks, or even ordinary believers. Those suspected were required to step on a crucifix or later on an image of Jesus molded from the metal of desecrated Christian altars. The alien religion was driven deep underground by persecution.
The Shogun directed those in Nagasaki to reject Jesus Christ and embrace a new city guardian god whose home was the local Suwa Shrine. Each year in early October the people of Nagasaki still hold the Kunchi Festival in this pagan god’s honor. It is celebrated nowadays with a dragon dance, Kokkodesho, likely brought by Chinese merchants, and Hurrah dances brought to the trading city centuries ago by Dutch sailors.
Foreign traders were confined to an island near Nagasaki. Then, around 1640, the Japanese Shogun simply slammed and locked the door, cutting his entire nation off from world trade and communication for the next two centuries.
The door was pried open again in the mid-19th Century. Trade resumed with many Western nations, including the United States. Japan’s exotic qualities fascinated Western artists of all kinds. Giacomo Puccini set his tragic opera about a suicidal young Japanese woman left pregnant and abandoned by an American seaman, Madame Butterfly, in Nagasaki.
By 1859, Christian missionaries were permitted to return. In 1873, Christians were again allowed to evangelize in the island kingdom. In 1895, construction began on a Roman Catholic cathedral in Urakami, a suburb of Nagasaki, that would be the largest ecclesiastical building of its type in the Far East.
And, to the missionaries’ surprise, over 30,000 Japanese Kakure Kirishitan, “hidden Christians,” emerged who had risked their lives by secretly holding true to their faith during two centuries of persecution. Now, with tear-filled eyes and rejoicing, they came to worship openly in and around the place Pope Pius IX had blessed in 1867 by canonizing its 26 now-sainted martyrs to the faith, Japan’s most Christian city, Nagasaki.
The plutonium bomb called “Fat Man” dropped from the B-29’s bomb bay at 11:02 A.M. Below in the August heat nuns and old people knelt praying, and summer sunlight danced on Nagasaki Bay.
Christians able to travel had made pilgrimage here. Some came to escape the nationalist war fever and Shinto Cult of the Emperor, descendant of the Sun God, that directed hate against all alien faiths, including Buddhists and especially those loyal to the enemy’s faith, Christians. Surely, these pilgrims thought, the last place a Christian United States would drop its terrible new weapon would be Japan’s home of the Prince of Peace.
The man-made sun, brighter than a million Rising Sun Japanese flags, ignited about 1,600 feet above Ground Zero. Its wind shockwave moving at 1,400 miles per hour pulverized the crowded homes below like a giant fist. Its energy flash burned flesh from bone, then vaporized both before a scream could reach melting human lips.
Scarcely a fifth of a mile from Ground Zero, the Urakami Cathedral, its lovingly-crafted stained glass, and the worshippers inside were smashed into dust and goo and flash-broiled. Heavy carved statues of Jesus and Mary were scorched black in an instant.
The bomb, bigger than Hiroshima’s, with the explosive force of 21,000 tons of TNT, destroyed essentially everything and everyone within 1.2 miles of Ground Zero. Thousands of close-clustered wooden homes and their residents vanished in the glow of a rising mushroom cloud.
In that moment, an estimated 73,884 people died – at least one in 10 of them Christians. Another 75,000 were blinded, had skin burned off, or were injured by the blast or engulfing firestorms or collapsing buildings for miles around. Thousands more would die from radiation or injury over days or months.
As one writer about the Cathedral put it, through this atom bomb blast the Truman Administration was “ironically killing more Christians than had ever been killed in Japan during centuries of persecution.”
So why did Marxocratic policy makers inside Roosevelt’s and Truman’s New Deal alter military targeting decisions, commanding instead that Nagasaki – relatively insignificant as a military target – be moved into the bombardier’s cross hairs and that its Christian people be cremated alive into clicking-hot radioactive ashes by atomic bomb annihilation?
And why today do Marxocrats use every tactic and technicality to politically exterminate each Christian word and symbol in America’s public square? Is their aim to remove all religions, morals, and values that people might prefer to their dogmatic religion, Marxism?
Urakami Cathedral near Nagasaki was rebuilt by 1959, but among the city’s surviving families, scarcely three percent are now Christians. Modern Japanese, shaped by America’s secular occupation, have eclectically incorporated symbols from various religions. Many, it is said, now grow up Shinto, marry like Christians, and die as Buddhists. Brides wear white wedding gowns and even wed in churches. Many families celebrate Valentine’s Day, and some even exchange gifts on Christmas. Several of the founders of Japan’s post-war democracy were raised as Christians.
But the faith that once showed signs of sweeping Japan and thereby changing Asian history is now mostly a matter of style, not religious passion or mass conversion. Scarcely one percent of Japanese now think of themselves as Christians.
French director Alain Resnais in 1959 created the film masterpiece Hiroshima, Mon Amour. It plunges viewers into the fantasies and nightmares of two lovers, a French woman and a Japanese man, a survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
The world needs a sequel to this film to help people understand the hidden wellsprings of history, love, faith, and the limitless evil of the political Left. Call it Nagasaki, Mon Amour.
The August 9th anniversary of Truman’s deliberate bombing of the Christian city of Japan is a moment for prayer and contemplation. It is also a night to look heavenward, as from then through August 12th each year our planet splashes through a river of stardust left in space by an ancient “earth crossing” comet. These nights bring the Perseid meteor showers as tiny fragments from that comet burn up in Earth’s atmosphere.
