The comments of the person where I discovered this link:
we cant honor the pastors or men of God but we can recognize satanist and the occult
Recognizing the thousands of Freemasons
in every State in the Nation and honoring them for
their many contributions to the Nation throughout its history.
U.S. Representative and Brother Paul Gillmor submitted House Resolution 33 on January 5, 2007 to the 110th U.S. Congress. It was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. This resolution is the second such resolution submitted to Congress. It was submitted by Congressmen Gillmor in the last session of Congress, and also made its way to the House Committee on Government Reform. For the draft to make it to the house floor, it requires 50 co-sponsors. Last time, it only received 21 sponsors.
Congressman Paul Gillmor is currently serving in his tenth term representing the Fifth Congressional District of Ohio. His district of 16 counties is the second largest district in Ohio and is actually larger than the States of Rhode Island, Delaware, Connecticut or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. He serves on one of the most powerful committees in Congress, the Financial Services Committee where he is the top Republican on the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit. Bro. Gillmor was also unanimously elected in 2006 by representatives of the 26 NATO countries to serves as Vice President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
Prior to his election to Congress, Gillmor served in the Ohio Senate for twenty-two years. As a State Senator, he was unanimously elected Republican leader five times, and served as President of the Senate for three General Assemblies. Paul is a graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University and the University of Michigan Law School. He attained the rank of Captain while on active duty as an Air Force Judge Advocate during the Vietnam Conflict. At home in Tiffin, Ohio, Paul is married to former Ohio State Senator Karen Gillmor and has two daughters, Linda and Julie, and three sons, Paul Michael, and twins Connor and Adam.
The resolution reads:
Recognizing the thousands of Freemasons in every State in the Nation and honoring them for their many contributions to the Nation throughout its history.
Whereas Freemasons, whose long lineage extends back to before the Nation’s founding, have set an example of high moral standards and charity for all people;
Whereas the Founding Fathers of this great Nation and signers of the Constitution, most of whom were Freemasons, provided a well-rounded basis for developing themselves and others into valuable citizens of the United States;
Whereas members of the Masonic Fraternity, both individually and as an organization, continue to make invaluable charitable contributions of service to the United States;
Whereas the Masonic Fraternity continues to provide for the charitable relief and education of the citizens of the United States;
Whereas the Masonic Fraternity is deserving of formal recognition of their long history of care-giving for the citizenry and their example of high moral standards; and
Whereas Freemasons have always revered and celebrated St. John’s Day, June 24th, as dedicated to their patron saints: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives recognizes the thousands of Freemasons in every State in the Nation and honors them for their many contributions to the Nation throughout its history.
