(By 33rd Degree Freemason Author, Todd E. Creason) – Even before the Presidential Election of 2004 when he ran against George W. Bush, it has been rumored that John Kerry, the Senator from Massachusetts, was a Freemason. Now that he’s the 68th Secretary of State, that rumor has been revived.
Actually, John Kerry is the member of a secret society–one even more secretive than the Illuminati. And oddly enough, his old adversary from the 2004 election, George W. Bush, and his father George Herbert Walker Bush are both members of that same organization. He is a Bonesman. He is a member of Skull and Bones, an ultra-secret society at Yale University whose membership roster reads like a who’s who of America’s elite and privileged.
The Skull and Bones only admit fifteen new members a year, handpicked from the student body at Yale University. And few hints at what goes on behind the iron padlocked door of the ancient windowless building called “The Tomb” have ever been revealed. But for generations, the Skull and Bones, the most prestigious of the Senior college societies at Yale has been seen as the quiet hand that guides the great power brokers in banking, politics, and has an impressive number of members serving the bar, and on the bench.
However, the Skull and Bones is not a Masonic organization–there is no connection between the two organizations. The Skull and Bones is a college society, and Freemasonry is the world’s oldest fraternal organization.
And while John Kerry is without question a Bonesman, he is not a Freemason.
