Dan Brown a patsy or just a willing pawn?
New book should have been called “The Gospel According to Freemasonry”
Thomas Horn - September 17, 2009
SPRINGFIELD, MO – There’s a conspiracy, all right, and Dan Brown is in on it. “The Lost Symbol,” his follow-up to the 2003 best-seller, “The Da Vinci Code,” is out this week – and if you’ve read it, you know the Freemason’s have nothing to worry about. “Symbol” is about as threatening to The Brotherhood as a box of chocolates, two-dozen roses and a love card.
In fact, if you’re anything like me, you’ll come away from this overblown drivel with the curious feeling that we’ve all been had—that the “jitters” Freemasons were claiming to be experiencing in the lead-up to “Symbol” was really an elaborate sales gimmick between Brown and his occult buddies at 16th Street in Washington DC. The problem is, these folks are not just selling books. They’ve amassed under the guise of a “thriller” a profound apologetic for the occult aspirations of the Order of the Quest.
