Novus Ordo Bishop Inaugurates Masonic Lodge
Masonry is incompatible with Catholicism because it follows a deity called "Supreme Architect of the Universe" which is cut off from the earth. Therefore, Freemasons deny Revelation, the Incarnation and Providence.
GrandeOriente.it published the inauguration’s pictures. Soddu justified himself on the diocesan website by attacking his critics and claiming that the evidence was "misunderstood" and "misinterpreted."
He thinks that his words were not taken into account, that he didn't identify with a different worldview than Christianity but wanted "to witness the Gospel" in times of Synodality.
More honest comments came from Grand Master Stefano Bisi. Referring to the relationship between Church and the Masonic sect, he told LaNuovaBq.it (October 4) that the “crusades are over” [whatever that means] and quoted Francis' hypocritical encyclical Fratelli tutti, and Francis' reference to a “Supreme Being” in order to avoid confessing the Holy Trinity.
Soddu is not the brightest light. He holds a degree in "pastoral theology."
