    Its an interesting list - but like many others, a bit North American Centric.. but still interesting.

    It has George Walker Bush - I did not think he was a Freemason.. and Joseph Stalin ? which makes me ask how reliable the list is ?

    Happy Reading !

    I have heard there is no evidence that 'W' is a Mason nor his father. The last known Masonic President of the U.S. was Ford. Other than that, the list seems pretty legit. I could be wrong about the Bushes but we may never know for sure.

    No, the Bushes are not. No evidence Stalin was.

    Thanks Glen, they are three which stood out to me at first glance. Never before have I read of Stalin being claimed as a Freemason, and everyone serious says the Bushes were not Freemasons...

    I think Al Green, R. Dreyfuss a couple of others I didn't notice on there. I didn't go all the way through either and sort of rushed but they should be towards the top.

    Certainly some questionable people on that list. I think the Bush's are members of Skull & Bones at Yale university.

    Yes, the Bushes are reportedly Skull and Bones. For some reason, people think that Skull and Bones is a Masonic body.

    I doubt Stalin was a Freemason, especially when he was an atheist and his regime persecuted them.

    Atheists can become (irregular) Freemasons (viz Grand Orient de France) and Brother Ataturk outlawed Freemasonry in France.

    However, I also doubt Stalin was a Freemason, never having heard this.... and I've done a lot of research on Australian Famous Freemason and read pretty widely on non-Australian Freemasons and I've never seen Stalin named as one ...but have seen Ho Chi Minh mentioned as becoming a Freemason in Paris several times, but never from a thoroughly reliable source...

    Yes, the Bush Family are skull and bones / brothers under the skin. It's a fraternity, just like the Elihu Yale Society.
