    No, the Masons are not in any way shape or form similar to Judaism - one is an ancient religion, and the Mason's is a business man's club.

    Mystical Dog - the Templars were a monastic order of fighting men, who vowed poverty, chastity and obedience - they were nothing like the Masons.

    And there is no record of Friday 13th being considered unlucky until the 19th century which suggests there is no Templar connection.

    A totalitarian society is potentially threatened by any organisation over which it doesn't have complete control and allows people to organise against it separately.  This is one reason why the Chinese government opposes Christianity and Islam (and Falun Gong, which it should oppose).  Judaism and the Masons both answer that description, so you can expect the Nazis to persecute them, just as it persecuted communists and Jehovah's Witnesses.

    freemasons are just the templar knight rebranded, they formed a new group after they were excommunicated by monarchs and the church

    Source(s): friday the 13th is considered unlucky for a reason, look into the history of that
