This is a reply to your articles which appeared in Masonic Inspiration (April and July 1955), the one headed "Martin Luther- Our Illustrious Brother Mason" and the other "An Open Letter to Lutherans Spreading Anti-Masonic Propaganda." In the latter you attempt to provide evidence that though Luther may not have been a Mason himself, the friends who kidnapped and brought him safely to the Wartburg were members of the guild of Steinmetzen and therefore, so you conclude, Masons. In the same article you also attempt to refute objections raised by some Lutherans against religious and unchristian aspects and teachings of Freemasonry.
