Exposing the Evils of False Defamation:

Rejecting the Historical Agenda of Deception


The Knights Templar most harshly condemned the Evil of False Defamation, a major violation of Canon Law, which later caused their Persecution by a corrupt King. Defamation is the key method of sabotage against the Good, from a documented historical Evil Agenda against humanity.



A Typical Battle for Good Against Evil


F (100) Knights Templar Illuminated Letters www.knightstemplarorder.orgFor all the Good in the world, there seems to always be some balance with an undercurrent of Evil. Organizations who successfully build serious humanitarian projects, with capabilities for meaningful positive impact, learn quickly that there exists a counter-culture of people who work just as hard, only to make sure that something good will not be given to the world. For such people, the perceived “benefit” is simply to feed their ego with the corrupt satisfaction that their negative impact shows they have some form of “power” over others.

Many diverse charities and non-profit institutions share such experiences: The closer they get to having real positive impact of major benefit to people, the more groups seem to form only to sabotage those good works. Such attacks, for the sole purpose of blocking the good, are almost exclusively driven by the most immoral and despicable practice of Defamation.


It is having the moral backbone, professional discipline, and determination, anchored in an unshakeable Faith, which determines the success of humanitarian projects. It is having the skills, strength and endurance to withstand attacks, oppose wrongdoers, and finish missions, which allows the good works to bear fruit. This is precisely the true purpose and role of Knights and Dames serving in Chivalry.


To mostly give only “lip service” to the idea of “Charity”, only so long as one’s efforts are convenient and unchallenged by adversity, is contrary to the true life of Chivalry. Historically, genuine Knights and Dames took a stand to fight for what is right, and fight for their rights to bring their good works to the world. Indeed, the authentic Knights Templar experience has always involved rising to the challenge of overcoming slander and false Defamation from evil-doers.


The evidence of an historical Evil Agenda of false Defamation presented here, proves that those who engage in Defamation related to the Order, or independent non-profit institutions which it supports, have no excuse from the legal and spiritual consequences of their false Defamation.


Most Defamation to sabotage humanitarian projects relies on a wider strategy of creating sufficient doubt, solely by distraction and confusion, causing people to “give up” on a good cause, simply because they “don’t know who to believe”.


The Apostles of Jesus gave us this key to understanding: “God is not the author of confusion” (I Corinthians 14:33). This means that when there are efforts to cause “confusion”, that is not of God, but rather as Jesus warned, is from “the Devil… a liar, and father of lies.” (John 8:44)


This topic is intended to teach Templars and the People to see through the insidious deceptions of Defamation, to focus on the blessings of God’s Truth.


The Prince Grand Master, Professor Matthew is notably quoted as saying: “There are two sides to any story, but a good Judge has a third side, which is the cutting edge binding the two.” (2013) The present work provides precisely that “cutting edge” to penetrate deception, to empower all who read it to have the Wisdom of King Solomon, to be able to tell the lies of Defamation from the Truth.


Good and Honest People are Inevitably Defamed


T (100) Knights Templar Illuminated Letters www.knightstemplarorder.orgThe timeless plague of defamation most commonly comes in the form of personal attacks, targeted especially against those individuals who give the most, volunteer the most, and work the hardest to implement humanitarian missions. Attacking a valuable person is the coward’s strategy for sabotaging the project, derailing the mission, or undermining the whole institution.

‘Saint Michael and the Dragon’ Raphael Sanzio da Urbino (ca. 1505 AD)

Jesus taught the best way to cut through false Defamation against an individual or institution, to recognize evildoers from the righteous, by instead looking at the nature of their works:


Beware of [those] which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:15-20)


Mother Theresa (1910-1997) specifically addressed personal attacks of false Defamation, with her maxims called “The Paradoxical Commandments“:


If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Do good anyway. … Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway. … People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway. Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway. It was never between you and them anyway. It is between you and God.


Historical Templarism Forcefully Condemns Defamation


S (100) Knights Templar Illuminated Letters www.knightstemplarorder.orgSaint Bernard de Clairvaux (1090-1153), the Patron and Saint of the Templar Order, condemned even the tolerance of Defamation as one of the greatest sins: “Slander is a poison which kills charity, both in the slanderer and the one who listens.


The Temple Rule of 1129 AD, by Saint Bernard de Clairvaux and Hughes de Payens, strictly prohibits “rumour”, “slander”, to “malign” or “disparage others” as being the “wickedness of the Devil” (Rule 48). It forbids “idle words” as being “not without sin”, as they often lead to rumour and Defamation (Rule 32). It prohibits to “incite another… to wrath or anger”, which is the primary effect of Defamation as a wrongfully aggressive provocation (Rule 38). It commands to “cease to speak Evil to escape the penalty of sinfulness”, which by definition includes Defamation (Rule 49).

It is thus a proven historical fact that authentic Templarism always condemned Defamation in the strongest terms. The original Templar Order taught that speaking Evil by disparaging others is the direct manifestation of the Devil itself, and that people who engaged in such offense are themselves the “enemies of Christ” whom the Templars were sworn to fight against (Rule 14). [1]


Indeed, history proves that the entire Templar Trials only occurred because the French King Philip IV ordered his authorities to manufacture false charges, to meet the narrow legal vulnerability of “heresy”, as the only way to penetrate the near-absolute immunity of the Templar Order as a sovereign Principality [2].


When the Vatican continued to ignore the fabrications, the French resorted to extracting “Confessions” under torture, strictly following a list of targeted charges developed by the King. The accusations were based upon recruited false “witnesses”, mostly disgruntled former Templars whom the Order had expelled for their own wrongdoing [3], who were actually given immunity from any punishment even if their accusations were proven false [4].


The Chinon Parchment Papal Bull of 1308 AD, ending the infamous French Templar Trials by exonerating and vindicating the Order and reinstating it to full communion with the Church, concluded that the trials were based on nothing but false inflammatory Defamation, by “word of mouth and also clamorous reports from the illustrious King of France… because of which [the Order] suffered public infamy”. [5]


In the Papal Bull Vox In Excelso of 1312 AD, which ordered the limited “suppression” of the Templar Order, the Vatican bitterly protested that it was solely the result of groundless but persistent false defamation, all under duress of the threat of such Defamation being turned against the Vatican itself:


We were unwilling to lend our ears to insinuation and accusation against the Templars…” (Part 3) “Then came the intervention of… [the] King of France.” (Part 4). “Indeed… the good name of the Order has been largely taken away by the heresies attributed to it.” (Part 10) “The above have given rise to grave scandal against the Order, scandal impossible to allay as long as the Order continues to exist” within the Vatican (Part 12). [6]


The related Papal Bull Considerantes of 1312 AD also protested that “the widespread disgrace, the strong suspicion, and the clamorous charges… of the Kingdom of France also gave grave scandal which could hardly be allayed without suppression of the Order.” (Part 1) [7]


False “Templars” Exposed by their Defamation – Therefore, those who wage Defamation against others, claiming to be “Real Templars”, or pretending to uphold “Templar” traditions or interests, expose and betray themselves to the world as violating everything which the historical Knights Templar actually stood for, and everything for which they fought and sacrificed.


Even more, this reveals that they have in fact adopted and seek to perpetuate the Evil ways of the most sinful “enemies of God” in all of Templar history. Indeed, such vile behavior in fact declares that one has chosen to be an aggressive enemy of all cultural Templars worldwide.


Authentic Christianity Strictly Prohibits Defamation


C (100) Knights Templar Illuminated Letters www.knightstemplarorder.orgChristianity is deeply rooted in the Ten Commandments of the Bible, as the Word of God. Among these fundamental principles of the most basic requirements, are: “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour” (Exodus 20:16; Deuteronomy 5:20), and “Thou shalt not covet they neighbor… nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s” (Exodus 20:17; Deuteronomy 5:21). The Old Testament further commands that “Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.” (Exodus 23:1)


'Saint Michael the Archangel and the Fallen Angels', Luca Giordano (1666) Vienna

The Apostles specifically applied those doctrines to false Defamation and Character Assassination: “If any man [engage in] words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, Evil surmising, perverse disputing of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth… from such withdraw thyself.” (I Timothy 6:3-5)


The theologian Tryon Edwards (1809-1894) unequivocally condemned the Character Assassination of Defamation attacks: “To murder character is as truly a crime as to murder the body: the tongue of the slanderer is brother to the dagger of the assassin.


The Roman Catholic Code of Canon Law strictly prohibits Defamation, and the related abuses which rely upon that method, including: Aggressive interference with disregard for rights and justice (Canon 287, §1); Defamation to “unlawfully harm good reputation” by inflammatory accusations (Canon 220); Falsely or maliciously “denouncing” to “injure the good name of another” (Canon 1390, §2); Abusing one’s claimed ecclesiastical office to give false credibility or increase the damages of defamation (Canon 1389).


In fact, wholly rejecting and intentionally violating the most basic scriptural requirements of Christian morals by false Defamation makes one “apostate” (Canon 1364). To “promote or moderate” an “association which plots against” an ecclesiastical institution (i.e. the Templar Order which represents a canonical Church), which is typically done by false Defamation (Canon 1374), or to aid and abet Defamation for those purposes (Canon 1329), is an extreme canonical offense.


These particular violations trigger mandatory automatic Excommunication (Latae Sententiae) by force of Canon Law (Canon 1334, §2), as the offenders have de facto excommunicated themselves, and no process nor hearing is even required (Canon 1335). In such cases, any Bishops from any Church affected by the Defamation can simply “declare” the automatic Excommunication (Canon 1314), as an “extrajudicial decree” (Canon 1342, §1). [8]


These indisputable facts of Christian theology and Canon Law further prove that those who engage in the aggression of Defamation are in fact themselves the “enemies of Christ” of the Temple Rule of 1129 AD, whom the Knights Templar were commanded to “remove from the land” (Rule 14). [9]


False “Christians” Exposed by their Defamation – Therefore, those who wage Defamation against others, claiming to represent Christian principles or pretending to uphold the interests of any Church, expose themselves to the world as violating even the most basic tenets of Christianity. They thereby betray themselves as false Christians or false Clergy, and also risk automatic Excommunication among all Churches worldwide.


Historical Agenda of False Defamation Methods


F (100) Knights Templar Illuminated Letters www.knightstemplarorder.orgFor as long as there have been Knights and Dames living by the Code of Chivalry, fighting for Truth and Justice, there has also been a counter-culture of self-styled “Secret Societies” seeking to undermine all humanitarian missions. Those “enemies of humanity” consistently follow the same historical methods of sabotage, always involving psychological manipulation by false Defamation, as a telltale sign of their Evil Agenda.


While such people are usually not “members” of any actual “society”, they are typically adherents to the same philosophy which they discover in the historical record, allowing them to learn the same methods of Evil from other villains of the past.


The prominent French historian Emile Leon Gautier (1832-1897 AD), an Archivist of the Imperial Archives and Chief of the historical section of the National Archives in Paris, traced the source of the historical Evil Agenda to a medieval political clan of Satanists:


Gautier documented a self-styled “race of traitors” from Bavaria and in France, who worked to oppose the 11th century Code of Chivalry, and created “a Satanic Counter Code. … Thou shalt never be loyal to anyone; Thou shalt never keep thy word; … Thou shalt betray and sell honest men; Thou shalt uphold evil and abase the good; … Dishonor the Church; Thou shalt lie without shame; and violate thine oaths.” [10]


This same Satanic Agenda of deception appeared in a “15th century Rothschild journal”, verified by British Museum scholars, as a letter from a Bavarian secret society to Feudal lords in France in 1489 AD, declaring a protocol of destruction for control over humanity, all by deception [11].


A full text of this Satanic agenda, the most complete and detailed version called the “Protocols of the Illuminati”, came from a transcript of a speech by the head of an international banking family to a secret society of oligarchs in 1773 AD [12].


This text was first discovered in 1785 AD, intercepted when a courier from the headquarters of the Bavarian Illuminati was struck by lightning [13] [14] [15] [16], causing it to be seized by the police, who turned it over to the Bavarian government through a magistrate.  This officially proved that it was already in active use as an Agenda by the Bavarian Illuminati before that time. [17]


The Vatican documented that the Bavarian government outlawing the Illuminati in 1785 AD had caused its expansion in France [18].  This also caused its resurgence only 8 years later in Bavaria in 1793 AD.  The historical record thus proves that the Agenda of the original Satanic Counter-Code was directly continued by the Bavarian Illuminati, in a more detailed and elaborate form as the “Protocols of the Illuminati”.


Another authenticated copy of the same “Protocols” Agenda was intercepted in 1818 AD from a courier of the “Alta Vendita” Lodge of the Italian “Carbonari” branch of the Bavarian Illuminati [19].  Another two authenticated copies of the same “Protocols” were translated from French by Professor Sergius Nilus, from one edition printed in Paris in 1897 AD [20], and another edition as “documents stolen from… a secret meeting of the initiated in France” in 1901 [21] [22].


The Nilus Edition was authenticated and preserved by the British Museum since 1906, and translated from Russian by the British investigative journalist Victor E. Marsden of the London Morning Post newspaper, who was appointed special correspondent of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, and who published the Protocols in English in 1921. [23]


Agenda of Discrediting by False Defamation – The authenticated “Protocols of the Illuminati” evidence that the proven historical agenda extensively relies upon the deception of discrediting good people and positive institutions, primarily by false Defamation:


Protocol 1.7 – “Internal discord brings [the People] under the power of external foes”.


Protocol 1.10 – “The masses, being guided solely by petty passions… and sentimental theorems, fall a prey to [artificial] dissension, which hinders any kind of agreement even on the basis of a perfectly reasonable argument”.


Protocol 1.11 – “The political has nothing in common with the moral. The ruler… must have recourse both to cunning and to make-believe [fiction].


Protocol 1.18 – “It is necessary to [use] the instability of the mob, its lack of capacity to understand and respect the conditions of its own life, or its own welfare. [The] mob is [a] blind, senseless and un-reasoning force ever at the mercy of a suggestion from any side.


Protocol 1.23 – “Violence must be the principle, and cunning and make-believe the rule… This Evil is the one and only means to attain the end… Therefore, we must not stop at bribery, deceit and treachery when they should serve towards the attainment of our end.


Protocol 3.10 – “The People, blindly believing things in print… [follows] promptings intended to mislead [by] its own ignorance”.


Protocol 3.19 – “And thus the People condemn the upright and acquit the guilty, persuaded ever more and more… Thanks to this state of things, the People are destroying every kind of stability”.


Protocol 5.4 – “[Use] the art of directing masses and individuals by means of cleverly manipulated theory and verbiage… [Those who] might have compared with us… we have contrived to discredit them in the eyes of the unthinking mob”.


Protocol 5.10 – “In order to put public opinion in our hands we must bring it into a state of bewilderment by… so many contradictory opinions… to make the People lose their heads in the labyrinth and come to… have no opinion of any kind”.


Protocol 5.11 – “Sow discord in all parties, to dislocate all collective forces which are still unwilling to submit to us, and to discourage any kind of personal initiative which might in any degree hinder our affair… if it has genius behind it, such initiative can do more than can be done by millions of people among whom we have sown discord.


Protocol 13.4 – “There is not among the People one mind able to perceive… [the] departure from truth in all cases… [which serves] to obscure truth so that none may know it except us”.


Protocol 17.2 – “We have long past taken care to discredit the priesthood of the People, and thereby to ruin their mission on earth which… might still be a great hindrance to us.


Protocol 19.3 – “In order to destroy the prestige of heroism, [as] political crime we shall [make accusations] in the category of thieving… and every kind of abominable and filthy crime.


This proves an historical “Evil Agenda” to sabotage humanitarian institutions, primarily through false Defamation, especially targeting folk heroes or individuals who can contribute the most to uplift and advance humanity.


History thus proves that it is necessary for humanity to rise up, stand up for right over wrong, and demonstrate to all adherents of that perverse Agenda that the People refuse to be deceived, and refuse to allow evil-doers to “divide and conquer”.


The best way to do this is to take away the only real weapon that they have, which is false Defamation as sabotage. The most effective way to do that is simply to use the traditional principles to detect deceptive Defamation, and to completely boycott, resist and reject all those who attempt to use such methods.
