Michael Brea and the “Masonic” Sword

Its been reported that Michael Brea, a some time actor on the ABC program Ugly Betty, used a Masonic Sword, like this one from Amazon, to fatally stab his 55 year old mother, Yannick Brea,  while shouting bible verses and yelling repent and “…architect of the universe…”

A type of Masonic Sword

From the NY Post

An actor who had a part in “Ugly Betty” repeatedly stabbed and killed his mother with a Freemason ceremonial sword after a bizarre religious diatribe this morning, cops said.

…”I heard a shriek and a woman yelling ‘help me’,” Vernal Bent said. “We called 911 and we kept hearing screams and then we didn’t hear them any more. Michael was chanting Biblical phrases and kept calling for Moses, Jerusalem and the ‘architect of the universe’.”

Without a doubt Brea was acting on his own and in a deranged fashion.  Masonry in no way suggests or condones this practice or activity, and despite his use of weapon and any words uttered, it is in no way a Masonic act.

    I read it was a samurai sword instead and this is the first I’ve seen the ranting be worded in such a way that it could have been described as Masonic. I didn’t really care before, but I now find myself curious about what really happened and whether Masonic symbols and phrases were even there. I find it interesting that Masons get dragged into a multitude of situations seemingly just to slander them.

  2. It looked to me that the Masonic connection came from the NY Post article, which has since been picked up in a large variety of places.

  3. ‘Without a doubt Brea was acting on his own and in a deranged fashion. Masonry in no way suggests or condones this practice or activity, and despite his use of weapon and any words uttered, it is in no way a Masonic act.’

    really? was it really necessary to state this? are we that insecure about the Craft and how it’s perceived???

  4. The highest traffic comes from a conspiracy site that thinks acts like this are “common place”, so yeah, it needed to be said.
