Norway Monster Anders Behring Breivik

It’s been reported that Norwegian gunman and bomber Anders Behring Breivik was, amongst several affiliations, a freemason, this according to the British Mail-online.

In addition to the claim, it is also said he was a nazi, and right-wing anti muslim.

You can read the reporting in the Mail Online article: Norwegian massacre gunman was a right-wing extremist who hated Muslims

The link comes from Breivik’s Facebook profile, in which it is reported that his interests included body-building and freemasonry.

Perhaps unnecessary to say, his actions in no way reflect the teachings of Masonry, and to the contrary contradicts its teachings and even its very essence. The taking of human life is one of the most heinous of acts humanly possible making Breivik’s actions those of a monster.

Our hearts go out to those affected by this tragedy.

A devoted student of the Western Mystery Traditions, Greg is a firm believer in the Masonic connections to the Hermetic traditions of antiquity, its evolution through the ages and into its present configuration as the antecedent to all contemporary esoteric and occult traditions. He is a self-called searcher for that which was lost, a Hermetic Hermit and a believer in “that which is above is so too below.” Read more about Greg Stewart.


  1. The Grand Lodge of Norway wasted little time in cancelling Mr. Breivik’s membership in the Masonic fraternaty.

  2. In my humble opinion Grand Lodge of Norway is partially has to be the blamed. Off course it is almost impossible to know the mental health each of its members. Despite to this how a grand lodge defends masonry if it does not accept members from other faiths besides Christianity. Masonry is universal and teaches respect, tolerance, and brotherly love under GOD.

    P.S: Unfortunately I am not a mason, but both my father and grandfather were.
