A Founding Father that WASN'T a Freemason.
John Quincy Adams, sixth President of the United States, was a determined opponent of the secret society and fraternity of Freemasonry, the Masonic Lodge. The question of Freemasonry and the controversy over its character has long been debated. But for John Quincy Adams, writer, poet, faithful husband, patriot, former Ambassador and Secretary of State, and President, there was no question. The teachings and practices of the Lodge, Adams asserted, are detrimental, noxious, and unfortunate. John Quincy Adams was persuaded that the Masonic Lodges were a bane to society, evil, and Luciferian.
