Cirque de So’long

August 30, 2010

September 27, 2009 marked a seminal moment in Masonic history with discovery of a criminal cowan in the ranks. 

Happy upcoming anniversary and congratulations Hillsborough Lodge No. 25,  the Grand Lodge of Florida, and all brothers in good standing across the globe; thrice convicted felon James Anderson “Jimmy” Foster’s buffoonery can no longer hurt you.

As noted in “Washing away the W:. Bag of Douchery” on June 9, 2010:

“Per past Grand Master Dale I. Goehrig’s final ruling on thrice convicted felon James Anderson “Jimmy” Foster’s fraudulent foray into Freemasonry:

A five year definite suspension with re-entry devoid of re-petitioning and re-balloting contingent upon A) the entire sentence served and B) restoration of full civil rights.

Though not a richly deserved expulsion, the suspension terms are complementary whereas pending divine intervention and legislation, the felon’s membership and affiliations are ghost/toast/history.

Foster’s convictions for aggravated battery and aggravated assault, counts 12 and 18 on the violent crimes list and both of which he was convicted on February 3, 1983,  preclude restoration of civil rights.”

Infliction of pain seemingly, thematically appears in Foster’s life as one is not sentenced to 25 years in prison and a 15 year probationary period for nothing (as evidenced within his extensive criminal history provided by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement).


Likewise, one is not remanded to life without restoration of civil rights for nothing

Foster’s convictions for aggravated battery and aggravated assault, counts 12 and 18 on the violent crimes list and both of which Foster was convicted on February 3, 1983,  preclude restoration of civil rights.



  •  No violent offenses (see Level I list; please click on the above link to view Levels I and II, Rule 9- Rules of Executive Clemency)
  • Not declared a habitual violent felony offender, a 3-time violent felony offender, violent career criminal, prison releasee reoffender, sexual predator

Enter the following information provided by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement into the link for proof that Foster lacks restoration of civil rights: 


Name:  James Anderson Foster

Date of Birth:  12/17/1960

Florida Department of Corrections Identification Number:  0144204

Still, some cowan cohorts cry spilled milk and sour grapes.

At least 28 Master Masons in good standing were notified of Foster’s criminal history last September; only 3 are known to have presented the information to the Worshipful Master as per their Masonic obligation.

The remaining 25?  

One who forthrightly admitted to filing false Masonic charges at Foster’s behest deemed the report a ”vendetta” in which he would not partake.  

Another has since advised others to avoid this site. 

A handful of precariously perched fellows straddle the high wire, choosing a side in which to lean only when the audience has been determined. 

Clowns out of a Volkswagen, yes; but clowns on to something, nonetheless. 

Their opination of Foster’s suspension as foul is a sentiment we humbly echo.

Felon-free Masonry DOES NOT endorse or support the suspension of thrice convicted violent felon cum churchin’ rodeo’r James Anderson “Jimmy” Foster.

Rather, it cites the suspension as an egregious failure to uphold the edicts of Masonic justice as written in the Grand Lodge of Florida’s Digest of Masonic Law.  

As summarized in the May 25, 2010 case for Foster’s expulsion: 


Expulsion.  Or as many say, “the obvious choice.” 

No more clowning around.
