"THE CHRISTMAS LIE: It's Bigger Than You Think"
"At the same time, Hislop himself was a freemason who was reverand of the Free Church of Scotland. Freemasonry worships baal."
"......THE FACTSAlexander Hislop was a Free Church of Scotland minister who was famous for his outspoken criticism of the Roman Catholic Churches. His father was a mason [i.e., a "Brick-layer"] and elder of the Relief Church. His brother was a missionary to India. Alexander was born at Duns, Berwicksire, Scotland in February, 1809 and died in Arbroath, March 13, 1865. He was a parish schoolmaster originally, and married Jane Pearson in 1831. They had six children: five girls then a boy. He also edited the Scottish Guardian newspaper. In 1843 he joined the Free Church of Scotland and was ordained in 1844. He became a senior minister in 1864 and having been ill for two years died of a paralyzing stroke. He wrote several books, and his research on Catholicism has withstood the constant and continual assault of those who do not want to accept the message. His work remains an important and valuable insight into the adoption of heathenism into “Christian Churches” and so challenges every true believer to “come out from among them and be separate, saith the Lord!” Alexander Hislop was loved by those who know him and captivated their interest with his wit and conversational abilities. He was generous and unselfish by nature. He took interest in improving the housing of the worker, as well as their spiritual and moral nature. - Alexander Hislop, Rev.Clinton Macomber, Pleasant Places Press
Appearantly, Alexander Hislop's enemies have been confused by the reference to "mason" in bio. This was a reference to (1) his father and (2) a profession of being a "brick-layer". Obviously his father being a "Brick-layer" in England might suggest he was also involved with the "Freemasons" by virtue of his trade. But concerning this two points must be realized; (1) Many Evangelicals who rejected the Church of England [dominated by Freemasonry] did so with family members [sometimes even parents] who were Masons (and thus familiar with the problem it posed for genuine "Christianity") (2) There is no public indication his father actually was. (at least as far as we have been able to find) Even so however, this would not indict Hislop. His arguments were against syncretism, not in favor of it.Secondly, it must also be realized that invoking "Scotland" as a "hot bed" of "Freemasonry" is a bit disingenuous historically. Scotland had become a "battle-ground" over "Freemasonry". And "Freemasonry" had "targeted" the Evangelicals in this community for precisely this reason. The "Scottish rite" had a long presence there, but so this the "Scottish Free Church" which produced some of the most intellectually formidable Evangelicals in history...."

".....His father was a mason [i.e., a "Brick-layer"]...." - below image: a brother of Alexander Hislop's father, a mason of Paoua, Central African Republic:
".....A bricklayer or mason is a craftsman who lays bricks to construct brickwork. The term also refers to personnel who use blocks to construct blockwork walls and other forms of masonry. In British and Australian English, a bricklayer is colloquially known as a "brickie".......".
