Bishop Demands Return of $86,700 Donation from Masonic Lodge


Bishop Charlesworth Browne, Head of the Christian Ministries Center in Antigua and Barbuda, has demanded the Ministry of Health return an $86,700 donation from the Masonic Lodge.

The donation was intended for purchasing an ultrasound machine for the Sir Lester Bird Medical Center. Browne expressed concerns about the “sinister and evil” nature of the donation, noting that the amount, $86,700, is significant as an “Angel number.”

Browne advised the Ministry of Health to return the money, emphasizing the potential spiritual implications of accepting it.

He also highlighted his concerns about the donation being allocated to the hospital’s ultrasound department. Browne criticized the Lodge’s increasing openness, mentioning that even some clergymen are now involved, which he finds alarming.

  1. smh that place is a evil place hospitals should not take nothing from them hello you all dealing with ppl lives at the hospital!!!! that ultrasound is being place on ppl with innocent babies inside them kmft yes Mr prime minister return there money
    next thing ppl start get sick wen go on the machine I for one would refuse any technician to put that on me if you all accept the money
    an that man is no fucking Christian hes a devil worshippers

  2. Clergymen should not be involved in this evil. Every dark spirt will be exposed and disposed in Jesus’s Name

  3. Interesting….the spiritual implications of the donation. It would be intriguing to hear a further explanation of the “Angle Number”. $300.00 short of $87,000.00 might be a purposely act….Pastor Browne speak it out…the very reason for the separation of Church and State….
    The masonic lodges are no longer secret societies…as in days of old.

  4. I concur! When the lodge men marched through St. John’s, I said that is was symbolic that they are claiming the island for the devil. People scoffed at Mr! Haiti will forever be on turmoil because of the pact made with the devil in 1804. Nobody is willing to go to the site where they buried that sacrifice and unearth it! Haiti continues down a spiral path to destruction! If Antigua plays with the devil, the devil will NOT PLAY with us! A word to the wise is sufficient!

  5. It has always been said that it is better to keep silent and be thought a fool then to open your mouth and prove it. The utterances by the goodly Bishop are one of the finest attempts I have seen in the quest to prove just how foolish even a clergyman can be.

    Whenever the question of Freemasonry is publicly discussed people of all walks of life seem to lose their powers of rational thinking and descend into the most vile and base kind of vitriol, attributing all sorts of sinister and unfounded motives to noble actions and intentions.

    For the record, Freemasonry is an organisation that is built upon the principles of Brotherly Love, Truth, and Relief: Brotherly love to our fellowmen, standing on the principles of truth, and giving aid to those in need. This has been so from the very inception of Freemasonry. It is for this reason that even the members of the Clergy have ALWAYS been a part of the organisation. Furthermore, Freemasonry has built this world as many, many, many prominent and distinguished leaders all over the world were and are Freemasons. In fact, many civil organisations such as Lions and Rotary can trace their roots right back to Freemasonry. Many of the principles by which ordinary people live are Masonic in nature.

    The donation made by this specific Masonic Lodge is nothing new, as Freemasons have been making these kinds of donations here in Antigua for eons.

    This sensationalism and misguided thinking by people such as Bishop Browne serves no useful purpose in our society and has the effect of turning off well intentioned people who want to make a positive difference in the lives of those who are most vulnerable in our society.

  6. I love and admire Bishop Browne for his steadfastness to his calling. In this case however, this charge is not a prudent one. The means by which the funds were solicited has no bearing on the good faith donation for its usage. Does he not know that some of the tithes and offerings that his church has reaped were derived from secular and sinister means as well? The donation was blessed and is now sacred in the sight of the Almighty, if he truly believes in the Bible. How can he substantiate the earnings of his congregation?
    There are fundraising exercises being held in vast jurisdictions to aid in educational, medical and tragic life altering needs of people in financial direstraits.
    It is imperative that we live our lives with certain degree of pragmatism.

  7. Hmmmmm wow! You all always judging like you all are almighty. Mr Brown why don’t you donate the money to the hospital? I never see a set of people that is willing to sit back and give the devil power. You all most stop.

  8. What is symbolic is that smile on the health monster’s face. If you walk the halls of slbmc, ppl whisper to each other – look Satan coming.
    Also study the disposition of the two gentlemen standing directly behind of the number 86700. Write their names in caps on a piece of paper. Do you know that evil is very rife in Antigua? Do you wonder why some ppl manage to land coveted positions without actually being exceptional?

  9. The title of the Lodge member tells it all. Worship Master?????

    Father help us

    Come Jesus come

  10. a woman and man, of nature good and evil, walked up Mount Obama and ascended into the sky.

  11. @J a Alfred Anthony…..kmft free mason is evil its a brotherly hood of evil who worship the devil an sell there soul for money so dnt talk crab about friendly organization kmt
    who u all trying fool here its not right why would a hospital accept money from free masonry to buy ultrasound machine to go use an innocent ppl kmft they BETTER RETURN THAT DEVIL MONEY!!! TO THE DEVILS how dare them even take the money in the first place it was never given out a goodness of there heart but out of spiritual an thats not right
    dnt mix patient in bullshit they already sick they dnt need free mason to kill them faster

  12. I put money i made from selling drugs and sex in the collection plate. Do you question your congregation about where they aquire their funds? there’s alot more pressing issues to be addressed and you’re silent about them. this is a donation towards improving our health care system so shut up. preach about the pastors sexing off the congregation and feeling up young girls…

  13. ‘Bishop’ Charlesworth Browne why don’t YOU donate some funds to buy an ultrasound machine if you’re so against this charitable gift? And what do you mean ‘angel number’? What are you, some kind of new-age, spiritual baddie?
    The sinister and evil that you should be concerned about is that which takes place in churches (even YOUR OWN) where the most vulnerable who turn to religion for comfort are taken advantage of by pastors, ‘Bishops’ and the like.

  14. But does it mean that in order to give help and support, all of them must have the biggest jobs in the land? Young men know now that to get anywhere they have to join the lodge.

    We have problems in our election system because two lodge men, one of them a declared Worship Master in the lodge, have been places at the top of the system and they will do what they are bid to do. That is not only obscene, but also very frightening. Just letting them know they are living for the moment, and their stars are shining bright. For the moment.

    I’m no fan of the bishop but I too believe that ill-gotten gains do not serve the benefactor in good stead.

  15. A lot of myths need to clarify amongs us Caribbean , the Masonic lodge is civic group such a lion, Kiwani club , rotary etc. we need a more reading society. Most of the people that are led by the said bishop doesn’t know a clue about Christianity or the Bible, they are sheep’s that are led.

  16. you see y the pastors keep quiet?
    anyway ultrasound, babies, midwife, midwifery board…. hmm
    a new world order

  17. They [ALL RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS], serve, the same #gods. They simply do so, in varying [degrees], as they vie for more patrons to keep and further their causes.

    Plain and simple; this is no more or less, than #OBEAH vs #OBEAH or High_Science vs High_Science.
    Their crosses #❌🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿✝️🏥❎☦️🎿❎🏴‍☠️☠️🤞🏾⚔️🎌🏴‍☠️☠️💀are simply different versions of the same thing, as is their #ORDERS.

  18. I grew up hearing lots of stories, but I wonder who is more evil, we as a country or the Masons? The Mason’s to me is a brotherhood just like any Fraternity you join while in University, but we in these islands are consumed so much by darkness, that anytime we heard the word Masons evil pops up immediately.
    Educate us more about this dollar amount and what the good book say.

  19. Bishop Charlesworth Browne, you would do well to remember that when you are pointing 👉🏾 your finger at others, there are 3 others pointing at you.

    BTW, apt surname 😉

  20. Now, since all these Non_Profit aka #not_for_profit, yet makes more profit(s), than any other businesses religious institutions, that is; and since, these self proclaimed [gods] now more majestical, mystical than those of Mt.Olympus are DEMANDING (last week, it was bishop Hensewort Jonas demanding, that the marijuana law be repealed. I am wondering, if he’s #buddy_BUDdy with Bishop T. D. Jakes and Diddy); again, since these religious zealots wants to be the governing body in the Parliament, how about these few things….

    A blogger referenced some last week, as they commented on Jonas_Edict. Here are some more…

    A…The religious organizations must form their own OFFICIAL Political Party and stop piggybacking on the current crooked ones we have in Antigua, Barbuda & REDONDA.

    B…Register your business, the Church that is, as a for_profit business, pay all applicable taxes etc.

    C…Put up your candidates, produce your manifesto’s win at the polls, since, you’re so confident in your salesmanship, go out and CAMPAIGN! Campaign with a cause. You can even call them Political Revivals. Heck Donald ‘O_Gee’ Trump has mastered the art. Use his template.

    You’ll need at least eight(8) wins, then you can grab Asot the Independent, wash him in the blood 🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸
    of the lamb🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑
    ain’t this some #obeah, #voodoo, ritualistic shit, to wash oneself or others in the blood of an animal which was sacrificed?

    Now you got control of the government! You are the Ruling Arm of the Government.
    Please, just one thing, do not bring wars like those in the Middle East to our shores.

  21. All the Bishop needs to do is to offer the MBS to bless it and take away all the curses that it may have. If he believe strongly in the power of his religion.

  22. This hypothetical charlatan has the nerve to utter this foolishness. This is priceless coming from a man who wrote a bounced check to pay for a church knowing well he didn’t have money in his account.
    This grifter takes money from people in his church who are known adulterers, thieves, fornicators, whores; and DL men/women yet he wants the hospital to return a gift that could save thousands of lives.
    Make this idiotic utterance make sense.

  23. I think the Bishop should stay out of this one. There are a lot of persons in the church that are part of the lodge. Sometimes you have to take care of your backyard before you interfere with others.

  24. He need to give the church people back their offering as well.

    This man sickens me. He is functionally mad and we are all overlooking his failed mental state. The level of his desire to be relevant is concerning when he is not ignoring alllll Easter Fetes to target UWI he is asking to return money.

    Lead by example fake preacher! Give the people whose money you take Sunday after Sunday back!

  25. Charles worth! You give the money to the hospital!!!! So the lodge can get back their check.

    If you can’t shut the ….. up and stop returning progress. You are an OBSTRUCTIONIST. That what you do! Oppose every god damn thing around here and think that you are the voice of God.

    You are a mad man! Just like brother Connie and Prince. Only difference you have not started to walk as dirty and untidy.

    You give the money! Fool!

  26. It is quite surprising that so many seemingly are so ignorant of the basic concept of Freemasonry. Antigua & Barbuda 🇦🇬 is in dire need of enlightened. It can be found on by the way. 👁

    Think of it 🤔: How can a monetary contribution from a fraternity towards the purchase of required medical equipment, be interpreted as having sinister intentions, tied to the demise of future patients? 💭 😲 😱

    @J. Alfred Anthony, your earlier contribution was note worthy. 👍 Several other contributions resonated with reason & common sense.

    Let’s not get started with the fingers pointing:

  27. Just some advice to both parties:

    Bishop, your judgements seem to be misguided and based off a hoax and conspiracy that has been debunked (by those who value truth) within a decade since its claims in the late 1800’s. Did you also know that all ‘lodges’ are not of the same origin and motive just as not all ‘churches’? Please do some educated research on the nature of fraternal organizations and have a basic idea of organizational structure before misleading yourself and the flock that is entrusted to your care. Find peace within yourself, your neighbor and with God without the need to judge (and mislead) others. Influential people should be to furnished with truth on any matter that they address.

    To those who care to know, the article should have read ‘Worshipful Master’ and not ‘Worship Master’. This is a typographical error. The origins of the formal title ‘Worshipful’ is old British and simply refers to someone with a particular ‘Distinguished’ rank or honor.

    TO THE MASONS, 1 Cor 13:3 states: “If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.”

    Just ensure that whatever good you do, do it unto God, and heartily also, and not as unto men, neither do you need their praise. Scripture also says in Matthew 6:3, “But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth”. This is to ensure that your good is with pure motives and to protect your intentions from those who do not understand your charity.

    Just my word of advice.
