The Royal Order of Jesters which runs some charitable hospitals and is planning on closing down some of them, "because of the bad economy" has been caught mismanaging its funds and a good number of the members who also belong to the Masonic Shriners Lodge, were engaged in sex-tourism, preying on poor Indian girls as young as 9 years old.
A few days after that, I learned about how 19 Jesters were named on a witness list for the defense in a defamation action between two fishing tour operators who took groups to fish the Amazon in Brazil. "'Jesters' To Testify about Illegal Drugs, Child Prostitution?" was published about three weeks later, on March 6, 2008, and reported how these Jesters were expected to testify about "their first hand knowledge of prostitution, minor prostitution, use of illegal drugs and/or the alleged illegal entry of one of the tour operators into Indian reservations by the plaintiff and his customers."
Masonic organizations have long been hostile to the Catholic Church, and given the sexual immorality of their society alone, one could understand their hostillity but there's something deeper than that.
The Jesters, whose boards and trustees are made up primarily of Shriners, are able, since many are attorneys, police officers and Judges, to threaten and intimidate individuals who "ask questions" about how they spend their money.
They remind us of the Quasi-Masonic organization the Bishop of Regensburg recently accused of promoting child abuse. 
Sandy Frost's lengthy series of articles lays bare the corruption and unpunished predatory activities of these Masons, which often goes unpunished, here.
