On The Masons

Given that many of the founders of America were Masons, and given that The Catholic Church forbids joining them, is it not at least possible that at one time they were representative of the epitome of Protestant-based rational enlightenment? They were opposed to the encrustation of superstition that had chained western civilization since the chaotic onset of the Dark Ages.
Illuminati, if Satanic would surely not have been aligned with Masonry. George Washington was not one who would have engaged in malevolent superstition and casting of spells! If he had, his myriad of biographers had missed a major part of his life.
What if the Masons, were enlightened in the sense of seeking rational explanations for natural phenomena of which those less enlightened souls were willing to attribute to spirits?
Masonry, to my knowledge is a product of the English-speaking world. IF THERE WERE A SECRET ORGANIZATION THAT HAS THROUGH THE PAST 200 YEARS OR SO SOUGHT TO FURTHER THE WEALTH, POWER, AND ENLIGHTENMENT OF THE ANGLOSPHERE, WHY WOULD THAT NECESSARILY BE A BAD THING?
In the entire history of the humanity there had never been a society constructed in accord with principles described by John Locke, Adam Smith, Jefferson, Madison and others anywhere on this planet. It represents a third way, between Authority invested in the Divine Rights of Monarchs, and Authority vested in the demos, the mob, the tyranny of the majority. When one finds themselves in a nation built on Laws and Liberty and Property Rights, and Due Process, and Government restricted by a Constitution whether explicitly or implicitly, one would likely find an English speaking nation!
IF THAT IS THE MASON MISSION, I WISH I’D BE INVITED!
