Please Help to Free a Pakistani Christian. By James Reese, Grand Prior Officer of Knights Templar of Scotland. USA

A Response to Mr. Andrew Harwood: By James R. Reese, KGOTJ, Grand Prior of the USA, Scottish Knights Templar.

It is also correct to say that many Christians slaughtered innocent persons in the name of God, but it is also correct to say that Muslims did the same. Most of the "secular" knights were in fact seeking plunder and lands, but the religious Orders of the Knights Hospitallers and Knights Templar we

show the path
where soldiers never die.
