The atomic bomb that fell on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945 detonated in
Urakami only 500 m (1640 ft) from the cathedral, completely destroying
it. As Assumption of Mary approached, Sacramentum was held on the day.
Many Christians congregated in the church. Due to heat rays and
collapsed stones all were killed.
Four military targets in Japan were chosen as targets to drop two
atomic bombs. One of these cities, Kyoto, was removed from the list
because of its religious and historical significance to Japan. The
only city with a large population of Christians was chosen as a
replacement even though it had far less strategic military
The largest of the two bombs dropped on Japan was reserved for
Christian Nagasaki, the city with the least military importance of the
four. This city was chosen with the approval of President Harry Truman
a Past Grand Master of Masonry (both of his grandfathers had been
Masons) by Henry Stimson, the Secretary of War. Stimpson had been
appointed to office by President Roosevelt, a Mason, who had chosen
(or had been directed to choose) another Mason as Vice-President.
TO ALL GODLY PEOPLE, In the Citie of London. Having thought it needful
to warn you of the Mischiefs and Evils practiced in the Sight of God
by those called Freed Masons, I say take Care lest their Ceremonies
and secret Swearings take hold of you; and be wary that none cause you
to err from Godliness. For this devllish Sect of Men are Meeters in
secret which swear agains all without ther Following. They are the
Anti Christ which was to come leading Men from Fear of God. For how
should Men meet in secret Places and with secret Signs taking Care
that none observed them to do the Work of GOD; are not these the Ways
of Evil-doers? Knowing how that God observeth privilly them that sit
in Darkness they shall be smitten and the Secrets of their Hearts
layed bare. Mingle not among this corrupt People lest you be found so
at the World's Conflagration.
