Friday the 13th (Article by The Hood ..submitted)

GAW NEWS covers the origins of …..Friday The 13th!

706 Six yeaRS AGO
AND GOLiaTH WAS THeRE!

“Dieu sait qui a tort et a péché.
Il va bientot arriver malheur à ceux qui nous ont condamnés à mort.”
“God knows who is wrong
and has sinned.
Soon a calamity will occur
to those who have condemned us to death”).[

On Friday, 13 October 1307,
Philip ordered de Molay and scores of other French Templars to be simultaneously arrested.
The arrest warrant started with the phrase :
“Dieu n’est pas content, nous avons des ennemis de la foi dans le Royaume”
[“God is not pleased. We have enemies of the faith in the kingdom”].
The Templars were charged with numerous offences
(including apostasy, idolatry, heresy,
obscene rituals and homosexuality, financial corruption and fraud, and secrecy).[

After more bullying from Philip, Pope Clement
then issued the papal bull
Pastoralis Praeeminentiae on 22 November 1307,
which instructed all Christian monarchs in Europe to arrest all Templars and seize their assets.

The whole superstition regarding the unluckiness

 of Friday the thirteenth arose when,
 on Friday, October 13, 1307, King Philip IV of France
 ordered the simultaneous arrest and imprisonment
 of all the available Knights Templar,
and the confiscation of all their worldly goods.
 Because of this unwarranted persecution
 of the Knights Templar, all down the ages,
Friday the thirteenth has been considered an unlucky day ever since.
