The Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Freemasonry

Do you recall the parallels I drew between the Mormons, the Jehovah's Witnesses, and Freemasonry a few months ago in the journal? Some may have felt I was being unfair and a little harsh - but Svali confirmed it for me. This is what I said in the journal: 

There are a couple of things that both Church of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons), and the Jehovah’s Witnesses share. Both of the founders were Freemasons, and Freemasonry denies the Biblical declaration that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Heaven (John 14:6). Freemasons teach that there are many paths to the light (everlasting life).
Charles Taze Russell, who founded the Watchtower Society (Jehovah Witnesses), was a member of the Rosicrucian cult, accused by his wife of taking gross improprieties with other women, and is a known crook. C.T. Russell is buried in a Masonic cemetery.
The relationship between Freemasonry and the Latter-day Saint movement began early in the history of Mormonism. Joseph Smith, Jr. and Brigham Young were Freemasons, and so were the founding members of a town in Nauvoo, Illinois in March 1842. There are some similarities between Mormon temple worship and symbolism, and the stories and symbols of Freemasonry. Smith was also visited several times by what he believed was an angel. But the messages the angel brought was blatantly unbiblical, so in reality it was a demon.
A doctrine both of these churches have in common is that they do not believe in the deity of Jesus Christ. Neither church believes that Jesus is 100% man and 100% God. This is a fundamental message of the Bible, and a doctrine of the [true] Church of Jesus Christ.
Satan realizes that he must first dethrone the true God in the hearts and minds of people. That is, he must attack the Lordship of Jesus Christ and take as many people to hell with him as possible. Please read these verses: Isa. 9:6; Heb. 1:1-3, 8; John 1:1-3, 14; Ex. 3:14,15 & John 8:58; John 8:23,24; John 14:7- 9; and John 20:28.
Do you recall my Alien Gospel article? The message aliens (demons) are conveying to their abductees is one that rejects almost every Biblical truth about Jesus Christ. They falsely teach that Jesus is not God, He does not forgive sins, and He is not the only way of salvation.
If you are from either of these churches, you will probably respond one of two ways: both organizations should not be judged by the inadequacies of their founders, or you are overstating the case. My response is: the organization is only as good as its roots, and I found more charges against both of them than what I did state.
 Now, I've accused Glenn Beck of being an mainstream media puppet, but could he be an insider too?
