Was Mikhail Gorbachev ,the last Soviet leader,jewish and freemason?
- J. R.Lv 61 decade agoFavorite Answer
No on both counts.
He was born into the Russian Orthodox Catholic faith but was not an adherent to the faith being that religious practices were essentially banned by the Soviet Union.
Freemasonry was also oppressed by the Soviets.

He was not Jewish, I'm pretty sure of that. As for a freemason, I've never heard anything like that and I would kind of doubt it. But I think he was Russian Orthodox but did not practice any religion, at least during the time of the Soviet Union.

"Nearly all world leaders are part of the Freemasons 33rd Degree Scottish Rite. George Bush (Jr. and Sr.!), Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, and Mikhail Gorbachev are all 33rd degree Masons. "
No- none of those men are Masons, let alone 33rd Degree.
"Other Masons have included Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Samuel Adams, and Paul Revere."
Yes- they were Masons.

Evidently, Gorbachev is a Christian. See below.Source(s): http://www.officialnewworldorder.com/html/the_maso... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1582213/...

Nope, not a Freemason.
...and, just so we're clear, Obama is whatever group he is talking to. He's white, he's black, he's christian, he's muslim, he's french, he's german, we stormed the beaches on Normandy ... He's a liar. It's only a matter of time before he speaks in front of a Jewish group and suddenly becomes jewish, too.Source(s): I'm a Freemason.

Gorbachev was as Jewish as Achamdinijad, or Obama.

he was not a freemason.
to some others:
staisil --- neither Bush, nor Clinton, Blair or Gorby are freemasons... your sources are wrong. Franklin, Washington, Adam and Revere were --- does that tell you something about the quality of people in freemasonry vs those who aren't????

no he was none of those things, but he was alien who communicated to his home planet through the birthmark on his head.
