According to the Rotary International's own website:
On 23 February 1905, Paul P. Harris, Gustavus Loehr, Silvester Schiele, and Hiram E. Shorey gathered in Loehr’s office for what would become known as the first Rotary club meeting.
Who was Gustavus (or Gustave) Loehr, who was one of the founders of the Rotary Club? He was a Freemason.
The Rotary Club was founded as an extension of Freemasonry, another club that they could use to control its members. According to the Rotary Global History Fellowship:
We know that many of the early Rotarians were Masons and that, according to C.R. Hewitt in 'Towards My Neighbour', some Rotary clubs recruited exclusively from Freemasons until the practice was banned in the 1920s.
Make no doubt about it, the Rotary was founded as a thoroughly Freemasonic club controlled by the Freemasons themselves. This means that it is very likely that Rotary club presidents and top members are directly controlled by Freemason puppet masters.
Just look at their symbol! A six-spoked wheel.
It [the six-spoked wheel] symbolizes unity, movement, the sun, the zodiac, reincarnation, and earth's cycles of renewal. Pagans use it in astrology, magic and many kinds of rituals...Later, "Christians [Catholics] adopted the form, changing it slightly, so that it became a Christ monogram drawn within a circle."
Apparently, for high level Rotary club members, the following badges are awarded:
From all of this evidence, it seems plain to me that the Rotary Club is simply a branch of Freemasonry and is controlled by Freemasonry (which itself is controlled at top by the Black Pope).
