We seldom employ the "Caps Lock" key as a general rule... And we frequently rely on the ATS Search function, friend to Mason and non-Mason alike.

Ah, another thread on Masonry!!! How delightful and just what ATS needs!!!


Freemasonry is a fraternity. To be a candidate for membership, you must believe in a Supreme Being. Entry-level candidates have a background investigation conducted to determine if they are upright citizens of the community, after which they are required to make a commitment to be morally sound in all of their actions.

Many of the Masonic teachings are rooted in moral allegories that are acted-out in plays or ritualistic performances that include elaborate costumes (have you ever seen the constumes of the Shriners on the tiny go-carts and the clown costumes to make the children laugh???). The highest a candidate can go in Masonry is the third degree. The numerical degrees in the Scottish Rite are higher only in numerical sequence and not in rank (this confuses outsiders to no end). All Masons are equal at the third degree. However, the educational process of morality and discipline continue on in the Scottish Rite or in the York Rite. The educational process can be never-ending.

Masonry is also involved in charity-work to help children. It’s all about the kids.
In a nutshell, Masonry is a fraternity that makes good men even better. At least that’s the goal. The Masonic fraternity is also all about fellowship... and working to make the community a better place.

Masonic lodges exist all across the United States and the world. In fact, I would bet that there is a Masonic lodge near you in your community where good men are becoming even better.
