Good afternoon/morning to everyone.

I have been lurking for a while on this site and have enjoyed reading the discussions on here. I finally created an account to be able to participate.
I grew up in the Kansas city area before joining the Army. I moved to Texas when I left the Army and love it here.

Fun fact about myself. I am a Freemason and that is one of the reasons I wanted to create this account. I have seen some anti Freemason posts on there that had wrong information. I am not here to argue with anyone, just want to give them the correct information and let other readers decide.

Cool. I've known a couple Freemasons. I've also heard conspiracy theories about satanic worshiping at the top, but that it's kept secret. Similar to in Scientology, I suppose, where they keep the part of aliens secret from the majority.

Welcome to ATS, I think we do have a few members who are masons.
Remember the tin-foil hat folding lessons are a must and bring the heavy duty stuff but don't let DB Cowboy borrow it, I'm not saying what he wraps in tin-foil!

I found that the foil for grilling works best.

That is one of the reasons it took me a while to join. I read about the conspiracy theories and I was not sure I wanted to be apart of something like that. I talked to a good friend and coworker, that is a 33°Scottish Rite Mason, and asked him lots of questions about Freemasonry before joining. Most of the questions I had was from the conspiracy videos that I have seen. I ended up talking to him for almost a year before going to visit a lodge to check it out myself.

While Freemasonry is religious in nature, it is not a religion or a replacement for religion, but rather compliments it. Religion and politics are two topics that we are not allowed to talk about in a lodge and it is strictly enforced. This is because these two topics divide people rather than bringing people together.

Yes there are secrets that we can not talk about, but any fraternity or sorority at any college has similar secrets. I have wondered what my wife had to do for her initiation to her sorority while she was in college. She will not give up her secrets and I have not told her about mine also.

I like talking about Freemasonry because I met some awesome people and enjoy being a part of an organization that helps the local community. For me it is similar to the brotherhood that we had in the Army. We check up on each other and help each other out when it is needed.

Welcome to ATS!


Don't worry about the conspiracy theory thing. Most folks are conspiracy theorists to one degree or another. It just depends on which theory you choose.
