This is not a masonic interpretation that I've ever heard of what you think is a masonic handshake. Care to share your source on this one?

How many handskaes have you guys seen?

In duncans I see some but online I see different ones.

Also the phrases of recognition are they used? Are they only used in lodge proceedings or like if you cross another Mason? I am under impression it is or was a european thing.

Please stick to the topic of this thread, which is about identifying masonic handshakes in the media and elsewhere.

Please feel free to discuss jim shaw in a thread about him (or start one if there isn't one, providing some background info, your thoughts, etc).

I'd imagine why Masonic hand shakes are rather average is because they don't wan't to be noticed. Yet it's still the small difference that counts.

You guys have got it all wrong.

We got rid of the secret handshakes a long time ago, nowadays there is a secret milkshake instead.

Actually he is VERY serious. The "secret milkshake of a Master Mason" is a highly guarded possession of ours.

Not to mention the "Grand Mailing Sign" (We only use that one at the Post Office!)

I thought i add my 2 cents on this even though it has been some time since the thread started.

Let me address the "secret handshake" first if it is so secret, why is it all over the internet? i even found videos of it.
regardless of that. look in your community, people shake hands differently everywhere. a middle class person shakes it differently then a high class person it is just a fact.
and i think we came to the conclusion that there is a handshake, so what...?

then we have those that ask how to identify a mason. OMG really, you want to know who is a mason, so that you wont have to be around them anymore. well: first off, the likely hood that you have a mason in your family is very big. does that make you a bad person... NO but it does not make you better either.
Second, obviously you are not religious if you do not want to hang out with mason because the bible teaches you to turn the other cheek. in plain english they call you shallow!

history will teach you that the church was responsible for the killings of the Knights Templar with some help from Phillipe. anyway, after helping all thos pilgrims getting with their money to the promised land and helping the church. it was certainly very nice of the church to kill them. oh wait... the bible teaches " thou shall not kill.

and yes in many ways we have to thank the Templars for starting the banking system as we know it.

Look this is a free world, instead of looking on the internet if you know a mason, you should be looking at your child, watch as he throws some gang sign up. but ofcourse that would not happen in your house...dream on!

We are all humans and masons do help each other, communication is easier if you have some belief in common. you would do a favor too for a family member of yours right?

last, those handshakes, it can be used for identification or as a greeting most people that come up to me know i am a Master Mason and a Knight Templar before i shake their hand. shaking someones hand like that won't get you far.

Axeman i am thinking about putting up a site soon about all that rubbish people post on this matter.

Truth, there is a flaw in your slaw. (That's Cole Slaw, meaning something is messed up in your ingrediants producing an unsavory meal. After all, good Cole Slaw is a thing of beauty, especially to a Southern boy like me.)

You say that Mason's can't be Christians because Christians can have no other gods before HIM.

The fact is, Freemason's are allowed to follow what ever religion they wish, as long as they ARE RELIGIOUS. (If I mispeak or misinform, please correct me Masons). Meaning a Mason can, without any reprisal or interference, can choose the Christian God as his one and only God, putting no other gods before HIM, and in fact believing in no other gods at all.

In other words, a Mason is free to be a Christian and a Christian is free to be a Mason. By the same token a Mason does not have to be a Christian, just as a Christian does not have to be a Mason.

From my understanding it seems that your theory is strong... but only due to having a misconception tied into it. IF Masons had to believe in other gods and then place such gods before Christ, then your statement would be utterly true. However, this is not the case at all.

You are right, however, that one who follows a Religion other than Christianity (in it's numerous forms) is considered Pagan. The problem lies in how it is stated. Pagan itself is not evil or bad, but the term has garnered ill repute due to misconceptions and slander. Yes, SOME Pagan religions may seem Evil... others however are wrongly grouped with these and share an image not deserved. It would do well, then, to say EXACTLY WHICH PAGAN RELIGION one references... which is ironic since few can actually name and discuss Pagan Religions as individual religions (myself included, I admit ignorance on this topic).

That's like saying ALL CHRISTIANS ARE EVIL BECAUSE OF THE CRUSADES... well, that was done by the Roman Catholic Church (Catholics ARE Christians, by the way... second only to the Followers of Christ as he lived) and not the, say, Southern Baptist. Also, to say that All Catholics are evil was be just as wrong a generalzation.

It's painting with to broad a brush.
