If this is a display of Masonic Brotherhood, by golly, I wish noone to be "brothers".
I am not a Mason, but through my exposure to them on ATS and from reading many of their rituals, I can tell you that the Masons' conduct during the Civil War and their Masonic Charities are more in line with their teachings.
You seem to be blaming one guy exclusively for not doing what needed to be done and "laying low". So why are you attributing the crimes of one man to the whole of Masonry? Why not blame it on him being a male? Or even being an American? How about alcohol?
No one, but the most hardcore anti is blaming freemasonry for Paul Bernardo's crime. Raping and murdering have no place in freemasonry nor does getting pissed drunk and paddling each other.
Go ahead, check out the rituals for yourself. What happened to your friend has nothing to do with the teachings of Masonry.
IMO, the man you mention should have, at the very least been convicted of involuntary manslaughter. I'm as disgusted as you are that he only received a slap on the wrist.

All you have to do is delete some of your older ones. We all get 250. (I've bumped mine up to 550)
