I have a question for some of the masons on this site. If it can be answered. I'm sure it has been asked before but I have a unique spin on the question.
I am interested in becoming a Mason. I do not know anything about the Masons really, but an older gentleman I used to spend a good deal of time with was a member and was very proud to be one. He had Masonry memorabilia all over his house and had those little emblems on his car. I was pretty young at the time, so asking him about becoming a member was out of the question, and whenever I would ask about what they were, he would chuckle and play up the whole secrecy thing(just for his amusement I think). Anyways, the old man died recently, and I never really got to ask him about it. I moved to Tulsa, OK about 3 months ago and discovered a huge building for the Scottish Masonic Rite. I will not lie to you and say that my interest in joining is not partly because of the mystery behind it, but I do feel like I would be honoring my friend by joining.
My question I guess, is how to join. I know, I need to ask someone. But I would like to know SOMETHING about the organization before asking. I don't want to sound like to much of a clown going up to some stranger and asking to join, and not having a good response when I'm asked why. Any help or response is appreciated.
