can somebody tell me about the signs that make the freemassons know each others.
i know there is something about chaking hands but there should be a lot more ....
can anyone help me???
a VERY good question....actually they are protected by what you would call "masonic law".
We've sworn never to in anger strike a brother Mason, among other things. There are all sorts of stories I've heard, most of them likely legend rather than fact... Sam Houston not killing Santa Anna because Santa Anna gave the Masonic sign of distress. That's one tale, though there's no evidence that Santa Anna was ever a Mason.

I have a question. I have read a few times in books of fiction that Masons hold being a Mason above every other identifier. For example, in one book, one army took prisoners of war from another army. A higher ranking officer who was a Mason recognized one of the prisoners as also being a Mason. From that point forward, the officer did everything he could to help the prisoner. It didn't matter that he was the enemy. Can you explain why it is (assuming that the work of fiction portrayed this accurately) that being a Mason is held to be higher than any other identifier?

but what about the sacrificing of the virgins, and the worshiping of the evil leaders? When do you take time for that? Before or after the "paying of the bills"?
Have you seen the recreation done by The Master's Jewel?

I've recently watched The Man Who Would Be King, at the suggestion of a member here on ATS. I was quite surprise to see an altered version of the one mode of recognition uttered by Michael Caine to the Kipling character.
As many of you no doubt know, Rudyard Kipling was a Freemason.
