sure why you FreeMasons made this all so difficult. It appears you want to make your fraternity mysterious and not share any information with the
world....thus you are all guilty of making people not understand your group and also guilty of causing people to believe the supposed lies being
spread about the organization.
You asked why Masons are advertising on TV/Radio and it's been answered SEVERAL times (at least twice by myself)
You DIDN'T ask "what are the Freemasons about" "Will someone share with me why they are Freemasons?" You made ridiculous claims about
Freemasonry's alledged connection with the (I guess "modern-day") Illuminati.
There is TONS of information being shared with the world on the internet and in bookstores all over. All you have to do is look. Masons don't have
to point it out to you. I'll give you a hint, though. If you want legitimate information, use sources from actual Masons, Grand Lodges, etc.
Anti-Masonic sites and publications tend to spread something other than "light" (if you know what I mean)
is FULL of very good Masonic information. It also has PAGES AND PAGES refuting (with documentation, I might add) garbage spread by Anti-Masons and
A Google search for "Grand Lodge" will turn up numerous Grand Lodges from various jurisdictions that are FULL of good info on Masonry. A Google
search for "Freemasonry" or "Masonry" will turn up a lot, too, but you'll have to put your boots on and wade through some of the "non-light"
that is being spread by those "non-light" spreaders.
As far as hearing from Masons about what we do, why we're Masons, etc. that simply doesn't fit into the purposes of this forum. This is for
conspiracy-related topics and there's no conspiracy involved in why I am a Mason or what Masonry does.
If the ATS owners would set up a Freemasonry forum, it would be fine, but extolling the puposes of Masonry simply isn't appropriate for this thread
or this forum.
Send me a U2U and I'll GLADLY tell you anything you want to know about Freemasonry (as would, I'm sure, ANY Mason on this forum) We have nothing to
...and in case you missed the answer to the only real question of this thread.
Masons advertise on TV & Radio to let others know who we are and what we do. Like any organization, we MUST have new members joining to stay in
existance. Older members die or lose interest, new members must take their place. If we do not bring new members into the fraternity, some day
there will be no fraternity.
And apparently it's working. I see and hear of a LOT of younger guys (20's - 30's) joining our fraternity.
And....I never said I disliked any of you......
I'm glad that you don't dislike us. It's not very sensible to dislike someone you don't even know, ya' know?
If I were a Mason, I would be concerned about members of the Illuminati also being members of the Masons (i.e. the Rothschilds).
I won't respond to that except to say that every time Illumanti gets mentioned you get bent out of shape and claim the subject is being changed...and
yet, you keep turning to the Illuminati (an organization who's existence isn't proven...and with good reason)
..but otherwise, it appears to be a pretty decent organization!! Except, of course, for the fact that some members of the fraternity have a chip on
Seems to be going around, huh?
I think to learn more I need to become one!!
You would learn a LOT if you did. But if you are an HONEST man and truthful you had better keep this in mind. You will be asked a number of
questions before being initiated; two of which are:
Do you solemnly declare, upon your honor, that, unbiased by friends and uninfluenced by mercenary motives, you freely and voluntarily offer yourself a
candidate for the mysteries of Freemasonry?
Do you solemnly declare upon your honor, that you are prompted to solicit the privileges of Freemasonry by a favorable opinion conceived of the
Institutaion and an honest desire for knowledge?
If you cannot HONESTLY answer these questions "Yes" then you may be initiated, and hold a membership in a Lodge, but you'll NEVER really be a
I don't know how to explain it any better than that.
