I don't post about masonry, simply because ATS has no collective memory. The attack on masonry this week will read the same as the thread from October, which is a rehash of a similarly worded attack from February 2005, etc. Often by the same poster, or a sock puppet. You aren't going to make any "progress," any more than you will with your crazy alzheimer-ridden patient in a nursing home.
Not worth my ongoing energy, except maybe twice a year or so. It's like wishing happy birthday to some senile old man. I do it because of who I am, not because of who the patient is.

I am well aware that the freemasons are a society with secrets, as apposed to being a 'secret society.' There are many Freemasons on ATS, and are familiar with the Secret Societies Field. My question is 'why?
I understand that Freemasonary is always under scrutiny for being a secret society, or having an 'evil' agenda. But surely the reason for your being here cannot only be to defend yourselves. Surely there is more to it than just that... So why?

The thing that gets me with the freemasons is the references to Lucifer in their books and things. What is the deal with that? It just seems like something dark and mysterious is going on behind the scenes and secrets dont help that image. Maybe some members could clear that up...

You guys know nothing and live in a conditioned reality, that is why you are freemasons. Come back when you climb in the hierarchy and get to know some real stuff (which will never happen). Are you even aware of that you are participating in disguised satanic rituals?

I have said it time and time again. Everyone keeps referring to the Masons as a "secret" society. They are not...
An organization, such as a lodge, that requires its members to conceal certain activities, such as its rites of initiation, from outsiders.
