It's so easy for people to spread lies, deceit and paranoia without any proof. The masons are not evil - quite the opposite. You may come to our lodge building and examine it top to bottom, ask any question you want and observe all of our public ceremonies.

Of course your entire post is an example of trying to link correlation with causation, if it were true (and as I just stated, it is not). Simply because every case in a group has a characteristic, it does not mean that characteristic causes action.

Helping parents at no cost to themselves by giving them info that only the parents have a copy of that they can give to the police to help find their child in the event that the child comes up missing? Wow those evil masons, doing a service at no cost that would help in identification of missing children, why that certainly sounds awful.The only thing wrong with this program is the name of it is godawful and makes people paranoid.If they called it something less likely to alarm people, it may have been met with applause instead of paranoia.
Who said anything about a monitoring device? This is data, given to the parents only, for use in worst-case scenarios. Don't know where you're getting the idea that this is something that could be used against anyone.
