Please don't get me started on this topic again because I tend to get a little obsessive about it. Also please note that this is my belief on Masonry based on the studies that I've done in my free time.
My insight into this topic may be "limited" in a masons eyes.
That I am a outsider and I may not know what I'm talking about.
But I've come to believe that Masonry is all but a stepping stone into the occult world. A small & insignificant step on a person's journey into this underground world of secrets.
"The Blue Degrees are but the outer court of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry."
Sovereign Grand Commander Albert Pike 33°
Morals And Dogma, page 819
In a "Free society" such as ours we cannot have a free country with such organizations such as freemasonry
"The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers, which are cited to justify it."
President John F. Kennedy
Address to newspaper publishers, April 27, 1961.
Freemasonry being the largest "secret society" or :society with secrets", has gotten the brunt of controversy. But there are more sinister organizations that much more important as far as how the world works
