I'm still quite stumped over the age range requirement. So is it something to prepare the youngin's for adulthood Freemasonry? And if so, why? I'm
sorry but this whole Freemasonry business is freaking me out. It seems more like a brainwashing tactic to me, sorry if I offended anyone but that's
The only reason I am so curious is because of the recent invite from my father-in-law to meet this guy named "Pete" who is a higher up freemason
because I am losing my job. I now have the sinking feeling that my father-in-law and brother-in-law are Freemasons, but of course other then the
invite to meet with "Pete" they won't let on that they are one and maybe they are not but my father-in-law (great guy btw) seemed to have ties with
a priest who performed a funeral ceremony for his mother-in-law recently and all around the church were freemason symbols and during the service the
priest made several references to the King James version of the bible and he seemed to be quite big on Solomon. Somehow I get the feeling that the
funeral service was "free" if you know what I mean? No, that's ok. LOL! By the way, whenever my brother-in-law talks to his friends he always
refers to them as "brother" which he didn't a few years ago and he always gives them that toe to toe and shoulder to shoulder extended reach hug.
I'm not making this up. Again, they are both good people and I love the dearly, I just don't necessarily agree with Freemasonry from what I've seen
and heard so far because I don't like secrets. I've also heard comments from them to strangers like "What union are you from" after a handshake.
So what do you guys think, are they freemasons or not. You can give me percentages, that'll be fine. Thanks
Edited to add, I forgot to mention that the preacher also made reference to a resort with seperate doors/rooms as what he thinks Heave might be like.
Maybe or maybe not a similarity to the Grand Logde in the sky that you folks believe in.
