Well taht 's all fine and dandy if you're a male- otherwise it's Eastern Star or Co Masons for you my little gal. Tried it paid my 75$ wrote out
extensive explanation to their application. Decided to be direct and truthful sinc ethey claim to be an istitution for human growth. got the call back
from the Grand master of Co- masonary- love to have you , expect one minor flaw. My grandfather was a 32 nd mason (alcoholic abuser) , my uncles all
masons (good men). Frankly they were being evaluated on their response to my honesty. they failed- preferred members keep their 'faults' to
themselves - otherwise it may be something they have to help you grow through. Talk the Talk, Can't walk the walk. But they invited me back as soon
as I quit that pesky little habit.
I've spent my life in the service of man and beast and yet I'm not worthy of their inclusion. Read their philosophy and mission statement and see if
it jives with their practices. Origianlly in Scotland Masonary was Free- women included, now it's just a bunch of good ol' boys.
The mere fact they ask these personal questions that amount to nothing is to judge and thus not a Free society. Theres been stories throughtout
history questioning their motives or protecting their name. I think the attention is unwarranted- they're just another group of people trying to
raise their social status by affiliation, not good works, not inclusion into the brotherhood of man, nor enlightenment.
Your nothing more that an older version of the Lions, Elks, Moose, Eagles
I'm looking now for a group that will put me to work and use what ever talents I possess to improve the human, animal and ecological condition. Lofty
intellectualism has long since passed, probably the last great contribution was the American Revolution- since then , not so much.
