Well I must say I find that incredibly interesting. Would I be correct in assuming that it would not be looked favourably upon if yes was answered to that particular question?

Pretty sure it's to build up the points necessary to post a thread.

Mr Richard from Oxford, how many posts would you like or need to record tonight? Got enough yet?

I think a lot of freemasons are very conflicted, especially as they reach the higher levels. For example, you can see some of this in the posters here. (I am a new poster but I've been lurking for a long time). A certain unnamed friend of mine who happens to post here very frequently is a 96-degree Memphis Misiriam adept and very high (i.,e. head of a national council) of his group. But I know he feels something is "not quite right" about it and I would wager it keeps him up at night.

I've got enough guys! Although that wasn't what I was trying for.

What is the 96 degree? I maybe new, but not ignorant and unlettered in masonry history? what is that?

Officially there are only 3 degrees to Masonry, ending with degree-number-three. However, the Scottish and York rites include higher degrees for those who wish. Scottish rites run to 33rd-degree. There are other "Rites" that offer even higher degrees but not all freemasons accept them. Memphis Misriam was founded I think over 200 years ago and its always been a controversial part of the Masonic structure, with some refusing to acept its validity. This one runs to 99 degrees and has been accussed of "degree-peddling": i.e., exploiting Masons by simply squeezing money out of them so they can get a pretty collection of titles and medals. Its worth noting, however, that both Garabaldi (Italian Revolution leader) and Napoleon were involved with Memphis-Misiram right, and this rite acquired a slightly unsavory reputation for alleged activities during the french revolution. Still, it persists, although many Masons consider it "Irregular" or "unorthodox" freemasonry. They also have a slightly unsavory reputation and their names come up a lot in connection with NWO and conspiracy theories.

Thanks....

I have been a mason for only a year and haven't had the time or energy to join the other bodies yet...I'll look into it.

Can you at least remember what lodge you are a a member of, and what city or town it's in? College is hard, but i did it. Take a breath !

I sent you a u2u...

Law school might as well have a pledging period and 3rd degree added into it...

did the u2u go through?

Who? To Me? I got nothing. Why a U2U instead of a response here? For some one who just registered hours ago, you know a lot about U2U. Why not answer here? We're all friends, it's free game, is it not?
