I was just wondering why all your Masonic buddies aren't flagging and starring this thread. It is just so wonderful how the lovely apron wearing Satan lovin Masons help others.

That will do. You just stepped over the line. Anymore posts like that one and you will be post banned, pending staff decision on whether it is permanent.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize this was for a place for the Masons to express their love for each other.

Is this a Secret Society forum in Conspiracies or what!!!????

Boy, you´re in a bad mood today. Its not actually a screen you are talking to here, its human beings with a beating heart. Maybe you will someday learn to appreciate that.

Flags and Stars and Points are trivial, compared to the true honor of conversing and sharing information with educated brothers here on ATS.

That probably has something to do with the fact that we do not need to trumpet our good works to know masonry tries to to do good in our communities.

Oh, and to intrepid:
. If I could give you an award, honestly I would.

This is a place for people to discuss secret societies in a civil, scholarly atmosphere.

Individuals unable to do that are welcome to share their opinions somewhere other than ATS.

ATS Secret Society forum.. a place to discuss Secret Societies..

Not ONLY conspiracies within or because of secret societies like Masons, but a place to discuss all aspects of Secret Societies -- Non-profit research centers run by a supposed Secret Society fits the bill for discussion?

I don't know exactly why it is you hate Masonry and Masons them selves, or if you even really do. Or perhaps I have a hard time understanding so much senseless hate.

It appears that this nice little non-profit, tax exempt charity also gets federal grants.

Can someone explain to me why the Mason wonderful charity work is being funded by Federal grants.

And someone show me a paper that has been published in the last 50 yrs.

So you see, all you got to do is dig a little, and suddenly this wonderful charity doesn't seem so wonderful, at least to me.

I wonder what I would find if I keep digging. Thanks for the lead.


What's wrong with a non profit research institution applying for and working on government grants?

Haha ... well it's too bad the OP was banned.. I really wanted to hear why he thought it was a BAD thing that a research facility was going after grants...

Tamuh ..

You post pictures of some kind of EMS service by Masons...

And picture of the Red Cross and Red crescent. Which are not Masonic in any way, and have no connections what so ever..

And then a random picture that, naturally, has nothing to do with the two before it.

And then, on top of all of that, expect people to at least assume there was supposed to be a point behind it???

Typical response.
(Hi Rockpuck
)


Looks like someone's not studying their symbols.

(Or they are, and for some reason think that completely concealing their meanings is still relevant anymore.)

Im with Rockpuck on this one. I can usually keep up very well with people who start throwing around concepts of spirituality or religion, but I cannot do so with Tamahu. I was, however, able to keep up very professors in a top Religious Studies PhD program (I'm not a Religion PhD...yet, just was allowed to take an elective in it). This tells me either Tamahu is far beyond us in his knowledge of religion, or hes trying to connect things that are not innately connected.

Ah no.. he just ties everything into Gnosticism..

Some times a good read..

But um.. The first picture was a medical sign.. with a snake around a staff .. which is not Masonic, neither is the astric sign .. the snake and staff is the international symbol for health services, thanks to our Greek ancestors I believe..

The only symbol Masonic is the Square and Compass.

The second picture which has now changed by the way.. is a Red cross. Nothing Masonic? .. Red Crescent ... not Masonic? ...

So far the only Masonic symbol is the Square and Compass..

The third picture also has absolutely NOTHING to do with Masonry.. that sign is no where in Masonry or anything affiliated with it.

Nothing to do with "keeping secrets" .. more to do with ....

You being wrong.

Not everything is Gnostic and Mystical.

Its really kind of intimidating to think about just going up to one and ask them..but if thats how its usually done then Ill try it out sometime..I always figgured tho that they only accept members with alot of $ in the bank and I am basically this side of poor. I knew they did alot of charitable work and that the fact that the members Ive always seen are like..either upper middle class or just outright rich. Does your monetary standing in the community count as "having a good standng in the community"?..I dont mean this in a disrespectfull way, Im just asking for I really am intereseted in becoming a member I just dont want to go try and be disapointed If I cant join. I mean I have no criminal record and have been gainfully employed for nearly all my work-aged life..no college but at least HS grad. As I said Im just curious and its easier to ask someone who is a member here first than just going up to a lodge ..knocking on the door and asking.

If it's any consolation, when I became a Mason, I was still a senior in college: my only income at that time was working part time as a roofer.

No. Most Masons have average middle class incomes. Having "good standing in the community" refers to one being respectable and honest, and not to how much money they may have.

You may prefer to email the Grand Lodge in your jurisdiction. Your Grand Secretary could have someone local contact you. If you need help finding the right contact, send me a U2U and I'll look it up for you.

when I became a mason, I was in school, in debt and unemployed. I heard rumors that membership fees were astronomical, but honestly it was less than I waste in a week or two. Your financial standing has nothing to do with being accepted, at least in my area.
