Yeah, I'm going to be a bit skeptic about this one.
(1) Why would you base you research on masonry by reading ATS? Obviously all of the forums here have, at best, a conspiracy bent, and some of the
stuff posted is quite literally - crazy. The same thing for the secret societies forum - and that's ok because it IS a conspiracy site. But if you
were really interested in masonry, why in the world would consider ATS a primary source?
(2) As Augustus points out, your post indicates you initiated an EA and then sat in the meeting. Clarify that one for us. If you don't know why we
would ask about this, it will tell us much.
(3) Statements like "if this is such a great fraternity, why does no one want to do anything" and "i felt like i joined the clan" is truly
questionable from someone who claims to have begun their journey to light in masonry. I and others have said many times before there are a few "bad"
lodges - if you happened to get a "bad" lodge - then you would of course know what to do after contacting your Grand Lodge. I assure you they
wouldn't stand for what you heard, if what you say is true.
(4) As you must know by now, there are literally hundreds of mason boards that are in a far more friendly environment, in that the boards actually
like masonry - where as in this forum, the topic is constantly being debated on. Why would you not post in some other forum, where this sort of
question would rightfully belong?
