Well, heres how you look at it. In every ten people how many can you expect to be perfect people? No all of them, thats for sure. I am sure that there are lodges that may have been corrupted. Does not mean all masons are the same. Do not judge them as those who hunger for the knoweledge, but do not deserve it. For they are jealous indeed. Do what you feel is right. If it feels right to join the lodge, then do so. If not, then dont join. Easy as that.
"as a Master, the Mason is taught the last, the most important and most necessary of truths, that having been faithful to all his trust, he is at last to die, and to receive the rewards of his fidelity."

Yes. There are two penalties in Freemasonry...suspension and expulsion. If you are suspended, you can at some time be reinstated to full membership. When you are expelled you are no longer a Mason...and you never will be again.
