I'd known about the Freemasons for a while, so it came as a real shock when I discovered they were operating out of my very own quaint countryside town!

I realised that what I thought was just an old abandoned building had Freemason logos on the door, and once when I was out running I spotted a black limo pull up to the door and a bunch of suited men go inside, along with guys in red robes!

I talked to my mother about it sometime later and she said when she'd been working as head of Tourist Information in the area she'd found all the most important people in the area wore Freemason rings, and that around 90% of the priceless Saxon, Roman, and Georgian buildings were owned by the Masons! Even her new boss in a hotel is a Mason!

Luckily, I managed to score a Freemasonry ring, so I've considered trying to get into once of their meetings!


It's only a small town, so I'm sure the evil they plot in that old black building isn't too daunting, but still anyone who's seen 'Hot Fuzz' will know even small towns can have big conspiracies!

If you think a ring is all it takes to get in the door you are in for a rude surprise.

Who cares if the masons are in your town? i no they're in mine, or at least in my county. I know a few dudes who are like in junior freemasons. I don't think there's anything wrong with free masonry. I havn't really gotten to the the freemasons or anything but they're probably just like the shriners.

For what it is worth, Shriners are Freemasons. One needs to become a Mason to join this appenadant body of Masonry.

So in other words, you felt that you had no choice but to give in and submit yourself to their society in order to be "Free and accepted"? Not good.

Yeah, my gut feeling is telling me that the roughly 4 million is way underestimated and some one needs to correct their books.

Ha, I never said I wanted to join, just curious is all! And I heard they have some priceless Roman busts in their building, perfect for funding my evil empire!

Yeah, I'm sure they're just having fun in there with their goat relay races and such! haha! And they certainly do do a lot of charity work in the area so it's not all bad!

Absolutely. In fact here's a very recent and excellent example of what we do when we're not riding goats.

What town is it then?

I work in Eton near windsor and that village is full of masonic signs.

And more!

The earliest use of the word freemason.

Switchblade.

It's Bradford-on-Avon, down in the dark South West! haha! Probably not as important to Masons as Eton but still they find things to do around here.

They actually recently started a campaign to shake off the malicious rumours about them by appearing at loads of charity events and fairs etc.

You hear bad things about the group often but it's important to remember the grass-roots is essentially a well meaning organisation that is good to have around!

There are two lodges near where i live. Im sure there are some nasty masons, but thats not because they are freemasons, its because they are nasty men. It's pretty wrong to judge an entire group of people based on experiences with a small fraction of them, like some members do on this genre. I think its ignorance at the end of the day.

Dude are you kidding me? Whats so bad about us "operating" in your town? Plus something that makes me feel you arnt seeing what your really seeing is because we don't meet everyday....get a grip brother, we arnt bad people and we arnt going to mess with you...alot of you act as if we are demons of some sort yet all we do is give money to people who need it and have cook outs with brethren. I don't know why i even bother posting in these disappointing threads yet i get the urge to try and educate most of you who think Masons are evil people by what you see and read from movies and books...get a grip. You need to worry about the Illuminati, they are the real threat. Btw, good luck trying to get into a meeting...the rings arnt what you need....Plus i think they will be able to tell cause you must be over 20 to 21 to even become a full fledged Mason. Oh and by the way, any mason can have a ring or not cause you have to buy it from your lodge and then the money goes to charity.

There are freemasonry lodges in nearly every county in the country. The average freemasonry lodge is nothing more than a meeting hall.

Forgive me for not knowing, but isn't Freemasonry one of the, or the, largest charitable organization on the planet? Seems a Mason buddy had mentioned this a while back. (Memory is a little lazy in the later term of life)

LOL!!!!


OMFG freemasons are sacrificing babies to the goat headed god ShullBit !!!!!!!!!!!


Seriously though, to become a freemason one must believe in a Grand Creator.

Also, its just a bunch of guys who get together and organize chartiable events n stuff. They make life long bonds with one another, so its basically a friendship club! :p

I would advise you NOT to try and do that.. Not because something might happen to you.. but to save your self from embarrassment. Not only would you have to prove your self a Mason before you even get into the door.. but during the entire meeting you will be the only one not knowing what to do or say ..

People wonder why Freemasons have "secret" modes of recognition ..

seridium



Masons founded the USA they are everywhere in every city every town


No we did not, and no we are not. Freemasonry held many of the Enlightenment ideas, and almost all of the founders where true believers in the Enlightenment philosophies.. naturally because of their own ideologies some joined Freemasonry as well, seeing as Freemasonry held so many of the ideas as the philosophical movement.

Straighten Arrow



Yeah, my gut feeling is telling me that the roughly 4 million is way underestimated and some one needs to correct their books.


Actually, you would be surprised.. Last year a few Grand Lodges in America decided to explore the possibility of an electronic roster of all Masons in the States under their Grand Lodge. So far it has not come about because of the fear someone would steal, hack, distort or steal information from the rosters.. The reason for the roster was that the Grand Lodge has no idea how many Masons are under it. They don't suspect there are more then they know of, but rather less then they think. Small lodges keep dead members, lapsed members and even banned members on the books for funding purposes and a variety of other reasons. Even with the decline in numbers, an actual tally of all Active Freemasons would probably shrink our organization.

But then again, perhaps you know better then me.

The Roman Catholic Church is the largest charitable organization in the world. Actually, they are "thee" largest organization in the world as well. With over 1 billion members.

Um, no. Perhaps a Lodge could have rings to sell the brethren and the money goes to charity but for all intents and purposes, anyone can buy a Masonic ring from anywhere that sells them.

For example: www.gordonsmasonicrings.com...

Are you a Mason?

Every freemason is in for a big surprise when they realize what they have been part of all along when the time comes.

Those who think Freemasonry is ok, good just a fraternity nothing else with tradition has alot to learn.

They won't learn it from their elders,
they will never be told by those who are above them,
only the very few and elite with highest degrees are aloud
for such revelation and it will never be spoken of.

So what do all the secret societies have in common?

Skull & Bones
Bohemian Club
Freemasonry
"
" etc. etc. etc.
Extraterrestrials, UFO’s
New World Order

The word is ARMEGGEDON,

When I was in middle school, I noticed one of my teachers had a free mason magnet on the back of his truck. He was a pretty nice guy, though he would get real quiet when you asked him about it. How does one apply to become a free mason?
