This fixation with the aforementioned Freemason agenda could be considered under the circumstances as radically biased. Like it or not Chad brings up
notions that are VERY relevant and prevalent in some of the conspiracy communities I have observed. It may no the fair, but, this isn't a game, and
'fair' is a concept you have to agree upon or else it's just an empty word.
Not being a Freemason myself, I cannot speak authoritatively in any way about what the 'truth' is regarding their beliefs. And I am often reticent
to even broach the subject because there is no denying the self-identified members herein become rabidly arrogant and self-congratulatory in their
'participation' in what seems to be barely as much a debate as an outright Freemason revival.
I am in no way on either side of the evil vs. indifferent, Freemasons vs. good regular folks, or whatever. I don't care, I have no faith in
'organizations' including them, sorry to say - no disrespect meant on a personal level. Your clubs are you business. I just feel that once you
gather more than a dozen or so people into a club, group-think takes over and I.Q.'s plummet accordingly.
I have to say, Freemason arrogance is the main course of the day thus far. They seem to think that people fearing or overestimating the influence of
the order is a joke. It isn't to them, and frankly your callous responses aren't very 'becoming' or indicative of the better nature of your
angels. I have seen this ridiculous 'show me the proof' garbage tossed around like its a debate point. I have an idea - do us all a favor - be
proactive, prove it otherwise yourself, or isn't the truth worth the effort?
On the other hand there are some here to think that because they have secrets and rely on a tradition of symbolism and ritual that makes them Satanic
or darkly evil. I think Satan would require much more than that. Heck, Jewish, Catholics, Voodoo, all spiritually-oriented groups rely on a
tradition of symbolism and ritual. Its part of the human language of the metaphysical. Get over it already. Insofar as being a well spring of evil
oppression I would have to give the order a 2 out of 10. Outside of a well rehearsed obnoxious arrogance they are not that all-powerfully impressive.
I resist anti-Freemason because it echoes the same bigotry cast on any religious culture that's out of favor.
Freemason have to contend with the distrust for one simple reason: secrets. By excluding some from knowledge you are the proud owner of the distrust
by your own hand. It is regrettable that no amount of 'good will' ever seems able to overcome the distrust which is nurtured by secrets. This
maxim is not limited to the Freemason order.
This whole 'homosexual' angle seems contrived to me. of all the things for a group to espouse, who one has sex with seems awfully trite and
pointless. If debauchery is their aim they hit closer to the mark with all those "Jester' scandals of late. Gays are yesterday's issue, and not
likely to 'shock' many at all these days.
