The following US presidents are/were known to wear trousers, many of them wore fancy ones: Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, Polk,
Buchanan, Johnson, Garfield, McKinley, Roosevelt, Taft, Harding, Roosevelt, Truman, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, and both Bush’s.
All the following people are/were also trouser-wearers, most of them wore fancy ones too: Buzz Aldrin, John Glenn, Yasser Arafat, Tony Blair, John
Wilkes Booth, James Cameron, Winston Churchill, Walt Disney, Bob Dole, Frederick Engel, Newt Gingrich, Mikhail Gorbachev, Al Gore, Billy Graham,
Richard Holbrooke, J. Edgar Hoover, Colonel Mandell House, Saddam Hussein, Burl Ives, Jesse James, Jesse Jackson, Henry Kissinger, Vladimir Lenin,
Robert McNamara, Karl Marx, Lord Alfred Milner, Benjamin Netanyahu, Albert Pike, Prince Philip, Colin Powell, Cecil Rhodes, James Rothschild, Charles
Taze Russell, Joseph Stalin, Strom Thurmond, Leon Trotsky, Paul Warburg, H.G. Wells and thousands more.
See how much sense that makes? Sure - they might be Masons, but does that control what they do any more than the fact that they wear trousers? How
many of those guys are Christian? Why do you not bang on at them for their Christian masters? Your logic is falling apart - you clearly have some
sort of an axe to grind against Freemasonry, yet you're struggling for a way to convey your anger.
Freemasonry is not a secret society. It is a society with secrets. The handshakes, etc., all must be kept secret, as that's how they work. Telling
everyone how to spot a Mason (regardless of whether it's used frequently or not) defies the point of having the greetings in the first place. When
you were a kid and had a club house with a password, did you write it on the front door, or did you keep it secret? If you did, WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO
TAKE OVER THE WORLD WITH YOUR CLUB-HOUSE MASTERS??? OH THE HUMANITY!
Seriously, kiddies, find another boogey man to be scared of, and stop picking on people who do no harm and actually try to help society. It'd be
like picking on the Amish for barn-raising or the Salvation Army for wanting money for poor people. It's ridiculous. I can see how you got this
misguided - you read about something you don't know about, and ascribed all kinds of motives. You set out wanting there to be something to be
outraged about, and Freemasonry, with its (somewhat anachronistic) secrets, fitted your bill exactly.
