the powerful jobs in the world.....Blair,Bush,Clinton and majority of political world are masons.
Neither Bush nor Clinton were Masons. Clinton was a member of DeMolay, the youth organization, but did not continue on into the adult side of the
fraternity. The last U.S. President that was a Mason was Gerald Ford. Sorry to disappoint you.
Originally posted by infiniteonly white male can join, every heard the term "a group of white men rule the world" its likely to be
true. You have to be "invited" by a mason so you can join cause the masons come for you not you go to them.
Again, not true. Masonry is open to people of all races, creeds, and colors. There was a time in our history when this was true and blacks were
excluded, which led to the development of Prince Hall Masonry, however those days are gone. While only men may become masons, there is a sister
organization called the Order of the Eastern Star for women. In addition, there are several irregular masonic bodies (co-masonry, memphis-misriam,
etc.) that will initiate women. Also untrue is the statement that you are invited to join. The fact is, masons are not supposed to solicit
membership, you must ask to join. Haven't you ever seen the 2B1 Ask 1 stickers?

If they are not a secret seocity, why do they make you take an oath of secrecy, with the threat of burrying your tounge at a sacred spot somewhere on
the east coast?
If they are not a secret seocity, why don't you get me some pictures of the inside of there ritual rooms?
Masons built and run the country.
p.s. Donations are tax wright-offs
1) It's called respecting an individual's privacy, though most individuals will gladly proclaim their membership.
2)Oath of secrecy is called tradition. The second part of your statement is innaccurate. Want to see our ritual? Go to your local Barnes & Noble
and pick up a copy.
3)Pictures you say? Gladly:
Yes, masons did help to build this country, and we are very proud of that. Are we still running the country, not by a long shot. Yes, contributions
are tax deductible, what is your point?
