American Masons where never punished, persecuted or treated as bad as European Masons..
The result being European Masons kept much of their "secrecy" because it was necessary. Many lodges in the UK and Ireland are small, hidden away in unlikely spots. Like above pubs. From my understanding they don't wear rings or anything like that like we do in America (which we where rings, tattoos and plaster our cars with symbols .. real secret society lol)
Nothing sinister.. imo it's just a cultural difference.
