I don't know. Maybe because there is a bunch of people that are talking about a bunch of stuff...whatever it may be.... and they are called Masons?

Heh, not that that is anything significant.... I'd rather go loiter in front of the dungeons and dragons club in a barbarian costume, I think that'd be more entertaining.

I don't believe you.

A mason does not need a handshake or password to recognize another mason.

He would never have asked for either outside of lodge.

Stop lying - you'll always be caught out.

LOL, I really hope you didn't take me seriously! I was being facetious about the password and handshake business.. (like in being some type of Secret Squirrel club) He really is a 33rd degree Mason though. .
Lighten up, and don't take things so seriously.

Call them masons, devil worshipers, or whatever, any organized group opposed to the rule of God is dangerous


Better put a smiley there kiddo, from my seat you're doing more work against God than these folks.
No smiley makes it seem like you're being serious, and I don't like it when people insult folks I respect.

Take a look at the last few htreads here, no wonder he's getting touchy. Getting insulted will do that.

Actually that's a crock. They will not tell you to leave. All you need is a bag of M&Ms and say you purchased from their store. Receipt isn't needed either, I've been bothered at multiple stores loitering, and I supplied the fact I had purchased something from them, or not.

I think you're allowed to loiter for up to an hour after purchasing something from a store.

Also... Nice job partner. Heh, I'd of wen't with you with a camera and stayed for the cop to come.


The definition of loitering is when you stand outside someones own property and have no business being there. Buying something from Walmart and standing outside is NOT loitering, which is not what the OP is. Buying nothing and standing outside of Walmart IS loitering, which is correct parallel examples of what the OP did do. In this case there is nothing buy, but unless he has business in the lodge hanging around the gate is loitering.

Yeah, going up and using a camera to prove those evil masons are out to get you is really going to work
It would have been funny. I'd take out a camera and film the guy with the camera.

Laugh all you want...I had a very bad experience with one of the old mason guards. I had car trouble on the city loop by the big masons hall, and when I started to walk up towards the hall, this old very unfriendly man came rushing towards me and said get the hell off this property. I explained I was having car trouble, and he said so? They are really very. very nice when you finally get to know them I'm sure.

Here's a challenge:

Organize a photo of yourself in a Masonic Lodge sitting on a goat.

I can just imagine the topics that would arise here an ATS using the photo as "proof" of something!

I commend you on having the nads. Many police are masons, and they don't care about your rights. You did the right thing to get away fast, or possibly it was a short stay, er or long, in the local clink with the mason jail guards torturing you.


TH3ON3 is right you should watch your step around the masons. There are many powerful people who are masons. Business leaders, Prominent Politicians, Military leaders. They all help each other to be more successful and keep unbelievers out of thier business. They won't think twice about sqaushing you like a bug.

Anyway...

Yes, all Masons are definitely evil, Satanic, and Cops, because of a wrinkled old SourPuss.
It wasn't polite, but you were on private property. He was well within his rights to toss you out.

Edit:
Now ar we going to have to send a person from ATS to apologize for the weird guy handing outside the lodge who had ATS written on... everything?

Masonic Lodges are private property. you have no reason to loiter around the lodge if you have no business with the lodge. why didn't you ask him questions about freemasonry and the lodge instead of making a fool of yourself? Me personally if i saw a guy outside the lodge i would of course go see what he was doing, AND if he started to ask me questions about Freemasonry and the lodge etc... i would have invited him to show him the lodge and answered his questions.

We have no secrets except modes of recognition which you can mostly find on the internetz along with (some) books that have been written and so forth. i don't understand why you think its a dangerous place either. i don't understand what makes a masonic lodge/hall a dangerous place? pelase enlighten me....was there a lava-filled mote around the lodge or what?

I didn't say it was dangerous - that was your interpretation of it. Dangerous to me is breaking into the Skull and Bones hidey hole - this is just fun.

I did ask him questions and he got annoyed with me. He proved to be a narrow minded old fool living in the past. I guess that is a trait from what I have seen in this tread and others.

I did not make a fool of myself - all you Mason who have crept out of the woodwork have done that.

What I did was a light hearted prank with tongue firmly in cheek.

What you Mason have done in this thread is shown how intolerable you are, how bigoted you are, what misogynists you are, and how dim witted some of you are resorting to name-calling.

Come on guys, time to get out of the sand box methinks

Uh huh? And would you care to share the quality of questions you were asking?

Hookay. I can guess what sort of path they took.

Well, if the questions were along the lines of paedophilia, Satan worship, Masonic gods, et al. I wouldn't have given you the time of day either. If they weren't but were sane questions and you still got that response, then I can't begin to guess what the gentleman's issue was.

Matter of opinion. Your mode of dress might belie that on your part.

And your intent would have been clear to the rest of us mere mortals.......how exactly?

Long out of the sand box. You? Not so much so from what I've seen.

Look, if I saw someone sitting in ATS gear in front of my lodge, I would laugh and go over and ask them what was up. If they said, in a defensive and argumentative tone, that they were just "exercising their civil rights" then I would guffaw and invite them in for a tour of our building. I might even invite them to join my lodge for our dinner as my guest. But I know ATS and know most (but not all) of the people on here are reasonably harmless.

If I didn't know ATS, I might think such a person was likely to become a nuisance and tell them to clear out.

This kind of thing may seem funny at first, but most Freemasons have a deep appreciation for the history of their fraternity and are well aware that there are many crackpots out there who object to the fraternity and wish harm to its members. History is filled with examples -- from Hitler, to Stalin, to military juntas in South America -- that persecuted Freemasons.

And every member has probably run into someone who made them uncomfortable with a crazy rant about Freemasons and some conspiracy theory. You know, some conspiracy nuts are -- well, just nuts.

Go loiter outside a synagogue with a t-shirt promoting the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and see how long it is before someone asks you to leave. It isn't an exact analogy, I admit -- but there is a certain distasteful flavor to this kind of behavior.

As a young man, I lived in the South and it was there that I learned the best word to describe how I see this behavior: it was tacky.

Next time, take your photos and when the guy comes out and asks what you are doing, introduce yourself and say you are just taking some photos outside the building because you belong to a website where Freemasonry is discussed. Ask if they ever give tours of the building. Make it clear you don't want to be in the way or cause any harm to the property or people. Smile. Be friendly. Don't be defensive and get all up on high horse about your civil rights -- that just makes people figure you're out to be a troublemaker in any context.

Heck, you might get a free dinner out of the deal. And at *my* Lodge last month, if I recall correctly, that was roast beef with all the trimmings and sides. And good conversation, too.

If you come to my Masonic lodge I will invite you in, show you around, share a cup of coffee and talk about anything you want.

If you come and sit outside like some sort of dorky protester, then yes I will call the police.

Masons are people, and masonic lodges are property. What did you expect?

We had a dinner at my lodge last week to honor a member who received the order of the Purple Cross.

Fortunately it was catered and not prepared by us. It was roast beef as well and it was AMAZING.

I would have been happy to bring along a guest, even if they were in ATS gear.

This most likely rank as one of the most ludicrous things I have ever read. Do you know the origins of the Masons? Do you know what they stand for? Ignorance. Pure Ignorance.

since i am at school. the most dangerous position for me is to be at the top floor at the school during interval when the supervisors teacher and rarely the principle, are searching for you while ur hiding. make a mistake and they suspend ya(as in get caught, even showing your face) so having ur whole class with you is one way to get busted, splitting up and hiding in plain site is the worst way. the best way is go onto the roof and stay if they see you from far away. thats the most dangerous place for me...
