Sorry to say but your title is misleading - it's called a Hero
Lodge (whatever that is). It clearly states that "we don't have
alot of masons as members - but our mason members do a lot".

Beaufort is a small, poor, backwater town in S.C., I've been there
several times and this looks more like a christian organization
than anything.

I'm afraid the greatest evil lurking in this building is the
month-old potato salad in the back of the fridge.

You reptilians are all the same. It's all about money and child sacrifices with you. When will you see there is more to life than just the underworld?

Just to nitpick a bit, the Lodge in the OP is in Beaufort (pronounced 'Bo-fort'), NC. It is not in Beaufort (pronounced 'Buford'), SC.

You are correct, and Beaufort NC is a cool little town. It is on the coast and attracts well off retirees as well as the local residents. It has a very quaint feel to it, and it has not been commercialized as other towns have been. It's a lot like Southport in that regard.

BTW, Viking, are you interested in moving again? I hear it's a fun way to spend your off time.

I like Beaufort, NC as well.

I'm not saying it's good, bad, or indifferent. I'm just saying OES's symbols have Christian meanings.


The crown in the cross is a blasphemous symbol

Yep, and mentioning "women," "old ladies," and kids who think it's cool is also a fallacy of distribution.


You will need to explain that one.

You see, I know people who are in the Eastern Star, I know a little about some of their symbols. But I have no idea what you just said.


By saying that there are women, you are saying that women are better than men, or that's it's a way to make women feel empowered, which is all a bunch of emotional fluff.

I realize you have not gotten past the "Eastern Star is bad, mkay", but it is made up of primarily women. It is a group like a sister to masonry. There must be a man present at meetings, and I don't know why, but it is an organization made up of primarily women. You should actually read a bit before you speak. It will make you seem more intelligent.

According to who? And how? Those would seem to be very emblematic of Jesus, King of Kings.

What does it matter that the OES is made up of women and old ladies? Actually, the more you describe it, the more it seems like some kind of a cult.

That cross is slanted, which is NOT emblematic of Jesus.

all you ever wanted to know about the Eastern Star

This is what I meant about doing a bit of reading before opening that pie hole.

In one depiction of the Crown and Cross. There are several that are straight up and down. According to whom, is the Crown and Cross not a symbol Jesus? You still didn't answer that.

That document says nothing about the cross being slanted.

Nice choice of words, btw.

For those who have been wondering what's the difference

Look at how rundown it is, and the kitchen looks rather unsanitary. Looks like these guys could use some "relief"

According to Albert Pike. And anyway, that is off-topic.

Why do you all think that Albert Pike is the expert on EVERYTHING Freemason. His writings pertains only to the Scottish Rite. If all the crosses are supposed to be slanted then what about this:

And as you were shown to be wrong again, that implies that the thread is off topic. And you seemed to freely participate in the last seven pages which also implies that you have no interest in any particular objective other than argument, where you have come armed with opinions, but I have yet to see any quoted and legitimate sources for your claims. I would say that I am feeding a troll, but now mods warn about that as we cant' call people out anymore without mod interference. But again, proof would be nice. Unless this post, which makes a cogent point is deemed to be inappropriate also. Anyway, we cant talk about that .So, any commonly agreed upon sources that you can quote?
