I see. Since you've been so candid may I restate my original questions on this thread to you?
Does your initiation require you to be nude before other masters?
Is there any homoerotic anything going on there?

Do you want me to be honest? Or give into your conspiracy?

The answer is NO. No one is ever nude during ANY Masonic ceremony or ritual.

Edit: This also goes for homoerotic hazing.

Thank you, it is not my conspiracy, more like a rumor that I wanted dispelled for my own peace of mind, so that I could petition for entry into my local lodge free from any unpleasant "surprises".

???

Freemasonry is an institution of men who are focused on charitable work for their community. Its also an organization to assist in raising good men to support their communities now and in the future.

Now that I am accepted as a Master Mason of the Brotherhood... I really would like to know how many individuals on this forum have considered petitioning for initiation and membership into Freemasonry. Feel free to express your reservations and/or interests and I will certainly share my reasonings for joining.

Take care
C.


I applied once. They said they'd get back to me in the fall and they never did.


I didn't want to push it so I left it alone.

Congratulations to you for being a Master Mason in the Blue lodge. Hope you enjoyed your lesson on Death and resurrection. Unfortunately I don't have any questions for you now as you will notice that nothing much happens in the blue lodge and that its just an outside layer protecting something else and also they must have told you that they lost their secret....

I will certainly have a lot of questions for you when you join the supreme council.

Oh great. Another "Ask-Me-Anything" thread. Which will lead to no where.

Why is this always happening.

Agreed...I've been a Master Mason for almost 25 years, but haven't been active in the lodge for the last year or so. Our lodge does not recruit potential members.

My father was a mason and that was the main reason I petitioned to join.

In my understanding, as you progress through different levels you might obtain a little more knowledge about the brotherhood. As stated earlier, you really start gaining information as you reach the higher levels of the Scottish Rites. That's the way I understand it, but I'm not advanced enough to know for sure.

My father-in-law reached the 8th level of the Scottish Rites before deciding to stop trying to advance. He also stopped attending the Rites' meetings and came back to our local Masonic Lodge. I asked him the reason and he just said he didn't want to talk about it. I left it at that...

These "ask me" threads are a pathetic waste of time.

I"m a Mason
I'm an Elite
I'm a Time Traveler
I'm a Witch
I'm a Starchild

"Ask me any questions".

Why don't you just come right out and tell us everthing you know? The bait and get nowhere act is getting quite old.

P.S. Oh yea, I'm a thread killer. Please ask me anything.

Yes, a belief in a Supreme Being is necessary for becoming a Mason in the United States and most other countries. The individuals particular religion is never asked, only a belief in Diety.

What is the wind velocity of a coconut-laden swallow? African, of course.

Several years ago, a friend of mine was interested in petitioning our local lodge, but was hesitant. His reason??? Quote: "I heard you have to get naked and ride a goat around blindfolded in the yard."

I almost busted a gut from laughing so hard!

EDIT: The goat wasn't to be blindfolded, just the candidate.

24 mph assuming the swallow is unencumbered. Hope that helps.
