Except your own article says there was no proof of such favoritism taking place within the courts. Just because you want to tattoo serial numbers on all the Jews because you're afraid of them doesn't mean they're conspiring to get you. Oh wait, substitute "register" for "tattoo" and "Freemasons" for "Jews". There. My mistake. Sorry for the typo.

It is things like this described in the following article which give those slithering Mason's as you put it massive room to play god with other peoples lives. So tell me this, if you know there is wrong and corruption in you society why dont you remove it. Unlike the real world you can very easily..
Justice for all? or Just Mason's
If nothing underhand is happening then why the requirement for secrecy?
So when a judge rolls over a non Mason in favor of a brother and flies in the face of justice, can you explain how that is better for mankind? And don't say it doesn't go on because I personally know it does! Alot!
Sorry your relationship with your elders is so strained. Is it because they are Masons that you think they're buffoons? Or do you have other issues with them for other reasons? I'm guessing that best friend who joined also became instantly evil, changed his life radically and now eats babies for breakfast?

My Grandfather and my father are 33rd degree Masons and after reading material on the internet and from a book "exposing" the lodge, I have never had an inkling to join even though one of my best friends did.
Shows you how well you know that oath... We "agree to be a peaceful subject, and cheerfully to conform to the laws of the country in which you reside". Felons do not make good Masons. Criminal Masons brought before a Masonic judge would probably get a harsher penalty because they have violated their oath by being bad citizens.

Excuess me?!? It's called a conflict of interest, if your not seeing it then maybe the following petition that went to the Scottish Parliament will make it clearer for you. Now either you take your oath as sacred, or its a pile of the steaming stuff so which is it?
What, and asking an arbitrary subclass of people to register their identities with the government isn't offensive? What good is it for the judges to register their membership if you don't also ask EVERY SINGLE PERSON who appears before that judge? Every barrister, lawyer, bailiff, witness, accuser, defendant. Sounds like a lot of work to ask that question of every person who walks in the courtroom. Better to just brand all the Masons or force them by law to wear a colored scrap of cloth pinned to the outside of their clothes, no?
So rather than in a round about way of accussing me of being a Nazi, answer my original question please. (That was offensive by the way)
Why should it? Most of the charity money we raise goes to families of non-Masons...
"A Masons wife and child shall be treated as ones own always by all Brothers. We as Masons should never have doubts about this. We all carry the knowledge that in a time of crisis that a Brother can be counted on to protect and give aid to our loved ones."
Now answer me this, does that come at a cost to a non Mason?

I was refering to masonic recognitions, grips and words. Nothing that I would reveal to a non mason.
I am having problems with my lodge but no mason would ever reveal the grips or words of a master mason.
