Now I do agree that not all Masons are evil but some certainly are and have tainted the reputation of the order forever. However I am having trouble believing that a 32nd degree Freemason would give an interview.
I find this very unlikely since Freemasons of that stature would not disclose the fact that they are a Freemason, and even if they did, they certainly would not disclose any information regarding the brotherhood.
Also please state who this person is since level 32 of Freemasonry indicates that it would almost certainly be someone very powerful and in the political/economic/financial public eye; hell the next, and highest level includes FDR, Blair and Bush to name a few; only the reigning Monarch of England is higher.
Or perhaps some Freemasonic misinformation.

I thought the Bush's weren't Masons.
And I could've sworn that the Skull & Bones were at serious odds with the Masons, some kind of fraternity vs. fraternity rumble.

Take your BS somewhere else. Why would you put retreat in quotes if you are supposed to be such a high ranking member? "Some retreat thing, I don't know much about it." Well you should, unless you are lying, which I guarantee you are. GO AWAY.
Yeah, we try to do a few two-day reunions in my valley, usually starting Friday night and covering the 4th through 14th degree if we can (often not getting out until around 10pm), and then early the next morning for a solid 12-hour day to cover the rest. We'll also try to do one-day versions once or twice a year in some of the smaller nearby towns where it wouldn't be as convenient for their brethren to come into the city.

It is actually called a reunion in my jurisdiction and each Scottish Rite Valley (or local group) has these on a fairly regular basis. You attend several of the mandatory degrees/plays and receive your 32nd degree in usually one day. Some may have you attend on a Saturday and Sunday but I have not seen this in my home state.
You're resurrecting an old thread, and asking a response of a member who hasn't logged in here in 9 months. Perhaps your question would be better asked in another thread.

Well, that is great! If you are speaking of the truth, happy to meet ya. My great grand-father was a Freemason actually! And I always wondered what it is like in the Freemasons. Can you answer a few questions regarding to the Group?
I will start with one question,
What are the usual events that take place in the Freemasons?
