For anyone who still thinks that Hope4Me is genuine, I would ask you to read her first post where she states that she is just learning about freemasonry. A couple of posts later we have "her" quoting Mackay and Gnostisism like a pro. This is a typical MrNecros/Freemason troll tactic.

As freemasonry accepts men of all faiths, it would have also accepted those with polygamous beliefs - and it still does. Remember, Freemasonry is open to those who may have a different moral belief concerning sex/marriage/relationships from the majority.
I personally know of a freemason who has recently married another freemason's daughter.
Is that why your here finding out about his orginization? Instead of believing in him, and believing him? If thats abiding love, I guess I'm glad I don't have it.
I am saying that I am trying to figure out just what I can really believe......My husband and I are not like that. I'd say we are one of the few lucky couples in this world that have a genuine, abiding love for each other.
And what Masons would that be? The ones that think your someone that has repeatedly attacked them? Take a step back, look at the situation. This women comes to a generic secret societies webforum, posts a post that even to us non masons seems rediculious. You don't see why people would question 1. why would you come here to fix your marrage, 2. the validity of your claims, since we've seen multi people do this before. 3. you say repeatedly that you don't dislike masons, but almost evey post is riddled with negitive outlooks on them.
aside from those few Masons who obviously don't take their Masonic duties serious about being a person of good morals and good character
Well you say your a parent, so I use kids as an example, since I have 2 of my own. If you want to find out why you child thinks, or acts a certain way, you wouldn't come out and attack, or go on the offensive would you? No, I hope not, cause all you will get is a wall of defence. How about we ask what they think or feel, and if you do have a situation (alla the ritual verses you don't like) bring that situation up, and ask what it means. Not, you did this one time and it was wrong and I hate it, attack attack attack, but please explain it to me, without getting upset or offended, oh and please don't feel attacked.
I don't know what else to do to show that I am very sincere.

I have to disagree with the above statement, at least to a degree. Polygamy has never been acceptable in Freemasonry. ]

Once again, why is it so hard to believe that I am not either that Patty person or now this new guy I'm accused of being?

OK, I know I shouldn't do this, but...
DTOM, just to let you know, there's a Big Masonic Secret that the Eastern Star has been hiding for years.
Want to hear it?
OK, it's like this:
Everybody's related to a Mason, somehow.
Remember, the Mason to whom you're related doesn't actually have to be alive.
So, if at any point in the history of Humankind, someone to whom you are related received even their first degree, you can join the Star.

Is that true? I had no idea. My greatgrandfather was a very high degree Mason (can't remember wich) but his picture is on the wall in the lodge in Indiannapolis (so I'm told by my mother) and my greatgrandmother was an Eastern Star. I have been so curious about this for so many years and had no idea that there might be an opportunity for me to join.

I did go and look at some of the other posts on this site and I found one from an Ely? I was startled because it started out quite similar to mine. Perhaps that was who I was being Identified as?
