Yeah, no government should ever let its people meet as they will! Yeah, who needs the First and Fourth Amendment!? [/sarc]
Let's just forget history and that many (not all), but many of our Founders were Freemasons. Overlooking the Masonic influence, the US was founded
in secrecy. Let's also look at the fact that Freemasonry is just so secret everyone can find our buildings as we have them marked with our symbols
and we have webpages that list our addresses, as well as our meeting times.
masonry comes before your job meaning they can make the judge judge against the law.
Actually this is completely untrue and goes against a great deal explained in the ritual. Some believe Freemasonry exercises this extending control
into every aspect of our lives, and it doesn't. Hell, my old Battalion Commander in the Army was lower ranking than me in the Masons and it would be
a great Masonic offense to abuse my membership in such a way as you describe.
the risk of corruption is far too great.
Not really. There is just as much capability of corruption in the Rotary, Kiwanis, Elks, Lions Club, or any congregation. We do have our own internal
penal code where one could be kicked out for corrupt behavior.
most of them you meet personally are cool guys, but on the internet forums...are the worst shills.
Meh, I've been called worse things and plus "shill" seems to be the new buzz word for anti-Masons.
