Ok, for all of you Masonic Conspiracy nuts. I must say, you were right!! I'm a Mason, and I heard something in a Lodge last night that blew my mind,
so this morning I looked it up, and apparently it is correct!
So, here is the big Conspiracy.....
Masons, and there appendent bodies contribute close to $5 million per day to Charity work nationwide! This includes things like the
cutting edge heart chemistry research and the Shriner's Hospitals
But, it doesn't stop with just a couple of big ones. It also includes Many Others
such as the
increasing children cancer survival rates from 10% to 70% at a research center in Minnesota. It includes schools for young women. It includes
sponsoring organ donation. It includes hearing devices for kids.
But, it doesn't stop there either. Not even close. Each little sub-group and sub-sub-group of Masonry has their own pet charities. Things like the
Royal Arch Research Philanthropy
that is currently donating funds to Univ. or Connecticut and organizations
like Autism Speaks. Then there is Cryptic Masonic Medical Research
.... scary name, but not when you realize they are
funding the Indiana Center for Vascular Biology and Medicine (ICVBM), which is located at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis,
So, is it all Medical Research and Hospitals? NO!!
Lodge community and family relationship
Some areas are seeking out ways to better connect with families and communities and help in ways specific to each community.
Here's a Lodge funding Special Olympics
and Community Learning Centers.
Here in my town alone, Mason's help to organize and fund Springtime Tallahassee
community event and parade, plus the Scottish Highland Games
, plus the
Mother's Day 5k
So, $5M per day from Masonic interests and endeavors, is it all about the money? NO!!
What else do Mason's do?
Just one Shrine Temple
What about Driving kids and their families to the hospitals? Fundraising for crime victims? Replacing Christmas Presents for robbery victims?
Participating in Church events? Escorting Fallen Police Officers? Volunteering in Retirement Homes? Helping with Hospice Care? Visiting folks in
the Hospitals and just sitting and talking? Conducting Clown Schools, and providing Clown Services free of charge?
What about the personal things each and every Mason does on their own time, as a person, but also as a good and upright Mason? Things like visiting
their homebound brethren? Things like pitching in to remodel someone's home? Things like taking an acquaintance into one's own home when they fall
on hard times?
I have personally seen every one of these things done right here in my own town. The $5M per day number was shocking to me last night. Shocking in a
GREAT WAY, but still shocking, but now that I think about it, the $5M per day is probably small in comparison to what
2 million US Masons
do on a daily basis, voluntarily, by their own will and accord, as part of
their daily duties, and they never consider it as charity. They just consider it part of their lives without giving it a second thought.
This Masonic Conspiracy thing is larger, and more rampant than even I imagined, and Thank God that it is!!
