What condescension? Where have any of us, or any Masonic body, said we are better than non-Masons? Can you give examples? In fact, I can say I can
give examples of the condescension and, very much, fascist ideas that non-Masons explore in regards to dealing with Freemasonry. Since the time I
joined this site, I've been called every name under the book and said that since I'm not a Freemason I am not entitled to the freedoms, liberties,
and privileges of the average man. Have us ATS Masons mocked you anti-Masons? Sure have, it's easy to do with the amount of crap (often recycled
hoaxes) relentlessly spewed at us.
If you have done any research then post the sources and sites you're pulling from. I'm not one to just take your word at face value, particularly
when what you've said I know is wrong.
The only enemies of Freemasonry are: ignorance, fanaticism, and tyranny. We are often used as the scapegoat for those three previously named.
I do post my research and try to sway the rational minds that may view the thread, but I'm not going out of my way to force a mind who has it stuck
in the sand.
Do the Hells Angels give as much as us? What Mason has done what the HA have? What crimes is Freemasonry guilty of?
What is logical about your accusations? You say we're guilty of crime, but don't say what the crime is. It is you to provide the charges as well
as providing the proof. Your post is filled with invalid and unsound arguments; ie illogical - if you've taken even the most basic course on logic.
Non sequitur arguments don't prove anything. I again, ask you to please provide evidence.
