1. What did we do in our past that you find wrong? I'm not a mind reader and I will not try to play these vague, generalities game with you. If
we're committed a crime, name the crime and the specifics surrounding it. Don't play the "you know what I'm talking about" game either, I'm not
a mind reader and I wanna know what event in history you think Masonry is involved with.
2. We expel members who we find to have broken their Oaths as Masons as well as any un-Masonic conduct that may result from civil crimes/infractions.
I have seen in the last few years several Masons get kicked out when they had been found guilty of a felony. As I said before, we do denounce and act
upon those members who tarnish the fraternity by their bad actions. If you know of prostitutes at Lodge parties then gather some evidence and turn
3. No. I could care less what the zealous anti-Masons want. Secrecy/privacy is something I hold sacred, as all free men should. What occurs on my
private property is none of your business. Your right to know ends at my right to privacy.
4. I truly love my Fraternity and see of no just reason why I shouldn't. There is no conditioning or coercion to stay against your will. One may
leave at any time and doesn't need your help to leave. When I was Worshipful Master of my Lodge, I signed several demit slips for those who wished
to withdraw, for whatever their reason, from the fraternity.
Well, I can't speak for how the world is, but in America, I have rights and anti-Masons can bitch all they want and can do nothing about it. If
you're speaking of forceful attacks on us, I say bring it. For the most part, the only confrontation from anti-Masons has come in the form of
vandalism of our property...cowards.

The Bohemian Grove is not a Masonic organization nor do they hold authority over us, and vice versa. I asked a simple question, one which would back
up your claims. Is it so hard for you to answer the question?
Who? For the love of God, who!? You say we've been infiltrated, but you won't name anyone. Why is that? Is it just easier for you to make
generalized, vague accusations?
One, I can make statements like I have when you provide nothing supportive of your point. Why are we held to a standard you don't hold yourself
In the Scottish Rite, there are no more degrees above the 33rd. That is just fact. Nothing more to be said.
