In response to something i see happening a lot on these threads. EVERYONE is entitled to their own opinion on ANY subject matter...even freemasonry.
But if you are going to form an opinion on something as common as the masons, make it just that..an opinion. If you are not a mason, you cannot
assume to know everything about the organization just because you have read hours of "info" on the internet, or have friends or family that "told"
you things that might be false. They could be disgruntled or unhappy for some reason. Either way, if you havent experienced it, there is no way to
speak "truth" on it.
Now, for the folks that will say "Well, my father (brother, best friend, cousin, uncles, etc.) are masons and they said that....", this strikes me
as odd because a mason wont just divulge all this "knowledge" to you just for the sake of it. Plus, there are things we like to call "irregular"
and "clandestine" lodges, meaning that they are not recognized by Mainstream or Prince Hall for specific reasons. So, if you are speaking to a
gentleman from an Irregular lodge, you could be receiving misinterpreted information. Just some food for thought.
