OP, this summary isn't too far off base but don't take the word of this single source as absolute.
for many years, the Masons have endured a rather negative and dark public perception.
if you read some of the Founders writings, you'll find that even they carried great suspicions about the Masons, in their day.
all these years later and they (Masons) haven't done a whole lot to impove their public image.
perhaps, as a secret society
, they never will but don't hope to garner much information about the inner-workings of that which is
you might find some additional insight from this link ... www.almenahshriners.org...
... about the origins of the Shriners ...
and the direct attempt to influence public perception and growth within the American Masonic ranks through greater philanthropy and less ritualism.
more importantly, throughout the 20th century, the Masons have grown in numbers and popularity regardless of their secrets
and i personally,
find this to be very dangerous.
many members today, have no clue about the Masonic true origins (they still argue the points amongst themselves today), very few are aware of the true
intent of the Fraternity and centuries of workings leading them there.

I debunk them because they are wrong.
ahahahahahaha, now that's rich ... dude, the "because i said so" form of debunking doesn't
work too well around here.
if you're gonna "debunk" the OP, what sources
are you offering ??
fyi, many crap sources
contain a few jems along the way
rather attack the source, can you prove the information wrong ??
or at least provide a reference other than, cause i say so ??
I've offered you and other members the opportunity to ask me specific questions or concerns you have about Freemasonry with no
are you kidding ?? not only have i never seen such a thread (haven't looked for one either), but, are you joking or what ??
anyone who knows anything about FM is well aware you are being facetious at best.
no living Mason, worth his title, is going to share secrets
of which they've been sworn to keep
, but you keep thinking that'll
So now geographic locations in relation to court houses are a Masonic conspiracy?
it's certainly not a new one. is this new for you ??
the Masonic cornerstone ceremonies were done on a lot of public buildings in the earlier years of the United States.
(ceremonies) were done AT
rather on (unless you're sure of that?)
and, those ceremonies were supposedly
held there because they (Masons) built them with their bare hands.
Aren't we trying to stay on topic here, OP?
since you're not contributing to it or validly debunking it, why are you nitpicking at
And once again I want to point out that you have flatly refused to ask any questions, and continue to make wild assumptions.
do you really want questions ??
are you really offering to expose that which you've been supposedly
sworn to keep ??
