Nice seabag, seems pretty cut and dry to me too
. It's not like I'm protesting in front of a tiled lodge or anything. I'm keeping the discussion
in its proper place. Thanks, as well, for helping me unravel this tangled knot of deceit one thread at a time.
I have some interesting thoughts on some of the machinations of masonry. Take the checkerboard tile. To me it represents how they are used like pawns
by the ultra-powerful elite whose few families have owned vast portions of the globe for a very long time. Masons are given "tasks" to fulfill.
These are received by sometimes anonymous phone calls or by someone in their lodge, or by a message written in code.
They are told that by being "raised" they are better people than those who have not, and that they are part of the advancement of human evolution.
African Americans have historically been banned from freemasonry. Albert Pike was the head of Scottish Rite masonry as well as the founder of the Ku
And no, that cross they burn is not a 't' for tolerance.
There are now "black only" mason lodges called Prince Hall lodges. To this day, PH masons are not allowed in other lodges, but a SR mason can enter
a PH lodge at any time.
Masonic Bigotry in Georgia
I fought it in my lodge. I've had Masons from the South tell me my lodge was destroying the Craft by allowing black men to join. I've seen a Prince
Hall Grand Master shut down visitations with mainstream lodges because my lodge "stole" black candidates he felt his Grand Lodge "owned." I've
had a Georgia Mason who was a cop jab me in the chest and tell me in no uncertain terms that a black man could not be a Mason, period.
When they greet each other they say they are "on the level". If they were to greet a non mason, immediately they put themselves on a "higher
level". Even on these forums just today a few of us non masons were referred to as "tiny minds".
