Hey there! I would just like to point out:
"This forum is for the discussion and speculation of conspiracy theories, scandals, secrets, cover-ups and related historical events involving secret
societies and related groups. PARTICIPANTS MUST BE AWARE THIS FORUM IS UNDER RENEWED, VERY-CLOSE STAFF SCRUTINY. Discussion topics and follow-up
responses in this forum will likely tend to lean in favor of conspiracies, scandals, and cover-ups. Members who would seek to refute such theories
should be mindful of AboveTopSecret.com's tradition of focusing on conspiracy theory, cover-ups, and scandals."
I should say there might be a reason you guys keep seeing the same stories and theories over and over! I hope you will bear with me as I relate
conspiracy theories and such on this board, no matter how banal they may seem to someone such as yourself.
Much love to you and the rest, I know that you are all honest men who help add to the ATS discussion pool. I may be able to contribute a relevant
article from masonicworld.com The Benefits of Masonic
There are actually some real gems in there:
A benefit may be considered as anything which is helpful, profitable, favorable, and advantageous to a person. A benefit may take many forms such
as improving a person in some way, promoting his happiness, raising his status socially, increasing his personal contacts with others, or assisting
him in any number of other ways. In a general way the benefits of Masonic membership are both tangible and intangible.
The word “charity” is used in the Craft in its broadest sense.
Non-members are aware of the spirit of friendship that exists between members of the Craft. The question is sometimes asked out of curiosity
whether Masons are required to patronize other Masons in their business transactions. Every Mason knows that there is no such rule of the Craft. But
we must recognize that when one is considering entering into a business or professional relationship he is more likely to select someone that he knows
Undoubtfully an interesting article, no? I hope that this helped the OP determine the answer to his question from a reputable source.
