Whence came you?

I firmly believe there is an active cult that recruits masons and other members of Mystery Schools who may not be the brightest bulbs in the lighthouse. They seem to take them and feed them the same lies. It almost has to be this way since the lies are always the same. They claim to be part of some mysterious (inner circle) but somehow found the light, and cannot quite remember any details of the (inner circle).

Why not be original. If you are bound and determined to make stuff up, why not be original? Make some fantastic stories of demon possession, group sex, altar sacrifices. Any dumbass can regurgitate the same BS over, and over, and over again. Don't be that guy.

Ahhh yeah none of that ritual matters.

Go burn all that for me, will you?

So Freemasonry is the sole heir of true ritual initiation? All others are flawed systems?

What if they're all flawed?

Freemasonry is definitely NOT enlightenment.

And If I were you, I wouldn't trust a Christian Freemason at all, because Jesus said, "do not make any oaths".

Curiosity killed the cat.

It also killed my soul a few times.

You can't go wrong with simple breath meditation.

Unfounded suspicion breeds paranoia; paranoia leads to fear; and fear will lead people to eventual acts of hatred, ignorance, aggression, and tyranny. You poor soul.

Ofcause the very principles your society is based on. You love and feed off this kind of stuff.

Freemasonry is based firstly on Truth, but also charity, love, justice, moderation, courage, prudence, equality, moral rectitude, and liberty.

There has actually been no proof that Freemasons discriminate or are guilty of nepotism. That is just an unfounded accusation.

This view is supported by first hand experience. Your pessimistic view isn't really supported by fact.

You should probably look at rewording that sentence since its not written well, but regardless, from the looks of it, I see hearsay popping up. Also, what does race have to do with anything?

And to do so without proof is wrong. But don't let facts or lack there of get in the way of a good lie story.

Had I been looking for enlightenment, Id have gone to India, not to a masonic lodge. I joined freemasonry so that I could gain money, power, sex and recognition. What I found instead was friendship, integrity, loyalty and character.
