I think I'll be very interested to hear more from the actual Masons we have at ATS, if one decides to chime in here.
I'm really curious on this myself. I learned far too late in life to matter, my Grandfather had reached the top of that world as a Mason. He was just
so absolute about isolating that part of his life in general (At least from me), I first learned of it when the Masons arrived at his Funeral to
conduct their special part of the services.
I can say he was about as racist as anyone you'd want to encounter ..but in a passive way. I mean, I never heard a slur or bad sentiment cross his
lips ...but I also never saw him work with, socialize with or be in the same room with non-whites if he could help it.
Then again...He almost disowned my Father when learning he was marrying a nice Catholic girl. lol... different people ..different generation entirely
I suppose. I'm curious how much of his passive self-segregation attitude may have dovetailed with his life spent in the Masons...if any.
