I'm a Mason.
Ask me anything.
What's the correct blend of spices needed for the dish Skinner mentions in The Simpsons?
Why do i ALWAYS see the mason symbols on people's cars. See them with rings too.
Seemly average, nothing special people, having these.
Is it really that easy for the commoner to join?
>I dont wanna join a club that would accept people like me.
1. Membership in a Masonic Lodge is open to all men 21 years of age or older — regardless of race, color, or religion. Our membership requirements are very clear:
2. You must be of good character and reputation. ...
3. You must believe in a Supreme Being and the immortality of the soul.
I doubt you fit even 1 of these qualifications, OP
Masonic square and compasses on the left, pentagram on the right (not a Masonic Symbol at all). However, in some jurisdictions, women are forbidden to be Masons, and therefore this would be clandestine
What's you're lodges number and what has been your hardest task so far?
>mfw my granddad was a really high ranking Mason but I don't believe in 'The Grand Architect' so I can't join.
From what I've seen (not OP here), self-improvement, a sense of belonging, and comfort in the knowledge that your good works are helping make the world a better place.
Also, you get to wear costumes.
The start with the things that aren't secrets,m8.
Fuck you mason faggots I hope your weirdo lodges are burned down
does that actually work? I want be apart of the masons, my ex girlfriends grand father was like a high ranking individual within the group and she told me apparently they "put you through a test" by beating you sensless before youre able to join.
What are your thoughts OP?
Seriously Masons are fucking weirdos why would anyone want to be a dumb faggot with a gay ass mason bumber sticker?
Anyone who joins is a "master mason" within a month or two. It's actually pretty stupid and most people who enter eventually quit because they're a chiropractor and their wife is a christian that doesn't allow him to take part in things that are do not exclusively involve one single christian god
I got a bum deal, I joined both and it seems that both are a bunch of old guys trying to push ritual, ritual, ritual. Where's the fun? Definitely not in my local Shrine, they are pushing Roadrunners or "volunteer" to work when the Shrine circus is in town.
At least the Grotto tries to do fun activities.
You should, granted they have been degraded and refered to as the poor mans Shrine, but most of the social hierarchy in my local shrine is full of rich upstarts, old guys with money, or guys that's all about helping out with the hospitals. No activities for middle class guys like myself, that's why I joined Grotto.
There's a difference between secrecy and keeping things private. I don't think Masons are out to be a super secret cult; their buildings have logos on them, they had parades for crying out loud. But what they do behind closed doors is their business.
We have secrets for reasons. At first I was very skeptical about what was happening in a Lodge but decided to join because my dad was one and I was like why not. The secrets are there because if the whole world knew, they would lose their true meaning, and only as a Mason you can experience what they mean.
The whole world is a pyramid scheme
Basically managers above you and so forth , the people below are what keeps the whole thing going.
I'm not op but I have to voice my dissatisfaction on the whole fake world we live in. Even if I suggest people to get back to some reality not based in illusion or delusion I get flamed by people so I just keep my observations to my self.
This was my problem.
I was asked to join a lodge, and they were hoping I would become a member... And I did like the idea, but I don't believe in a supreme being or the immortality of the "soul" - so I just couldn't go through with it.
seriously why not a join a golf club instead? its
-you make better connecitons
-you dont have to do any gay quasi-religious rituals
-you dont have to spend your life running around after people that have been in slightly longer than you
-golf clubs have bars and can actually organise a piss up
-you get exercise and a nice game of golf
I doubt it's cheaper.
The connections don't have the same bonds of fraternity that Masonry has.
the rituals are rich in symbolic meaning, helping one become a better man.
I run after no one, I'm my own person.
we don't need a bar to make ourselves better.
golf is nice!
So basically for /b's edification
When a mason is asked for their grandmother or mothers age they have to tel the person asking their lodge number
Is cracker didn't want to give up his lodge number for fear of dox ,, think he said 111
Bulshit mason fag
You're a little late to the party.
in the hearts an minds of many molested abo kids it does :)
ive noticed yous use star symbols/ okay sign with hand/ eye n pyramid and a lot more, also pushing some sort of gay agenda in movies/tv shows to program the masses i really really hate you guys n cant wait till you meet your end
i remember those types of temples. its been awhile. we moved away from that gaudiness back in the 80's. Fuck, i remember when that came into fashon the first time back in the 90's
This information runs counter to what I've read and been told. You have to believe in a supreme being. Whatever name you give it, god, allah, martin, it has to be some benevolent, monotheistic, consciousness.
By definition, atheists don't. And because of that, they can't become Masons.
Well, they could lie. Nothing stops an atheist from lying. But that seems to miss the point.
