Like the female only one: La Grande Loge féminine?Backward and outdated, no women allowed.
My grandfather quit and became a lay preacher. Never spoke of it after.I grew up with Freemasonry and have been to meetings. It is a cult and a religion. A money making boys club. My Dad and his best pal donated large amounts of money to them monthly with promises of "we will look after each other".
They apparently had their own apartment blocks should a member fall on hard times.
My Dad did and no help was offered. His pal died penniless in a one room shack.
In their "bible" that I have seen, on the second page it states that Freemasonry is a religion. The Grand Master is treated like a God as he sits on his throne and hardly speaks a word. I always got that evil feeling there.
Do you have a white pointy hood?I am a Freemason!
Fourth Generation proven and have been in the craft for the past twenty years.
I don't think I am an evil person! Drink too much perhaps! But my morals and principals are solid!
There is a very good series on Freemasonary on Netflix called "Inside The Freemasons" , Masonry around the world is in decline and the series is meant to enlighten others into what we are about, but I fear they have left it too late to "open up" and the institution will fade into obscurity.
You can also google the torrent for the series!
Boet! After reading your posting, I rushed to my Masonic Bible, thinking I had missed that page two and was extremely disappointed to find out that a Masonic Bible is just plain old boring King James Bible.......In their "bible" that I have seen, on the second page it states that Freemasonry is a religion. The Grand Master is treated like a God as he sits on his throne and hardly speaks a word. I always got that evil feeling there.
I agree, the secrecy is what is killing the fraternity, it has just about outlived it's purpose and the youngsters are not interested in joining.Why do they have to be so secretive though?
That's why and where people get all these theories from.
You should hold onto that. Could be worth a couple of bucks as a collectors item?
