I'm a mason and I have made some very good friends all over the world as a result.

Most of the hype anti-masonry spouts is a complete fabrication based on a lack of understanding. Masons are men who are trying to better themselves and their fellow man.

Greetings to all of my masonic brothers out there.

I thought about joining a lodge here recently, but it's too many ignorant muthaphuckas within the brotherhood around here. Plus I can't a Prince Hall lodge around here anyway.

I got a bad impression of the Masons... when I was in Europe. I know quite a few and they are good ppl but some of the things that were going on wasn't cool to me. But it could very well be just a few ppl that are misrepresenting the Masons and what they actually stand for.

Blacks aren't real masons. We are the descendants of the moors who initiated caucasians into masonry. Masonry is for caucasians. Moorish Science is for moors.

a bunch of rituals which means absolutely nothing. They all know the real power comes from the mind...not a book, spell, church or pastor.

The moors had a culture of learning. Our ancestors translated the ancient egyptian, greek, roman cultures and texts. Europe was 99 percent illiterate all thanks to the catholic church but the moors put an end to that giving the cauasian the knowledge that sparked the renaissance. Before that they was delivering babies without even washing their hands...which led to a very high mortality rate. Witches, wizards were all students of moorish science which is why they were persecuted by the church..Merlin was even believed to be a moor. Now they give the masses religion and believe while they study the mysteries in secrecy.

Hello Morrison,

Good question.

Long before the U.S. government provided a social "safety net," the Masonic tradition of founding orphanages, homes for widows, and care for the aged provided the only protection many people knew. Today, Shriners hospitals treat many children free of charge. I have a few friends who volunteer to drive the sick kids for their appointments at these hospitals.

My own lodge gives out two scholarships every year to needy college bound high school seniors. We also go to elementary schools to do identification programs known as "CHIP".

Over the centuries, Freemasonry has developed into a worldwide fraternity emphasizing personal study, self-improvement, and social betterment by way of individual involvement and philanthropy. The dignity of man, the liberty of the individual, the right of all persons to worship as they choose, and the importance of education stand at the forefront of Masonic thought.

It's a thoroughly great fraternity. I myself have become a much better man as a husband, father and community leader because of my involvement in Freemasonry.

Hello Traveling Man,

I assume you are a Mason? Fraternal greetings if that is the case.

Prince Hall Masonry in the USA has a longer history then the vast majority of the Ancient Free and Accepted Grand Lodges. I personally look forward to visiting some next year as travel as master of my lodge.

I live in a town of about 10,000 and I know of five black men who live here. Three of those five are brothers in my lodge. There has never been any discussion about the color of their skin. As a matter of fact, in voting for new members, it would be easy for a prejudiced person to vote 'no' based on race since the ballot is secret. Fortunately, in my lodge that has not occured.

Of course, one will encounter racism in every part of society. It does make me shake my head in disbelief though, when a mason is racist after all of the great principles he swore to uphold.

I would say that real, useful power is in the heart and will be evidenced by how we treat our fellow man. Especially when he is in need.

What's Eastern Star?

In Indy, we one of the largest churches is the Eastern Star Church. There's about 3 or 4 of them. I've been a couple of times, but I thought it was a church just like many others. It does tend to be a mixed congregation.

Am I wrong?
