Any organization is only as strong as it's weakest member. It looks to me like the Mason's tossed out the strongest and most honest member they had. Tells us what is left doesn't it. I know several masons and they aren't good people. Just well dressed.

I am so sick of hearing gay rights! The only thing you can't do legally is marry. And the only benefit that has is a tax break. You have your gay pride parades. What do people think Mardi Gras is all about? You can work, by a home, car, whatever you want. You can't have kids, but well, you're gay and it wasn't your fault you were born with the wrong parts, right? It's harder to adopt, but not unheard of. People are always not going to like people for one reason or another. I want to know where are the hetero pride parades? I want Kings Island to do private hetero days for us straight people like they do for gay people. You need to open you eyes and realize you have more special events than African Americans ever had. Sexuality is not a good basis for a civil right. You know a certain place doesn't like gays, fine, stay away. Don't act like a kid and walk up in some place knowing you will cause a commotion and cry about it. Geez, enough is enough.

Mardi Gras is about eating well and living it up before Lent, silly.

And you want a hetero parade? A few more special events? Go ahead! Who's stopping you?

Freemasonry's Connection To The Homosexual Movement
Albert Pike was a Freemason highly esteemed by fellow Masons. In honor of Pike they have erected a monument to him, named an Albert Pike Consistory after him, dedicated an imposing Masonic lodge to him (the Albert Pike Memorial Temple in Little Rock, Arkansas), and richly praised him in some of their books. Pike, who reached the highest level of Scottish Rite Freemasonry (the 33rd degree), was himself a prolific author of numerous works on Freemasonry. Various quotes from one of his books, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, probably Pike's magnum opus, will be featured in this composition.
(Note: Even though Pike is widely acknowledged to be the author of this book by both Masons and non-Masons alike, there is no mention of an author on the title page of the 1921 edition of the work I possess and from which I quote. Instead of an author's name, the page reads: "Prepared for the Supreme Council of the Thirty-Third Degree for the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States and Published by its Authority." The next page following the title page does contain these words: "Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1871, by Albert Pike, In the Office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington.")
The esoteric all-male group known as Freemasonry (or Masonry) has been controversial for many many years, and has been connected to the homosexual movement for many years by a number of researchers. "Why?" you may ask.
Like other esoteric groups and some fraternities, the Masons have secret doctrines and initiations. Now, as Pike mysteriously put it, Freemasonry "conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it. Truth is not for those who are unworthy or unable to receive it, or would pervert it."1
Instead of Masons explicitly spelling out their secrets, they only obliquely impart them. Pike states: "What the Chiefs of the Order really believed and taught, is indicated to the Adepts by the hints contained in the high degrees of Free-masonry."2 Pike again: "The symbols and ceremonies of Masonry have more than one meaning. They rather conceal than disclose the Truth. They hint it only."3 More: "We have hints, and not details,"4 "hints of the true objects and purposes of the Mysteries."5 (The "Mysteries" are secret Masonic "Truths" and secret initiatory rituals.)
Pike is wont to speaking in enigmas because he can only hint at Masonic secrets. Masons take oaths not to reveal the group's secrets.
Upper-level Masons even keep secrets from lower-level Masons. According to Pike, a lower-level Mason "is intentionally misled by false interpretations [of Masonic symbols]. It is not intended that he shall understand them [the symbols]; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry."6 Lower-level

my uncle was a gay and i always asked how do you know for sure who else is gay? remember it wasnt that long ago gay,s were imprisoned for there crime.
he told me about the differnt colour handkerchiefs hanging out of pockets and grips and preferences.

so where do the gay,s get there teachings from?

http://www.landoverbaptist.org/news0101/shake...

runs paralell to masonic teachings dont you think?

one more point do the drug dealers on here really think they are so smart that no one keeps tabs on them as long as they pay there due,s they are relitivly safe if you are not part of any order expect jail!

its not just the masons its all of the orders protestant,catholic they all work for the same boss (satan) every society is building up babylon to the days of orgy,s sodomizing.

as in the days of Noah so shall it be in the end times, but no man no the hour of the day there of!

I agree. Too many people forget we have a RIGHT to association, whihc means you have a RIGHT to form private clubs and include and exclude whomever you wish for whatever reason you wish.
If you don't like a private organizations's beliefs and practices, then don't join.

The Masons, one of the potential guardians of the Grail. Traceable all the way back to the Knights Templar. They hold and control more influence on our government than any elected member. Their signs and symbols are all over Washington, and our money.
So they did not want a gay in the organization? So they tossed him out. Good for them. The US military will be following suit in a short time.
Never seen so many grown men so proud to swallow horse sh*t. Taste good?

No, because a woman can't be a Mason. I don't think the Masons discriminate against gay members. It's the fact that this person committed adultery. That's a serious sin for ANY person.
Not 'can't'. The word implies they'd want to hang out with or be boys who have 'icky girls!' issues well into adulthood.
They don't. You're just desperate to believe they do. Grow up, Sport. It won't hurt, promise.
