ANOTHER tough gut, or are the same jagoff with mommy issues?

Don't answer. I won't be around to read it. Know why?

Because I actually like women and enjoy listening to them. In fact, I may be listening to your mom right now.

First, you must be a mason to be a Shriner. As you join each group, masons, Shriner, and Scottish rite they pay dues which go to the hospitals. There are many hospitals like the Shriners hospital in Lexington, which supply orthotics for children with missing limbs. There are burn units and recently they have open a place that helps with dyslexia. All are offered for FREE. They also support each other, financially, if needed.
No one needs to address their sexuality in an official meeting. Who cares, if someone was into any fetish would they feel the need to announce that? What did John want from his brothers when he made his declaration? NoOne cares who you get down with. But, you made a commitment to your wife and children, and did not honor that.
Masons are moral men, if it was a women he was being unfaithful with, and someone brought charges, the same thing would have happened.
A man with good morals would have resigned rather than put his family through such embarrassment for his infidelity.
This is NOT about being GAY. The same thing would happen if he was convicted of ANY wrong doing.
All that? Really? You bothered to do all that on A WEB FORUM?!!!

bahhhh hahahah!!

Ya'll must be awful damn desperate for new suckers these days!! bahhhh hahahaha!!!

Acting like it's History day. Too funny!

As a freemason, I am disappointed in the craft for their recent actions. Nowhere is it stated that gay people are not allowed in the frat.
This was a witch hunt brought about by a few homophobic members.
Masonic lodges are to support tolerance within the lodge. It is not a christian organization, but a belief in a higher power is required.
It was stated earlier that had he been brought up on charges for leaving his wife and remained hetero, the same thing would have happened. While it MAY be true we'll never know because it hasn't happened. John was singled out.
Until this incident, I believed in what the Masons promoted. I am embarrassed to be associated with them.
stop masquerading and being shady!!

you DEMAND belief in "TGAOTU" tell everyone who that is, or are you AFRAID to?

and if you are afraid...why? who would ask you to be? do christians keep their belief in christ a 'secret'? no...but you masons? hmmmm

Everyone, please just pat the little mason on the head and let him have his belief in eternal superiority over everyone else?

I think being unforgiveably boring must be yet ANOTHER mandatory requirement of the Secret order of Masonical Hat Boys.

Where's William Shatner when you need him to scream,"GET A LIFE!"? Could we clone him and prop him outside these gossiping, busy bodied, old coots lodges?

If you know a mason in your county ask him if not find the local lodge and talk to them your wife will have to wait until your a mason. Lodge members will explain to you
