So Atheists are unwelcome. So much for that organization. Making belief in sky fairies a requirement for membership speaks a lot about Mason values and priorities.
Actually, Yes I do believe it speaks loud and clear about our values.
I understand enjoying the comradery and brotherhood of it (I'm an Eagle Scout myself) but what purpose does being a Freemason serve in your life and what do you enjoy most about it?
I am an Eagle Scout as well and a 30 yr Freemason (Past and current Master). Our main objective is not as you said to be more likely to do business with other Freemasons (though that does occur...don't you prefer to do business with people that you know as opposed to strangers?). Our objective is to help make good men even better. I am sure there are probably many men in your community that are masons that you might talk to for better information. We are an organization with secrets, not a secret organization. Dan
Sorry, I think you got whooshed!
Sorry but could you clarify? What is Whooshed?
You think a thief's friends are going to be impressed by that? Please.
Your point is well taken
The truth of a proposition has nothing to do with its credibility. And vice versa.
