There are a lot of misunderstandings within Christianity about Masonry. Best thing you can do is read “is it true what they say about freemasonry” by Art DeHoyos, then have your parents read it. You becoming a Mason and hiding it is up to you, I can’t help you there. I know that I wanted my parents to understand and now hide it from them so I helped them understand what it’s really about
Masons don’t ask a member about his sexual preference. It’s his business.
New apes, grips, floorboards, and bags but the mounts were missing so the hard bags aren’t on yet. Cruise control, cutting baffles down, and power-commander next week. Gotta get floorboards painted then she’s done for quite a while. Finally. Maybe a new saddle and sissy-bar too. ….I once heard, “you never own a motorcycle..the motorcycle always owns you.”
Haha oh, yep…because the Boozefighters like to ride motorcycles, enjoy brotherhood, and drink beer? Yeah, seems like that totally contradicts the Order. Allow me to whisper some good council…educate yourself on BFMC first, and 2nd: don’t make comments like that through anonymity like a coward. I’ll use tact when you man up.
You could tell them you’re interested but there is absolutely no way you can join unless you’re 18 in most states, 21 in a few. Doesn’t hurt to make contact though!!
contact a Lodge and tell them you’re interested. Go to the Grand Lodge website for whatever state you live in and there should be a Lodge directory in there somewhere. This ensures you’re talking to a “real” Lodge. There are some fake Lodges out there, but you won’t have to worry about that if you go to the Grand Lodge website for your state and find one in your town. When you contact them and tell them you’re interested, they’ll probably invite you to a dinner, breakfast, or some kind of open event. It generally takes a few to several months for the Lodge to get to know you so they can see if they want you to be a member or not. If you’re not willing to take the time to get to know a Lodge, don’t waste your time trying to become a Mason..to be blunt. It’s a fraternal order and the Lodge won’t vote you in just because you want to be a Mason. They need to get to know you to see what kind of man you are first. Anyway, when you contact a Lodge they will guide you through the process. Eventually they will give you a petition to fill out and two Master Masons from the Lodge you’re joining must sign it before you can be brought up for a vote. Once your petition is read in a closed meeting it is “laid over” for one month..then voted on 30 days later. This gives them time to send an investigative committee to your house to talk to you.
haha no that’s not true at all. Once you get involved with Masonry and learn the meaning behind everything, all the conspiracy and “devil” rumors are really entertaining to be honest. There is not one single symbol, lesson, or teaching that is “pro-devil” or anything of the sort.
I have several. I see no issue with it at all
