Freemasons are not a secret society. They are a society with secrets. People know who are members of a lodge or especially the Shriners. They ride around in parades on the go karts! They support crippled children and burn centers.

The KKK is a secret society. They obviously don't want people to know who they are.

Re: How can get a Mason to reveal they are a Mason, even if they want to hide it?
I suspect a certain man is a mason, so how do I get him to slip up and let me know?

Is there some question I could ask him that would reveal it? some secret handshake? How do I KNOW if someone is a mason or trick them into revealing it? Ideas?

Masons generally don't hide their affiliation.

Just ask him. If he is a Mason, he'll be happy to tell you.

BUT, if he's heard you ranting against Masons or putting Masons down just because they are Masons, then he might hide it from you.

For many years, Masons have been the targets of a lot of abuse. Masons have been exterminated in every fascist and Communist nation in history. Masons have also been persecuted by the Catholic church and many modern fundamentalist Christian and Muslim churches.

I can speak from personal experience that people can let their imaginations run wild when they hear I'm a Mason. Here on GLP, I've been called everything from a "shill" to a Satan-worshipper to much worse.

If your friend is a Mason and he thinks that you will start arguing with him about it, then he might hide it. Technically, we're forbidden from being drawn into arguments about the craft and it's not our place to defend the craft. To the anti-Masons, they have no reason to believe us anyway because you can't understand what Masonry is unless you're a Mason. We are just supposed to lead by example and represent Masonry by being just, neat and clean, charitable and devoted to the Lord.

Re: How can get a Mason to reveal they are a Mason, even if they want to hide it?
Masons arent some secret evil brotherhood.. if he was a true mason he would always have his ring on.. no ring.. not a mason.. You people need to drop the Masons are evil bit and move to the 21 Cent..
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1153822


That's not true. Masons are not required to wear a ring. Some Masons don't even have a ring. I wear mine regularly but I also wear others in its place. I'm a jeweller so I have to wear jewelry that I sell when I'm working.

The "no ring, no Mason" thing is definitely wrong.

I don't know much of how the lower levels operate or if they would even have reason to hide it [since most of them know next to nothing about it's history, true meanings and consider it nothing more than some club that does charity etc]. So if it's some higher degree the answer is - you can't, because they aren't stupid.

Re: How can get a Mason to reveal they are a Mason, even if they want to hide it?
have yet to discover why some hold such animosity towards masons. have met masons and and they seemed quite nice. many famous individuals have been masons. perhaps people despise what they do not understand or are not allowed to understand. am curious but it does not make me loathe them but rather respect what they have added to the world.

I have never read such a pile of crap in all my life. Just ask me. You can go knock on the door of any lodge and ask anything you like. There are very few things that cannot be told to you. The lesson here is do not believe everything you read. This thread actually made me laugh.
Asking how you make him slip up? How do I make you slip up and tell me your PIN number? You can't, it's asking me to slip up on my honor. Again BS!
