Re: I am a 3rd Degree Master Mason, ask me a question...
Why do Master Masons keep using homeless women and drug addicted prostitutes to channel demons, dragons, and other archetype figures through? Also I was told by a friend who use to date a Master Mason, that they desire those who are born with a black aura? What does that imply?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10698963


This does not happen, ever.

If I were to ever meet that Master Mason in question, I would have to question his ideals, and ask why he joined the lodge if he would be spreading lies about our very special fraternity.
 Quoting: Archaic Mason


Perhaps you haven't been initiated into that degree yet. I use to be a squatter on the street and traveled all around the USA. I met plenty of women who were told stories of being abused and used by Masons for ritualistic purposes who found them at homeless shelters and on the street when some would work as prostitutes. For you to deny the accounts of 15+ different women I met in different cities over the years just shows how ignorant you're, and how much you don't know about your own brotherhood organization.

Re: I am a 3rd Degree Master Mason, ask me a question...
I believe it is true that some masons evolve into the elitist megalomaniac type that are ruining our country. I also believe there are masons that attain the "porch mason" level and generally are well intentioned, good guys. My problem with this is, the ones in the upper level tend to compartmentalize actions of those at the bottom level so that they can never figure out what piece of the bigger evil scheme they are being asked to fulfill!!!

Lower level masons are given different tasks based on which path they choose in their ritualistic testing. The organization sees value in both paths whether good or bad. Both types are useful, you will just ascend to the top if you are willing to do rotten shit!!! If you only do good then you are assigned menial tasks and kept at bay.

This is pretty much it in a nutshell. Mystery solved!!!

Hello Archaic Mason,

You make me laugh sometimes brother. That is the FUNNIEST Masonic joke I have ever heard.

The 3rd degree is like graduating from elementary esoteric school still wet behind the ears with a whole life of schooling still ahead of their elementary asses. Hence, you are either messing around with GLPers or you are misinformed.

C'mon brother, you know this.

The Blue Lodge 3rd Degree is the cap stone.

The Scottish Rite, 32nd degree, and everything included below it, is not necessary.

A 32nd degree has no more right or privilege than I, myself, a 3rd degree.

I'm not saying there isn't knowledge to be attained in the higher degrees, but the 3rd is it.

The highest title a man can bestow to man upon the face of this Earth.
 Quoting: Archaic Mason


I disagree brother. The 32 and 33rd degrees are bestowed on very few worthy bros. The reason being is that not all Masons are mentally or spiritually equipped to handle the teachings, nor the secrets of these degrees. Hence, why most all Masons never go above the Blue Lodge degree work.

Re: I am a 3rd Degree Master Mason, ask me a question...

I know a few Masons really well. I'll sometimes try and get them on certain subjects pertaining to the mystery schools, and they act stupid. I asked one supposed 32 degree Mason what he thought the checkered floor in his lodge meant, and he responded that it represents the battle between good and evil! lol I kind of threw in there that it represent the duality of the universe, and it kind of caught him off balance. Said Mason also had no idea who Albert Pike was, supposedly. Part of me thinks these guys are full of shit, but part of me thinks it depends on what lodge a Mason is a part of. I think some lodges move men up the ranks arbitrarily because they know that time is running out for this current system and they are just conning these idiots to get money out of them. The one mason I mentioned kept referring to how all he has to do is keep his membership fees paid and he was in like Flynn. I noticed it only took you six months from your initiation to attain a level three. You're probably just a Blue Lodge flunky. I guess I could ask how to get out of a parking ticket, or how to get into the Shriner's Circus for free; but that's about it.

bsflagIdol1
 Quoting: MrRumpleSteelskin


Blue Lodge flunky? Well excuse you, I'm not saying all Masons are into esoteric knowledge and the like.

Myself? I am.

Some people join for different reasons. I know why I joined, and I take it very seriously, as most do.

Trust me, after this system fails, and we live in a mad max type scenario.

If your still alive at that point, chances are you'll be going to a lodge to find shelter or food.

That's what we have done throughout the ages. Provide safe passage and safe haven to travelers, even if they aren't masons themselves.
 Quoting: Archaic Mason

Yeah, flunky. I know that a lot of your lodges have underground bunkers stashed with supplies for that Mad Max scenario, but I highly doubt protocol would allow you to help out any useless eater. Face it, frat boy; the counsel of 300 only use you beer swillers to manipulate and strong arm local politics so they know what's going on, and any real leaders which may arise get sifted out.
 Quoting: MrRumpleSteelskin


Well, profane, I do not doubt that we would take in ANYONE, hungry, wounded, in need. It is what we do. Faith, Hope, Charity.

Council of 300? Not associate with us, but nice try!
 Quoting: Archaic Mason

The only reason I'm not "initiated" is because I choose not to be. I am a novice Theosophist, though. I study everything from Manly P. Hall,Blavatsky, Saint Germain, to Machiavelli, etc. I even have access to your "bible".

Re: I am a 3rd Degree Master Mason, ask me a question...
Why do practically EVERYDAY I see a topic of I am a mason ask me a question shit? Happy I bit? Funny how you say ask me a question(which is troll speech) like you know any and everything. No idea here but im guessing 80% of masons are already a "3rd degree master mason". Its really nothing special. And im sure most of you saying your family was a 33rd mason is most likely bullshitin as well. Only way you can become a 33rd is by being voted by your peers, which is not the easiest task. My great grandfather was a 32nd degree mason then joined the scottish rite to become a shriner. Everything is compartmentalized in freemasonry just like any other cult/secret type group of humans. So I am basically saying, you could be a 32 degree mason and still know nothing of what is discussed at the top of the pyramid. Bottom line, free masons just like any other shadow group can lick my nuts. If you need to hide in the darkness, the light is going to shine through one way or another.

Actually, there has been an initiative to bolster membership. Before we were not allowed to ask someone to join, it used to be "2 B 1 ASK 1." No, we are encouraged to ask an outstanding member of society if they would be interested in joining a lodge.

Soon, you will see billboards, newspaper ads, TV ads telling the good ideals of Freemasonry, in order to gain new members.

How much of a stipend do you receive?

Oh, wait.. Blue lodge members are still paying dues, while higher level degrees (which don't mean anything, according to you) are being paid a monthly stipend out of the dues paid by the lower level initiates.

Also, when you are asked what god you believe in (at least in the higher degrees), the answer does matter. For one, it determines what bible you swear your oaths on, and also, you will not progress if you answer incorrectly.

Have you ever met a catholic mason? LOL!! I don't think so.

Have you read Morals and Dogma? Maybe you should. Oh wait, Albert Pike was no greater a mason than you. He wasn't privy to any secrets above and beyond what you have learned. Never mind.

33rd degree mason's travel to their annual meaning all over the world, all expenses paid. Somewhere different each time the meeting is held. When was the last time you were invited?

Enough said... You really need to dig deeper. Most initiates never make it past the master mason degree, because they are not privy to the benefits and knowledge beyond that. And that is INTENTIONAL, because they don't want the majority of the blue lodge idiots anywhere near them.

Re: I am a 3rd Degree Master Mason, ask me a question...
I'm sorry but I don't want to be an Emperor, that's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, jewish, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone.
The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate;
has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.

We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in:
machinery that gives abundance has left us in want.
Our knowledge has made us cynical,
our cleverness hard and unkind.
We think too much and feel too little:
More than machinery we need humanity;
More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.

Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me I say "Do not despair".

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress: the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die [now] liberty will never perish. . .

Soldiers: don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you and enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you as cattle, as cannon fodder.

Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts. You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate, only the unloved hate. Only the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers: don't fight for slavery, fight for liberty.

In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written:
"The kingdom of God is within man"
Not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men; in you, the people.

You the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy let's use that power, let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give you the future and old age and security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie. They do not fulfil their promise, they never will. Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfil that promise. Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness.

Soldiers! In the name of democracy, let us all unite!

Look up! Look up! The clouds are lifting, the sun is breaking through. We are coming out of the darkness into the light. We are coming into a new world. A kind new world where men will rise above their hate and brutality.

The soul of man has been given wings, and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow, into the light of hope, into the future, that glorious future that belongs to you, to me and to all of us. Look up. Look up.
