Do you know why there is secrecy?
Because in many countries, you will be murdered for being a Mason.
Not because of some silly satanic ritual, but because governments do not want people to be able to peaceably assemble without being watched.
That is where the secrecy originates from and it has been the safe haven for freedom around the world.
You may hate them,
But in a lodge, Muslims, Catholics, Jews, Buddhists, all gather as Brothers on the level as equals.
That is what the Church, the Mosque, and the government do not want.
A++++ This should be another post. Do it and I will PIN !
LOL - many groups meet everyday without government interference!
The secrecy is within the order as well, in that the majority do not know what the aims of the higher 'degrees' are.
Non-members are considered profane, and do not merit disclosure.
Now let's not revisit this old hat. Again, you are not giving eye witness testimony but rather relying on hearsay.
I know what goes on at the "Higher" level because I have actually been there. If there was more dirt than any other organization, I would say so.
Basket weaving is what this thread is about.
"The initiation prayer for a new Mason, which is offered by the Worshipful Master, is as follows:
"Vouchsafe thine aid, Almighty Father of the Universe, to this our present convention, and grant that this Candidate for Masonry may dedicate and devote his life to thy service. Endue him with the competency of thy divine wisdom, that by the secrets of our art
, he may be better enabled to display the beauties of holiness of thy holy name. Amen."

Anyway, I'm as bored as you by having to repeat old battles,
maybe as a basket-weaver you could debunk the propaganda for me, about the Catholic Church being full of pedophiles?
So far, the basket-weavers sound eerily similar to the masons, except for letting women in to speak.
Please verify you're human:
