The Masons are bastards but it's not because they steal cornerstones or make grand plots.

That's a pretty broad statement dude- which one of these losers got your panties in a twist? John Hancock, Buzz Aldren, Douglas McArthur, Winston Churchill. Samuel Clemons, John Glenn, Charles Lindberg, Nat King Cole.......................I could go on.........

Why do you say that? From what I see the Masons do a lot of good deeds in America.

That's a misdirection. They do that just so people like you will think they're nice guys while they go around treating those who aren't Masons as marks. They're way ahead on the deal.

Go on doing what, misspelling names of people you admire? Makes me wonder how much you really know about them. Oh well, at least you avoided Nat King Coal.

In any event you've several prime jerks on your list: MacArthur, Churchill, Lindbergh and Aldrin come to mind.

What misdirection?

Shriners Burn Clinics are just ONE example of their philanthropy.

Why not tell us WTH you really have against Masons? Saying they treat all those who aren't is pretty vague and meaningless. Examples are needed.

I see just the opposite from where I stand.

The Anglo and Scotttish landlords who screwed over the natives in Ireland were often Masons; enough so that many native Irish have a fierce hostilty to them.

In business here I've seen Masons favoring other Masons when it came time for promotions (and lay offs). It's common knowledge that people join the Masons in order to get an advantage in business and other endeavors. Many years ago when I was recruited that was part of the pitch.

Well, there's a problem. Masons NEVER recruit. You have to ask one about membership.

Right....Freemasons do NOT recruit.

And the same reasoning applies to the Rotary Club, Kiwanis, Lions, etc. They are like-minded business people and joining them tends to help you advance your career.

It's not as if all Masons wear a tattoo on their forehead to know who is or isn't a Mason....so how could they treat non-Mason's as "marks"?

If you are discriminated against for any such reeason, the USA has laws to prevent that.
