It is just the degree work that is different. I don't know of any AA exclusive lodges in New York, but I could be wrong.

You are probably right. I know in the South there is all AA lodges, but I did not think that to be the case in New York. I don't know if they have even tried to change that.

LOL, I know you're all nice guys, but if you can't laugh at yourselves for being doctors, lawyers and presidents who put on capes and hold secret ceremonies like little boys, you're missing something.

I'll admit I don't much about it but what do you think? Is this a good organization based on what you know? Or not?

My Great grandfather was a freemason. As far as I know, he was a good church going Baptist.

Yes...I know many Masons who are in Churches every time the doors are open,but that doesn't keep preachers from preaching against it..the deacon of the church I attend was a WM several times in the lodge I belonged to and was there every time the lights were on.
