I am shocked by the amount of misinformation that I have found online regarding freemasonry. My father was involved in freemasonry and I have considered joining. It seems like some religious wackos have deliberately tried to discredit all the good things masons do by fabricating lies and calling them "heathens".

In fact, you have to believe in God in order to become a mason but I will leave it at that. In so many ways, freemasonry is superior to any type of organized religion because it allows people with different beliefs and backgrounds to come together and work for a common goal. The more I learn about the dirty tactics these so called "people of God" utilize, the more I realize that organized religion is a sham for the weak minded.

You should join. My father in-law got me to join and they are truly a wonderful organization committed to charity without personal recognition.

Bascailly the ld mason's fables are only popular among the conspiracy theory nuts just like the jews running america . They see a boogey man behind every door and few pay attention to them. Its gives them something to gossip about and out fo trouble; I guess.
