My experience has been great. In terms of being open there really is nothing to hide. I just started, and am going to be raised as a fellow craft, which is the second degree in the blue lodge very shortly. Before I decided to petition I had some doubts regarding religion due to my strong belief in Christianity. However, after going through the first degree I found that it only made my beliefs stronger. I see you posted this about 3 years ago ha ha, If you haven't petitioned a lodge, and you have further questions please feel free to ask me. Respectfully, Jon

Brother you have come to the right spot. This is the oldest and most prestigious institution in existence that I know. I am a Master Mason here in India. This institution doesn't propagate a single religion but is tolerant to everyone. The main criterea is a belief in God. You can be a muslim, Christian, Hindu...., it doesn't matter. What ultimately binds is the spirit of brotherhood amonst men and the fatherhood of God.

I am a freemason 3rd degree master mason, and 10th degree York Rite Most Excellent Master Mason (york rite is the path to Knights Templar) there is also the Scottish Rite (which is the path to Shriner) There are 32 degrees and honorary 33 degree. Thats about all I can tell you the rest you must find out for your self. Once you become a Master Mason you'll understand why so secretive. But it is an honorable Fraternity. Actually you wrote this 8 months ago you should be a Master Mason by now and would understand. Let me know how it is going.

Hey! That`s a great discussion, sry im not tho! But my name is Ashley Leigh. I am fairly new to MyLot and have met a lot of nice people already! I was wondering if I could add you to *My Buddies*. That way, when you post new discussions I can reply to them and share my opinions. I hope that`s okay. Please let me know. I can also help you make more money on MyLot. Also, if you have MySpace, I`m on there everyday. Mine is www.myspace.com/skittlez353. MyLot is a really great way to make some extra money. You just have to be devoted. That`s how I see it. I`m a stay-at-home job so I just think of this as my way of making extra diaper money and it helps. I hope I can reply to more of your discussions though, please let me know if I can add you. xO` [ASHLEY] PS -

It's certainly unlike anything you have experienced to this point... a lot of what is done harks back to very old times... nobody is entirely sure why the ceremonies are performed the way they are... but some say that "The Hiram Key" is a fairly good book to read, as it provides a good theory about the origins of Freemasonry. For me, I believe the reasons behind the rituals etc have been lost for the most part and changed from the original to something more generalised... hopefully you'll get accepted into your lodge and can learn for yourself what it's all about... and if you don't like it you can leave... don't believe all you read from anti-masons...
