WHO would own up to having done such a botched tat?
"did this tattoo originate from this business?"
UGH, no, I'd be outta business if it did.
-or-
"I make one ugly tat early in my career and it comes back to haunt me, can't I get a break?"
I'm sure marinating in the river didn't help it either.

ongbok: Ghastly: Theeng: Knowing several masons, I find them ruling the world hard to believe.

They just go to to the lodge, drink beer, and bullshiat for a while.

My step-dad is a mason. We were talking the other day about how they're dying off. Young people just aren't terribly interested in going through a lot of mumbo-jumbo bullshiat in order to sit around with some 70 year old retired carpet salesman and get drunk. They're not going to rule the world and I wouldn't be surprised if in 50 years there are only a few hundred of them left.

Are you a Mason?

What I find about Mason is that their numbers are dwindling because they had become too selective about bringing in new members for a long time, and because of that they have become irrelevant with a whole generation of people who were ignored by the Masons and their kids. For example. years ago, when i was in my early 20's, I asked a Mason that I knew if he would sponsor me. He told me no because he didn't think I was ready for the "responsibility" that came with being a Mason. Then about 8 years later, when his hall's membership started to dwindle because of old Masons dying and people losing interest because they were denying so many people, he was begging me to become one.


Keep in mind that 8 years is a long time. I find it odd that he's "begging" you as you say, since we're not meant to recruit. We sometimes encourage people to go for it. Although our numbers are dwindling at the moment, Freemasonry has historically always had a rush of members that all dwindled at once. A large generation of men in my Lodge were vets of WWII, and they are indeed passing on. Some lodges, sadly, are starting to look at it like a business and would focus on numbers alone.

The main thing for me is the charity work.

Now we're off in a tangent. Onto this article: I can't read a word of that text under that symbol, but I know that that symbol is definitely not owned by the Masons. The all-seeing eye has been a symbol for God waaaaayyyy longer than when Freemasonry came about.

You would be surprised how many young men are joining.  Since I joined in 2004 roughly 2/3 of the men who have joined my lodge have been in their 20s and 30s.  We're adding men at the rate of about 10 a year.

THATS JUST WHAT YOU WANT US TO THINK, ISN'T IT?


Sorry but Masons can only drink in the Lodge once a year and that is for a special dinner.

And this emblem is 'Masonic-ish' but not 'Masonic'.

And yeah we rule the world.
Give us a call.
We'd love to talk to you.
Every lodge in the country is in the phone book and our manuals are in many public libraries.

ongbok: Hmmmm. Have you ever been in his silo or barn, if he has one? Or if he doesn't have one of those have you ever been in his basement or cellar? I'm not making any accusations, I'm just saying.....


I've been in one of his barns. And his house. Does that count?

Gonz: According to the Roman Catholic Church, your friend is living in Grave Sin, and cannot take Communion. It used to be very cut-and-dried: a Catholic who joined the Masons was subject to immediate excommunication. Vatican II muddied the waters a bit, but the future Pope Benedict XVI put out a statement in 1983 explaining that it's not really OK for Catholics to become Masons.


Eh. Guess that's where the free spirit part comes in. Good thing there's a new pope in town, huh?

All kidding aside, my friend is an all-around great guy who would do a frankly awful job of hiding any sort of conspiracy.

Cerebral Knievel: Having a tattoo of a masonic symbol is not neccesarly evidence of a masonic connection...

and to get it out of the way....

/To be one, ask one!


True.  Like most people display because they think it makes them look bad-ass.

It's the OES that you have to worry about.

I'm 32, and my Initiation is this Monday. Same Lodge my great-grandfather belonged to. Grew up around Shriners, know a few Masons. Awesome guys.

ongbok:  Are you a Mason?

No, I have a friend who is and kept dropping my hints that it would be a really good idea for me to join to. But honestly there are other ways I prefer to do charity work, mostly by performing at fund raisers. I'm an atheist so I see nothing about freemasonry that would appeal to me. When I'm in the mood for fellowship and psuedo-religious mumbo-jumbo I go play Dungeons and Dragons with my friends.
