What an odd woman. Apparently she is somehow convinced that Freemasons are some boogeyman or are in some way ungodly.

I'm the Senior Warden of my lodge and I can tell you with certainty that we are not trying to take over the world, worshiping the devil, or otherwise sacrificing virgins. Anyone who thinks we are trying to run the world should come and watch us try to organize a luncheon. Seriously.

I agree. She didn't have a breakdown. She's batshiat crazy all the time.

Late to the party but is this the thread where all the Christians laugh at this Lady for talking to an invisible man that lives in the clouds?

Advise to husband. If you must dip your wick in crazy, run like the devil is after you when you are done. I'll be right behind you.

God clearly didn't want them to have a job.

That is exactly what you would say if you were. Why are you protesting so much? What do you have to hide?

I'm just asking questions.

Close2TheEdge: We believe with all our hearts that what took place that night was God speaking through Dianne," her husband said, "bringing forth the word of correction to our government and hopefully... before he brings his judgment ... on our country."

Yeah well, whatever you nutballs want to believe is fine.  You still don't get to disrupt the proceedings on the floor of Congress with your religious nonsense.


Most of the Congress critters probably thought it was Michelle Bachmann

I just left Senior Deacon.  Sadly, I work nights, so I can rarely get away for the meetings.  That and my Lodge is about a 2hr drive...


Awesome!


That sucks, but I understand.  Work always comes first.  Luckily my nights are free and I live about 5 minutes from my Lodge (and have 3 of my great-grandfather's dues cards from said Lodge.)
Senior Deacon is a fun chair.

Heh.  More than that, I attend as many Grand Lodge functions as I can, and you'd think THOSE guys could get the PA system or Powerpoint presentation working, you know, being the elite and all.

Yeah.  It also sucks that we're a pretty small Lodge, being up in the White Mountains.  Small enough that I'm the last new member raised, and that was 5-6 years ago, now.  There are several closer, and I'd thought about having a dual membership, but the local Lodge meets on the same nights as my regular one.  Still, it is pretty cool having me, Dad, and Grandpa all in the same Lodge.  At least I can usually get the night off for the major events.

zimbomba63: So when I was a ute, in Catholic grade school, they started running this Trinity concept by us very early on.  I never understood their reasoning for it.  If God was going enter into your being, why did he have to take a different form and be represented by a bird?  It, to me, was all part of this schizoid personality thing, that God had going (yes, i didn't know anything about schizophrenia at that age, but, I knew bizarre behavior when I saw it) and put me on the road to agnosticism by the time I hit Catholic high school, and then atheism, by the time I graduated.

/I always wondered why the Sacred Heart of Jesus was on fire, but, was smart enough not to ask.  I know symbolism was a big part of it, but c'mon, it was the 20th century and they weren't talking to the peasants anymore.


the whole trinity concept always seemed like the Achilles's heel of Christianity to me...  so God is god... and Jesus is god and this spirit thing is god... all without beginning or end... they always have been and always will be... 'consubstantial'...but Jesus was 'begotten' at a specific time in history (roughly 2k years ago)... but he existed as one with the 'father' prior to that... and after that.  perfectly clear.  so if Jesus is full-fledged God... then that whole crucifixion thing wasn't really that big a deal then was it?  I mean, he's not 'a' god he is 'the' God... all knowing, all powerful, without beginning or end... so the whole 'painful suffering and death on the cross thing' isn't really all that bad for a GOD then is it... especially since he knew what was happening and how it turned out... now if he was really just a man... and faced that... that takes more balls in my opinion... men can be killed... gods can't.  So the second you throw Jesus into the trinity and say he is 'consubstantial'... not that he is 'made by god' or 'created by god'... but that he 'is' God... ok, now you've gone just a bit too far with your little story.

scottydoesntknow: Why is that a valid defense? Seriously?

You've got a mental illness.


Because if it weren't a defense, 90% of our country would have been committed by now.

No offense, but...what do you guys do then?  I ask because most of the Lodges around here have all 3 degrees once a month, each.  Some of the smaller ones may have only one or two in a month.  There's the business meeting, and the occasional fundraiser, but it's the degree work that is the focus.

 Still, it is pretty cool having me, Dad, and Grandpa all in the same Lodge.

That is pretty awesome.

The guys I used to play D&D with (at the Lodge, on Tuesdays) mostly hung out outside of their ceremonial sessions (which of course I wasn't privy to, but w/e). That and their fridge was always REALLY well stocked for beer.

Pretty sure they weren't planning anything more than killing a six pack, most of the time anyway.

All i can say is that the Holy Grail makes for a fine drinking cup. Other than that, no comment!

I love watching God troll idiots like this.

This chicks obviously insane.

The pastor saying the same thing in churh is obviously speaking to god, though, so we should give them tax breaks.

NOT MENTALLY ILL


That's funny coming from someone who's obviously an Alex Jonesian. That's like having the mental ward patients diagnose each other.

Some of them like to show up for the free meals.

We lovingly refer to them as the "Order of the Knife and Fork"

Kumana Wanalaia: Marcus Aurelius: exick: It's good that the holy spirit is handing out assignments now. The Ghost Board was getting ready to come down on it since it became pretty notorious for being a slide prof, what with only requiring an hour a week and an occasional fainting spell to get by.

I always figured the "Holy Spirit" was something they made up so there would be a triple invisible sky god.  I mean, God I can understand.  Jesus I can understand.  But once you've covered all that territory, how in hell do you come up with something as lame as a "holy spirit"?  Nobody even knows what the hell it does, besides making weird people talk funny.

The holy spirit is what descended on Jesus like a dove when he was baptised by John.

(iirc)


Jesus' dad celebrated his baptism by jizzing all over him and everyone thinks Tom Cruise is creepy?

We usually have a meal, open the Lodge, talk about what ailments are keeping most of the old guys from being there, then close the Lodge and go home.  We also do some more interesting things occasionally, like "The Old Man Speaks" annual event, where we gather for a night of short Masonic lectures.  I think I'll be volunteering to speak on Joseph Brant and the tradition of Masonic fraternizing across the lines during conflicts.  A few times now, since several of our members are employed by the local tourist railroad line, we've had a "moving Lodge" meeting on the train.  We'll go have a short meeting in one car, while our guests hang out in another car, then we share a catered meal.
