Some of this sounds like dissent from a bitter member who joined for the wrong reasons. If any member has committed a crime they should be punished and no true Mason would help a Brother cover up a crime.
Which is most ex masons and hell there alot of them that fit that description even in my family!. Heres a question would you cover up a crime for a brother plus commit perjury because he was a fellow mason. A straight answer would be appreciated so that doesnt mean making rings around the question thankyou sir demon puppet.
