Re: Nakedsnake calling all Masons.....
Nakedsnake - no, I said; I am at least a Master Mason.
And no, I have undertaken a side degree, so no I am not 'blue lodge'.
When I get around to it I am going to wax lyrical and quote at length how Albert Pike and The Duke of Somerset, destroyed Scottish Rite Freemasonry and turned it into a complete farce, but I can't be arsed at the moment. I'm feeling a bit fluey today. And NO TB, it's not a Colombian cold.
Finally Snake, my beleifs in God are personal to me, and I would rather not discuss them here or anywhere else. Sufficed to say, my God is probably closer to YAWEH or Allah than to the God of the New Teastament.
Max - yes I do pay fees, and I can be sure that they are not used for sinister purposes as I along with every other member of the lodge sit in an annual treasurers report meeting. Any funds left over at the end of the year go into the Almoners Fund (that goes to the widows/children of deceased Masons).........
