One of the pre requisites to join Masonry is the belief in 'A Higher Being', so it does require a monotheistic belief.
It is open to all faiths.
Not to offend any of the faiths within the lodge, the God is called Great Architect of The Universe (GATOU).
Simply because I swore my oath in a predominatly Christian lodge, I swore it over the Bible, but in other contries, provinces or regions you swear over the appropriate book (Volume of Sacred Law VSL) so the Torah, Koran etc.....
I'm sorry, could you specify what it is you 'believe' more than most of us? Thankyou.
Specify? I doubt it, but I'll try.

Madkhao - don't take it as a personal slur - please.
I cannot state PROOF, but only that which I believe.
I saw a freemason ritual (DeMolay, which are, generally, junior masons) and I SENSED the mockery of a religious ritual in progress.
At first, I said to myself, 'okay, ya know what, its a frat club, is all, and everything will be okay.'
However, everytime I went to one of them, I'd pull words and phrases out that just seemed 'wrong,' so I decided to do a little bit of research at the library.
And then there were the symbols. I saw a pentogram . . . that's not cool to a Catholic . . .
And so, after I researched a few different things, I said, 'fuck it, lets look for books on satanism.'
And guess what I found . . . I found that a lot of the 'code words' that they used were actually derivatives of phrases that were written by the likes of Crowly and LaVey . . . Alisdair Crowly being what he was, and Anton Szandor Lavey, being the self-proclaimed 'black pope of satanism' (who, by the way, humored me that he used to be a caliopy player)
Its a big cult . . . without all the inconveniences of having the leader sleep with yours and everyone elses wives, while you go to work just to sign your check over to some lunatic who has a way with words. Its even bigger than Jehovas Witnesses . . . which in and of itself isn't BAD, it just doesn't seem right.
And then there was all this stuff about brotherhood, and never EVER letting a brother get into trouble . . . well, if a brother of mine robbed a bank and killed 20 people . . . does that mean if I knew it was him, am I expected to go down with him if he told me and I did nothing? That would make me an accomplice, wouldn't it?
Looking back at it now, if I were to stick with it, I'd probably be in a much better working position, making a hell of a lot more money than I am now. But is my eternal soul worth the temporary life down on earth?
And the points of view that was suggested that I had to believe in, even if I didn't agree with it? Isn't that just a bit one sided? I mean Catholics debate each other, they scrutinize the church, hell the church scrutinizes God . . . at least there is free will, even with the church. I just will myself to do the right instead of the wrong.
It's not proof, but its what I believe, and that's what was asked, right? Why we believe the masons are generally bad?

[size=large]Making Dreams And Nightmares a Virtual Reality.[/size]
Professor Otto von Schnitzelpusskrankengescheitmeyer
Good: selfless acts, truth, justice - Acts of the light
Evil: Careless or thoughtless acts, cruelty, inconsideration, selfishness - Acts of the darkness (not the band)
The Entered Apprentice Freemason seeks light. NOT lucifer the light bringer, but light.
OK, Next, Alistair Crowley was NOT a Freemason. DeMolay is NOT a UGLE recognised craft, therefore not true Freemasonry.
And the Oxford dictionary definition of a cult, well one of them at least, is:
Cult (n) An exclusive group of persons sharing an esoteric, usually artistic or intellectual interest.
So to argue semantics, you are correct in that.
To discuss the Brotherhood. It IS expected that a brother helps another brother EXEPT where that help is either: Contrary to the laws of the country or detrimental to the wellbeing of others. Breech of these two rules is frowned upon to say the least.
I did stick with it DarkChilde3D and I'm still poor, in debt etc etc.
Most freemasons haven`t enough power to be "the architects and engineers of the NWO". The international banksters controlling also the international corporations are. As well as the Brjezinsky or Kissinger kind of theoreticians they employ.
Freemasons just play a childish "secret society" game and make easier to the real "architects and engineers of the NWO" to find the sort of pawns they need for their own mortal game: power- and secret-lovers, antichristians (most freemasons are proud to be "free" of any religious belief), convinced of the necessity that an "elite" rule the "ignorant mass" and of course "philanthropic" enough to see themselves in the role of that "elite".
Those freemasons (politicians, "artists", corporation managers, etc) who help to construct the new planetary liberal-fascism of the gangster-banksters are only pawns. However, the fact these pawns are always high-degree masons proves enough the pernicious spirit of the freemasonry. Of course, honor to the exceptions.
Madkhao - don't take it as a personal slur - please.
Don't worry, I wasn't. I just wanted to know what your beliefs are.

To be honest, I can't tell if you're being sarcastic here. Are you serious?? Is this really what you believe in? I have to know for sure before I flip out on you..
