    Q & A session about Freemasonry

    OK, there's been a lot of BS tossed around in here - most of it jokingly - about the Masons. Let's try to do something about correcting some of the misconceptions. Ask me anything you want about Masonry, and I'll answer to the best of my ability. The more obscure questions the better.

    I will not divulge any of the signs, words, handshakes, etc. that we use to identify ourselves to our bretheren, nor any details of the ceremonies. Other than that, anything and everything is fair game. One other thing, I won't pay any attention to any of the absurd conspiracy theory stuff.

    Yeah, exactly. 'You guys can ask me questions, but don't ask anything about things that might be interesting or that people might actually want to know or care about.'

    The only thing left to ask is, "Will you come to my house and build me a wall?"

    Haha. Part of the super double top secret initiation ritual is you're forced under the blood oath to clean the stalls for your first two months. Maybe that lodge hasn't had any new recruits for a while.

    I guess my question is why are you guys so freakin' secretive and sneaky about it? I don't know what to make of that. Maybe you're hatching some diabolical plot, maybe you're putting on leotards and capes and prancing about the temple to the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, maybe you're just watching the Man Show.

    And what's with the deist thing? I find it hard to believe that you absolutely have to be a deist but they never ask you anything about it after the initiation. What's to stop a regular guy in a leotard from pretending to be a deist just to get in?

    How are the bathrooms at your lodge? Are you fulfilling your duties to their satisfaction, or are they going to have to sacrifice your skull to the sun god upon the altar of shame?

    Hmmm this Q&A "session" is interesting seeing as how the poster hasn't addressed any of the questions thus far and refuses to answer questions most likely to be asked about masons.

    That being said, what if someone who was a mason left the society to reveal all of its secrets, like, say write a book on it. Would you have to change everything?

    I will actually ask some serious questions here...

    What is the common element, the purpose of the organization, you might say?

    Why did you decide to join the group and why do you identify so strongly with them now? I mean, I believe you said previously that you are a recent new member, so it doesn't seem like you've been associated with them your whole life. But you use their name as your forum name and as your avatar.

    How do you go about joining? Are you asked to join out of the blue or do you ask to be asked to join?

    I'm pretty sure it is linked to religion somehow, so would a person be able to join if they were Jewish? Muslin? Buddhist, etc?

    Is there a difference between Masons and Freemasons?
