What do you think about them, I have heard theories that they secretly control everything (they do have symbols on US currency) etc. I think they are old men who smoke cigars and play cards.
What prompted this is my Grandfather's card from the Grand Lodge of Scotland Free and Accepted Masons, issued in 1936, which I just came across. He died shortly before I was born, so I can't ask him about it...

My father was a Freemason, and left abruptly. He won't talk to be about it. Codes of silence etc. when they join. The only thing he ever told me was the secret handshake. He showed me how it is done and said to beware of anyone who uses it, and not to trust them completely.
I gave myself to sin, I gave myself to providence,
And I've been there and back again, the state that I am in ...
I think they're creepy, kinda like the Illuminati. What I know of them is mostly filtered thru Crowley and OTO type stuff. I've noticed it permits otherwise "christian" men to place inverse pentagrams on their Cadillacs and tombstones. They seem, to me, the epitome of the biggest "front" of respectability on an incredibly devious group of people. That said, I do find them fascinating, as well.
I found a masonic edition of the bible in an antique store in Amarillo, TX, dated 1927 if memory serves, but I didn't have $75 at the time.
I took a wizz on the masonic temple here in town 2 New Years' ago, just to tempt fate.
They are reading this and will now hunt me down.
I'm in this mood because I'm scorned, I'm in a mood for total war.

I think it's also creepy that they have huge temples everywhere. The one in Detroit is gigantic and so is the one in Chicago. The one in Chicago is all dark brick and looks very medieval, it's scary looking.
They are going to bring a law in soon in the UKthat requires all memebers of the Police Force to register whether they are FreeMasons, personally I think that groups of men coming together to make silly handshakes is nothing more than a way of expressing their repressed homosexuality, but then thats only my opinion and I could'nt prove it
;three years ago for xmas some friends gave me a thick book called the new encyclopedia of freemasonry. dull, dry, and devoid of secret handshakes. I read as much as I could hack. Then the masons advertised that they were having a thanksgiving lunch a few miles from where I worked (this is all rural). I had seen the outside of their windowless building since birth and wanted a chance to check out the inside. The turkey was moist and tender, the mashed potatoes were buttery and delicious. However, I bake a much better pie than those illuminati housewives in Order of the Eastern star. I didn't see the time travel mechanism, like in Peggy Sue Got Married, but a friend of mine that's an electicioan did some remodel work in a different lodge, and he said there was some unorthodox (from and electrician's standpoint) lighting. Lots of colored lights all controlled from a central panel. All in all, I found no evidence that they control the British Pound or that they keep the metric system down.
I should note, for the record, that I just got home from my bro's bachelor party and I am piss drunk. All opinions expressed are YEAAAHGHHH>>!!. they sure are.
cool topis devil, i saw a guy on tv who wrote a book just recently about this subject, it includes every thing he could dig up on every powerful secret organisation that has ever been documented.
id love to get it and read more about this topic. maybe some one knows the guys name, or the name of the book?

Two really good books about Freemasons are "The Hiram Key" and the follow up book"The Second Messiah".both written by Christpher Knight and Robert Lomas.I read them both and couldnt put them down.They were originally written by a couple of curious freemasons that wanted to find the meaning behind all their silly secret rites.
What they found was a history going back beyond ancient Egypt,all through the old and new testament,to the crusades,to the shroud of turin,to the discovery of America.
I originally came across these books while looking for stuff about the Knights Templar.
I would recommend these books especially to anybody interested in christianity or religion in general.The stuff about Jesus and the new testament is a total mindfuck.
A lot of the books focus is on the Rosslyn Chapel built by William St Clair(Sinclair) in the village of Roslin in Scotland in the 1400's or something like that.Has anyone ever been there?
From a page too bad to link:
"Now freemasons are evil worshippers, they want to influence the world undder evil oppression, they are the leaders of such groups as the mafia, ku-klux klan and other big orginizations. America is already inder this evil influence as Bill Clinton is a freemason. He and others such as The Queen of England, Matt Groening-he uses to manipulate us using the Simpsons (believe me), Prince Charles, Madonna and Leonardo Di Caprio-yes!."

There definately is something weird about Masons but it has always been my ambition to be one.
I think it would rock. Not for any special benefits but more to just be a mason.
The problem with them seems to be the type of person and the positions that they occupy in the real world.
They do promote hatred tho' which is big suck.
All said and done I wnna be a non-hating fat mason who eats lots of good food and blags lots of free stuff. And never getting arrested again would be a bonus
