Quote# 87554

Masons do not allow the name Jesus be used in their prayers in their lodges. They are afraid of offending any non-Christians who may be present. Speaks volunes and tells us all we really need to know.

The red fez worn by the Shriners comes from the times when muslims would slaughter Christians and dip their white fez they wore in the blood of the Christians.

Freemasonry is evil, end of story. The end goal is Satan worship. Many of those that are in oit don't realize that until they have too much time and money "invested" in it.

More anti-freemason propaganda, probably gleaned from a Chick tract.

The only issue I have with the freemasons is that they don't allow atheists to join. You don't have to be especially Christian, but you have to express belief in a god. Not that I care to join or anything.

No, you don't have to be a 32 degree Mason to be a Shriner, but you do have to be a Mason.

Actually, Shriners support three hospitals in the U.S. which tend to severely injured children with no regard to the child's ability to pay. They are neither more nor less boring than any gathering of 60+ year old men, but do do an awful lot of good with their fezes and parade antics.

Did you know Christians don't even mention Xork the Space God in their prayers in their churches? They are afraid of offending and non- Xorkologists who may be present. Really speaks volumes about these devil worshipping non- Xorkologists. Therefore Christianity is evil, end of story.

Daniel1210 will barf in the Mason jar after too many cheesy Jackie Mason jokes then go insane with Nick Mason's drumming (cuz rock music is EVIL!), only to be walled up by the Stone Mason...who's a WOMAN! The godless brazen harlot!



I love it!

To the Shriners, keep up the good work with the hospitals & such. I only kid about your goofiness cuz I love (and to emphasize the fundies' stupidity).

Christianity is evil, end of story. The end goal is imaginary giant man worship. Many of those that are in oit don't realize that until they have too much time and money "invested" in it.

Ugh this shit again. Freemasonry is basically just religion for people who don't see the need to kill people over the specifics of their faith, and who are interested in actually studying the myths and mysteries that all modern religions are based on. If you don't like religion, fine, don't join. But all idiots like this do is prove that they are so intolerant that the idea of a group that rivals their claim to being religious or spiritual, but doesn't hate anyone unlike them, is "evil" and "satanic".

PS, the majority of Masons are Christian. My grandfather was one. Increasingly, the younger generations of Masons include a lot of neo-pagans, even a few so-called satanists, but the one thing that is incompatible with freemasonry is atheism.

@ Mr Awesome: I don't like them. I just think they look silly.

@ Colgate: I'm aware of that...that's the shop they talk about, ain't it? ;)

"Historically, there is no basis in fact for the charge. The city of Fez was founded by an invader, Sultan Idris I. Idris, who won a war against resident pagans at the very end of the eighth century. All of the conquered were converted to Islam and if there were any Christians, history does not record this. The cap itself wasn't begun until after the second sultan, Idris II, expanded the town to the other side of the river as he attempted to encourage local craft industries. It is important to remember that the dyes of that time were not particularly bright colors but the Moroccans had several good dyes whose formulas were secret. One of these was a bright red and was used in the manufacture of that brilliant red cap which was named after the city of its manufacture, Fez."

Looks like you're caught red handed lying for Jesus, Daniel. Now say fifty hail mary's, take your tin foil hat off, and confess your ignorance/slander to your God for you have sinned in judging others which is not your business to attend to in the first place.

exactly, I posted earlier in this thread (post #1407552 ) as I mentioned earlier I was born with both feet severely deformed, every doctor my mother took me to basically said "buy her a wheel chair stick her in it and get her used to it for the rest of her life" then my mom came across the El Jebel Shrine, took me five years of intense surgeries but I can walk now

they also helped with some other congenital defects I had in my eyes and my spine (I was severely messed up physically)

because of this, badmouthing the Shriners is a SEVERE hot button for me

Says "end of story." Continues story.

The Shriners hire people to dress up as clowns for parades and the like. Are you just afraid of clowns?

Skeptical Mason

Man these conspiracy theorists crack me up. I grew up in and around the Masonic order, and the best way I can describe it is that it is mostly a social club for old people who believe that it gives greater moral meaning to their lives. In practice 99% of they do is squabble amongst themselves over things such as dues, dinner, and internal politics. Between all of that they do a lot of fundraising for various charities.

Also, just to clarify a few things: You do have to be a fully-initiated (3rd degree, or "Master Mason") member of the Freemasons in order to become a Shriner. In years past you had to belong to one of the "expansion pack" organizations, either the Scottish Rite (receiving the 32nd/33rd Degrees), or the York Rite (joining both the Royal Arch Lodge, and the "modern-day" Knights Templar), however this is no longer the case. There are persistant rumors that the Shrine may one day drop it's Masonic membership requirement altogether, but this has yet to be taken seriously at any of their national conventions.

To join, you can't be an atheist in standard British/American Masonry, though the French Grand Orient and it's descendants think otherwise. I am unusual in that when I joined at 18, I was still a religious church-going Christian, and at 19 I had a bit of faith crisis. These days when I do go to Lodge I tell prying members that I am a Humanistic Deist, but the truth is that I believe as much in God as most of you. I like the organization a lot, I just wish it was a little more open minded with regards to women and the non-religious. After my Dad and Grandpa have shaken off the mortal coil, I'll probably transfer my membership into a French/Continental Lodge.

sandchigger: Actually, all Shriners are Freemasons. You have to be a Master Mason as a precondition for membership. I say this as a Mason (but not a Shriner).

Attributing any radical Islamic motives to the Shriners is pants-on-head crazy. It's a social club of mostly White, Christian men who dress like clowns and drive silly cars in parades to raise money for children's burn hospitals. Yeah, they're practically Satan incarnate.

Masons don't pray individually in lodges. They have group prayers, and since (most) Masonic groups admit Jews, Muslims and Deists to their ranks, generic God prayers avoid sectarian bickering.

There are some Masonic subgroups that are Christian-only and emphatically so. The Knights Templar are the biggest example. They have big celebrations on Easter weekend and Ascension Day, as well as the feast days of St. John the Evangelist and John the Baptist. One of the more active Knights I know is an Anglican priest.

If anything, the RR crowd are even more deficient in critical thinking than they were when I first became aware of them 6 years ago.

"Masons do not allow the name Jesus be used in their prayers in their lodges."

Is it that they never allow it or that there's no reason for it. Y'see, in the real world people don't bring up Jesus on every topic, construct every activity with observance to Christ or build every aspect of their lives around some stupid church shit.

There are millions of rituals people are involved in that have no religious context, there's no reason to consider Football or Nascar noble and just because some waste of time priest leads you in the same damn prayer you say every day.

The Masons are a charitable social club, not a religion. They accept members from all faiths, and those belong to no faith as well.

4/9/2013 8:14:29 PM


Freemasons do not alloy atheist members. I bet you like them now.

4/10/2013 4:08:13 PM

Fine let's have Pagan prayers. Why are you so offended? It speaks volumes and tells us all we need to know. Then again when Christians discuss non Christians it tells us quite a lot about them. That they don't understand non Christians and aren't very educated about us and not very intelligent in general.
