I believe this rumor came about because a disproportionate number of the Sgt's Maj. was masons, but the point is it was not true. later in my career I became very good friends with a couple of masons, and I use to tease them about secret hand shakes etc. and in jest I said something to the effect that they could get out of tickets by being a Mason (ha-ha) With a very stoic look on his face, my friend turned to me and said yes it dose every day. Thinking I had trapped him or fooled him in to revealing some trade craft I howled with laughter and shouted I knew it. In response he answered that the Masonic embalm on my truck reminds me (ME NOT YOU) that I am a mason and that I don’t want to do anything to bring discredit to the lodge and the brethren. Humbled I looked more to my left and right to learn more about it. The idea is to make a good man better. I went in to free masonry as a christen and would not betray my faith in the lord my god for any reason. I would ask you when the last time you were passed by some one was driving 100 MPH with a mason embalmed on their vehicle. What specific transgression has a mason ever done you in the name of free masonry? As christens we become targets of secular society and every transgression is pointed at and ridiculed. but being christens dose not make us Christ like but is simply a profession that we desire to be like Christ and being masons dose not make us perfect we simply desire to be better men. as for this Dr. you quote, don’t know him, never read his book but I would say don’t take his word find out for your self. Beware the false profit.
Roaddoglm , With respect Officer My point is not runing 100 MPH, if the speed limit is 55 and you are going 56 then you have broken the law so with that in mind if the officer is a mason and the law breaker is one as well their supposed to let you ride . If you are not this kind of officer then my hats off to you and you do your job well .
Finn , I am not saying that if anyone is a mason they are not a christian we are all born a sinner and that is what will send one to hell you must be born again!
The information that I'm going to post in a few days will be coming from a book that explains a baptist preachers dad that was also a baptist preacher he was at the top in the masons this information is not bias to either side but simply states the facts about masons in a respectful way . It will also say what happens when you tell their secrets. I will post the name of the book so if anyone is interested they can obtain a copy after reading this it will change your view on the masons . I will also post some of the rules and what page that it is on .
