    I am a Mason and have been for 6 years or so now. Just by watching the folks on this forum, some of the things I've seen members do for one another and the level of trust between members have put me in the mind of many of the virtues espoused by my fraternity. Some would call it basic human courtesy and gentlemanly behaviour, but in my experience common courtesy in these times is not exactly common.

    If you choose not to respond publicly, I understand (you can still shoot me a PM), but I was just curious as to whether any of the Brotherhood of the Briar are members of other brotherhoods as well. Lions, Oddfellows, Masons, W.O.W etc.

    In the interest of good faith, I'm a Texas Mason and a member of the Scottish Rite (32°) and a Knight Templar.

    Wow, I just sent off emails to the Freemasons and Lions Club here in Virginia asking about membership, came back to the forums and this post was added, kinda cool but kinda freaky.

    I am a brother of a certain fraternity of men but I am not allowed to say what it is. But in college I joined the Kappa Sigma fraternity and I am a brother for life.

    Keep trying, bambam. I don't know about the Lions, but perseverance with the MAsons usually pays off. If you do end up petitioning, let me know.

    I grew up around a Lions club and around here, there are Freemasons, which I have a cousin that is a member, and a Moose Lodge about 15 minutes from here. Never really gave it much thought on becoming a member, though.

    Don't you have to have military service with most of them?

    I can't speak for any fraternities of which I'm not a member, but there are a lot of ex-military Masosns, but it is not a requirement.

    Every group has secrets, just like every company has proprietary knowledge that they don't want other companies to know. Most Masonic secrets exist to prevent infiltration and the formation of clandestine lodges. As for the lore associated with it, more myth abounds than truth.

    Bubba, if security is so tight that you can't mention the name of your club, shouldn't you not even mention that you're a member of ANY club? Otherwise you're just saying "I have a secret but I can't tell you!"

    Good luck seanz. kennerth, I'm not aware of any Masonic pipe-smoking postures, but there are ways I could tell regardless of whether someone was smoking or not (That is, if they are trying to be recognized).

    Like if he was smoking this pipe.

    It always amazed me when the Mason guys I use to work with tried keeping all these little secrets to themselves, so I found a book at the library that was 863 pages long on everything you would want to know about it, that same book used to be available in a catalog I use to get at my house and you could buy it for 14.95 back in the 80's

    Most of it supports the Illusion of Superiority.

    Thirty second is the last one,....there's a 33rd, but it's a gift given for service.

    And there is nothing that goes on in the lodge or anywhere else that hasn't been shared with the world.
    The secrets are all a tongue in cheek sorta thing.

    Fine organizations,....but just not for everyone.

    What Tommy said.... the 32 is the last, the 33rd is honorary only....and there are no secrets left. I have seen them all on the history and discover channel, some right, some wrong... fine organizations by far... if being one is wrong, I will never be right.

    Hobie, you'd be surprised how not-secret most Masonic secrets really are. Especially in today's age of the Internet. Things most people don't know about Masons: In The U.S. Each Grand lodge (mostly at state level)is independent and has its own Constitution. It is not subject to any other lodge in any other place. All leadership positions are elected democratically and usually last only for 1 year. The highest "rank" you can achieve is 3rd Degree (Master MAson). After that, all other appendant bodies are voluntary or honorary. In order to join a Masonic Lodge, you only need 3 things: 1. Belief in a Supreme Being 2. Meet legal age requirement (18 or 21 depending upon the state) 3. Be of good moral character. That's it. You also have to be voted into the lodge by members of that lodge. There may also be residence requirements based on jurisdiction.
    The only Masonic Order that requires you affirm a brlief in Christ is the Knights Templar, for obvious reasons.

    None of what I typed here is "secret", it is actually what I tell people who express an interest.

    Decided to bump this since there have been a lot of new members in the last couple months. Any Freemasons, WOW, Oddfellows, Lions, Moose, etc?? As previously posted, I have been a Master Mason for 5 years and am a member of both the York and Scottish Rites. Of 2 brothers I work with, one smokes a pipe (He's a Prince Hall Mason) and the other is trying to kick cigs, but enjoys cigars and I'm converting him to the dark side!

    For anyone not sure of what Order of the Arrow is, it is the honorary society in the Boy Scouts of America, for both scouts and leaders. I was a member of this myself. It is based on Indian lore and many of the lessons and ceremonies are based on traditions of the Delaware Indians. Very much a great place to be as a young scout. I was Brotherhood. Once I got my Eagle Scout I became less active and never got my Vigil. Vigil is the highest rank in OA and you can only achieve it by being nominated and voted in by other Vigils, unless this has changed.

    I have had high interest becoming a Mason. I was close to actually visiting my local lodge to become a member then my son was born and just never went back. Been almost a year now. This thread has reminded me so seek it out again.

    About a year ago, I became very interested in the Masons and I read a few books that made me even more interested. Unfortunately, I was going through a divorce and that derailed any free time I had. I really believe in what they stand for, from my limited exposure and would like to look into this a little more. About 2 years ago on a biz trip, there was a big group of masons having a meeting (they were all Philippine) and in telling my father the story, he told me that my grandfather was a Mason. I'm not sure where to start but I'd be interested in learning more.

    Member of the Craft and the Royal Scarlet Chapter of the Orange Order. Family tradition I guess, I don't hold to any anti-Catholic sentiment like the old timers but I do think my forefathers who were Ulster Scots did a lot of good for the world and want to celebrate my history. My best friend is Catholic and we both get a good laugh about it since he belongs to the Knights of Columbus.

    Go DeMolay! I was MC of my chapter in the Eighties.

    I took my three degrees in 1995, and the Lodge pretty much saved my life after getting divorced. I attended every single meeting, went thru the York Rite and attended all those meetings, even traveled with the Grand Lecturer. All that kept me out of the bars and out of trouble until I could get level again.

    Then, after a contentious year as Master of my Lodge, I had to take a break. I hope to get on a limited basis one day.

    I've always been interested in becoming a mason but never followed up on it. Also the first time I saw Shriners was at the St. Pat's parade in Savannah and I was like damn I want to be one of them. lol

    In my experience, Masonry (and most other fraternal organizations) are slowly dying out. Young men don't have the time to dedicate to them, and the old heads are ... um... dying.

    That said, this world has a desperate need for more young men to embrace and live by fraternal principles - that is, the golden rule, empathy for your fellow humans, and making an effort to leave the world a better place. Masonic charities donate well over $300 million annually to their causes.

    Those of you who have expressed interest, or have Masonic relatives, ought to follow up on the thought. I'd be glad to answer any question I can thru PM or email, and I'll bet Baron or any of the others here would, too. I am no longer an active Mason, but I firmly believe that Masonry makes good men better!

    As a Mason, I proudly just received my 25 year pin from my local lodge. This year will also be my 25th year as a 32nd degree mason in the Scottish Rite.

    Never regretted one minute of my membership or involvement.

    Highly recommend persons of good character petition this Brotherhood. You might actually learn something about yourself and mankind in the process................

    Congratulations to all my Masonic brothers on this forum. I have been a Master Mason for 44 years, and left for Vietnam the day after I was raised. Somewhere along the way I went through the Scottish Rite, and received the 32nd degree, and the York Rite (chapter and council.) I am currently serving as Worshipful Master of Temple Lodge #16, in Cheshire, Connecticut. I love being a Mason, and have learned, and taught many valuable moral lessons in the course of my years in the Craft. My motto for my year in the East is "it's great to be a mason," and my goal is to make sure that every member of the Lodge leaves the meeting with that thought in mind.

    i have been very curious about the masons and joining, however everyone i know (which is like one) is very secretive and wont say much. i have thought about just calling but all i know about them is what the history channel says....and i dont want to join something that would make me join NWO or become jack the rippers cousin.(history channel bad joke) so i would like some real light shed also

    My grandfather was a Mason. My grandmother told me once that he simply stopped going and never went back. I intend to join in hope to establish myself further as a person.
