Mason

So everyones heard of masons, there are mason churches and buildings in most towns, but. In all honesty who are they? What do they do? What if I went in and sat down in the masons church? What if I wanted to become a Mason? I’ve heard all of the theorys that 80% of our presidents were masons, but what is actually true, and what do they stand for. Essentially — Well, to start with Freemasonry is not a religion, and our buildings are not churches. Yes, some- depending on their age and architectural style- are called temples, but temple as a word describes a place of instruction, and does not necessarily have a religious context. What Freemasonry is- is a fraternity in which men study and apply to their lives timeless lessons of morality. It is an organization which is based on and promotes education, honesty, honor, liberty, and good character. Usually these virtues are expressed by Masons through active civic participation and charitable support. Generally, anyone is free to enter a Lodge during banquets or social functions. More often than not these are open to the public. Our business meetings are members only, like any other organization. Any man of good reputation, lawful age, who believes and has faith in a Supreme Creator, (along with a few other qualifications that differ a little place to place) and has a real desire to become a mason of his own free will- may apply for membership in the fraternity. 14 of the 44 US Presidents have been Masons, the last was Ford. 5 other US Presidents have been anti-Masons- Nothing spectacular of either statistic. Any other questions? Just ask.

    1) there are no mason churches. . . masonry is a fraternity not a religion, there is no worship in freemasonry. 2) freemasonry is a fraternity, it studies morality to provide its members with the instruction to make themselves better; and it provides more charity than any other group on the planet 3) to join masonry just ask a mason 4) freemasonry stands for fatherhood of God, brotherhood of man; individual liberty, freedom, faith, hope and charity nothing more, nothing less. anyone who tells you otherwise is ignorant or lying.

    Everyone may have heard about Masons, but very few people have actually learned anything at all about Freemasonry. There are no Masonic churches, but there are certainly Masonic buildings, Temples and Lodges in most towns. We're not a secret organization, we're a Fraternity that can be found on the internet, in the phone book, and by looking for the big building that with the Square and Compasses on it. If we were a secret organization, we'd suck at it after advertising where we are, when we meet, and how to contact us. Freemasonry makes good men better. We support and participate in our communities. We are the largest and oldest fraternity and charitable institution in the world. If you want to know more about what Freemasons do, go to your local Lodge and ask. If you went and sat down in a masons church . . . you'd be the only one there; we don't have churches. If you went and sat down in a Masonic Lodge . . . well, it depends. If it was a public event, you'd be welcomed (and probably fed. We're big on food). If it were a private or business meeting, you'd be politely asked to leave. Just like you'd be asked to leave a shareholder's meeting if you weren't a shareholder in that company. If you want to become a Mason, you ask to join. If you've heard 'theories' about the number of president that were masons . . . well, you've been listening in the wrong places. The Presidents who were Freemasons were: George Washington, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, Warren Harding, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Gerald R. Ford, and Lyndon Johnson.
