    Also, remember that it is nearly impossible to prove a negative -- that is when someone says "X" is true, it is seldom possible to prove "X" to be not true to the satisfaction of a believer in "X"'s "truth", no matter how far fetched the claim is.
    It a tough thing to do,but Masonry has taught me tolerance for the uninformed.
    It is pardonable to be defeated but never surprised.

    I cut out a bunch of discussion on Masons being good/bad which is not what the OP started this thread for. Keep it on topic of the original post.

In the same way some people who ride motorcycles and dress like hells angels are far as morally upright and ethically steadfast as Billy Graham.

    I for one would like to extend a warm and friendly hand to anyone or organization wishing to help our fellow man (and woman) better themselves, and help those less fortunate!

    If this thread offends someone please do what I do... don't read it or ignore it.




    Thank you,

    I am Not going to say anything good OR bad as I do not Know Exactly what the Masons are about, Good Bad Or Indifferent

    BUT I will say this in response to what pfcslr said above, JUST because an organization , company, or Government excercises good will or compassion, does not mean it is inherently good, with nothing but the best intentions at heart.
    The Oil corporation Citgo had ads on T V here a while back touting how they donate fund and give to charitable organizations that help out the poor and elderly on fixed incomes with their home heating and such.
    Noble ,Yes, but if you Know who owns Citgo, (the Venezualen government), Ruled By Communist Ceasar Chavez, who would like nothing better than to see the dissintegration and ultimate fall of our Republic we know as the United States of America, and you can understand how some folks may show a little distrust .

    I am going to get this wrong, But many years ago I read in a book about secrets one of the sayings were " Are there anygood men in here?" Any truth?
