            Good luck finding out-the "secret" comment is so true.
            My ex's dad was a freemason and my ex was given a cassette about the masons. Don't remember if he got to even listen to it or not-he told his Dad about it, Dad asked to hear it and it was never seen again. I guess it was exposing info about the masons. They came and did some sort of ritual for my father-in-law at his funeral-very odd it was.

              It is good. Yes, it is a society with secrets, but I think most college fraternities have secrets also. Freemasonry is a society of men who share common values, including a belief in God. With that in mind, I have known Christian, Muslim, and Jewish masons. Try to find the Kipling poem either "The Mother Lodge" or "My Mother Lodge". A second option is talk to some masons. They can not tell you "the secrets", but they will tell you about freemasonry. The primary goal of myself and the masons I know is to make ourselves better people, and to assist those in need.

                There's a big Masonic presence in "National Treasure" too!

                Great flick!

                  My grandpa was a Mason, and they did a ritual for him at his funeral too. I was actually very touched by it, even though I didn't understand the ritual.

                    As a Master Mason for the past 5 years I cannot indulge on any secrets as a part of my degree. However what I can tell you is that there are really no secrets. Ideally we are god fearing men who respect our forefathers and support our country. Some still believe that it is a secret society. Depending on your department heads, who may still believe this. Traditionally African Americans or women cannot be true masons. There is a sect of women members, however they are not allowed in lodge meetings. The same holds true for african american males, they would not be allowed to be apart of the lodge, and infact their lodges would be considered "clandestine." I don't agree with this, and is probably one of the reasons why I no longer attend functions.

                      In North Carolina there is nothing official that prevents an African American from joining an AF and AM lodge, and there are in fact some members. In North Carolina, there also exists F and AM lodges, which are also called Prince Hall Lodges. F and AM lodges are predominantly African American membership. I have no wish to go into a long discourse about a subject that I have limited knowledge about. I will say that there is a consistent movement to bring the 2 lodges closer together without either lodge losing its distinct heritage and history. I also will say that within the bounds of my obligation as an AF and AM mason, I believe the members of both lodges exemplify the spirit of freemasonry, which is based on brotherly love and concern for your fellow man.

                            I've been a freemason for 5 years now. The freemasons have been around for over a 2 thousand years.
