Most of them are garbage. With this said, the abundance of these threads prompted me looking deeper into the matter. </p> <p>As a result, I found some disconcerting things about Freemasonry that I would hope I can receive an answer for. </p> <p>During my research I found out about a man called William Morgan. According to a source Lucien V. (1912). Pioneering in Masonry: The Life and Times of Rob Morris, Masonic Poet. Louisville, KY: Brandt &amp; Connors Company. p. 70 a Sheriff, Eli Bruce, who is known to be a Mason was removed from his office then tried and sentenced for his role in Mr Morris’s disappearance. There were also other Masons that were tried and convicted in relation to the same offence. </p> <p>Furthermore, according to the Commons Select Committee about the child sexual abuse in Rotherham UK (2nd September 2014) there was some masonic involvement. </p> <p>Now I shall be frank. This kind of carry on would implicate Freemasonry as a criminal enterprise. In all honesty I feel fear when posting this because of the information I have read and this should not be so. </p> <p>My question is therefore this, in the light of the evidence I have provided above, why should I not carry a belief that Freemasonry is a wholly criminal organisation?</p> <p>Thank you. </p> 2018-04-11T16:08:58-05:00 Other than freemasonry http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12052/ http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12052/#When:13:10:14Z <p>Is there anyway, or any other organization to get my feet wet BEFORE becoming a Freemason?

I want to build a future, etc… And etc lol peace </p> 2018-04-24T13:10:14-05:00 freemason Philippines http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12058/ http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12058/#When:08:01:10Z <p>Hi good day my name is mark im from Philippines, how can i join masonic lodge </p> <p>anyone can assist me </p> <p>Thanks </p> 2018-05-09T08:01:10-05:00 Regalia eBay or online shops http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12056/ http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12056/#When:09:28:37Z <p>Hello</p> <p>I am after some regalia. When I checked online, there are plenty of reputable masonic shops but also eBay.</p> <p>The photos look the same. I think everybody is using some stock pictures. </p> <p>However, price is not the same. Masonic websites are at least P more expensive. I would pay more for quality regalia but if it’s to get the same thing I can find on eBay, it doesn’t make sense to pay more.</p> <p>I would like to know if you have any experience with that. </p> 2018-05-08T09:28:37-05:00 Join to Spanish Mason organization in San Francisco California http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12055/ http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12055/#When:13:28:09Z <p>Hello,</p> <p>I would like to join in a Mason organization in San Francisco California, but I want to know if a Spanish speaking organization is operating in this area.</p> <p>Thank you, </p> 2018-05-03T13:28:09-05:00 Becoming a Scottish Rite Mason. http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12053/ http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12053/#When:02:27:08Z <p>My father and I are both Master Masons in Texas. On June 1st and 2nd we will be driving to Austin to take part in the reunion. My question is once completed are you given an apron,hat or any other<br /> Masonic regalia? </p> 2018-04-30T02:27:08-05:00 Can you be gay or bisexual and a Freemason? http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12043/ http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12043/#When:05:02:34Z <p>Hey everyone, hope you are well. </p> <p>I am interested in finding out if being homosexual or bisexual would preclude a man from joining as a Freemason? </p> <p>I’m aware that persons in lodges could have different understandings about such matters, however, is there a generalised position on this? </p> <p>Best, </p> 2018-03-31T05:02:34-05:00 to join the organisation http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12051/ http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12051/#When:11:13:39Z <p>i want to join the freemason brothers.<br /> i am from morocco i have 56 year old.<br /> i am a teacher </p> 2018-04-15T11:13:39-05:00 The Movable and Immovable Jewels http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12044/ http://www.masonforum.com/viewthread/12044/#When:09:15:05Z <p>The EA Tracing board talks about Movable and Immovable Jewels.</p> <p>Now in the Grand Lodge of India as well as in the United Grand Lodge of England, Grand Lodge of Scotland, Grand Lodge of Ireland, and Grand Lodges in Australia the movable jewels are the Square, the Level and the Plumb Rule whereas the immovable jewels are the Tracing Board, the Rough and Perfect Ashlars (based on the ritual charges gathered from these lodges)</p> <p>The reasons for the same are:</p> <p>The movable jewels are called movable because they are worn by the Master and his Wardens and transferable to their successors on the night of Installation.<br /> The immovable jewels called immovable because they lie open and immovable in the Lodge for the Brethren to moralise upon.</p> <p>While reading the book Freemasonry by Giles Morgan, I found that in US (or at least in some parts of US) the lodges have interchanged the jewels. So the movable jewels are the Tracing board, the Rough and Perfect Ashlars whereas the immovable jewels are the Square, the Level, and the Plumb Rule.</p> <p>May I know what are/might be the reasons for such an interchange? </p> 2018-04-03T09:15:05-05:00
