Subject: Why I Joined Freemasonry

Ever since I was a young kid, being raised in my parents faith, I always new in my heart of hearts that a loving God would not exclude a good man, based simply on his choice of religious expression, dogma, color of skin, or ethnicity.

Like most people my age ( 35 ) I first heard of the Craft from negative press, the ravings of the "Aluminum hat" crowd, and various other bigots. It didn't take me long, after visiting a few libraries, and talking to a few Masons, to see through the paranoia to the truth and beauty of Freemasonry, and what it actually represents: a brotherhood of man, democracy, reason, charity,and spiritual development, where ALL men

meet on the Level.

My only regret is that I didn't get join the Masons years ago.
