Please visit the web site www.chick
to see what your cult is all about.

Look for tract on Masonry.

This is a religious cult.  I will be personally handing out tracts to
the lodge members I meet at work and on the street.
The secret about your so-called rituals will be exposed.

Expose away, you lunatic fringe. Your narrow brand of hate will always poison a few unfortunate minds with the filth of segregation, ignorance, suspicion, and sectarian warfare.

The rest of us will be glad to practice peace, tolerance, ecumenism, and freedom of conscience, while you try to drag the world back to the horrors of the Inquisition.

Thank you for writing.

Web-master's note: Hmmm... I guess I'm all out of patience for these ignorant clods. It used to be entertaining, but by now they're repetitive and annoying.

Here's a hint: if you're planning to write to me because some pamphlet or hairy-eared teevee lunatic gave you the One True Word that Masonry is being run by The Devil or The New World Order, or some combination thereof, save your time and mine and don't bother. It isn't. But I'll bet the lunatic is also asking you to send him money, isn't he?

I'm sure that some of my more charitably-minded and patient brethren may want to write to Mr. Howell, to give him an opportunity to know more about Masonry.
