Message:: Greetings Brethren. First, thank you to the author(s) of
this site. I'm always seeking the truth and it's good to know that
there is a resource that I can examine and evaluate against what I've
previously learned or unlearned. I am interested in meeting brothers
and visiting lodges in other places as I travel fairly often. If you
wouldn't mind extending an invitation to me so that I would have a point
of contact, it would be most appreciated. Thanx in advance.
RQFC-topic: all things masonic
RQFC Details: as an African-American, many of us don't know the truth
and believe the New World Order and satanic misinformation that abounds.
I myself was uncertain as to the link b/t masonry and the NWO before
being entered. I've been researching as evident that I came upon this
site. Any other info. you can share would be appreciated.
