    Depends on the lodge master, but considering your lineage you should be ok. You'd need two of those family members to stand for you.

    No they don't. I've met a few black Masons and apparently they have a line of ranks that require you to be Catholic to be able to gain that rank. It all comes down to how 'immoral' they think you are.

    And that is when burns becomes obsessed with protecting himself from bacteria no?

    Proposal, now.

    Edit: Is that also the same episode when Homer is treated like a messiah coz of his birthmark? And ends up him running a lodge of monkeys?

    Sorry - but this statement is just inaccurate. I know black, Hispanic, Asian, Jewish, Islamic, Catholic, and Protestant Free Masons. Masonry is open to any monotheistic man. Masonry is fundamentally Universalist - and therefore open to followers of all the great monotheistic religions (Jews, Christians, Muslims).

    If you want to say anything - many people would suggest is to accurate to say that Masonry has not opened their ranks to women or atheists.

    There are secret societies within Masonry - but Masonry as a whole is a pretty open book.

    All is True and Level

    Yes they do.

    Most are Protestant - tend to be rather anti-Catholic,mostly a Deistical, Rational Universalist bunch. Lovely bunch of people. There is also a huge overlap between traditional Unitarianism/ Free Christianity and Freemasonry.

    You need to get recommended by two Lodge Members who know you and are in Good Standing with the Lodge and then your application is voted on in a secret ballot.

    Interesting fact: You cannot be a Freemason and be a Member of the Methodist Church or a Lay Reader in the Church of England/Anglican Church.

    To the OP, I don't know if they take in out gay guys, but I definitely had sex with the head of a Masonic chapter in his lodge office.
