Just thought I would open the door to discussion on gay guys within freemasonry
mixtape saidThis seems very gay.
Zadokien saidI was raised in a free mason home. My foster father was a master mason and used to go to the meetings very often. I was invited to associate myself with the lodge, but I never got truly interested in doing that. But I always thought freemasonry was a very curious subject of study. And I read as much as I could about it.
NoCityGuy saidI'm not a Freemason but my father is an officer of his lodge. I have been to the temple in Alexandria, VA and found it interesting. But it wasn't for me. At least not yet, LOL. I do like the founding principles and what they believe and stand for. I certainly don't think my father is a Satanist and is kissing guys anuses either.

It is quite interesting that a lot of people confuse lodge with the Orange Lodge which is basically a group of sectarian bigots, freemasons are god loving people and people who think we are satanists just dont understand what its all about! Would your father tell you if he was a bum kisser? lol
DodgedBullet saidOn the Anti-Gay forums that I post at they believe that Freemasonry and Homosexuality (male) has a link. It's not meant to be a positive link though. They believe that they have underground sex orgies and Satanic rituals and are trying to promote Homosexuality to the good ol' Heterosexual citizens of America.
NCReal06 saidI know of one other Freemaison Holyrood, He's a Brit too actually. It does sound interesting. And if you need some help w/ the kissing on the bumm let me know, I'll got to the lodge with you. I can't promise I wouldn't go for the french kiss. HAHAHAHA
ErikTaurean saidMy knowledge of the freemasons or simply the Masons comes from my childhood when I was growing up. I know more about the Order of the Eastern Star than I do about Masonry After my parent's divorce, my mom and I moved in with her parents. Both were active members of their sects. But there were more women in my family involved in and holding high office positions with the Order of the Eastern Star than the men in the Masons. Being raised in the south, I knew that, at least in the South Carolina and surrounding southern areas, the masons were divided along racial lines that go all the way back to emancipation. My grandfather, being the father of 3 girls, did not really talk about Masonry with his 5 grandsons and I was the only one who seemed interested in it to him. The granddaughters did begin to go towards the eastern star realm, but lost interest when we all grew up and went off to school. I do remember, as a kid, being fascinated with all the secrecy and pomp & circumstance surrounding the groups.
