    Note: Freemasonry is neither a political nor a religious organization and we are discouraged from discussing such topics in our lodges (much like here) therefore, this should not violate any of the site rules.

    So having said that, are there any Masonic transfans out there? I joined the fraternity back in 08, raised in 09 and joined Scottish Rite and then Eastern Star with my parents. Most of my family is Masonically affiliated so for me it's kind of a family tradition.

    Hey man, don't talk about things without THE HANDSHAKE! You can't forget the handshake. Can't let 'normals' in on the secrets after all.

    I'm not a Freemason. My great grandfather was - he was 33rd rank. His son, my grandfather, was 3rd. My brother was contemplating being one for a bit there. So I fall in the close but no cigar I guess...

    Never forget the handshake!

    33rd is pretty impressive. It's honorary, only conferred on those who are elected to receive it. My grandfather and father are both Masons, in fact, when my father joined, my grandfather gave him his ring, which my father then passed to me when I joined. I also have several uncles and cousins that are members too.

    My dad was the head of his lodge back in 2004-2007. He's still a member

    I misread the thread title as being about TF Mosaic. Damn you, Dislek- Dizleck- Disslekt- not being able to read proper!

    I vaguely remember my brother-in-law being in something like this. Dunno if it was the actual Masons. Do they let the Welsh join? If not then it wasn't.

    As long as this stays on topic, it's okay. Freemasonry, to my knowledge, is not a religion or a cult, so we're good, but do not try and steer the conversation to be about whether or not Freemasonry is a religion.

    As a Freemason myself, I can 100%, completely and totally garuantee that Freemasonry is not a religion. It's a fraternity, not unlike what you find in most universities, the difference being that our fraternity has been around a lot longer and has a lot more members.

    Also, yes, there are Welsh Freemasons.

    Also, if anyone has questions about the fraternity, who we are, what we do, I will be willing to answer any questions as long as they don't violate the site rules (ie: no religion or politics).
