You beginning to get the idea? (Not you, Philistine; maybe someone clicked here by accident and kept reading.)

I am not saying we need more Masons to get us out of the hole we are in. We need more men and women who have virtues and morals; the same attributes found in Masonry and BTW, all the major spiritual frameworks, the fraternal organizations, any gathering that considers the persons on this list as Good men and share the values they display. These virtues are universal and pretty simple.

Here's more Masons. Notice there are some Black guys, some Jews, some foreigners, some who actually do not have the United States best interests at heart? This is not an American thing, nor a Christian thing. You will see farther on that Masonry is world-wide.

Surprised yet?
