TBWCYL Day 350 - Mason mania

I was supposed to join the Freemasons yesterday. The Book had a form and everything. 2 problems with this. First, you had to have 2 Masons recommend you for entry, and two, Masons are F-ing crazy and I am afraid of them.

They are a secret society of people that don't let anyone into their inner circle. It is like Scientology except older. I have always been fearful of them and their ways. I saw Skulls with Joshua Jackson and I don't want to get involved with that crazy crap.

Another issue I have, and probably a reason they would deny my membership is that they have a constitutional declaration of belief in a the Supreme Being. I do not. I can see how that would go.

"Newt, do you claim allegiance to the Supreme Being?"
"erm...No, not really. Can I take a bench on that topic?"
"What?! No! You must pledge allegiance."
"To the Flag? I can do the Flag."
"No, get out of my sight."

It wouldn't be pretty.

That is all,

Oh I read somewhere that almost all the US Presidents pledge to the freemasons...

Wow really. That is not too surprising since it is a huge institution and a lot of influential people are in the Freemasons. That scares me even more.

Also, they had a Christian prayer before the Thanksgiving lunch here in my office. Welcome to the South, where they've vaguely heard of political correctness but want no part of it.

Oh Trin, this made me crack up. "like Scientology except older" And the Sculls reference kind of made my day.
