Would you care to debate issues or just assinate character?

Is that some sort of don't-ask-don't-tell thing?

"I thought William Bedford Forrest founded the KKK?"

Albert Pike is said to have founded the KKK but Freemasons dispute that and they dispute that he was one of the early leaders. Nathan Bedford Forrest was one of the early leaders but from what I have read was not the founder of the KKK.

What in the world is a 249th degree in the Masonic Lodge. They sure didn't have one when my father was alive and I can't find a Mason alive who ha heard of it.

You should JOIN the "Know Nothing" Political Party

If you FLAMERS EVER get a clue, and open a history book, you might learn who the "Know Nothing" party was.

Or what happened in Italy with the P2 Lodge, or England.

It's NOT a conspiracy any more than ISLAM is a conspiracy.

Its just plain old STUPID.

this person is heavily influence by fiction and ignorant ravings of false disinformation. he also refuses to seek the truth - he'd rather spout viritol and ignorance (yes IGNORANCE) than learn the facts about his mouthings.

Being a conservative, traditional Roman Catholic, (which is apparently an anomaly in today's unpolite society)I have nothing to do with Masonry. Excepting, of course, when I want to lay some tiles.

I believe that many who are Masons mean well and if you speak to them of what Masonry has been doing beind the scenes forever they'll find it difficult to believe you.

Even if they know the truths about Masonic evildoing they'll, of course, deny it and begin to heap abuse at you in an attempt to discredit what you say.

While I'm not happy at how the Left is trying to misrepresent the separation of Church and State, the underlying premise works for me! I don't want the Pope or Jerry Falwell writing our country's laws.

You gotta realize that certain preachers don't like competition. If the church members realize that they really do get along with their neighbors who don't belong to their congregation, then certain preachers are going to be out of a job.

You are indeed right.

But check out how VITRIOLIC the flame was back on the Freemason side....

you can detect the gay/liberal bias, now open your eyes to the Freemason propaganda machine, which includes the "Shriner" good works program.

I am NOT afraid of any masons - they should be afraid that there IS a God and he is NOT something to be tampered with.

I think you are generalizing a bit. Albert Pike might have been a Mason but so was George Washington, Paul Revere, Ben Franklin, Booker Washington, and Martin Luther King were Masons. Were they all part of the conspiracy?

As was my grandfather, who also happened to be deacon in his Presbyterian church and was one of the most decent men and as devout a christian you could have found anywhere. This is BS.

TITLE: Shriner's Convention

Yeah, they come down Main Street, drums a flailing
Sirens a-wailin', what a roar
Bands are a-playin' and flags are a-wavin'
And the vanguard's a motorcycle corps
Clowns are a-clownin' through the crowd and pinchin'
Every pretty girl who dares to smile
It's a glorious mess, everybody wears a fez
The parade stretches out for miles
{Refrain}
It's a typical American phenomenon
Where all the members have a fine old time
It's the forty-third annual convention
Of the Grand Mystic Royal Order
Of the Nobles of the Ali Baba Temple of the Shrine
Meanwhile back at the Motel
Bubba
Operator, give me room three-twenty-one, please. Hello? Noble Lumpkin?
This here's the 'Lustr'ous Potentate. I said it's the 'Lustr'ous
Potentate. The Illustr'ous... Coy? Dad-blame it, this here's Bubba.
Coy, why ain't you at the parade? What? Well, how'd you get that big
Harley up there in your room? What? I cain't hear ya, Coy, quit
revvin' it up, boy. Turn it off. I just want you to know one thing.
You have embarr'ssed us all, the whole Hahira delegation. Now, I'll see
you at the banquet, son, and you be there, Coy, you hear me? Black tie,
seb'n o'clock. Be there, Coy. And Coy, don't answer the phone
Uddn'uddn.
Well, it was all arranged by the ladies' auxiliary
In the downtown convention hall
Cold roast beef, string beans, mashed potatoes
And nine boring speeches in all
And all the tables looked fine with their Mogan David wine
And chrysanthemums on each side
And the Hahira leaders in their rented tuxedos
Made the local heart swell with pride
{Refrain}
Meanwhile back at the Motel
Bubba
Operator? Three-twenty-one, please. Thank you. Hello, Coy, what are
you doin'? Whaddaya mean, who is this. This is Bubba. Why wasn't you
at the banquet? Whaddaya mean, all you had to wear was a Ha-waiian
flowerdy shirt? Well, you may think you're foolin' some people, but I
know what's goin' on. Everybody's seen the little red-head. 'At's
right, ever'body. Why, she come runnin' through the dinner, right in
the middle of the pineapple sherbert. Didn't have nothin' on but yer
fez, Coy. Coy, you the only one's got a fez with a propeller on top.
Yeah. Yeah, yeah, and she's yellin' out the secret code, too, Coy. We
goin' have to change it now. Dad blame it, Coy, we goin' have to have a
special meetin' we get to Hahira, about yer conduct at this here
convention. Embarr'ssing. Now Coy, you be at the secret conclave
tonight, you hear me? And keep it a secret. Hoo!
Well, it was a secret meeting in the dead of the night
With mysterious sanctimony
In accordance with prescribed rituals
A time-honored ceremony
Matters of grave concern were weighed with dedicated caution
Like whether or not to raise at stud
Or draw at spit-in-the-ocean
{Refrain}
Meanwhile back at the Motel
Bubba
Operator, room three-twenty-... H-how'd you know? Oh. Hello, Coy?
Where h-have you been? No-o-o, you wasn't at the meeting. Well, I
found out that at three o'clock this morning you's out there in your
fruit-of-the looms in the motel swimmin' pool, bunch o' them waitresses
from the cocktail hour. Huh, I just hope Charlene don't find out about
this, Coy. What? Well, how'd you get that big motorsickle up there on
the high dive, Coy? Now Coy, dad burnit, that ain't no way to act. We
s'posed to be pillars of the community. 'N we get back to Hahira, you
can just turn in your ring, and your tie-tack. 'Cause Coy, you are out
of the Shrine. You goin' be blackballed, Coy. 'At's right, you may
have t' pack yer bags and leave town. What do you mean, you might join
the Hell's Angels? Coy, hoo, don't you hang up on me. No, don't you
crank that motorsickle. Who's that gigglin' in the background, Coy?
Hello? Hello? Operator, we's cut off. Yeah, room three-twenty-one.
Coy???
