man, this marks a second time someone i’m close to has professed their desire to want to become a freemason. oooooeeee, what up with that? i said, what’s up, i mean, what’s up with that? what up with that?!!
honest to god, i’ve always gotten a very sinking feeling in my gut whenever the freemasons were mentioned, even as a kid. then, you grow up and get a little more shady, sketchy information under your belt (freemasons, illuminati, et al) and the feeling intensifies.
i know, i know. it’s just a bunch of men who are trying to do good for their community and live by moral principles but for some reason JUST HAVE TO KEEP THEIR RITUALS SECRET AND ONLY ALLOW IN MEN.
there’s just nothing anyone can say that will convince me that’s awesome. or that i should be stoked if my friends tell me they’re all about being freemasons. i’ll just shut the fuck up and let them do their thing, but i’m not going to pretend i think it’s amazingly wonderful. there’s plenty of other ways to get hooked up with god and to do service work that aren’t secret. and that allow women to participate. i just can’t get on board. sorry, guys.
