    Hi
    What is your view on Freemasonry?
    Anyone here a Freemason?
    I have interest in joining but there isn't really a stance that the Anglican communion have on this group.
    thank

    I used to admire them. When I was in JROTC, I attended several of the same events that they did. They seemed to be good people. Now I seriously prefer to stay away from them. Freemasonry is incompatible with orthodox Christian faith.

    It's pretty much a high school military prep program. If I remember correctly, if you were a member of the program and enlisted in any branch of the military, it allowed you to graduate boot camp/recruit training a rank ahead of those that weren't.

    Lots of what we did was commumity service (marching in parades and the like), and Freemasons happened to be at a lot of these events.

    Thank you. I'm sure the masons were probably there somewhere

    You Roman Catholics would probably be delighted to know of the Fatima Movement, who claim that the third secret of Fatima is that Mary is God, and God the Father is actually Satan. They are sedevecantists and believe that the modern papacy and claims of the Roman church are all a huge Masonic lie, and pray in the name of the Mother, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. You might find their claims of Sister Lucia being replaced amusing:

    Mary's God, huh? I wonder how they feel about it taking 1900 years to get that very important detail?

    My dear brother in Christ, my prayer for you is that The Christ Child may fill your heart with peace.

    Thanks, but I should be fine. I am not trying to say that this is what Catholics teach at all, but simply showing it so we can laugh together at the absurdity of it all! :laugh:
