Hi folks. I know I said I would set this up this afternoon, but I had some time to do it before work this morning. I woke up early. Thank the Good Lord for insomnia, huh?:supergrin:

Eric and I are a bit leery and feel tenuous about setting up clubs that are segmented and a bit secretive from everyone else. It tends to draw the worse from others that aren't included.

Eric and I ask that you all understand we will try this club on a trial basis and see how it goes. If you all help out and keep things civil, things will pan out. We really want to see this place fly and we will need everyone's help for that to happen.

Meanwhile enjoy your forum and the best of luck.

Eddie C.

I for one agree, this is NOT the place for sniping, angry responses or secretive actions. This club should be for information and exchange of ideas. I think it would be irresponsible for those who petitioned for this club to allow it to descend into some unacceptable position.

There are plenty of other sights out there for bashing, and other activities.

What a great combo - Glocks, 2A Rights and a space to discuss and learn about a topic several are interested in without bothering others.

Very well put. That's the best approach to take here.

Thanks to Eric and the crew for giving this a shot. Now, it's up to us to make the most of this chunk of bandwith with our names on it. :banana: :thumbsup:

1. Because it's his site.
2. No, "masonship" is not a religion.

Congratulations on the lodge here on GT, gentlemen.

Perhaps I might soon join you. In the meantime I may ask some questions here and there.

Hope I am not out of line but I thought I would post this for anyone that might want to know. I got these cards for my lodge and I really like them

What Masonry is:
It is a voluntary association of men
It is a system of moral conduct
It is a way of life
It is a fraturnal society
It is religious in its character
It teaches the Golden Rule
It seeks to make good men better
It teaches morality through symbolism
It uses rites and ceremonies to instruct its members
It is based on a firm belief in the Fatherhood of God,
the Brotherhood of Man,
and the Immortality of the soul

What Masonary is NOT:
It does not solicit members
It is not an insurance or benefit society
It is neither a religion nor a creed nor a religious order
It is not a charity organization, but makes charity a duty
It is not organized for profit
It dictates to no man as to his beliefs, either religious or secular
It seeks no advantages for its members through buisness or politics
It is not a forum for discussion of religion, politics or other
partisan affairs
It is not a secert society, as it does not conceal its existance or
purposes.


This came from a card from the Grand Lodge of Texas

Hey everyone. I've been interested in becoming a part of this brotherhood since I can remember. I grew up with both my dad and grandfather convinced that the Masons are the "Pillars that hold up Hell!" Their contempt never rubbed off on me, quite the contrary, it really stirred my interest. From what I can tell, the way that I try to live my life as a Christian and a believer in "the greater good" is very parallel to the missions stated above by the Masons. I think I would make a good one. I see bumper stickers that say "2B1Ask1", but how do I go about asking? Should I just look for a guy with a ring, or can I just drop in to the local chapter? Will I get blackballed for even asking this question?

I'd suggest finding a lodge close to you, calling and either leaving a message or speaking to the Secretary. Let him know that you're interested in joining the Fraternity and he'll tell you how to proceed. Usually we ask that you know a member of the lodge, but when I joined I knew nobody from the lodge I was interested in. After a couple of sit down's with the Secretary and other members I was voted on and accepted.

There are several Lodges in the Metro Houston area and the Grand Lodge of Texas has a web-site. It is a wonderful organization that I have been a member of for 32 years. I was a member of DeMolay from age 14-21. I was raised when I was 25 years old. I am a memver of 3 Blue Lodges in Texas, The Scottish Rite, The York Rite, Commandary, The Shrine, and the Grotto.

I am a Deputy Sheriff with the Sheriff's Dept in Fort Worth, Texas. I travel out of state on extraditions. I have been able to attend Lodge meetings in other states. My pardner and I had an occasion to attend an Eastern Star meeting in Jackson, Mississippi. The members were dressed as men and put on their interpetation of what goes on during a Masonic Lodge meeting. It was hilarious.
