Default Freemasonry

For some reason I am both intrigued and terrified by this practice. There is a f*cking masonic lodge right next to my old home. I've done a bit of research, but does anyone have any first-hand knowledge of this cult? They seem innocuous to the unsuspecting, but they are believed to have Satanic influences. Also, I believe they could be related to the Biblical prophesies about the Anti-Christ and the establishing of his New World Order.

That lodge next to your old house is a frat house for old people. I have friends whose fathers are high level Masons and those individuals definitely do not rule the world.

Have you questioned them about their beliefs? what they do in private? How do they determine levels and how high up are they in the hierarchy? I don't mean to be nit-picky.

Wow you are so misinformed. The Branch Davidians is a cult.

They are a secret society, not a cult.

There is actually a masonic church by my old high school.

Also, does anyone know why these people are obsessed with owls? The giant owl in the Bohemian Grove. The owl on the dollar bill.

And what distinguishes them as such?

If by beliefs you mean religion, they are Catholic. I've never been curious enough to invade their privacy by asking what their fathers, grandfathers, etc. do in their private time, but I suppose I can ask. It just never seemed important to me to ask because I don't believe in the Freemason conspiracy stuff. I believe they determine levels based on the proficiency of the ritual, but I can be wrong. I'll talk to one of my friends and get back with more information.

I think they operate as a sort of shadow govt. more localized than probably international

My uncle and Grandad were both offered to join them and declined (they worked on the county council) and so had a modicum of local civil authority.

I know someone whose boss was a Mason and when he was pulled over for being drunk did the old mason hanshake to the police and was let go cos most police are masons.

Anyone ever heard of Albert Pike? This dude was a freemason & said the agenda was to provoke 3 world wars to form a one world gorvernment. The things he says are shockingly coming true. He also said Satan would be revealed to the public in World War III.

That's exactly what I am talking about. A secret society making selective offers to outsiders (especially those with authoritative powers)? Sounds like strategic expansion.
