A corruption of what? laugh.gif


Lets just say that there are certain District Councils ( not a million miles away ) that have been for many years, controlled by Masons. If you happen to apply for a job and the other candidate is a mason, then you have little or no chance of being successful. Both merit and ability are negated by a handshake. ( catch my drift ) I have witnessed people coming through the door, with little or no experience, and rising through the ranks, to become managers within 4yrs. This has a drastic effect on the morale, of the non masonic existing staff. It impacts greatly on the level and quality of services provided by that Authority. Joe public gets a raw deal ( hey what's new ) The historical beginnings of
this organisation, have been corrupted by the greed and back stabbings, of a petite bourgeoisie, far removed from the original conceptions, of a brotherhood of skilled workers, meeting in secret to discuss working conditions. Early Trade Unionism.

There were several Masons in my family and when I became of age I was recommended to join and somehow ceased to exist when I turned the offer down. I had this feeling that I'd succeed or fail under my own terms in my life.
Failure isnae too bad. tongue.gif biggrin.gif

During my business life I was asked to join the 'Round Table'(This was in Llandudno,Wales) - came Christmas time was told the 'Round table' was gonna decorate 3 old age pensioners homes.
Was asked if I'd would like to help:
'Well I'm not very good at decorating, I'll pay for paint etc'
'Oh, no, we must be seen to be 'doing it' - we get the local paper in on it and they photogrgraph us 'working at it'. Gets us good publicity'

Bunch o' hyopcrites. That was my last 'meeting' with them

I came from a family that was torn in half by them. They, to me, are the epitomy of an evil pagan cult that has no place in the 21st century. Whenever I shake hands with a "gripper" I feel contaminated. Secret societies are cults of unreason and their rituals are for those bereft of humanity and common decency.

As one who professes to be educated, Dunvegan, that is about the dumbest statement I have had the misfortune to read on here (apart from some of my own, of course laugh.gif )

I have a VERY dear friend who is nearing the end of his natural life and NOTHING could be further from the truth about this man's dedication and love towards his fellow man - demonstrated to me both personally, and publically. He has always been one of the most philanthropic individuals I've ever had the real pleasure to associate with.

I'm sorry to hear about your own experience - and THEE's - but demonizing them, is for me just NOT an option. Some of my wife's family are in the Mason's - and once again they are good and caring people.

Though I understand people's mistrust of ritual - it simply doesn't follow people who observe it are inherently evil.

We all belong to one big Brotherhood - some just demonstrate/express it differently.

Peace Brothers wink.gif

Nothin' to feel sorry about wi' me there Davy.
Since the age of 16 I've always gone my own way and never needed to belong to any group, association, or clique (contrary to what some may assume on here rolleyes.gif )
Win lose or draw I've always been my own man; even if the wins were scarce. laugh.gif

Definitely a Masonic penny. 1430 is the lodge number. I know because I have the same penny. It belonged to my Dad. I think the lodge was called Abercrombie. It is/was in the East End of Glasgow in Bridgeton.
