    Well, i guess im getting cold feet. Ive been reading lately and just been thinking. Ive always wanted to be a Mason, i wasnt able to go the MS route. I just didnt think it was going to happen that route. So i decided to go PHA. Ive been reading and i guess now im seeing how disconnected it is. The last thing i want is to be one, meet someone whos MS and they look down on me.

    Ask yourself: 1.) Why do you want to be a Mason? 2.) What do you think Masonry can offer you? There's only disconnect in 8 southern states. Perhaps you can get to know members of both in your city. That may help. But I wouldn't let "being looked down on" be my deciding factor.

    1. Because of the history, the comradary, the brother hood. 2.id like to think about it like what can i bring to the fraternaty, my dedication, knowledge, time and effort. I went to two lodges and didnt feel welcomed at neither. The PHA lodge was great, its just that those 8 states are preventing recognition. They would consider me cladenstine.

    Yes Georgia PHA is not recognized by the GL of GA. But the GL of GA isn't recognized by the GL of CA or DC. So its the same. If you join one GL then your focus should be on that GL and not any other GL's opinion. Do you think PHA in Georgia care what the GL of GA thinks? Not at all. If they were worried about that then there would be no PHA.... Make sense?
