    To betray so many brothers and their families.... I suppose even sociopaths can get into our brotherhood if not carefully watched.

    Of course they can "MEMBERSHIP IS DECLINING, WE NEED NEW MEMBERS" This is what is shoved down our throats. I believe in quality over quantity.

    We need MASONS, not "members".

    Knowledge come by through far too much personal familiarity with Masonic trials - It is rare for an embezzler to be prosecuted in a criminal case if the theft is below $250K, common if the amount is over $250K. I know of a case where the amount was under the threshold so the perps were expelled from Masonry then did not go through criminal charges.

    In one of the secretary training sessions in Illinois a similar case was discussed and it was mentioned to happen roughly once per decade in the large jurisdiction. Argh.

    It's very disconcerting when a Brother betrays Brother(s).

    The lesson not learned is that our insurance policies should have defalcation coverage.

    Nah. In this case it was a term of art, and one I should know, but your profession does not require. Each of us has our own professional nomenclature, including that of our common profession as Freemasons.
