    I like the fellowship the most, and the progressive line the least.

    I like the ritual and education the most. The politics and some of the subversive things some people do to get their way. Granted we don't have a lot of it but it does happen on occasion.

    Like... the ritual, the history and what it stands for
    Dislike...the unwelcomed feeling if you are not in the "in" circle and attend weekly.

    I love the symbolism and history, I dislike how little the symbolism and history are actually discussed. However, I am actively working to fix that in my lodge.

    Really? So there's a click within a click. That's never good. At least in my eyes.

    hah, like is easy. dislike not so much.

    either way, i dislike the same thing in masonry that i've always disliked about other organizations... aligning our motivations is often way harder done than said, and leads to infighting and hurt feelings.

    Masonic education and festive boards

    The lack of these things in my area.

    Also, our ritual should not be robotic and so strictly graded in weird areas. Gone is the emotion from many important parts, replaced by a rote recitation.

    There are lots of things I like about Freemasonry. The best is the worldwide fellowship. I do a lot of international work, and I have been privileged to visit lodges in many foreign countries. Not all Masons have this opportunity, but it is part of the wages of a Master Mason.

    There are, sadly, many things I dislike. Freemasonry is a human institution, and it is subject to all of the problems, inherent when humans are involved.

    My biggest "beef", is that too many Masons are unwilling to face the serious problems that Masonry will confront in the 21st Century. If I could get one wish, it would be that all Grand Lodge officers, and all lodge officers, and all Masons, would get a "reality check".

    I like the Fellowship the Brothers and history


    I dislike lack of dedication after working so hard to become a Master Mason,and not doing what you say because you forgot.

    I think like is too weak of a word, I LOVE the rich history and philosophical teachings are brotherhood offers man. For my current project in researching the Memphis Rite I learned so much about Freemasonry and what men were doing in the 19th century to make it better and to add a more fuller Masonic experience.

    I dislike the institutional racism and lack of change within our beloved fraternity, particularly here in Texas. Robotic reciting of the ritual, men showing up to lodge in t-shirt and shorts, etc.

    S&F,
