    Yeah, those are all good. There was a long essay written about the Mason connection to the JFK assassination. Pretty good too.

    I always thought it was funny people thought the KKK came from Masonry, I bet there where some sheep who where klansmen and Masons, but to say Masonry teachings are in line with the klan is just plain ludicrous.

    i've had people petitioning ask me (while on the investigation committee) several funny questions.

    one i can think of right away is "is it true that all the presidents have been masons?"

    Not exactly a conspiracy theory, but a coworker recently asked me if Masons have to tithe their lodge like a church. I'd never heard that one before. I explained the reality of the fraternity to him, and put him in touch with a Past Master in his community. He is now petitioning the lodge.

    These are all great. I think as with everything, people fear what they don't know. Or these could have started as rumors. I know the on about devil worshipers was started by someone that was kicked out of the craft by taking a presentation of Albert Pike and manipulating the words. After he denounced his own rumor it still held in the church because it was so far spread.

    That was based from "A Pilgram's Path".

    I actually love the conspiracies, good and bad. It gives Masonry a certain mysticism about it. I mean, come on...Masons are the ones that protect the national treasure! Don't see any Knights of Columbus or Rotary members doing that!

    A neighbor told me "Well I thought the Masons were all secretive and involved in good conspiracies. But if they'll let you in, then I don't know... Must not be that important!"

    oh yea... here's another one. we went to a bar once and someone told a buddy of mine (long story *really* short is) that once you get to one of the upper "echelons" (the word they used) of masonry... like "28... 29... maybe 30th degree," we'll understand the secrets and the whole conspiracy.

    i told him it had more to do with the weekend we spent getting to the 32ND DEGREE and the 175 bucks that went with it than any kind of conspiracy.

    Well the connection in Texas between the KKK and the Masons were close.. ! one Grand Master was in a heap of trouble in the 1920's and 30's when he posted a notice that KKK couldn't use Masonic lodges as meeting places.. ! he was told not to visit in east Texas.. ?

    Those people who talk about Mason getting together to control great wealth has never been at a meeting when we try to decide what to have at the meal.. ! getting this bunch to agree what to do with great wealth..hehehe..?

    Masonic history is very interesting when you look at the times when things like George Washington have Mason's on his staff.. ! and all thru histroy when Masons made things happen and reading between the lines you know some one made a small handshake and ask a favor.. !

    This is not a conspiracy but I thought it was funny. A woman who came from a long line of Masons was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Her church members told her that her cancer was caused by her families ties with Masonry.
    She denounced all of her family members that were Masons. At her next Doctors visit she was told that a miracle had happened. She was totally cancer free and she attributed it to the fact that she denounced MASONRY.

    WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?:eek:
