They have nothing else to do but try to tie nonsense to their beliefs and tell us that they know more than we do about Freemasonry

maybe it's your will to keep knowledge hidden from the profane or maybe you really dont know but symbols are hard to mislead and freemasonry of old is drenched in serpent symbols,not to mention the older masonic apron clasps of serpents which leads back to the tree in the garden of eden ,adam and eve with the aprons they fashioned out of fig leafs and of course the serpent in the tree.

Or maybe you're just spouting nonsense based on cartoonish conspiricism and a bunch of wild guesses made by people who have no actual knowledge of Freemasonry. Do you accuse doctors of worshiping serpents? The caduceus is still in use by hospitals and medical schools.

Ok now ALOT of the stuff this gentleman has said I agree is nonsense but he did have a legit question from some one who knows nothing of freemasonry and I really have no idea how to rightfully answer this guys question so .....but some of the comments that I have read one might translate as being hurtful and we don't want to look like the type of organization that just makes fun of people who know nothing of the order know do we......
That being said after discussion and research of the apple sauce comment that shit was hilarious

stupid is what stupid does.

True. Unfortunately it's also true that crazy is what crazy does and another one of our qualifications is to be of sound mind.

Snakes on aprons? It's like you've never even seen a Masonic apron. We sometimes march in our aprons in public processions so the images on them are very well known. Seeing snakes on them is delusional and thus not of sound mind.

You have been added to my list of people who I pray for their mental healing.

The clasps on many aprons (PM, Grand Whatever) have a stylized serpent forming the s-hook. I believe that is what is being referred to here.

Very interesting. I guess that my apron hook resembles that second one. I never paid attention to it before. But now i want to know what it means that the straps are held together by the thing that split us humans apart. Any thoughts on that?

Nice pics! Thanks for the correction. I wonder if that's from an appendent body or if it's common in jurisdictions I have not yet encountered.

Symbols on aprons tend to refer to parts of ritual. I don't recall any mention of snakes in the 3 versions I know nor in the jurisdictions I have visited.

There's so much material in SR lectures it might be there and I don't recall. It's not the sort of topic that is part of the Shrine ceremonial. That leaves a lot of appendent bodies I'm not a member of.

I'm not removing him from my list praying for mental healing. Based on his other posts he still needs what help that can give.

Edited: I was pointing out that being a mason is not a license for others to treat us as they see fit without repercussions but I can see your point.

What happened here is a troll got caught trying to set us up and knock us down with anti-BS. He unfortunately had what he was dishing out (apple sauce? ) spoon fed back to him.

Is that unmasonic? Maybe but a little elbow rubbing never hurt anyone.
