    Well I will argue my point until it gets hostile then it can be taken out of public view or dropped. Thats with a Brother. Non-Brother is a different story. I am sure that a lot of what I say is not agreed with. And there is things I don't agree with. But these are my Brothers and if I do have something to say it won't be in public.

    No Brothers, what I mean is around the world in certain areas, Religions are being banned. The Brothers in The U. K. May disassociate themselves from the U.S.A. and I can't understand, because we are meant to be of one.

    Thurse, I don't mean to be impolite, but I still don't have a clue what you are talking about. Could you enlighten us with a little more than 2 lines? Perhaps some background, maybe a link or something?
    Your posts tend to be a little vague.

    Where do you get this? I'd think if there was even a peep of something like this, a lot of us would have heard about it.

    Their was a post I read in regards to the Brothers, in the U. K disassociating themselves, due to the close allegiance with Scotland. I have been very concerned about the matter and the Florida, situations, in regards to banning Religions and also the numbers of Brothers, are decreasing. Brothers, I'am just worried in regards to our Brotherhood.

    I think he's referring to the Grand Priory of England withdrawing recognition of the US Grand Encampment.

    That will get worked out. In Texas it has very little impact because Grand Lodge has said it is fine to be with the Grand Encampment even though recognition had been rescinded, but noone is allowed to take part in the Grand Priory of USA. These are all small spikes in the signal that seem significant at the moment. As we look back on it, it will be a small blip on the radar. There are people that are intimately involved with these issues (most of which were elected by the Brethren) and they will get it worked out.

    I'm not going to tell you what to do; but, I tend to *worry* about things where I can affect change. Worry is a draining effort that should be put to use like a tool (or instrument) to create or change something for the builder's use. If I don't know how to draw plans on a trestleboard...there's no use for me to worry about what's on it. Yet, it could provide the motivation for me to learn science and arithmetic to affect that change (i.e. draw or ensure the plans are drawn correctly now that I've attained that Light as well as the position to impose myself).

    Just a few thoughts. There is cause for concern, but don't despair. We've been around for a while. Things will change. It may not be the Fraternity you once knew, when you are an old man...but we'll be alive and well (we've got a lot of history to back up that ascertion).

    Thank you Brothers, this very inspiring to my ears. I try and stay on the Bright side of life, but it is hard at times reading disappointing news.
