    What’s the problem you might ask? Seeking to interview some objective observers, the Grand Lodge sought out non-members who support the organization. They came across Constance Whiner, a member of an auxiliary Freemasonic organization, to provide an outsider' view. According to Grand Lodge sources, she had this to say, “Oh dear!

I can only imagine that they see this as a problem.”

    There's no fun or any community interactive things that anyone wants to do. Most of everyone who comes threw the blue lodge wants to be a shiner.
