    I agree and that was my original point way back when we started this thread. Sometimes change has to forced than waiting for it. But I also old habits die hard. On both sides of the fence.

    Depends on how the lodge operates I know that the Lodge I belonged to if the wife said no way then it was a no. But if she said that it is ok then there is no problem. So make sure that you inform your wife of your intentions. .

    No not at all unless your wife openly objects to you joining the lodge. I'm married... During my investigation they asked my wife a few simple questions and they were done with her and turned their attention back to me. It will be no issue at all...

    I sure hope not I have tats all over my neck hands, arms, legs, chest, and back. And I have been the head of just about every body in Masonry. And I am not even the most tattooed guy in the jurisdiction.

    Jumping in late to the discussion. I believe there is racism on both sides, or at least a sense of mistrust in legitimate PHA organizations. As far as clandestine lodges, they are problems we all face.
