I would like to open a debate about FreeMasonry as I am an ex Grand Master of the thirty first degree..also an adept of the Rose Croix..in short I am a Mason supposedly a member of the Illuminati.
I joined the Freemasons mainly because I thought that I could do some good in this World. yes there are some dark proceedures in the initiation..but they're in no way Satanic..the first question asked of any of us is.."Do you believe in God" I answered !"YES!" and writing this ,writing at this moment I feel bathed in HIS Glory.
I am NOT a member of the supposed Illuminati although Kerry would "Pidgeon Hole" me as a sort of Satanist nutter. I am none of the above..just a regular bloke, with a lovely Mum and Dad. I am however an extremely high ranking Mason..and am wondering where to distribute our money..I want to do it for the animals ..my Lodge members want the cash to go towards Kids.
Guys and Girls,
I'm so sorry to burst your bubble over Freemasonry..90% of what you read is not true and I'm more than happy to discuss or debate any questions that you'd like to ask.

As the saying goes... "be careful what you wish for"
But since you ask.
I have concluded some time ago, after research and after talking with masons directly, that "some Illuminati may have been/be masons, but virtually none of the masons know any specific esoteric knowledge that they keep to themselves and won't share with the world. So in that respect, I can concur - Masons are not evil, and if you take a while to study the ritual and know the reasons behind them, they aren't any more dark or strange than a Catholic eating a symbolic part of the body of Christ and drinking his blood. Symbolic cannibalism of your saviour doesn't seem to put off a lot of people, so I don't see why a symbolic death and rebirth ritual is somehow worse.
As for where your Lodge members want to spend the money, that's really for your Lodge members to decide. Our opinion doesn't matter as none of your funds came from our pockets through taxation or by means of having made promises as to what would be done with it.
Personally I'd favour the reduction of human suffering, the increase of opportunity for youth, and I'd think global but act local.
Go to your local college and talk to a student advocate/councilor. See if they can identify some people that are top notch but are having to drop out through financial hardship. Look through your neighbourhood for old, dilapidated or unsafe playgrounds. Visit your local food banks, city missions and night shelters and ask them what they are desperately short of. You'd be surprised how little can go a long way. Look for community volunteers that are angels on earth, but can do with better tools, transport, equipment.
And finally, well done for inviting open questions. Be prepared to have your patience tested
