    Default Freemasons

    What are the members views on freemason.

    Would anybody join?
    Are they relevant?
    Would it harm a politician to be exposed as a freemason?

    Its a really bad thing and they have done enormous harm.
    Seeing as all politicians , journalists judges etc etc are in the masons almost without exception you can hardly expect that it would cause them harm to be exposed as one.

    If you are before a court in the UK get a woman to defend you. That way the brothers, the judge and "your" lawyer won't decide the case down the lodge.

    I'd disrespect them.

    The same questions could be asked for Skull & Bones or the Illuminati or some other society.

    I'd join if only because conspiracy theorists, Nazis, extremist Muslims, and Stalinists seem to share such a hate for them.

    Actually that really wouldn't surprise me.

    Isn't it the norm to say "So there."

    You may want to research them, and not in Wikipedia, before making up your mind.

    There was an excellent Prime Time documentary on this lot a few years ago. (or was it Would You Believe.....)

    It seemed to show them as being a fairly harmless and pathetic bunch of old boys - like the Apprentice Boys, only slightly younger
