WHAT FREEMASONRY STANDS FOR !! No one can dispute the fact that we are living in a disturbed world and this is brought to our attention every day we live by the news we get on the T.V., radio and the newspapers.

You Called me Brother!!

You Called me Brother! Shared with me by R.W. Bro. Wayne Anderson  The Craft is a society with secrets, but until recently, the public at large thought it was a secret society.
