I love the Scottish Rite. I wish I could impart every young man in the country with the lessons in those 29 degrees. I present the 20th degree.

York Rite is great also, but very different.

How would I go about joining the free masons? I do not know any personally or If I do i dont know that they are. Also How would I know if I even want to join the masons since its secretive and I have no Idea what they do?

I too am interested. Many of my family are members and some are Scottish Rite. But none are close to join withy them.

Google "masonic grand lodge of (your state)" and you will get the state website.

Also look on line for masonic meetup groups in your area. Basically you meet some masons and get to know them and ask for a petition. They can give you specifics about joining in your state.

another question, is it true that atheist can not join the Mason's ?

Thank you, my state's masonic page was very informative. There is a lodge in my town and Ill give the contact a call.

I'm not Scottish right yet, but hoping to petition soon. I am a Shriner, it's another great group to join. I'm loving that Lodge is back in session now, the summers are long without it.

To be a Mason, ask a Mason. Good luck on your journey quest.

Serving as WM of the Lodge - I can think of no other honor that requires you to work so hard yet leaves you with the greatest memories. Congratulations

AlexHassin - What YOU perceive a supreme being to be, may be different than others.

BearMBD 10-05-2012 18:21

Thank you for the answers, Gentlemen. I'll look into Michigans website

That is definitely going to be a problem.

As for the Scottish Rite, I am a Scottish Rite Mason with the Valley of Miami. I think the Scottish Rite is amazing, and I strongly prefer it over the York Rite. The Scottish Rite even inspired me to get my first tattoo...based on the 30th degree Knight Kadosh.

The only thing that I feel like I should point out is that there are some pretty distinct differences between the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction (NMJ) and Southern Jurisdiction when it comes to the Scottish Rite.

The Southern Jurisdiction is the oldest Council in the world, and it dubs itself the "Supreme Mother Council of the World.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supreme...sdiction,_USA)

The Northern Jurisdiction was created with the intent that it would govern its own states (which it does).

Hyksos

i had thought about masonic ink as well. i just wasn't sure if that was, well, proper.

matter of fact, your avatar looks like it would look great on my forearm.
