My father is a freemason, Scottish and York Rites, and he is a Kiva Shriner. Here lately, I have become curious about what Freemasons are all about. Today we had a long talk. Dad told me to read up on the internet and talk to other Masons about it. So, Are there any Freemasons here? If so, why did you become a part of Masonry? What does being a Freemason mean to you? I would ask that only those involved with Masonry answer this post. I know that this can be a hot-button topic. All I want is a friendly discusion, NOT a flame war!
