I'm in agreement that Freemasonry is incompatible with the Christian Faith.   As such, I do not approve.  To think that people are allowed to get away with criminal behaviour because they belong to an elitist secret club of influential friends, should be an additional criminal offence with severe consequences, for both parties.

Boss Cat;
My dad was a Mason - though I never really knew him, as he died when I was four. Several of my uncles were also 'brothers'. They were decent men; I would never dispute that. However, their beliefs and practice are totally incompatible with Christianity, and they seem to mask their beliefs in a pseudo- Christian outlook.
I'd submit that freemasonry is not an organisation, but a religion, separate and distinct in its own right.

I thought you had to obey the law of the land to be a mason - so if a police officer did let your friend off then both of them surely should not have been masons.

I have worked in courts, recommending sentencing and have worked closely with the police.  I have never seen anything to lead me to believe that there is corruption or a hive of masonic plots inherent in the justice system.  Ineptitude (including my own on occasion) and naievety but nothing that has led me to think there are masonic plots at work.

Not that that proves anything.  I think freemasonry is strange and don't have much time for it, why don't men just make friends without all that secret society rubbish? but my dad was an enthusiastic mason for many years and he was an honest, decent and good man.
Up to and including the 3rd degree I would agree with you. Depending on ones' point of view and scepicism, after the 3rd degree or passing through the Royal arch things change. Do you have to stay within the law? Yes you should but there is evidence that the law can and is manipulated by the Masonic Order.
