I just received my 50-year pin as a Master Mason, and all Masons I have known are good and honorable men..... I am also a Knights Templar and have never met a Knight that I do not consider my brother. Most people who know me are unaware of my Masonic affiliations, because I don't wear the jewelry much and don't talk about it with anyone except Masons and those who might approach me about becoming a Mason....
There have been a few rotten men who held masonic degrees....Their day has or will come:
