    Default Freemasons and Shriners

    Who are these people. Why are they so secretive? Why do Masons wear aprons? Why do Shriners wear Fezzes? Are you a Free Mason?

    They are just regular people.

    They are secretive to avoid persectution from the catholic church. Originally, thats what it was, and I guess it kinda stuck. Though there may be other reasons.

    Didn't know that masons wore aprons, though I guess they have traditional attire at their ceremonies.

    Don't know who/what shriners are.

    I am not a FreeMason.

    I am not a Free Mason either. But they seem to do good things in the world. They contribute millions of dollars to charity. I think Shriners are part of the Mason group or at least ideology. The Shriner Hospital treats children with diseases at no charge.

    Freemasonry is really old and outdated, it'll probably get smaller and smaller and maybe just die eventually. It's changed so much that it's not really structured thus losing its speciality.

    If you're a history junkie, I suggest looking at Wikipedia first.

    Oh...I was kidding. Though I think I have ancestors who were. Free masons are kind of outdated I think.

    I've given and done some Masonic things indirectly and gave illuminati signs as a joke but people are responding to me seriously. I'm wondering if I should ask.
