From Labor To Refreshment. This is why we moderate our comments at the Midnight Freemasons. Lets just say there's a lot of interesting people in this world with a lot of interesting ideas--especially about Freemasonry. We get interesting comments and emails almost daily. I thought you might enjoy this one. I decided to have a little fun with this one.
I thought I'd share a random email. I just never know what I'm going to get from day to day. Every once in awhile, I get one like this--from that group known to all as the "Masonic conspiracy theorists." A friend of mine calls them "secret squirrels."
Dear Mr. Creason (if that is your real name),
I thought I would let you know that as a 33rd Degree Mason, and one of your Godless organization's most prolific and skilled disseminators of disinformation about Freemasonry, your act is transparent. Most people know that Freemasonry is really the public front of the Illuminati, which is an evil organization dedicated to the destruction of our society for the profit and power of an elite few. Like you.
E.M.I was truly shocked--I didn't know what to say. Finally I answered.
Dear E. M.
I can't believe what you just said to me. I'm a 33rd Degree Mason? I had no idea! All these years, I've been wearing this ring upside-down! I turned it over, and you're absolutely right--it does say "33". All this time I thought I was an "EE." Thanks for clearing that up for me.
