    My question is what do you think of black masons and templar?
    Does it matter whether a person is a mason or templar of African descent?
    I think it does not because we pledge and rush black Greeks organizations, but when a brother or sister is a prince hall mason/o.e.s people have a problem.
    I am a dynasty or generational mason it runs in my family so I have no problems with Masons.

    What is a black mason ... templar ... prince hall mason ?

    What is the benefit to a person ... for being any of those designations?

    Can anyone be one ... and if so ... where do we go to sign up?

    Ohhh ... and are they like a religion or spiritual path ... ?? ... as you posted this in the Spirituality / Religion Forum.

    Thank You,

    To answer your question, the only benefit of being a etc... is on a moral level.
    True you can not just join as a normal club or social organization do, to be one you have to ask one.
    The reason traditionally is to accept those who have a true calling to join.
    They use spiritual teachings as a way to teach morality and the mystery duality of Humankind.

    peace

    Why do you feel that 'people have a problem' with prince hall mason's. I know many of them, even have a couple in my fam. I once helped a friend of mine shoot up the ladder, so to speak when he was 'selected'. I was giving him so much info. that he eventually 'stepped off line'.

    "I am that i am
    so no need to give me the third degree
    you don't have to pay me no dues
    you can come and get the word for free" - bro. info

    Btw, did the prince hall mason ever receive their charter?
