Freemasonry might be the most misunderstood “secret” society in the world. Is it a religion? A cult? A group of men planning to overthrow the world’s political leader to unleash their own agenda on us? The answer to all of those questions is a resounding, “no,” which leaves us scratching our heads. Learning about the Freemasons can be as difficult as finding a non-blurred Bigfoot in the woods. Don’t panic, though, because here’s everything you need to know about the Freemasons so you too can one day join the fraternity.
Which secret will you find the most surprising?
One of the biggest misconceptions about the Freemasons is that it’s a secret society. The simple truth is this: Freemasons are free to tell the world they are Freemasons. No one can stop them and they won’t be punished.
They just can’t spill the beans about what goes on behind the scenes. If they do, then they need to be prepared to suffer the consequences. One man, William Morgan, was paid a large amount of money in 1880 to reveal the society’s secrets in a book. But before he could, he went missing and was never heard from again.
