From what ive heard, It's probably going to be tough to join. I don't think they are going to have a little application you can just fill out and get in.

Damn Feb 07'ers.

Look I seriously doubt you can just walk up and say I wanna be a member. Now teach me your secret hand shakes and give me my cool little decoder ring. If that was the case then Im pretty sure that every little kid with a box of Fruit Loops would be eligible to join. You sir, are a complete tool.
#16
almost everyone here is too young to join. Also you cant just join when you reach a certain age, you have to be nominated, then the process of actually becoming one is pretty difficult.

no, I'm not, but there is Freemason lodge about 7 minutes from my house. I only see really old people go in it so I'm not too interested. I like the rings though...

And since it was mentioned I flipped on the thing on Discovery Channel. Pretty cool so far.

A know alot of freemasons, they kindof creep me out. The whole secret organization thing turns me off of the whole thing.

you have to be of good moral character, have several character references, at least two of which must be freemasons, there are other requirements also that vary from lodge to lodge and within the different rites.

Membership requirements

Freemasonry initiation. 18th centuryA candidate for Freemasonry must apply to a Private (or Constituent) Lodge in his community, obtaining an introduction by asking an existing member. In some jurisdictions, it is required that the petitioner ask three times, however this is becoming less prevalent.[36] In other jurisdictions, more open advertising is utilized to inform potential candidates where to go for more information. Regardless of how a potential candidate receives his introduction to a Lodge, he must be freely elected by secret ballot in open Lodge. Members approving his candidacy will vote with "white balls" in the voting box. Adverse votes by "black balls" will exclude a candidate. The number of adverse votes necessary to reject a candidate, which in some jurisdictions is as few as one, is set out in the governing Constitution of the presiding Grand Lodge.


General requirements
See also: Regular Masonic jurisdictions, Co-Freemasonry, and List of famous Freemasons
Generally to be a regular Freemason, a man must: [15]

Be a man who comes of his own free will.
Believe in a Supreme Being.
Be at least the minimum age (18–25 years old depending on the jurisdiction).
Be of sound mind and body (Lodges do not deny membership to a man because of a physical disability; this is largely a historical holdover, and if a potential candidate says there will be no problem, he will be taken at his word), of good morals, and of good repute.
Be free (or "born free", i.e. not born a slave or bondsman. As with the previous, this is largely a historical holdover, and can be interpreted in the same manner as it is in context of writing a will. Some jurisdictions have removed this requirement).
Have character references, as well as one or two references from current Masons, depending on jurisdiction.
A candidate is asked 'Do you believe in a Supreme Being?'. Since an initiate is obligated on the sacred volume which is applicable to his faith, a sponsor will enquire as to an appropriate volume once a decision has been made on the applicant's suitability for initiation.

A number of Grand Lodges allow a Lewis, (the son of a Mason), to be initiated earlier than the normal minimum age for that jurisdiction, although no earlier than the age of 18.

Some Grand Lodges in the United States have a residence requirement, candidates being expected to have lived within the jurisdiction for certain period of time, typically six months.[37]

It is notable that the requirement for the candidate to have a belief in a Supreme Being is present in some, but not all, Co-Masonic bodies, leading to a significant divergence in organisational direction and philosophy.

You have to know a free mason to become a free mason. Also, you have to be white.

Thats the word on the street anyway.

Screw the Freemasons. The Illuminati is where it's at.

Nah, I got screwed and ended up hooked on that "FREE Masonery" trial, but I couldn't figure out how to cancel and now they bill $39.95 a month to my credit card... I'm not impressed.
