Simple question. There must be an answer.

Young human body suits are too tight for the ass-raping space lizards that are masons / illuminati.

Because it’s an archaic throwback of a club. Same reason golf courses and country clubs are having issues getting new members. GenX can’t afford it and boomers tend to put them off anyways. Millennials just aren’t interested.

Because women aren’t allowed and younger people have better things to do with their time.

Talking factually for a moment, around 8% are in the 21 - 30 age group, so they’re not ‘all’ old guys, just most of them.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.

Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

An old flame was scared of the Masons, she was lead to believe the group were some European version of KKK. It was a temporary issue when I joined an archery club with Mason members. She is Sikh.
Masons are of course an old Northern European ‘club’ that would often look out for the community and those in need. In its day there may not gage been so many dark skinned folk around, and those that were may have stayed within their own ‘club’.

I used to belong to them once. I lost interest when they talked about a 'Supreme Being' instead of using the word 'God' - the logic being to accept all faiths regardless of what they called their god. I couldn't go along with that nonsense although at that tender age (thirty something) I hadn't labelled myself as an atheist...

I've still got the fancy apron and the gold cuff-links. They say once a mason always a mason. I say bollocks.
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

Freemasonry is more helpful as you grow older and have a need for more help in your professional career as it peaks in middle age. Many Freemasons in the circle of the suits who are quite young and have no need for a kickback or odd handshake with money envelope. It is like the mafia, the dons tend to be older with a few scars and a street wise take on things.

Grandad was in a similar thing, think it was called Buffalo maybe. Anyhoo, besides raising Satan of a weekend they mostly looked out for the elderly and those who lost husbands in the war. Buying or repairing cookers, painting fences. Shit like that.

The guys in the picture are old because they are high ranking members, but they still recruit young people, and a surprising number of black dudes have joined up as well.
