    Is the Commandery too difficult for most Masons?

    Genesis as allegory?

    YES! - good questions, Dave! I do love discussing symbolism and it's too bad that 200 miles separates us to where we can't have these kinds of convo's on a regular basis. I'd like to focus on the quote "If you eat the fruit, you will die." My first question is "If the Tree of Knowledge...

    We have a nice Lodge. Don't get me wrong: I have visited some impressive Lodges with even more impressive Lodgerooms, but there is something really special about OCL. Of course, my opinion is slightly biased. ;)

    Death Metal Mason? you betcha.

    Always good to hear from a person with good taste in music! I'm into a lot of the sub-genres, too. Gotten into Doom during the last year. Anyway, you should keep in touch! I've got a band up on Myspace. If you're interested, I can send you the Myspace address.

    Illegal immigrants plan to leave over Ariz. law

    respectfully to everyone who has posted on this topic: our ancestors paid no attention to what was right when they invaded and occupied this land, nor to the laws that existed here thousands of years before their arrival. some compassionate thinking might be in order here. however, to...
