Greetings.My name is Brad Felmey and I've lived my entire life in a little town just west of Fort Worth, TX.I have been active civically and politically for most of my life. I'm a past master and…Continue
"Hmmm, I guess that might be dependent upon the jurisdiction. Here the moment you're raised you're a Master Mason, and it's that simple. You can eventually be suspended if the work isn't completed within a certain period of time,…"
While I suppose it's actually possible that you don't know any Masons, I suspect that the case is you don't know THAT someone you know is a Mason.
In either case, cold-calling is totally acceptable. I know some very good men…"
"Charles, I'm given to understand that you'll find a brother running the site, too. :)
Shawn, some lodges really struggle with getting the people they need all at the same time due to personal commitments. The Master's degree is a lot…"
"Precedence and superimposition are different things. One you get to do for yourself. The other you don't get to do for others.
It's clear that you're convinced being gay is a prima facie character flaw. It's clear that I believe…"
"I think the context is dead-on. Freemasonry isn't "liberal" nor "conservative". It's Freemasonry. It's about character, period. It is you who have defined homosexuality as a character flaw. You get to do that on…"

Homeland security would be kinda disappointed to find my phone hanging out in a holster.
I'm not so sure about leather tucked under an armpit. Anyone here wear a…"
"Personally I would much rather watch the gecko than Flo. The gecko is funny at least. Flo is just "everywhere" to the point of obnoxious.
What I don't like about Geico, is that it stands for Government Employees Insurance Company.…"
"I see what you are saying about FB, but the gym, those mirrors are essential.
Yes, checking form is important, but I use them for one more thing.
To me the gym is more mind game than anything else, and visualization is an important part of that. In…"
"I totally get your desire, and yes, those images really support the site character.
Glad you took the critique positively, establishing a unique identity online when so much has been "done" already, is very difficult, and a manly…"
"I agree that working on something is critical. Part of growing in manliness is feeling accepted into the world of men (you). Also, I would try to point to the manliness of Christ. There is an old book by Thomas Hughes from 1887 called The Manliness…"
"Thanks Carl and I definitely accept the feedback! I certainly don't want to be AoM and try to stand out as much as I can while still being in the same vein of ideas. The things that differentiate Wolf and Iron from AoM will likely present…"
