When I became a Freemason in 2000, I was amazed to find that the inner workings of this once-revered institution was in a state of advanced decay. The once-hallowed halls of Masonry had become filled with men who were more like the characters you find lurking in the smoke-filled dens of a gambling hall, men who sought only to further their social standing with extravagant titles and philanthropic associations. Their own quest for personal fame and financial gain was the impetus for their pretended pious adherence to the Lodge.
I joined the RRCG because I feel that they are in the spirit of TRUE MASONRY. They adhere to the old ways and value honor, integrity, and brotherhood over title-grabbing and fame-seeking. It is an order that values enlightenment and masonic education over fish-fry dinners and BBQ's.
True charity begins with compassion for the spirit. All other acts of charity follow. Truth... above all else.
The Grand Lodge of Georgia has become a "Whited Sepulchre." It is full of dead men's bones. Nowhere is there Light to be seen — only old blind men sucking their own blood. They deny the Light to the weary traveler. The sacred fire has been taken from their own hearth.
Yet Prometheus remains bound. The thief is in their own ranks and he shall bring it to that place swathed in purple, where the unrighteous shall hoard its meager light unto themselves and hide it from the worthy.
As the righteous dead implore the Lord, "How long must we wait before thine vengeance is meted out upon the usurpers of the truth?", we watch and wait until the ultimate and ineviteable end of all evil intentions runs its course.
I will cleave to the RRCG, this pinnacle of what true Freemasonry can be.
And I shall defend it to my own end, should it be necessary.
