Man who believed Freemasons were spreading rumors about him convicted of attempted arson of lodge building

A man with a drinking problem has been sentenced for trying to burn down a Masonic lodge, the Evening Press of Edinburgh, Scotland reported.

Alan Halliday, 37, pushed two wheelie bins against the front door of the lodge in Dunbar, East Lothian, and set them on fire, causing $28,000 in damage to the building.

Halliday told police he did it because the Masons were a secret society and he thought they were spreading rumors about him.

Masons wouldn't do that, would they?

  1. I must admit this is exactly what I've been concerned about.

    Someone could very well get hurt due to imaginations running wild, fueled by damning theories.

    I'm not a Mason yet and these extremes won't stop me if I choose to join, but the idea that someone hates me because might belong to a so called secret society is troubling.

    I also fear for those extremists stoking the fires of hate. A heavy burden will be placed on their shoulders if, God forbid, someone is hurt or worse, killed.


  2. I think that one of the DDGMs is stalking me. Every time I show up at a function, he's there. A degree, a dinner, a district council meeting - every time I go to one I see him there.

    It's eerie, I tell ya.

  3. Bro. Tom,

    I bet the DDGM thinks that you are stalking HIM!

    — W.S.

  4. Yeah, I asked him about that. He claims that he can't be stalking me, since he's usually there first and I show up later. But I contend that it's all part of his Masonic tricks to know where I'm going to be next.

    Those Masons. It's creepy, I'm tellin' ya.
