Hiram's: 'We Take Good Food and Make It Better'

With a hypothetical chain restaurant called "Hiram's" representing American Freemasonry, this video outlines the problems inherent in Masonry today, and suggests new ways to make the meal more tasty.

Watch this excellent video on Freemasonry titled Restaurant at the End of the Masonic Universe, from Stephen Dafoe and, here or on YouTube.

  1. I am a Warden of my lodge. One day, I received a phone call from a potential candidate. He wanted a petition. He had been given my number from a Bro. at our Scottish Rite. I happily told the lodge members about this at that night's meeting. As usual, there were just barely enough present to open lodge. Almost in unison, they loudly said "did you get a look at him?" They said other, more crude things, too. It was clear that they wanted to know if he was white. This was the last straw for me. I won't stand for election to anything again. The morons can have it. I have spent enough time working my butt off for stupid rednecks who do nothing but eat and complain. I hope Masonry makes someone better. What it's done for me is make me mad and waste my time.

  2. Join Haclyon 498, They seem to have it together.

  3. Nemo,
    That's one lodge that has forgotten (or never known) what Freemasonry is supposed to be. Keep looking.

    Maybe it is your job to make them better Masons. Or to make Masonry better for the next man. Lodges like that will never improve until those men no longer feel like they are surrounded by Masons who agree with them. So outnumber them. Shame them. And make YOUR lodge a place THEY don't want to come back to, not the other way around.

  4. it sux when a young man is alone..
    battle vindictive nasty old men who would rather rip your heart out than change the color of the anter room!

  5. Wow... That video speaks volumes. Keep the faith brethren and find a lodge that meets your needs. The biggest shame is a new candidate can't visit other lodges before he comes through the door the first time. Until he gets to a point he can travel then he is stuck not knowing not all lodges are equal in quality, focus on different things or differ in their menu options, so to speak.
