Inquiring-and Masonic-minds want to know

May 11, 2012

A reader recently opined that Felon-free Masonry was not an accurate depiction of Masonry and “lodge matters” should be handled in that manner.

Brothers, felon-free Masonry is not anti-Masonry.  However, it is against lying, cheating, defrauding, and other misrepresentation in the name of Masonic precepts.

Poor reflections of Freemasonry stem from thrice convicted violent felon James Anderson “Jimmy” Foster, who for over ten years hid his criminal history from Hillsborough Lodge No. 25 and the Grand Lodge of Florida.  Additionally, Foster denied the lengthy criminal history (including a 25 year prison sentence, two stints in prison, time  spent in a Florida Department of Corrections mental health facility, and a fifteen year period of probation) when confronted with it in September 2009.

Thus, Foster lied, cheated, and defrauded every single Master Mason in good standing across the globe.  Period. 

When active in Masonry, Foster caused more harm than good.  Likewise, a seemingly ill-equipped successor ruled with only a short temper and gross mismanagement.  Those questioning these individuals were threatened with Masonic charges and/or became the subjects of outlandish rumors.    

Further, Foster’s farcical Masonic trial included an odd sidebar between Joseph Meketsy and James Bustin in which the latter, as an alleged tool of J. Dick Martinez, supposedly brokered a suspension instead of a well-deserved expulsion.  You know, because that’s an alleged right for all Masons whose special friends grew up close to Mr. Martinez, right?  Moreover, is this the definition of handling lodge matters in a lodge manner?

Well, at least Bustin successfully brokered something.  You know, what with that nasty little foreclosure.

So, in the words of the late Paul Harvey, felon-free Masonry tells “the rest of the story.”

Brothers, kindly remember that there are three sides to every story:  Yours, mine, and the truth.  As many have noticed, the instant truth contained herein is supported by extensive criminal records, court documents, and newspaper articles.  Just as the first amendment protects your right to free speech, felon-free Masonry gladly serves your right to know.  And judging by recent search engine terms, a lot of folks want to know.
