There seems to be a bit of concern and a few misconceptions about Freemasonry, please take a look at the link below and it should go some way to explaining who and what we are.

To all of those who have shown an interest, it seems we most likely have enough people to start a lodge here in Udon, I shall investigate what needs to be done and contact all those who have shown an interest. Please contact me on vmunday@hotmail.com if you are MM or above, I'm particularly interested in hearing from PM's.

I thought you had to be a religous zealot to become a freemason? ........... You can forget it if your catholic however as the Catholic church condemns freemasonry [-X

Freemasons are a secretive mob, had a couple of mates accepted into the fold many years ago. They actually changed a fair bit socially and in my opinion not for the better. They were good surfers but didn't come out to play with us to much after that. They became reclusive and went off the map. Maybe they enjoyed the lifestyle and mind set that any type of religious group can provide to one another.
Yes they were believers in a god, pre requisite I believe, which left me out.
As a young kid I always thought the lodge near us was a meeting place for professional orchestra guys. Had the same formal wear as that group.
But never saw any woman.
Closest thing growing up to learning about Freemason was the Flintstones. Fred and Barney were masons.

I'm sure your group will prosper, will be interesting if you can keep the group going over time without the younger generation of Thais being interested and not god believers.

I think there are more than enough quality eateries, bars, shops for folk to meet up in and no need for a masonic lodge.

Folk here always said people that were in it got off with drink driving etc..... and that it helped them get good jobs , but who knows it all seems a bit pointless to me and not something I would have any interest in.

Regarding oddballs in Udon these days we were sitting having a Pad Thai at the roadside one day and this American bloke stopped his bike and started going on about the new world order and that the governments in the west were going to declare Marshall law and start executing citizens to reduce population numbers, there was loads of other stuff he ranted on about until Id had enough and politely asked him to leave and he then drove off shouting about it all. Very strange.

Don't get me started on Operation Tiberius.

"Concerns over the influence of freemasons on the criminal justice system in 1998 led former Home Secretary Jack Straw to order that all police officers and judges should declare membership of the organisation.

However, ten of Britain’s 43 police forces refused to take part and the policy was dropped under threat of legal action. In England and Wales, the Grand Master of the Freemasons is Prince Edward, Duke of Kent."


Nothing to see here. Move along now.

Lets face it that's what SHOULD be happening anyway.
