Is it all right to be a Mason? What is membership in the Lodge like? It is a highly respected Christian organization, isn't it? Here are surprising answers based on Mr. Elliott's revealing book in this second of a series of articles to our Church brethren. THE FIRST installment of this series gave the facts and figures of the size, importance and structure of Masonry.

Even the prospective member cannot know what lies ahead until he has been carefully screened, accepted and sworn to the strictest secrecy. During the initiation ceremony, the candidate is also required to solemnly swear never to reveal any of the secrets of Masonry under any less penalty than having his throat cut across, his tongue torn out by the roots, and his body buried in the rough sands of the sea.
