She wakes up 33 years old with a chance to change everything.
This paper is an excellent discussion and I'm glad to be publishing it. I honestly cannot believe that I have to write about this. However, this topic came up on a Facebook group that I am a member of. Though the topic has since been deleted, I feel it is extremely important that we discuss the situation at hand.
Being a group of brethren I would assume the answer was an easy one, but I stand corrected.
Evidently, there are some individuals who feel that having a Homosexual amongst our ranks is… wrong. I know I may make a few readers upset and that is fine.
I am welcome to your constructive criticism. I will advise any negativity will be ignored. You and I have better things to do with our lives than to argue over the internet, friendly debates are always welcome. So, lets set something straight. Therefore, for the sake of mainstream American Masonry as lesbians are women they cannot petition.
Same goes for Transgender individuals, lets be real here. If a man is petitioning but he wants to become a woman or is in the process of becoming a woman, he is not a man. Not to mention the idea of changing your gender means changing the plans on the Great Trestle Board of the Universe.
Our job as Master Masons is to follow the trestle board according to plan not to revise it. We do that enough as it is with our mistakes in life, we aren't perfect.
This is where a lot of issues seem be rising. There is a lot of discussion about how we took an oath on the Bible and it is against God to be homosexual or bisexual. It is a question of morality to some brethren, saying these young men petitioning who are gay are immoral.
First thing is first, Since when does religion matter in the Blue Lodge? Have we forgotten the requirements of being a Master Mason? To be freeborn, of lawful age, to be of good report, highly recommended, and the belief of A Creator.
It does not state anywhere in our requirements that you must believe in the God of Abraham. So, for anyone to bring Christianity into the debate, let me be frank. It is not homosexuality that is causing the division in our brotherhood, but it is you who argue for religion.
We are a secular organization that requires the belief in a Creator. Leave your religion at home and accept a brother for being a brother; not because he believes in the same God as you. If you want to argue calling for the sinful nature of homosexuality, I will ask you if you have ever shaved, or worn mixed material clothing.
Next, if the man standing outside that door is of lawful age we have no reason to not accept him into our Craft. If he is of good report and recommended where is the problem? I know many men who claim to be God fearing and practice their unsaid faith who do not deserve to be Masons.
On that token, I know many straight, gay and bisexual men who would be great contributors to our Craft. They are just, moral and align.
Some of them actually live more upon the level than those we have already accepted into the Craft. So, morality is not an issue. There are good and bad men in this world regardless of their sexual orientation.
This next argument actually made me laugh hysterically.
The man, who shall remain nameless, actually believes it is a scientific proven fact that homosexuality is a mental disorder. This is by far the most ridiculous argument that I have ever seen in my life. I actually found links for this individual and posted them on the group so he could see how he was wrong.Sports journalists and bloggers covering NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, MMA, college football and basketball, NASCAR, fantasy sports and more.

Honestly, the only "issue" is that on the banquet circuit, some Masters have gifts for the brethren and a gift for their ladies, so that Master's partner got a lovely collection of flowers and and keychains.
