Dear Kind Sir,
I wish you would have done more thorough research before posting your article....
Let me begin by saying how happy and relieved I am to have " forcibly detached [myself] from any semblance of normalcy," in a world where the media breeds insecurity and the majority has become afraid to leave their homes because of fear-tactics imposed on them by misinformed journalists and news producers with an agenda to gain ratings.
I am Sister Sarah, Master Mason within the Grand Orient of the United States of America, the Master of Atlantis Lodge #21, a resident of the state of Ohio, and a proud woman Freemason who became a Freemason at Halcyon Temple, was made a Freemason gladly, and proudly, by the Brothers of Halcyon Temple, who respect and support my membership to the Grand Orient. Had it not been for the acceptance of my dear Brothers at Halcyon, my Lodge would not exist, and I would not be the pioneer for woman seeking enlightenment through Freemasonry that I am today.
So I must ask, from what source did you glean this misinformation? It's no matter really. The masses have been slandering Freemasonry since its beginning... so much for that. The Grand Orient and Freemasonry as a whole have grown more in 2012 than any previous year in the past decade, and we expect the same rate to apply this year. I pride myself in the fact that I am a member of America's most progressive and esoteric con-Fraternity. We accept people from all walks of life because we are humanists... our main stipulation is that those seeking membership have a sincere want to unravel the mystery and deeper meaning of our human existence.
I regret that I am unable to attend the events this weekend at the lodge I consider my Masonic home. The guys at Halcyon are True Blue and their out-reach to their community is unmatched and will be unfettered by the silliness that this article entails. Next week, another issue of the Cleveland Scene will be published and this issue will be recycled; meanwhile Halcyon will stand tall for the celebration of its 138th year. I urge you and all those who read this article to do your own research. Action always speaks louder than words, which is why Brother Tommy Coste and I will continue our work lifting the veil and allowing the truth to shine through.
