I know i'm going to get a knock on my door for asking this...but what exactly do the Freemasons do? Is there a charity aspect like the Elks and the Shriners? Is it just a group to belong to and give the secret handshake or nose wipe to another member?
I was raised Catholic so the stories I was told were probably sensationalized.
Just the Cliff Notes version, you don't have to give away all your world dominating secrets.
