People are afraid of the unknown, and it becomes easy to categorize every organization as evil! If you had a (God forbid) a badly burned child, or one that has muscular skeletal birth defects, would you not send them to a hospital? How about being a blind child, would you not want the condition treated! Shriners Hospital does that for children! They don't charge a dime for surgery, skin grafts, hospital costs or transportation costs for the parents! Oh, those Shriners, are also Masons! Yes a secret society, that people call devil worshipers, and have plans to overthrow the government! Bunch of crap! You can't be a mason without believing in God, or a Knights Templar, York, or Scottish Rite Mason! Oh, there is also Eastern Star (those scary ladies with the so called upside down star). For one, I am proud to be a member of this so called secret society! No, we are not illuminati, but all too often get dumped in the same bucket!
