is it that that is where he was caught, or that is his end destination?
Clearly, Penryn Masonic Club is the headquarters of the Illuminati.Hmm. I wonder if it's Rynner?
A man has been arrested in connection with the discovery outside a Masonic lodge of what is believed to be have been a home-made bomb.

A Penryn man was arrested on suspicion of attempted arson with intent to endanger life, Devon and Cornwall Police said. He was bailed until 29 June pending further inquiries.

Freemasons have long wielded the qualities most irresistible to thriller writers and conspiracy theorists — secrecy, politics, power and celebrity. Among their members are Founding Fathers, presidents, musicians, artists and businessmen. But today, as membership plummets within one of the oldest international fraternal organizations ever to exist, a new question persists: What is the point?
The challenges facing the organization have been decades in the making. While part of the problem is that Americans simply don't join clubs or fraternities as often as they used to, some critics argue that Masons have also struggled to keep up with the changing face of the nation. Many lodges still don't allow women to join, and others have struggled to attract members of color. In recent years, membership has dropped roughly 75% from a high of more than 4.1 million in 1959 — when about 4.5% of all American men were members. ...
Alec took us carp bashing In 1983. One of my Da's parishioners he was, and an elder. Nice bloke. Didn't know he was a brother. Da was asked to join in most of the parishes he served but always declined. Once I asked him why. He said it would have been a distraction from the hugely demanding business of pastoring to his community, which was his call. Respect.Freemason Alec Ayling, in South Australia's Riverland, said it had been daunting attending his first meeting. "If you were to join, you were blindfolded before you came in and you're conducted around certain areas and had things explained, and then you're sort of brought to light," he said.
This was repeated a few days ago and I was planning on watching it on catch up but seems like it was a one off repeat.Interesting article on the BBC about Freemasonry in Scotland:
My ex claimed (he was a pathological liar though and lied about the most horrendous things) that his father was entitled to specialist cancer care and treatment coz of knowing the right people in the lodge in London.I was talking to someone yesterday about the decline in clubs and societies, and they made the very good point that since there is a lot more scrutiny there is no real advantage in joining the Masons or the Golf Club so why bother
There was a time that the police and local government were basically run by the Masons and anyone looking to get contracts had to be connected
I don’t know about preferential treatment but the London lodges, of which I am a member, raised the funds to buy and install the cyber knife for cancer treatment at St Barts.My ex claimed (he was a pathological liar though and lied about the most horrendous things) that his father was entitled to specialist cancer care and treatment coz of knowing the right people in the lodge in London.
I'm only going by what he told me although I do sadly have to take everything he said with a pinch of salt.I don’t know about preferential treatment but the London lodges, of which I am a member, raised the funds to buy and install the cyber knife for cancer treatment at St Barts.
Kudos to your lodge for raising funds for the cyberknife. A few years ago a friend of mine was treated with it and is now doing very well. Several years prior, my late partner had explored the possibility of the cyberknife to combat his brain tumour. Unfortunately, he wasn't a suitable candidate because his tumour was too large for this type of treatment.I don’t know about preferential treatment but the London lodges, of which I am a member, raised the funds to buy and install the cyber knife for cancer treatment at St Barts.
Had it detonated, the motive would have been easy to detect: the victims would have been found at a low water mark, with their intestines draped over their left shoulders.A man has been arrested in connection with the discovery outside a Masonic lodge of what is believed to be have been a home-made bomb.
The leader of the lodge is elected by unanimous consent of the membership for a period of 1 year at a time and is called the Worshipful Master.As the assistant manager in a local bank in a small town, my dad was invited to consider joining the Masons back in the 80s. He declined, as at the time he was an enthusiastic member of at least 4 different Am Dram societies, and barely had a free evening as it was.
However, after he retired he did eventually succumb to the lure. I honestly can't see him as the secret-society-conspiracy type, even though for a lot of my growing up he was pretending to be someone else anyway. I have no idea what level he is at; he was the President (is that right?) of his lodge a while ago, but is that level-dependent or do they just pick someone with the appropriate amount of bonhomie? It has all been closed down during Covid, which is sad for the old chap as his social life dropped off the edge of a cliff as it was. Goodness only knows when they'll get round to re-opening again.
