In the reboot, he's gone mad not from the mercury used to stiffen hat brims, but the green food dye used to colour St. Patrick's Day Guinesses.

Masons are pretty mum about being Masons.

WOuld love to hear how your introduction to it all is going.

well it seems pretty good, i've been going to blood drives every month and i showed up on the wrong day and they wanted to invite me in and talk to me. i mean it's basically just a community service club for dorky engineering dudes, right?

i would obviously not start as a shriner tho

but they're not mum in my experience, at the palo alto temple there is a monthly "come learn if being a shriner is right for you" night

Always thought you had to ask, that they didn't publicize any open membership.

I've always been interested too, but it kinda sounds like Old White Guy Scientology or something.

That is, if Scientologists had created THE UNITED STATES.

no in california it's becoming very diverse

also there are approximately zero religious beliefs involved aside from 1) acknowledge a higher power 2) acknowledge the goodness of fellow man 3) be willing to volunteer for peace and goodwill

the weirdo shit is all just theatrical initiation, and since the beginning of the century has basically been played for fun, games and fundraising (all of that shit costs $$$ and the gross goes to to charity)


Florence, a world-renowned actor, while on tour in Marseilles, was invited to a party given by an Arabian diplomat. The entertainment was something in the nature of an elaborately staged musical comedy. At its conclusion, the guests became members of a secret society. Florence took copious notes and drawings at his initial viewing and on two other occasions, once in Algiers and once in Cairo. When he returned to New York in 1870, he showed his material to Fleming.[4]

Fleming took the ideas supplied by Florence and converted them into what would become the "Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (A.A.O.N.M.S.)". Fleming created the ritual, emblem and costumes. Florence and Fleming were initiated August 13, 1870, and initiated 11 other men on June 16, 1871.[5]

The group adopted a Middle Eastern theme and soon established Temples meeting in Mosques (though the term Temple has now generally been replaced by Shrine Auditorium or Shrine Center). The first Temple established was Mecca Temple (now known as Mecca Shriners), established at the New York City Masonic Hall on September 26, 1872. Fleming was the first Potentate.[6]
