BRO. SHAQ SHOWS HIS MASONIC RING ON NATIONAL TV




I have mixed feelings about this situation. There is a side of me that says that a freeborn man, of lawful age, and well recommended, should be able to do whatever he circumscribes for himself. On the other hand, keeping one's passions in due bounds may just mean practicing caution and not bringing excessive attention to the Craft, particularly when that attention is not necessarily presented in a positive light...If you can afford it, why not? On the other hand, Light is Light, and your diamond encrusted square and compasses ring shines no brighter than my silver hollowed square and compasses ring...Thoughts?

  1. I think I am torn as well. I, for one, do let the world know that I am a Mason. I am proud to be a Mason. Those who choose to disagree with my choice to join the Craft, well they have a right to that opinion.

    On the other hand, I choose my time and place carefully. If I do not feel like I am in a place to answer all misguided questions appropriately, I keep the Craft safely guarded.

    So I believe Shaq's only mistake was choosing live TV to display his ring. He would not have ample time to answer questions, therefore keeping cowans in the dark.

    S&F,

    Bro. Gore

    1. I would agree with you Bro. Gore. Did you notice the moment when one of the announcers asked about the ritual work? Shaq promptly redirected the conversation to basketball. It would appear that he at least practices caution in some aspects.

  2. Does anyone know where he was raised? He's not clandestine is he?
