Or perhaps we should use "Common Misunderstandings" or even "Common Assumptions which are WRONG"....

In any event, there are number of assumptions that the anti-Masonic campaign takes which are rarely recognized and even less frequently addressed head-on. Here we'll try to point out a few of them.

EVERY MASON KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT or, to put it another way, EVERY MASON IS A SCHOLAR.

This is no more true that the fact that everyone who joins a golf club knows all the rules of golf or that someone elected to a City Council can explain each and every regulation and rule in the City's ordinances.

The fact is, many men join Freemasonry because they want to be part of an organization about which they've formed a favorable opinion. During their acclimation into the organization, they'll hear, see or read things which might be confusing to them (just as the rules of golf would be to someone who'd never held a golf club!). Consequently, they'll be prone to repeat what they've heard or read as truth when, in fact, it may be totally incorrect.

Those who 'preach' against Freemasonry will berate the Mason who does not know as much as they do about the organization to which they belong. Nevertheless, it is no more realistic to expect each and every member of a FRATERNITY to have the same level of interest and attention than it is to expect that all car drivers will have the same level of education, training, attention level and interest as every other.
