One of the most common things that anti-Masons do is begin to list examples of the evils of Freemasonry.
From the perspective of the 'Religious Intolerant', these evils are many. Masons permit prayers to be given without reference to Jesus Christ (which they would argue shouldn't be done) or that Masons cause a man to spend time with the fraternity which might otherwise be devoted to the Church.
