Do you have any family members who are freemasons? If yes, how do you deal with it? Would you invite a freemason to anything church related? (like a baptism or first Communion)
Unfortunately, my dad is involved in this. I was shocked when he told me a couple of years ago. In a way, I'm not surprised because he loves things that are elite and not for 'common people.' He was an atheist when he was younger but several years ago professed some kind of general theism. Nowdays he's into esoteric spirituality and has embraced many Christian heresies. I'm absolutely disgusted by his membership in this group and don't want to include him in anything church related when it comes to my family. I didn't invite him to my son's baptism for example. I want to keep this filth as far away from my child as possible.
Am I overreacting or being sensible? Can his membership in the lodge hurt my family in any way? (I don't want to be superstitious but the whole thing seriously freaks me out).
I can't have an adult conversation with my dad because he just laughs at everything and tells me that he is enlightened and knows the truth, while I'm indoctrinated by a belief system that controls uneducated people.
