    RMM-058: The Three Lesser Lights and TBOP XXXIII

    RMM-058: The Three Lesser Lights and TBOP XXXIII

    After maybe nine months after being asked, Ben was finally able to attend a session of the Masonic Legacy Society. In this episode, Ben shares his experience during one of the sessions and posits why the format the Society has adopted is so effective - for prompting reflection, for articulating and sharing discovery, and for bringing light to your Brethren in masonry. We become the change we wish to see in the Fraternity. This format is a strong step in facilitating that becoming. 
    And... Ben wraps the episode with Chapter XXXIII of the Three Books of Occult Philosophy, "Of the Seals and Characters of Natural Things."

    RMM-057: Update on the Grand Lodge SC; Is There Efficacy in Masonic Ritual?; TBOP XXXII

    RMM-057: Update on the Grand Lodge SC; Is There Efficacy in Masonic Ritual?; TBOP XXXII

    After a two week hiatus following the death of his Dad, the RMM returns, but popular demand, with an update on the Grand Sessions of the Grand Lodge of South Carolina. Masonic procedure may seem like pomp and circumstance 99% of the time. But when needed, the rules of assembly Masons adopt prove their worth. 
    Then, is there efficacy in Masonic ritual outside the intent of the Brethren working the degrees? Yes! Listen to find out why.
    Finally, we return to the Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Chapter XXXII, for more on the heavenly virtues and their corresponding manifestations upon the Earth.

    RMM-056- Special on South Carolina, Anonymous Communication from the GLSC

    RMM-056- Special on South Carolina, Anonymous Communication from the GLSC

    On April 15 I received an anonymous email from a person claiming to be a Past Grand Officer of the Grand Lodge of South Carolina. He claimed to have incontrovertible evidence that Mike Smith violated the Grand Master's Edict, that he held a Zoom meeting that was more than a simple "wellness check" and constituted a business meeting for the Scottish Rite. The evidence? A copy of an email from Mike Smith and screenshots of the Zoom meeting. 
    But what possible dispensation would a Scottish Rite valley need from a Grand Master of Masons to hold a business meeting in whatever format its own membership found agreeable? 
    Additional problems in this anonymous Past Grand Lodge Officer's interpretation of Masonic law abound.

    RMM-055: Interview with Billy Wall, Secretary of Union-Kilwinning No. 4 in South Carolina

    RMM-055: Interview with Billy Wall, Secretary of Union-Kilwinning No. 4 in South Carolina

    The Grand Lodge of South Carolina meets this Thursday, April 22, at 10 a.m. in Charleston, SC. Ahead of what is sure to be a contentious session, we interview W.Bro. Billy Wall, the Secretary of Union-Kilwinning No. 4. In December 2020 the Grand Master and Deputy Grand Master showed up at Union-Kilwinning to arrest their Charter. Billy, his son, and some of the Officers have been charged with unmasonic conduct for holding a meeting of 6 Masons after, allegedly, an edict was pronounced that required a minimum of 7. While this requirement from the Grand Lodge is contrary to the ritual and the ancient usages and customs of the Craft, and while the Constitution of SC mandates that an edict must be properly noticed, the Grand Lodge nonetheless took offense to Union-Kilwinning's meeting, barged into their Lodge and demanded the Charter. As seems to be something of a pattern of behavior under this Grand Master, a special Trial Commission was hurriedly appointed most probably to simply expel W.Bro. Billy and the Brethren of Union-Kilwinning No. 4 ahead of the Grand Sessions meeting in just five days.
    Check out the record of events at Union-Kilwinning's website, https://unionkilwinning.org.

    RMM-054: Antidepressants and Homicide in the USA

    RMM-054: Antidepressants and Homicide in the USA

    In this episode, Ben explores the controversial but well documented correlation between certain antidepressant drugs and homicidal mania. 

    Nearly every mass shooter seems to have a history with this class of drugs, including Eric Harris (Columbine), who was on Luvox, and James Holmes (Aurora movie theater), who was prescribed a high dose of Zoloft. 
    Could these drugs lead to a type of emotional disassociation, where the reward-reflex is vitiated, and a type of bio-chemical echo builds a lethal impulse? Or is it just access to firearms?

    RMM-053: Mackey Rolls in his Grave! More Shenanigans at the Grand Lodge of South Carolina!

    RMM-053: Mackey Rolls in his Grave! More Shenanigans at the Grand Lodge of South Carolina!

    We reluctantly bring you this breaking news from the GLSC where charges of unmasonic conduct have been filed against the Grand Master and his officers for, essentially, dereliction of duty for failing to hold an annual Grand Lodge as soon as reasonably practicable (or by alternative means necessary under the present COVID situation) and for, by the sounds of things, abuses of power.

    The Grand Lodge is the members in lodge assembled. It is not the officers of the Grand Lodge. And it sure 'aint the Grand Master who must answer at each annual convocation to the Brethren it is his honor to serve. 

    In February we reported on the ongoing problems in S Carolina where the Grand Master was, apparently, overreaching his mandate in officiously preventing online meetings of masons (whether "in lodge" or not). He seized charters. He even expelled the SGIG. 

    Now Union-Kilwinning Lodge No. 4 is striking back.

Timothy Hogan

Thank you for the Podcast on Timothy Hogan. I’m not a Mason, but very interested. I heard about Timothy over a year ago on another podcast and proceeded to follow him on Instagram. But the titles he’s used in his bio didn’t make sense to me. And now your episode confirms my thoughts. I don’t honor people that are posers.... I will be promptly unfollowing him on IG. Thank you sir.

Pathetic

This show is terrible and the host is a stalker who has nothing better to do than trash talk other people to make himself feel better! Bwahahaaa pathetic!!!!! This guy is the farthest thing from a Mason you could possibly be!!!!

This show is like nothing else.

This show is dynamic and inviting. The host actually asks his listeners to write to him for topics of interest and promptly includes those in the shows. He is responsive to questions and sharing his both his encyclopedic resources of ancient Masonic wisdom and the keen insight he has accessed from its study. This gives the listener a shortcut through all the usual window dressing, IF he has eyes to see, hears to hear and a heart to understand.

Yet there is something for everyone in this show as it is presented on many levels.
