[Tig] Don't know where this statement comes from, but it sounds like someone who is disaffected by past experiences with Masons. As the statement alludes, Masonry is not a "secret society," but a society with secrets. Some historians feel that Masonry grew out of the need for secrecy during the suppression of the Knights Templar, when exposure meant torture and death. As for a "family man" spending "far too much time" on the Craft, his Brothers will counsel him to spend the time he needs, but not to the exclusion of his family.

I don't know why the "secret society" moniker persists. Our rites and rituals are secretive, but otherwise we are as known and visible as any civic organization. Lodges are clearly marked with huge marquee signs in may cases indicating meeting times and other activities.
