No, women cannot be Freemasons. But I think there is an affliated women's group?

it's called WIVES

I think it's called The Order of the Eastern Star and you have to be a daughter or wife of a Mason.
A Unity Church I belonged to met in the local Masonic Lodge and they wanted our minister to join. Very nice people, they are devoted to providing medical care for children and they raise the money for their hospitals by riding the little cars and other things at fairs. 

Catholics are forbidden to join, as I understand it, because in order to be a Mason you have to be privy to secrets you cannot reveal and the Catholic Church doesn't approve of that.

As far as I know Unity churches don't believe Jesus is diety

It's been a few years, but I believe they do. I went to the Unitarian church when I moved here because there was too much emphasis on Christianity in the Unity church for my comfort.

Brisco, you kill me  :D

I'm going to take this thread wayyyy off base now - but I thought Unity churches were not the same as Unitarian churches?

They are totally different churches, though both are open-minded places with an emphasis on respect for individual beliefs, no dogma.
 
Unity church is more about praying, Unitarian is more about celebrating what you learn in your own search. Both are pretty wonderful IMO.

And neither one demands you be on a diet.  ;D

Yes, that is what it is called.  My grandmother was a member of the Eastern Star.

Ok, this is the funniest thing I think I have heard in a long time. People who criticize Bono are just haters and they r jealous.

You do realize the sign of the Eastern Stars is a pentagram.  The objective of Freemasons is not good, neither r the Shriners. I was asked to join The Eastern Stars but I said NO. I knew they were not good.

Do you know the origins of the pentagram and its ancient meaning?
