We have enjoyed the redneck jokes for years. Here's an interesting spin that you might enjoy. We all respect the core beliefs of a culture that values home, family, country and God. If I had to stand before a dozen terrorists who threaten my life, I'd choose a half dozen or so Masons to back me up.

You might be a Mason if: It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, "One nation, under God.
You might be a Mason if: You've never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places
You might be a Mason if: You still say " Christmas" instead of "Winter Festival."
You might be a Mason if: You bow your head when someone prays.
You might be a Mason if: You stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem.
You might be a Mason if: You treat vets with great respect, and always have.
You might be a Mason if: You've never burned an American flag.
You might be a Mason if: You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.
You might be a Mason if: You respect your elders and expect your kids to do the same.
You might be a Mason if: You'd give your last dollar to a friend...
