Freemasonry is the largest and most widely established fraternal order in the world.
It is opposed by the Roman Catholic Church, yet the Pope, the Bishop and the Cardinal were all Masons!
Well, at least in Toronto around 1958. There was a C.P.R. afternoon yard job at Lambton Yard, known as the "Scale Job", it did all of the weighing of cars.
The ground crew included Norm Pope, and Jake Bishop, while the fireman was Harold Cardinal; and they were ALL MASONS!
