Indiana Lodge Struck By Lightning

My Brothers up at Howard Lodge No. 93 in Kokomo, Indiana got a surprise yesterday when hellacious thunderstorms roared through the state. About 11 AM, a lightning bolt whacked the temple's rooftop chimney, knocking bricks to the ground.

Glad no one was hurt.

First anti-Mason who makes some dirty crack about Masons being struck by lightning gets it. We know where you live.

  1. If the AntiMasons start up, remind them that York Minster, the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of York here in England, was struck by lighting a few days after David Jenkins (considered quite close to being outside the pale by "orthodox" theologians) was consecrated Bishop of Durham.

    who has now another reason to be glad for Goliath's not owning a building: no chance of lightning striking it.

  2. Well, while there are a lot of Masons who could benefit from lightening, lightning is another story altogether :)
