As word broke about the Masonic Temple was the target of a mass shooting plot many questioned why. Both the Masons and members of the Muslim community have the same questions.
It was business as usual at the Tripoli Shrine Temple despite word breaking that an arrest targeting a Milwaukee Masonic center had happened. The temple is specifically for Shriners, but they are all Masons.
"Free Masonary is the oldest and largest fratenity in the world, it can be traced back to Christ time," says Jim Christie, Tripoli Shriner Recorder.
