I have no problem accepting that many Masons are honest and upright citizens, who contribute to charitable works and never take advantage of their membership to either give themselves an advantage or to disadvantage someone who is not a member.

I do have a problem with the irrefutable fact that SOME Masons don't behave like this, and use their membership of the organisation in order to further their own aims, and some put their loyalty to fellow Masons above their loyalty to their employer, even when that employer is the Crown. It seems that this is an issue that the main organisation that runs Freemasonry in the UK is either unable to, or has little interest in, bring under control or stamp out. If we heard a bit more about Masons that had been thrown out for using their membership as a way to further their own interests then perhaps the organisation as a whole might improve it's public image a bit.
