Lie for your brother
(Derwood, Maryland, USA)
I am interested in joining but 2 issues have me hesitant.
1. I read that you will never tell the truth about another brother if it will incriminate him. Great! I'm very loyal. But at the same time you must believe in God which tells us not to lie, how do the two requirements work together? I can understand if you refuse to comment (say in court or what-have-you) but to lie...? and what about within the Fraternity? If a Brother's integrity is being questioned by the Fraternity are you able to be open and honest then?
2. Time commitment. As a single man with two jobs and only 2 weekends a month off, I worry that I would not be able to give the time required. Some of that time off is dedicated to flying as I am a pilot (for self-enjoyment) and repairing my house that needs more work than expected when I recently purchased it.
Thank you in advance for your response!
