    Posted: July/17/2013 at 7:08am
Hey guys. First off I want to say that this thread is in no way designed to become a commentary on the underlying George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin trial/DOJ investigation. Should ANYONE steer off course I certainly hope that the mods lock this thread immediately. This thread only deals with whether or not 2 men are members in a Masonic organization.

I am writing this post because someone posted an article on my facebook that alleged that BOTH George Zimmerman's father and Trayvon's father are freemasons. It was a conspiracy site, it didn't mention any lodge name, numbers, or Grand lodge names. It merely had blanket accusations. Based on that, I went off and did some of my own research. I was unable to find anything that says George Zimmerman's father is a Freemason. I did however run across this photograph:


The fez seems to say "Int'l" on it, and Ft. Lauderdale. I can't make out much more than that. Based on what I know of the area, I'd say that this was a photograph of masons from "International F&AM." Does anyone have any further information about this? 

I'm wondering if the photo was doctored?

IFAM is correct.   The 'key' under the S&C is their emblem and wearing of a Fez as Masons is their norm.

Admin Note:   Any discussion of the Zimmerman trial will be deleted.   That is beyond the scope of these forums and too racially charged.   Everyone has their opinion, leave it at that.    ... find other forums to discus the case if you must.

billy the kid was purported to be a mason.

Remember, Masonic ideals are innocent in their raw form. It is how the man himself acts that separates him from that innocence.

First, I would not condemn masonry because of a family relationship with someone else.

Secondly, I find it funny that conspiracy sites grab this far to defame our fraternity.

I'm actually going to post the link to the website. I was hesitant because the website itself addresses the underlying issues of the zimmerman/martin case, but I trust that the forum members can be respectful enough to keep it on topic as to solely whether the 2 fathers are Masons.


The pertinent parts were:

Quote As reported over 1 year ago on C.K.H.i.D., this case was likely to be a failed example of justice from the first day of discovery.    George Zimmerman is the son of a retired Virginia judge who is a high ranking Freemason.   The ‘freemason society’ operated within America’s society and globally is a ‘truth society’ that is above the law, whether general citizens choose to believe it or not.  While George could never be a high-ranking member of the group as a Mixed Latin-White American according to former Freemason members, his father who is white, is an elite member.

and

Quote Update* Per reader’s request.  Everyone should be aware by now that Trayvon Martin’s father is also a freemason.  However, he is a Prince Hall Freemason.   The judicial / legal system does not ‘favor’ PHF’s members as they do their own.  It’s also said by several ex-members of Freemason chapters from Denver to Georgia that only white men are allowed past a certain degree in Freemason ranks of the world.  No Hispanic ( of color ), Black, or Asian members are usually allowed into the elite status.  Those Freemasons that think they know, have no idea.

Got to say the green fez looks horrible. 

Green fez+gold tassel+black suit+blue apron=odd combination

An elite member? That's something that only exists for the sole purpose of levying anti-Masonic animus.

I've seen the same picture of Tracy Martin wearing a fez and apron except he was pictured with a white guy so I'm gonna guess that photo was doctored. I've also read Tracy Martin was a Piru Blood so...

was discussing this with a p.h. brother I know last night. he was livid. seems some people think the internationals are somehow p.h.a.

his entire lodge is fit to be tied over that photo.

also seems internationals make up the rules as they go along.

Zimmerman's father? I don't think anyone has confirmed that he is even a mason at all.
