These are instructions for you to start using one of the simplist Hypertext
Type programs. I have included list.com in this zip-file. After you read this
go to prompt>
Type the words: list.com you will then be in list.com
it will say:
You type the name of file: In this case sbc.txt
This looks like new file:list.com
You then use [enter] [pge up] [pge down] [up arrow] [down arrow]
to navagate around the text. x will exit list.com
It will display a list of commands. See bottom of screen when your in list.com.
It is designed to be extremely simple to understand & user friendly. Just
one more thing; This project has taken almost 2 (two) months of my time and all
of my Christmas holiday was spent trying not to let the material involved get
me angry or upset & so more prone to unwanted errors.
This is not a "bootleg" copy, near the begining of the SBC.TXT file you
will discover that a release from the author is included allowing reproduction
of his work. (This wasn't intended to be ludicrous, just doing things on the
level, & in a square manner) Please consider this effort as you would any
*SHAREWARE* piece of PC-Software. Your donations (after you evaluate the
project, of course) are badly needed, so we can attempt to send a copy to
the 100+ F.& A.M. Grand Lodges in the U.S. (including the Prince Hall of
course) then an additional 50 A.F. & A.M. Grand Lodges.
It is our hope that *SOMEWHERE* somebody or organization will file a
proper *LAWSUIT* to try & recover from the damage that this booklet has done
to Freemasonry, including the loss of new Candidates, who may have been
affected should they be part of the Southern Baptist Faith. It is difficult
to imagine this kind of vicious attack upon any group today without any fears
of *LEGAL RECOURSE* or protracted litigation; but the Masonic Fraternity is
so decentralized, that it is obvious the we may have benifitted by adopting
Br. George Washington's idea of someone acting as sort of National Grandmaster
General who could act in the interests of the Fraternity in general when
something like this, that affects us all comes up.
At least we will try & make the various "Grand Master's Conventions"
aware of this, as well as the various branches of the Masonic Family. Everyone
should read this, as many people are talking about it, but other than myself,
and you, dear BBS user, but very few people outside of the Southern Baptist
Convention have actually had the opportunity to see this for themselves.
So please send a donation of $5.00 or $7.00 and we will put you on our
mailing list & inform you of updates in this situation. You might also
think about calling our BBS at (510)-644-9307 andbecoming a registered member.
In all of last year we only had about 1/2 dozen people who sent in their
registration dues, & it's costly to run a good board.
