5) Q: Why not atheists?
A: What is a man who believes in nothing? Atheist have never been accepted as Templar?s. We keep this term to deter those that use it to hide against the truth. If the wonder is seen and not called God but physics, mathematics, nature, life force or a thousand other things then you are welcome. We want members to be not only aware of but also involved in the wonder we are part of... however you name it... This does not mean being involved in a church but more the one who see's.. Whether scientist, musician, artist or poet as much as warrior mystic.
6) Q: Are you a religious organization?
A: No. Belief, faith, or understanding is required but the discussion of religion is NOT pushed in anyway in the chapters. No Brother/Sister may try to convert his Brother/Sister, but respect their choice and expression of it. Like the freedom of speech quote "I may not agree with what you're saying but I'll defend your right to say it". We will not & do not try to convert, nor do we preach.

A: Anything 500cc's or over. We do not care what type of mount one rides. Are forefathers mounts were of different colors and types.
8) Q: Are all the chapters the same?
A: No. Each chapter operates within the national by-laws. But, each chapter has their own guide lines and requirements. Contact your local chapter and ask! Everyone of the chapters are friendly. They would be happy to interact with you.
Remember that evil triumphs if good men sit idle...
