What about the Loyal Order of Water Buffaloes Lodge No. 26? This is the lodge Fred and Barney belonged to. I knew there was something shady about that Barney Rubble!
I don't think Christians should belong to secret organizations either.
As a child, the BPOE Elks sponsored our little league team, our BSA troop, and numerous activities. Like any community orginazition, it is only as good as the people involved.
Often clubs sponsor bars, trips (Vegas, AC) and sports related gambling. If you dig deep enough, you may find roots in the prohibition era (speakeasies).
Often you find people who just want to get awayfrom it all for a little while. Sometimes they offer venues for first aid/CPR training, community services, and promote patriotism. From my memory there were Masons in the Elks, but Elks were not Masons.
Again any club is only as good as the members. If you find the club/its activities objectionable, steer clear.
The neon Pabst Blue Ribbon sign works for me - (Closed venue)
It's ALL about Jesus. The Son of God - Emanuel - The Mighty God - Our Salvation.

Secret societies are all cut from the same die
seen one, seen em all
not for born again believers
That should tell you enough
