The secrets of Freemasonry are not secret anymore.
The "oaths" are nothing but symbolic. To assume otherwise is to prove yourself not a Mason.
Religion....the question asked (at least here ) is; "In whom do you put your trust?"
The answer is "God"; or Whomever your religion calls it's Supreme Being.
The Freemasons accept all from different religions, as long as the person believes in a Supreme Being.
Albert Pike wrote a book for the Southern Jurisdiction of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, in about 1871. I have a 1949 edition of the book, which I
wouldn't care about, other than a bunch of antimasons like to quote/misquote from it.
Most Freemasons haven't heard about this book...let alone read it.
The Freemasons have no agenda, other than to provide assistance to our youth...be it childrens hospitals, or our local youth charity.
A Freemason is not a Satanist or Lucifer worshiper...one who does such would not be admitted as a member.
Lies are definately not a typical attribute of a Mason....The creedence of Brotherly Love...Relief, and Truth are....
