I had an interesting experience a couple of months ago. I found a copy of Morals and Dogma by Albert Pike and anyway, on two different occasions while reading it my little Dachunds barked hysterically like there was a stranger in the house. Whatever it was it seemed to follow me around. I could tell they were barking at something behind me. They also were trembling and shaking.

People doing 'scholarly research' from outside Freemasonry always seem to get referred to the same books. I agree entirely with rahboni that the place of these oft-quoted tomes (especially Pike) is nowhere in the current position and future vision of Freemasonry.

Freemasonry requires a belief in a Supreme Being. You are not asked about your religious denomination when you join, but as an atheist or agnostic you could not join with your integrity intact.

Freemasonry exists with subtle variations around the world, but all recognised Grand Lodges are in fraternal relations with one another. They adhere to the core principles rahboni has mentioned, then manage their affairs independently of one another. For example, there are more affiliated groups brought about to involve the families of Masons in the US than elsewhere.

To get information to form an opinion about Freemasonry in your own area, contact the local Grand Lodge and get them to send you their literature. Don't rely on irrelevant and dated material.

BTW, I can have public disagreements with any Freemason but I would not do it in a way that affects the harmony of my own Lodge.


Hmm, As I have little hair. bad days seem to be short and few in appearance!

A prod.


A poke.


A spike.

You are still very much entitled to them.

Most Freemasons I know don't have much hair either.
