The Constitutions of Free-Masons

James Anderson A.M.
Right Worshipful Fraternity of Accepted Free-Masons

Benjamin Franklin
Grand Master of Masons of Pennsylvania

PDF: Download


This is an online electronic edition of the the first Masonic book printed in America, which was produced in Philadelphia by Benjamin Franklin in 1734, and was a reprint of a work by James Anderson (who is identified as the author in an appendix) printed in London in 1723.

At some point, you may have had an encounter with a Freemason, either online or in person. Don’t worry, you don’t need to sanitize your palms or call Homeland Security, as they are generally good people.

The problem is, when attempting to learn anything about Freemasonry on this website, at least one will come along to “correct the record,” as well as kindly offer to answer any questions that you may have.


Unless a fellow Mason can shed light on the passage above, I'm not sure what can be gained by engaging any of them in conversation about their Craft. You may get a whiff, but it's ultimately a fruitless endeavor.

Take this as a lesson.

Interesting.

Question?... Does Augustus often discuss matters of our constitution with you so openly?

Meh, the imagination is always more colorful than reality (and some would argue they are not mutually exclusive) and so I prefer to think of the rather dull local Masons I know as donning ornate robes and flaying virgins for some elder demon-god when they gather at their halls...

as the reality is likely something more along the rationalist/humanitarian/free thinker/networking lines.

But who knows ... besides the Masons at 33 degree (or higher)? Bwa-ha-ha....

No. And inquiring minds are often met with tactful sarcasm.

He seems like a good guy and a good Mason, according to what I see around here.

Now I'm throwing some popcorn on the stove.

Mason's are first and foremost a fraternity therefore they look out for one another. Bloodlines and lineage are very important to them so having a son is a very good thing. They are expected to present themselves as pillars of the community which is taken very serious. Beyond that, I reckon it's really none of your business.


I knew two initiates ( if that's what they call new recruits) who didn't truly reflect the above statement. Incidentally, neither lasted a year.

They will all be here soon.

I'm not one who thinks the masons control everything.

But I do think there is a trend of
Them ganging up and discrediting anything that might expose them...

Which makes one wonder..

Because it adds to the mystique. Rosicrucianism the same approach.

a reply to: eisegesis Actually I think our dear masons are more a sect than a fraternity. I judge this by the way they operate. I have no interest in this type of religious and sub-religious practices and clubs, that we can sects, however I had one interesting meeting with some mormons which now make a good relation to the way masonry works...

the thing happened because I saved two of their kids from beating, and nevermind my reluctance I had to go to their temple and receive the thousand thanks plus some two thousand hidden ideological agendas tried to be sold to me meanwhile. Exactly like a Jew would sells a cow to an Arab. It was fun, but at some point I started to think I had have to leave these two boys to the Gods will and their beating


Masons use different pretexts, approaches, the songs seem different and so on... but in their behavioral essence they are like the darn mormons, or at least I see them like that, as an outsider. I see them as Salesmen. Just on a very intricate market.

You know guys... If I'm about to join a private club, we have one in the neighborhood, is about motocycle racing. To me is quite more attractive that any lodge. When you grab that bike and look to the eyes of your opponent you "know" in your heart all the secrets of the universe. So keep for yourselves the boring rites, ranking and theory. We have better. We have the fire within.

Rosinitiate, try walking your own path while remembering where your place is in life. Until I duly examine you abreast you receive zero recognition. That goes for any person walking this globe.

Some of us...many in fact...are Masons. Address this as such...no one likes someone on the outside telling us what, who and how we are or arent.

And we are only 1 of many whom has constitutions for their organizations. So? Why does this bother anyone else?
Want to know the real answers and more?

AMORC? What is that? Some faux Rosicrucian order? Are you claiming to be an initiate of The Rose Croix?

You are correct Kibric. True Rosicrucians do not involve themselves in activities such as ganging up - online or otherwise. However, charlatans do.

"Im a 360 degree mason and this post is bullocks. Masons only give to charity and pay for children's surgeries. Those books are hoaxs. Albert Pike never work for Freemasonry. We worship synthetic geometry but don't like being told what it is we are measuring"
