Unless I'm sorely mistaken PH and A.F. & A.M. lodges in TX now enjoy full recognition and fraternal relations with one another.

For whatever reason a Mason decides to "demit", other commitments, whatever, is there a means in which said person can regain his place in the Brotherhood? I know that a Mason becomes an "apprentice", becomes a member of the "Fellow Craft", then are raised to "Master Mason". Does this have to be redone? Or further, can an ex-Mason rejoin?
Please, serious discussion only. If you aren't a Mason and have something to say, please back it up with credible sources.

In some cases, a Mason who moves from one jurisdiction to another may not be able to maintain a dual membership due to rules of the Grand Lodge(s) or whatever, so he would have to demit from the Lodge he used to be a member of (and get a letter of good standing or have it mailed to the new Lodge) and petition for membership at the new Lodge.
I don't have any credible sources to back that up.

Once you are a Freemason, you may leave the fraternity, but you aren't going to be rid of that special something.
Pay the dues and your welcome to come right back unless you've been naughty or dishonest.
