Twitchy, I asked you for an answer to my question (Why is the Trinity Memorial Masonic?) in your own words but you instead cited an additional obelisk
which you felt was 'Masonic' in origins. I do not know how many other ways I can phrase the question.
The alleged 'Masonic' nature of the Vance memorial is no more so than the Trinity monument as well. Even though Vance was a Freemason he was also a
Confederate hero, a Senator and, most nobley, a supporter of the rights of others. The monument was dedicated to his endeavors, not his Masonic
In regards your quips dealing with Prince Hall, all Masonic jurisdictions are seperate and it is contingent upon the indivdual Grand Lodge to
recognize our Prince Hall brothers. As of this time I believe 37 of the 51 Grand Lodges enjoy mutual recognition. As a side note, odd how this fact
alone goes a long way to disprove some sort of nationally controlling Masonic hierarchy.
