If I were to say to you that I am a stranger traveling from the East, seeking that which is lost...?

I don't know if the Masons have anything to do with the quote but it can be found in the movie, "The Mummy Returns".

Welcome to ATS by the way.

And the response would be: "I am a stranger traveling from the West, it is I whom you seek."

Or so it goes in hollywood land...

North, East, South, West, it's all good.


Seriously what difference would it make? It's their play.....

...if you're Michael Cain or Christopher Plummer...


Never caught that in the Mummy Returns; however it is prominent in the movie "The Man Who Would Be King."

If someone asked me that way, I would answer them with a question.

First, you'd have to be a Regular Mason in good standing.

You'd then have to have a Charter from the Grand Lodge of whatever state you are in. There is a process; you can't just set up shop and say "OK, we're a Lodge of Freemasons!"

You'd also need enough brethren with you to operate the lodge. There are requirements for being able to "work."

Funding is only part of it.

All Lodges are non-Christian inasmuch as they are non-sectarian fraternal societies..

In order to start a Lodge, you yourself would have to be a Master Mason, and would have to petition the Grand Lodge of your state, along with other Master Masons, to grant you a Charter authorizing the formation of a new Lodge.

If you just set up a Lodge on your own, without even being a Mason or having a Charter, it would of course be a fake.

Not to say that there aren't lodges that have been started by non-masons.

These lodges are considered irregular/nonrecognized lodges by the United Grand Lodge of England. And any Mason who visits an irregular lodge may have his membership suspended.

Prince Hall lodges were at one time considered irregular lodges I believe, but they are now recognized by the UGLE if I'm correct.

True. But the Prince Hall system was founded by legitimate Masons. A Grand Lodge cannot recognize a society founded by non-Masons.
