You claims to all have religions yet your oaths are full of pagan symbolism and thus forbidden by religion yet you place your right hand on a Bible, Quran, Gita, Tora during the ritual.
What about such oaths...
"...binding myself under no less a penalty that that of having my body severed in twain, my bowels taken out and burned to ashes, the ashes scattered to the four winds of heaven..."
"...In willful violation whereof may I incur the fearful penalty of having my eyeballs pierced to the center with a three-edged blade, my feet flayed and I be forced to walk the hot sands upon sterile shores of the Red Sea until the flaming Sun shall strike me with a livid plague, and may ___, the God of ___, the God of our fathers, support me to the entire fulfillment of the same"
Are these masonic oaths? I heard oaths differ from lodge to lodge?
The Masons have no religion and do not require members to be of any religion, only to believe in the One Creator of All.
As to the oath, as you have shown, it differs from Order to Order and is nothing more than a sacred promise to be faithful to the Order.
Stop seeing too deep into it, there is nothing there.
