We are honest and we are good but we do not discuss matters of the Lodge with non-Masons. When you make a wish, do you tell what you wished for?

Of course. I understand.

I think the red box on the pillar is an old projector. Maybe it projects a light show onto this obvious display? You can easily tell that the men are not real by the shoulders and the head shape. But it seems like they may use this for ceremony purposes.

The red box is a ballot box. It is used to vote on things, it's where the term "blackballed" came from. the white ball elects, and the black cube rejects. (which makes the term blackballed seem even stranger)

If your Grandmother was on her deathbed and asked you to swear not to tell a soul about what she was to reveal.......would you?

this photo is so rich in detail showing a lot of symbolic artifacts.
I would say it is authentic to some sort of Masonic Order.
I know the different "rites" Scottish Rite & York Rite are more secretive than a regular Masonic lodge. I have been in Masonic temples and Shriner's temple as a kid on "family day" events.
I have never been into the inner chambers, so to say of a Scottish Rite Temple or York Rite Temple.
It was forbidden to outsiders including family.
My father was a 32 degree Mason, Shriner and York Rite.
He was a good man, not an evil cabalist. I never saw or heard the bad side of the Masonic order. I know my dad and he would not have tolerated it.
I think it must be only a small faction of inner sanctum types that do the secretive illuminati stuff. Perhaps people like my dad were the "unknowing face" or "false facade"


My guess is this is a photo of some sort of acceptance ceromony for a new member or a member being tested or accepted to the "next level".

OP like you and many others here I am truely intriqued by this photo and want to know more!


Stars and flags
Peace and love

white ball elects and the black ball rejects. Here in Ontario at lest with my Lodge we don't use black cubes, but black balls.
================
As to the picture to me it looks like a display of old regalia from the Masons, Royal Arch & Eastern Star. And I am guessing Knights Templar

It's the A.L.G.D.G.A.D.U.
A dominican masonic lodge.
The word ''A.L.G.D.G.A.D.U. '' is written over the central guy in the photo.

I noticed that too. Even though I knew of the black ball I never saw the box.

Dunn NC!
I've got in-laws (more like outlaws:lol
in Lillington. I'm sure you and I know some of the same names from around those parts.


I'd tell you if you promise not to judge me on my relations.

we have cubes, I guess so you can feel the difference, as well as see the color. I am glad someone has balls.

At least now the term "blackballed" make more sense now.

We wouldn't be if you haven't posted your very clear and eloquent picture!
I'll be going now that we know that the photo come from a dominican sect.
Bye.

I wonder why the freemansons are so secretive. if they don't want conspiracy theories, why don't they open up and allow the rest of us to join?


Do you really want to ride the goat?


Yeah, thought so

I recognize this as a Scottish Rite Masonic Lodge of the Continental Tradition which includes all degrees from 1-33. The photo is taken from the Senior Warden's station facing the East, the cordons of the officers are at the chairs of their offices and they staged the robes at the desk of the secretary, WM and Orator. It differs very little from my own lodge e.g. instead of a chain encircling the Lodge we use a knotted cord.
