"One must be a Christian to be in the York Rite"


Close , but not quite right . For the sake of correctness , one must be a Christian to become a member of the Commandery . The Capitular and Cryptic degrees are open to men of all faiths , same as the Craft Lodge .

You are very close. One must be a Christian to be in the York Rite, but the Scottish Rite is for all faiths


Just a brief comment: in the York Rite, the Commandery (or Preceptory) requires candidates to be Christians, but the Lodge, Chapter, and Council are open to people of all faiths. In the United States and Canada, the Scottish Rite is open to people of all faiths, but in most other countries, including the UK, the Scottish Rite requires candidates to be Christians.


it does discuss Jesus Christ where the blue lodge doesn't mention a specific deity.


The Blue Lodge constantly mentions a specific Deity: the God of the Hebrew Patriarchs, who was the God of Solomon the King. This is the only God spoken of in the Blue Lodge (as well as in the Chapter, Council, and Commandery, for that matter).

Being a member of the Scottish Rite, I can only say that I wish we learned to play bagpipes. I can only imagine standing on the porch on Saturday morning about 7am and completely pissing off the neighbors. It would be epic.


I'm sure you'd make it onto the news even. Not every day one hears about death by bagpipe insertion....sideways.


I thought I'd read somewhere that listening to bagpipes was considered a form of torture up there with waterboarding?

Really? You're a twisted man, AM

I'd have skipped straight to point 2 (especially if the kilt malfunction was threatened somewhere around the dinner hour.

That isn't a Freemason ring, it's a Scottish Rite ring, and it belonged to a Prince.

The "7" on the ring is actually a Reish. We use the Samaritan script quite a bit, actually.


Where is your evidence to support this?

This is fairly common knowledge and can be easily verified by using any internet search engine.

I can't imagine anyone waking up to bagpipes and getting bent over it. I would think I woke up in heaven.

I love the pipes.

Hey Randy, how ya doin' brother?

It just so happens that I authored a nearly identical thread when I was just a baby ATSer about my father's ring.

Apparently, even among Masons, there is disagreement about the "7," Reish, or Yod on the ring. Mine has the same "7" as yours, but I've received different responses as to which symbol it really is.

BTW, a 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Mason is known as the "Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret," whatever that means. I'm hoping it has no relation to Dan Brown's books.

So even though I do agree it is a Scottish Rite ring, fingers still point to it being a masonic ring, which I do believe it is.

What a pleasure to hear from you corp. I have to get the owner over here tonight so she can read up on this thread . I can hardly wait to see her reactions to some of this knowledge. Apparently her Dad told her things she can not reveal. Just the same I want to see the looks she gives me when she reads this. It will hopefully tell me a few things. He he.

Spell check

Good luck with that. Masons are a tight-lipped bunch.

The Scottish Rite is part of Masonry but not all Masons are in the Scottish Rite hence the reason we refer to it as a Scottish Rite ring.

Yes, it is a Scottish Rite Masonic ring. The figure that some are calling a "7" is an imperfect rendition of the Hebrew letter Yod, which is to the Scottish Rite what the letter G is to the Craft Lodge.

All this talk of bagpipes got me going. Here's the roots of my Appalachian music ala redneck version. A lefty bagpiper to boot....

Enjoy...
