You feel it's explicitly implied that Supreme Being means monotheism? Well, the standard definition of Supreme Being makes no implications whatsoever
that Supreme Being means belief in one and only one God.
So if you are making the choice to leave it implied you are not using the standard definition of Supreme Being, and you make the choice to not ask how
the candidate interprets the question, you make the choice to be completely ignorant of whether or not they are in fact a genuine monotheist.
It seems crystal clear that in practice, the requirement is simply a belief in God and explicitly not a belief in one and only one God.
You have completely failed to demonstrate that it's a binding and enforced rule in regular Freemasonry that you believe in the existence of one and
only one God. Linking quotes of landmarks and interpretations of landmarks does NOTHING to prove the landmark is binding and enforced.
Do you understand the distinction between an enforced rule and an unenforced rule? Do you understand that despite your personal interpretation, the
generally accepted definition of Supreme Being simply means God, and it explicitly does not mean monotheism?
