@ OP: Masonry itself I can not comment on.
What i can comment on is this: The principles of duality, as well as creation and sexual reproduction are all tied together, and are all important
principles in the occult.
Even the classic saying of mystics and occultists (which I have, to be fair, seen some masons reference) "As above, so below," is in one respect a
reference to duality. The figure of the hexagram, sometimes called "the star of david" is a symbol representing both "as above, so below" as well
as the union of opposites, and thus, sexual reproduction. One might argue that the square and compass of masonry could share similar symbolic
Of course, to an uptight, puritanical christian this might be seen as the worst kind of blasphemy-- holding the sexual act in sacred reverence.
However, this only goes to show how out of touch with true spirituality much of modern religion (especially Christianity and Islam) really is. Sexual
reproduction is a spiritual act as much as it is a physical one. Further, it is an act which was given to us by god, if you believe in such a creator.
I suspect, as many have suspected, that Christianity (and Islam) attempt to control the sex lives of their followers partly because they recognize the
spiritual, metaphysical power of the sexual act.
