Order of Knight Masons


In the United States, Freemasons are not supposed to ask for membership in Knight Masonry, but rather wait to be invited. One is required to be a Royal Arch Freemason in good standing in his lodge and chapter, be recommended for membership, and pass a unanimous ballot.


Congratulations. How long did you wait to be invited?

My point being that a few previous posts claiming to be Masons don't seem to be aware of this process.

A man's Faith is as much his own as his Reason is. His Freedom consists as much in his faith being free as in his will being uncontrolled by power. All the Priests and Augurs of Rome or Greece had not the right to require Cicero or Socrates to believe in the absurd mythology of the vulgar. All the Imaums of Mohammedanism have not the right to require a Pagan to believe that Gabriel dictated the Koran to the Prophet. All the Brahmins that ever lived, if assembled in one conclave like the Cardinals, could not gain a right to compel a single human being to believe in the Hindu Cosmogony. No man or body of men can be infallible, and authorized to decide what other men shall believe, as to any tenet of faith. Except to those who first receive it, every religion and the truth of all inspired writings depend on human testimony and internal evidences, to be judged of by Reason and the wise analogies of Faith. Each man must necessarily have the right to judge of their truth for himself; because no one man can have any higher or better right to judge than another of equal information and intelligence.


I rang long ago, dear, long ago.
And yet I was abandoned to face the trials and seek the answers in solitude.

You are talking about invitational bodies WITHIN the Fraternity . These are bodies for men who are ALREADY Masons .

Do not tell me how Masonry works , I am a Grand Lodge officer , I know the rules . One MAY not ask non-Masons to join in mine and most other jurisdictions , PERIOD . AS Augustus already stated , one asks for a petition of their own Freewill and accord , but a Mason (or two in my jurisdiction) in good standing must recommend him . Two very different things .

You may want to take your own advice and look in your local yellow pages , call a lodge and ask them yourself .

I can see how being the grand daughter of a mason might make you have knowledge that others do not, but you are speaking to actual masons here. The kind that go to lodge meetings and are very active in the fraternity.

We know what masonry is and know the rules. In masonry all over the US it is not acceptable to invite a member to join. It is against the rules and can get you expelled.

To become a mason, all a man must do is ask a mason, and from there the ball get's rolling. The prospective initiate fills out the paperwork. It is read in front of the lodge. An investigation committee is formed. The members of the investigation committee report on the ability of the member to be a good mason. Then that man is voted upon. If accepted, he starts his journey. In every step of his journey, he is asked multiple times, it this was of his own free will and accord. Meaning, did anyone force you into this.

Maybe it's different where you live, I cannot say, but I can say that it's very different from what you say where I and the other ATS masons reside.

Okay , since you know more about my Fraternity than I , let me clear this up for you , here is the portion on my constitution . Trial Code , Section 2 (K) (15)

(15) Soliciting petitions for initiation into Masonry is a violation of Masonic law, is contrary to the accepted teaching of the fraternity, and unmasonic

Meaning : One MAY NOT ask (invite) a non-Mason to join or petition Freemasonry .

Your veneer is so thin I can see through it. I gave you an example of a Jewish trick in the link so obviously no matter what you will argue and blow hot air no matter what the facts are.

I use the same one all the time.

My wife is Jewish (sort of), so whenever something gets screwed up in the house I always blame it on the 'Jooooos'.

REPLY to all the frat boy posts that followed my last post:

Then the person who answered the telephone at the Masonic Lodge in my City must have LIED to me.

I specifically inquired about membership in the Masons, being interested due to my Grandparents
involvement, my Occupation at the time, and my possession of Pike's book.

I was specifically told "you have to be invited by another Mason if you want to join the lodge."
You may want to inform your lodge staff of your rules and regulations, and start taking the names
of people who call on you.

It doesn't matter. I've read Pike's book and I Studied Comparative World Religions in College.
I know enough... Mason's make people paranoid, and that is the foundation of their power.

I am so out of here.

You family's background, your occupation and your ownership of particular books are irrelevant to becoming a member. You must want to join because you are prepared to join, not that someone feels you should be joining.


I was specifically told "you have to be invited by another Mason if you want to join the lodge."


I find that rather odd. What state are you in? As I explained earlier, in my jurisdiction you would be liable for expulsion for inviting anyone and the candidate would also be expelled as you are asked several times in the initiation if you have 'come of your own free will and accord'.

Additionally, with you being female I do not understand why they would even be discussing membership with you unless this is a co-Masonry group or a women's only type of Masonry which would make the type of Masonry we typically discuss here and make reference to (Regular Masonry) rules irrelevant.


I've read Pike's book and I Studied Comparative World Religions in College.

Morals and Dogma is really only relevant to Scottish Rite Masons in the south and is irrelevant to the large majority of Masons in general. It has no bearing on Blue Lodge activities and membership.

What did this imbecilic video have to do with either the topic or Masonry as neither one is mentioned at any point in it?

How does one go about selling a soul to the Jooos? Can you outline the process for all of us?
