    One Sentence Description of Freemasonry

    Who's post are you replying to? I am guessing it is the original post by Bloke because it has the word men in it? For many mainstream Masons we cannot acknowledge co-Masonry as legitimate so we can only promote Freemasonry for men.

    One Sentence Description of Freemasonry

    Why reinvent the wheel. "Freemasonry is a system of morality, veiled in allegory, and illustrated by symbols."

    Good point Brother! I was very happy to see such a nonsense edict booted quickly.

    Tennessee Freemasons expelled a straight man for 'promoting homosexuality'

    Reminds me of when FL expelled anyone who wasn't from one of the 3 Abrahamic faiths around a decade ago. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk

    Tennessee Freemasons expelled a straight man for 'promoting homosexuality'

    I wonder if he wasn't trying to force an official GL stance with holding the trial there instead of his home lodge. Or maybe he thought he was getting a fairer hearing there. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk

    Tennessee Freemasons expelled a straight man for 'promoting homosexuality'

    Read this article on Reddit this morning. The original article appears to be behind a paywall but the full text of it is in the Reddit post linked below. As a Wisconsin Mason I have had gay Brothers since I joined and I never thought less of them or considered that their sexuality would make...

    No. No reason. There is nothing anyone here can do to help you join Freemasonry in the UAE. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk

    Sorry, but you should have joined while still in Ghana. You won't be able to join in UAE. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk

    Are you a Freemason living in UAE?
  11. Winter

    Greeting!!!

    Not in UAE there isn't. And if you are a woman as your profile suggests, you will need to find a location that recognizes Co-Masonry as mainstream jurisdictions prohibit women from joining..

    Understanding the Handbook

    We don't know where you are. Every jurisdiction will have material unique to that Grand Lodge. I personally think this needs to be a discussion to have with the WM you will potentially be serving under instead of here. You will get much more relevant information to help you.

    Ukraine

    Well, for all we know you're a top notch operator with oodles of experience in dangerous situations and will be just fine. Though it doesn't sound like it. And while your goal in helping Brothers who may need it is laudable, the only thing you're likely to accomplish by going there is to need...

    Am in iraq Bagdad can someone direct me please

    I do not believe Iraq has any legitimate lodges at this time, with the exception of any Military Lodges for servicemembers deployed to there. You may need to move to a country like Lebanon to become a Freemason Predominantly Muslim countries usually make Freemasonry illegal. Good luck in your...

    Ukraine

    As with anything dealing with a foreign jurisdiction, your first point of contact must always be your own Grand Lodge, usually through your Lodge Secretary. Otherwise you risk putting yourself afoul of your own GL regulations. That being said, there are already numerous venues that have been...

    The Criticality of our Individual Degrees and Catechisms

    I agree. And I would ammend the argument that the most important point made in the article is the individuality of each degree as a part of preserving the initiatic process. Lumping candidates in together and performing degrees for multiple candidates either simultaneously or even separately all...

    The Criticality of our Individual Degrees and Catechisms

    An excellent article this morning on The Midnight Freemasons by W. Bro. William H. Boyd about how important it is for each new Freemason to experience each degrees and returning their catechism individually. I couldn't agree more. One Day Classes, running multiple candidates through together...
