    Thanks for clearing that up, I was relying too much on the information on that particular blog.

    Bro Glen, thanks! I think u am i had a conversation about Koon once before. Couple more questions...was any FreeMasonic(see what I did there @coachn) action taken against koon? And why did a previous GM of the GEKT fell compelled to form a clandestine organisation?

    No Masonic action was taken against Br Koon. Why did he form it? I shall leave others to speculate.

    So in other words, a gentleman started an appendent body, came up with his own rituals etc and is now recognized by freemasonry ?

    Not quite :)

    A gentleman started an appendent body, used authentic rituals etc, was heavily critizied as it was done in a clandestine way, and shut down the organisation because of this.

    Interesting, Explain authentic ritual ? If he created this organization, where did he get the ritual without writing it himself ?

    He didn't create the organization...he started a second organization with a similar name....he started the Grand Priory of the Reformed and Rectified Rite of the U.S.A and the Great priory of America already existed.....

    The ritual is from the second half of the 18th century and is not that hard to get hold of if you are ready to travel. In this case he got the ritual from the Great Priory of Occitania which is a clandestine organisation.
