    Why should it be a problem to be gay? In Germany it's no problem and if someone found his love I'm happy about it :)

    Most people don't seem to mind. Others may just be uncomfortable with it due to religious views I think or they just aren't comfortable with it in general. As a matter of fact, statistically, there is likely at least one or two gay men in most lodges and the other fellas just don't know it since it is not apart of the screening process.

    That would be an issue for the particular lodge whenever it comes before them to decide. If there's a silence in the law then it's open discussion for them to exercise their will & pleasure.

    Lodges are strange sometimes though. Just like the people who make up their membership. Rather than vote with their own hearts and mind, some guys just go with the flow. Supposedly 'to preserve peace & harmony within'. Yeah right.
