    Because it's in a book that someone wrote its true??hmm that's like saying they don't put nothing on the internet unless it's true.... in my twenty years of being a PHA mason I have read several papers that it was dissolved and abandoned like the brother stayed before but I also believed the 200 year old story about the formation of African lodge#1 but now that I am reading LANDMARKS OF OUR FATHERS which is backed up with documents it's hard to take anyone's word SMIB

    PHO developed out of the defunct NGL. Also not all of their "Lodges" share or have history with PHA.

    It's not a game. The shutdown of the NGL was real. There is also a court case that proves the NGL went dormant for 12 years, whereas they themselves could not prove to the court a continuous existence.

    Well, I understand your point, but you won't see the charter in my Utah lodge. It's sealed up in a tube.

    It is very common to have a photocopy in a frame on the wall. I look for those.

    In order for our lodges to open for any type of business our charter has to be displayed. No Charter displayed, No lodge meeting/communications.

    Same in mine.
    Interesting sidebar; our lodge meets in one of two lodges in the area, not possessing a building of our own. This means there are always two Charters on display. At the last Stated I was a little surprised when I noticed a third Charter hanging on the wall... seems one of the groups that rent the space forgot something.

    This, it has to be displayed in the lodge room. No exceptions.

    Bro. JC , it's my understanding that co-masonry is basically coed right?

    Exactly!! What you permit, you promote.

    The temple board (building association) makes the decisions on who rents. They also have a local Wiccan group as renters.
    As I said, my lodge also rents the space, so we have no say in it.
