    The Massachusetts GL had a problem with the Widow's Sons. The edict is from December 12th, 2013. The key part of the edict follows:

    "By its own rules, the Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association permits no
    Chapter to be formed in a Masonic jurisdiction without the consent of its
    local Grand Lodge. The Widows Sons Massachusetts Grand Chapter
    never requested or received the permission of the Grand Lodge of Masons
    in Massachusetts to operate in this jurisdiction.
    Therefore, it is my edict that no member of the Grand Lodge of Masons in
    Massachusetts be a member of any Chapter of the Widows Sons Masonic
    Riders Association. Failure to comply with this edict shall subject the
    offending member to the disciplinary action of suspension or expulsion.
    No one has been suspended as a result of this edict."

    Before that part, though, there is also the following text:

    "Recent activities in connection with the
    Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association have underscored a divergence
    between the practices of their association and the principles and
    prerogatives of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Masons in
    Massachusetts"

    I have no idea exactly what this means, but it suggests to me that something else may have been going on that brought the MC to the GL's attention.
