    Revealing the secrets, criminal activity, trying to start a lodge without proper warrant, hostility to other brothers, are some ways to get yourself kicked out

    Lying on your application.Messing with another Mason's wife or daughter will get you expelled and maybe worse.Moral Turpetude is a BIG NO NO.

    The "Laws of the Grand Lodge of Texas" is the place to look, specifically Articles 326, 503-507, and 510 cover the specific activities which would lead a brother to being expelled. Rather than the random nature of answers on an internet forum, I would strongly urge you to get a copy of this document -- it will be in your Lodge library, or you can ask the Lodge Secretary to borrow a copy -- and sit down and read this. At some near points in your Masonic journey, you will obligate yourself to "conform to and abide by" the various rules in that there Book, and it really helps if you know just what those rules are that you just swore yourself to ;-)

    A heads-up, Brethren- Mr. Scott is not a Mason, according to his profile. Please govern yourselves accordingly.

    He lists a home lodge and it's Grand Lodge, maybe he is an EA or FC?

    We are a moral fraternity.... bottom line, if it's something you would be ashamed for your mother to see, hear, or know about you, it is best it won't fly here.

    Hay y'all Justin just want to know what to expect. I had the same questions like how do you get in and how do you get kicked out. I would not want to spend time getting in if there is something that will get me kicked out right after I get in.

    If you are not a mason then I'm sure you know there are things that a mason can't say. But if you are planning on going through masonry I would suggest not to go in ahead and find out the details of the degrees you are going to go through. If you find out, I think it will ruin the experience. My advise is to wait until you've been initiated, then start to dig. Just a piece of advise.

    I myself am a control freek and want to knoe all the pos. and neg. of everything that maybe why I did not become a mason till later in life. I think someone just needed to point him to the bylaws. It is not a bad thing to look at what causes expulsion. It is just caritor on his part to ask for the knowledge of thngs like that. He did not ask about anything but expulsion.
