    Even if it IS in the bylaws, it would be unenforceable. It would be contrary to Art. 383 of the GLoT Law and, as such, would be null, void, and of no effect. Any WM who attempted to enforce that bylaw would be subject to Masonic charges for violating Art. 383. Sorry, guys, but that's the bottom line.

    Bill - when the horse is dead, quit beating it - we got your position and your approach to mentoring - appears you like the hammer

    Sorry it took so long to find it, but here you go (if this works!):

    Art. 220. (260). By-Laws: Void if Conflicting with
    Constitution or Laws. All by-laws or regulations of a Subordinate
    Lodge contravening, or in conflict with, the Constitution or Laws
    of the Grand Lodge, shall be null and void and such is the case
    even though the Grand Lodge may have approved such by-laws or
    regulations.
