    Who would know what you where doing unless they where a Mason themselves I have never seen someone give a DG accompanied by a sign or step in any order outside lodge its pointless try it in lodge and see if you don't get called out for it

    It was not meant as such. Rather, I was pointing out the irony of his public use of secret ritual language to prove that symbols are secret. A bit of irony, isn't it?

    I've not heard that GA is tuned into the issue nor did I assert that was the current issue. I quite agree that bigotry is the basis for the separation in that Grand Lodge

    I could be wrong but I think the real issue is y'all GLofState Mason's don't won't us to know what y'all are putting in that spaghetti and we don't won't to give up the secret recipe to the fish seasoning IJS

    After I say this I am done with this thread but I think pha and state should have a grand gathering ceremony basically fraternizing and coming up with new ideas etc every two years! We should share a charity event every two years and we should have a state party every two years to meet n greet! All these events should take place every two years! Should be mandatory but hey Its ok to have imagination i guess

    Maybe down where you are, but in Utah we have a Masonic Family Picnic with our PHA brethren every year. PHA meet in GLUT buildings.

    I was one of the installing potentates for a dual installation of our two Shrines this year. PHA COL attends the UT GL and speaks.
    I knew some of the PHA brothers before I was a Mason through the NAACP Board. Sadly, I think they've all passed now.

    Ur whole cut carve thing is about revealing secrets. A due guard is secret as it would allow a profane to be thought of as a mason. And therefore get masonic secrets. The s&c is not

    Yes, and it still doesn't allude to symbols, merely the items upon which one would write, etc.
    It refers to the words, the words we learn from our mentor's mouth. The symbols mean nothing, or at least something else, to the profane. I had squares hanging all over my woodshop, but unless you were a Brother, they were just tools I used in my job.
    Search the forum for "tattoos" and you will see this horse was beaten to death long ago.
