    when we spoke he was more interested in the networking and benefits. Also the ethics and moral it taught him. Strange how he become a “32 degree” mason in his own lodge.

    Y'know, I can't really fault men who join clandestine Lodges. I joined the Fraternity because of men I knew & respected who were/are Masons. I knew nothing about "mainstream" or Prince Hall Lodges. Had my Masonic friends belonged to clandestine Lodges, I would have, unknowingly, joined them, like many Brethren I have since met- some of them now on these forums. I place the blame on the founders of those spurious GLs, especially those who did so for financial reasons.

    But the bottom line is not the visit or go to their meetings?

    Correct, if you sit in an irregular lodge as a regular Mason it is grounds for your dismissal from your lodge.

    I find this VERY often to be the cause.
