If I may sum up the rebuttals specifically:Daughters of ISIS not of the Nile. No Masons I know of wear fezzes in lodge. That is a Shriner thing. I mean fezzes with the Square and Compass. Like I said, irregular Masonry. That was all I was talking about. I've been around this all my life. Quite exposed to it in my younger life. I knew a lot of men and women that were of regular regime.
no, Daughters of Isis are not part of an irregular group. They are a female counterpart of PHA (Egyptian) Shrine, just as Nile is of Shrine Internatiomal.
No, PHA OES and Daughters of Isis are not the same.
I agree, regular lodges do not wear a fez (absent the master, perhaps). Since Daughters of Isis aren't Masons, they don't participate in lodge, though they will wear the fez to Events, just like LOS and DON do.
