Freemasonry? What Is It? … It’s A Well Founded Fraternity!!!

While the multitude of volumes published on Freemasonry all serve a purpose, the bulk of what has been written over the last few hundred years has been extraneous glorification at best… and esoteric hogwash at worst. It… Freemasonry, is really very simple! It is a Fraternal Order, based on Tenets and Underpinnings which Endeavor to make Freemasons BETTER Men.

That’s it, in the proverbial nutshell. Continue reading

Las Vegas Shootings, Conspiracy Theories & Freemasonry… The Usual Rubbish

First of all, our condolences and prayers go out to the victims, families of victims, and our world at large in the wake of such a terrible tragedy. With that said, the usual suspects have turned up blaming not only a proliferation of guns in this country, but also of the “Illuminati” and Freemasonry symbolism and structure. Our response to the latter- Rubbish!

Even still, we learn from the following article that “the Illuminati – who for a super-secret cabal are hopeless at hiding themselves – were in evidence: the shooting took place near the Luxor casino with its pyramid, a symbol of Freemasonry.“… As if that’s not enough… “Paddock shot from the 32nd floor and there are 33 levels in the Scottish rite of Freemasonry. Need I say more?” Continue reading

L.A. Masonic Temple: Renovating The Past… Into The Future

“The hottest ticket in Los Angeles at the moment isn’t for a new restaurant, a pop concert or a sports showdown – it’s for the re-opening of a Masonic Temple on Wilshire Boulevard, now the home of the Marciano Art Foundation.”

The Blank Space In The Sentence

As members of the Free Masonic Fraternity, one of our constant worries seems to pivot around the notion of membership drives, membership retention… membership- whatever’s ! I have, and a great many others, written and spoken at length about the need to; more or less, let membership come as it may, and that to try to too hard… well, by trying to hard we might not be attracting the “right” Candidates anyhow. But, that doesn’t mean that we stop trying. In the words of financial acquaintance of mine- you don’t try or even work harder, you only try to work wiser. Continue reading

Finally, Some “Real” History for the 300 Year Birthday Party!

Throughout the past several months, Freemasons the world over have been gearing up for the all-important Tercentenary Celebration of the founding of the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE). Somewhere in the middle of all of this, I began to feel as though we were celebrating ONLY the Institution, and not the many good men who have acted as the living stones that make up our Fraternity. Today, an article crossed the news feed that offered a bit of perspective into the lives of the Freemasons of yesteryear.  Continue reading
