    I am a Master Mason in an American Grand Lodge. I would say I understand your frustration but regretfully it seems your lodge will be on the losing end. If you've read a Traditional Observance Lodge by Bro. Cliff Porter it may help you with your problems. He was ready to hang up his apron. I'm lucky enough to live in an area that I can drive to three different grand lodges territories and demitted my from the state GL whose jurisdiction I lived to to join another one. Feel free to PM me if you'd like.

Our craft is local. The grand (insert body/title) cannot save any of us. In the USA there has been an outpouring lately of young Freemasons writing papers and even books laying out exactly what we are looking for. If the above documents spark an interest please let me know and I can point you in the direction of more information like them.

    Welcome to the forum from the colonies.
  7. That depends on who is asking, who they are asking, when they are asking, and how they asked. It is something that has been enforced, ignored, agreed to, and agreed not to in various situations.

    Who was Adoniram?

    I am attaching two pictures from An Encyclopedia of Cryptic Masonry that I ordered from the General Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons International. This is from the American ritual point of view and your experiences may vary.

    As someone in the law enforcement profession I feel sympathy for my brothers that must put up with these lies.

    Hello Brethen

    Welcome to the site and the fraternity brother!
  14. It just seems odd to me. But it's probably because I grew up with OES being part of the Masonic family. To be clear I have no interest in the OES.
  15. Why the Order of Eastern Star? It doesn't claim to be a Masonic lodge, doesn't confer any of the three degrees, and allows women to join. The same could be said for Order of the Amaranth, White Shrine of Jerusalem, Rainbow Girls and Jobs Daughters.
