Rough Ashlar No. 12
The real purpose and message of Freemasonry has nothing to do with the petty political divisions invented by various Grand Lodges and Grand Orients around the world to cement and maintain authority. That is not Freemasonry. There are fortunately, some people of vision who may lead the way to a more rational approach. I hope they have enough influence.
Nobody is Clandestine. Do the Methodists define the status of Presbyterians, Baptists, Catholics, or Buddhists? For all the talk of brotherhood in Freemasonry, it's greatest failing has been how much time and energy it wastes trying to define who is not entitled to be considered one.
For Freemasonry to be taken seriously again in the world, that has to change.
