Rough Ashlar No. 21: Regular Vs. Extraordinary

This post is not intended to criticize any group that considers themselves to be "regular," as all groups do. Rather, it serves as a reminder that if you are judging another group of Masons as being less "authentically" Masonic than you are, you are missing the entire point of being a Mason. You cannot be belittling another and doing the work at the same time. Those two actions are mutually exclusive.

You can only be concerned with improving yourself. If you expend energy in attacking others, you are not a Mason. Period.

There is no way in which such behavior can be squared with the fundamental principles upon which Freemasonry is based. Think about it. If you are committed to polishing the Rough Ashlar, then you know what I am saying is true.
