Rough Ashlar No. 11

This should be simple to comprehend, but apparently is not for many masons and obediences.

If a lodge is striving to live up to the principles of Freemasonry and follow the rituals that they have; if their officers and members behave in a masonic manner among themselves and in the world beyond the lodge; then they are legitimate Freemasons.

No amount of patents, charters, documents, webpages, or claims change this fact. Nor does any lack of patents, charters, documents, webpages or claims, either.

What I am saying is that there are lodges and obediences that don't meet some other people's expectations of documentation who are in spite of those objections, true masons. There are also masons, lodges, and obediences with all the credentials one could imagine who don't meet the true qualifications of what is masonic.

Look in your own heart and decide - honestly.
