Is Freemasonry a Religion? If so then what kind is it?

The members of Freemasonry have to this day contested the fact that Freemasonry could not possibly be a religion. So to get an idea of what a religion is. According to Wikipedia a “religion may be defined as the presence of a belief in the sacred or the holy” but I will have to go further and say that symbols ad ritual are required as well though I may be alone in this belief. Now that we know what defines a religion, we can begin to classify our subject.

Lets examine a Temples of Freemasonry, inside you will find an altar with the Bible, Koran, Vedis or even the Pentateauch. On the book of religious preforance will be placed a square and compas, these symbolize the order helping to build the initiats way to heaven. The East, West and South walls of the lodge have three thrones on each. The thrones are for the heirarchy who have autonimous control over their lodge. Above the “worshipful master” of the East sits the letter “G” with the square and compas encircling the letter that one would denote to symbolize “God” but it is said to refer to geometry as well.

Now for anyone to become a Mason you would have to be selected be another mason for membership because you are of the right calliber to rise above the “profane.” Once this has occurred you are introduced to the ritual and secrets that suround this society. There is too much to go into here so I will continue to post links to information but I must ask that you look for yourself.

I have briefly gone over the society that admitadly formed the United States of “America” eventhough the largest center for Freemasonry is at Temple “Bar” in London. Ironically the bar exam is what all lawyers are required to pass before ataining the ability to “practice” law.

We have covered the fact that Freemasonry does indeed qualify as a religion as we have defined it. The society has an altar, where ritualistic cerimonies are carried out with many religious books of holy scripture on it. Symbols abound in any lodge which are secret in their meaning even to most initiats because of deep esoteric and occult ties to ancient history. The last piece of the puzzle is the belief in something sacred or holy. The Masons are taught that through Masonry’s teachings of how to be a better man you will atain entrance to heaven and save his soul.

Now I do appologize if I offended anyone but the truth hurts. Everything disclosed shows Freemasonry is a religion, so what kind is it? This is where your belief system should kick in and give you that answer. In my opinion Freemasonry is not Christian, Catholic, Hindu or any other religion that has been sacraficed on their altar. If this clandestend group were viewed as traitors and cultist and were persicuted when we still had a governvent that was “for the people.” Then you must ask yourself what has changed and what still needs to be corrected so we can save this great country and planet?

Masonry is NOT a Religion. By twisting words and meanings you make innocent people think a good organization is bad. Yes, we have an Altar, so what? We have a Chaplain, so what? So does the US Senate. Does that make them a Religion? Signs and Rituals? The Boy Scouts of America have Rituals. Are they a Religion? Is it a sin to use signs? Christians use a Cross as a sign. Is that a sin? I think not. This may come at a big shock, but wouldn't you sat that Communion is a Ritual? I see nothing wrong with it.

How can you whoop up a Holy war against something you know nothing about? Do you think ex-Masons will tell you the truth? As far as the as a Book of Holy Writing on the Altar, that Book is the most commonly used Book in the area. In the US it's usually the King James Version of the Holy Bible. Yes, sometimes other Books of Holy Writings are there also. We are a world wide group. What else would you expect?

Try practicing what YOUR own Bible tells you, Seek and ye shall find. Try seeking the truth with an open mind. Since this has to be approved, I doubt it will ever be published.

I'm glad that you enjoyed my post Rick. I understand that you have only seen a fraction of masonry because you must have eyes to see and ears to hear. I believe what you meant by "Chaplin" is worshipful master. As far as the "Senate," I believe they follow Robert's Rules of Order at minimum. Now we come to the "Boy Scouts," I think they are a misguided organization. In a company such as this, ALL should be allowed entry and I'm not talking about the backdoor. Having this "company" run by religious organizations means that is has no business in public schools. Now to quote Bill Hicks "When Jesus comes back, do you think he'll want to see a f*@#ing cross" but I guess I was dreaming when I read that "thou shalt not worship graven images or false idols!" now as for the Eucharist, is eating the body and blood of someone cannibalism?

Holy war denotes a war between two or more religions. I am not religious but I know GOD. If a Christian preacher recounts his experience in masonry, would you listen? Now as for your "Holy Writings," they were written by men to control men so how free are you mason. From your comment I can gather that you are still in the blue lodge which is good, above the third degree you get more "light" from the light bringer who goes by the name Lucifer. If you doubtful this just read lack of "morals and dogma" which was written by the creator of the KKK, Albert Pike.

Now as far as the holy books, as I see it, they hold kernels of truth as well as piles of sh^t. As for the mind it's like a book, it's no good if it's not open. maybe you should take off your blinders and read some of the books in the library and get back to me. I doubt you will but I love a good discussion.

Well, you are wrong, we have a Master of the Lodge (AKA Worshipful Master) sitting just to his left is the Chaplain of the Lodge.

I've been around this organization for 35 years. I've seen what I need to see. That's more that I can say for you.

Thank you, but I have nothing to discuss with you. You have the freedom to follow your own beliefs as you see fit. Leave mine alone.
