Is Masonry a Religion? PDF Print
Wednesday, 30 August 2006
Though religious in character, Masonry is not a religion, nor a substitute for one. It fosters a belief in a Supreme Being - this being a prerequisite for membership. Freemasonry accepts good men who are found to be worthy, regardless of their religious convictions, and strives to make better men of them by emphasizing a firm belief in the Fatherhood of God, the Brotherhood of Man, and the Immortality of the Soul.

Freemasonry is secret only in the manner by which one member recognizes another, and its method of symbolic instruction. It is not a secret society, but a society of secrets. Freemasonry makes no attempt to conceal its existence, its principles, its purpose, or its aim.

Gatherings of its members are frequently public with announcements published in the press. Its Constitutions are printed for any to see, and its rules and regulations are available for inspection.
