Freemasonry is NOT a religion. You may often see the word lodge and temple interchanged when referencing masonic lodges/temples. In this context, the word temple simply means a place where meetings are held. It carries no religious connotation. The Fraternity of Freemasons is no more a religion than the Boy Scouts, Kappa Sigma or the Rotary Club.If you reproduce any portion of this page, please link back to http://MasonicMyths.com and include the attribution - This page was written by the Past Masters of the The Ashlar Company.
