Freemasonry is a religion.


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.

I purchased a Past Master's ring for my husband and it was well worth the wait. It is a quality piece of work and gorgeous, he was surprised and pleased.

I guessed on the size and it is a perfect fit as well. Thank you, we will be returning customers.
