[quote:Anonymous Coward 34283596:MV8yMTM0MTk1XzM2MDg5MTMwX0I0RDIzQjky] [quote:IAMIAM:MV8yMTM0MTk1XzM2MDU2MzM1XzY3Q0ZDRjk0] Freemasonry bars women for different reasons than does those organizations. [b]The bar to women has always been because the Landmarks upon which it is built state that to be a candidate one must be a Man, free born, and well recommended.[/b] Now seeing as how the Bible is the Great Light in Masonry, it should be obvious to any reader of the Genesis account that God created Man, male and female created he them. Therefore women have just as much right to enter. And, there are Lodges which would agree and do allow women. It is up to the "Mainstream" to get up to times if they wish to be counted as an existing body in the near future. [/quote] NO ONE disputes that, but the original comment was about women not being able to join. I merely pointed out the "some" of the reasons. Seems you have a problem with "mainstream".......eh? I'm quite happy with "mainstream" as it is at present......and I am well aware that women have their own Lodges and should they wish to "bar" men.....then .that is their right, but a Fraternity is entitled to stay as it is, also.

When I was a Mason several years ago, I was an zealous defender of the Craft. My exploits online are well known, and through them I met Masons all over the world.
My biggest adversary were clandestine or rogue Masons.
These are those who set up lodges outside the Grand Lodge system.
Mostly these were done for nefarious purposes such as scamming the unknowing public. Masons raised under these lodges get nothing for their troubles because those lodges will never be recognized for the breach of protocol.
Anyway, a good running joke I made once upon a time, was that if I were to ever be suspended or expelled, rather than set up a clandestine lodge I would do my own thing.
I called this the "Lodge of the Under Water Basket Weavers".
Well my Brothers, did you think I was kidding?
