Q&A

 

 

Is Freemasonry a religion?

No, and it is not a substitute for religion. There are no Sacraments. Every member expresses a belief in a “Supreme Being” and there are members of all faiths working harmoniously in Freemasonry.

 

Is Freemasonry a Secret Society?

Certainly not, most provinces have interesting and informative web sites which are easily accessible by the public with sections like this one. Members are also encouraged to talk freely about the subject and helpful and accurate leaflets are readily available.

 

What is Freemasonry’s relationship with politics?

Freemasonry will never express a view on politics or any state’s policy. The discussion on politics at Masonic meetings has always been prohibited.

 

What are the Secrets of Freemasonry?

The so-called secrets of Freemasonry are the traditional ways of recognition. These signs in the past enabled a complete stranger to arrive at a building site and at once establish his status as a craftsman. As these signs were used by masons within the craft they were closely guarded.
