The Latin word religare means to tie. Religion is thus what ties up men together to God. In the lodge it's forbidden to speak about religions in terms of doctrine; it is allowed to speak about metaphysics, i. e. God without adjectives!
Personally, I regard and view Freemasonry as having a deep spiritual foundation. Though I also know many who do not share this view, others do in fact likewise share this view, each of us in our own individual and specific ways.
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."
omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

The Ancient: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
