Whats with all these freemasonry and mormon religion in the US?

Okay, to begin with, Freemasonry is not a religion. While membership in the fraternity does require one to hold belief and faith in the fact that there exists a Supreme Being who created the heavens and earth, the fraternity does not dictate by what religion, belief system or mode of worship this should be accomplished. Each individual, by the dictates of his own moral conscious, may worship and express faith in whichever way, under whichever religion he sees fit. Freemasonry, as a fraternity and institution holds no opinion as to the supremacy or “correctness” of any religion or belief system. Most Freemasons are Christians, but there are many Jewish, Muslim, and Hindu Masons as well. Freemasonry does not itself engage in religious practice or worship, again, because it is not a religion and has no religious opinions. It is a fraternity that has been around for hundreds of years. As far as the Mormons, I am not one.

As far as Freemasonry goes, it does NOT oppose religion. It certainly does not involve “satanic worship!” In fact, you cannot be a freemason and an athiest at the same time – you must believe in a “great architect” to qualify for membership in the masons. As for being a satanist, you would be shunned from the lodge, most likely. Freemasonry is NOT some kind of worship. The best way to find out what they do, is to ask one and petition for membership. Masonry is about learning important life-lessons of charity, responsibilty, service, etc. through allegories and symbolism. In the masonic lodge, you will find the bible, the koran, and the tanakh/torah/talmud. The whole idea is that men of different socioeconomic and religious backgrounds can meet “on the level,” for fraternization that would be uncommon or discouraged in other places, like say, a church! Specific discussion of any one deity is discouraged!

Masons aren’t a particular religion. They date back quite a while ago, and believe they have many practices similar to Solomon’s Temple. Mormons believe Jesus is “The Son of God”. They believe that he’s our savior and redeemer. They may not be Baptist Christians, or Catholic Christians, but they’re Christians. They also don’t worship Satan. Some say that there may be a few similarities between the Mormon temples and Mason temples. However, correlation doesn’t necessarily prove causation. There are parallels between the Babylonian Gilgamesh’s Flood and Noah’s Ark, and parallels between Jesus Christ and the Greek god Dionysus & Egyptian Horus. However, many Christians believe that because there were ancient prophets talking about Jesus Christ, some of those parallels made it into other religions a thousand years before Jesus came into being.

As far as I know there is not any religion that actively promotes or incorperates freemasonry symbols or rituals. I don’t know anything about Mormons, but I have heard that the founder was a Freemason and that they use some symbols of freemasonry, but thats really just speculation.

Freemasonry is not a religion and never has been, it is a following to be better people and remember that God made everything around us.
