Freemasonry is the world’s oldest and largest Fraternity with history and tradition dating to antiquity. Freemasonry is a friend of all religions that are based on the belief in a Supreme Being.
Who Freemasons Are
Thirteen signers of the Constitution and fourteen Presidents of the United States were Freemasons, including George Washington.
There are more than three million Freemasons around the world. The Fraternity consists of men from virtually every occupation, profession and political ideology. However, they all meet as equals and as friends.
At a Lodge meeting, you will not hear any political or religious debates.
Only those believed to be of the finest character are considered for membership. Every applicant must express his belief in the existence of a Supreme Being. Atheists cannot be members of the Fraternity.
A man seeking membership must either ask friend who is a Mason to recommend him or he may visit a Lodge to ask about membership. He must sign a petition stating his age, occupation, place of residence, etc. Members of the Lodge will vote by ballot and to be accepted, the ballot must be unanimous.
