Freemasons at Westminster claim they are not a secret society says Grand Lodge

Freemasons at Westminster claim they are not a secret society says Grand Lodge Over 300 years of developing good character, supporting local communities and regular support for charity - both local and international.

What is the connection

 

The Guardian reports is has learned that Two Freemasons’ lodges set up for members of parliament and political journalists are continuing to operate secretly at Westminster.

 

But Dr Staples said that, although the lodges existed, none of their members were MPs or political journalists.

 

  • There are about 200,000 male Freemasons and 4,700 female Freemasons in the UK
  •  

  • Freemasons meet in a temple, which they call a "lodge", as it is understood that is where ancient stonemasons met when working on a church or cathedral
  •  

  • The "third degree" is the final stage before becoming a fully fledged Mason. The ceremony involves close questioning, which is where the expression "giving someone the third degree" originates
  •  

  • Famous Freemasons have included Sir Winston Churchill, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling, Robert Burns, Oscar Wilde and Peter Sellers
  •  

  • The United Grand Lodge of England is restricted to men, although separate women-only lodges also exist.

So the symbol for Fire and the Symbol for Water when overlaped present the six pointed star.

 

The shape is that of a hexagram, the compound of two equilateral triangles.

 

The Star of David (✡) symbol became representative of the worldwide Zionist community, known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David, Biblical Hebrew, is a generally recognized symbol of modern Jewish identity and Judaism.

 

The Hebrew Bible commands that "The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out" (Leviticus 6:13, KJV), regarding the altar of Burnt Offering in the Tabernacle, and later the altars in Solomon's Temple and the Second Temple (the latter sacked by Rome in 70 AD). Many churches (especially Catholic and Lutheran), along with Jewish synagogues, feature an eternal flame on or hung above their altars (churches) or Torah arks (synagogues). 

 

On the left of the photo it can be seen the Freemasons Mason symbol with the 6 pointed star at the centre. (original photo) and the all seeing eye pyramid can be seen worn by another.

 

The degrees of freemasonry retain the three grades of medieval craft.

 

The first Grand Lodge, the Grand Lodge of London and Westminster (later called the Grand Lodge of England (GLE)), was founded on 24 June 1717, when four existing London Lodges met for a joint dinner.

Alluding to the membership of a lodge of operative masons, they relate a mythologised history of the craft, the duties of its grades, and the manner in which oaths of fidelity are to be taken on joining.

 

Certain Christian denominations have had high-profile negative attitudes to Masonry, banning or discouraging their members from being Freemasons.
