A Brief Explanation of regular Freemasonry, Religion, Politics, etc..

Freemasons are often asked this question? “what is the connection between Freemasonry and politics, religion, business, etc.”
The answer is universal among Freemasons – THERE IS NO CONNECTION AT ALL – Anyone found trying to gain financially will be removed from the fraternity.
Freemasonry is a worldwide fraternity of not just men, but of women too. It’s sole purpose is to “make good people better.” All conversations regarding politics, religion or business within the lodge are completely banned.
Freemasonry is not a religion, but accepts members from all religions that believe in a supreme being, there is no discrimination, but likewise no discussion.
Freemasonry has no connection with any business, although members come from all walks of life, so some are bound to be business men and women.
Freemasonry has no connection with politics, although there are bound to be politicians amongst its membership.
Pseudo Freemasonry exists in many parts of the world. To be considered a Freemason you must be initiated into a regular Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons. For that Lodge to be legitimate it must have been granted a warrant from a Regular Grand Lodge.
Any Lodge or band of people professing to be Freemasons but have been initiated into an unwarranted, regular lodge are false Freemasons and their Lodge with no warrant from a regular Grand Lodge would be deemed as clandestine. Regular Freemasons will have no connection with such a group.
Regular Grand Lodges exist all over the world. For a Lodge to be regular it must be in Amity with the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE), Grand Lodge of Scotland or the Grand Lodge of Ireland.
French Freemasonry (under the Grand Orient de France or the Grand Loge de France) exists under similar regulations, but it is no longer in amity with UGLE. The Grande Loge National Francais is the only regular French Lodge that is currently in amity with UGLE.
