Thanks, but I never relinquish my God given right to question anything and everything, even as a Mason.

I understand that none of this ramble has anything to do with the intended function of this forum so for that reason I will let it go.

I just thought it was interesting conversation that I am qualified to speak on; being a Mason and a biker.

Thank you, I’m glad I’m not the only one concerned by the suggestion that blind obedience is expected of us. I wouldn’t be a Mason if I thought that was true.

The edict in question does not require blind obedience. It requires men to make a choice between being a Massachusetts Mason or being a member of the Widow’s Sons. We are all free to make that choice. You are more than welcome to ask the Grand Master anything you like, he is your brother after all.
