Good answer Matt T. Masonry, from time immemorial, has been handed down unwritten man to man. It is one of the ancient Tennant's and a virtual lodge cannot claim this therefore they miss the mark of Freemasonry because there is no brotherly love and trust being built by close association. Why settle for a cheap knockoff when you can get the real thing.

The best thing to do if you're interested in Freemasonry: visit your state's grand lodge website, for example, grandlodgeoftexas.org. They will help find a lodge that is close to you. Go visit the lodge and ask for a petition after you get to know some of the brethren. They will answer all your questions about Freemasonry.

Virtual Lodges are what we would call "Clandestine". No regular mason would then be able to discuss masonry on the square with you if you were a clandestine mason.

Furthermore, just be careful of stuff on the Internet. The virtual lodges may try to tell you that they are regular blue lodges, because in their opinions they are. If they are not recognized by the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of (pick a state), they're not real.

Good evening brethren. Traveling man looking for others to chew the fat with.

Greetings gentlemen!

I always interested in freemasonary, but I am not a mason. I read a lot about the masonic conspiracy theories too. Nowdays I started to do some research about the masonic things. It is a bit hard to separate the reliable information from the conspiracies. Anyway I think the brotherhood is a good thing, and I think it is realy great that I can make contact with the members of this ancient order. I have a lot of question about masonry.

First I would like to get some information about the so called "Virtual lodeges". I read that this lodges are mainly "fake lodges". To be honest I can't decide what is the truth. I'm curious, what is your opinion about the "virtual masonry", are there any reliable "virtual lodge", or other web based masonic community.

V v nice. Am only craft at the moment. Once I have gone through the chair I will go royal arch. Then....

Mark masonry seems interesting with the follow on royal ark mariner but knights Templar and red Cross of Constantine also seem nice. Any ideas?

That's very cool! In a real castle!

And for the love of God, it's Prince HALL. You are going to be very embarrassed when you Google what a Prince Albert is. LOL

Incidentally, in Blue Lodge news: our Grand Lodge voted this past weekend to blanketly-accept ALL regular Prince Albert Lodges in the US, and all future Prince Albert Lodges which are accepted as regular by their respective Grand Lodges! This was voted in by the overwhelming majority. Previous to this, several years ago, we had voted to accept all in-state Prince Albert Lodges and a few others here and there.

I was very saddened by the (vast majority of) brethren who voted against the recommendation to accept all current and future regular Prince Albert Lodges. I don't know their reasonings, as they hadn't submitted any discussion when given the opportunity, but I hope it was not for color of skin.

My mistake, the total number of us making the pilgrimage tomorrow night is 27. However... We were just informed that, since this is the 200th anniversary of the Grand Encampment, we will be automatically given the jewel created to commemorate such! This totally adds another layer of coolness!
