What is Freemasonry?

It is a system of morality, a way to make good men better, to help each individual develop to their fullest potential, it is a strong support for democracy and freedom, and it is an organization that improves men’s characters. It traces its origins to the Stone Mason Guilds of the 1500s. During the 1600 and 1700s, also called the Enlightenment, gentlemen joined the craft guild and transformed it into a fraternity. These “non-operative masons” adopted the tools and legends of stone masonry to teach moral, intellectual and spiritual lessons. Just as masons improved stone to build cathedrals, castles and other great buildings, Freemasons use symbols and allegories to build better men that create great societies. Through the influence of good men such as Washington, Freemasonry and its ideals continue to thrive around the world.

As the saying goes, 2B1-Ask 1
