Freemasonry, or Masonry as most people call it today, can trace its written history back to the 16th century and counts notable people ranging from George Washington to John Elway, W.E.B Dubois to Benito Juarez, Brad Paisley to Ben Franklin, Thurgood Marshall to Voltaire, your High School Science teacher to the GI in Iraq amongst its members. A more diverse group of men is hard to find.
The Fraternity brings together men from all walks of life and is focused on the inner man as opposed to station, religion, or race. As a strict rule and tradition Masons don’t talk about politics or religion in the lodge room, a tradition that originated in the beginnings of the Fraternity as there are no two topics more divisive.
