General Info

Heights Lion Heart Lodge 633 Free and Accepted Masons, Chartered 1916 by Grand Lodge of Ohio MyMasonicLodge.com, About- [ You are here ] Home Grand Lodge of Ohio Contact About Masonry and our Lodge Freemasonry is an international fraternity for men (although there are also some lodges for women). Membership is open to any male at least 21 years old who believes in a Supreme Divine Being. Freemasonry is not a religion, but its beliefs are heavily influenced by 18th and 19th century Deism and Universalism. Masons must only swear a belief in a Divine Being, but is open to any religion otherwise. No atheist can be a Mason. Many confuse this non-discriminatory policy of welcoming all religious adherents as members to be endorsing the validity of all religions. Actually, religion, as well as politics, are forbidden topics in any lodge. How one worships is one's own private business. All Masonry demands is that you do have religious beliefs to rest your moral development on. Masonic ritual revolves around the building of Solomon's Temple, and the death of the architect Hiram Abiff. Common ancient tools used in building, such as the trowel, plumb, level, compass, square, etc., are used in ritual. They all have symbolic meanings, relating to developing morality promoting the advancement of the members to the understanding of Universal Light. The ceremonies and objects are all symbolic allegories towards this purpose. In spite of popular belief, Masonry is not a secret society, but a public society that has some secrets, such as initiatory ceremonies, passwords, and handshakes. There is no Masonic Conspiracy to control the United States, or the World. In reality, it's just a group of men, banding together to study and celebrate common moral beliefs and individual improvement. - Exerpted from
