Masonry and Dogma

An Excerpt from the best selling book by Robert Lomas: The Lost Keys of Masonry

Freemasonry, by forbidding religious discussion at its meetings will not allow a Masonic theological doctrine to develop.’ I found this an important statement, as it goes well beyond simply forbidding the discussion of religion and politics, which had been in force since the adoption of Anderson’s Constitutions. It shows an awareness of Masonic dogma being inadvertently created if points of religious agreement were discussed in lodge. My personal experience of dogma, at the hands of various Sunday School teachers, had left me highly sensitive to the danger of it. Here I now found a strong statement of the religious tolerance at the heart of Masonic regulation.
