Can you be a freemason if you are… religious?

Yes. We do not discriminate on any irrelevant grounds.
Some Freemason orders may feel that their traditions warrant such discrimination, but ours feels that such discrimination is counter productive in our search for truth and self-improvement.

Freemasonry is not a religion, or a combination of religions, nor is it a substitute for religion. It expects its members to adhere to their own faith, and it does not permit discussion on religious matters at Masonic meetings and gatherings.

On the one hand, we do encourage our members to remain active on all the dimensions of their lives that enrich them, without trying to influence them in how they invest themselves. That includes their faith/worship of choice.
On the other hand, we promote mutual respect between sisters/brethren and with the rest of the world. So if your way to be religious is promoting intolerance and discrimination, then you would probably not find membership to our order rewarding.

In all cases, we do not promote any dogma over another, and topics and issues related to this area remain “at the doors” of our Order.
