Question: Is Freemasonry a religion?

morals and dogmaAdditional Argument: “I read something in a book that made me wonder about this. The book is called “Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry” written by Albert Pike. Albert Pike is a confirmed Freemason, in fact there are currently lodges erected in honor of him, such as the Albert Pike Lodge #237 in Hopkins, Minnesota.

On page 213 of “Morals and Dogma” Albert Pike states, “Every Masonic Lodge is a Temple of religion; and its teachings are instructions in religion.”

Here is a link to the document showing thie above quotation: http://crossbearer-brian.tripod.com/id284.htm

Since Albert Pike was clearly an authoritative figure within Freemasonry and his book is still used today, is it true that Freemasonry is a religion? It clearly appears to me that this claim is true, however, I would like to hear from some Masons regarding Albert Pike’s statements.

What will the Masons say this time? Will they deny that Pike was a Mason? Will they claim the book doesn’t exist? Will they say that his quote is misconstrued or out of context? I have heard all of these responses before and would appreciate a clear answer.” Read more »
