Membership in the Shrine is limited to the Brothers of Freemasonry
What is Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is perhaps the oldest fraternity still active today, publicly organized in 1717 with the formation of the Grand Lodge of England and based upon traditions at least as old as the late 14th century.
It is dedicated to the cause of “Making Good Men Better“. The better brothers, husbands, fathers, and citizens that society needs today. It teaches steadfast virtues like truth, honor, integrity, charity, perseverance, service, equality, liberty, and justice. Men of good character from all races, who can express a belief in a Deity, are welcomed through its doors.
Is Freemasonry a Religion
Masonry is definitely not a religion, and is one of the few forums where men of every religion can come together. And although Lodges open and close with a prayer, and Masonry teaches morality, it is neither a church nor a religious body, and a member’s religious beliefs are his own affair. Masonry is open to all men who believe in a Supreme Being; because of the necessity to take oaths, no atheist can become a Mason.
