Real Freemasonry - Real Masonic Reform

A few months back Bro. Fred Milliken wrote "Is Mainstream Freemasonry Primed for Another Morgan Affair?" It openly discusses the present fear-based Masonic system run by the state Grand Lodges, and how that it is in opposition to the much venerated Masonic principle of tolerance. One might say the present mainstream system is the opposite of Freemasonry.

Are you tried of the corruption in American Freemasonry? Do you believe that Freemasonry should be based on friendship instead of fear? Do you value personal liberties and freedom of speech? If so, real and meaningful Masonic reform and renewal has begun.

Bro. Rich Graeter's essay Reform Freemasonry is the cornerstone of a growing movement among Freemasons across the United States. It offers the hope of a bright future where Masons will no longer need to hide behind aliases on the Internet. You will be free to openly discuss the things that are important to you. No longer will you be threatened with your membership by District Deputies or told what to do by the fascist-like groups of Masonic fanatics that report your activities to their superiors.  You will finally have the opportunity to freely seek out the Light without fear of reprisal. It's the promise of real Freemasonry put into action.

The Grand Orient USA has adopted all the principles and ideas laid out in Bro. Graeter's essay, and he has established an Advisory Board to oversee the implementation of the new Masonic system. Teams of Masons from across the country are being formed to build-out the different parts of the new organization. Everyone from technology professionals to academics are being brought on board to help solve the problems faced by our fraternity today.

This is the first time since the Baltimore Convention of 1843 that American Masons have become determined to reform the Craft and ensure its survival.

In the coming days and weeks I will be exposing the lies and corruption of the present system, and discussing how the reform movement is making the changes necessary for the future of Freemasonry in America.
