It’s time to get on board brothers. Your Grand Lodge, the good folks at the California Freemason, and every Masonic symposium speaker of the past 10 years agree: let the women join the Lodge! Question for MW Stu: what’s happening on your publication committee? There is no need to one-up anyone; the UGLE already admits “transwomen.”
I called it by the way…5 years ago. Here is the post.
Oh, it won’t be this year. Even dedicating an entire issue of California FemmeMason to the subject of women in the Lodge, while a shot across the bow, is not even close to proposing such a radical change.
But I can picture it. Probably around 2022, Annual Communication: proponents of the resolution will file up to the podium. Cooper will speak on how history shows women have always been in the Lodge, and there is a (possibly apocryphal) story that proves it! Charvonia will appeal to inclusiveness and diversity, while reminding us that America was never a British, Christian nation. So why would our Lodges be so? And why can’t we convene on your sabbath, bigot? The then-Junior PGM Art Weiss will read his inspired words of May, 2019.
And then you will vote for it. It won’t pass outright, of course. But it will carry over. And maybe with a year in between, we can quietly build the support necessary to kill the damn thing. But it will be back.
I hate to be so cynical, but looking at recent history, can there really be any doubt as to the motive here? If you think I am wrong, please show me where.
