It all sounds a bit religious to me, is it?

Not really. Another of the golden rules of Freemasonry is to abstain from all topics of religious and political discussion – different people have different beliefs and all views are equally respected.

We are a secular society, not connected in any way with any religion, however we do ask that you believe in a superior being of some sort. That may be a God (or Gods) as part of a traditional religion or it may be your own personal (and private) belief.

Similarly, Freemasonry as a body, will never express a view on politics or state policy. The discussion of politics at Masonic meetings has always been prohibited.
