I came across this today, which I wanted to share in brief because it captures such an important and laudable aspect of Freemasonry.
This touches on the theme of religious tolerance which has been written about before on this blog. That the craft appeals to people from so many different walks of life, religious persuasions, and even time periods — tell us something about Freemasonry:
- It speaks to something universal
- It unites rather than divides; these men probably did not agree about everything, but they were brothers
- It acts as an attractor for men of a certain character
