Los Angeles Freemasonry
I have started a new blog, one that specifically relates to the Liberal, non-dogmatic Freemasonry available in Los Angeles. It is deplorable that European Freemasonry has such a limited presence in the United States.
With over 300 million citizens in this country, there are only several hundred members of our jurisdictions here. This is unacceptable.
While we, as Masons, are not to openly solicit members, we can certainly make our presence known.
It is inconceivable that out of a nation with over 300 million people Adogmatic Freemasonry only has a few hundred members.
This must change. And the only way to do this is to make Americans aware of our existence. There are around one and a half million Anglo-American masons in the United States.
Do we really believe in the Jurisdictions that we belong to? If we are willing to sacrifice our time and money to belong to a Liberal jurisdiction do we not think that it has something to offer?
If every American knew of the existence of our obediences, then we could say, "they prefer not to be Freemasons, or they they want to join the Anglo-American Grand Lodges and wear funny hats, and dress up as medieval knights.
It is time that people became aware of our existence. That is why I am starting the Los Angeles Freemasonry blog. It is not the solution to the problem, but at least it is a start.
I will be writing about the Liberal lodges in Los Angeles, and providing their contact information.
Things need to change. If one tenth of one percent of the nation were involved with European Freemasonry we would have 300,000 brothers and sisters working to make a difference in our society.
It is imperative that we, as Freemasons of the European, Liberal, tradition, make the public aware that we exist. Otherwise, why do we bother to meet at all?
I have linked the blog on this site. San Diego Freemason blog will continue, of course.
