Masonic Associations Christianity and the LodgeWilliam J. WhalenThe Masonic lodge may avoid anticlerical activities in certain nations, may support commendable charitable undertakings, may disclaim its own religious orientation.

He knows he cannot participate in religious worship with non-Christians praying to T.G.A.O.T.U. and still observe Christ's command to ask the Father in His name.
