CONCERNING THE BEHAVIOR OF FREE MASONS

AS MEMBERS OF A LODGE

III.—Of Behavior in the Lodge While Open

While the Lodge is open for work, no brother shall hold any private conversation, nor talk of anything foreign or impertinent to the work in hand; he shall not interrupt the Master or Wardens, or any brother addressing himself to the chair; nor act with levity while the Lodge is engaged in what is serious and solemn; but every brother shall pay due reverence to the Master, the Wardens, and all his fellows. If he enters the Lodge after it is open, he must give the customary salutes to the proper officers. Every brother must appear in the Lodge wearing his apron conformably to the degree he has received, and must not leave his seat without permission from the Master or presiding officer.

Every brother found guilty of a fault, must abide by the decision of the Lodge; but if he feels himself aggrieved, he may appeal to the Grand Lodge. No private piques or quarrels, about nations, families, religion, or politics, must be brought within the doors of the Lodge, as being directly contrary to the rules of the Order already laid down. Free Masons, as such, are of the universal acknowledged religion, and of all nations. They are, therefore, bound to live upon the square, level, and plumb with each other; to follow the steps of their predecessors, in cultivating the peace and harmony of the Lodge, without distinction of religious sect or political party. Ahiman Rezon, 2012, p. 182.
