An avid Masonic scholar, he is the author of “The Freemasons Returned to Bulgaria” (1998) and “The Third Millennium of Freemasonry” (2000), “The Lessons of Freemasonry (2005). His last book, a fiction - “33 The Menace Dan Brown” appeared on the book stands in December. One of the founders of the Masonic magazine Svetlina (Light) and the web site Nedkov is a member of the International Academy of the Illuminati in Rome

Sure, Masons can be of any religion, so long as they recognize the supremacy of God, so far as I know. I don't have a list of their entrance requirements. I do know that new members are proposed and voted upon, and it only requires one black ball to disqualify.

Their rituals are ancient and honorable. But they're a lodge, not a church. They've never made any prentence of being one. In fact, in those days, lodges were pretty close to our present-day unions. In the Middle Ages you had your guilds, which had much the same functions. The Masons started out as a guild of working masons.

The masons believe in God, but they don't believe in any one religion. They believe in God, the super-power who created the universe. The same way I believe in God, but not in the man-made religious fiction about God. Very intelligent and sensible approach to God, if I may say so myself.

"The masons is not a religious order,"

To the extent that they worship God, they are. This is what the "G" in the middle of their symbol stands for. Atheists and agnostics are not welcome with the Masons.

There is a difference between the mormons and the masons. The masons is not a religious order, it is a boy's club, like the boy scouts. They are a very old club whose first members were the mason builders who built the Gothic cathedrals in Europe. George Washington, as well as many other American presidents, were masons. The Frenchman who planned the city of Washington DC was a mason. Masons do have their funny, silly rituals, but they are not a religion as such. In fact, you can be any religion and still join the masons.

Ah, just another cult like the mormons! Weak minds can always find a good home in these cults.

Opinions are like arseholes, everyone has got one. Doesn't mean anyone is interested. I like Dan Brown, he writes page-turners.

Bravo Maria, good article not like that rubbish before. Bogumilism as well was an organized resistance against the perverted institutions of Rome. Just see what these animals are capable of Disgusting simply.
