Is Masonry a Religion?

Masonry is not a religion. But it is one of the few platforms where men of all faiths – Christians, including Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and men of every other faith – can come together because it is open to all men who believe in a Supreme Being; but religion is not discussed at Masonic meetings. Although Lodges open and close with a prayer and Masonry teaches morality, it is not a church or a religion. Masonry does not have a theology or dogma, it does not offer sacraments, and it does not offer the promise of salvation.
