Breaking News: April 3, 2016: Protesters Continue to Picket Scottish Rite HQ
Objecting to the failure of Ron Seale to take ANY steps to address discrimination in the Masons and follow our recommendations, protesters continue to show up regularly at the Scottish Rite Headquarters in DC. They will remain there until Seale comes to his senses and stops awarding degrees to bigots.
Breaking News (March 17, 2016): Protesters Demand Scottish Rite Cease Awarding Degrees to Discriminatory Lodges
Demonstrators were on scene at the Scottish Rite Supreme Council in Washington, D.C to demand that "Sovereign Grand Commander" Ronald Seale immediately cease awarding degrees to members of the discriminatory lodges in Georgia, Tennessee and elsewhere who openly ban gay and African-American members. By awarding degrees to these members, they are essentially discriminating against the black and the gay communities because they are UNABLE TO JOIN the masons in the first place and obtain the first three degrees needed to receive Scottish Rite degrees. Though this may sound like a complicated issue, at the core of it is the fact that since African-Americans and gays are unable to join these lodges, that any dealings with them to legitimize them are supporting the discrimination. If Mr. Seale does not wish to do this, he could decide to award the first three degrees to African-Americans and gays in the discriminatory jurisdictions. If he does not take either step, he is part of the bigotry. The protests will continue until this matter is resolved--this issues is far too important for the typical Masonic inaction and pontificating. Watch a video here of the protest
And tell Ronald Seale to stop the gay bashing in his fraternity---one would think that would be within the power of a man with such an illustrious title.
Breaking News (March 8, 2016): Our campaign has earned a huge 'win' today with a historic decision by California Grand Master Perry withdrawing recognition from the discriminatory Georgia and Tennessee Grand Lodges. We want to congratulate Grand Master Perry for his forward thinking decision. We will be moving our campaign onto other states to urge them to follow Perry's wise course of action. Thank you, David Perry! Below is the text of his decision:
To all Grand Lodges in amity with the Grand Lodge of California:
You might have read of recent events in Georgia and Tennessee where the Grand Lodges
there have adopted new rules or enforced existing rules to discipline Masons because of their
The Grand Lodge of Georgia ratified Grand Master McDonald’s Edict No. 2015-4 at the last
Annual Communication of their Grand Lodge, thereby adding the following language to their
Grand Lodge law: homosexual activity with anyone subjects the offender to discipline.
The Grand Lodge of Tennessee recently suspended two brothers from Masonry for violating
a provision of the Tennessee Masonic Code when they posted photographs of their wedding to
each other on Facebook. The Tennessee Masonic Code states that it is a Masonic offense to
promote or engage in homosexual activity.
In each case, I construe these actions as a sectarian stand which is inconsistent with and does
not support the General Regulations of Freemasonry. I have therefore suspended
recognition of The Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Georgia and the
Grand Lodge of Tennessee F. & A. M. until the next Annual Communication of our Grand
I am happy to share with you further details about my decision, if you so desire.
Sincerely and fraternally,
M. DAVID PERRY
Breaking News (March 5, 2016): Protesters Picket Major Masonic Conference; Demand Immediate End to Anti-Gay Discrimination
Protesters again were on scene at UCLA to demand that the Grand Lodge of California immediately withdraw recognition from any discriminatory Masonic groups. We recognize 'Grand Master' Perry's statement condemning discrimination but as long as he continues to call these despicable bigots in Georgia his "brothers", as long as he consorts and attends events with them and as long as he associates in any way with them, he and his organization are complicit. Please take a look at protesters confronting Masons on their lack of compassion for the gay community and UCLA Professor Margaret Jacob for taking funds from them. And don't miss a shocking video of a UCLA Professor cursing out protesters for exposing the dubious connection.
Breaking News: Protesters Demonstrate Outside UCLA History Department; Demand Professor Margaret Jacob Return $100K From Masons
Protesters are demanding that controversial UCLA Professor Margaret Jacob immediately return $100,000 she received from the Masons in exchange for allowing them to sponsor an Academic Conference on masonry. Ms. Jacob must either return the funds or resign as taking money in exchange for sponsorship is not fitting with the principles of academic integrity--particularly when the funds come from a discriminatory organization such as the Masons who ban African-Americans and are conducting a purge of gay members. Click here to watch a short video of the protest.
If you're looking for an organization dedicated to far-fetched conspiracy theories about the Masons then you've come to the wrong place. We couldn't care less about outlandish ideas. Our concern is exposing the true and open bigotry going on within Mason chapters across the country and across the globe.
Did you know that gay members are officially banned from joining chapters in Georgia? That's from a recent resolution proposed by Grand Master Douglas McDonald. Across the south, African-Americans are banned from joining the Masons. It goes without saying that women are banned as well. Yet, major corporations such as UBS, Bank of America, Blackrock, Panasonic, and others maintain strong associations with the Masons and even SPONSOR Mason events. We are sending a strong message to all Masons, repudiate the Bigots. De-segregate the organization. And allow people from diverse backgrounds to join. We will protest and boycott corporations and other institutions that continue to legitimize these bigoted and backwards policies.
We have been traveling the country recently confronting Masons on why they continue to support discrimination. Check out some of our video highlights
In this clip, dozens of high-ranking Mason leaders refuse to comment on the discrimination going on. Pay attention to the odd excuses they give for why discrimination goes on in their order.
Or take a look at this clip where an angry Mason (in very odd attire) yells at an interviewer asking him about the discrimination.
If you're looking for a deeper perspective on the roots of Masonic discrimination, watch this mini-documentary on why the discrimination exists and who enables it.
The President of the World Conference of Masons, Tom Jackson, sat down to answer in detail more about the Mason bigotry allegations. While Mr. Jackson was well-spoken unlike many of his brethren, he still insisted on dodging the issue and insisting that we be "patient" and discrimination will resolve itself.
It would seem that many Masons are themselves concerned about this issue as evidenced by various forum discussions as this one
Here are some other interesting clips:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8syw9R9yqU (an old episode of "All in the Family" where the bigoted Archie Bunker and friends attempt to keep out minorities from their lodge)
1. The Masons must IMMEDIATELY accept LGBT members. Chapters that don't agree MUST be IMMEDIATELY expelled
2. The Masons must IMMEDIATELY accept African-American members. Chapters that don't agree MUST be IMMEDIATELY expelled.
3. The Masons must DISAVOW ANY ASSOCIATION with African dictators and other known mass-murdering criminals across the world--many of whom are proud members
4. Drop recognition of grand lodges that reject Jews -- those in Scandinavia, and Scottish Rite and "higher" degree bodies such as England that reject Jews
We are NOT making this stuff up. Check out our "Resources" section that includes direct examples and evidence of the bigotry including:
-Resolution from the Georgia Masons banning gays saying that "homosexuality is contradictory to moral character"
-IRS Filings from the Masons showing very little of their so called "charitable" funds going to help people in need.
Until our demands are met, we will protest at Masonic gatherings across the world. We will protest sponsors of the Masons. We will protest all who legitimize these backward ideas. The Masons MUST change and adapt.
