Glad to have found you. I knew I wasn't alone as a Master Mason and now an atheist. I still believe in the motto "Making good men better" How active is this group and how widespread is secular masonry?
I would love to join Grand Orient Freemasonry but here in Hawaii there is no G.O. Lodge. Just your run-of-the-mill God-believing Freemasons.
My family has a long tradition of Freemasonry but the tradition broke when my dad died when we were quite young. My mother never fostered it in us. We were also raised buddhist.
My brother eventually became one but I am sure he had to disingenuously declare that he believes in a supreme being despite his atheism. I for one wouldn't feel right joining having lied at the start. Besides, I would probably want to join an organization that would foster my secular values and not drive home ethical and moral lessons with the Bible.
I am glad to see there is this movement in America. Fremasonry as a whole as served as a "priesthood" of democracy and freethought although robed with religion. To me it makes total sense to divorce the religious aspects of The Craft from Freemasonry, especially in the modern era where so many are unaffiliated with a church.
Grand Orient Freemasonry will take time to establish itself in religious America but it will take hold if those who care work hard to make it happen.
