What's hot?

1)  Are you going to support Freemasonry? .   This area is intended for "those interested in Masonry" to get answers to questions.  There is an area for Masons to comment on why they joined Freemasonry... we would welcome input from current Freemasons in this section... what you write could help someone decide to join....

2)  Please visit and add your Grand Lodge and Lodge website to our links section!  We are looking for all current Grand Lodge links.

What is the “knife and fork” degree?

Those Masons who take more delight in the refreshments of the banquet than in the labors of the Lodge, and who are known for their social instincts have been called “Members of the Knife and Fork Degree.” This sarcasm was first used by Dermott in his Ahiman Rezon.
