In the past 13 years since the inception of this site, we've NEVER received as much e-mail (cumulatively) about one individual as we have about Mr. Brad Cofield- Ed King-Masonicinfo.com

It may seem that we are being harsh to this individual, but only because everything he stands for flies in the face of our sacred traditions.

eMasonry Fight Club


Recently, there has been a lot of blogs with various "camp" designations of different "types" of Freemasons. The "mainstream" or "Traditionalists" or "Institutionalist" or whatever vs. the "Traditional Cosmopolitan" or "Grand Orient" or "Progressive" Freemasons. The problem as I see it is that both of these groups, camps, sects what have you seem by and large to be stuck in the very same rut. One group points a finger at the other group as if they have had their collective lunch money stolen. They claim that the others "have no right" to call themselves Freemasons. The other group has claimed to have built something "better" or "different" but they still spend time seriously complaining about what it is they left behind. Kind of like someone who got a divorce still calling up their ex wife to argue, what sense does that make?

To the "Traditionalists" or "Mainstream" or "Regular" or whatever I ask: The UGLE severed relations with the GOdF well over 100 years ago. What happened? Did they dry up and blow away? Will these Internet fights cause anyone to just tell you all that you are right and then they will stop? What do you realistically hope to accomplish? Like it or not fellas Freemasonry is in the realm of the public domain. For whatever reason no one saw fit to trademark anything. You have your group, you have plenty of like minded to surround yourself with, do that. Get on with your lives, build your temple.

To the "Traditional Cosmopolitan" or "Progressive" or "Liberal" Freemasons I ask: You took the drastic steps and voted with your feet, why continue to lament for what you have left? What do you gain with these arguments? What does it accomplish? Will it help you grow your new organization? Are Internet battles an effective recruiting tool? Do you really think you are going to change the mind of those who's minds are made up? Is continuing to fight with those who do not agree with you, do not like you, do not respect you help you build your temple?
Again, you too have those who are of like mind. In fact you probably have many more of like mind who you have not paid enough attention to because you are so busy with this eMasonry Fight Club to service the seekers of your light. Get on with it, move ahead and build your temple.

Then there is me. A lowly Craftsman. I am going to do my best to build the temple. That is the task that is under my charge. I will work on subscribing my passions and leveling all of my interactions. I will continue to learn and absorb the light that is shined in my direction. I will cast that light onto others that so seek it. I may slip up on occasions and I will ask that those who care please whisper that good council, it will not go ignored.

To Add a Little Clarity


Hello All,
I have been fielding a lot of questions regarding the M.E.A.P.R.M.M. and specifically how it relates to speculative Freemasonry and the speculative jurisdictions. I hope that this quick little blog might help add clarity to the situation.

To start with the M.E.A.P.R.M.M. does not use a modified version of the Memphis-Misraim speculative Rite because the M.E.A.P.R.M.M. is not speculative Freemasonry. It does not initiate, pass or raise speculative Masons.What it does is practice Operative Freemasonry both in the form of working and building with stone (the manual) and the physical transformation of stone through the chemical (alchemical.)The M.E.A.P.R.M.M. was founded by Francesco Brunelli and Frank G. Ripel. Brunelli's authority over the speculative Rite of Memphis Misraim came directly from Robert Ambelin. The only real similarity between the speculative and operative Memphis-Misraim are the ancient Egyptian symbols and common origins of the workings. One is a speculative Rite, the other an operative guild. I belong to the operative guild and I have no claim over the speculative rite.Any talk of regularity, clandestine or amity when it comes to the M.E.A.P.R.M.M. is pointless as those are systems and terms with regard to speculative Freemasonry and the M.E.A.P.R.M.M. is totally different than those orders and is clearly not even in the same ballpark.The M.E.A.P.R.M.M. is located in in 13 states and 29 countries. It is it's own entity and it does not seek or require the authorization of any other body or entity.

I really hope that this helps to clarify any questions one might have regarding this subject. If any of you are in need of further clarity, I would love to address and and all questions and concerns. Again, thank you for your time and may God's gift of reason light our way.
