Welcome to Magus Masonica
"I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it."-
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.

I hope all of my readers can see what is really behind such comments. The facts are that there are people on this planet who are really pissed off at us who are not under the thumb of institutional control. They are so irritated that I choose as a free human being to embrace my freedom. The message that I promote is one of just doing that. Recognizing the gifts you have been given and taking full advantage of them.
I often get accused of stating that Post-Modern Freemasonry is the "only true way." Well, truth is you'll never be able to accuse a fanboy of being observant. I never state such a thing. In fact it would be the opposite of what Post-Modern Freemasonry is all about. Freemasonry isn't one size fits all no matter what you may run across.
No one organization owns Freemasonry and you do not have to subjugate yourself to threats and bullying behavior on your path to Masonic light. You just don't have to.
I embrace freedom and you're damned right, I'm in no way ashamed of any of it.

2011 is shaping up to a banner year for Post-Modern Freemasonry. The Nation grows stronger with each passing day as our determined Brethren continue to prove what determined builders of pure motive and divine inspiration can accomplish. Holy Royal Arch Freemasonry is something very beautiful and unique. I never imagined in our still neonatal stage as a independent community we would be able to offer this current of Freemasonry. I am so proud that my expectations have been exceeded. Chapter St. Thomas Aquinas is located in Orlando, Florida. The Chapter is open to all 1613 Master Masons and they work in tandem with our Craft lodge in Orlando, Lodge Frederick Douglass. Chapter St. Thomas Aquinas works four degrees of Royal Arch Freemasonry.
4° Mark Master
5° Past Master
6° Most Excellent Master
7 ° Holy Royal Arch
This is a glorious and proud day for the Nation. Please join me Brethren and friends in offering sincere congratulations to our worthy Brethren. If you're a Master Mason currently in good standing within your local 1613 Nation lodge and our interested in the path of Royal Arch Freemasonry please, don't hesitate to contact Chapter Aquinas.

Oh how I love spring. The days are longer and gone are the endless hours of early darkness in the Pacific Northwest. I always find a new energy at this time of year.
The winter was very productive for the 1613 community, we are now seeing the seeds that where planet come into bloom. It does me great pleasure to announce to the world our newest addition to the family of Post-Modern Freemasonry - Lodge Frederick Douglass- 1613 Nation.
Named in honor of one of America's greatest hero's and fighter for the freedom of all men. That represents the attitude of the 1613 Nation perfectly. Equality and personal freedom are essential components of the 1613 platform. Lodge Frederick Douglass is lead by Worshipful Eric C. Collins. Worshipful Collins is a well known and hard working Brother who has shown through the years to walk as he talks. A veteran of Prince Hall Masonry, he brings a diverse skillset to the nation which we welcome with open arms.
I am personally very proud of these Brethren as they have shown great dedication and fortitude. It's not easy to establish a 1613 Nation lodge, the decision is one that is not appreciated by many. It shows great courage and a dedication to self sacrifice for the good of humanity. Please show these Brethren your support. When in Orlando stop on by, I'm sure they will welcome all friends and Brethren with open arms.

I am proud to introduce the latest addition to the 1613 family and the growing current of Post-Modern Freemasonry. Lodge Light of the Rising Sun, located in Gifu City, Japan.
This is a very significant lodge in many ways. First, it is the premier lodge of the 1613 Nation and the pioneer ambassador for Post-Modern Freemasonry in Japan. Second, it is the very first Rite of Memphis lodge in Japan. To think that for nearly 200 years since the inception of the Rite it has never been introduced to Japan, until now. And finally, it is one of only two gender equal lodges in Japan (the other under the jurisdiction of LDH) and is the only one to actually work in Japanese.
This is a tremendous occasion. Anyone who knows me would tell you that next to Freemasonry and the occult, Japan holds the closest place in my heart. Everything Japanese has always been a passion for me. I am so excited to have Post-Modern Freemasonry represented in a magical land where tradition lives alongside rapid innovation.
Lodge Light of the Rising Sun is comprised of some awesome leadership. Worshipful Master Annie Matsunami forged her Masonic career in the quarry of LDH. She is also an active Rosicrucian and an advanced occultist. Her passion for the arts and her spirit of creativity also shine through. She is a passionate adept of the 1613 Nation and I can think of no one better suited to lead our efforts in Japan.
The lodge is dedicated to the development of open table lodges so if you are in the area contact the lodge and I am sure they will welcome friendly travellers with open arms.

About a week or two went by and I thought I would check back in. Wouldn't you know it, but I was permanently banned. I guess the cadre of fanboys over at MFoL actually accomplished a goal for once. I laughed it off and went about my business.
The next thing I know I get an email from "Nathan Glover" spamming me about the improvements he made to said forum. He was quite proud of them it seems. Being that i was banned without a single contribution to the forum I wrote him back and in a gentlemanly manner asked him to stop spamming me.
This was his reply:
Translation: I'm a big pussy and we are all terrified of you.
Of course, this left me with a deep sense of satisfaction.
It's the simple pleasures.
