Welcome to Magus Masonica

Livin' in hater's minds rent free - since 2006

"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.

The crazy things people say

Some of it may be the heat, but summer time is a busy time for the fanboys. Some of the stuff I read about myself is pretty entertaining, some of it is pretty stupid, but it is never boring I will give them that.

One of the latest is that I told a fellow "Mason" over the phone to read Albert Pike's Morals and Dogma and simply open his own supreme council. That's odd, I never discouraged reading Morals & Dogma, in fact I do encourage reading it, in fact I encourage everyone read anything that will deepen their operative knowledge. I have no issue with anyone establishing anything, as is their right as free citizens under the canopy of Heaven to do, but that is not what we do. We don't operate as a supreme anything. It isn't something I advocate. Makes me wonder if the fanboys have just grown so lazy as to totally ignore my actual points of action.

It was also made clear that I told this same person to buy Duncan's Ritual and simply open his own lodge. Why would I do this if he is already a Mason? I have never told anyone to do this, not that I never will. I just simply haven't. I'm not the biggest fan of the Preston-Webb ritual found within Duncan's but whatever floats your boat.

Let's be clear. My individual position is that membership in and of itself means nothing. The initiatic experience and remanifestation is not simply to be a member, show up and be lead around a room in a hoodwink. It requires a deep change of life and a formal commitment to knowledge and its application in all aspects of everyday life. I no more consider a man or woman a Mason who goes through the degrees and then goes to the nearest bar to drink themselves into oblivion than I do the guy who would mow my lawn.

Freemasonry isn't an organization. It's not a product, it's not a club. It's a spiritual science and operative philosophy when applied to life is a vehicle from profanity to a divine state of being.

In my opinion, how the road is started is not as important to the destination.

A point of view from a Post-Modern Freemason.
