As Scottish Rite Masons, one of our core values is tolerance. This Easter season we all must be tolerant, respect the Faiths of others and allow each to practice as their own conscious dictates.
Remember the words of Illustrious Harry S. Truman, 33°, while dedicating a chapel to the memory of four men as President of the United States he said, ‘‘We must never forget that this country was founded by men who came to these shores to worship God as they pleased. Roman Catholics, Jews and Protestants all came here for this great purpose. They did not come here to do as they pleased — but to worship God as they pleased, and that is an important distinction.’’
Please have a blessed Easter.
