Default Re: atheism & freemasonry - can they coexist?

My husband is a freemason and a non-believer; he just pays lip service to the 'supreme being' thing. Once you're in, you're in, and religion need not play any further role. so yes, you can be an atheist and a freemason, as I live with one. He has no belief in god, a god, goddess or the supernatural. If and when it comes to anything to do with god in the lodge, he sees it merely as a part of the many ancient rituals of the craft; this supreme being belief does not interfere in anyway with his life inside or outside of the lodge, and he does not interfere in anyway with the craft rituals, which he highly respects. He is a freemason because his father is one, and my husband was initiated in England, not here in Oz. So he's a pommie atheist freemason, beat that!
