> Interesting. Appears to be drawing comparison between some of the tenets of Islam to Freemasonry. Other groups and associations also have similarities to Freemasonry.

I think what he is saying is that Islam is compatible with Freemasonry. Which is, essentially, true: Freemasonry requires that a man believe in a higher power, or “God” — whoever that may be for that particular brother. Beyond that single requirement, religion is not really discussed in Lodge.

So does Alcoholics Anonymous. Coincidence?

Yes. Confirmation that the metaphors of Freemasonry have a universal appeal. Great truths couched in symbolism to escape the eyes of the tyrant who would keep men ignorant.

Albert Pike's "Morals and Dogma" gives me the impression that Masonry is a Supra-Religious or Meta-Religious organization. 
 
Somewhat similar to the Greek Amphictyonic league.
