It's grounds for excommunication (as Bishop Fabian Bruskiewicz of Lincoln, Neb. did to his flock) since it goes against canon law in regards to secret societies. There have been encyclicals written about the ills of freemasonry.

I always thought the whole thinmg about secret societies was funny. In the US Catholic bishops were all hot and bothered about Catholics joining the Masons, so in the 1880s they founded the Knight of Columbus (not a secret society, but has a secret intitiation) Masons aren't exactly a secret society, but initiation to certain degrees are secret.

"ills of freemasonry"


What an interesting statement.

If becoming a Mason is grounds for excommunication, what is the punishment for those who are/were DeMolays?

I've known quite a few who were DeMolays, but are still members of the church.
