I keep hearing about clandestine or irregular masons. What does this mean and how do I know I am joining a legitimate masonic lodge?


There is an article by David Pugh of the Phylaxis Society that answers this question quite nicely. Here it is: "Greetings...This blog will serve as a platform to document new organizations throughout out the world as they come to our knowledge. Please note that this list is a continuous work in progress and may never be “complete” as new Bogus bodies seem to sprout up daily. That being said if you are trying to determine if a masonic organization is legitimate you may follow these simple guidelines for the United States only. There are only two legitimate Grand Lodges in any state . One being the Grand Lodge Of State, for example The Grand Lodge Of Indiana F&AM and the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Indiana F&AM. Regarding Prince Hall Affiliated (PHA) Grand Lodges there are two states where the Grand Lodge does not have Prince Hall in the name. In the state of Florida it is the M.W Union Grand Lodge of Florida;Belize,Central America;& Jurisdiction Prince Hall Affiliated. In addition The M.W Stringer Grand Lodge F&AM is the PHA Grand Lodge for the state of Mississippi(please note, there is not a Prince Hall Grand lodge in every state). In short if a masonic styled organization does not belong to one of the above mentioned categories in the United States unfortunately it is not legitimate. If anyone has knowledge of a Bogus masonic organization that needs to be included to the list please send the information to bogus@thephylaxis.org and it will be added." Thank you David Pugh, MPS Commission on Bogus Masonic Practices [Please note: For a list of known bogus, clandestine, or irregular lodges go to https://thephylaxis.org/bogus-masonry-blog/#more-1480]
