WASHINGTON DC – The Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia has issued the following letter this evening declaring the “Grand Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons of Lebanon,” sponsored by the Grand Lodge of New York, as an IRREGULAR GRAND LODGE.
The Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia, Most Worshipful Brother Richard J,Bautista, has declared that:
“the establishment of the Grand Lodge of Lebanon, without the full participation and agreement of our Grand Lodge, the Grand Lodge of Scotland, and the Grand Loge National Francaise to be HARMFUL to the world of regular Freemasonry, creates DISHARMONY among the Brethen and Lodges of the various jurisdictions and will ultimately bring DISREPUTE to the Craft in the Country of Lebanon.”
Brethren of regular and recognized jurisdictions should take notice.
