"The Global Fraternal Network"
The Global Fraternal Network is a product of THE MASONIC BBS, INC., a non-profit Organization which created this Site "to provide an electronic platform where Brothers can get together, develop closer global fraternal ties, voice their opinions, contribute ideas, foster a Masonic exchange, and promote Masonic education".
The friendly atmosphere on this server cannot be compromised! While heated and energetic discussions might be normal and are even encouraged, there is never any need to curse or use obscenities or in any way exhibit an un-Masonic attitude. Also, Master Masons are strongly reminded of their Obligation regarding the esoteric works of the Fraternity and can never discuss them over a medium such as these Forums. Remember...You are not in a Masonic Lodge in this Virtual Environment.
This Site may be monitored by a Provost Marshal of
any Grand Lodge. You are also reminded that in keeping
with Masonic Protocol, all correspondence between Lodges,
Districts and Grand Lodges outside of the jurisdiction
of your Grand Lodge must be transmitted through the Office
of your Grand Secretary.
* Brethren should be aware that they should not use the GFN or any other masonic forum on the internet to seek guidance on questions which should properly be addressed to their respective Grand Lodges, Provincial or District Grand Secretaries. These are the authorities on who should be relied upon to answer questions regarding protocol and sensitive masonic subject material.
The views expressed here and in its various forums are those of the individuals who contribute them, and not of any Masonic Lodge or any Grand Lodge, nor of the Editors, Officers or Personnel of the Global Fraternal Network.
Masonic Cyber Temple
The Masonic Cyber Temple where the Virtual Internet Lodge, No. 1 meets, is divided between Discussion Forums and Bulletin Boards. You can only enter these through the Door of the Cyber Temple. The Virtual Lodge will have its meeting dates and times posted. However, the Trestle Boards can be accessed 24 hours a day.
The Trestle Boards are a series of Bulletin Boards where you can read, leave and/or receive messages to/from anyone on subjects that may interest you. One Trestle Board is called "THE ANTE ROOM" and is reserved for general messages. The other Boards cater to particular subjects or to groups of Brothers sharing the same interests. Additional Trestle Boards will be constructed as we receive requests for them. This is a free service. There is no cost involved. Please Note: These Boards are not meant for individual Lodges. We are also working closely with several developers of audio and video programs for the Internet. When these programs become acceptable for general use we hope to install them.
