Freemasonry & Religion?

Prevalent notion is that Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a supersession for religion, it is a brotherhood. However, one organization in the U.S. transmuted all that.


They call themselves the Sinagogue of Satan. Founded by Michael Shane Margolin who in 1999 engendered a religion predicated on the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Free Masonry’s definition of Satanism, as described in Albert Pike’s work "Morals and Dogma."


Satanism??? Affirmative, it's lamentable enough Mason's acquire a bad reputation for being Satanists themselves but this religion is not based on those of the popular Satanists of our day, nor is it based on any work except for Aleister Crowley, in fact they took their denomination from a short story in his book Konx om Pax, called "Thien Tao; or, The Synagogue of Satan." Sinagogue, spelt Sin as opposed to Syn was intentional verbally expressing "we are Sinners not Jews, albeit some of our members may be both." The Sinagogue of Satan subsists to give people of subcultures and minority religions, a licit connection to their notions that can be utilized in a court of law if the need arises. Such as housing, job discrimination and harassment. And insuring religious rights to those in the military.


The Sinagogue of Satan is not affiliated with any other satanic groups and is not bound by any other group’s ascendancy. They do however have a close relationship with the E.G.C. within the Ordo Templi Orientis, They were kind enough to grant the Sinagogue of Satan the right to utilize and acclimate E.G.C. rituals for their needs and for this they are genuinely accepted by a majority of Masons, they are the only satanic group to have a connection with an order of antiquity and Freemasonry. They have no central temple or lodge, their priests/priestesses and ambassadors often hold meetings and classes in their homes and online. They additionally accept no money for their time and accommodations. This is additionally incipient as far as religions go expressing that the "work and attendance is a “Labor Of Love” and not for monetary advancement."
