Dark Masonary and Light Masonary

Hello Masons, I myself am not a Mason but I hear this all the time: "There are Dark Masons and Light Masons, those that follow Satan(individualism and very materialistic) and those that follow The Grand Architect(more collectivist and idealist)" would anyone care to explain this?

dark or light
by: Fred

Thank you for your question, it never ceases to amaze me, how much misinformation there is being passed out as truth. There is no such thing as dark or light masonry. Masons do not worship the devil. Simply put, you are listening to non masons who haven't got a clue what our fraternity is all about. We refer to God, as the Great Archetect Of The Universe.

What Fred said.
by: Lant

You say you see this all the time. Out of idle curiosity, where?

We do not have a patent or copyright on the name 'Freemason', nor on the square and compass symbol. In the same way that somebody can go into a costume store and buy a Roman collar and start introducing themselves as 'Father James', there's nothing to stop somebody from renting a hall and passing themselves off to the gullible as Masons. So it's hypothetically possible that somewhere, somebody is conducting Satanic rituals under the guise of Freemasonry. The thing is - if such exist - they would be no more real, no more legitimate Freemasons than James is a real, consecrated, legitimate RC priest

What you have seen is nonsense. Mainstream, legitimate Masonry has nothing to do with Satanism. Much of this fable was produced by a late1800s French con artist calling himself Leo Taxil. He made a fortune writing alleged exposes on Masonry and doing the lecture tour routine. He was introduced to the Pope, moved in high society. Then one night, in front of a packed crowd, he dropped a bombshell - the whole thing had been a fraud.(This is a matter of public record. It was coverd by the newspapers of the day and you can check is out if you wish.) Taxil was a fraudster, but his Satanism claims still linger.

Anyway, again, may I ask where you read this?

Light and Dark Masons?
by: Tim

I would also be interested in knowing where this information can be found. In almost two decades of being a Freemason I've never heard of Dark Masons and Light Masons. I know this is hokum, but I'd still like to see where this information is coming from. Thanks.
