does this about sum things up?
Freemasonry is not a religion and no worshiping of any sort goes on in the meetings. Freemasons recognize that a person's relationship with his/her own deity is private and let people decide what something means using your own brain and knowledge of the language you get your information from. If you read a sentence in your native tongue then no one can really tell you what that sentence was. As such, when you read the koran you don't need another human being to tell you what you just read. Their message may not be the same one you got out of it. In understanding just that one thing a person may begin to understand what liberty truly is.
