The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons in the State of Connecticut – more specifically, the Most Worshipful Web Site of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, etc., – has taken one step closer to the danger zone.
They linked to The Tao of Masonry.
Apparently, the poor guy nominally in charge of the web site was so taken with the great job that the Friendship Lodge web team was doing that he got caught up in the spirit of the moment and posted a link to this very un-official Masonic blog. Un-official in the sense that I wrote on a sticky note around here someplace something to the effect of
And of course, the inevitable disclaimer:
My opinions are my own. This is my own web log, and I’m writing only as myself and not to advance any positions or opinions of any official Masonic body. And as for official Taoist positions? Well, you know…
Can’t get any more un-officialer than that, right? Just so, you know, we’re all clear on the concept.
Actually, I have myself to blame for this; apparently I made some offhand remark (probably on the new Friendship Lodge web forum) about how the GL web site needs more content. Not that they don’t have content – but I’m talking about the cool type of content.
You know, teh l33t int3rw3bz kind.
Naturally, you can see how much they think of me by the placement of my link. Go ahead, go check out the Grand Lodge AF&AM of Conn website. I’m right there, under the tab for Masonic Links… and then you have to click the link for Masonic Information.
No, I don’t have any idea what kind of “information” this is supposed to be, either.
That said, this dovetails nicely with the work that we (“we” meaning “everybody else on the committee except me”) have been putting into the new Friendship Lodge web site. Apparently, the Grand Lodge web folks really liked what “we” have done -“we” being the Friendship Lodge web committee of Eric Charette (Chairman), Bill Reyor, Eric Tetrault, Kyle Charette, and, uh, that other guy who they don’t allow to touch anything. Excellent work, brothers.
