Statement On Masonic Authority
There is no national or international Masonic authority. Freemasonry in North America is governed by independent legislative bodies known as Grand Lodges who exercise absolute Masonic authority within a State or Province.
Writers may express their opinions about the Fraternity, but their statements are not authoritative. Only Grand Lodges can make authoritative statement, and these apply only to their members.
