Regarding the "Decision and Edict" that prohibited all Missouri
Freemasons from having a website anywhere else but on the Grand Lodge's
system, I have learned that the Decision and Edict has been retired,
following the completion of the term of the Grand Master who originally
promulgated it. According to a brother in Missouri, who relays the word
of their Grand Lodge webmaster, The Grand Lodge of Missouri now has a "
Practice" which now makes hosting on the grand lodge server optional
instead of mandatory:
There is no longer any language requiring Missouri Freemasons to have
their website on the GL's server. As stated on the home page of
mofreemason.com, "This web hosting service is offered to all Missouri
Subordinate Lodges, Districts, Appended Body Clubs, and Individual
members..." The key word is "offered" and not "required".
We are happy to welcome the Grand Lodge of Missouri back to our
Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of the State of
6033 Masonic Drive Suite B
Columbia, MO 65202-6535
