Bro. Simpson has published a copy of the recent resolution as well as transcripts from a Masonic-themed online forum of rather heated communications between an OES/Co-Masonic woman named Barb Thames and a Master Mason from California named Manny Blanco.
The reported OES resolution states:
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED, that the Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star, State of Georgia, does hereby state, avert and affirm that no member of its Grand or Subordinate Chapters in the State of Georgia can be a member of any Masonic organization that is not recognized by the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Georgia, F.& A.M.On Monday I asked Bro. Thames (yes, women Masons are referred to as Brethren) for her comments or to write an article about this issue for publication here on the Burning Taper, but so far she has declined my offer. I'd certainly like to know more about Co-Masonry and Co-Masons who are also members of the Order of the Eastern Star.
Bro. Barb writes in her messages that "all of the women Masons in Georgia that I know are in the process of resigning from the OES."
