Many Masons these days feel that the only secrets of Freemasonry are the due guards, signs, grips and passwords, and say that anything else we know about Masonry is okay to discuss with non-Masons. If it's written in the minutes, they say, it's alright to talk about it.
Some believe that the rituals should be sacrosanct and never mentioned. Some jurisdictions only have a few copies of the ritual, coded into a cipher. Others print their rituals out verbatim, for anyone to read.
Some brothers hold a very strict view, and feel that nothing that goes on behind a tyled lodge door should ever be discussed outside the lodgeroom.
Are our obligations secret? Or is it permissible to tell the world what they are?
