You're welcome Kett. I remember growing up going to clam and crab feeds at the Lodge my dad belonged to. When he passed away this past summer, a couple of my cousins who are also Masons, wanted to have a short "rite" done at his graveside service. I remember how green the Christian pastor got when it was mentioned to him (he also presented a nice presentation). They met privately and all went well. Obviously there is some doctrinal concern, but I'm basing my knowledge of Freemasonry on the good men that I've known that were and are ones.
