What of them men?

In the Netherlands there is a Masonic publication called Thoth. It is published by an organisation that does not formally belong to the Dutch Grand Orient en hence Freemasons of any breed can subscribe to Thoth. I noticed that recently there is much room for Belgian authors. Since by far the largest part of the Belgian Freemasons are irregular, there is a much bigger chance of finding an “adogmatic” Belgian Freemason than a Dutch one. More and more Thoth seems to call for an “adogmatic” Freemasonry, or at least, “adogmatic” Freemasons get much room in the publication. Also members of the Dutch Grand Orient seem to be increasingly ‘becoming adogmatic’ (judging the articles of course). Questions about the Bible within the Lodge, the fact that regular Dutch lodges cannot intervisit with mixed lodges and also the impossibility of women to join regular lodges are questioned freequently.

I cannot judge of Dutch Freemasonry at large is indeed ‘going adogmatic’, but Thoth suggests that members do get all the room they want and I see no counter-articles. I also see regular Freemasons in mixed lodges and a recent coming-together in Antwerpen of Freemasons of whatever breed seems to have been very successfull.

What about you? Do you see changes in the way regular Freemasons look other kinds of Freemasonry?
