Brother I was passed to the 2nd degree after two weeks and a month later was raised to the High and Sublime degree.

I didn't think it was that quick at the time, but I certainly do now!

No one appears to be mentioning the obvious. So I will.

In episode 2 we had a Master asking his future FC to recite certain questions. The Master should have known better than to reveal the answers.

Landmarks have been encroached by UGLE and I am disappointed with them for allowing this.

Remember the 1st degree obligation, "Always h.., co.... and n.... re....any p... or p.... etc.

This has been broken. The GLOS should not recognise UGLE .

.

Maybe things are done different north of the border but here the brother is given both the questions and the answers immediately following the first two ceremonies, otherwise how is he supposed to know what to say?

The answers as given are not in the ritual (and in the majority of cases he is not given any ritual book until after being Raised) especially if the Lodge has not given the Second Degree Tracing Board which is the basis for the question leading to the Third.

In our Lodge the answers to the questions are censored.

If the "candidate" (Brother) does not know the answers, then he can ask his proposer/seconder or anyone in the Lodge.

We keep the answers secret.

The questions and answers cards are available to purchase by anyone.
My own point of view is I would prefer to give the candidate the questions and then expect him to discover the answers himself, as you have stated.
In some constitutions he is expected to recite all the parts of his previous ceremony including the obligation.

As far as I could make out no "Signs or Secrets" were revealed.

Monkey - you need to have a re-read of the forum rules, brother
"The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there's no risk of accident for someone who's dead."

Because of this rule ...

C/ Criticisms Of Specific Grand Lodges
While it may be reasonably argued that some Grand Lodges are losing site of the purpose of Freemasonry, it is unfair to point fingers at any one Grand Lodge. We have members of virtually every Grand Lodge on the forum. Thus an attack on any one grand lodge is an attack on our forum member from that Grand Lodge. We also have several Grand Lodge officers here who are trying to make a difference, both on the forum and in their Grand Body. If you have issues with a specific Grand Lodge, please take it up with that Grand Lodge via your lodge secretary.

There are a lots of members in our fraternity that do not know what are and are not Masonic secrets. I do not include you amongst them Peter.
