Obligations and Charges, Jesters and the Shrine

In the upcoming issue of Living Stones Magazine in my monthly article I will tackle a discussion of the Royal Order of Jesters or Jesters for short.  This group is an invitational body of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.  Now, they will claim they are not "part of the Shrine."  They just happen to be made up of Shriners.  The Shrine will likewise claim that they are not Masonic, they just, likewise, happen to be made up of nothing but Freemasons.

A pin issued by the Jesters depicting a naked Jester with a giant erect penis so large it is forced to rest upon his feet.  The Jesters claim mirth is king, but we are left to wonder whether or not their kind of mirth is Masonic

It is my contention that as Freemasons our obligations never rest. for the upcoming issue which is available in hardcopy subscription or electronic only.
