Mr. Townsend and all,
Thank you for your most interesting and sincere reply. Since you mentioned "infallible central figures" I find in Abdu'l-Bahá in London on page 98, "If you belong to a Society already do not forsake your brothers. You can be a Bahá'i-Christian, a Bahá'i-Freemason, a Bahá'i-Jew, a Bahá'i-Muhammadán."
As I read this I must assume that this Sacred Writing by a most respected leader permits membership in Freemasonry. Was this position officially changed? When was it changed if it was?
I truly appreciate being able to seek answers among the members of this list.
With deepest respect,
