Back to List of All Masonic Poems
When talk turns to religion
I have notions of my own
Have my versions of the Bible
And things I think alone.
And I find them satisfying,
Find them comforting to me,
Though I wouldn't lose my temper
If you chose to disagree.
For religion as I see it
Is a pathway to the goal,
And its something to be settled
Between each man and his soul.
Now I'm not a Roman Catholic,
But I wouldn't go so far
As to fling away the friendship
Of the ones I know that are.
I've lived and neighbored with them
Come to love them through and through
I've respect and admiration
For the kindly things they do.
I've known Methodists, Baptists,
Scientists and Jews,
Whose friendship is a treasure
That I wouldn't want to lose.
So when the people talk religion,
I just settle back and see
Every helpful, loyal friend
Each Church has given me.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
