Incorrectly, many think that the "G" happens to be there within the center from the Square and Compass. Additionally they appear to consider this means "God" and therein, we advise, lies exactly why in The United States, lots of people think Freemasonry is Christian.
Whenever we did our research by searching at 3, 500 blog publish comments (using our software) and a pair of, 500 "tweets" on Twitter on the 180 day period, we discovered that 75% of individuals leaving comments around the "G" stated it represented "God".
The "G" is just utilized in the center from the Square and Compass in Canada, U . s . States and Mexico. Not one other country on the planet includes a "G" within the center. Regrettably, there's some truth towards the "God" part in The United States where throughout the late 1800's and early 1900's, the "G" was utilized in lots of Masonic Lodges within the U.S. and it was sometimes described as "God" and often is still. The actual meaning is Geometry like a mention of Great Architect from the World (that could be God, Buddha, Allah or whatever your reputation for a great Being is [excluding Satan, Satanists aren't permitted in Masonic Lodges].)
I understand numerous Brethren who're Christian, Muslim and Jewish who don't particularly like adding the "G" in United States lodges, but it's there. Most Masonic Lodges simply think of it as meaning Geometry. As Masons know, Geometry plays an important role in architecture, music, the humanities and everyday existence.
