The Grand Lodge of Tennessee recently kicked out a Brother because he advocated for his gay friends and associates. It’s madness. Tennessee has long been a problem in this area, having kicked out a couple of gay Brothers in 2016. I don’t understand the kerfuffle other than it being a manifestation of generalized bigotry, which also keeps Prince Hall Lodges out of recognition in now a small number of jurisdictions. I wish the now alleged former Brother well.
