The Freemasons Society of Ghana has come forward to address and debunk some of the misconceptions surrounding their organization. Contrary to certain beliefs, the society has emphasized that it is not involved in any occultic activities.
Members of the Freemasons in Ghana have highlighted their positive contributions to the Ghanaian community. They have also pointed out that many of their members hold significant roles within the country.
The society has strongly denied any associations with negative practices. They have clarified that they are not a cult but are respectable members of the community. A member of the society, in a statement to Joy News, said, “We don’t kill people.
We don’t drink blood. We are not an occult organization but one with a deep respect for humanity.” He further added that Freemasons can be found in various sectors, including government, politics, industry, clergy, and healthcare.
Former Ghanaian president John Kufuor, a known Freemason, has previously dismissed such misconceptions, emphasizing that Freemasonry is not a religious group. Both Kufuor and the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, have been seen attending meetings of Grand Masters of the Freemasons in Britain.
The Grand Lodge of Ghana has also previously addressed rumors, stating that the group does not engage in any form of human sacrifice for wealth or power. They believe that certain individuals, seeking fame and wealth, have falsely associated them with occultism and idol worship.
Freemasonry is one of the world’s largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal, and charitable organizations. Members from diverse backgrounds come together as equals, regardless of their faith, ethnicity, or social status. The society believes that their most significant contribution to any community lies in the character of a Freemason.
