- "For whenever the door of any Degree is closed against him who believes in one God and the soul's immortality, on account of the other tenets of his faith, that Degree is Masonry no longer." -- Bro. Albert Pike
- "If, anywhere, brethren of a particular religious belief have been excluded from this Degree, it merely shows how gravely the purposes and plan of Masonry may be misunderstood." -- Bro. Albert Pike

By the way, for any Brother who would like to see these quotes in full context, they are found in Morals & Dogma, Ch. XVIII, Knight of Rose Croix.
