Cat has filled in points I woulda made (really, I woulda!) if I hadn't
been off initiating people into an allegedly clandestine organization
this weekend (g).

As far as I know, determining clandestine or irregular status is also
a prerogative of each sovereign Grand Lodge in the US. I don't know
Masonic law well enough to respond to the implication that they may n
ot be allowed to recognize bodies considered irregular by UGLE.

I must also note that those jurisdictions here which do not consider
OTO irregular or clandestine, make that determination on the basis
that (the Caliphate) OTO *as presently constituted* no longer claims
(as Cat notes) to make Master Masons, and thus is irrelevant to
Masonry as such. Like being in a service organization with a Masonic
structure, like the Moose, Elks, or local Grange. Their ancestry may
have included Masonry (these all came into being during the ferocious
anti-Masonic backlash in the US after the Morgan affair) but they
aren't Masonry today.
