Are Masons naked

when they are initiated?


That is a rumor which has no basis in fact. Masons do remove all of their clothing, and all jewelry, including their wedding ring before the ritual begins. They are provided with a blue garment to wear during the initiation. The garment has one leg rolled up and the left half of the chest is bare for the first initiation. If the candidate appeared in public as dressed for initiation, people would think it strange, but he would never be arrested for indecent exposure. The candidate is hoodwinked (blindfolded) during the first portion of the ritual and he is led around with a rope around his neck. The left chest has been left bare so that the sharp point as of a sword can be placed against his "naked left breast" as he approaches the oath of secrecy.
