When a member is accused of breaking Masonic Law
A Freemason would consider the ultimate punishment for breaking Masonic Law to be expulsion from the order. Such expulsion is total, and removes an individual’s right to enter any Masonic Lodge anywhere, all rights and privileges previously earned, and the right to ever apply for membership again.
This punishment, as such, is only handed out for extremely serious offenses. However, an outside observer may disagree about what exactly constitutes the “worst punishment,” because there are some pretty bad one’s on the books.
