Portland Lodge Defaced By Graffiti

KPTV - FOX 12
An irregular lodge in Portland, Oregon was vandalized by graffiti on August 9th. The Sons of Haiti Grand Lodge building was painted with swastikas and racist messages. From KPTV in Portland.

The Sons of Haiti Grand Lodge has lodges in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Texas and Washington. It was founded in 1962. It is listed on the Phylaxis Society list of bogus grand lodges and is not descended from Prince Hall Freemasonry.

Regardless of jurisdiction and affiliation, this is a disgusting act of vandalism. My own lodge has been defaced with graffiti over the years, resulting in us installing surveillance cameras, along with our alarm system. At the very least, every lodge needs to have an alarm on its doors and windows.

The age in which we live. *sigh*
