"Meanwhile are the Masons keeping quiet or what?"

Not keeping quiet Les, just checking my facts.
Having only been involved for the past few years, I can't speak with authority on all aspects of freemasonry but I can find no connection with sword dancing in any of my literature and I can say with certainty that the nearest any of the brethren of my lodge have come to a sword would be a Wilkinson Sword razor-blade.
There's masses of history and ritual in freemasonry, some of which is very ancient (one of the reasons for my interest) and those rituals are different at the various levels of involvement but, again, there are no rituals (to my knowledge) which involve a sword.
