In the fourth point of fellowship we are charged to support the character of
our Brother, either before his face or behind his back. In an age when
people eagerly seize rumors concerning the conduct of others, we must guard
the character and integrity of our Brethren on all occasions. As Freemasons
we are charged to erect our Masonic edifices, not tear them down, and a
careless word can do more harm than good.
