Universalistic lodges are those which have prayers to all "gods", a generic "god", and/or have funeral ceremonies which promise eternal life to all members of the lodge regardless of their belief in Jesus Christ as Savior.

Universalistic lodges include, but are not limited to:


Eastern Star


Job's Daughters

Rainbow Girls





Odd Fellows
