Freedom Of Conscience

Though Moses Michael Hays is best
known as the founder of the Scottish Rite
of Masonry in America, perhaps more
important, he was one in the long line of
patriots who struck a blow for freedom
of conscience.
Born in New York in 1739, Hays moved
to Newport, Rhode Island, shortly before
the Revolution. In 1776, Hays' loyalty to
the American cause was impugned, and
he was asked to sign a loyalty oath. With
a courage rare for the times, when hys-
teria and suspicion ran wild, Hays de-
panded to be confronted by his accusers.
In an eloquent petition to the Rhode
Island General Assembly, Hays refused
to sign the oath. It was unconstitutional,
he held. Furthermore, he pointed out,
since Jews could not vote, the oath was
discriminatory. He prevailed; no one

After the Revolution, Hays settled in
Boston, where he soon made his mark in
business, chiefly as a maritime insurance
broker. He helped found Boston's first
bank, today known as the First National
Bank of Boston.
To his home came many of the notables
of the day, including Senator Harrison
Otis and Ezra Styles, President of Yale.
Hays, a Federalist, sought public office
but was swamped by the rising tide of
Jeffersonian Republicanism.
However, as deputy inspector-general
of Masonry for North America, Hays
achieved the eminence he missed in pub-
lic life. For four years he was grand
master of the Grand Lodge of Massa-
chusetts. Paul Revere was his deputy.
Moses Michael Hays died in 1805. He
is buried in the famous Colonial cemetery

ever again doubted his loyalty.
