THe freemasons are not a religion, they are a philanthropic group with playacting, as well as part of the OLD BOys Network, that many business clubs are.  I know a few freemasons and read one's magazine, that's supposed to be secret information. 
(snip)

Philanthropic and philosophical group.

Part of the charity work dates back to times Before there were any government programs for the aged, sick etc. Litterally hundreds of fraternal / (female version) organizations exist /existed that helped members and their families if something happened to them.

The philosophy still happens, but takes involvement. A lot of that is like Wicca, in that it's members only.

I'm somewhat surprised that the magazine would be considered secret in your friends jurisdiction.

There are / were Druid groups that spun off of Freemasonry and it's other off-shoots. That's probably the link the OP was thinking of.
