[First Presidency to Peter C. Larsen]

In answer yours 21th ult., namely, Is a lodge member allowed to go through the temple if he lives up to the requirements of the Church?

Church members who knowingly ally themselves with secret organizations against the advice and counsel of the Church should not be recommended to the temple, and we may add that such brethren also render themselves ineligible to hold presiding offices in the priesthood...

[First Presidency, Letter to Peter C. Larsen, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1910-1951, Privately Published, Salt Lake City, Utah 2010]
