That is definitely going to be a problem.
As for the Scottish Rite, I am a Scottish Rite Mason with the Valley of Miami. I think the Scottish Rite is amazing, and I strongly prefer it over the York Rite. The Scottish Rite even inspired me to get my first tattoo...based on the 30th degree Knight Kadosh.
The only thing that I feel like I should point out is that there are some pretty distinct differences between the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction (NMJ) and Southern Jurisdiction when it comes to the Scottish Rite.
The Southern Jurisdiction is the oldest Council in the world, and it dubs itself the "Supreme Mother Council of the World.
The Northern Jurisdiction was created with the intent that it would govern its own states (which it does).
