“Doctor, is it serious ?”… “I’m afraid it’s incurable…”

“Doctor, is it serious ?”…

“I’m afraid it’s incurable…”

 

Regular readers of LML in English are used to the irrational scribblings of our self-proclaimed spiritual guide. But his latest, sent to the “Dignitaries” of the GLNF on July 24th, takes irrationality to new heights. link

For the attention of Dignitaries of the GLNF

 

Subject : Complementary information concerning the suspension of relations with the UGLE

 

Paris, July 24th, 2011

My Very Dear and Well-Loved Brethren,

 

For a better understanding of the letter sent on July 14th to Alan ENGELFIELD, Grand Chancellor of the UGLE et the head of the Supreme Council of the English A&ASR, I fell it is necessary to make certain precisions and to unveil on the situation of a confirmed complicity implying certain influential members of the UGLE and some of our Brethren, dignitaries of the GLNF in whom I had placed my confidence and who have come to light recently as instigators and active participants in the troubled internal situation that we know.

 

Reality outweighs fiction, my Brethren !

 

The addition and the correlation of apparently unrelated elements have led me to identify among the most eminent members of the Supreme Council For France of the A&ASR the manipulators who are really responsible for the vast attempt to destabilise that we are suffering.

 

The first visible fact occurred on march 25th, 2010 during the general Assembly of the GLNF which, and it is evident, occurred in what resembled a “set-up”. The following events proved us right for very soon after the March 25th GA those members of FMR, with Seiler at their head, appeared as the “false nose” of others who had remained hidden until then. In the light of the results of the assembly Seiler solicited the Avenue de Villiers (head office of the SCF of the A&ASR – translator’s note) and attempted in vain to associate serge POULARD, who at the time was still Sovereign grand Commander, in the conquest of the GLNF management. Then came the episode of the “false letter” published by Koch (journalist at the French public affairs weekly “L’Express” – translator’s note) – he’s still under the effect of a criminal law complaint. Soon after, serge POULARD, who had refused to stand up against the GLNF, was ejected by jean-Luc FAUQUE, Henri LUSTMAN, Paul-André CHAPTAL and others.

 

From there, numerous GLNF Lodges labouring under the A&ASR were solicited and used to vote against the adoption of the accounts and approve the budget of the multi-location GA of October 16th. This inadmissible act of interference was accompanied by claims over the 3 symbolic degrees in the blue Lodges and other “Caesarist” so-called declarations which indicated the desire of these Jurisdictions to rupture with the GLNF (December 3rd, 2010, December 10th, 2010 and February 4th, 2010) on the same bases and pretexts as those used by FMR.

 

Until the end of last year we didn’t have the elements enabling us to doubt the good faith of our English friends even though we learned that they had become the recipients of mail and entreaties of the emblematic leaders of FMR who gave a calamitous version of the GLNF situation while obviously omitting to stipulate that they were the guilty party.

 

In November 2010 the secretarial department at Pisan accidentally received information from the secretary of a Lodge of the UGLE which presented a request for affiliation by several eminent members of the SCF ; Jean-Luc FAUQUE, Paul-André CHAPTAL, Henri LUSTMAN, Roland BRIENS, Jacques CHOPIN-FERRIER. Curiously, this approach did not respect the rules laid down by the grand Secretaries of Regular grand Lodges. In reaction we wrote to the UGLE on November 26th, 2010 to alert them to these facts pointing out that these brethren were part of those who were participating in the internal agitation of the GLNF and that this “migration” could have in the short to medium term the objective of placing them beyond disciplinary measures of the GLNF. Despite this information these leaders of the SCF of the A&ASR were admitted as members of the UGLE, who did so in full possession of the facts.

 

To that must be added the unacceptable nature of what occurred during the Scottish Order Fête in Paris in December 2010. I inform you that the GLNF was openly insulted by the leader of the SC of the A&ASR in Belgium in complete violation of the masonic rules governing the relations between a grand Lodge and a Supreme Council and also of the most elementary rules of courtesy.

 

When we realised that the UGLE was implicated in the internal events that we are experiencing on a daily basis we sent numerous communications and letters that we will publish on the private section of the GLNF website, in order that our English “friends” will not feel abused. That did not stop Alan ENGELFIELD, eminent member of the SC of the A&ASR in England and Grand Chancellor of the UGLE to receive the opponents Jean-Luc FAUQUE and Jean-Claude TARDIVAT in London, without even making the effort to inform us. The object of this interview was to envisage the creation in France of a district of the UGLE to house the opponents who boasted about how many they were.

 

It is scandalous that certain dignitaries and highly placed leaders of the GLNF indenture themselves and vassalise the GLNF as if it was an English colony which it certainly isn’t. This is without pardon and reminds us of the recent sad story where the tactless options of the UGLE recognised a faction of 2000 dissidents of the grand Orient of Italy who created the Regular Grand Lodge of Italy. They withdrew recognition of the grand orient of Italy which with 27000 members is in number the second regular masonic organisation in continental Europe after the GLNF and its 44000 members.

 

I leave it to each one of you to appreciate the posturing of the UGLE, without excluding the fact that the majority of its managing members, in good faith, have been misled.

 

Brethren, as you know, and will no doubt make it known to those about you, Recognition by the UGLE is not a “sacrament” and does not form the basis of Regularity which adheres to objective rules. Also, to avoid that the spreading epidemic of recognition suspensions becomes a means of pressure that serves the “opponents” to our obedience on July 14th I made the decision to temporarily suspend our relations with the UGLE knowing that it is either wilfully or otherwise at the origin of the posturing of neighbouring “small” Grand Lodges and that it is playing a particularly ambiguous role.

 

I find it regrettable that the leaders of the regular grand Lodges, friends of the GLNF until recently and who themselves were not exempt from grievances with regard to repeated violations of the foundations of regularity (the habitual presence of irregular Masons in their Lodges and acts of intrusion against the Sovereignty of Regular Grand Lodges) have exempted themselves in respect of our rules, without the slightest reaction from anyone.

 

Besides, it is comical that our Belgian friends become moralisers when you know their doubts concerning the difficult equation of the Great Architect of the Universe (cf : the declaration by Alexandre Cleven in the weekly Le Vif L’Express  of 1st to 7th July 2011).

 

It is important that you have these elements in mind in order to reply to the legitimate questions that the Brethren are asking.

 

My very dear Brother, I offer you my fraternal wishes.

 

François Stifani

Grand Master

First remark : the note is addressed to “Dignitaries of the GLNF”. In the light of recent events and the behaviour of those who frequent the 3rd floor of the Pisan bunker the choice of terminology is somewhat over the top.

 

Draw your own conclusions and we will consult the appropriate medical experts to determine whether or not the symptoms indicate megalomanic delirium with confirmed paranoid tendencies !

 

In his 3 page letter Ephesse I undertakes to demonstrate the warped international plot against him by the forces of evil and is going to “unveil on the situation of a confirmed complicity implying certain influential members of the UGLE and some of our Brethren, dignitaries of the GLNF in whom I had placed my confidence and who have come to light recently as instigators and active participants in the troubled internal situation that we know.”

 

Which enables him to “identify among the most eminent members of the Supreme Council For France of the A&ASR the manipulators who are really responsible for the vast attempt to destabilise that we are suffering.”

 

You could almost believe that the 3 Ruffian Fellow Crafts were part of FMR…. No, not at all. Our Grand Megalomaniiac requires an adversary of a different calibre. He states quite clearly, “those members of FMR, with Seiler at their head, appeared as the “false nose” of others who had remained hidden until then.”

 

And so we are off on the trail of the …..”traditional enemy”: Perfidious Albion !

 

We quote Ephesse 1st : “Until the end of last year we didn’t have the elements enabling us to doubt the good faith of our English friends EVEN THOUGH we learned….”

 

“When we realised that the UGLE was implicated in the internal events that we are experiencing on a daily basis we sent numerous communications and letters….”

 

“That did not stop Alan ENGELFIELD, eminent member of the SC of the A&ASR in England and Grand Chancellor of the UGLE to receive in the opponents Jean-Luc FAUQUE et Jean-Claude TARDIVAT in London, without even making the effort to inform us. The object of this interview was to envisage the creation in France of a district of the UGLE to house the opponents…”

 

Most interesting, in the present circumstances this recognition by Pisan of the possible creation of Regular DISTRICT that could be recognised by the UGLE and other foreign Grand Lodges.

 

This is foreseen in the text governing international Regular freemasonry…. When there is not (or no longer !) in the concerned Nation a Regular Grand Lodge Recognised by the UGLE…. A situation that you are forced to admit closely resembles ours !

 

Well, and obviously, it is important for Ephesse 1st to MINIMISE the unction of the UGLE (this is a new one … Up till now he said that it was this Recognition that made us TRUE MASONS, in contrast with our Brethren in the Grande Lodge of France who labour in total respect of the Rule… BUT are not recognised !!!

 

So EPHESSE 1st askes his last faithful few to “make it known to those about you, Recognition by the UGLE is not a “sacrament”…”

 

And to conclude peremptorily : “ faced with these explicit facts, on July 14thI made the decision to temporarily suspend our relations with the UGLE knowing that it is either wilfully or otherwise at the origin of the posturing of neighbouring “small”*** Grand Lodges and that it is playing a particularly ambiguous role.

Translator’s note – the “small” is presented as such in the original text… obviously to insist upon THEIR Smallness and HIS GREATNESS !

 

What disdain vis à vis our Brethren in the neighbouring countries (for example, Switzerland or the “little country, Germany….)

 

And out comes the trowel (excellent masonic instrument !) to apply another layer: I find it regrettable that the leaders of the regular grand Lodges, friends of the GLNF until recently and who themselves were not exempt from grievances with regard to repeated violations of the foundations of regularity.” (François, it isn’t cricket to rat on your mates !)

 

And another layer for our Belgian Brethren : “Besides, it is comical that our Belgian friends become moralisers when you know their doubts concerning the difficult equation of the Great Architect of the Universe.” If he continues like this for much longer he’ll have no Friends left to play with !!

 

Bur rest assured our Belgian Brethren (they are attacked twice in Ephesse 1st’s letter)…. His supposed enemies are legion. In his letter he mentions, among others, and in order of appearance :

 

François KOCH (L’Express was already attacked in his previous letter… but he brought it to its rightful proportion by pointing out that this weekly … “was losing readers”… And Ephesse 1st, isn’t he losing “subjects” at the present ?

 

Jean-Luc FAUQUE, Paul-André CHAPTAL, Henri LUSTMAN, Roland BRIENS, Jacques CHOPIN-FERRIER., all distinguished dignitaries of the SCF of the A&ASR…

 

In brief, all front row dignitaries, the most emeritous of Masons, respected whever they go in the world, but who, according to Ephesse 1st : “vassalise the GLNF as if it was an English colony”, no less !!

 

Doctor, perhaps we should reduce his banana ice-cream at lunch ? His eyes are almost ex-orbital and there is a distinct tendency to froth at the mouth.

 

Who ever said the GLNF was run like a Banana Republic !!!

Dear Winnie
Your devotion to duty is fabulous!
You have translated the most deplorably ulcerating pack of mistruths stifani has yet come out with. Your translation thus keeps us, in the English-speaking branch, abreast of all his utterances
(gastric troubles apart). I don't think I would have had the courage to honour his prose with a translation. Fraternally, thank you. Arturusrex

Brother King Arthur, 


Flattery will get you everywhere. I owe you one very good single malt on September 16th.
