We all know these words from the A&ASR initiation ceremony, the first secret sign between Regular Freemasons. But Ephesse 1st has added a corollary, “…I don’t even know the alphabet in its correct order.”
On page 3 of his latest epistle to the Ephessians dated September 2nd, 2011 (also referred to as “miasmas” in previous correspondence) the self-proclaimed spiritual guide lists in alphabetical order those African Grand Lodges he claims support him and the GLNF link
“Afrique du Sud, Gabon, Côte d’Ivoire, Togo, Senegal, Bénin, Madagascar, Burkina Faso, Maroc, Congo, Djibouti, Cameroun, Maurice, Mozambique »
A, G, C, T, S, B, M, B, M, C, D, C, M, M !!!
I think Ephesse needs to go back to primary school, perhaps even kindergarten !
This is serious. He who pretends to be at the top of the GLNF blue apron Christmas tree and he hasn’t yet mastered the alphabet. Could this be the first real proof that Ephesse did not write to Nicolas Sarkozy, the famous letter the the Honorary Consul General for Djibouti in Marseilles has always claimed to be a forgery ???
But even more serious is his claim mentioned in the two sentences prior to his alphabetical mishap. “We thank the African Grand Lodges, both francophone and anglophone (they use the same alphabet !!!) , who took the initiative to make a solemn call in favour of the GLNF. This call witnesses the ongoing Brotherhood that we maintain with these fellow and friendly Grand Lodges, in alphabetical order ….”
A serious journalist verifies the facts; which is exactly what François KOCH of the French public affairs weekly, “L’Express” has done. In his blog “La Lumière” he publishes the official communiqué from the Conference of the Grand Masters and Grand Secretaries of the African Regular Grand Lodges. link
“The Conference of the Grand Masters and Grand Secretaries of the African Regular Grand Lodges, meeting in its eleventh annual session in cape Town, South Africa on August 18th, 19th and 20th, 2011,
informed of the prevailing difficult situation within the GLNF, mother Grand Lodge to several African Regular Grand Lodges,
aware of the historic role played by the GLNF in the development of regular masonry in Africa, notably by the consecration of sovereign Regular Grand Lodges on the continent,
concerned with the influence of regular traditional Freemasonry throughout the world.
confronted by the enduring crisis expresses its preoccupation and sadness,
sends an urgent call to the Brethren so that, under the inspiration of the Great Architect of the Universe, they can rapidly restore the unity of this sister Grand Lodge and once again find, in brotherly love, the path of peace, concord and harmony.”
Capetown, August 20th, 2011
This call bears little resemblance to François Stifani’s claim of “….a solemn call in favour of the GLNF.”
In a previous article we wrote that he “couldn’t lie straight in bed”. Nothing’s changed !!!
