La Perle de la Lumière goes « independent »…
…and gets the « RED HAND » !!
It is reported on Myosotis Septimanie link
The R.L La Perle de Lumière N° 1339 et the Orient of Alès in Septimanie Province has been pumped dry !! During the month of January their bank account (legally a sub-account of the GLNF national account), having started the month with a positive balance of 304.72 euros, was debited 6 times by the PGT to end the month with a negative balance of 4911.28 euros. link The Lodge WM and Treasurer were unable to do anything to resist this systematic pillaging of an account that, according to the GLNF by-laws, is not permitted to be in the RED !!
Faced with a situation beyond his control the WM called a Council of the masters on February 17th which unanimously decided :
that the managing functions of the GLNF masonic institution are vacant
that the masonic activities of the Lodge are independent and do not wish to be linked to the administrative and financial difficulties of the GLNF Association
to become an “autonomous” Lodge concerning the financial and administrative constraints linked to its masonic activities
proclaim null and void the modifications to the GLNF Constitution and by-laws on December 3rd 1997, February 28th 1998 and all subsequent modification.
That hereinafter the RL La Perle de Lumière will labour according to the Constitution and by-laws of 1986 and will disregard all subsequent texts.
Please note that the 1986 text states :
“The GLNF represents and governs the “general” interests of all the Lodges under its Obedience on the surface of the globe.”
More recently this article (Constitution 2009 Article 3-1) was modified to read :
“….all the Lodges have been assembled in a single “unique” Grand Lodge”, under the authority of the grand master, supreme leader of the masonic Order in France.”
The text no longer reads the same way. François Stifani, self-proclaimed spiritual guide, has decreed that he is the absolute monarch !!
Our Brethren of the RL la Perle de La Lumière have had the courage to decide to return to the situation that never should have changed : the Lodges make the obedience and not the reverse !!!
Unfortunately, we are under a totalitarian regime. As soon as the RL La Perle de la Lumière declared its independence a recently created blog La Main Rouge, a fabrication of the Stifani propaganda machine, denounced the Lodge’s decision and demanded that it quit the GLNF and return its warrant. link No doubt the appropriate ordinance announcing the Lodges dissolution and the exclusion of all its Brethren is already on the desk of our EX-Grand Master (who resigned himself) but still wants to sit in the big chair, travel 1st class, stay in the top palaces, dine at the best tables, use the executive washroom and have the only key to the drinks cabinet !!! And all this financed by our fees !!!
