Several European Grand Lodges withdraw recognition of the GLNF ???
It is not yet confirmed but there are strong rumours that at least 4 European Grand Lodges have withdrawn their recognition of the GLNF. At this point Pisan has neither refuted nor confirmed the rumours. We can even say that in a letter dated May 7th and sent to all members of the GLNF, François Stifani, still pretending to be the Grand Master writes at the beginning of the 6th paragraph on page 1, “The GLNF is a regular Obedience…”. http://www.glnf.fr/private/upload/lettregm.pdf
If the GLNF is a regular Obedience on what grounds would the European Grand Lodges withdraw their recognition ? Of course we know the answer…with his constant transgression of the Landmarks while still Grand Master (prior to resigning as President of the GLNF Association and therefore as Grand Master) François Stifani has inevitably placed the GLNF in irregularity.
The rumours suggest that the Grand Lodge of Poland has informed Pisan by e-mail of its withdrawal of recognition with registered mail confirmation to follow and that the 4 grand Lodges of Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg have taken the same decision.
But to every cloud there is a silver lining. Without international recognition the GLNF delegation (headed up by our Ex Grand Master) will be unable to participate in the international gathering of regular Obediences later this month in Bolivia, an economy of at least 50000 euros for the coffers of the GLNF.
