Grande Loge Suisse Alpina. la Franc-Maçonnerie Féminine en Suisse


L’Assemblée des Délégués de la Grande Loge Suisse Alpina a adopté le 6 juin 2009 la déclaration ci-après concernant la Franc-Maçonnerie Féminine en Suisse.

Considérant ce qui suit

  1. Depuis très longtemps et parallèlement à la GLSA, il existe en Suisse d’autres organisations maçonniques qui ne travaillent pas strictement selon la définition de régularité de notre Constitution
  2. s’agissant de loges féminines et selon la connaissance que nous en avons, elles pratiquent une maçonnerie de qualité qui, tout en admettant des femmes, est proche de la régularité selon la définition de la GLSA
  3. la GLSA documente l’existence de ces organisations, p.ex. dans le « Handbuch des Freimaurers » paru en 1999 et sur son site internet, en publiant notamment une synthèse sur la franc-maçonnerie féminine
  4. à bien des endroits en Suisse, une collaboration au niveau des loges s’est établie, soit dans le domaine de la bienfaisance, de conférences, de commémorations ou simplement pour partager les mêmes locaux

la Grande Loge Suisse Alpina

  1. reconnaît
    l’existence en Suisse de la maçonnerie féminine avec laquelle elle n’entretient toutefois pas de relations formelles et avec laquelle il n’y a pas, de part et d’autre, de droit de visite ni d’échange de garants d’amitié.
  2. est favorable
    à des contacts informels réguliers au niveau des directions suisses de la GLSA et de la Grande Loge Féminine de Suisse et considère que ceux-ci auront des effets positifs pour la franc-maçonnerie en Suisse.
  3. est ouverte
    à des contacts non-rituels entre loges de la GLSA et loges féminines pour collaborer activement dans les domaines social et humanitaire, culturel ou artistique, ainsi que dans d’autres sphères spécifiques

Grand Orient of Brazil broke ties with GLNF

The Grand Orient of Brazil has suspended relations with the French National Grand Lodge yesterday, February 13, 2012.

Tullio Colacioppo, the Grand Chancellor of GOL, informed GLNF that relations were suspended because of the deplorable situation in which the GLNF finds itself. This decision paves the way for Latin American Grand Lodges to start break relations with French Freemasonry.

Africa drops Stifani down a hole

January 6, 2012 Leave a comment

Traditionally the international power base of the GLNF has been in Africa, particularly the North African Maghreb Grand Lodges such as Morocco and a long list from Central Africa (Gabon, Congo, Cameroun, etc). Their Grand Masters, more often than not president of the country at the same time, followed the GLNF with blind faith, replying to its every demand, particularly when it comes to financial questions.

Well, the winds of change are sweeping across the dark continent. And the news is not good for François Stifani. With virtually every European Grand Lodge door closed to the GLNF the self-proclaimed spiritual guide was looking to support from the African Lodges as he fronts up to the forthcoming AGM in early February.

As a run up to that event, a debate on “African Masonry” will occur on RF1 on January 11th. François Stifani will be on air with Hervé N’Kom from the Grand Orient of France, Bernard Ollani from the Grand Lodge of France (GLDF) and Joseph Badila from the Grand Orient of Congo.

In preparation for the broadcast François Stifani requested the help of the African Grand Lodges. He wrote to them on December 16th asking them “…to communicate the points they would like to be covered during the broadcast…”. It would appear that the replies were not what he expected.

On December 26th the Grand Lodge of Morocco (GLRRM) declined his proposition. The Grand Secretary, Salah Cherradi, wrote, “The GLRRM authorises no-one to speak on its behalf, any such initiative would constitute a violation of its sovereignty.”

The Central African Lodges have not even bothered to reply. Ephesse is persona non grata in a number of African presidential palaces where he was traditionally received with full honours. Brethren well remember the sequence of a television report on FR2 showing Stifani, Foellner and Charbonniaud flying to Gabon in President Ali Bongo’s private jet for his installation as Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Gabon. And the red Cartier bag he received from another African dictator, official delegate of his Grand Lodge to the GLNF meeting in December 2009.

For months rumours suggesting an African participation in the financing of the Wagram apartment have been circulating in Parisian GLNF Lodges. Perhaps the full story is about to come out.
