A debate about Marine Le Pen produced radical answers in recent days from the leader of the biggest Masonic body in French Freemasonry. Until now the Grand Orient invited the candidate of the Socialist Party, François Holland, François Bayrou and Jean-Luc Mélenchon. Of course the doors of the Masonic Temple were closed during the debates and just over 400 Freemasons, including Arcizet and other Past Grand Masters attended the Masonic (?), political (?) and social (?) debate.

GOdF has pledged to hold these discussions from September 2011 to January 2012, inviting the six major candidates (François Bayrou, Jean-Louis Borloo, Eva Joly, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Nicolas Sarkozy and the candidate of the Socialist Party) and to offer them the chance of expressing their political program and to undergo a whole series of questions about what they want from France, what are they offering to France and, especially, if they understand the needs of the French people.
Marine Le Pen problem is that she does not seem to have a real chance of being invited by the Grand Orient of France because, as is well known, the National Front and GOdF have always had an open conflict on issues like abortion, same sex marriages, euthanasia and others. When talking about elections we must agree that the only Grand Lodge that has not openly declared its vote against Le Pen (her father) - during the Chirac period - was the French National Grand Lodge (GLNF).
In the same vein, it should be recalled that the President of the Support Committee for Le Pen is Gilbert Collard (lawyer practicing in Marseille), initiated the Grand Lodge of France, now a member of the French National Grand Lodge (GLNF).
Gérard Contremoulin spoke on September 8, 2011, about the fact that "the National Front is incompatible with the Grand Orient." He began his comment by saying: "The National Front is not a Republican party! Its program is not compatible with the Masonic ideals, we have nothing in common with it, and it (the National Front) does not hesitate to affirm it."

The negative French model is a bad example for Freemasonry in Romania. Profane interference in Masonic affairs, as is happening today in Paris, it would only destabilize the Romanian Freemasonry and produce a very dangerous precedent. Given all this, MPAR/APMR decided not to publish the name of any Brethren involved (except that of the Grand Master who publicly admitted his membership to Freemasonry).
The worst case scenario could transform that European Masonic oasis into a French Masonic hell and also could bring the suspension of recognition from the United Grand Lodge of England and from other European and North American Grand Lodges.
