It seems to me that sometimes this is the hardest part of obedience, because it is right on the edge. Where do we draw that line? The SSPX obviously draws it closer to the right/wrong side than the obedience/disobedient side (even if you disagree with their interpretation, that is their motivation). Others, such as the Franciscans, draw it closer to the other side.
Now I'm really derailing the thread!
