He could still have chosen a heterosexual performer. (Okay, I’m being facetious here.)
No arguments here. I’m not saying that just talking to Michael Matt or John Vennari makes the president of Fisher More guilty. But you have to wonder why he would do this. He has to know the reputations of these publications. That’s why I bring it up.
Sadly, it’s worse: Fisher More College posts links to this trash on their official website. (A friend just brought this to my notice.) I can imagine how it would go down if I’d post, say, “Let India be given back to the British” stuff on my hospital’s website. Private opinions are one thing, but public endorsement in this case amounts to scandal. Link below:
Again, I hear what you are saying, and I agree. But I can’t help but take notice that ALL sedevacantist groups and “resistance” groups are “traditionalists”.
Or rather, they claim to be. The real traditionalists are people like Pope Benedict XVI, the FSSP, etc. These “resistance” groups are Protestants in Catholic garb. (Note the semantic similarity between “resist” and “protest”.) And as far as making immoral allegations about the Papacy is concerned, they rival Luther. :mad:
If I was a bishop, I would always be very alert when I start seeing groups becoming militantly traditionalist. Those who are on the other end of the spectrum such as you mention absolutely need to be disciplined as well, but as dangerous as they are, I don’t think they are as dangerous because they are so obviously against Catholic teaching. Those in resistance groups are in some ways more dangerous because they “look Catholic” when in actuality they are in total rebellion against Church hierarchy.
That’s true. They’re more likely to suck in (and win over) a devout, but disturbed, soul.
Point taken. But I do not consider embracing the Latin Mass of and by itself to be “ultra right wing.” I personally love the Latin Mass, but I do reject those who take it to extremes and use it to rebel against the hierarchy of the Church, such as CFN or the Remnant, or even SSPX. I guess this is a matter of semantics.
I just find right / left confusing, simply because in my country, “right wing” is Hindu nationalism and “Vedic values”; “left wing” is a moderate socialism or even liberal democracy. But your point is taken as well.
I have had real problems with Rorate ever since election of Pope Francis when their headline was “worst choice possible.”
Did they really say that? Anathema sit. :mad:
As far as I’m concerned, they have no credibility whatsoever. I actually do put them in with the “resistance gang” as you call them.
I’d put them more in the “SSPX / rumour mill” gang, but again, my perspective is that of an outsider. And some of their material is certainly problematic, especially their use of their own in-house theologians to form a “parallel magisterium”. Hmm, who else did that?
