“Until a new pope is elected…” by whom:confused:
I believe they already have elected anti-popes of their own, depending on whether they are"Conclavists" …
Conclavism is the belief and practice of some who, claiming that Pope Benedict XVI, Pope John Paul II, and other recent occupants of the papal see are not true popes, elect someone else and propose him as the true pope to whom the allegiance of Catholics is due.
*]Pope Athanasius I (2011). In late 2011, Bryan Richard Clayton of Spokane, Washington organized a papal election via mail-in ballot and was himself elected, taking the name Pope Athanasius I.
Technically distinct from the above conclavist antipopes is the category of “popes” (sometimes called “mysticalists”) whose claims to the papacy derive from alleged divine revelations or apparitions. In these cases, there is no “conclave” process, and hence the term “conclavism” is arguably inappropriate.
The first post-Vatican II anti-pope to come to wide public notice, Pope Gregory XVII of the Palmarian Catholic Church, whose papal claim was asserted in 1978, fell into this category. Other antipopes of the same sort include the following:
*]Pope Emmanuel, the Italian Gino Frediani (1913–1984), a priest of Gavinana, who asserted his claim in 1973.
*]Pope Peter II, Chester Olszewski of Pennsylvania, a former Episcopalian priest, who asserted his claim in 1977 or 1980
*]Pope Gregory XIX, the American Reinaldus Michael Benjamins, who asserted his claim in 1983.
*]Pope Adrian VII, better known to American Catholics as Francis Schuckardt of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen, who asserted his claim in 1984.
*]Pope Peter II, born Maurice Archieri, living in Paris or Le Perreux, France, who asserted his claim in 1995.
*]Pope Peter Romanus II, born William Kamm of Cologne, Germany, a convicted sex offender currently in prison in Australia. Kamm, who is known as the “Little Pebble”, apparently does not currently pretend to the papacy, but is claimed to be the next pope in waiting.
*]Pope Peter II, born Aime Baudet, of Brussels, Belgium.
*]Pope Peter II, born Julius Tischler, a German, about whom little is apparently known.
*]Pope Peter-Athanasius II, who lives, according to different sources, in Brussels or in Canada.
*]Pope Leo XIV, of Angoulême, France.
*]Pope Joseph I, of Lucerne, Switzerland.
*]Pope Gregory XVII, the Québécois successor to “Clement XV” (Michel Collin).
