Why is it that in a lot of these groups like the SSPX or the schismatic traditionalist groups, a significant amount of members are racist or antisemitic. I don’t mean to say all members of these groups are, but there do seem to be a lot more racists in these groups than in the good old Catholic Church. Why is that? I’ve never had a reason since I would feel that the bible condemns racism, and antisemitism in the sense that we are all children of God.
I will admit though I may be basing this on some biased info. I was in a human relations class, and we looked at the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is very left leaning. Anyway it mentioned there are a lot of schismatic Catholic groups that they consider hate groups. Does anyone else find this true? I also remember that the Bishop who started the SSPX was a member of the French National Front and another bishop in the SSPX was a holocaust denier. Is this true?
Also, are these people more likely to be sympathetic to Fascism? I once saw an article from a site called Catholic Family News (which I found out was a traditionalist site) saying how Franco and Fascist Spain wasn’t that bad (granted I’ll admit the Socialists would have been worse. Probably a lot more martyrs). So are a lot of Traditionalist groups fascists or sympathizers with these groups?
Sorry for the long post, but i’m just curious
