Nice Try, Mr. McCall!

Feminism Hits the SSPX

Feminism Hits the SSPX

Concomitant with the absorption of the SSPX into the conciliar church, is its infection with worldliness.  After all, what is conciliarism, but a capitulation of “Catholicism” to the values of materialistic secularism?  Anyone who understands this, then, will not be surprised to see all the same deviations currently plaguing the conciliar Church (e.g., feminism, materialism,…

Accordists: Saying Everything and its Opposite

A few days ago, FSSPX/News published another accordist apologetic by Fr. Paul Robinson, the central premise of which was this: Those Resistance people who claim Archbishop Lefebvre changed his posture towards Rome after the 1988 episcopal consecrations, and thereafter refused to consider a practical accord with unconverted Rome, are thereby impugning the integrity of Archbishop Lefebvre, who…

Rome’s New Secret Weapon

(Steering a course between Scylla and Charybdis) by Sean Johnson 1/2/18   Introduction:  More and more, SSPXers are found lamenting the “missed opportunity” 2012 represented for a practical accord with modernist Rome.  Like a young man reminiscing about his childhood sweetheart, and wondering what might have been, these sentimental “traditionalists” still feel the pangs of…
