SSPX thinks the tail wags the dog, that the vatican will have to come around to THEIR way of seeing things. thankfully, the holy see just gave the leash a short sharp tug. let those overweening dissenters know who's boss.
enough of their unchecked nonsense. enough of their vile anti-semitism. time to take the pride down a notch and do what they're told.
you'd think they'd understand what an opportunity they're being given. if they can't get their way with benedict, do they think the next pope will be more sympathetic?
I'll be the last one to defend the SSPX, but to my knowledge neither the organization nor the majority of its members (remember, only priests are members of the society) are anti-semitic. Bp. Williamson is a notable exception, but I've seen no indication the leadership stands with him on this; in fact, a month or so ago there were numerous reports that his expulsion from the society may be coming.
