I did not follow the most recent dust up closely but I did read Bishop Schneider's statement that SSPX has done nothing 'weighty' to warrant the removal of their faculties and alienation from Christ's Church, blah, blah, blah.
I was really disappointed in Bishop Schneider. I thought he had more going on for himself.
Does SSPX have legitimate gripes about the catechesis and liturgical abuses by Vatican II nutcases?
Some of their gripes are, of course, legitimate. But with other gripes, they go right on into kookoo land themselves.
At the end of the day, there is nothing in the watered-down catechism that changed doctrine. It is pablum but the substance did not change or contradict Catholic theology.
Consequently, there was no 'weighty' reason for them to have ran off like petulant children. They have to admit to sufficient facts that they have been wrong and express their acceptance of the substance in the Catechism.
SSPX has been operating without faculties, simulating sacraments, performing illicit ordinations and episcopal elevations.
The fact that they won't accept the substance in the Catechism and they are off creating their own shtick makes them every bit as dangerous as the nuts who left the Church because they reject the substance of moral theology in the Catechism and are performing licit transubstantiations with puppets in the Holiday Inn.
If Bishop Schneider had penned a piece about the Holy See having no 'weighty reason' to continue to excommunicate 'women's ordination' groups, Bishop Schneider wouldn't have a sane person rushing to his defense.
The problem is, the Holy See should have pulled the trigger years ago and excommunicated SSPX. Just like the pedophiles and heretics. they let it ravage the vineyard. They are standing by frozen in fear, letting SSPX simulate sacraments and cause confusion and great harm.
Bishop Schneider's poophooing of the material and spiritual problems with SSPX was outlandish.
I have scratched the man off of the list of lucid shepherds and I would advise you to do the same.
The Bishop is smart, brave and has said many things that ring true in the absurdity of a papacy lining up heretics to spoon-feed us heresy from the counterfeit church they have built in Germany. But, he has blinders on and has used his pulpit in bad faith on this one. If he does it with this subject matter, he is not a reliable source.
