As I read this article, I felt as if Pompeda was holding a spark, and Satan was behind him, blowing away! ... I only hope and pray that no one listens to him. Dear Pope B, please don't hear Pompada!
Can you imagine a high ranking Roman prelate DEMANDING that the church of England submit itself to the Pope? or DEMANDING the Orthodox patriarchs submit themselves to the authority of the Pope? or DEMANDING the Official Chinese catholic church submit itself to the authority of the Pope?
The double standard is obvious: if you are a Catholic traditionalist you get imperious ultimatums, if you are an outright heretic you get respect and patience.
And, as if those were shabby, my personal favorite:
[H]ow obedient is Pompedda? Is it insubordinate to falsely insinuate sedevacantism and posture against the trads while one's boss (& the Vicar of Christ) and Fellay are trying to open a discussion?By the same coin, how obedient is Fellay? The question presupposes that it's perfectly subordinate to obstinately thumb one's nose at the emphatic pleas of the beloved John Paul, The Great (the Vicar of Christ), and receive episcopal ordination for the sole purpose of rejecting the development of Tradition out of disobedience, arrogance and selfishness.
That "logic" defies reason.
Now, when I see the Trads' extend their "Oh, they're so Catholic, how dare you ask questions!" approach to people who never left in the first place, like Hans Kung (still a priest, never excommunicated), Roger Mahony (ordained bishop by papal decree and licit head of the largest diocese in the United States by order of John Paul II) and Bill Levada (ordained bishop by papal decree, the prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith and not some apostate offshoot), their embrace of schism might get a fair hearing. But all we've got here is simply more of calling a church-wrecker "bishop" and a bishop "church-wrecker" from the masters of cafeteria Catholicism, which -- by their own standard for everyone but themselves -- is no Catholicism at all.
Yet again, snowflakes, it's par for the course. And, by the example shown here, I guess this means I could smear and bash a Cardinal Fellay (were such thing ever to happen) with impunity. Not that I would; who am I to boss the Pope around?
Oh, that's right -- I'm not a Trad.
