A recent argument about sacramental validity between semi-trad bloggers Steve Skojec and Louie Verrecchio illustrates quite beautifully what the fundamental problem is in the camp of non-sedevacantist traditionalists.

If you want to have a stellar example of the warped theology and mental gymnastics you have to embrace in Neo-Traditionalist Wonderland, look no further than the issues being discussed by Mundabor and Louie Verrecchio on whether the “New Mass” (Novus Ordo Missae of Paul VI) is evil and/or sinful to attend. There we have two individuals who use Catholic principles very selectively and/or turn a blind eye to what is right in front of them, in order not to have to embrace that which would otherwise follow necessarily: Sedevacantism.

@Michael61479644 @AmicusPetri This is not a rash judgment. He’s said it many times before. Like here, for example: https://novusordowatch.org/2016/03/francis-monophysites-part-of-body-of-christ/ He constantly treats Protestants as members of the Church, he even ordered an Anglican “bishop” to be buried with Catholic rites!
