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.
Annoy Francis, listen to TRADCAST! Our new full-length episode is out: https://t.co/54h7CzDxpf It’s like drinking from a firehose of information for over an hour! #catholic #infiltration #amazonsynod #popefrancis #fsspx #sspx #fssp #fatima #trcot
Good luck with that: Novus Ordo canon lawyer Dr. Ed Peters says an “official response” to Sosa’s latest heresy is warranted - https://t.co/dUNnyaAfOc They’re going to accuse him of heresy right after hell has frozen over… And he probably thinks that’s symbolic too. #catholic
So, Mr. Zuhlsdorf… is Arturo Sosa a Catholic or not? https://t.co/qSUngWgFIn Just making comments about how bad Jesuits are doesn’t cut it. The question is: WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES of what Sosa has said? #catholic
@Anoxia3 @NovusOrdoWatch The Apostle Paul taught and warned:
Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons (1 Timothy 4:1).
@Vae_Victis_1958 @NovusOrdoWatch I’m puzzled by people lamenting the attacks on the JPII Institute. Name your institute after a guy who covers up child abuse, who kisses the Koran and places a Buddha statue on an altar, and you can expect the worst.
