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.

Many appeal to the alleged piety of various semi-trad false resistance leaders. However that does not prevent them from objectively being in error and heresy. Many deceitful heretics of history such as Arius were so successful precisely because of their alleged piety.
Still waiting for some R&R trad to respond to our challenge: https://novusordowatch.org/2019/11/challenge-to-recognize-and-resist-apologists/ *Saying* Francis is Pope is a lot easier than actually *believing* it, isn’t it? #catholic #fssp #sspx #fsspx #popefrancis
Ditto. And he trained as a modernist "Scripture scholar" as well, so he knows all the weaselly tricks and slippery language for transforming history into fairy tales and dogma into meaningless gibberish. Tagle-oglio... https://twitter.com/RorateCaeli/status/1203636003547877376
Every time he teaches anything on faith and morals he's doing so as "Pope." It's all magisterial, according to him. And he told you so. If his mouth or pen is moving, and he's telling you something about faith or morals, he's exercising his "teaching authority."
If he's pope as all the neotrads want to claim, of course it is. That's how the Papacy works. Only way to get out of it is if he's NOT pope! 😇 https://twitter.com/FiatLuxGenesis/status/1203421306911375361
