Recognize-and-OBEY is the Traditional Catholic Teaching
The sedevacantist blogger Steven Speray has recently released an important blog post we are happy to republish on this web site, with his permission. It concerns the foundational belief of those who try to be traditional Catholics while believing the “Popes” after Pius XII to be valid and true Vicars of Christ — the so-called “recognize-and-resist” position (R&R).
Pope Pius XI Squashes the Recognize-and-Resist Position
by Steve Speray (Aug. 27, 2019)
Can the faithful recognize and resist the pope? I dealt with this question in a 2015 article. However, I recently stumbled upon some teachings from Pope Pius XI that castigate the recognize-and-resist theology.

On this page we present a slew of links to articles, blog posts, books, audios, and videos dealing with the subject matter of the Papacy, Sedevacantism, the false theological position known as “recognize-but-resist”, the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX), the Second Vatican Council, and the Novus Ordo Magisterium. We have tried as much as possible to group the links by topic. Due to the recent publication of the book True or False Pope? Refuting Sedevacantism and Other Modern Errors by John Salza and Robert Siscoe, there is a separate group of links relating just to that.

Remarkable how far Judaism's religious tolerance and "humanism" – in particular, vis-a-vis dark-skinned people – has progressed in the past 900 years. Chief Rabbi essentially quotes Maimonides word for word, in referring to African Americans as "monkeys". https://www.timesofisrael.com/chief-rabbi-compares-african-americans-to-monkeys/
