Was Mike simply quoting someone? Yes, where did Mike say that before? In our time though, many confessors can give bad advice sadly. Even indult priests could encourage on a soul to accept the errors of Vatican II and the New Mass as legitimate, although for all I know some may discourage that. It is best to stick with a SSPX priest though if you want a good confessor. Let us leave the jurisdiction issue aside though so as not to risk veering off from the topic of this thread.
