He was a member here for a while, so he deserves an explanation why he's been banned from CathInfo.
CathInfo is a forum for Traditional Catholics. That is to say, those who support the Traditional Catholic movement. There are several groups that are considered "Traditional Catholic", and you are free to pick one, but you must pick one.The Traditional Catholic movement is not optional, any more than saving our souls is optional. I recently wrote a long post about this. https://www.cathinfo.com/sspx-resistance-news/aloof-from-the-entire-traditional-catholic-world/Wessex is a classic case of cursing the darkness, while endeavoring to blow out everyone else's candle.
He is an endless source of negativity as of late, but he hasn't been like this from the beginning, or this ban would have happened long ago. I gave him a lot of latitude for the sake of his long past here on CI.
CathInfo is not a catch-all for all malcontents or those who merely hate the modern-day Catholic Church (as they understand it) or more accurately the Conciliar Church. That is not enough to make you a Traditional Catholic.
Waiting endlessly for the REAL Traditional Catholic movement to begin, after these 50 years, means that you are NOT a Traditional Catholic. Do you see the blasphemy in this position? Wessex claims that God hasn't risen up ANY means (individuals, small groups, etc.) to help Catholics keep the Faith and raise our children Catholic during this long Crisis in the Church. Wessex basically says to God, "Thanks for nothing!"In the deluded and warped mind of Wessex
, there are no lifeboats, no means to stay afloat even for the fervent souls: men of good will, seeking the truth, putting their Faith first, willing to make sacrifices to keep the Faith. No, even for such fervent souls it's basically hopeless. Like the modern-day Jew still waiting for the "Messiah", they wait and wait, wondering if God is truly faithful to His promises, and becoming more negative and bitter by the day.
I understand that not everyone has the same priorities when dealing with this crisis, and we are all individuals, so there are going to be disagreements, different groups catering to different priorities/positions, etc. That is understandable and I don't have a problem with that.
But anyone who can throw ALL OF THE ABOVE -- the SSPX, FSSP, ICK, SSPV, CMRI, the Resistance, all independent chapels, and every other group within the Traditional Catholic world -- into the dustbin is no Traditional Catholic.
There are plenty of neo-pagans and agnostics that are against the Conciliar Church too -- they aren't Traditional Catholic, but they're against what people think is the Catholic Church today. Same with the Old Catholics. They are against the modern-day Catholic Church too. Shall we invite them to CathInfo or give them an honorary "Traditional Catholic" label, since we both have a common enemy? Of course not!
