With all due respect, Joe, I understand exactly where you're coming from, but must disagree. Even canon law - at least the 1917 code - made it clear that when there was doubt about a sacrament, validity is always to be presumed and the doubt removed. It is for this reason only that I give +Buckley the benefit of the doubt, and thus refer to him as "bishop." Considering the first-hand experience and knowledge I have of Ryan and his little cult following, my conscience won't let me do the same for Ryan, viz. give him the benefit of the doubt. It's very likely that Ryan's reputation, or lack of in this case, may be what has caused Bp. Buckley to "disappear," and why AMDGJMJ cannot find him.
In addition to being aware of Ryan's alleged Lutheran past from Bp. McKenna's renouncement/denouncement, I know there also used to be an anti-Ryan site that posted a Catholic (i.e. modern V-2) "profession of faith" document (really an altered baptimsal cert.). This kind of document could be a game-changer. At any rate, I think it is safe to say that no prelate in their right mind will touch this man (Ryan) with a 10-foot pole, so the doubt will remain and people will hopefully avoid him and not support his "new monastery" in any manner.
