Thanks for your comment, Spiritus and Darcy.
My last real involvement here a few days ago was defending the V2 popes from claims of heresy, saying the actions addressed failed to show that. Many of the things, like JPII's kissing the Koran, are simply stupid, bonehead moves undertaken in the name of peace or whatever, and indeed are of the order of St. Peter's improvidence and stupid conduct with the Jews at Antioch.
But then there's this stuff, this teaching on issues of the faith, such as this statement of JPII, and of course we could bring up others.
If the sedes are right, they are right for the wrong reasons. The potential heresy in my view is this failure of the Magisterium on EENS, and this goes back to before V2, and is suggested in things like the Holy Office Letter of 1949, which appears nonetheless to be able to be read with an orthodox understanding. Of course, after V2, the wheels came off, and any heresy brewing erupted into the full-blown thing.
I told Hobble I have an open mind on the sede question, and indeed I do. Though the door is closing . . .
