Well, what's your thoughts? Has the Roman Church defected? If not, please explain...
I've already explained my thoughts on the matter. What we haven't heard from you is an explanation of your position ... to the point that no one knows what you are, R&R, Resistance, some weird flavor of SV (like those who think we haven't had a pope since St. Pius X), Palmerian, follower of Pope Michael, Novus Ordo, Orthodox, Old Catholic, man or woman?
Obviously the Roman Church and the Catholic Church at large have not defected; they can't defect. Question is how we reconcile this truth with what we're seeing in the Crisis.
And obviously no Catholic believes that the Church has defected, so you're beating a dead horse and wasting everyone's time.
Until you explain what your position on the Crisis is, I'm not going to bother responding to you anymore ... since we're wasting our time trying to infer a position from you. Sure, different groups of Traditional Catholics accuse other groups of having a theology which implies a defection, but until we hear your actual argument, there's nothing more to discuss with you.
