I do wish we could all unite and not align ourselves for God rather than against others. Though to be for God you have to be against many actions of others. I also wish nobody ever did anything wrong and thus need to be stood up against. I do wish issues could be settled behind the scenes. But I admire those who bring grave evils to light in order to prevent them in the future. Cowardly weasels need to be called out. The clergy must be held accountable. The sedevacantist editors that I know such as Mike Cain who has avoided the issue of Ramolla and Pivuranus, and has not blackballed Father and Tom, but rather promotes both Tom and Kathleen Plumb, is an editor of integrity as is Tom Droleskey who has given both sides of story. You will notice that Tom, instead of judging others harshly, gives them the benefit of the doubt as he did Bishop Petko. He does not relish having to speak an unpopular truth that will cost him friends and money. Despite not being 100% correct on an issue he could not have known about he never compromises the truth as he knows it. He admits when he is wrong in grand style and apologizes when he realizes has done wrong. Mike Cain of Daily Catholic has the same qualities to the same degree. Others, whether it be certain Bishops, who cannot take legitimate criticism, or an editor of a paper, while good in many ways lack in intellectual honesty and in integrity when the uncompromised truth will cost “too much”. Father Ramolla is a courageous and as a rock solid Priest as there is living today. His sermons should be listened to on the traditional Catholic sermons website. He is worthy of the support of all true Catholics as he has saved his parishioners from the cult of Dolan/Cekeda and does not use the Sacraments as a weapon as Dolan/Cekeda do and does not forbid his parishioners to read The Four Marks as they do. He has financial transparency at his parish which is overseen by a lay board and consciously avoids all the mistakes and evils that Dolan/Cekeda have entrenched themselves in.
I will say that it is important not to cut anyone down to size unless you have the facts. What is hidden now will be shouted from the rooftops. All will be revealed on the last day. I have learned that you cannot, and should not, put your hope in any living human being, apart from the canonized saints and those you know to have been baptized and died below the age of reason. Being victimized for the sake of truth is an honor, it is an opportunity to gain merit, but also an opportunity to tear apart your "opponent" not to avoid scandal and to set the record strait, but for the sake of wounding the other. The motives must always be pure. Why am I doing or saying this? For notoriety? To undermine someone who has hurt me? To prevent others from being misled? To protect the reputation of another? To set the record strait so others can act according to fact rather than fiction. The motives can be so mixed. But the primary motive must be a good one, and sometimes you need a spiritual director to figure out what the best thing to do is. And the advice a good spiritual director will give is “when in doubt, shut up”. I wish I had this advice in the past. And I hope not regret not following it in the future. I do believe prayer; often times can be more expedient than blogging. I don't say this self-righteously, as I do not pray as I should.
Elizabeth, did you read my personal message on the topic. The facts in this blog on this particular topic are not as they appear.
