Well, fitz, to which spiritual authority do you subscribe? I have trouble determining where true spiritual authority lies these days. I would say that many of us are not publicly acknowledging this, because we're not quite certain in the midst of all the confusion. Perhaps you can enlighten us.
I subscribe to Eastern Orthodoxy; however, I have recently begun to reconsider my position after learning about Donatism, which one of my Novus Ordo Twitter followers alerted me to. It's been an interesting journey, because I soon learned, upon entering Eastern Orthdoxy, that it is a Church plagued with the same problems as the Roman Catholic Church, namely Judeo-masonic-communist subversion.
How does one stay true to the faith without schisming? Even Eastern Orthodoxy has its traditionalist schismatic branches, just like RCC. All interesting but a difficult question to answer.
