I like what you are doing here lately.
Your recent banishments, thread deletions, and protections for R&R are all positive developments to reclaim the identity of this forum.
Just to point out, so there's no confusion --
I'm not going to get out a virtual Bible and make each member swear before God that they believe the man Francis Bergoglio is Pope Francis, and the current Catholic pope.
I'm not going to ban all "sedevacantists, sedeprivationists, sede-etcetera, and those who push tolerance for the same" or however you put it. I don't think that is either wise or necessary.
The APOSTLES or SOLDIERS of sedevacantism, yes. If they are here to fight the sedevacantist cause, recruit, call R&R a heresy, etc. then I really can't put up with that. It makes for a very hostile environment for those choosing the old SSPX/Resistance/R&R position. You can discuss the position, say why you prefer it, talk about the pros and cons of the various Trad positions.
The fact is that Trads have a lot more in common (98%?) compared to the few issues that divide us. I wish we'd focus on that more. I once argued with a sedevacantist about 10 years ago about this very topic. He admitted that my wife and I wouldn't have to change ANYTHING if we "converted" to Sedevacantism. We'd just "have the truth" as the sedevacantist put it.
That tells me that, logically, sedevacantists SHOULD be able to participate on CathInfo, on just about every other topic! There have to be sedevacantists who aren't obsessed with the Pope question. I'm not giving up on this (not to mention, I believe I have found several of these sedevacantists in question: the current CI members in good standing who identify as sede
But when a person starts literally condemning to Hell those who disagree with them on the Crisis (R&R adherents for example), how is that any different from the Dimond Brothers modus operandi
? Or how is it different from the various dogmatic Sedevacantists who I've banned over the years?
But you can't argue with results. You can click anywhere you want on CathInfo (except perhaps if you look at posts deep in the past) and you're not going to find people calling R&R a heresy. That is not an accident.
