  • Anybody else have problems with the sorry excuses for moderators on Fisheaters, the pseudo-Traditionalist site? The moderators of the site could care less when members of the forum break their own rules by bashing sedevacantism. However, (when they finally decide to do some moderating after-all) they bann everyone who is not a Ratzinger worshipper!

  • Fisheaters has had "problems" for some time. Many CathInfo members used to frequent that forum many months ago, so some of you know what I'm talking about.

    It's certainly a different place now. Virtually ALL of the old "regulars" (from, say, the summer of 2006) have quit/left/been banned and moved on to other fora.

    It was all downhill when the owner and one of the mods decided to get civilly married, despite the fact that they both were married and would need annulment(s) before they could proceed in a morally correct fashion.

    It was discussed here, in what was probably the longest thread EVER on Cathinfo --
    http://www.cathinfo.com/bb/index.php?a=topic&t=2557

    Apparently the owner isn't even posting on her own board anymore these days.

    The times, how they change!

  • What the present situation at FE is I do not know. Before I was banned, it seemed as if  more people there  had a genuine knowledge of Church History.
    There Is No Such Thing As 'Sede Vacantism'...
    nor is there such thing as a 'Feeneyite' or 'Feeneyism'

  • The site owner and many of the mods also justified many perverse sexual practices under the rubric that -- let's just say sodomy -- are ok if the idividual is married and finishes the act in the natural way with thier spouse. The above posts seem to be indicitive of a warning that people should stay away from that site.

    Fr Heribert Jone's "Moral Theology" does give that impression.

  • That would seem to indicate to me that one should flee in horror from Father Jones Moral Theology book. It would be diabolical to assume that one could commit the above acts with ones spouse and then go receive communion and that is exactly what they tried to justify.

    Fr Jone's "Moral Theology" is used by the SSPX and it is thoroughly pre-V2.

  • Their are many pre-vat 2 books in english that had hints of modernism in them. Vat-2 did not happen overnight. The rot had set in for many hundreds of years prior to it.

    Yes, but Fr Jone's book isn't one, or else TAN wouldn't be stocking it, and the SSPX wouldn't be making use of it.

  • Although I do not wish to speak of details, so long as the marital act is not brought to completion in an unnatural manner, it is not considered a sin - on that account.  I say "on that account" because there could be other sins involved when one is following the spirit of the flesh.  Indeed, one could always proceed "lawfully", yet sin habitually through excessive attachment to the acts and pleasures involved.  Analogously, eating is necessary and lawful; excessive, unnecessary eating, for mere pleasure, is gluttony.

  • We are going to have to agree to disagree. If you and Father Jones think that it is permissable to commit acts of sodomy with your wife and them go to mass right after without fear of mortal sin, then that is fine with me.

  • I do not wish to discuss it further, as it is a delicate matter.  Suffice it to say Fr. Jone is not alone in this assessment.  God speed.

  • The opinions of Augustine and Liguouri on what constitutes Venial Sin in the performance of the Marriage Act are well known.

    It is difficult to see how Jone does justice to those venerable opinions in his treatment of what is permissible and prohibited in this area.

    Yes, it is a delicate issue.

    But that's no answer to a valid question.

    What's this all about, anyway?

    Pre-Vatican II moral theologians with fine reputations scandalizing the post-Vatican II remnant flock?

    Jone could rightly be accused of representing the very devil of all that was wrong with moral theologizing before Romanist moral theologians rediscovered Jesus Christ and Human Dignity somewhere in the 1940s and 1950s.

    In a sense, Jone was a fraud and a hack, parading around as a disciple of the Galilean and the Umbrian.

    He was a lazy Aristotelian slob.

    "Here, boys! Here's the nuts-and-bolts logic of it all and now you go wash it in the blood of the Lamb if you can! Good luck and Ave, um, Maria!"

    Thus far Father Jone. In my opinion.

    But having said that....

    Laymen should be very, very slow to think that there could be something so VERY wrong with the opinions of a moral theologian who was a big noise in the days of Pope Pius XII. The fact that Jone's work was permitted means that it cannot be along the lines of, say, Chuckie Curran's.

    Is Father Jone wrong on the point at issue?

    It would be false to say that he COULD not be wrong on this point.

    That's the kind of point on which "trained clerics" are not often honest when they give pious ruffled-feather lectures about how much laymen don't know and can never know etc... etc...

    And that very clericalistic dishonesty is part of the system in which the Jones of this world were operating.

    Jone COULD be wrong. Jone COULD have gone too far and allowed a certain laxism to creep into his high and mighty opinionating.

    Which means that he could also be a bit of a sicko.

    But we have to allow that the point is debatable. It's just not Catholic reality to pretend that it isn't. If you don't get the moral logic of the issue and don't see how Jone COULD be right you really should keep away from all moral theology textbooks.

    They're the pits. Always. Because the human heart is. The pits.

    The antidote is the Spotless Lamb.

    "Be ye perfect... From within him will come Living Water..."
