will recuse myself from further SSPX controversies whenever possible, then and just pray for those opposing reunion. Let me know when those stones are available to pillory Fellay with.....
It does seem Fellay is bowing to pressures and too quick to make freinds and make nice with Rome......
that said, I will recuse myself further and pray for Church in general.......hence, no further need to discuss the issue of talks......
thank you for the time you spent in my behalf and the respectful and manly approach, very welcomed :cheers: instead of lashing out :really-mad2: :argue:
Dear Belloc, this is the kind of very concerning behavior that others have noted, i.e. avoiding questions and simply spreading false rhetoric. I am not saying that I know you are intentionally being deceitful but there is a particular pattern of facts that is very troubling:
1). You apply exaggerated rhetoric to describe a simple call to pray for anti-regularization priests.
2). It is reiterated to you that this is not an accurate representation of anyone's position.
3). You are challenged to answer a few simple questions
4). You proceed to not answer them and again use the same rhetoric (pillory Fellay, etc).
This is straight out of the Cass Sunstein handbook of creating cognitive dissonance. I'm not saying you are a government operative (although, who knows?) But, I am saying, for your benefit if you are a traditional Catholic who cares about his eternal salvation, that what you are doing when you come here and inaccurately label our position in an inflammatory way and continue to do so despite being shown that it is inaccurate is, whether you intend to or not, a serious deceit. It is a lie that serves the purpose of making your targets seem over-radicalized and so, marginalized and on the defensive. Again, this is all the exact strategy advocated by Cass Sunstein to neutralize unfavorable opinions in the public.
This is why it would be reasonable to believe that you MAY BE an employed shill for a diocese or Menzingen. But, my guess is that you are simply an indultarian traditional Catholic supporter of regularization. If you are, I again challenge you, answer the questions I posed. If you choose not to, you ought to seriously inspect your soul and think:
"Why am I trying to label people dishonestly? Why do I think the ends justify the means? Would Jesus Christ falsely label people in this way? Would St. Peter refuse to answer these questions?"
I hope you will respond. If you are a traditional Catholic, you don't need to go down this road. You don't need to resort to dishonesty. That is the true Satanic influence afflicting the SSPX. People on the pro-regularization end of things (including Fellay himself) resorting to deceit, entrapment, bullying and all manner of unbecoming behavior to silence and marginalize dissent.
If you believe the pro-regularization answer to the questions I posed is the correct one, then so be it. You have to support what you believe is best for your soul. But, if that is the case, answer that way and support your position with your reasons and arguments. Just don't hide from the questions and fire dishonesty and exaggeration like a hidden sniper.
Please, with God as my Divine Witness, do not think I say any of this with anger or malice. If you are an honest traditional Catholic, I have great compassion for you. For, you have been twisted into a position that cannot be anything but harmful for your soul. Don't let that happen. Let Yes be yes and no be no; be honest and deal honestly with your fellow Catholics. If you and yours continue your pattern of sliding down the Machiavellian ends justify the means road, this whole situation could slide out of control.
