Incredulous, someone did reply to that above post on TIA:
SSPX Does a Good Job
I do not want to stir bitter controversy but I do want to comment.
Concerning the person who comments on leaving SSPX, may I make a comment ?
- The SSPX is a lifeboat in a very rough sea; no-one can imagine that life on the lifeboat will be smooth and well-organized. Times are confusing.
- For many people there is no reasonable alternative; no "indult mass" no other Traditional orders.
- The SSPX & followers helped me: I am a convert and wanted to be Conditionally Baptized; when I asked a number of priests they almost shook with fright and anxiety. An SSPX supporter priest was the only one who would give me this grace. The same was true of our last baby's baptism; again other priests quaked when asked for immediate Old Rite Baptism - undelayed after the birth. SSPX priest did it easily and with no problems. As one Irish friend of mine said "They'll give you the whole package."
- It is easy to criticize the SSPX, but where would we be now without SSPX and Msgr Lefebvre's public witness? They are NOT perfect and in many ways not all right, but they do a good job.

Sorry, but the SSPX is no longer a safe lifeboat
