Sedevacantist quote from reply #35 "And yes, doctrines are vitally important. And I do agree with them [the Brothers] on doctrinal matters, with the exception of the Birth Control issue, which they are clearly in heresy about."
You condemn NFP [?], and at the same time, you say the Brothers are in heresy concerning NFP? Explain this one!?
Did you actually read the OP? It's hard for me to believe it. You're mutilating everything
I said. This is ridiculous.
I never once condemned the Dimonds for rejecting NFP. I totally agree with them on this issue.
The "Rhythm Method" is not NFP. This method, known as "Continence" during the reign of Pius XI was
approved by the Catholic Church, as he clearly stated:Pius XI, Casti Connubii (# 53), Dec. 31, 1930: “And now, Venerable Brethren, we shall explain in detail the evils opposed to each of the benefits of matrimony. First consideration is due to the offspring, which many have the boldness to call the disagreeable burden of matrimony and which they say is to be carefully avoided by married people not through VIRTUOUS CONTINENCE (WHICH CHRISTIAN LAW PERMITS WHEN BOTH PARTIES CONSENT) but by frustrating the marriage act.”
This is what the Dimonds reject - "Continence".
Their position, that ALL forms of birth control are forbidden, was condemned under anathema as early as the Council of Trent:Council of Trent, Session 24, Dogmatic Canon VIII:"If any one saith, that the Church errs, in that she declares that, for many causes, a separation may take place between husband and wife, in regard of bed, or in regard of cohabitation, for a determinate or for an indeterminate period; let him be anathema."
