Crisis in the Church / Re: Robert Siscoe Article in 1 Pet 5: the one doctrine that proves Francis is Pope.« Last post by Ladislaus on Today at 10:04:34 AM »
Absolutely agree. And looking back at Church history, did the Church ever retroactively say that the 90% of bishops who were arian had lost their offices or weren't real bishops? No. Why not? My opinion is that it's not necessary. The prudent course of action is to simply separate yourself from the quasi-heretic until the Church deals with it.
Absolutely. We are in complete agreement here. That's why I said that I like Father Chazal's "quarantine" term or lean sedeprivationist. Sedeprivationism holds that they remain materially in office until the Church officially disposes otherwise. In the meantime, they do not formally exercise any authority over us due to their heresy. Sedeprivationism lines up exactly with what you're saying. What's the alternative? To hold our own lay conclave and elect Pope Michael I?
