Who cares what "Pope" Michael thinks.
I care what he thinks. I find him interesting. I wonder if he ever has doubts about his "papacy."
Thanks for posting this Matto. I think I like him better than Fellay!
Sorry! I've just looked at his stuff on the web. I withdraw my comment!
This guy is no dummy. His video provides a laboratory demonstration of self-interpreting Tradition to custom-design one's own post-Vatican II traditionalist position (PV2TP)
. His action parallels the protestants' self-interpretation of the bible when custom designing their own denominations.
Michael's position is arguable, just like most of the other PV2TP's. Traffic on trad forums largely consists of such argumentation. Typically, each of the more thoughtful trads to develops his own unique PV2TP.
The protestant denomination development process ensures diverse conflicting doctrines, as the PV2TP development process also results in diversity.
It is mistaken to hold out one's own or one's groups' PV2TP as a test of Catholic orthodoxy. Instead, the sole measure should consist of pre-Vatican II orthodoxy, but with the current status of papal office consigned as a paradox for the duration of the crisis.
I think it is schismatic for Catholics to divide from others who share pre-Vatican II orthodoxy, but I do not hold this opinion out as a test of Catholic orthodoxy.
