The problem is that people actually listen to the SSPX try to “unpack” it. I remember Fr Rostand's article of “its more traditional then the May 5 declaration that the Archbishop signed!” “Bp Tissier wrote up the May 5 declaration, and no one calls him a modernist!” “Everything from V2 that he quotes is in line with tradition!” And on and on. They ignore WHY the Archbishop redrew his signature completely (“its only because they wouldn’t give him a Bishop!”) and brush it under the rug because “the document was withdraw” and “he never signed it”. If another man wrote a love letter to my wife, it doesn’t make it ok that he didn’t sign it!
Also interesting that the AFD follows the Burke’s and Schneider’s line on V2 - it must be understood in line with tradition! Not what the Archbishop said, where there are ambiguities, they must be understood as in line with tradition, and what is wrong must be done away with and rejected.
