Does anyone think it is possible that the sspx has hired out its computer/internet apostolate to an outside company similar to how it hired a company to re brand it? And, that this could be a mistake or even sabotage on their part? I mean their website is quite high tech. I think that is exactly what you do Matthew. So, I guess you would be a good one to answer how easy/hard it would be to manage a website like theirs, and if it is reasonable.
Matthew said the previous headmaster had no knowledge of this. And, they took this one down again(don't forget, that is a good thing). I am not at all at the point of thinking the sspx wants to embrace these teachings. This sexual behavior stuff is not a two steps forward one steps back thing, it is way more and out of place.
It is possible but I don't know how probable. Usually people only build onto your website what you ask them to. It could be that someone is messing with them, in which case you'd hope they fired that person/company the last
time it happened, so the chances of it happening again
with a new company would be incredibly small. Maybe this policy is so popular in the UK that it's automatically built into every school website and the SSPX just didn't take the time to read it all. But there again you have to ask why it has happened twice
I agree with you and don't believe the SSPX wants to embrace these things either. (I can't speak for individual priests, I've been shocked to hear some of their advice in sexual matters before, so God only knows; but as a whole I do not believe they are there.) But it is possible that this is another attempt to fit in, given their desperate desire to be accepted and seen as mainstream lately. Having this posted in spite of disagreeing with it could have been rationalized in the same vein as many of the other changes. It's external, it's a necessity, it's a lesser evil than being closed, it's posted but isn't what is actually taught etc... I have no idea what they are thinking really. It'd be a lot easier to believe it was an oversight if it weren't reoccurring.
And good point, miserere nobis
, removing the material online doesn't necessarily mean the policy itself has been removed.
No wonder they are so hot under the collar to make sure we keep our heads down and don't look at what's happening in other parishes. Problem is, like the VII changes, what is happening in another parish is often what's coming your way in the next 5, 10, 20 years, so we do have to pay a certain amount of attention.
