Let's cite the original General House communique in its entirety, explaining the expulsion of Bp. williamson:
Communiqué of the General House of the Society of Saint Pius X (October 24, 2012)
Bishop Richard Williamson, having distanced himself from the management* and the government of the SSPX for several years, and refusing to show due respect and obedience to his lawful superiors, was declared excluded from the SSPX by decision of the Superior General and its Council, on October 4th, 2012. A final deadline had been granted to him to declare his submission, after which he announced the publication of an “open letter” asking the Superior General to resign.
This painful decision has become necessary by concern for the common good of the Society of Saint Pius X and its good government, according to what Archbishop Lefebvre denounced: “This is the destruction of authority. How authority can be exercised if it needs to ask all members to participate in the exercise of authority? “(Ecône, October 3, 1987)
Read the bold type above. Let's be absolutely clear about the reasons submitted for the expulsion of Bp. Williamson in 2012. The earlier communique states unequivocally that 1) the bishop "distanced" himself from SSPX "management." 2)H.E. failed to show proper "respect and obedience," (not to Roman authorities, mind you, but to Fellay & Co.)
Quoting now today's public statement from SSPX headquarters:
Bishop Williamson and Fr. Faure have not been members of the Society of St. Pius X since 2012 and 2014, respectively, because of their violent criticisms of any relations with the Roman authorities. According to them, such contacts were incompatible with the apostolic work of Archbishop Lefebvre.
The dullest member of CI should understand the bait and switch technique employed here. In the first 2012 communique, it was a matter of not showing respect and obedience towards SSPX hierarchy. In this fresh 2015 communique, it is a matter of "violent criticisms" of Roman authorities. So which is it, Bernie? Were these priests expelled for disobedience to you, or to Roman authorities? Were these priests ejected because they did not show proper respect to you, or to Rome?
