  • ...are just the product of professional brainwashing.

    I'm going to give some accordistas (including a couple members here) the benefit of the doubt, that they're simply less able than others to resist a professional brainwashing campaign. It takes a lot of effort to resist brainwashing; it's much easier to resist when you already recognize it for what it is (brainwashing).

    For example, how many times have Menzingen's allies said, "Pray, wait and see. The agreement will be made public when it's ready." etc.

    They've also repeated countless times, "Don't discuss it on the Internet. If you want the truth, come to us. You won't find any truth if you DO go to the Internet for your SSPX-Rome news. Any talk against the SSPX leadership is schismatic and is the result of a poor spiritual life. They certainly don't have logic and reason on their side; they are a bunch of emoting hysterical women. Oh, and that reminds me, those hard-liners resort to name calling, too! And that is very uncharitable."

    These are some of the sentiments echoed by a few members here.

    It's as if these members believe they should follow their SSPX preists on these matters. Remember, we're talking about priests. Some people are very sensitive when it comes to such things. They don't really know what to do when some priests say one thing, and other priests say something else. I suppose in that case, they go with the priest they know.

    My first impression of this is, they left out something really important.
    That is, the agreement will be "ready" first, then the deal would be made second, and third, the agreement will be made public -- AFTER IT IS ALREADY MADE.

    In other words, when you see "when it's ready," you should understand that "ready" means irrevocable, accomplished, and DONE.

  • Yes, deals and elections are done and won today before opinion is formed and votes are counted. People are told what is going to happen before they participate! The consultation process is for appearance sake. Once a thing is done, it cannot be undone.

    It's dishonesty that is characteristic of a cult.  Some of these characters have become very accustomed to playing the role of bully.  They've gotten very used to being patronizing and deceitful, and to threaten anyone who doesn't play along.  The last thing they are concerned with is the truth.

  • Really, it's the patronizing bad faith that tells you who puts Opus Fellay cult loyalty above the Faith.

  • There are essentially two kids of "accordistas". The "wait and see" accordistas, and what I like to call "the Regularizers".

    Fellay supporters of the "wait and see" variety are people who would leave if Fellay were to sell out, but would support a deal all the way if they felt it was a "good deal". The problem is, a deal which requires the Society to forfeit their long-lasting opposition to Vatican II and modernism, which was one of the primary reasons for their existance to begin with, cannot possibly be a "good deal". This type of Fellay supporters is generally tolerable, but they are still mistaken on several key points.

    Then you have the "regularizers". These people really don't believe in the term "sell-out", they just want the Society to "regularize" with Rome. These people are generally your FSSP-type Trads.

    The core of the matter, however, is that a "reconciliation" with Rome would ultimately be destructive to the Society of St. Pius X.

    I think most of them would just say to "wait and see" if he "really" sold out.

    That is, they don't want to rock the boat.  Subconsciously many of them are keen on feeling a greater sense of acceptance among Catholics and in the world.  The possibility of the SSPX liberalizing, so long as it "doesn't go too far" - is something most look with favor on.

    Yes, probably so.

    I actually meant to put they CLAIM they will leave if Fellay sells out. But even if Fellay plainly sold out, how many of them would admit it or even realize it? Not very many, I would imagine.

    It sounds like Fr Rostand did a really good job of it in St Mary's.

    Someone mentioned Bishop Fellay's change towards V2 using his own quotes and the response was "That's what Fr Rostand warned us about--people on the internet reading articles that are not the full truth!"  :facepalm: That "article" was Bishop Fellay's own interview but ... ok. Not much more to say. You can't get hostile over it because we all think we're doing what's right, so let's talk about the weather lol.

  • Menzingen has no one to blame but itself for the firestorm of speculation and discussion on the Internet. The entire situation could have been avoided had they been more forthcoming. Instead, they've chosen to operate a Pravda-style publicity campaign to keep all of us guessing as to their true intentions.  :read-paper:

    Catholics have a strong natural interest in this story -- after all, our souls are at stake!

    The poor judgment demonstrated by +Fellay and Co. on the PR front makes me even more fearful of the kind of agreement they've "negotiated" with Rome.

    I think Father Pfeiffer mentioned something about this in his sermon.  He said something like, they had to keep it a secret for as long as they have or they knew they would have a rebellion on their hands.

    So it seems the secrecy is deliberate.  What times we live in. Makes me weary of trusting anyone anymore.
    I am not sure if I'm more mad or hurt by all these shenanigans.

    This is precisely why we must try and remember to ultimately only place our trust in the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts!  But believe me I understand what you're saying KyrieEleison, from our human point of view I would guess many of us are feeling the same as you.  I know speaking for meself I feel mad and hurt all at the same time.  I pray daily for you and all of us in these confusing, frustrating, and uncertain times. May we find shelter and consolation in Their Hearts!

    Yes, it would seem Fr. would say the secrecy is deliberate, for he says that they
    avoided heresy until the last two weeks...

    From my transcription on the other thread:

    Quote
    ...It was a confusion, a deception to soften the hearts and to
    weaken the will of Catholics defending the Faith.

    And then doctrinal talks. Now we're going to make a deal.

    After the doctrinal talks, it was declared:

    "Rome has not changed its position.
    Rome's still accused of Modernism.
    Rome is still rejecting the Faith.
    The Society is still holding the Faith.
    Nothing has changed,"
    so said Bishop Fellay.

    And now, it's changed. Now we're going to make a deal.
    Now we're going to be accepted and regularized.

    Now we're going to receive a personal prelature.
    And all the documents are secret.
    And all the communications are secret.
    And all of the going back and forth is secret.
    You don't keep truth a secret.

    You don't keep truth a secret, but you do keep lies a secret. You do
    keep evil a secret. And you keep deception a secret. That's why all the
    secrecy of the last several years, because if Bishop Fellay, Father Fulger,
    and Father Nely,
    the superiors of the Society of St. Pius X stood up boldly, told us the truth,
    everyone would have rebelled.
    And so they said, have confidence.
    You're just foolish, stupid, idiotic, moronic sheep, and your job is
    to never think, only pay, pray and obey.

    You don't need to know your faith. You need to have confidence in your
    holy superior. You don't need to know what he's doing with your faith.
    There are secret communications. What are these communications about?
    They are about the faith.

    And the faith was not meant to be placed under a bushel, so said
    Jesus Christ, but upon the candlestand. The faith is meant to be publicly
    professed and publicly confessed, and to unto the time of death.

    Now, they avoided heresy, they avoided heretical statements until
    the last 2 weeks
    . Now the deal is almost done. The betrayal is almost complete...
