Militia Jesu, don't worry. I'm not accusing you of mortal sin for staying home from your SSPX chapel. You really don't have to be so defensive
But you honestly didn't do a very good job of refuting or nullifying anything I wrote. Your post was not a very good one. I'm not just saying that because I disagree with you.
You just wrote "something" in response to each sentence. That's not the same as writing a refutation. I don't have time to analyze which particular logical fallacies you used, but you mostly argued against me with arguments I agree with, or arguments that are "neither here nor there"! That is VERY annoying on a forum, as it makes for a very nonsensical debate.
Of course the wolves are after a large group like the SSPX.
Some of your responses were so "out there" I couldn't even figure out what you were getting at.
I agree the SSPX Crisis goes up to the very top. It is not a local crisis. However, there are pockets where things are exactly the same as they were 8 years ago.
It's hard to imagine something different from your own situation (I know; many people are this way. It's human nature, and not your fault) but you'll have to trust me on this one. I (for example) would be quite remiss if I left my SSPX chapel.
And "boiling frog" my butt. When a frog is in a pot of cold water and the heat hasn't even been turned on yet, the frog is quite safe. Maybe the frog can consider hopping out once the cook turns the burner on. It's not like there are a few little changes that have already taken place. We're talking ZERO changes -- so the water is the same temperature as the tap at this point! If the SSPX Crisis were Vatican II, we'd be at the 1962 liturgy
. How many Trads left the "Conciliar Church" in 1962? I certainly wouldn't have.When a person is speechless, and has no substantial retort to offer for a given point which is so obvious and clear, that doesn't mean he won't make a valiant attempt!
I've seen this thousands of times in my life, in a wide variety of venues. Never underestimate human stubbornness. That is what you have done in your post.
Anyhow, this is a thread I started specifically to chronicle any changes happening in the SSPX, particularly after the 2014 Transfers. So your whole "SSPX is a Red Light" post was most off-topic, and has been dealt with appropriately. If you want to start another "Red Light/Yellow Light" debate thread, be my guest.
The same will happen to any other Off Topic posts.
