There is a definite credibility problem in the eyes of your children if you go along to the SSPX, then resist, then go Sede, the bounce back to the indult and with each step you demonize the last group you left. As much as you dislike Fr. Pfeiffer today, 4-5 years ago you were singing his praises. He was the same man back then with the same inherent faults, they didn't come out of a vacuum. You can delete those old threads from the forum and try to sanitize history, but one cannot fool one's own children and delete their memories. They remember that you were just as committed to Pfeifferville in 2019 as you were to Econe in 2007 or Michael Voris in 2012.
I think this is a MAJOR factor in people not joining one of the various resistances. At least the people I have spoken to who either thought about joining and didn't, or, who joined and then left.
There is a lot to respond to in such a large post, but this is the part that had me fall off my chair.
The problem I have with your argumentation is that you assume a group can't change in a fundamental way. Which leads us to the 1st point I have a problem with. Your unspoken minor is:1. [unspoken minor] If you cease supporting a group/priest, it's because you changed, not the group or priest.
This is manifestly false: The only debate is about HOW OFTEN this is not the case, or in which specific instances this is not the case.
For all the other points, I will take direct quotes from your post:2. "you go along to the SSPX, then resist, then go Sede, the bounce back to the indult"
Not every Trad is this flaky. I'm not talking about changing groups as their understanding of the Crisis and/or the groups themselves change, I'm talking about bouncing around to the left AND the right.3. "and with each step you demonize the last group you left"
This depends on why you left the group you did. If the group/priest went off the rails, or is guilty of some action against Faith or against the fundamentals of the Trad movement, then a certain amount of criticism is called for, within the bounds of truth and Catholic charity of course.4. "As much as you dislike Fr. Pfeiffer today, 4-5 years ago you were singing his praises."
See my response to #1. In the case of Fr. Pfeiffer, he was not the same in 2012 when I (for example) supported him. He was a pioneer, very off-the-cuff, but these were also symptoms of his basic faults (lack of discipline, lack of obedience) which didn't become clear until later -- when he committed clear derelictions against truth and charity: slandering/attacking fellow Resistance priests and bishops, for example. Stubbornly keeping Pablo the apostate in charge of his "seminary". Ambrose Moran. Fr. Tetherow. The list goes on. I didn't support Fr. Pfeiffer for a single day while he worked the above evils. I jumped ship as soon as Fr. Pfeiffer changed or fell from grace.
So speak for yourself on this heading!
I agree with you insofar as parents need to jump ship right away -- as soon as compromises/evils appear -- to be able to maintain credibility or the high ground. If you compromise and hang around too long, THAT is when you become personally guilty of supporting the wrong group/priest.5. "You can delete those old threads from the forum and try to sanitize history"
Sorry, Ggreg, but I'm going to have to fact-check you on this one. What are you talking about? You can't just make stuff up and throw out wild accusations. Some examples, please. Please, tell us what threads I deleted to "sanitize history". The FACTS are that I left all the threads related to the Resistance from the earliest days up to the present. If a person wanted to write a book on the movement, they would find CathInfo a great resource. Except for clear cases of slander, etc. I kept to my usual hands-off moderation policy. For example, I left all the threads where I supported or promoted Fr. Pfeiffer, because they also have a timestamp on them. People can do the math.6. "They remember that you were just as committed to Pfeifferville in 2019"
See my response to #4. Anyone supporting Pfeifferville in 2019 despite all the things Fr. Pfeiffer has done -- in the public domain and documented for all to see -- is a lost cause. I think you're exaggerating which you tend to do. More likely, many people supported Fr. Pfeiffer in 2012-2014, and by then most Catholics of good will got off the Pfeiffer train.
