1. Watch your language on this Catholic forum.
2. I have a specific rule about membership which requires that you accept ALL COUNCILS BEFORE VATICAN II as Catholic and infallibly binding. The Holy Ghost was invoked at all ecumenical councils BEFORE Vatican II. That is why they are infallible, and why we must accept them.
CathInfo is not a "catch-all malcontent forum" for protestants, Old Catholics, schismatics, etc. who say the crisis started 100, 300, 500, or 1000 years ago.
CathInfo is specifically for "Traditional Catholics".
A Traditional Catholic is defined as: A Catholic keeping his (or her) Faith during the Crisis in the Church which began (at least externally) with Vatican II. Before Vatican II, one could attend his local parish, send his kids to Catholic school, etc. without scruple.
Those who say the Crisis began with Trent, or St. Thomas, or any other such rubbish is reminiscent of the Dimond Brothers, is founded on ignorance, and is a recipe for dogmatic home-alone-ism which is the one kind of Catholic that is NOT welcome here.
Who is welcome here? Catholics that attend the Indult, diocesan, FSSP, Institute of Christ the King, SSPX, SSPX Resistance, SSPV, CMRI, independent, and any other group I left out.
Who is not welcome? Old Catholics, those who think there are no valid priests left, those who think the # of Catholics left is in the low hundreds, those who think no priest has jurisdiction for confession, or any other extreme position. Those who think that EVERYONE must stay home, on principle or dogma, are "dogmatic home aloners" and must leave CathInfo.
