about the mother of Father Cohen:
"Can you explain
WHAT is your point of favouring Jews at the moment?
At least have the decency
to be true to yourselves and spit it out:
You are NOT followers of Christ,
but Anti-Christ Jews."
Now I understand that perhaps the comentator thought
that I was making a veiled reference
to Bishop Williamson's recent blog post.
No. I didn't know of the post at that time.
This is not the Gospel
but a strategy under cover of Gospel.
But now, having come to know about the article
and knowing that other traditional Catholics
expect to hear from us about it,
I make the following personal response;
my own take on the matter:
I was very sorry to read the article.
We are all further hurt or tarnished or tarred by it:
The Jewish people are hurt,
the Church in general is tarnished,
and traditional Catholics
and most of the SSPX faithful
The Williamson article is political.
It is an aggressive strategy.
Its objective is to sow trouble
between the SSPX and the Church, and
between the Church and the Jewish people.
It works well.
Williamson can cause great trouble
only because he is a bishop;
he is an illegitimate bishop
who will not submit himself to legitimate authority.
The SSPX leadership would probably like to expel him
but fear that he would begin his own group here in the UK
SSPX clergy do not speak out publicly against Bishop Williamson
nor against the Menzingen Authorities
for doing nothing that will effectively stop him.
The situation is extraordinary.
The SSPX cannot control their man
who is harming the Church and their own group.
Now is the time
when the helpless SSPX Superior General
who lacks jurisdiction,
and knows he lacks the necessary jurisdiction over his equal,
should ask the Holy Father to defrock the illegitimate bishop;
in the kindest possible way.
