Eight years ago something called the “Arab Spring” took place in the Middle East. Western media outlets reported to their blue-pilled viewers that “grassroots” uprisings of “oppressed peoples” were finally throwing off “the chains” of their “dictators” and, in the old American way, were transforming their “corrupt” countries into lands of liberty where government would be of, by and for the people.
The reality? Western imperialists clandestinely funneled millions of dollars to twenty-something rabble rousers to stir up anti-establishment sentiments so to cause as much chaos as possible in order to lead a coup against their nation’s leaders, many of whom were long-time allies of the United States.
I make mention of this historical incident not to suggest that dissent from SSPX leadership is funded by insidious actors. What I am saying is that in a very real way, some lay SSPX faithful do seem to be waking up to the bogus arguments put forth by their superiors. In other words, there are signs, ever so slight, that some SSPX’ers have not yet turned off their critical thinking skills completely.
Exhibit A: The Remnant Newspaper, perhaps the only Traditional publication willing to ask tough questions of the SSPX anymore (something Catholic Family News will never do, especially under the leadership of sycophant Brian McCall), published an essay by a lay SSPX woman wondering, quite reasonably, why the Society has been so muted regarding the massive sex abuse scandal currently rocking the Conciliar Church.
After applying a scalpel to the Society’s “news” article on Archbishop Vigano’s allegations, Ms. Katie Reiser expresses her dissatisfaction. “I sincerely hope to hear more from the Society in the future” regarding Archbishop Vigano. They have “neglected to mention” him in their reporting. They have also failed to substantially follow up on the “further developments” of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report.
She then wonders, quite rightly, “What does the Society think of…Archbishop Viganò’s Testimony and the implication of members of the hierarchy, up to and including Pope Francis, in a massive coverup scandal?”
Bravo Ms. Reiser! Keep asking questions! These are the sort of inquiries that drove Catholics in the 1970s and 80s into the Archbishop’s lifeboat. But consider yourself warned. If you keep this up you will at some point be told you are a Resistor! Don’t let it deter you! Truth is truth, wherever it is found.
Pray God sends his graces to Ms. Reiser and those souls in the Society who have not yet been completely lobotomized by their leaders.
