I am always disappointed when I read or hear from the media about a subject that I am familiar with. It causes me to wonder why I bother to read about stuff I do not know about. I am most likely to get the wrong story. Williamson did not deny the holocaust but stated that the number of Jews killed were exaggerated.

How could SSPX be a “splinter” group when as you yourself note in the article they are the ones who refused to go along with the changes brought on by Vatican II. How can you be a splinter group by refusing to splinter off, i.e. veer from traditional practices? Doesn’t that make Rome the splinter group?

Also your mention of SSPX opposition to dialogue “particularly with the Jews” demonstrates a breathtaking superficiality in understanding the nature of the SSPX opposition to Vatican II changes and strongly suggests a cheap attempt at back-handed accusations of anti-Semitism against the group. Bad form, author. Get your facts straight.

This PC culture of ours will dilute the purity of Catholicism. The LAtin MAss should be the de facto Mass for the Chruch.

If Roman Catholic’s who adhere to guidance of many a previous pontiff are going to be regarding as “ultra-traditionalist”, then the “mainstream” catholics need be regarding as “ultra-liberal” and out of touch with Roman Catholic dogmas and many encyclicals of previous popes’.
