Via CMR I found this about the SSPX and their equivalent of the “crazy-uncle in the attic” Bp. Williamson.
Bishop McCrazy Says He Wants Bp. Fellay Out
Bishop Williamson of the SSPX, a guy who makes the Moony marrying Bishop Milingo look like Spock, is speaking out against Bishop Fellay. He wants him out, no surprise there.
The SSPX need to throw Williamson out permanently and completely. [A touch of Donatism?] I firmly believe that God has appointed Bishop Fellay to restore the SSPX to the Church and maybe a little vice versa. When that happens, Williamson will do as much damage as he can. Whatever damage he does, he must do it as an outsider.
If he is still of the SSPX, no matter any sanctions imposed, he will drag the SSPX and the Church down with his self-centered lunatic ravings and behavior.
Forget Fellay being out, Fellay must kick Williamson out. Do it. Do it now.
I don’t know how the SSPX handles matters like this. Does the Superior have that authority from his office? The SSPX is a priestly “fraternity”: can they just, should they just, chuck men out?
I am sympathetic to CMR‘s concerns. Even the human body cuts off blood to limbs to save the core.
Do you throw your brother out?
From Matthew 18:
But if thy brother shall offend against thee, go, and rebuke him between thee and him alone. If he shall hear thee, thou shalt gain thy brother. And if he will not hear thee, take with thee one or two more: that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may stand. And if he will not hear them: tell the church. And if he will not hear the church, let him be to thee as the heathen and publican.
