Fr. Bouchacourt, was the District Superior of the SSPX’s South America District, but has now been promoted to become the District Superior of the more influential District of France (which has a larger number of priests). Here are two examples of his liberalism.

  1. Fr. Christian Bouchacourt recently stated that it “is quite probable … that the personal lives of John XXIII and John Paul II were exemplary.” His words are here: http://sspx.org/en/news-events/news/good-men-perhaps-poor-fathers-3992

    The truth is that it is completely impossible for any Catholic to lead an "exemplary" personal life, when he does what these popes did, even aside from those popes’ greater responsibility for the whole Church. So, e.g., aside from Pope John Paul II's incalculable responsibility for the 1986 Assisi meeting because he was pope, he could never have led an "exemplary" personal life even if he were a private man who attended the Assisi meeting in a merely personal capacity. The same is true of countless other events in the pope's life: e.g., kissing the Koran.

  2. Fr. Christian Bouchacourt, recently stated publicly: “The Jewish people did not commit deicide.” http://www.clarin.com/edicion-impresa/Fraternidad-San-Pio-catolicos-Francisco_0_1039696144.html

    Fr. Bouchacourt’s statement is a conciliar error which contradicts infallible Apostolic Tradition and the continual teaching of the Fathers, Doctors, Popes and other sacred writers. For example, St. Thomas Aquinas taught: “The Jews therefore sinned, as crucifiers not only of the Man-Christ, but also as of God.” (‘et ideo Judaei peccaverunt, non solum hominis Christi, sed tamquam Dei crucifixores.’). Summa Theologica, IIIa, Q.47, a.5 ad3.

    Fr. Bouchacourt’s statement is plainly false for the same reason that Our Lady is the Mother of God, viz., she is the Mother of God because she is the mother (in His humanity) of a Person Who is God. The Jews committed deicide because they killed (in His humanity) a Person Who is God. Thus, the truth now denied by one of the most important leaders of the SSPX, is that the Jews are God-killers – they committed deicide, as the Church has always taught.
