is a complete disaster! It erodes Catholic teaching on marriage,
attacks the natural law, and teaches many heresies.1
Yet Bishop Fellay praises this evil document, falsely saying it
contains many things that are correct and beautiful.2
More recently, the “new” SSPX said that many things in Amoris Lætitia appear to contradict prior Catholic teaching. Here are the “new” SSPX’s words:
AL [Amoris Lætitia] itself contains numerous passages which appear on their face to be in conflict with prior Catholic teaching.3
There are two grave evils in the “new” SSPX’s statement:
The “new” SSPX does not want to offend the conciliar church’s hierarchy, from which the “new” SSPX seeks recognition. Thus, the “new” SSPX does not say Amoris Lætitia is heretical (nor even that it appears to be heretical), but rather that Amoris Lætitia appears to conflict with “prior Catholic teaching”.
The conciliar church largely is not offended by saying that its teaching conflicts with “prior Catholic teaching” because the conciliar church considers many prior teachings as outdated and no longer applicable.4
In its recent comments, the “new” SSPX states that the problem with Amoris Lætitia and “certain documents” of Vatican II may not be solely an incorrect interpretation of the documents. Here are the “new” SSPX’s words:
[T]he problem with AL and certain documents of Vatican II may not be hermeneutical, but substantive. That is to say, it may not be the interpretation of these documents which is solely responsible for certain problems in the Church but rather the documents themselves.5
In this statement, the “new” SSPX betrays the Catholic Faith in three ways:
Further, the cowardly “new” SSPX refuses to make the obvious connection that Amoris Lætitia was designed to do what it is doing. Pope Francis wrote Amoris Lætitia and approves the institutionalized sacrileges and other evil changes which implement it, which reject the Catholic Faith, and which attack Traditional Catholic practice.
The weak-kneed “new” SSPX states that it is an “unsettling fact” that Pope Francis implements the (evil) Amoris Lætitia “on the basis of what AL appears to teach”. Here are the “new” SSPX’s words:
[Cardinal Müller] does not confront directly the unsettling fact that Pope Francis, along with several bishops’ conferences around the world, have pushed forward the possibility of granting Communion to the divorced and remarried on the basis of what AL appears to teach.7
A real soldier of Christ fights the enemy head-on! Amoris Lætitia and all Vatican II documents are the enemies’ tools to deliberately corrupt the human element of the Catholic Church.8 Only cowards like the “new” SSPX wring their hands about “unsettling facts”, without strongly condemning the insidious evil of Amoris Lætitia, and its author’s (i.e., Pope Francis’s) implementation of that evil!
The wimpy “new” SSPX merely says it might have been better to denounce certain passages, if not the whole document. Here are the “new” SSPX’s words:
It would have arguably been better for Cardinal Müller to have denounced those passages in AL (if not the exhortation as a whole).9
A real soldier of Christ has complete contempt for these weasel-words when the Catholic Faith and the salvation of souls is at stake! A real soldier of Christ does not say it is “arguably better” if there were some limited denunciation of part of this thoroughly poisonous document! The “new” SSPX’s contemptibly weak statement is like the (following) feeble statement that could be made against abortion:
It would be arguably better to condemn certain types of abortion, (if not all abortions).
It is Cardinal Müller’s duty (as well as the SSPX’s duty) to utterly condemn this evil document (viz., Amoris Lætitia)! It is no surprise that Cardinal Müller and the “new” SSPX completely fail to protect the Catholic Faith. Cardinal Müller is not a true protector of the Catholic Faith any more than the “new” SSPX is a true voice of Catholic Tradition.
Life is short and they will soon be Judged. Let us pray they convert while they still have time.
