The vacant throne
« on: February 23, 2009, 01:00:53 PM »
This site has off and on been one of my favorites:

http://www.traditioninaction.org/

It's a clearinghouse for sedevacantist Catholics---Catholics who believe that the Second Vatican Council made the Catholic Church too liberal and that BenoĆ®t XVI is a feminist reformer.  They are theocrats in a manner that even Bill Donohue is not.  I love looking-glass views of the world and their site is chock-full of 'em, oh boy.  The writing style, everything, it's amazing.  They want to bring back a Catholic King who will establish the "Reign of Mary" and ban heretics and everything.

I was incorrect.  They are not sedevacantists.  They instead believe that a Pope can be in error and even that apostolic succession can proceed from an erroneous Pope.  (But they're not willing to extend this courtesy to Orthodox Patriarchs, who also generally have as valid apostolic successions as the Roman papacy.  They are also not willing to call the Orthodox, Orthodox.  "Schismatics," heh heh.  Needless to say, Anglicans---female archbishops!!!---and Luther-descended Protestants are not even Christians according to them.)  Sedevacantists believe that a Pope that is seriously in error is not anymore a Pope.

It tickles me that this thread title was right underneath the one about toilet papers on TAT.  I am a simple man, easily amused.
The pleasures of the table are for every man, of every land, and no matter what place in history or society; they can be a part of all his other pleasures, and they last the longest, to console him when he has outlived the rest.
