Dead on Arrival: True or False Pope

IN JANUARY 2016, the Society of St. Pius X published a 700-page book touted as the definitive refutation of sedevacantism and the ultimate vindication of the “recognize-and-resist” (R&R) position, John Salza and Robert Siscoe’s True or False Pope. When it first appeared, I thought it would merit a series of videos that would allow me to […]

Marcel Lefebvre: Sedevacantist

Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre made many statements that support sedevacantism, the theological position held by Catholic traditionalists who believe that the Vatican II popes were not true popes, due to public heresy.

If I Were Not a Sedevacantist…

The point: If you insist Bergoglio’s a real pope, you’ve got to treat him like one! Give him something to worry about! Support our internet apostolate!

The Tribal Myth-Keepers: Salza and Siscoe on Sedevacantism

IN THE FIRST four days of 2016, my video Why Do Traditionalists Fear Sedevacantism? managed to rack up a respectable number of views.

Stuck in a Rut: Anti-Sedevacantism in the Age of Bergoglio

THE ELECTION of Jorge Mario Bergoglio by the March 2013 conclave was a turning point in the ongoing dispute among Catholic traditionalists over the question of the pope: Do we “recognize” the post-Vatican II popes as true popes, but “resist” them? (The “R&R” position held by the Society of St. Pius X, Bp. Williamson, The Remnant, Catholic […]

Should I Assist at a Mass that Names “Pope Francis” in the Canon?

Sedevacantists should be consistent, especially since the advent of Bergoglio. by Rev. Anthony Cekada ONE HOT TOPIC endlessly discussed on traditionalist forums over the past few years is whether traditional Catholics should assist at a traditional Latin Mass in which the priest would mention the name of a false pope (like John Paul II, Benedict […]
