...from the Lefebvrists. We had all been given the general message that their leader was a moderate who could be brought back to the Church and bring some of the team with him. But his latest - rather rambling - speech has the same horrid rant about Jews and conspiracy theories that seems stamped right through this group and forms a central part of their world-view and their theology. In a lecture in Ontario recently Bishop Fellay called the Jewish people "enemies of the church," saying Jewish leaders' support of the Second Vatican Council "shows that Vatican II is their thing, not the church's."
A return to the Church is not possible with this mindset. And it seems that the departure of Bp Williamson was due to the latter's inability to work as a team player, rather than to any deep-seated difference in views. Oh dear.
