The Vatican Curia, use the same irrational reasoning in the interpretation of Vatican Council II.The dead-saved are visible exceptions to the dogma it is inferred. They accept the Marchetti-Cushingite reasoning and reject Feeneyism.This is irrational and heretical but also magisterial since 1949.
While Peter Vere, the SSPX and other traditionalists infer that BOB and BOD refer to cases personally known in the present times, for them to be defacto exceptions to all needing to be formal members of the Church, to avoid Hell.This non traditional position which contradicts the pre-1949 magisterium, is also held by the sedevacantists influenced by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.
