Things have been comfortable for the Society of St. Pius X(SSPX) and their lay supporters since they have held the liberal position on Vatican Council II,due to a common theology with the liberals, based on the irrationality in the Letter of the Holy Office 1949.
The SSPX was quick to disown Bishop Richard Williamson and avoid the Anti-Semitic charge.While they are slow, very slow, in saying that LG 16 ( saved in invincible ignorance) and LG 14 ( known catechumen saved without the baptism of water) refers to invisible cases in 2016.
Even lay supporters of the SSPX, prolific writers and speakers in English, are not giving me permission to quote them.They do not want to be quoted saying there are no physically known cases in 2016 of the baptism of desire(BOD) and invincible ignorance(I.I).
Imagine this! This is common knowledge.It is common knowledge that we cannot see the soul of a person, yet they will not state this in public.They will not say BOD and I.I cases are physically invisible, they cannot be seen by the naked eye in 2016 nor was this possible in the past.
Neither is this being said by the sedevacantist Bishop Donald Sanborn, Rector of a Catholic seminary in Florida, USA.
Things are comfortable.
I can say that LG 16 and LG 14 can not be physically visible in 2016 since I do not have to protect a career, bank balance or reputation as a liberal.
This is not the way it is with Bishop Sanborn and Fr. Anthony Cekada.
Even Bishop Bernard Fellay the Superior General of the SSPX continues to issue statements every year about a doctrinal problem. He will not comment on how he affirms UR 3, LG 16, LG 8 etc as referring to known exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.Visible exceptions to the Feeneyite extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS).He opposes EENS as it was known to the 16th century missionaries.
Even the communities of Fr. Leonard Feeney in the USA, the St. Benedict Centers are not saying in public that LG 16 etc refer to invisible cases and so are not explicit exceptions to EENS as interpreted by the founder of their communities.
So today Catholics are divided on this issue.
It is really them and me.
Pope Pius XII whom Bishop Fellay admires overlooked this error in the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 and so the liberals Cardinal Cushing and the American Jesuits, took advantage of this confusion and incorporated the error in Vatican Council II (LG 14, AG 7, NA 2 etc).
The text of Vatican Council II mentions BOD and I.I when they really are only hypothetical cases.They have been part of a campaign over the centuries by those who wanted to eliminate the dogma EENS.
There are obviously no known cases of BOD and I.I in our reality.
So why is this not bein said in public by Bishop Fellay, Bishop Sanborn, Chris Ferrara, John Vennari,John Salza,Robert Siscoe,Fr.Brian Harrison, Dr.Joseph Shaw,Michael Matt, John Lamont and Thomas Pink?
This is the traditional ecclesiology and understanding of ecumenism and other religions.This is the old ecclesiology supporting exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church, the necessity for all to be formal members of the Catholic Church to avoid Hell and it is supported by Vatican Council II with no ambiguity.
