ORthodox perspective of Traditionalist Catholics

The Bellarmine quote is not being read in context. It refers to resisting an evil command of the pope, not resisting liturgy, laws, discipline, encyclicals, and so on.

Thank you for pointing this out. I see this quote being used out of context more and more. The first time I saw this quote, and other similar quotes, I saw it separated from its context. They had me convinced that the resistance approach was correct. But once I read St. Robert Bellarmine's entire work for myself, with these quotes in context, I realized what he was really saying.
