What I don't like about the terminology is that is seems to assume or state that all people involved with the NO are formal heretics, and I disagree with that. And yet, the other Church is spelled with a capital "C" to indicate being a part of the True Church. It seems so confusing as to what is meant exactly. I am curious about how the Archbishop would have explained his use of two Churches, if it would have been along the lines of the Bishop's letter or not. I wonder why this terminology never trickled down into the SSPX a little more? Unless I haven't been paying as much attention as I thought I was, that's a possibility. I am more drawn to other topics.

No time to type much now, but just a few quick thoughts:

Quote:What I don't like about the terminology is that is seems to assume or state that all people involved with the NO are formal heretics, and I disagree with that.

From all I've read of +AL & +BW (which is a lot), I don't think they think that or mean to imply it.  In fact, I'm sure if I dig around I could find quotes by them that show they don't.  Come to think of it, didn't one of +BW's recent "True Pope?" EC's say exactly the opposite about the Pope - that, while he may be a material heretic, he is not necessarily a formal heretic?  Anyway, I'm sure that neither +AL nor +BW thought/think that "all people involved with the NO are formal heretics." 

Quote: It seems so confusing as to what is meant exactly.

Yes, well it's partly confusing because it is!  (If you know what I mean.)  This is not an easy crisis in the Church to characterize.   Diabolical Disorientation about sums it up.

Last time I posted the above quotes by +AL, I think Nic? posted some info. from an SSPX website that explained how they look at it.  I don't have time to look for it at the moment, but if no one else does, I'll try to find it later.
