I also wonder if the architects of Vatican II expected sedevacantism and these schisms resulting from the liberal scandals of the Popes.

It seems from reading the article, "no one may judge the Pope" but if they judge the Pope in a  positive light, they let that slide. 

I've often imagined a confession scenario like this: 

Penitent: "Bless me Father for I have sinned....I sat in judgment of the Pope." 

Priest;" What did you say?"

Penitent: "I said the Pope was doing a great job in ecumenical affairs."

Priest:" Well, that's not judging the Pope"

Penitent: " You mean the Pope only gets credit for leading the Church well and bears no responsibility when things go wrong?  That's a sweet deal."

Priest:" Well...."

Penitent" "So St. Paul sinned when he blasted St. Peter?" 

This should be on a sticky in the main forum.
