And the only way one can be outside of the Church is to be unbaptized, heretical, or schismatic. He is arguing that since the SSPX rejects Vatican II, they are heretics. The funny thing is that this completely goes against what Conservatives and others say (that VII did not introduce any new novelty, must be read in light of tradition, hermeneutic of continuity, etc.)

I'm not saying he's taken the right side, I'm just saying he's got the principle right.  Trads complain that NO Catholics get this wrong.  That being said, the SSPX is certainly schismatic.
