They schooled us, with the help of their Master.  Unfortunately for them, the check-mate is waiting just around the corner.  We have the Lord.  And in their hubris, they've been duped into thinking He's a figment of our imagination.  Oh, how wrong they're about to be.

Quite, quite true - I try to think 'courage, Patrick - Deus vult!' and as you say, whatever awful rampages the godless and the enemy in the Church manage to mount, we have the word of our Lord that the Church will prevail.

Has there ever been a case where a Novus Ordo/Concilliar  bishop or prelate  granted the SSPX a nice church?

Yes, it's very bad. Around these parts we have these annual parish retreats called "Christ Renews His Parish", or CHIRP. They are lay retreats, run by laymen and consist mainly of participants from past years giving "testimonials" and generally spouting off and sermonizing.

It's the same reason I never opened my freshman class for discussion. Who the Hell cares about their opinion? If I want to know about a subject, why should I listen to some amateur? Though it sounds so obvious it may seem superfluous, and yet no one any more seems to know it: Teaching ought to be reserved to those who know.

There are some extremely intelligent and learned posters on FE.  Just because it's the internet doesn't mean that everyone is a moron.

In fact, I think we've had some PhDs post here before.  They certainly have more authority than you.  And your rejection of that just disproves everything you're saying.  You want to only listen to those with authority, but then you reject those with authority that you don't like.
