I do not pretend my opinions represent the Catholic Church. But on the other hand, I do not pretend to be some idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about. After reading many books and spending many hours doing research, I feel competent to report facts and give my own opinions on them.

There's the issue.

So, after reading "many books and doing many hours of research" you feel competent to sit in judgement of priests of the SSPX to determine if they are "compromised" or not.

Seeing as even the newbie priest which you might be dealing with has done seven years reading far better books and doing far more "hours of research" including a seven year practical living out of the spiritual life in a quasi-monastic setting, including an hour of scripture and spiritual reading each day, at least a half hour of meditation, plus several hours of study of St. Thomas Aquinas, and then most of the priests you are dealing with will have additional many years of practical pastoral formation and learning under their belt, do you honestly think yourself that much more qualified than the priest?

So from whence do you obtain the sacraments? From said "compromised" priests? Do you trust such priests with their confessional advice, or do you also know more than they do in this realm, too?
