I think the gentleman's comments sum up this very well:

Quote:That having been said, anyone can see in the Church Militant article there is not a single new first-hand account of abuse, nor is there a single new corroborated allegation of abuse.  There are no law enforcement sources claiming a criminal investigation is underway.

It is easy in April of 2020 to make allegations against Catholic priests, especially the few priests remaining in the United States who are providing sacraments to the laity.  However, we should be concerned with truth and justice and not mere allegations.


If there are real issues, they need to be fixed. Seems that the SSPX has been trying to do that. I wonder why this was not in the CM report, seeing as it has been on their homepage and in place now for a while.

Given that there's no new first-hand accounts of abuse, or any corroboration, nor any law enforcement sources, but just taking what could already be found on the internet and throwing it all together as if this were fresh journalism, with a very clear editorial spin is disgraceful.

I went to confession at an SSPX chapel for the first time last week. Given that all I know is NO, I wasn't sure if getting hit with a cane over the head for every sin or if the priest was going to exorcise demons out of me was a part of it (I didn't know what to expect); I had to ask someone nearby (six feet away) if I had to do the act of contrition in Latin, thankfully that isn't required because I would have been tempted to do it in Spanish since I could do that and save face and possibly not get hit with a cane one additional time. 

Anyways, what I was trying to get to is that confession was done outside. Well sorta outside, because you would walk into a door and immediately be met with a cloth wall and a kneeler for you to confess. We were lining up perpendicular to the open door so we couldn't see beyond the open door, but you could obviously see a person confessing if you happen to pass by or be just behind them. I could see such a situation being reported nefariously given what was just released by CM, especially if you happen to hold on to photos of people confessing outside in the open. 

Personally, I've never really been inclined to drop entities or people for having an axe to grind or because they gave false information. Better to call it out and have the correction spread. We don't live in a monarchy or system that can eradicate errors in any efficient way. Bad information can only be fought with good information in said system and that is harder to do if we all retract and become myopic together.
