SSPX Sex Scandals And Cover Ups
#85
Br. Martin Navarro sums this whole issue up pretty well:


Quote:Due to the lack of an objective source of facts & the stonewalling/gaslighting by the only source of info, I’ve concluded that it is seriously imprudent to listen to any additional information published by Church Militant regarding the SSPX.

Quote:Even in the reporting itself. And it’s not just the refusal of taking questions, but calling everyone that does ask a question complicit in the cover-up.

No one who has truth on their side needs to be defensive or angry. They hold the stronger position. CM's histrionic reactions to the smallest challenge or question shows exactly why they should be last on the list of people we turn to for helping foster Church accountability. Stating this about CM in its present state is not to deny that they have done good in the past. Logically irrelevant to the issue at hand.

Justice must be maintained by the principled, not the effeminate.


But really I would repeat: the last people we should entrust the maintenance of justice to are the emotional types. The idea that if a person insists that we comb through the "evidence" while strictly adhering to long-standing principles of justice--that he is somehow excusing or complicit in the cover-up--is ridiculous. Justice cannot be done if the principles of prudence and justice are dispensed with, by definition. And repeating this has nothing to do with saying that the SSPX is innocent or guilty. It has nothing to do with not caring for victims of abuse. It is the necessary preface to any investigation, in order to safeguard it from prejudice.

By the way, the idea that because Our Lord felt righteous indignation, therefore we can too when we feel it is self-justified, is baloney wrapped in a truckload of pure pride. Just read the saints and doctors. Righteous anger is as rare as a pure intention, for purity of heart is the necessary condition of righteous anger, and even then we should exercise caution because of the insidious nature of pride. Anyone who thinks otherwise is contradicting the spiritual tradition.
