Is it ever OK to attend a Novus Ordo Mass?

No kidding, and here I thought the Écône “consecrations” being illicit and invalid was the driving reason for the breakaway...

I wasn’t making the argument that the ICKSP and the FSSP, in particular, didn’t begin as offshoots, at least conceptually, of the SSPX.  They are both, however, in full communion with Rome. The SSPX is not.

Objectively no sedevacantist group can have good priests, unless we’re using those words in the same way one might describe a good Protestant minister, since that’s essentially what they are.

By your logic, are diocesan TLM and groups founded pre-Écône the only ones not suspect?  What about the Eastern Churches that came back into communion with Rome after the Great Schism? Are they suspect, too? They were all palsy-walsy with the Orthodox for a while, maybe we shouldn’t trust their Divine Liturgies, either.
