Church Militant TV - Pride and Prejudice

Continuing from yesterday's post, I'd like to take a quick look at CMTV's personal response to the SSPX press release ( Church Militant: Response to SSPX press release ).

Since Baresel's first article was shot down ... they appear to be trying to save face.  First, by reiterating the assertion that the SSPX is somehow sheltering Fr.

Theologian Laennec Hurbon may be cited as representing a belief among many authors that no Pope before 1890 condemned slavery when he stated that, &…

A New Church for the SSPX and my Alma-Mater!


The SSPX is looking to build a church to accommodate the faithful in St. Mary's, Kansas!

Looking back over the decades, I'm glad that the project was delayed - otherwise they would be building another church!
