1 Peter 5's Steve Kojec writes: Traditionalist priest, psychologist, and exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger (speaks) about serious problems afflicting the traditionalist movement.
These include pride, impurity, rebellion against authority, disrespect for clergy, an exaggerated interest in what is bad in the Church and the world, undue isolation from the world, weakness in the spiritual life, and so on. These are real problems, and they really are obstacles to not just our salvation, but our success in attaining even the most worthy goals we seek in this life.
I have to agree that traditionalists have shot themselves in the foot and lost so much credibility in terms of the rhetoric they use against the pope and others with whom they disagree. It is as though they know almost nothing about about the spiritual life and what constitutes sins, mortal sins, against charity. Com boxes on traditional websites wreak of the smoke of Satan when it comes to the language used against those individuals with whom they disagree as though the laity have any authority even symbolically to name someone as fake, heretical or excommunicated. To do so betrays a complete ignorance of traditional Catholicism.
