Stop it now!

Stop the name calling. Stop the rancour. Stop the attacks.

Michael Voris, Louis Verrecchio. Christopher Ferrara. Michael Matt. John Vennari.

Stop attacking one another. 

The enemy is at the door and you guys want to fight it out with each other.

Stop it now!

To Mark Shea and the rest of you; Stop calling people rad-trads, and mad-trads and trads-behaving-badly. Stop calling the SSPX schismatic, these little people who have been scandalised are not the problem.

To Mundabor, Will you take a pill! We can disagree with Pope Francis without calling him hateful names, can't we?

Give it a rest.

The lion is lurking and none of you are helping.

We are going to end up as his food if we do not stop it and deal with the real enemy.

Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey,and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
Ps. 17:12.

Yes, you are absolutely right, but you also have to know that the last video from Remnant Clearly is calling for unity of all of us, who recognize that we have the same enemy in Vatican:

But the SSPX are schismatic. If you obey clergy who aren't loyal to Rome, that's schismatic.

But yes, we should be nicer to one another.

No, the SSPX are not in schism (and I'm an EF attendee btw)
"The Bishops, Priests, and Faithful of the Society of St Pius X are not schismatics. It is Archbishop Lefebvre who has undertaken an illicit Episcopal consecration and therefore performed a schismatic act. It is for this reason that the Bishops consecrated by him have been suspended and excommunicated. The priests and faithful of the Society have not been excommunicated. They are not heretics. I do, however, share St. Jerome’s fear that heresy leads to schism and vice versa. The danger of a schism is big, such as a systematic disobedience vis-à-vis the Holy Father or by a denial of his authority. It is after all a service of charity, so that the Priestly Society gains full communion with the Holy Father by acknowledging the sanctity of the new Mass" (From Cardinal Hoyos, Rorate, Feb. 2007)

Let's play nice?

I've seen communities self-destruct in academia, business, prolife organizations and now religious apostolates. In every case, an idea or cause is taken up by sincere, often exceptional, people who found and build extraordinary organizations. In order to continue from their first phase of growth, they find patrons who promise to take them to the "next level", only to take them to the cleaners. These "patrons" divert the founders from their original principles and engage in business practices designed to eliminate their former allies, now competitors, and monopolize their market space. They bring in people skilled at waging this kind of warfare, and drive out the creative people who made them marketable in the first place.

Sound familiar? I've never seen an organization recover from this Faustian bargain. The Devil ALWAYS gets his due.
