A Challenge to Fr. Daniel Themann, SSPX
In April of 2013, Fr. Daniel Themann, SSPX, gave a conference at St. Mary’s, Kansas. The conference was entitled “Resistance to What?”. It was an attack on the public resistance, offered by His Excellency Bishop Richard Williamson and several SSPX priests who have been or are on the verge of being kicked out of the SSPX, against the new direction of the SSPX championed by His Excellency Bishop Bernard Fellay. As the title clearly states, Fr. Themann is of the position that nothing has substantially changed in the SSPX that would warrant a public resistance. In response to this conference, the December 2013 Supplementary Issue of the Recusant publishes an excellent, thorough refutation of Fr. Themann’s arguments. We at the SSPX-Marian Corps Toronto now challenge Fr. Daniel Themann to respond to this refutation.
Father, since you seem so confident of your position, please do us the favour and defend your arguments against the wounds inflicted on them by this refutation.
