A distinction can be made between white and black propaganda. White propaganda is basically an informercial. You know someone is trying to sell you something and that they are going to spin the presentation in the interests of their sale. Black propaganda, on the other hand, is false information from a source that pretends to be friendly but is actually hostile.
Leave it to the traditionalists to exploit Christmas for their anticonciliar views. At least no one can fault them in this for a lack of transparency.
Bishop Fellay of the Society of St. Pius X promulgated a Christmas pastoral that impresses upon the faithful why the mystery of Christmas reveals to us the evils of the Second Vatican Council. Merry Christmas everyone!
The really unfortunate thing is that these kinds of ideas are gaining currency among those who are ostensibly “regular” and openly supportive of the present occupant of the Chair of St. Peter, as though Pope Benedict’s hermeneutic of continuity was a question rather than an answer. Collegiality is anathema to the traditionalists because theirs is an elitist way of life in which the few have control over every aspect of the lives of the many. ”Who cares what the pope or an ecumenical council says if it does not confirm our airtight system of ideas?”
It is funny how everything, and I mean everything, points to the same conclusion, that the poor plebs in the pews should have more trust in Bishop Fellay than they should in Pope Benedict. Aren’t you amazed that this little kernel of gold was hidden in the manger of Bethlehem?
It was news to me too.
