The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith(CDF), Vatican could soon be faulting the Society of St.Pius X(SSPX). It would be for not accepting the CDF's irrational interpretation of Vatican Council II. The CDF uses Cushingism, and claimsg the dead are visible to us on earth.
Four priests of the SSPX, Italy with whom I have spoken to in Rome, and who accept Vatican Council as a historical fact, say that LG 8( elements of sanctifcation and grace), LG 16 (invincible ignorance),UR 3 (imperefect communion with the church) etc are not known exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. So in reality, for them, there could not be any exception to the dogma on exclusive salvation, even, if the CDF claims that there are and suggests that they are mentioned in Vatican Council II.
When the SSPX priests from Albano say that LG 16, LG 8, UR 3 etc are not known exceptions in 2013 to the dogma on salvation, they are using Feeneyism,in the interpretation of Council texts. With Feeneyism, which says there are no visible exceptions, Vatican Council II is traditional and non ambigous.It is in agreement with the Syllabus of Errors on the subjects of other religions and Christian communities.
The Vatican Curia does not interpret the Council with Feeneyism, and is expected to fault the SSPX, for not endorsing the un-real Cushing interpretation. This version of the Council alleges that those saved in invincible ignorance (LG 16) etc are physically visible to us on earth. So it is assumed wrongly that they are known exceptions to the dogma on salvation and the Syllabus.
The SSPX is expected to accept Vatican Council II, a term used in a general sense, without specifying which of the two interpretations it refers to.
Even a young Catholic , with no knowledge of theology, would know that Archbishop Gerhard Muller's position is ridiculous.if we cannot see the dead then how can these cases be exceptions? Where does Vatican Council II say that we can see exceptions to the dogma or that these cases are visible exceptions? It does not.
Archbishop Muller could want the SSPX to accept Vatican Council II with the dead man walking theory.It is a false premise on which he basis his theology.
The SSPX has a right to canonical status since their traditional position is in agreement with Vatican Council II, interpreted with Feeneyism. The CDF has to acknowledge this. They also have to accept Vatican Council II in public, interpreted with Feeneyism since it is rational, whereas Cushingism is not.-Lionel Andrades
