The leader of the Society of St. Pius X, a traditionalist Catholic organization that has been essentially declared heretical by the Roman Catholic Church, went on a radio show recently and declared Jews to be enemies of the church. HuffPo reports:
Bishop Bernard Fellay, head of the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X, declared Jews “enemies of the Church” during a talk that aired on a Canadian radio station, the Catholic News Agency recently reported. Fellay’s remarks took place on Dec. 28 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Chapel in New Hamburg, Ontario.Fellay, discussing negotiations with the Vatican in 2012 concerning the Society’s future, said the following during the address: “Who, during that time, was the most opposed that the Church would recognize the Society? The enemies of the Church. The Jews, the Masons, the Modernists.”
Fellay said Jewish leaders’ support of the Second Vatican Council “shows that Vatican II is their thing, not the Church’s,” according to the Catholic Register.
This isn’t the same group that Mel Gibson belongs to, but it’s part of the same Sedevacantist movement that formed in reaction to Vatican II.
