Statement by Dr Alcuin Reid on a SSPX response

This should clarify positions a good bit.
Fr Z received this from Alcuin Reid, who is the editor and author of good liturgical sources:

Statement by Dr Alcuin Reid:
On Friday BBC Radio asked me to discuss recent events concerning the SSPX on ‘The Sunday Programme’ this morning. Following that request I asked the SSPX for comment on the issues to be discussed.

Unfortunately Bishop Fellay’s reply reached me only after the programme aired. His reply, written for publication, states:

"The position of Bishop Williamson is clearly not the position of our Society.
Antisemitism has no place in our ranks.

We follow fully God’s commandments on justice and charity and the constant teaching of the Church. Antisemitism has been condemned by the Church. So do we condemn it.

I fully agree with Fr Schmidberger’s statement about Bishop Williamson’s words. ("

God bless you
