Meanwhile on the Internet (more specifically Facebook): Peter Slipper was trolling a Catholic post when he was stopped in his tracks-
Being confronted with our recent article on him (which Ross had posted on the thread for all to see), detailing his past, Peter Slipper then politely bowed out (and promptly de-friended Jonathan Ross from Holy Faith Media). Why? You cannot stand on the ‘Moral High Ground’ if you have been exposed.
Slipper never imagined his secret that he inquired about being a priest in the Australian Personal Ordinariate, and three weeks after he got his rejection letter he was with the Brazilian Catholic Apostolic Church (ICAB) would be published on this blog. Like the rogue former head of ICAB-UK with his own questionable past, James Atkinson-Wake, who tried to join the Catholic clergy and when rejected started promoting Sedevacantist material, Slipper did the same:
So what do Sedevacantists think of ICAB? Well I wrote prominent Sedevacantist ‘thought leader’ Fr Anthony Cekada (whose material James Atkinson-Wake posted) asking for a statement on the validity of ICAB Orders for publishing, and he replied:
If Slipper or Atkinson-Wake knew anything about the Sedevacantist movement, they would know they are no friend of theirs. Of course Slipper himself has no formal Theological training, similar to James Atkinson-Wake, so they will post the material of others, rather than write essays themselves.
I came across a good quote about rogue bishops (or “Episcopi vagantes”):
“Episcopi vagantes summed up: ‘tossing about between Modernism, theosophy, and simple megalomania.’ Ex-clergy or clergy wannabes who think they’re better than the church and want to be clergy to get respect; clericalism.”
In both cases I would pick “clergy wannabe” and “simple megalomania”- but considering the mental health of both, neither are licitly or validly ordained.
