Bishop Richard Williamson, the Society of St. Pius X bishop and famous for his comments on the Holocaust, has said, astonishingly, that the discussions between the Society of St. Pius X and the Vatican are a "dialogue of the deaf." My rough translation (the segment starts around 12:05 on the video) from his French: "I think that will end up as a dialogue of the deaf. The two positions are absolutely irreconcilable. For example, 2+2=4 and 2+2=5 are irreconcilable. So, either those who say 2+2=4 renounce the truth and agree that 2+2=5—that is, the [SSPX] abandons the truth, which God forbids us to do—or, well, those who say 2+2=5 convert and then return to the truth. Or, well, the two come halfway and say that 2+2=4-1/2. That’s false. Or, either the [SSPX] becomes a traitor, or Rome converts, or it’s a dialogue of the deaf.” H/T to Cathy Grossman at USA Today and Reuters Faith World. Et voilà le video, en français, ci-dessus. The idea of Rome "converting" is particularly rich. And if your French is good, you can also hear what the bishop has to say about "the Jews" and Israel.
