Under the heading of "Bp McCrazy" Patrick Archibald publishes this short video, in which poor old Bishop Richard Williamson talks about his latest conspiracy theory: an atomic attack on the Olympics.
The SSPX, or at least Bishop Fellay has done his best to distance himself from the most eccentric of his co-bishops. The recent General Chapter of the SSPX seems to have been about Fellay strengthening his power base within the SSPX in order to be able to further negotiations with the Holy See. No rational person wants to see the Society fragment.
Bp Williamson was received into the Catholic Church, and almost immediately tried to join the London Oratory, but after a visit of a few weeks was judged as quite unsuitable, he then went to Econe where he was ordained priest and then chosen by Archbishop Lefebrve in 1988 to be one of the four Bishops. Many people have suggested that the Archbishop deliberately chose as bishops men who would be dispensers of sacraments rather than leaders of the "priestly society", his expectation was that a simple priest would be Superior General.
The problem is that Williamson seems to be doing everything he can to get himself expelled from the Society, he seems to want to become a Traditionalist Archbishop Malingo, having a rogue bishop around is always highly problematic for the Church. The question is will Williamson end up setting up his own Church with a few former SSPX clergy becoming madder and madder and more distant from Peter. If he does, at 72, will he then set up his own group of Episopi vagantes to continue his own Church.
His major flaw is his lack of prudence and his lack of a sense of belonging to the Catholicos both very dangerous - pray for him and for the restoration of the SSPX.
