In a shocking public display that can only be acknowledged as a declaration of war, Bishop Richard Williamson, the renowned Holocaust Denier of the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX), attacked his superior, Bishop Bernard Fellay. Bishop Williamson made a lengthy argument against Vatican II in his weekly column, Eleision Comments,that is sent around the world to thousands of his SSPX followers. In it he declared that those who follow Vatican II are fostering a religion of man. Then he directly quoted Bishop Fellay's words leading the reader to the conclusion that the SSPX is in a dire crisis because Bishop Fellay is fostering the religion of man. Williamson wrote:
˝But now comes a religious leader [Ed. note: Bishop Fellay] who pronounced in public earlier this month : Many people have an understanding of the Council, which is a wrong understanding. Religious liberty, he said, is used in so many ways. And looking closer, I really have the impression that not many know what really the Council says about it. The Council is presenting a religious liberty that is a very, very limited one: very limited! Asked whether Vatican II itself, i.e. as a whole, belongs to Catholic Tradition, he replied, I would hope so.
See for yourselves the interview, given in English and accessible on YouTube under the title, Traditionalist leader talks about his movement, Rome. Can anybody be surprised if his movement is currently going through the gravest crisis of its 42 years of existence ?"
Although it is clear that Bishop Williamson is trying to prevent an agreement between the SSPX and Rome, it is not clear that he will leave over the disputed action.

1. Is this a separate thread from the other half dozen which you posted on this subject?
“the renowned Holocaust Denier”
When did the Bishop deny the Holocaust? I know he questioned the number murdered and the means by which they were; but when did he deny the Holocaust?
