“A leading Vatican official slammed breakaway traditionalist Catholics for anti-Semitic positions.
Cardinal Kurt Koch, president of the Vatican Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, in an interview Tuesday with the Italian religious news agency SIR slammed the followers of the renegade Priestly Fraternity of St. Pius X for rejecting the Vatican II policy on Jews. It is only that small group, he said, who ‘do not accept ecumenical dialogue, relations with Jews and religious freedom.’
Koch questioned whether because of this, they could even be considered Catholic.
‘These are central points of the teaching of the Holy Father, and if [there is] a group that does not accept a council and does not accept a teaching, one must ask how they see each other as Catholic,’ he said.”
