    Default Bishop Richard Williamson : SSPX.

    Yesterday, Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) decided to expel British-born Bishop Richard Williamson from it's congregation.

    SSPX say that Williamson was guilty disobeying the order of his superiors.
    SSPX has been in dispute with the Roman Catholic church and which say it expulsion in 1988.
    Ongoing negotiations between the Vatican and SSPX broke down recently.

    Williamson is regarded as having controversial views on many issues including 9/11.
    Germany has charged Williamson over remarks he made about the holocaust.
    Williamson opposed negotiations between the SSPX and the Vatican.

    SSPX statement:

    Bishop Richard Williamson, having distanced himself from the management and the government of the SSPX for several years, and refusing to show due respect and obedience to his lawful superiors, was declared excluded from the SSPX by decision of the Superior General and its Council, on October 4th, 2012. A final deadline had been granted to him to declare his submission, after which he announced the publication of an “open letter” asking the Superior General to resign.
    This painful decision has become necessary by concern for the common good of the Society of Saint Pius X and its good government, according to what Archbishop Lefebvre denounced: “This is the destruction of authority. How authority can be exercised if it needs to ask all members to participate in the exercise of authority? “(Ecône, June 29, 1987)Bishop Richard Williamson, having distanced himself from the management and the government of the SSPX for several years, and refusing to show due respect and obedience to his lawful superiors, was declared excluded from the SSPX by decision of the Superior General and its Council, on October 4th, 2012.

    From what I can gather Williamson's opposition to the SSPX policy of negotiation with the Vatican led to him being censured.

    The chap behind the Bishop, right shoulder, looks suspiciously like Griff Rhys Jones.
