Here's the Traditio take on it;
SSPX's Superior General Calls Benedict-Ratzinger a "Perfectly Liberal Pope"From: The Fathers
Why Then Does Fellay Pander to Him and Newrome?
Portrait of a Smiling Janus Face
Bernie Fellay, Superior General of the SSPX, at It Again
He Disses a Traditional Pope to Bite the Hand that Kept His Native Country Free
In Addition to Being One Addled Bloke, Fellay Is an Uncatholic Ingrate
The Society of St. Pius X's Superior General, Bernie Fellay, has once again displayed his Janus face. On the one hand, he has decreed that all SSPX priest-presbyters should sing Te Deums to Benedict-Ratzinger for his Great "Motu" Mess Hoax. But on June 1, 2008, at a "homily" at Saint-Nicolas-du-Chardonnet in Paris, he took a slam at both Benedict-Ratzinger and at the United States, many of whose soldiers died to protect his home country from devastation by the Nazis:
And now, we have a perfectly liberal pope, my very dear brothers. As he goes to this country [the United States], which is founded upon Masonic principles, that is, of a revolution, of a rebellion against God.
Apparently, Fellay failed his course in Church history. It was a traditional pope, Leo XIII (1878-1903), who in his Encyclical Letter Longinque oceani of January 6, 1985, highly praised the American Republic and its wise founders. Leo XIII wrote: "Thanks are due to the equity of the laws which obtain in America and to the customs of the well-ordered Republic. For the Church amongst you, unopposed by the Constitution and government of your nation, fettered by no hostile legislation, protected against violence by the common laws and the impartiality of the tribunals, is free to live and act without hindrance."
Pope Leo had a particularly high regard for the Father of the American Republic, referring to him as Washingtonius Magnus, the Great Washington. Washington himself acknowledged the crucial role played by Catholics in the founding of the American Republic. He lamented anti-Catholicism, contributed to the construction of a Catholic Church in Baltimore, and petitioned government support for Catholic missionaries among the Indians. Reports from members of his household indicate that he attended Catholic Mass on occasion and died a convert to the Catholic Faith on his deathbed.
Good Catholics, not only is Fellay one addled bloke; he is an unCatholic ingrate as well.
