  Sedevacantism - Pope-Sifting?
Traditional Catholics have tried to explain in various ways how the errors and evils of the officially- sanctioned Vatican II changes could have come from what appears to be the authority of an infallible Church.
Sedevacantism poses serious difficulties for the Church's indefectibility, which prevents the whole Church from either adhering to a false one of rejecting a true one.
Szijarto bases his arguments regarding indefectibility upon quotes which in their original context refer to a doubtful pope, an issue irrelevant to a discussion of sedevacantism, which principally concerns the possibility of a heretical pope.

  Is Sedevacantism Catholic?  Part 1
The position of sedevacantism (that of believing that the chair of Peter is vacant even though the Church Militant doesn’t know it) could be found as an example in history just before and during the Great Western Schism, which illustrates the fruit of sedevacantism.
After reading many different imprimatured articles and rereading many articles in support of the sedevacantist position, it became clear to me that there was a great deal of confusion and that there needed to be an article written quoting the imprimatured articles and books that I had found in my research.
If we are to apply the traditional teaching of the Church to our times, we must understand history and whether or not sedevacantism is in conformity to the teaching of the Church or rather a departure from the teaching of the Church.

Sedevacantism is a theological position embraced by a minority of Traditionalist Catholics which holds that the papacy has been vacant since the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958 (or, in some cases, the death of Pope John XXIII in 1963).
The term "sedevacantism" is derived from the Latin phrase sede vacante, which means "while the see is vacant" (in ecclesiastical parlance, a "see," from the Latin sedes, "seat", is the office which a particular bishop exercises).
The earliest known proponents of sedevacantism were Francis Schuckardt, a lay leader in the Blue Army from the United States and Joaquin Saenz Arriaga, a Jesuit theologian from Mexico.

Sedevacantism is a theological position embraced by some Traditionalist Catholics which maintains that the Holy See is currently vacant.
While sedevacantism assumes there is no pope, groups who have attempted to elect popes (or antipopes) of their own are often erroneously called sedevacantist.
As with Traditionalist Catholicism in general, sedevacantism owes its origins to the rejection of the theological and disciplinary reforms that were carried out by and following the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965).

 The Dispatch - Serving the Lexington, NC - News   (Site not responding. Last check: )
One of the earliest proponents of sedevacantism - perhaps the earliest - was Francis Schuckardt, an American layman and a leader in the Blue Army.
In the late 1960s (or, according to one source, in around 1970 [1]), Schuckardt publicly took the position that the papacy was vacant and that the Church that had emerged from the Second Vatican Council contradicted earlier magisterial teaching.
Those traditionalist Catholics who reject the Council do so primarily because of its teachings on ecumenism and religious liberty, which, they claim, contradict the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church and deny the unique status of Catholicism as the one true religion outside of which there is no salvation.

 Sedevacantism and Mr. Ferrara's Cardboard Pope | Articles: Traditionalist Controversy | Traditional Latin Mass Resources
      Sedevacantism (from the Latin phrase sede vacante,  denoting the interregnum between the death of one pope and the election of another) refers to the belief among some traditionalists that post-Vatican II popes are not true popes.
Ferrara’s attempt to refute sedevacantism with an analogy to the cases of John XXII and Honorius fails because:
Ferrara’s circular argument on sedevacantism as an “absurdity” is refuted by the theologian Berry.

 Sedevacantism
One becomes one's own 'pope', and one loses in advance the possibility of submitting to the Magisterium when one day in the future it pronounces on the postconciliar popes.
Those groups who have proclaimed 'sedevacantism' dogmatically have all broken up into scattered factions whose dispersion speaks eloquently of the fragility of human thought which can never replace the guaranteed certainty of the Church's teaching authority, itself the foundation of all unity in the Church!
It truly is necessary to stay on a magisterially “safe path, in order to remain really within the Church”.

 Biblical Foundations International » Is Gerry Matatics a ''sedevacantist''? » Catholic Apologetics » ...
Every Catholic -- however he or she might prefer to be positive in his presentation of the Faith -- must necessarily oppose and reject all those persons and things that are incompatible with Catholicism.
"Sedevacantism" has become the unfortunate (and inaccurate) nickname for the conviction of those Catholics who are persuaded that adherence to the Catholic Faith and the Catholic Church in our time necessarily entails rejection of John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I and II, and Benedict XVI as heretics and therefore antipopes (see argument below).
The fact is, everyone who hold the position nicknamed "sedevacantism" believes that there is much more that is wrong with the current state of affairs than simply an antipope sitting upon the See of Peter, as though the crisis would be completely resolved if tomorrow an orthodox Catholic were seated upon the throne.

Sedevacantism is, of course, the position that the See of Peter is currently in theological reality vacant because John Paul II (live his two predecessors) is not a legitimate Pope but rather an antipope.
It seeks to establish a parallel between Galileo's heliocentric theory and the sedevacantist "hypothesis." It contends that one must not teach a permissible hypothesis as though it is a certainlty - especially if it is likely to cause scandal - but that equally one must not treat such a hypothesis as a heresy.
The choice of comparision is unfortunate for habemuspapamists, suggesting as it does that everyone will eventually recognize the truth of sedevacantism, as they do that of heliocentrism.

 A Prescription Against "Traditionalism" - Part 3 by I. Shawn McElhinney
Chapter I and its accompanying canon declare that the Pope is the visible head of a visible Church, and that the gates of hell shall not prevail against Her.
This last phrase forms the basis of the attribute of indefectibility that the Church possesses - an indefectibility that sedevacantism denies by logical extension.
It is impossible to embrace sedevacantism and not to be a heretic.

 Is Sedevacantism "Pope-Sifting"?
Traditional Catholics have tried to explain in various ways how the errors and evils of the officially-sanctioned Vatican II changes could come from what appears to be the authority of an infallible Church.
But since the dogmatic fact of legitimacy is (as we have seen) principally historical, the position of Pius XII and his predecessors is unassailable.
Sedevacantism poses serious difficulties for the Church's indefectibility, which prevents the whole Church from either adhering to a false one or rejecting a true one.

 Communicantes: Is That Chair Vacant? A SSPX Dossier on Sedevacantism
Sedevacantism appears then to be a theological position or a theory kept by some traditional Catholics who think that the most recent popes, the popes of the Vatican II council, lost their pontifical authority on account of the grave heresies they have been promoting, and the crisis that came along.
Sedevacantism appears to be more of a psychological than a theological problem… We now see only too well what effects those theological outpourings produce in passionate Catholics.
Along with Sedevacantism, we see a revival of some of the old errors of John Wycliffe and John Hus, who pretended that sinners are no more members of the Church.

Sedevacantism is the belief that the office of pope of the Roman Catholic Church is currently vacant (sede vacante).
Their conclusion is based to some extent on the decree of papal infallibility of the First Vatican Council.
Other traditionalists maintain that the popes since Pius XII, although they may have personally held many of what some traditionalists perceive as scandalous heretical beliefs, nevertheless were true popes who never tried to use their infallible power (which only is used exceptionally) to promulgate a heresy, which all Catholics believe would be impossible.

Until Christ comes again to destroy those heretics who have placed themselves in the Vatican, the Office and Chair of Peter and its numerous followers, advocates, promoters and the ignorant who are many, we have to go against them and follow the truth in the knowledge we have of the Church.
Sedevacantism while is not something that seems apparent until Vatican II would actually have existed if such a diabolical plan and council took place.

Robert Sungenis also warns that Sedevacantism is taking the very dangerous road to Protestantism, something so terrible he said, he has been there and he knows, we don’t want to go there, he said.
I found this a little amusing since the "popes" that he defends think differently, according to them and their new teaching, truth is now in all religions.
He clearly said, Sedevacantism believe the Papacy and the deposit of faith are there, but the Chair of Peter is empty.

To raise the issue of sedevacantism, therefore, is not to engage in anything extraordinary.
Sedevacantism is the theological position of those traditional Catholics who most certainly believe in the papacy, papal infallibility and the primacy of the Roman Pontiff, and yet do not recognize John Paul II as a legitimate successor of Peter in the primacy.
One last consideration on this subject of sedevacantism is the manner in which all these things have come to pass.
