Strange traditionalist sect on the edge

As Archbishop Dolan has said, "Periodically throughout the Church you'll get these crackpots who claim to be Bishops or claim to be priests or even claim to be part of the Church, and they're not, of course."

This group sounds eerily similiar in many ways to the SBC cult in New Hampshire. I have a friend who tried to enter their chapel in pants some years ago before she realized they were not in communion with the Church. he was told she couldn't go to Mass wearing pants. And SBC members have said that their leader is an ordained deacon in the Church when he's not.

As the SPLC article "The Dirty Dozen" stated, "Like Feeney, the Slaves today see the Vatican II reforms as the product of Jewish pressures and argue that the "Jewish nation is at enmity with Our Lord's Plan." They have denounced the Vatican's moves to reconcile with Jews as "capitulation to the tyrannical demands of the most insidious elements within Jewry (e.g., the Vatican audiences granted to the pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, anti-Christ Jewish Anti-Defamation League)." In fact, the Slaves say that Jews will be the first people to accept the Antichrist and will quickly join "in launching the most savage persecution of the Church in the history of the world." This kind of ugly rhetoric earned the Slaves a sharp rebuke in 2004 from Bishop John B. McCormack of Manchester, N.H., who called their teachings "blatantly anti-Semitic" and "offensive to all people of good will." That didn't stop the Slaves' Brother Anthony Mary, while lecturing at the 2005 St. Joseph Forum's conference, from describing the "Jewish nation" as "the perpetual enemy of Christ" and saying that the Virgin Mary had threatened the Jews with "blood and terror if it's required."
