Website Review: The Remnant Newspaper

A review based on:


This website is the home of the Remnant Newspaper and contains information about the publication, as well as articles and commentary. The editors claim that their newspaper upholds and defends the “infallible teachings and immutable traditions of the Catholic Church.” In order to defend these teachings, they cry out against the abuses within the Church’s hierarchy, liturgy, recent council, and clergy, saying, “Catholics cannot leave the Church, nor are they free to lambaste and deny the Pope at will for things like his ‘Altar Girl Permission’ or the ‘Assisi Ecumenical Affair’ or the convening of the Second Vatican Council.”

However, the Remnant’s articles prove the contrary. Not only have they defended and supported those guilty of schismatic acts such as SSPX founder Archbishop Lefebvre and other SSPX bishops, but they have continually rejected most of the teachings in Vatican II and entirely rejected the Novus Ordo Mass. Thus, though the Remnant does have many articles which defend the teachings of the Church, the value of these is compromised because of the publication's dissidence regarding these noted errors.
