Schuckardt left the Catholic Church in the late 1960’s and soon thereafter was ordained to the priesthood, and then consecrated a bishop the next day, by Daniel Q. Brown, a married bishop of the heretical Old Catholic church (Brown was also a fallen away Catholic). Schuckardt claims to have been appointed Pope by the Blessed Mother in 1978. Six years later (1984), Schuckardt's number two man at the CMRI, Dennis Chicione, announced from the pulpit that Schuckardt had been sexually molesting his seminarians (four of whom testified to it in sworn statements) and abusing drugs. After a messy legal battle, the Antipope left the CMRI and found another sect, the “Tridentine Latin Rite Catholic Church,” which he remained with until his death in 2006. link The CMRI is the heretical sect that Mario Derkson, of Novus Ordo Watch, joined after he publicly defected from the faith in 2005. Fr. Jenkins explains the sorted history of Schuckardt and the CMRI.
Another “Pope Peter II”
Pope Linus was recently tracked down. According to his Linkedin page, he now works as the duty operations manager for Tascor E&D, a business supply and equipment company.
These are just a few of the dozens of antipopes produced by the Sedevacantists sects. Would that those who have been led into Sedevacantst heresy, by specious and erroneous argumentation, simply judge the Sedevacantist tree by its fruits (or, in this case, “nuts”).
