A Catholic Hipster Guide to Sedevacantists

You know them, you love them, you might just be one of them (though, probably not, because they most likely have this website blocked on their Internet Explorer...yeah, internet explorer). 

Sedevacantists are everyone's favorite Protestants who think they're more Catholic than the Pope!

But they come in many shapes and sizes, so we've made this handy guide to help you out!

Rad Trads - These are folks who are teetering on the brink. They kind of hate Pope Francis and even think Pope Benedict was a tad too "liberal". They haven't fully defected, but they're actively reading Sede Twitter and thinking they might jump ship any day now. 

Sedes - These are the folks who are pretty easy to spot. They mostly have old Pope's as their Twitter avatar, go around making comments about how Pope Benedict denied the bodily resurrection of Jesus, and think that we haven't had a valid Pope since Peter (or sometime shortly after Peter). 

SSPX - These are the most well-known Sedes around, but I'm sure I'll get a backlash saying they aren't actually Sedes, right?

Followers of Pope Michael - Basically, his mommy. 

Tin Foil Crew - These are the ones that go WAY beyond simply denying there is a Pope. These are the folks who make endless nasty ad hominem attacks, deny certain historical tragedies, and even make the folks at Novus Ordo Watch shake their heads with wonder.

No matter which brand of Sede you come into contact with today, remember to be charitable. 

You may be the person God wants to help lead them back to the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church!

Also, #YearofMercy...
