Listen to the Debate on
Held October 16, 2006
For those wanting to listen to the full debate, it is now available on audio at October 2006 Debate at John Lane's site of the much ballyhooed debate which took place on Monday, October 16 at the auditorium of Lewis and Clark High School in Downtown Spokane, Washington. It featured John Lane of Australia and editor of The Aquinas Catholic site and the Bellarmine Forum who provided the arguments that the conciliar popes cannot possibly be Catholic and therefore the Church remains in a continued state where the chair remains empty until the election of a valid Pope, debating Robert Sungenis, president of Catholic Apologetics Inc., and a convert who was on EWTN for several years, who took the opposite position, arguing that we must give consideration to the conciliar popes as valid and therefore consent to conciliarism and all the baggage it brings with it in contradiction to Catholic truth. For comments by Myrna Migala and the editor at Hot Issues and the thorough follow up to his own impressions which, hitherto until now, debate moderator Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey remained silent on, but now is free to speak on his perspective of the debate with his feature Debating Past Each Other.
In addition, now available on audio at Traditional Catholic Sermons are the excellent arguments on Sedevacantism by His Excellency Bishop Mark Pivarunas of the Congregation for Mary Immaculate Queen, presented and documented during the 2006 Fatima Conference last week.
Also available are his arguments in print:
