This threat of legal action puts the whole thing in a different light, however.
Seriously, what kind of a man, to say nothing of a Catholic, would put "Madonna" as one of his favorite performance acts?
The Ignis Ardens website states that 'it is a Taditionalist Catholic forum with a pro-SSPX bias... but that 'this forum's support for SSPX is not to be taken as evidence of the SSPX's support for this forum.'
The latter part of this statement is certainly true with regard to Ignis Ardens' involvement to date in a campaign which undermines the authority of the Society's General House.
I refer to the section entitled 'Krahgate,' which, under the cover of anonymity, raises serious allegations against Menzingen's lawyer, Maximilian Krah, and, by extension, against the Superior General himself.
Whilst this file, which apparently originated elsewhere, was recently removed at the initiative of the Ignis Ardens moderator, the damage caused will be much more difficult to repair given the public nature of the internet and the propensity for calumny and detraction to spread.
In this regard Bishop Fellay does not exclude having recourse to judicial process, and this should serve a warning to those who think they can commit public slander via the internet with impunity.
Father Paul Morgan.

Edit as of 9:15 GMT, 2 May: After having talked to the owner of Ignis Ardens, we understand that she is quite happy with things as they are and has no animus at all toward Father Morgan or the SSPX. As she explained it, she was never comfortable with the Krahgate report anyway and is happy to be rid of it.
She's not too worried about any legal action either.
