What I was trying to get at
Submission can be a virtue, when it's to a legitimate authority. That's why it's usually a good idea to follow laws that you disagree with, as long as they aren't so disordered as to be evil. What SSPX is saying, I think, is that they're the ultimate arbiters of right and wrong when it comes to the Church. As long as they're not sitting on the Chair of Peter, I'm rather hard-pressed to come up with an explination of how they can say what they say and still call themselves Catholics in good standing.
