The Skojec-Martinez Debate on Francis's "Universal Acceptance" & Is the Sammons/Skojec 1P5 an Opus Dei Operation?
It seems that the present publisher of the Traditionalist One Peter Five website, Eric Sammons, and the former 1P5 publisher, Steve Skojec, have a lot in common. Both are obsessed with the notion of the "universal acceptance" of Francis and both are apparently very devoted to Opus Dei.
Do Traditionalists have a problem with Opus Dei?
In 2018, the Traditionalist Catholic Remnant editor Michel Matt showed his problems with "the 'conservative' 'watchdog of orthodoxy', Opus Dei" saying "Meanwhile, back at the Circle O (Opus Dei, that is), it's business as usual... As long as they have their pristine place in the Church with tons of money and are left alone, they will cheerlead whatever The Argentinian [Francis] says.":
Yes, that's right-- the "conservative" "watchdog of orthodoxy", Opus Dei, our sentry at the gate, is still keeping the sheeple in the dark about what's really going on here. As a friend recently noted, "They will not only go along with, but boldly champion whatever the man in white says, no matter what. They willfully ignore all problems--including heresy, approving adultery, banning death penalty, not answering credible sex abuse cover up allegations--the whole nine yards. As long as they have their pristine place in the Church with tons of money and are left alone, they will cheerlead whatever The Argentinian says."

Another question The Catholic Monitor wants to ask is:
Is it maybe possible that Opus Dei promoter and One Peter Five publisher Sammons is refusing to look at the evidence that his beloved Francis may be an antipope because of Opus Dei money? [It appears that Opus Dei Promoter 1P5 Publisher Sammons would not let Hammer of Antipopes St. Bernard write for One Peter Five]
It is possible that 1P5 is receiving money from
this pro-Francis order. If this is so then it would be to their
benefit to at least publicly state they aren't receiving funding from
We do know this much, Sammons "admires" Opus Dei and even has an Opus Dei Archives:
Opus Dei "admire[r]" Sammons once said "We can come to love Francis the pope." [https://onepeterfive.com/can-we-love-pope-francis/]
Remember what the Traditionalist Catholic Remnant editor Matt said:
"Meanwhile, back at the Circle O (Opus Dei, that is), it's business as usual... As long as they have their pristine place in the Church with tons of money and are left alone, they will cheerlead whatever The Argentinian [Francis] says."
Might Skojec also be an Opus Dei admirer?

What's up with the all the Escrivá quotes?
Can you imagine if the quotes were from Marcial Maciel?
I guess traditionalists now think Escrivá is worthy of quoting. Funny, back in the day most trads hated Josemaría Escrivá & Opus Dei?
Finally, Sammons is also continuing Skojec's obsession with "universal acceptance." [https://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2021/11/the-great-and-powerful-remnant-1p5.html]
The publisher of The Catholic Monitor, Fred Martinez, would be happy to debate Sammons on "universal acceptance" as he debated Skojec in 2019 in the comment section and the CM post Monitor: [B]e a Man... [A]dmit that your Theory about "Universal Aceptance" is a Fraud or Counter" vs. Skojec: "[C]all him a Liar. At least be a Man about it": https://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2019/06/monitor-be-man-admit-that-your-theory.html:
