Why is Adventism historically against labor unions? u/Blackiejedi, r/exAdventist, Reddit
Ellen White, the Adventist prophetess, must have read or heard that Pope Leo XIII (pope from 1878 to 1903) was in favour of trade unions and discussed various labour issues in his 1891 encyclical Rerum novarum. If the pope was for it, Ellen would be against it. That’s my theory anyway.

Traditionalism’s flawed approach to the MagisteriumWhere Peter Is
I wish groups like the SSPX would get it right. This deals with an FSSP priest in communion with Rome. If the FSSP got it right, we could move forward more easily. The FSSP are not getting it right.
