Let' see, did Luther reject dogmatic teachings of the Church? Did he reject any of the Sacraments? Did Calvin? Zwingli? Well, yes. They all did. And how many of the Sacraments or dogmas of the Church have the SSPX rejected? Oh, none? Maybe there is a difference?
Then there is hope. The various traditionalist Catholics (Mel Gibson's father's bunch e.g.) also do not reject dogmatic teachings of the Church, or so we think. I'm not so sure about that bunch...

(I would not believe in the Gospel, if the authority of the Catholic Church did not move me to do so.)
Then there is hope.
There is, and more, we are certain that the Gates of Hell will not prevail. The Eternal Church will be here, today and forever.The SSPX is a tiny part of a giant, eternal structure but they are not either the whole Church nor a "new" church.
