Would this be the son of Anton Scalia?

I was wondering what Justice Scalia's son's reaction would be to the recently acknowledged scandal of his order. Could he be FSSP-bound?

Joe, Fr.Scalia doesn't belong to an order.

Point of clarification: yes, Fr. Scalia is secular as I diocesan priest, but priests of the FSSP are secular, too. Technically, they are an institute bound by their constitution and statutes, not a religious order bound by a rule like the Carthusians or Benedictines. Same goes for the ICRSS and (acknowledging their canonical irregularity) the FSSPX. They're all secular priests.
