Unabashedly Catholic News and Views
This is funny because every complaint in Fr. Giovanni's rambling rant can and has been made by the very "modernists" he's railing against. Modernists have been kicked aside by bishops; modernists have had their Masses replaced with Latin reenactments; modernists have [fill in the blanks for all the rest]. Modernists are the ones being oppressed and I think it's laughable whenever a neo-con tries to claim otherwise.
I do not think that word means what you think it means.
"modernists have had their Masses replaced with Latin reenactments" Really? Where has that been happening, Long Pants? I'd truly like to know. It must be a closely-guarded secret, because otherwise by now, howls of protest from the happy-clappy "We Are Church" Human Be-In reenactors would be reverberating from sea to shining sea.Seriously, Long Pants -- where has that been happening?
I will agree with Long Pants to this extent;the new translation of the English Novus ordo is discomfiting the man in the pews in the same way that the changes discomfited the man of the pews in the 60s. It's the exact same type of oppression.
