Thomas, frankly, your experience has corroborated my impressions of Catholic Answers, the New Evangelization, the EWTN coverup operation, and the whole lousy post V2 religious industrial complex and their conditioning centers called Catholic schools and universities.
I am continually amazed at how traditionalists are treated so horribly by the novus ordo and its propagandists - proud, uneducated, usefull idiots if ever there were. And very self righteous. They definitely have all the answers. Just ask them. After all, they welcome all callers from whatever faith or background or belief. Just not traditionalists. Now sit down, shut up, and move to the back of the bus.
Interestingly, just this morning my novus ordo wife told me she's not going to deal with "my anger toward the church" anymore. (However, in defense of myself I have to say that I am often called "angry" when I simply disagree with the novus ordo mindset. It makes them feel very threatend, whether it's my wife, my 90 year old mother, my siblings, etc. Our children, of course, don't care because, well, they don't care. (And hasn't that been the desired end of "Catholic education" since V2 and the modernist invasion?)
"Yes, dear", I sure don't want to be "an angry white male", and not have people like me. Because, after all, the thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars that we and my parents pumped into "Catholic education"(sic),including our own, has left us with children who live with their girlfriends, don't go to mass, etc. The usual. And yes, I'll take all of the blame; but I sure as hell didn't need the backstabbings that we got from the what we thought were Catholic schools teaching - AND INCULCATING - the faith, and morals. What was I thinking? Looking back I can recall so many hideous, blatant instances of corruption in those places by the people who were supposedly teaching us, and then our children, that I was as blind as blind can be. Obviously quite a sinner myself.
Aw, what the heck. If we just give it another 50 or so years I'm sure all of the "misunderstandings" and "misinterpretations" of V2 will be all straightened out.
Let's admit it folks. (Or at least I have to admit it for myself.) A lot of us listen to their radio or tv, or read the novus ordo sights, just to satisfy a morbid curiousity about the latest novus ordo atrocity, and then we/I get angry. But then, let's also admit that no one likes being played for a sucker. And once you find out that you have been played for a sucker, it seems quite natural to get upset. Very upset.
And I've got to stop that. I think it shows a lack of faith and trust in Our Lord and his Blessed Mother. Leave the dead to bury the dead.
And I want my money back. My parents too.
