There is zero response? Maybe we aren't really like minded Catholics after all? Maybe traditional Catholicism is just for those who cherish the smells and bells with uber lace? And everything is about money. If you work for a living, you are looked down. From where I am from, it is nothing but a social club for people with many children who kiss up to their priest. A bunch of fake and phonies. They go to the Latin Masses and even the SSPX while attending a No home school co op. And won't veil or even dress modestly when they go to Eucharistic adoration. The way they treat other people lacks charity and is not Catholic. They shun people. The only decent people are a group of younger sedevantists.
i could have written this myself, pretty much word for word except for the part about "many children." To that i said HUH? hardly any catholics have many children unless 2 children (by age 40) is considered "many" these days?
ok, the traditionalists have more children than non-trads. That is very good. But anyway, to get back to your main point:
I have had the exact same thoughts and perceptions/feelings, that it is just a social club and not very sociable at that. I esp relate to the last part.. way they treat other people lacks charity.
One time I didn't kneel immediately after Communion (I had a valid reason for not kneeling..) & this woman behind me pointed to the kneeler (at least that is the way I interpreted her hand gestures, could be wrong I guess) and said something. I could not hear her whispering and wasn't there to socialize in any case, but the point is that (again i could be wrong but dont think i am) that she was more concerned about me doing the proper gestures than-- well, she knows about some of my crosses, did not seem the least sympathetic much less empathetic about those... and yet she just couldn't stand to see me not kneel.
