An eye witness account from someone that was at Fr. Loop's conference in Post Falls:
At the end of the talk, approximately half of the audience — perhaps less — applauded. Many seemed to be confused. A smaller minority seemed either disappointed or angry. Reactions since that time among those who have mentioned the matter to me have included disappointment and resignation, though there have been at least a couple of faithful who don’t wish to get too involved in the issue, which they feel is above their ability to discern.
