Vatican Latinist hates the Roman Mass
As I like to say traditionalism is not about Latin and in a way Fr Reginald Foster proves that. He loves the language and wants more people to learn it to really understand important texts but:
It is a useless mass and the whole mentality is stupid.
A priest from an American RC background hates high churchmanship. In other news dog bites man.

So much for the new springtime. :|
The idea of it is that things were better in the old days.
Objectivity, orthodoxy and Godwardness are not necessarily nostalgia for the 1950s.

People like him often seem to apply a double standard and don’t talk this way about the Oriental rites, probably because 1) they don’t know much about them, 2) they think they’re foreign enough, distant and exotic, to be non-threatening or 3) they want to look ecumenical to advance their careers.

From Hallowedground.
