Former US Secretary of State George Shultz: nuclear weapons immoral

Fr Basil Kovpak excommunicated

Well-meaning, he and his friends (more) have based themselves on the principle that any change is bad, even changes away from latinisation and towards the Orthodox tradition as approved by the pre-1960s Popes! IOW they are disobeying... St Pius X. Also ironically they share the Slavonic liturgical language with the Orthodox, whom they hate, whilst the UGCC uses modern Ukrainian as part of its nationalism.

Above all, it must be clearly stated that no human authority, no state, no community of states, whatever be their religious character, can give a positive command or positive authorization to teach or to do that which would be contrary to religious truth or moral good.
— Pope Pius XII

It can tolerate it if it doesn’t violate the do-not-harm-others principle but not positively command it. Just like historically with prostitution.
A modernist need not deny any Catholic dogma. He need only empty out the contents (whether of scripture or tradition*) and fill it up with new meaning.
From Stephen Hand.

*Scripture is part of tradition as Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware) rightly wrote.
