What a perfect example for when some traditionalist goes on one their rants about all the bad things that they claim are the "result" of Vatican II.

Wait ... is that a horse, or a horse's ... ummm ...  Roll Eyes

Aside from visiting a couple times to look at some stuff you've posted I don't think I've even looked at anything there since July 2010. As of right now I have no driving need to send myself down any of those rabbit holes. As it is I'm struggling enough with having experienced the premiere of the odious new liturgical translation at mass yesterday.

I understand.  I went back in with several specific purposes in mind, and I feel I have mostly accomplished them.  My priorities have focused on certain types of specific areas of self-improvement I've needed.  Now I'm doing some stuff so I won't elaborate.

For me it finally came down to this, from Matthew 10:

14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet. 15 Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.

When you go repeatedly trying to bring peace and are met with rejection of even peace it's time to move on. They might believe they can beat people into submission through fear and intimidation. I can only model a message of peace. Yes, I tried doing that at times through presenting logical arguments that they might be able to grasp and relate to but even that is met with scorn so I have to move on to places where there is at least ground to plant seeds in.

I totally understand if you don't want to go there.  Honestly I didn't think you were going to take me up on it, but I'd like to comment on your comments.

My reasons for going over there have changed greatly over time, and each time I go it's with a slightly different reason, or attitude, or whatever.

I can no more "beat peace" into them as they can "beat their religion" into me.  I don't go there with the intent of bringing peace to unreasonable people, although when that occasionally happens it is icing on the cake.  Actually I only have a couple minutes so I'd better get on with it; have to take care of Mom, shower, then get to Christmas play practice at school in a half hour.  I'd like to get into more detail about this -- might be a good topic for a different thread, though.

OMG I think I've been on both ends of that one.

Alan

PS Lana, do you think this one's funny?  I'm asking because I like to get to know other people's sense of humor.

I have to admit to laughing out loud at this one. Teresa heard me and took a look and even she laughed, which is quite unusual.
