Bar the maronites, the society of St Josaphat, and some other reasonable eastern catholics of Good will, I suspect that may be true.


Maronites are a terrible example.  Their "openness" to Latinization has directly translated into openness to "neo-Latinization" which gives them the distinction of being the one Eastern rite that nearly *always* has liturgy ad populum. 

I see the analogy very different from Gerard and TrentCath.  I see the move to restore authentic Eastern traditions as analogous to the move to restore authentic Latin traditions.

The most Latinized Eastern parishes seem (from the experience of most Easterners I talk to on both sides of this issue) also to be the ones that are the most liberal, most pro-novus ordo, etc.

The most traditional Eastern parishes (like St. Elias in Brampton) are young, fully of families, take the faith seriously, and are the ones who seem to be pro-TLM and who feel that a return to the TLM would aid in bringing back the Orthodox.

So I know who I side with.

They are for my purposes and even if they more 'Traditional' their de facto schism and hatred of the west is nothing to be proud of.
