I don't think that type of trad is rare at all, sad to say. I think their number looks larger on the internet than it is "in real life," but they most definitely are there, are too numerous, and are dangerous because their number do seem to be larger than it is because they're so vocal.

I will respectfully reply by reminding all here that every group has its fringes who do not represent the majority of that group, cause, etc.  Think, violent extremists of every morally upright cause in history, including civil rights activists, anti-abortion activists, political liberation activists in other countries, and much more. 

The rest of you may feel responsible or do a lot of hand-wringing about the lack of indefectibility within traditionalism, but please own your own sense of guilt.  I feel none.  I don't identify with haters and extremists.  And those terms are not to be confused with people who are very clear and very unapologetic about their positions, particularly with regard to Sacred Tradition.  If anyone here wishes to back-pedal and apologize for Tradition every time you post about it, feel free.  But I feel no such compulsion and no responsibility for invisible posters on the internet, who may or may not be employing multiple cyber-identities as the same individual, and who may or may not even be genuine Catholics, let alone observant ones. 

I have also never subscribed to Guilt by Association.  The very term is evil and reeks of injustice.


I won't apologize for it, but I don't know exactly who Fr. Longnecker is referring to when he talks about "traddies" he used an extreme terms to refer to "trendies", such as being obsessed with New Age garbage...so perhaps he is referring to the fringes of "traddies" who really aren't trads, but just a bunch of neo-Protestants who wish to be their own Magesterium and interpret the Councils themselves and push sedevacantism or conclavism.
