Catholic Biblical Backfire

I recently have been in debate at parish council and liturgy meetings - debate with mixed up liberal "catholics".  When you show them Biblical reasons for things they totally blow it off saying - "Well that's your interpretation of the Bible".

In some cases it's less clear - but others - it is very clear.  So it feels like this conditioning of Catholics that nobody outside of clergy can use the Bible is really blowing up in our faces here.  And the problem was actually stated out loud that we have a poorly formed Bishop and clergy here (if you have seen my other post on how they allowed a Masonic "funeral" service in the church building).  

So we are ONLY left with sound laity to steer the ship.

Wow - what would you do?  BTW - no, there is not a single TLM or Eastern parish in the whole diocese.
 
1) I've never heard anywhere that "nobody outside of clergy can use the Bible." The opposite is true.

2) I'm not seeing how liberals' blowing off of Biblical reasons for something means that the traditional understanding of how to see Sacred Scripture leads to bad results ("backfire"). It's not a matter of "'your' interpretation" that matters; it's the Church's interpretation that does, and that can be known not by how some Fr. James Martin type wants it to be, but by looking at how the Church has understood it for 2,000 years. IOW, Tradition and the Magisterium are being forgotten here. 

3) As to what I'd do: I'd leave the NO behind entirely and go 100% trad, whether through the FSSP/ICK/other diocesan route or SSPX, and if none is available, try to find interested Catholics to get a TLM set up (see https://www.fisheaters.com/tlmsetup.html ). At the very least I'd give no money to a liberal parish; I'd send my money to a trad parish/trad chapel/trad apostolate, even if it's far away from me geographically.
