The Fundamentalist Catholic Flowchart -- a Good Laugh LOL!
#1
Someone from my parish sent me these two links after Thanksgiving.  They are a good tongue-in-cheek laugh.  LOL!  :laughing:

The "traditionalist" Catholic section is marred by blurring the traditionalists and the neo-cons together.

Just fyi.

Mother Angelica is a fundamentalist traditionalist Catholic? Catholic Answers is too? Me thinks the author is a progressive. :laughing:

So what exactly are "neo-con Catholics", "fundamentalist Catholics",  "traditional Catholics", and the rest?  I thought the chart-maker simply made-up those terms.  Do they actually have definitions from the Church?  Thanks!  :)

Unfortunately there is truth in what you post. Yet I ask that you do not judge those of us who attend the TLM. Many of us just want to see mass celebrated in a way that does glory to God. Or at least we want to feel that way. We are human beings like you Carnivore. We have our faults and our problems. But please don't try and paint with such a broad brush.

At the same time there certainly are those who act like that. At times I too have been like that (The people in your flow charts).

Yet thigns like liturgical abuse are important. I think that we should convey our feels on this in a loving way, however. Remember that things like liturgical dancing distract us from the purpose of mass: God!

Though yes, at times focussing too much on those things are detrimental to one's spiritual health as I have found out.

I thought parts of those two links were quite  ??? , and other parts were rather insulting.  People assume all traditional Catholics are a nasty judgemental lot.  That might be true as far as the ones you see arguing on the internet.  But most are just completely normal folks who feel the TLM is the proper way to worship, and are confused by all the protestant and faulty catechesis found in most Catholic churches today.

That second one says things which go against Catholic teaching are Catholic and mocks those who follow the actual Church.

Did you come here to troll?

yeah a couple of them raised my hackles but I just didn't take it too seriously. I don't think it was meant to be taken seriously whatsoever.
