Licit to attend weekly NO Masses with abuses?
If there is outright sacrilege - such as abuse of the Blessed Sacrament, it is my opinion that we are morally obligated to not go and also to write the Bishop.  If he does nothing, that's his problem.  Same with an invalid Mass where the priest doesn't use the appropriate words of Consecration - I don't mean "for all" I mean he makes stuff up.

If there is heresy preached from the pulpit, same thing.  We're obligated (IMO) not to go and to write the bishop.

If there is disrespect for the Mass or the Lord in the Real Presence, I personally would not go.  That would be things such as  liturgical dance or the priest winging certain prayers or the infamous "Clown Mass".  Basically a clear disregard for the rubrics and/or the solemnity of the Mass.

Disclaimer:  These are my opinions and it is not my intent to morally bind anyone to them or claim they are de fide teachings or Canon Law.
