IOW, sin is sin - regardless of who commits it - no?

The NO service is a parody - a caricature of the Holy Sacrifice........................why is that not a sin regardless of who give it the OK? 

I see what you're saying. It's just that in liturgical matters the Pope can changes things "arbitrarily". Quo Primum forbade liturgical innovations without Papal approval and yet the French bishops created illicit changes to the breviary, Gallican psalter and all that. Objectively sinful. But then Pope Saint Pius X actually used some of their changes in his own 1911 breviary revision, making them licit by papal mandate. 

I hear he argument that the NO is the creation of a freemason (Bugnini) and therefore wrong... And yet the SSPX has zero problem with the 1955 Holy Week, which was Bugnini's warm-up to the Novus Ordo. I do find that rather odd in some ways. 

So in matters liturgical the Pope does have some power to make changes. 

The other example is the Eucharistic fast. A one hour fast, the three hour fast would've been insufficient and therefore sinful in certain years but this is something the church is allowed to modify like, to some extent, the liturgy.
