Is it ever OK to attend a Novus Ordo Mass?

No, it wouldn't. 'Valid' means that there's a consecration of the bread and wine and the Sacrifice is offered. The priest could do all sorts of other things during Mass to make a mockery of it, including dressing as a clown, but that wouldn't invalidate the Mass.

Prior teaching of the Church says that error has no rights. Vatican II says everyone has a right to freedom of religion and that civil authorities are bound to recognise that right. If there's a way to make those two both true, the Church has never explained it. How can the SSPX be expected to say the Council is completely orthodox when nobody will explain how apparently-contradictory statements aren't?
