Benedict is not a friend of traditional Catholics. He is one of the principal promulgators of the very errors Amerio condemns. He is a leader of the revolution, whose strategy is to absorb traditionalist holdouts (ie, pre V2 Catholics) rather than exterminate them. He is a hero of the Scott Hahnian neo-Caths, who want to encase their bleached out Catholicism in a pseudo-traditinal shell, rather like a theological M&M. But JP2 was also their hero, and JP2 "the Great" was in truth the Great Consolidator of the ruinous "gains" of his preceding namesakes. So where does this leave the Neo-Caths? Rather in the position of those who want the slackness of V2 ambiguity without relinquishing the air guitar poses of the traditionalist zealot.
"Neo-Caths"? Is Father O'Leary posting here again, under RRD's screen name?
