Kinda like the Florida chads in 2000, eh?
My prayers are with the Corning Curmudgeon. The poor guy joins a liturgy committee but becomes the odd man out as the liturgy committee in question is more the "stereotypical" liturgy committee. They can't even do polls right.
To say the least it has been an aggravating time on the "Liturgical Committee." I've come to the conclusion that it hasn't been worth it other than to fully define how bad things are in the parish and our diocese. It is clear that Diversity (and I know, I should have known this already) in Liturgy does not mean what it should. Instead, it means that Progressives get to run things and all the "wrong kind" of Catholics get to shut up, except of course, they need us when they want money. What are the "wrong kind" of Catholics. Anyone who doesn't agree with the progressive agenda of course. So that means trads, neo-con, conservative, or just Catholics who want Mass to be sacred, God Centered, and the Sacrifice of the Body and Blood of Christ like Mass is supposed to be. Instead we get "me centered" and "Jesus is my buddy" music, and an army of Eucharistic Ministers.
The best example of how things are going:
We did a poll at our parish, and the way it was worded was: Do you prefer:
A) Ancient Traditional (Gregorian Chant, Latin, etc.)
B) Traditional (Be not Afraid, Sing to the Mountains, etc.)
C) Contemporary Music
About as twisted as the Florida election chads of 2000, I think. How these polls should have been categorized (and I commented thus on the Corning Curmudgeon's post) is this:
A) Real Catholic Music (Gregorian Chant, Latin, etc.)
B) Greatest Hits (Be Not Afraid, Sing to the Mountains, etc.)
C) LifeTeen Music (self-explanatory)
Just because politicians misrepresent..... Sheesh!
