The "Liberalization" of the Catholic mass and the Church has resulted in a disaster for the Roman Catholic Church. The influence of the ultra liberals have permitted the development of "Liberation theology", disordered priests, demystification of the rite, and the binding of the Church to worldly ideology. The latin rite not in latin is a contradiction. Latin is a static language. It does not change. Indiginous languages are always subject to nuance and interpretation. The changes in American english over the past years is a reflection of the cultural and societial changes.

The Rite of the Mass needs be protected from the intellectual fashion of the day. As for the Protestant evangelicals, they are the first line of defense against the Muslim assault on Christian America. Vocal, uncompromising, and enthusiastic in the defense of Christianity in America, it is they that put Reagan and Bush 1 & 2 in the White House. As Gibran said "As the archer loves the arrow that flies, so also does he love the bow that is stable" It is the Holy Roman Catholic Church that provides the stability, it is the Evangelicals that carry the banner of the Blood and Fire of the Holy Spirit. Both "Come in the name of the Lord" and are blessed.
