"If you want a service that is more deeply "protestant," perhaps you should join an evangelical denomination. This is precisely why I am always wary of those who are SO enthusiastic about evangelical churches. They always go overboard. The Catholic Church is what it is. If that isn't good enough for you, then perhaps you should seek elsewhere."
Here's the deal:
It is deeply and profoundly Protestant to ask a Catholic, orthodox or not (and Keith is very orthodox) to leave the Church and go elsewhere because they have a different take on the liturgy than you do. Evangelicals are convulsed with "worship wars" in which people leave certain churches and swarm to new congregations based upon their worship/liturgical preferences. It is completely contrary to both Catholic teaching and practice.
So on this blog, no one asks or implies that any other blogger/commenter should leave the Church for any reasons whatever. I will delete all comments from anyone who does so.
