What is RadTrad?

What is RadTrad?

The left-leaning anonymous blogger “Holy Office” has a very funny post up on Radical Traditionalism with a quiz on “what kind of RadTrad are you?”

Okay, let’s not get our undies in a twist over this. He’s not talking about run-of-the-mill traditionalists who prefer the Tridentine Mass, but the far out guys who have stormed out of the Church, think no Novus Ordo Mass can be valid, think the Chair of Peter is vacant, etc. Really, some people have to get a sense of humor.

Radical Catholic Traditionalists are people who sprang up in the wake of the Second Ecumenical Council of the Vatican (1962-1965, commonly known as “Vatican II: Aggiornamento Boogaloo”), much like mushrooms spring up after a spring rain.

Rejecting what they decreed heretical innovations in the faith, radtrads proudly maintain the age-old dogmas of the Christian religion, handed down from the Apostles since time immemorial, such as:

* Jesus spoke Latin.
* The Jews are to blame for everything.
* Women can’t wear trousers.

Considering our discussions in recent days, you can imagine what kind of reaction this will get. Okay, I predict that despite my calls for a sense of humor and qualifications regarding who is getting the gentle ribbing, my combox is going to be filled with humorless and angry people complaining and accusing and disputing.

Prove me wrong, folks. Please. Pretty please.
