Fr Z on Tablet editorial

Fr Z has fisked the dreadful editorial that appeared in this week's Tablet undermining Summorum Pontificum and attacking the good Archbishop Ranjith. See Unsigned editorial in The Tablet: craven prejudice against those who want the older Mass.

Personally I have always refused to read the Tablet except on rare occasions. It went the wrong way in 1968 (when I was 10) in response to Humanae Vitae and since then, including all my adult life it has been the voice of dissent from the Magisterium. It has long been given a respectful hearing in England far beyond it merits.

However, I am most grateful to Fr Z for his occasional sallies against its "craven prejudice" and what seems to be an increasingly bitter tone since the election of Pope Benedict.
