[rant]Of course, a certain person going by the name of 'stigmatized' had to comment. He loves to make hasty generalizations about the archdiocese, and when given counterexamples, simply ignores them and keeps his old point. He complains about the liturgy everywhere, even in the places where they do use polyphony. So, when countered with OLL, he simply nitpicked. "the thurifer isn't wearing gloves in one of those pictures.", he says. "They shouldn't be using a cross from the 14th century.", he says. "They put lots of flowers on the Easter altar. They look ugly.",he says. Not finding anything significant to complain about, he points out small, insignificant details. Then he has the audacity to insult our thurifers, I especially. So apparently, when hasty generalizations and red herrings don't work, try our new personal insults! Now with 25% more fallacious reasoning! I'll have him know, he may insult my intelligence, but he may not insult my duties as a thurifer. I can do 180's, 360's figure eights, among other things. I can turn sharp corners easily, and an stop a swinging thurible with ease. Before he can have the right to complain about how liturgy isn't done just to his liking, let's see what he's done:
Working with the choir? Nope
Preparing servers?Nope.
Buying vestments? Nope.
How about creating floral arangements? Nope.
Does he have a better large cross that he's willing to give us? I doubt it.
