Bishop Rifan and the 7 Capital Sins of traditionalists

In a recent interview the traditional Bishop Rifan of Campos
had this to say about faults to be cautious of as traditional Catholics:

"1. Pride ? feeling like we have some exclusive and personal knowledge of
truth, cultic idea that we are the only Catholics, the Church's savers.

2. Systematic lack of charity - "See how they hate each other" That's the
contrary of what pagans said about the first Christians. The art of
changing one's friends into enemies. The spirit of division.

3. Rash judgement - Spirit of suspicion. Conspiracy theory.

4. Scandalmongering ? Criticism as a sytem. Ministery of criticism.

5. Spirit of dispute - Systematic disobedience. Independence toward
hierarchy and Church's Magister.

6. Cultish group spirit - "no salvation outside of us".

7. Pessimism - against Christian hope (In spe gaudentes). To some point,
satisfaction with the anormality of one's situation - and with errors by
the human part of the Church ? like if this could justify one's own
position. "

You forgot to mention the positive. Man, you're negative. Here they are +++:)

But since I spoke mainly for traditionalists, I first spoke about the great qualities of traditionalists groups, of their great love for the Church, their zeal for sacred, and so on; traditionalists are “those who do not look to the liturgy for a spiritual show-master but for the encounter with the living God in whose presence all the "doing" becomes insignificant since only this encounter is able to guarantee us access to the true richness of being.” (Card. Ratzinger – for Claus Gamber)
 
Don't forget this:

Bishop Rifan: The attendance to the Sunday Mass is an obligation for every catholic. For me, of course, the Traditional Mass is better than the Novus Ordo Mass, so I guide people to the Traditional Mass. But the Novus Ordo Mass is a valid catholic Mass, of course. The Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei stated that attendance at Mass in an SSPX chapel is valid. The problem is the ambience. In the Novus Ordo, the modernist ambience must be considered and in some cases avoided. In the SSPX, the anti-roman ambiance must be considered and in some cases avoided. It depends on each case. As someone said me in Rome, the problem is not the rite, the problem is the sermon!
 
Bishop Rifan's "capital sins" are really unjust characterizations of the traditionalist movement by its Modernist critics.

It is interesting to note that a "traditionalist" bishop assigns no "capital sins" at all to ecclesiastical authorities at all levels who have presided over the destruction of the Church's liturgy, the ruin of her discipline, the corruption of her doctrine adn the disgrace of her very name since the Council. How about the widespread practice and protection of sodomoy??????????
 
And by the way, since when have Catholics avoided Modernism only in some cases?
