Since faith is one, it must be professed in all its purity and integrity". Pope Francis/Pope Benedict

Why do some Catholic websites goad "traditionalists" into a schismatic frenzy?

Just a thought, but reading the latest "Vatican II Moment" from a well-know Catholic blog (I won't put up any links you do the homework), begs the question: Why? Why put up these posts within this context? One knows who they attract to attack the Council... the schismatic, the angry Catholic, the confused Catholic teetering on the edge of dissidence. What is the purpose of this? 

Why should Vatican II be blamed - and Gaudium et Spes referenced - as a stimulus for a confused priest staging a Mass for Freemasons? This is not exegesis from the Council texts, but an indulgence in eisegesis. 

Yes, this is a scandal and it should be exposed, but not under the guise of an attack on the Council. For such an attack, by extension, is an undermining of the Pope and the Magisterium.

Yes! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be scandalized. I would have been blithely unaware of the situation had not they taken it upon themselves to translate the original report. This perverse glee at finding sin just gives me the willies. At least the original report had the names of the local bishop and other authorities on it, expecting some sort of action on the part of readers. The RC report dropped all that as though all they expected readers to do was gloat.

RC trolls - and gets a huge response in the combox - many libelous, slanderous, insulting and unChristian - then, suddenly after a outpouring of bile, the combox is frozen. This has happened on many occasions within the context. A most recent example is the attack on HM. Wuerl as "evil" etc. in the combox. Why ever leave this vile attack on Cardinal Wuerl? Just today, the Cardinal celebrate Mass which was on EWTN. One must presume that in collaborating with the Cardinal in this manner, at best EWTN is ignorant of his evil, or some form of material collaborator.
