That's all well and good but it's beside the point, it's a different point. If CM had a conservative modernist room you might make some headway there but I promise you, tradition-minded Catholics will never accept your opinion because we know it is false. There is a reason the Blessed Mother wanted the complete message to be made public in 1960 - BIG HINT. There is a reason she called Russia by name and when people to try to minimize this important fact we take it as an affront to the Most Blessed Virgin Mary. Calling Russia by name IS a part of the essence! Lord only knows why all the Vatican II popes have never honored the Blessed Virgin Mary's request be it due to fear, human respect, false ecumenism, a lack of a sense of paternity, or a combination thereof. The Blessed Mother wants unity which in large part means the return of Russia - of the Orthodox - back to Holy Mother Church. There are reasons the Vatican II popes have not done precisely as she requested and tradition-minded Catholics know that it is NOT a good reason.
It's no wonder that most "Tradies" have left CM or no longer participate in the forums. This is nonsense. Most are active in many Facebook groups.
But I am a true traditionalist and the words of the Pope, of Sr Lucia as well as the emissary that JPII sent to talk to Sr. Lucia has convinced me that as Sr. Lucia said,, "Heaven has accepted."
So your statement is wrong on its face. There are those who think they are traditionalists who agree with you. But they are a small minority, lost in the backwash of history.
A true traditionalist listens to Rome, not to their own interpretations of how things should be.
A true traditionalist does not go out of their way to comaplain and complain, especially when they lack the information that caused Rome to act.
A true traditionalist most of all concentrates on trying to sanctifying themselves and those around them in accordance with the Church.
