Liturgical Anonymous

Over the last century many support groups have arisen for substance abuse, alcohol abuse, and other addictions. But until now one much needed organization was missing. What about liturgiholics who abuse the liturgy? People drunk on power to change the liturgy in their parishes to their own visions divorced from liturgical history have had nowhere to turn to. That is until now...Many liturgical addicts deny they have a problem and will often brow beat those who complain about their "little changes" to make the liturgy more relevant and more oriented to the people...Once a liturgical change addict admits they have a problem they are ready for Liturgical Anonymous. My name is [Insert Name Here] and I am a liturgical abuser.

Welcome. You are on the road to recovery.

Does this include off-key chanting?

While I'm no fan of off-key chant, I would imagine this group is more for fans of Marty Haugen and Ylvisaker (sp?). There must be another group for off-key chanters.

See, the problem w/this is that it's too kind. It's sort of the modernist emphasis on love and compassion. The only proper way to deal w/these ppl is disembowelment.

Yes - its all about the Haugen-Haas:

For those who haven't experienced it: 'Lucky!' For those who have and like it: the first step is admitting that you have a problem.

I'd rather have off-key chant (and I should say, often have gotten that instead). Better tone-deaf Byzantine than 'On Chicken Wings'.
