Good. Those Society of St. Pius X people are a scary bunch. In France they harboured a notorious Nazi collaborator, and are close to the fascist Front national. They have a church round the corner from here (no, not the Italian church with the infamous mural containing a portrait of Mussolini. Depsite Il Duce, that is a normal Catholic church, and as much a social centre as anything else). The Society of St. Pius X parishioners are perhaps the most dour and disagreeable bunch of fundies I've ever seen. And never mind homophobia, they don't even seem to condone pleasure in married, heterosexual relations. ...

The Latin mass thing is interesting however; I believe non-schismatic Catholic churches do sometimes have Latin masses. There was one near here that did at Eastertime (St-Jean de la Croix, since condoized) - but then, most attendees here speak at least one Latin tongue, so it's not ... Greek... to them.
