Gosh Father…maybe you should be on a PAC…you sure know how to get out the vote. :)
20/80 when I voted. To put it mildly, Pwnd!
18/82% just now. Pwned indeed. :D
When I voted it was about 88 to 449. I think one B.H.O. is doing a better job at undermining the unity of the Church .
15/85 right now.
I know you have frowned on this kind of statement before Father, but with this kind of power maybe you should be a Bishop!
(Please don’t ban me!) :-(
Wow. The powers of wdtprs readers have been unleashed! ;)
Voted and commented!
This will probably upset US “Catholic.” Good. Tom
For some reason, I was not allowed to vote.
12/88% Actual votes are 92 to 681. Mwahaha. :) Thanks, Fr. Z!
When I opened the wdtprs.com/blog website just seconds ago, I was prompted for a cookie alert from uscatholic.org.
Which I blocked.
I visited yesterday but could find the POLL…. I voted and cast the 777th vote!!
How cool is that
Unfortunately, I think we all voted too late to influence the magazine, since I think they ran their follow up article in June, with answers ranging from the banal to the progressive.
Father, I can’t reach the poll. I think the server is too busy
I thought question 11 was a little odd:
“If I were pope and faced with appeals to allow wider use of the Tridentine Mass, I would:________.”
90/10 when I voted!!
Thanks Fr. Z for alerting us to the poll. I think the vote now is 10% against/90% for the liberal use of the EF. Hopefully, they’ll do a follow-up article on ad orientem in the OF.
Pax et Bonum
Are there any government health care polls we can play with next?
Thank you for posting the link! Numbers are now 9.7 agree – thus more and more people are polling as supporting the TLM.
I just voted at in was 92% in agreement that the Latin Mass did not cause decisiveness in the Church.
This reminds me of the time you alerted people to the local radio station in Miami hosting the poll on “music at Mass”
Thanks Father Z
So sad about the article which lead to this poll. Hearing the Mass I attend every week derided in the way it was is deeply disturbing. If traditionalists hark back to a rigid position it is largely because of the harm that has been done in the Church since Vatican II though woeful liturgical formation, the excessive innovation and the sometimes pathological hatred of the Extra-Ordinary Form. There are hundreds of years worth of Catholic saints nourished by the Roman Rite before the Council, and I feel far more comfortable with them than with the innovators of the last few decades who think that a rock mass is less divisive than reverent worship in a traditional form.
Make sure that you vote on the full length poll as well, not just the single question poll.
Did they shut the voting down? I wasn’t able to vote. Perhaps they didn’t get the response they were looking for?
92%/8% now – it’s posted on Fisheaters too.
Just voted a couple minutes ago. The next “disagree” vote will be the 1000th…(to 97)
The poll number bar thingy is running outta room from all the ‘disagrees’. I wonder how that happened.
