What do the restorationists really want?

It is unfortunately true that most Catholic blogs are of the very conservative sort. Some are hard to believe. Here is an excerpt from a Scottish site that talks about the modern ultraquists (the Hussite heretics in Bohemia who demanded communion in both forms, leading to the Hussite wars). He says ...

The incident at Westminster Cathedral is edifying because it shows the sense of the faithful recovering from years of clericalist modernist bullying. More and more, faithful Catholics are instinctively uncomfortable with this practice and they instinctively avoid participating in it. There are a number of other practices which if the laity simply adopted or avoided would help to turn the tide.

1. Never become an extraordinary minister
2. Never receive communion from an extraordinary minister
3. Always either receive kneeling or genuflect just before receiving
4. Never receive under both kinds
5. Never read unless you are a vested server
6. Never serve if you are a woman
7. Never cleanse the vessels unless you are Deacon
8. Never touch the Eucharist or the Sacred Vessels with your hands
9. Always genuflect when passing in front of the Tabernacle
10. Always double genuflect in front of the exposed Blessed Sacrament

You couldn't make this stuff up. The full article is at Laodicea
