Skip to comments.If liberals hate the new translation, it must be good.

I've read some of the reaction to the updated translation that will be put into effect in 2011. I can't help but laugh at the protesting and ugliness on display by those who are against it. Their argument is that they've had this translation for 40 years - why change it? What's funny is that some of these same aging hippies saw no problem with ditching 1900 years of tradition way back in 1969.
Now they're crying because a few words and phrases are changed? It's almost as if they're saying "Look, we've dumbed this down for 40 years and we're not going to stand for you 'smartening' it up!!!".
You can always judge the efficacy and worthiness of something by the reaction of liberals. If they love it, it can't be good, and if they hate it, it's GOT to be good.
As I see it, the new translation is a good start. They need to keep working.
Just for laughs, read some of the back and forth on the National Catholic Distorter site: http://ncronline.org/news/faith-parish/pope-receives-english-translation-roman-missal

That’s because the liberal worldview is the worldview of this world and the prince of this world.
They call evil good and good evil.
LOL! Corrected translation is correct!
BTW, did you know that the Sign of Peace is completely optional?
If we don’t like it, all we need to do is point out to our priests that it IS optional, and ask him to cease and desist with it.

May the NAB be the next on the Pope’s chop...err...I mean editing block!
