You have heard that it was said that one cannot at all disobey a precept in it’s praxis if what is to be done is at least amoral, not relevant to morality, even though the mere reasons given for that precept by the legislator are in and of themselves heretical, blasphemous, demonic even.
Let’s take an example, the demand of offering the Ancient Rite of the Holy Mass in some sewer because the precept has it that the Ancient Rite of Holy Mass has NOTHING to do with the life of the parish and therefore it can not be offered in any parish church. Offering the Holy Mass correctly and with reverence, albeit in a weird place, like the bunk of a barracks in Auschwitz, is certainly at least amoral, though in the circumstances I would say it is most laudable, heroic. But not to offer the best to our Lord on His Altar in His Church when you otherwise could is a grave sin of omission of reverence due to our Lord and to His Holy Sacrifice.
And I cannot be silent about the statement publicized throughout the world that the Holy Sacrifice has NOTHING to do with the life of the parish, and that’s why it’s thrown out, why Jesus is thrown out. That statement, that heresy, that blasphemy, that diabolical interference, is evil, and is part and parcel with the pragmatic aspect of the precept. The two are intertwined. One cannot follow the precept and not fall into heresy, blasphemy and diabolical horror.

I know, I know. I’m being ironic, sarcastic. But it’s well deserved. It falls on them.
