Indeed, they should be, but so many times, they aren't. A marine fulfills the missions and commands entrusted to him with absolute precision, and would certainly never slack off, or change it because he thinks he know better.
Every priest is given and accepts the following mission at his ordination, jesuit or not:
Are you resolved to celebrate the mysteries of Christ faithfully and religiously as the Church has handed them down to us. R/ I am.
See that? "as the Church has handed them down to us" not "as you wish to" or "as the Church has handed them down, with 'pastoral adaptations' ".
They need to take up this mission. It is one I must say that they've utterly failed at as a whole for the last 50 years.
