TL & PV-
I do not presume to speak for Stylites, but, the way I am understanding what is being said is that someone who drives past a valid and "licit" Mass to attend a valid but "illicit" Mass because they prefer the externals and without them perceive something as less-than or abusive, IMHO is not very "faithful".
I will give you that I did cringe a little at the "looking at the priest's back comment", but I do not think that it was meant as a slam to "ad orientem".
The most difficult thing I have ever had to do is follow the guidance I prayed for.
