I don’t hate them. I just don’t appreciate the views that some seem to have toward younger generations in various ways.
I agree on their being many good old traditional priests, including many good orthodox Boomer priests. Indeed, one thing that I think might be occurring (but I don’t know) in the current scandal is that serving priests are being tagged with abuses that occurred way, way back and therefore may not be fully relevant now.
But I will note, of interest I once heard a priest on Catholic Answers answer a question in frustration about a parish where liturgical abuses were occurring with the answer that they were concentrated in that generation and “we’re just going to have to wait for them to die out”, or words to that effect.
I’ll admit that part of my frustration here is that as a parent of a Millennial and post Millennial, I’m frequently amazed by how really well educated they are, including on their Faith, in a way that their older predecessors are not, and yet they’re continually run down by older, less well educated, generations who argue for respect based solely on age (which I’m not saying that you are doing).
