Renewing our Jewish roots during Lent

Many are rightly concerned that those unacceptable comments might reflect the attitudes of the entire Society membership.

So says Bishop Richard Sklba of comments by Bishop Richard Williamson of the Society of St. Pius X. By that standard, one would be rightly concerned that comments by (or about) Pharisees, recorded in the Gospels, might reflect the attitudes of the entirety of the Jews. Bishop Sklba notes Gospel readings in
some final weeks before Holy Thursday highlighting the growing animosity between Jesus and the religious leaders of Jerusalem in his day.

This might lead some to reconsider whether it is right or wrong in principle to attribute any leader's expressed views to all members of a group, as opposed to having this depend on disdain or esteem for the group.

I assumed he meant to say "'Tridentine'...not that there's anything wrong with that."
