Priests as a group are simply not in touch with the laity. The "new fogeys" better figure out a way to change this.
Don't worry. The most "in touch" priests I know are those who say Mass at the Latin indult parish I attend sometimes.
Most of the elderly "progressive" radicals can't stand the idea that their precious "gains" are going to be erased by a younger generation that thinks the 1960s crowd did great damage to the Church. Fortunately, most of them will be in their eternal reward (or otherwise) while us youngsters are repairing the havoc they created.

Anecdotal experience means absolutely nothing.
That only 2% of the American clergy thinks the sexual abuse situation was a "big deal" shows just how out of touch they really are.
Ask the bishops if it was a big deal. Or their accountants.

This doesn't just pertain to the Catholic Church. Christianity will be much better off when the whole layer of '60s and '70s liberal clergy will be buried. They have done great harm to most church bodies throughout the world.
