Figaro poll- do you approve of the decision of Benedict XVI to remove the excommunication of the traditionalist bishops?

Reactions 
Le Figaro - International : Approuvez-vous la décision de Benoît XVI de lever l'excommunication des évêques intégristes ?

The newspaper uses the pejorative term integrist.

Integrism is a term originally coined by liberal French Catholics at the time of the French Revolution to describe those who rejected the principles of the Revolution (liberty, fraternity, equality) in favor of the doctrines taught by the Council of Trent and obedience to the Papacy. It is used derisively in modern times by some who believe that certain Catholics have falsely elevated theological differences into differences in dogma, by degrees. For example, the term was used by liberal Catholics at the time of St. Pius X to deride those who defended his encyclical Pascendi

Today it used as a pejorative to "describe" those who adhere to traditional Catholicism. It includes those who separate the Holy See from the governance of Catholic faith, especially where it concerns the Latin rite Mass and the controversy between the Normative Mass, and the Mass of the 1962 Missal, but also is used toward some who believe and practice traditional Catholicism.
