Liberal Catholic Scholarship

Gregory Dix, in his book The Shape of the Liturgy, has this to say of "liberal catholic scholarship":
the liberal catholic's head may be in the right place, but his catholic heart has failed him at the critical moment.
His context is a bit different than mine no doubt, but I can imagine this little quip will come in handy. Why does Raymond Brown keep coming to mind?
