Now who's being imprecise?

Last week I posted on the (mis)use of term "modernist" by some people who have a problem with the Second Vatican Council and the post-conciliar Magisterium.

What is curious is that a criticism often heard from so many of these kind of people is that the Magisterial documents of the last forty years have been full of ambiguities and imprecisions which are either guilty of or easily lend themselves to modernism. Yet somehow, those who make this criticism never seem to define exactly what modernism is.

How precise is that? Define your terms, people.
