"We enjoyed seeing the church" means Jesus is gone as the focus of the gospel. Now replaced with the Hive.

"until our natural distinctions have been eliminated" means that the "every tribe and tongue and nation" of the NT has been replaced with one tribe, one tongue, and one nation. Bland uniformity and conformity. "No distinctions".

One culture sees all this as "normal". The rest sense something fishy going on, and don't stick around.

When the focus of the church is the church, it's time to move on. Doesn't matter if it's the RCC or the CoC.
