I do not know that I would even call it acceptance. Rather they are willing to bus students off campus than offer the extraordinary form of the Mass themselves. But a healing Mass or charismatic Mass is probably okay.
We are only 'tolerant' of what we ourselves prefer...

The TLM does not afford much opportunity for improvisation. The missal states, in detail, just how the liturgy is to be offered.

I wonder if these charismatic leaders object to the TLM because they can't inject their charismatic prayers and gestures the way they do when celebrating the Novus Ordo Mass.
