Are Most Anti-Open Letter Catholic Conservatives Aware that they are Losing their Faith?

Therese, a commenter at the Catholic Monitor, said:

"[C]onservatives have... a slow-moving liberalism that by one accommodation after another will end in humanism."

"I was listening to a radio interview from the 90's in which the featured guest pointed out that when you lose your faith typically you are unaware of the fact... I am praying especially for the grace not to fall into this trap."

A few years ago,  if anyone other than Pope Francis had explicitly taught what Francis now teaches about allowing Communion for adulterers and that the death penalty is "immoral," most of the conservative Catholics would have said it was heretical.

What early Church expert Rod Bennett said of the Semi-Arians is now true, apparently, of most conservatives attacking the Open Letter:

"[Pope] Liberius signed the Semi-Arian Creed of Sirmium... designed to bear both an orthodox and heretical interpretation."
("Bad Shepherds," Page 27)

Liberius was tortured into signing that document.

It appears that most anti-Open Letter Catholic conservatives are freely accepting "orthodox and heretical interpretation[s]" of infallible Church teachings because their loyalty to Francis is greater than their loyalty to the true faith and to Jesus Christ the author of the true faith.

Conservative Catholics have to answer this question:

Are you more loyal to Francis than to the infallible Catholic faith and Jesus Christ the author of that true faith?

As Therese said "when you lose your faith typically you are unaware of the fact."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church and that anti-Open Letter Catholics don't lose their Faith.

if they "follow the leader" (as they are already doing), THEN, they has already lost their Faith.

Why?
Because, with NO EXCUSES, one MUST believe that The Church IS infallible, and in support of that, that the Pope (the 'generator of the Teaching') is also, infallible as stated in "PastorAEternus"

If Christ’s promise to Peter is true and Pastor Aeternus is true, then Bergoglio cannot, by definition do and say the things he does if he were a valid Pope.

Reminds me of the quote Barnhardt has used from some general or something. "We've been looking for the enemy. We've found him. We're surrounded. That simplifies things."

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
