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."

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 | cocatholicconference.org   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement. This letter explains how the Catholic Church’s teachings may lead individual Catholics, including [name], to decline certain vaccines. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
