    "I Think it is Time Cathinfo Has a Public Profession of Belief." "Thank you for publicly affirming the necessity of believing, without innovations, all Infallibly Defined Dogmas of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church."

    1)There are those who consider themselves Catholic who attribute the term "feeneyite" derogatorily to everyone who denies Baptism of Blood or Desire and Invincible Ignorance. This group would not consider those whom they call "feeneyites", as Catholic.

    2) People who consider themselves particularly devoted to Fr. Feeney (Feeneyites) generally believe that there's no Salvation outside the Church and that Baptism of Desire does not save. They would say that the desire for Baptism would suffice for justification but if someone died in this state of justification without the reception of Water Baptism, they could not be saved. This is what Fr. Feeney taught.

    3) There are also those who would not consider themselves Feeneyites per se, but admire and are thankful for the Saintly work Fr. Feeney did in promoting the Dogma "Outside the Church there is no Salvation" (EENS) amidst the widespread denial of it. This group does not believe that the Desire of Baptism suffices for Justification and believes that Fr. Feeney made a mistake in this opinion. They believe that without Water Baptism there is neither the initial Justification nor Salvation were one to die. The final result would be the same as that of #2. 

    However, I am sure that both 2 and 3 would consider themselves Catholic before Feeneyite and if ever called themselves Feeneyite, it is as a badge of honor unlike those in #1.
    There is no difference between an intoxicated man and one full of his own opinion, and one is no more capable of reasoning than the other.----St. Francis de Sales
