I think the implication here is that Trad Catholics are better people or something slone those lines, excuse me if I' wrong, on account of having kept the faith. I'm not so sure, I've been very fortunate and blessed to *stumble* onto what I know, since that's the only way to describe how I came to learn the errors of V2. We've all been very fortunate whether by the family we have or the people we've known, all blessings given by God in their own way.
Now I'm not some modernist trying to argue in favour of BOD or "apostates go to heaven" or anything like that, but I don't think that most non-Trads and/or lapsed Catholics are maliciously ignorant by choice, that is ignoring hard truths. I think they're misled and misguided. It's one of the hardest times since pre-Constantine to keep the faith.
The formal heretics in the Church and the heathenous Jews controlling our governments and media have blood on their hands, and are guilty for the damnation of millions of souls. While of course all who are damned are complicit and responsible for their damnation, I still see it as a form of entrapment by the Synagogue of Satan who take delight in sending what would otherwise be decent people to Hell.
Actually, whether one is born into the faith or stumbles onto it at some point in their life, the right answer is that we, that is, each of us as individuals who have the faith, aka the mind of the Church, have it because we've made a very deliberate choice, in spite of what is happening in the Church. It is entirely up to us, each one of us, individually. The choice to make is entirely ours, utilizing our free will to make that choice. I think it's likely that many people are faced with making that choice many times during this life.
Those who stumble onto it, corresponded to the graces offered to seek the truth, similar to those who have kept the faith they were born into. Same as those who were born into it, left it, then came back. Same as those who have or will persevere in the faith till their last breath will have done. They all have one thing in particular in common - namely, they all corresponded to the graces God offers each and every human creature to embrace and grow in the faith.
What this means is that all those individuals of whatever stripe who do not have, or no longer have, or preach contrary to the mind of the Church, do so by deliberate choice, they are guilty of rejecting those same graces, and in eternity, they will have no one to blame except themself, not their priest, not their parents, not the pope - no one but themself.
