Fr. Barron's Politically Correct Church

Fr. Barron is struggling to say that those that leave the Church are putting themselves on the road to damnation. Who cares if we or anyone has the "Fullness of the Truth" if one can be saved outside the Church? In essence he is saying Truth doesn't matter. CFT holds that all that really matters in this life is saving one's soul, so if one can be saved without the fullness of Truth, then he is saying Truth really doesn't matter.

This shows how "Conservative" Catholics can't even preach what they claim. How many debates have EENSers (Those who hold a strict understanding of the dogma) been in  about "No Salvation Outside the Church" and the "conservative" Catholic will say : "There is No Salvation Outside the Church for THOSE who KNOW it!"

Well Father how are they going to KNOW it,  if you don't tell them?

And aren't they culpably ignorant, if they don't know?
Even the Catholic Catechism, which likes to be obscure on this subject, quoting Vatican II, says:

846 "Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation: the one Christ is the mediator and the way of salvation; he is present to us in his body which is the Church. He himself explicitly asserted the necessity of faith and Baptism, and thereby affirmed at the same time the necessity of the Church which men enter through Baptism as through a door. Hence they could not be saved who, knowing that the Catholic Church was founded as necessary by God through Christ, would refuse either to enter it or to remain in it."

Please Father have the courage to at least preach Vatican II if you can't preach Florence:

“The most Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews and heretics and schismatics, can have a share in life eternal; but that they will go into the eternal fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless before death they are joined with Her; and that so important is the unity of this ecclesiastical body that only those remaining within this unity can profit by the sacraments of the Church unto salvation, and they alone can receive an eternal recompense for their fasts, their almsgivings, their other works of Christian piety and the duties of a Christian soldier. No one, let his almsgiving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Christ, can be saved, unless he remain within the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church.”
