Rome Life Forum speakers violate Principle of Non Contradiction and their conscience does not trouble them

For me St. Thomas Aquinas affirmed the strict interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (EENS) and for him being saved in invincible ignorance or the case of the catechuman saved with the desire, for the baptism of water, would refer to hypothetical cases.Only. This is something obvious.It is common sense. Aquinas does not state that we can personally know of someone saved in invincible ignorance and without the baptism of water and faith in the Catholic Church.
But the liberal theologians in the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 interpreted the baptism of desire(BOD), baptism of blood(BOB) and being saved in invincible ignorance(I.I) as referring not to hypothetical cases but known people saved outside the Catholic Church.Then they inferred that these invisible and unknown non Catholics were objective examples of salvation outside the Church.So they concluded that there were known exceptions to the dogma EENS as it was known to St. Thomas Aquinas.
They did all this with a good or bad conscience? Did they think that some end justified the means ? This, also was the reasoning of Fr. Charles Morerod op, the former Rector at the Angelicum.Invisible cases of the baptism of desire were visible exceptions to Feeneyite EENS for him.
Similarly for Fr.Michel Paluch op, the present Rector of the University of St.Thomas Aquinas, Rome there can be an  evangelization based on there being known exceptions to the dogma EENS.He was speaking today at the Voice of the Family's Rome Life Forum conference .
So for Fr.Paluch BOD, BOB and I.I would be exceptions to EENS for him and the rest of the faculty at the Angelicum University.Unknown people are known, invisible non Catholics are visible.
This is irrational and non traditional but he is probably following his conscience.
He was the speaker today at the Rome Life Forum, on the subject of a true conscience and evangelization, according to a post on the blog Messa in Latino.
Then another speaker today was Prof. Isobel Campo a professor at the Angelicum who also spoke on conscience.She too like the other professors at this pontifical university will interpret unknown cases of the BOD, BOB and I.I as being known exceptions to the dogma  EENS, and they will repeat this lie, in good conscience.It would not be deception for them.
Last year I mentioned this same issue to John Smeaton, a speaker at this conference,  and in good conscience he still refuses to say that he does not know the answer to the questions I put to him. He was a speaker today.
Tomorrow Cardinal Burke will speak without having responded to so many reports online which state that he has been interpreting Vatican Council II as a rupture with Aquinas on EENS only because of the use of a bad premise. If he changed the premise the conclusion would be different and Vatican Council II would in harmony with Feeneyite EENS.But he does not respond like Bishop Schneider.
Signs of a bad conscience or just helplessness?
The speakers at this conference are all violating the Principle of Non Contradiction and creating a rupture with the Magisterum of the past and their conscience does not trouble them.-Lionel Andrades
