But since when is affirming EENS equal to Feenyism?

It is of no advantage to our evangelization efforts to be proclaiming the possibility that a non-Catholic may be saved outside The Church. It is the exception, not the rule and it we would be presuming on God's grace if we simply assume that the non-Catholic will be saved and neglect proclaiming the dogma.

It is of advantage because we are not Calvinists preaching predestination and letting reasonable non-Catholics assume that God would send them to Hell for something they did not do.  They would deem that kind of God as unjust, and they would be right.
