Why do so many Catholics drop the ball when it comes to EENS?

1.  The Catholic Church most certainly preaches the predestination of the elect.  Calvin took it too far and preached the predestination of the damned, which we don't believe.

2.  Original Sin is something that none of us "did".  We are a fallen race.   Are you saying that it is unjust for God to damn those who have Original Sin on their soul?

3.  If you were in the Garden, would you have eaten the apple?  I would have.  Adam and Eve were a thousand times better than us, yet they fell.

1.Water Baptism is the definitive sign of predestination of the elect in Feeneyism.  Those who don't get it are not the elect in their opinion.

2. Yes it would be unjust for God to punish those for Original Sin only.  One has to commit a mortal sin to be damned.  Heaven is a privelege, not a right, but Hell is a deliberate choice.

3. Who knows.
