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

Quote: However we are not Calvinists, who believe that God wills some people to be saved and some people to be damned. Could somebody explain to me then what is the difference between the thinking of Fr. Feeney and John Calvin on predestination?  Because right now I don’t see a big difference.
Sorry, I didn't answer you.  Fr. Feeney believed in  free will.  Therefore, God won't force salvation on someone.  One possible thing to consider, is that maybe the pigmy, if he had been baptized, would have fallen into serious sin and suffered worse punishment in hell.  There are thousands of possibilities, and to figure out why God did it this way, that is impossible while on earth.  Furthermore, we can't say that there isn't another way, however we must always keep in mind that this "other way" has never been revealed to us, so we would be foolish to have great hope in it.
