Who is faithful? Does who agree with you, or those who agree with the pope and with the bishops behind him?

Isn't the attendance of the Mass represent agreement?

The faithful in that context are the people who are baptized.  The Pope and the bishops have the obligation to teach them the whole of the Deposit of Faith and protect that Deposit from harm.  Agreement with me or disagreement doesn't change that objective obligation of the hierarchy. 

Truth is truth whether stated by the Pope, a five year old child or Hitler.  And when Hitler, the Pope or a five year old don't state the truth, their personal status doesn't give them a pass.

No.  When the faithful don't understand the Mass, when they don't believe in the Real Presence, when they ignore the Divine as well as the Natural laws regarding promiscuity, they rattle off the Creed without knowing or caring what it really means.  When the confession lines don't match with the Communion lines, there is a good chance that there is a serious problem.
