To you it is obvious that there is not even an apparent contradiction. To me, the contradiction is obvious.

I don't know what to tell you - have you read the OP?

Why do make the claim that I have called anyone a heretic?

Some, not all members of the OM teach BOD, is that what you consider "the Church"? I do not consider some members of the OM to be the Church, I consider the pope and councils' pronouncements as well as the OM to be the Church - provided the teachings are in harmony - when it comes to BOD, they are not in harmony, they contradict.

Will you admit that BOD rejects the necessity of true actual water? No, you will not because for whatever reason, you  reject the idea that BOD rejects the necessity of water - why this is who can say?

To you, this is perfectly harmonious - to me, there is a major contradiction and I do not know who we are bound to believe, but will stick with Trent and Our Lord until someone convinces me that BOD means that there are  two completely different baptisms going on.
