The Sacrament of Baptism solemnly defines water as being a necessity.
The Baptism of Desire is taught by theologians and does not require water at all.

Is that the Red Herrings?

To get to the particular question of baptism of desire itself (Am I obliged to adhere to baptism of desire or not?) one must first establish the general rules of the road (What types of doctrine is a Catholic obliged to adhere to?)

The "red herring" is attempting to discuss baptism of desire itself without first agreeing to or establishing the theological rules of the road.
