The fathers never denied baptism of desire. They just didn't explicate it to your satisfaction.

No, some of the Fathers have outright denied Baptism of desire, like St. Gregory the Theologian, and others have absolutely taught that there is no salvation apart from water baptism.

I think you need to provide more than one theologian to confirm that they explicitly contradicted baptism of desire. I would think that if baptism of desire was a contradiction of the dogma, it would have been condemned by the Church by now.
