THIS, in spades! I am continually bothered by Trads who forget this obvious fact! Did the average Catholic during the Western Schism worry about who was really Pope? I seriously doubt it. I'm sure they just kept plodding along, trying to get to heaven.
 
If you read the article on the Western Schism in the Catholic Encyclopedia, it is very clear in stating that the people at the time each took their sides and stuck with it. They didn't just throw up their hands and say the Pope can't be known.

The Western Schism is a poor comparison anyway given that it was a confusion over an election. The problem today is whether doctrines are heretical or not. We have plenty of documentation from the Church to know what is heresy and what is not. And I will say the same in response; "I'm continually bothered by Trads forget this obvious fact!"
