I also assume that you can do simple math. If a majority of any organizations self-identifies with and vote for liberal politicians and liberal causes, the majority position serves to define the identity of the organization. What the Catholic Church teaches “definitively” on the subject of faith and morals is “not relevant” as any proponents of those teachings are in a distinct statistical minority.

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?
(You) Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
-- James 2:14,18b

Kudos, spoken like a Catholic and Eastern Orthodox. I have to agree with you, many of these dissident Catholics are being blinded by the spirit of the age. You will not get any push back from me on this one. However, one can “hope” as that is among the 3 theological virtues as St. Paul noted in his First Epistle to the Corinthians that these folks will seek God’s Mercy and reform their ways.

So the fact that some Catholics are seeking to be seen as relevant by the “world’s standards” is disappointing and sad, but that is a separate issue from what the Catholic Church clearly teaches. You have been here long enough and have started more Catholic threads than I have so I think if you would be honest with yourself, you have a pretty good idea what the Catholic Church teaches on Faith and Morals and thus realize that these Catholics who are supporting abortion, euthansia, re-defining marriage are “defacto schismatic” Catholics and are dissenters.
