On Pilate’s guilt
Pope St. Leo the Great, Sermon 59: “Pilate's fault is indeed less than the Jews' crime; for it was they that terrified him with Caesar's name, chode him with hateful words, and drove him to perpetrate his wickedness. But he also did not escape incrimination for playing into the hands of those that made the uproar, for abandoning his own judgment, and for acquiescing in the charges of others.”
He is a power hungry tyrant and by his draconian lockdowns and other prohibitions, he has almost single-handedly brought one of America's most vibrant cities to economic, financial, and social ruin.
...as you say, the only conclusion we can draw from their obstinate adherence to false teaching is that these false traditionalists simply don't care what the pre-V2 Popes taught, and yes-- they don't have faith.
