Let's be honest. If the "opposing views" are clearly heretical, and not simply questionable prudential judgments, and are proclaimed consistently and/or publicly, the person is a bad Catholic and/or heretic. Such a person should be charitably engaged and the errors clarified, rather than personally attacked and called names, but charity includes correction, not glossing over serious error as though a belief that the dictatorship of relativism can be embraced by the Church these days.
