IMHO, since the Pope is the highest authority here on earth (Unam Sanctam), his teachings (doctrines) and decisions of the prudential order (disciplines) shouldn't be "debated" as if they have little weight or if his Petrine position is equal to his critics. Rather, if the Pope judges it necessary, he (or he can or assign someone else with authority) to teach and correct them further, not debate them.

Debate is usually to demonstrate that one is right and that the other is wrong, so, they may not go anywhere. However, if his critics go with an attitude of students seeking to learn more, that's different. But the approach the letter was written to "correct" the Pope, as if they know better, I doubt it.

The "faithful" are behaving just as secular society has taught them to behave. They exalt their own opinion. Treat doctrine as if it were mere opinion. Give obedience to no one. See all who disagree as opponents. Treat all contrary opinions like dirt. And they spurn all teaching and correction.
