comment First Confession for a Protestant becoming Catholic
On the other hand, being truly remorseful for a sin may mean accepting a temporal punishment, and the acceptance of that could be an indicator of how sincere the remorse is.

comment According to the Catholic Church, does abortion need to be confessed, and is it a mortal or venial sin?
As a side point, particularly with this first confession before joining the Church, always confess everything, and if you feel "I really don't want to mention that" then it's definitely something which should be confessed.

This is more of a BH question, I think.

comment What are the rules or laws a Catholic must follow if he/she has a website or blog?
@DoubleU I rather think that that's what the question is asking about!

comment Was Jesus crucified naked?
The film Jesus of Montreal is worthy of a mention here. The crucifixion scene is supposedly based on research. It's on Youtube but is not for the fainthearted.

comment In Catholic Church history, have there been any extra-biblical reports of visions involving figures of other religions?
This question should actually be deleted, because it's an exact duplicate of one which has already been closed. Reposting is frowned upon: the correct course of action is to revise the closed question, whereupon it can be voted to re-open. (Actually, it can be voted without revision, but it's best to address the close comments/reasons)

comment Does the Catholic Church say or teach anything at all about “minimum wage?”
And indeed, why should the Catholic Church be any different from any other on this point? How about a question like "Church X has doctrine Y supported by reference Z; what is the Catholic Church's position on Y and does it use Z too, or something else?"

comment Why are Christianity and occultism irreconcilable?
I have a feeling that Christian Spritualists might have something to say on this issue, which is why a denomination should be specified.

@brilliant Yes. Or at least, that's how it's best interpreted (the original was not in archaic English!)

comment What makes Jesus and Mary appearance in popular motifs look like Muslim?
What is a "Muslim beard"? What makes a "Muslim" veil any different to any other headscarf? Where have you seen Mary in black? This question needs corroboration, or it's just trolling.

comment Should Catholic christians be obligated to use in vitro fertilisation? If not, why not?
CCC 2376 refers to surrogacy, not IVF per se (which is homologous rather than heterologous).
