comment Are there any Catholic sects which disagree with the sinlessness of Mary?
Maybe the modern-day "Old Catholics?"

comment Understanding grace
@Grasper Benedict XVI's views on extra Ecclesiam nulla salus are not orthodox; see the Council of Florence / Pope Eugune IV's Cantate Domino or this article, which contains magisterial pronouncements on the necessity of the Catholic Church. If "for God all the religions are the same", then why did he bother founding the religion on the crucifix or why did He bother to say: "He that is not with me, is against me: and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth." (Mt. 10:30)?

comment According to Catholic doctrine, is every woman that has an abortion automatically going to hell?
The Catholic Church encourages such women make use of the sacrament of confession so they are no longer in the state of mortal sin. (If you die in mortal sin, yes, you go straight to hell.) There are other services, like Rachel's Vineyard's retreats, that help with the healing process, too.

@davidbrainerd Although angels are not in a place, that doesn't make them God.

@Grasper: The Blessed Virgin Mother would not utter heresies like "for God all the religions are the same", nor would she say, like Luther, to pray "as" sinners and pray the Our Father or Hail Mary. See this.

Is he admitting the Magisterium can err? If so, this is heresy because the Church is indefectible.

comment What is the Catholic Church's official position on the Spanish Inquisition?
Also, from that document you quote, he says: "The Church’s Magisterium certainly cannot perform an ethical act, such as asking for forgiveness, without first being accurately informed about the situation at the time [of the Inquisition]." How can the Magisterium be a person, let alone a sinner?

What makes you think the Inquisition was a separate entity from the Catholic Church, as you seem to imply?

I don't see any explicit reference to the Spanish Inquisition in the quotation here.
