Benedict XVI’s June 11, 2012 “Lectio Divina,” in which he spoke about the Sacrament of Baptism:
“Let us now take a look at the sacramental rite, so that we may understand even more precisely what Baptism is… Moreover with this material element – water – not only does a basic element of the cosmos enter, a fundamental matter created by God, but also the entire symbolism of religions, because in all religions water has something to say. The journey of religions, this quest for God in different ways – even if they are mistaken, but always seeking God – is assumed in the sacrament. The other religions, with their journey to God, are present and are assumed, and thus the world is summed up; the whole search for God that is expressed in the symbols of religions...”
Here Benedict XVI utters outrageous heresies against the Sacrament of Baptism. He says baptism represents the entire symbolism of religions, and that false religions are assumed in the sacrament. Benedict XVI then says that the false religions of the world are present in baptism. What a heretic.
Benedict XVI’s April 7, 2012 Congratulatory Letter on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the consecration of “His Holiness” Mar Dinkha IV, Patriarch of the Assyrian “Church” of the East:
“I thank the Lord for the many blessings he has bestowed on the Assyrian Church of the East through your ministry, and I am grateful for your commitment to promoting constructive dialogue, fruitful cooperation and growing friendship between our Churches… Your Holiness, on this significant anniversary, I pray that the love of God the Father may enfold you, the wisdom of the Son enlighten you and the fire of the Holy Spirit continue to inspire you. With sentiments of respect, I extend to Your Holiness a fraternal embrace in Jesus Christ our Savior.”
Benedict XVI states the heresy that Jesus has poured down “blessings” upon the schismatic Assyrian “Church” of the East through this schismatic’s “ministry.” He therefore says that the schismatic has a true ministry in the true Church. Benedict XVI calls the schismatic leader “Your Holiness,” and heretically prays that “the fire of the Holy Spirit continue to inspire you.” Benedict XVI prays that the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of Truth) will continue to inspire “His Holiness” to lead the schismatic Church.
Benedict XVI’s March 23, 2012 In Flight Interview:
“Today it is obvious that the Marxist ideology as it was conceived no longer corresponds to reality; it is no longer possible to respond to or to build up a society in this way... It is obvious that the Church is always on the side of freedom: freedom of conscience, freedom of religion.”
Benedict XVI states that the Marxist ideology “no longer” corresponds to reality. He says that it is no longer able to build up a society. To say that Marxism “no longer” works is to say Marxism worked at one time. Marxism is an evil and totally godless system. Benedict XVI’s statement is evil and heretical.
Benedict XVI’s June 21, 2012 Discourse:
“The East, the motherland of ancient Christian traditions, is especially affected by this process, which engenders uncertainty and instability that also has an impact on the Church and in the ecumenical and interreligious fields… the right to personal and community religious freedom. This right should be guaranteed in its public profession…”
There is only one true Christian tradition – the Catholic tradition. The other so-called Christian traditions that Benedict XVI is talking about in this quote are the schismatic “Christian traditions.” He also promotes the frequently condemned heresy that false religions should have a guaranteed civil right to promote and profess their false religions in public.
Benedict XVI’s April 7, 2012 Homily:
“The creation account calls them lights, set by God in the firmament of heaven. In this way he deliberately takes away the divine character that the great religions had assigned to them.” 
Benedict XVI calls the largest false religions of the world the “great religions.”
