Wow, the CP article on this is surprisingly anti-Catholic.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 22:36, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Things I like to add but I am not exactly skillful in English, so perhaps someone can take a look[edit]

The following might be considered to be absurd for heretics:

  • If it can be done at the Mary's level, why do we not make the exception at Jesus?
  • If Jesus is required to have a mother free from the Original sin, and the Original sin is inherited, shouldn't the process be continued repeated all the way back to Eve?
  • If the exception can be conveniently be placed at Mary why would the exception not applied to the rest of us?

"two infallible Papal revelations"[edit]

The article claims this is one of only two infallible Papal revelations in history, but the Wikipedia page on papal infallibilityWikipedia says there was only one case since the doctrine of papal infallibility was formulated in 1870 (on the Assumption of Mary, in 1950) while before then it lists two ex cathedra decrees that may fit the definition but suggests there were more (i.e. at least 3 in total). RW's own article Papal infallibility mentions 7 cases through history (although I doubt its accuracy). So is this a matter of debate or is this article just wrong? --Annanoon (talk) 20:34, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
