I am wondering what heresies there are in VII, Paul VI, JPII, and/or Benedict XVI. I hear a lot of traditionalists refer to heresies, but I haven't been able to find them yet. A simple reference to a text, or a quote will suffice. Thanks for the help.
Most of the time, I hear about the Popes walking a thin line along the edge of orthodoxy and heresy and while not committing themselves to the heresy (providing escape hatches in the documents and statements ) they lead others easily into the heresy. 

In the broad sense, the most common are indifferentism, syncretism, nominalism.  Oh yes..and modernism. 

JPIIs actions were more in line with heretical beliefs than a person could gather from his voluminous writings.  The Kissing of the Koran and the statement asking John the Baptist to protect Islam are the ones that come to mind. 

Pope Benedict doesn't seem to believe in Adam and Eve.  I don't know how he reconciles the Catholic faith in a physical Christ being necessary for a mythical sin.  Either way, that's not the Catholicism that I adhere to.  Either there was an Adam and Eve and a Fall that require God to become Man and sacrifice Himself on the Cross in order to satifisy God's Justice or there wasn't.  Anything else is a different religion with some of the same words and pictures. 

There is an anathema against claiming the Limbo of the Infants is merely a Pelagian Fable.  I honestly don't know if by not denying the Pelagian Fable but rather not believing or bothering with Limbo in its entirety is a heresy or not.
I don't know if we should suggest this but no one can deny their findings... might want to check up on Diamond Brother videos on youtube. Ignore their conclusions as they use the common scare tactic and just focus on the quotations and the like. In the end, no one has authority to sentence the Holy Father since he is above canonical law so their position is folly from the get-go, but their research is interesting.

Also if you want I can send you a pdf file of one of the SSPX bishops critique of Pope Benedict XVI's thinking or you can just read it here:
Sure, I'll be interested in your interpretation of these different points (which I will honestly try to keep in context) Pope Benedict XVI has said as Pope and as Ratzinger. I am mainly going to focus on our current hierarchy, as I'm sure others will post for JPII.

First qoutes from his book Jesus of Nazareth,

“Israel is in the hands of God, who will save it ‘as a whole’ at the proper time, when the number of Gentiles is full,” the pope writes. The historical duration of this “proper time,” Benedict says, cannot be calculated.(Jesus of Nazareth)

Benedict approvingly quotes Cistercian abbess and Biblical writer Hildegard Brem: “The church must not concern herself with the conversion of the Jews, since she must wait for the time fixed for this by God.”(Jesus of Nazareth)

Benedict XVI acknowledges that the question of “Israel’s mission” in God’s plan has a painful past.(Jesus of Nazareth)

“We realize today with horror how many misunderstandings with grave consequences have weighed down our history,” he writes. Yet, the pope says, “the beginnings of a correct understanding have always been there, waiting to be rediscovered, however deep the shadows.”(Jesus of Nazareth)

The key to that correct understanding, Benedict writes, lies in the Biblical notion of the “times of the Gentiles.”(Jesus of Nazareth)

The charge given by Jesus to carry the Gospel to the ends of the earth, Benedict says, implies a sequence: first the “full number” of the Gentiles comes to the faith, and only then the Jews. He quotes St. Bernard of Clairvaux’s advice to one of his predecessors, Pope Eugene III, that “a determined time has been fixed” for the conversion of the Jews “that cannot be anticipated.”(Jesus of Nazareth)

Benedict says that in the early church, the urgency of evangelization wasn’t based so much on the idea that every human being had to know Christ in order to be saved, but rather on a “grand conception of history,” according to which the Gospel had to reach all the nations in order for the world to fulfill its destiny.(Jesus of Nazareth)

Until God’s plan comes to fruition, Benedict says, the “particular task” of the disciples of Christ is to carry the faith to the Gentiles, not to the Jews.(Jesus of Nazareth)

then just some random comments of the Pope from speeches,

Benedict XVI, speech apologizing for his comments on Islam, Sept. 2006: “In the Muslim world, this quotation has unfortunately been taken as an expression of my personal position, thus arousing understandable indignation. I hope that the reader of my text can see immediately that this sentence does not express my personal view of the Qur’an, for which I have the respect due to the holy book of a great religion.”

"Those engaged in this great project should not fail to take into consideration all aspects affecting the inalienable rights of the human person, especially religious freedom, a witness and guarantor of respect for all other freedoms".(joint declaration with Bartholomew)

"In every step toward unification" they wrote, "minorities must be protected, with their cultural traditions and the distinguishing features of their religion." (joint declaration with Bartholomew)

“…in the old liturgy this point seemed to me to require a modification. The old formulation really was offensive to Jews and failed to express the positively overall intrinsic unity between the Old and New Testaments. I believed that a modification of this passage of the old liturgy was necessary, especially, as I have already said, out of consideration for our relation with our Jewish friends. I altered the text in such a way as to express our faith that Christ is the Savior for all, that there are not two channels of salvation, so that Christ is also the redeemer of the Jews, and not just of the Gentiles. But the new formulation also shifts the focus from a direct petition for the conversion of the Jews in a missionary sense to a plea that the Lord might bring about the hour in history when we may all be united.”(pg 106 Light of the World)

Then there is Principles of Catholic Theology he wrote, that has some weird stuff in it too.

The Catholic does not insist on the dissolution of the Protestant confession and the demolition of their churches, but hopes rather that they will be strengthened in their confessions and in their ecclesial reality”.(pg 202 Principles of Catholic Theology)

“The impetus given by Teilhard de Chardin exerted a wide influence. With daring vision, it incorporated the historical movement of Christianity into the great cosmic process of evolution.”(pg 334 Principles of Catholic Theology)

The role of the priesthood is to consecrate the world so that it may become a living host, a liturgy: so that the liturgy may not be something alongside the reality of the world, but that the world itself shall become a living host, a liturgy. This is also the great vision of Teilhard de Chardin: in the end we shall achieve a true cosmic liturgy, where the cosmos becomes a living host.

[Gaudium et Spes] as a whole, we might say that (in conjunction with the texts on religious liberty and world religions) it is a revision of the Syllabus of Pius IX, a kind of countersyllabus … Let us be content to say here that the text serves as a countersyllabus and, as such, represents on the part of the Church, an attempt at an official reconciliation with the new era inaugurated in 1789. …”(pg 381 Principles of Catholic Theology)

Then there was this,

Vatican City, Feb 1, 2007 / 10:14 am (CNA).- Today in the Vatican, Benedict XVI received a delegation from the Foundation for Inter-religious and Inter-cultural Research and Dialogue, led by their president, Metropolitan Archbishop Damskinos of Adrianoupoli. Among the members of the delegation was also His Royal Highness Prince Hassan of Jordan.

In his address to the group the Pope, who as Cardinal Ratzinger was one of the foundation’s founding members, thanked Metropolitan Damaskinos for his gift of the first fruit of their labors: a joint edition of the three sacred texts of the three monotheistic religions, in chronological order and in the original languages. “It was our first project,” the Pope recalled, “to make a specific and positive contribution to dialogue between cultures and religions.”

“Jews, Christians, and Muslims,” he went on, “are called to recognize and strengthen the ties that bind us together. It was this idea that brought us to create the foundation, the objective of which is to discover ‘the most essential and most authentic message that the three monotheistic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – can communicate to the 21st century world,’ with the aim of giving a fresh impulse to inter-religious and inter-cultural dialogue through the joint discovery and communication of the elements in our respective spiritual legacies that contribute to reinforcing the fraternal bonds between our communities of believers.”

“The rereading – for some people the discovery – of texts that are sacred to so many people enforces our mutual respect,” said the Holy Father. “Men and women today await from us a message of harmony and tranquility, and the concrete expression of our shared will to help them realize their legitimate aspirations to live in justice and peace.”

“The work of the foundation will contribute to raising ever greater awareness of all the aspects of the various cultures of our time that correspond to divine wisdom and serve the dignity of man. This will lead to greater discernment, and to a rejection of all usurpation of the name of God and denaturalization of man’s humanity.”

“Our respective religious traditions,” Pope Benedict concluded, “underline the sacred nature of life and the dignity of the human person. … We, with all men and women of good will, long for peace. For this reason I reiterate that inter-religious and inter-cultural dialogue and research are not an option, but a vital necessity of our time.”
And actions speak louder then words, like Benedict was one of the founding members of the Foundation for Inter-religious and Inter-cultural Research and Dialogue. Meaning before him this foundation never existed. Then he collaborated in the making of an abomination (a joint edition of the three sacred texts of the three monotheistic religions, in chronological order and in the original languages.) Ofcourse who can forget Assisi III, and the ever so traditional witch doctor chant complete with horn, in a sacred place with the Pope present and respectfully silent. This is his position, I mean look at the men he appointed DiNoia, and Muller and who can forget this heretical comments from Cardy Koch,

Cardinal Koch said, “While Catholics profess that, in the end, all salvation will be accomplished through Jesus Christ, “it does not necessarily follow that the Jews are excluded from God’s salvation because they do not believe in Jesus Christ as the Messiah of Israel and the son of God.”

Cardinal Koch said, “God’s plan of salvation for humanity began with his covenant with the Jewish people and if Christianity ignores that”, he said, “It is in danger of losing its location within salvation history.”

Cardinal Koch said, “it is very necessary to make clear the difference between the position of the Society of St. Pius X and the negation of the Shoah (the Holocaust), which is a position that has no place in the Catholic Church. It is very clear.”

I think the most significant (in terms of costing souls) is the evolving heresy that either 1) Hell does not exist, or 2) Hell exists, but nobody (or hardly anybody) goes there.

No Hell = No Compelling Rationale for Ethical Behaviour.
