Proper way to challenge confessor
Question from Joseph on 2/26/2014:

If during confession you are asked to confess as sin something you truly believe is not sin, what would be your way of handling it? You don't want to start an argument in the confessional. Would it be okay to say "I have to think that over"? Leave and go to another confessor?

Answer by Catholic Answers on 2/26/2014:

Joseph--

You are not going to be asked that question. During confession Catholics confess their sins, which means it is up to them to mention those acts they have committed that they recognize to have been sins. They are not importuned by the priest to add to their list.
