Naming of a Diocese - Anglican or otherwise[edit]

Anglican dioceses should also have the words Anglican Diocese in their title. The argument that the Church of England is the established, or State, religion in the United Kingdom does not have value in an international English encyclopedia. An encyclopedia is apolitical; it informs the reader, dispassionately. Above all, subjects for encyclopedic article should be treated equally without prejudice or favour. When a reader in Surinam reads about a diocese - Anglican or otherwise - she will not know about the privilege that church has in the UK. In the United Kingdom, there are still laws in existence which discriminate against Catholics. Let's at least have some equality on the pages of Wikipedia.

Here's what happened when I just put the nominal adjective Anglican into the title of dioceses. (... is it a bad word or something?)
This isn't a good place to discuss the disagreement you've had with ddstretch (talk · contribs) - as it says when you edited this page, "Talk pages in this namespace are generally not watched by many users". It's also probably not a good idea to copy the discussion from User talk:Francish7#Move of Diocese of Chester to here (I have collapsed it), especially as the discussion is continuing on your talk page.
If you can't get an agreement on your talk page on the naming issue, I guess that Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Christianity/Noticeboard would be a good place, since c. 250 editors are watching that page and the discussion will be seen by specialists in both Anglican and Roman Catholic topics. -- John of Reading (talk) 07:25, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
(PS) The "collapse" has created an acre of white space, at least in Firefox. Sorry about that. -- John of Reading (talk) 07:26, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
