Religion portals[edit]

I've noticed you've created quite a plethora of religion-based portals. In accordance with the conventions currently being discussed at WPT:P, I would like you to confirm that you intend to maintain all of these portals (I believe at least 6 are accredited to you at present), and that you intend to improve them in order to bring them up to the standard that is requested and required in order to maintain their presence in the namespace. While major religions are fairly high-volume and require suitable portals, several of the recent ones you have made are fairly irrelevant and definitely not high volume. While you have clearly put work into their c'reation', I feel obliged to let you know that several are liable to be removed from the namespace unless they demonstrate their necessity through extensive links either by articles or through the category system.

Finally, I must also point out that most of your portals are not listed at either WP:P or Portal:Browse, both of which are requirements stated at WP:P. Please feel free to contact me should you wish to discuss these matters further.

Religion Portals[edit]

Someone said that he will delete the religious portals I set up if I don't do this and that. Will you please update the religious portals to confirm to whatever standards. Also, please help maintain the portals. Any advice, suggestions, etc are appreciated. Maybe I shouldn't have wasted my time with creating the portals. While creating the portals, I ensured that all information was accurate. These are the religious portals I established. -> Islam · Buddhism · Hinduism · Sikhism · Bahá'í Faith · Jainism · Shinto · Confucianism · Taoism · Zoroastrianism --JuanMuslim 1m 21:23, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Confucianism as religion[edit]

This portal makes out that Confucianism is a religion (e.g. use of "Selected Religious Figure", "scripture"). Actually the question of whether Confucianism is a religion is a matter of considerable controversy, and labelling it as a religion is extremely POV. Whilst Confucianism incorporated various religious elements into its ritual, many argue that it's secular in philosophy. The term Kong jiao (孔教) is more accurately translated as the "teachings of Confucius" rather than "Religion of Confucius". The terms "religious figure" and "scripture" should be removed.
