The text

The nine other miracles listed deal with the maintenance rather than creation of icons, which resist or repair the attacks of assorted pagans, Arabs, Persians, scoffers, madmen, iconoclasts and Jews.

is .... I hope a quote. If not then its still offensive. It needs BLOCKQUOTEs putting round it. I cannot do this as I don't know whether this is a quote or not. The text should make this more clear.Victuallers 18:37, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

It's not a quote as such, but a summary of a quoted list; sufficienly clear I think. Johnbod 18:50, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

the paragraph summarizes the gist of the document, adopting the author's point of view. That's certainly permissible, but I understand that the list should momentarily puzzle the casual reader. dab (𒁳) 19:33, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Wow, there is _alot_ wrong with this article. First, it is not stating clearly enough that these claims are a HOAX, second, i agree that the passage about the list needs a rewrite. The whole topic should be rewritten from a NEUTRAL point of view. Swungarguexxx (talk) 23:51, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Calling them a "hoax" would be a NPOV? Johnbod (talk) 14:42, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Our Lady of Guadalupe[edit]

Shouldn't the Our Lady of Guadalupe icon count as a form of Acheiropoieta included in this article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.45.179.240 (talk) 03:50, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
