IMO this doesn't need to be on the main page, given that there's a list on the disambiguration page. Especially since the semi-heading indicates "This article refers to religious acolytes."

Hello InfernoXV! Thanks for helping improve the article. I really appreciate it. In my opinion, I felt that it was best to put the Churches in alphabetical order to avoid any biases towards a particular Church. I apologize for the confusion with my usage of the word denomination. As a compromise, I will accept your current version with a slight modification: Many Anglicans do not consider themselves Protestants but view themselves as a catholic Church along with Orthodoxy, and Catholicism. In light of this fact and WP:NPOV, I am alphabetizing the Churches listed under the Western Christianity heading. Eastern Christianity can appropriately precede the Churches listed under Western Christianity. If you would like, you can use the alternative term Latin Rite Christianity (for Roman Catholicism), which will place the Church after Anglican Tradition but before Methodism. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks in advance for your understanding. With warm regards, AnupamTalk 03:59, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
I noted that crucifers are somewhat distinguished from other acolytes in the Methodist/Lutheran section but not in the Anglican section, where they should have the same distinction. This isn't a very important change (so I didn't presume to change it) but I thought it might want changing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:41, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
- Back in antiquity, when I was an Episcopal acolyte, crucifer was just a position among the acolytes. We all wanted it, so it was usually the oldest boy present. We also had the flag bearer (can't remember his exact title) and the "escorts" who escorted the flag carrier. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:19, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
