Catholicism[edit]

An IP editor questions Sullivan's claim to catholicism, a topic that has been discussed here before (See archives). If Sullivan had been formally and officially excommunicated -- and if that excommunication had been covered by reliable sources -- the canon law question might perhaps be pertinent. However, as the matter has not been adjudged, it is not our place to do so. Sullivan says he is a Catholic, and wikipedia policy lends greatest weight to published self-avowal, especially in the case of living persons. MarkBernstein (talk) 23:15, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Maybe it's time to put an hidden note there so IP editors stop making that change without coming to the talk page first. Gamaliel (talk) 14:59, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Source for "Burkean"[edit]

The source cited merely says Unorthodox writers like Ross Douthat, Andrew Sullivan, and Conor Friedersdorf can be loosely described as Burkeans. An archived discussion (on page 3) cites this page where Sullivan basically says he's a Burkean. But as far as I could see, the page does not explicitly identify itself as having been written by him, rather than having the self-described Burkean be some guest writer on his site. So even though I don't think the claim is contentious, I do think it would be good to have a better source. --Dan Wylie-Sears 2 (talk) 05:37, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
