POV Article[edit]

This article's POV is misleading. Several statements in this article do not reflect the views of all Lutherans. Not all Lutherans believe in the perpetual virginity of Mary, and some Lutherans believe that Jesus had brothers and sisters. This article needs editing. KitHutch (talk) 20:01, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

I am currently working on that in my sandbox and hope to add it to the article soon. Shark96z (talk · contribs) 22:00, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
An easy way to take care of the POV issues without removing content would be to simply describe the controversial parts as being a view, belief, or practice of High Church Lutherans. Then, the views, beliefs, and practices of the Old & Neo Lutheran revivalists could be added to complete the picture.--Epiphyllumlover (talk) 03:41, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
Agreed. There should definitely be a discussion in the article explaining differences in views on Mary between different groups of Lutherans. doorautomatica (talk) 17:57, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
Agreed, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Anglo-Lutheran Catholic Church, for example, are both Lutheran but have very different views on Mary, Saints, and other beliefs. --Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 02:12, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Luther use of rosary[edit]

Would anyone know Luther stand on the rosary ? he seem to pratice it until his death. I know he used the ave maria with vocation of mary at the end, but i think assumption of Mary was always one of mecation to rosary. Oh for record i find this article very refresh that some Lutherans would agree with me.Those I still think rev 12:1-6 could be seen as mary being taking up to heavan. Also if Jesus had brothers that most protestant claims why would not one of them came forward and took Mother mary in ? (Monkish1978 (talk) 15:02, 16 March 2011 (UTC))

Sorry what? --ZARguy (talk) 13:13, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 01:09, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Luther but not Lutheran[edit]

Lutheran theology does not follow all of Martin Luther's opinions. The various Lutheran churches and synods base their theology more on the Bible than on Luther's extensive writings. This article needs to be retitled as Luther's Marian theology. Grantmidnight (talk) 01:02, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Done. KitHutch (talk) 19:11, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
