Religious sects[edit]

Radartooth, per WP:GF i suggest you move the religious sects in the "see also" section to "Maronite Church" article. It is less relevant here.Greyshark09 (talk) 09:28, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

I did not see that post from you. As I wrote previously Shi'a and Sunni Muslims plus the Greek Orthodox Christian also fit into the interpretation for ethnoreligious group within present day Lebanon. All of these groups see themselves not only as a religious sect but also as an ethnoreligious group. It will be a redundant article if we make one for the religious sect, as in the case of Maronite Church, and another for the ethnoreligious group like the article for Maronites. That is why I think it is also relevant here as well in the "see also" section to "Maronite Church" article as you proposed.

Languages[edit]

Radartooth, you got a point that saying "Cypriot Maronite Arabic" is enough to imply they speak it in Cyprus. For Galilean Maronites it is hence suitable to say they speak Hebrew only in the Galilee - i'm not sure whether Hebrew or Arabic is their first language - because many of them speak also Aramaic as mother tongue.Greyshark09 (talk) 17:48, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
