Only protestants use the term Christianity. There's the Catholic church and protestantism, as the Chinese use it so it is outside China. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:33, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
This is not true, hence the use of the word "catholic" in creeds spoken by both Catholics and protestant religious groups. The word "catholic" itself refers to the "universal" church, with the capital-C "Catholic" church referring to most often the Roman Catholic Church. Groups such as the Lutherans would still be considered a part of the catholic group, while groups like the Jehovah's witnesses would not. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 23:22, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
The Catholic Church we believe is the Church founded by Christ, which has its actual form of existence in the Worldwide Church under the Pope's jurisdiction... Now that was an attempt to paraphrase Lumen gentium, but German Protestants feel it with all their heart and bones (though in theorizing they adopted the line of argumentation you just reported), which has led even a Dr Martin Luther OSA who was "more catholic" (if this be in any way apt to comparatives) than all his mainline followers of today put together, to exclude the word "Catholic" from the creed and replace it by "Christian". Needless to say that this remains the "Apostles'" Creed as used by Protestants, and in practically all German ecumenical celebrations there remains a moment to show where one's loyalities are. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 12:48, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
The article is completely missing the history from 1911 to 1939. This was the period in which the first native Chinese Catholic bishops were appointed ("after 1926") according to my source, so clearly something of note was going on... GRBerry 01:32, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
In the last revision I edited, I found duplicate named references, i.e. references sharing the same name, but not having the same content. Please check them, as I am not able to fix them automatically :)

My concern with this is that it's part of a series on Roman Catholicism in Asia; see the navbox at the bottom. So it may be more appropriate to discuss moving them as a batch. If that seems inappropriate because some of the articles discuss catholicism in general, that may be an argument for not changing names that would imply changes in scope. --BDD (talk) 16:13, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Oppose. Avoid the small/capital c catholic issues by doing what most do, sticking Roman on the front. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 21:15, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
