Removed section[edit]

Patron saints in the arts[edit]

Consider Princess Diana[edit]

Perhaps the late Princess Diana should be added to the list, since no marital infidelity was reported during her marriage to Prince Charles. -Wikid77 16:12, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

When you use the word "perhaps," does that mean you intend your remark as a joke? If not, why not? 67.166.31.135 18:08, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Remove MLK, Jr.[edit]

Perhaps remove "Martin Luther King, Jr." from the list after reports of bedroom antics recorded in secret audio tapes made at the direction of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover (search the Internet). -Wikid77 16:12, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

List of "Secular Saints" doesn't cite sources, looks like Original Research[edit]

My vote is to eliminate this section unless someone can provide references. At present it smacks of WP:OR. Majoreditor 03:54, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

On second thought, I am going to be bold and eliminate the section. I am also downgrading the article to stub since there's not much left after removing the original research. Majoreditor 03:59, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Please follow WP policies and provide specific citations. If you're going to list specific secular saints you need to provide a specific page cite from a reliable source. These could include a newspaper, magazine or website. Thanks, Majoreditor 03:11, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

References and further reading[edit]


Deletion?[edit]

Should this article be deleted? It needs some dedicated work to bring it up to par. If it can't be salvaged then perhaps we should consider deletion. Thoughts, anyone? Majoreditor 01:56, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Some of the comments suggested cleaning up the article to remove unsourced statements. I will do so shortly. Majoreditor (talk) 02:10, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
