Remove MLK, Jr.
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
- 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
- St. John F. Kennedy by Christopher Manion (May 28, 2003) [dubious ] : tagged as dubious since this web site seems to be nothing more than a self-published article.
- Death of a secular saint: Herbert Betinho de Souza mourned by Brazil by Dada Maheshananda, People's News Agency (October 8, 1997) : Tagged as dubious due to source.
- Ambroise-Auguste Liebeault: The Hypnological Legacy Of A Secular Saint translated by Laurent Carrer (September 2002) [dubious ] : tagged as dubious due to obscurity of subject
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)
