reformat[edit]

Hello,

I made some changes to hopefully improve the flow of topics and coordinate them with the Portal:Christianity in China - which already has a "topics" template. I removed the people groups because they didn't seem to relate to the subject on their own terms. Ideally, I would be in favor of a very similar breakdown as it appears on the portal - but this is a good beginning.Brian0324 (talk) 16:19, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

color[edit]

This is cosmetic - but the Wikiproject Christianity in China uses red. Red isn't a Christian color or a Taoist color - but a very Chinese color, I would argue. Who cares if 2 templates for Chinese religions use red?Brian0324 (talk) 13:44, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

With mostly Chinese, red is the most popular color or maybe the national spirit. And it must use for only the holiest, most important Chinese things so that is why red couldn't not use for Christianity, a Western minority religion in China. I will use red for a common template of religion in China. As you can see, Islam is use its holiest color: Islamic green. Buddhism in China is not use its original color of orange but pink, the color of lotus and balance (for many Buddhist sects in China). I think you know what I am talking about. Red is definitely not for Christianity when it stand side by side with other religions in China.Angelo De La Paz (talk) 14:31, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

I could argue that red is symbolic of Christianity as well as China as per the Wordless Book, however, this isn't a critical issue. Just that the Wikiproject has an established color theme that this new template breaks away from.Brian0324 (talk) 13:41, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
I don't care about the color theme of if only Christianty. But this template is using for a greater article of Religion in China and each religion must respect eath others as well as you should and I shouldn't biased for any particular. If you don't like this template for the article of Christianity in China so you could delete it in your owned article, there is no problem with me or anyone who non-Christian or non-religious, just like me.

== Chinese "Jesus" Image ==

Removed this image because the illustration is not needed & depicting deity in visual form is not a practice accepted by a majority of Christians in China, thus to remove potential controversy I have substituted the neutral gospel characters which are more universal.Brian0324 (talk) 14:19, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Template replacement[edit]

There was already a Portal:Christianity in China/Topics as a part of the Christianity in China Portal and when this "Christianity and China" template was created it was really just redundant in many ways. So, if some of the more significant Christianity in China articles need to have a template/navbox full of links - they should just have the same set of links that the Portal offers. This is a bit of a unilateral move on my part - but then in keeping with Wikipedia's "be bold" rule I just switched this out. The template was created despite a lot of existing work done in the Portal topics navbox, anyway - so as long as everyone is OK with the longer standing Portal navbox we can just use it here, instead.Brian0324 (talk) 13:50, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

CPCA[edit]

Shouldn't there be a link to the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association? --Error (talk) 21:46, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
