Reasons for this template[edit]

So, you are probably wondering what the purpose of this template is. After all, there are already templates like Template:Europe topic that can be used for e.g. Religion in Europe. Well, I am currently working on the article Historical persecution by Christians again, and if I can get that one done so far, I would like to continue with the article Religious persecution. Not that there aren't already enough templates for that one, but I don't think that it is appropriate to address the concerns about religious persecution in a specific country in the general article on religious persecution. To me this strongly seems like Content forking. This should be addressed in the specific article on the religion of the relevent country. With this template one can point out where that article can be found. Also for other general articles on religion, like State religion, this template should be useful.

Continent[edit]

I propose dividing this template on the basis of continent, meaning merge "Middle east" into Asia and Africa. The definition of Middle East are not always agreed upon, and there also exists no article "Religion in the Middle East".Bless sins (talk) 19:12, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Alphabetically?[edit]

Just curious shouldn't the countries in each section be listed alphabetically? -- HlynurT (talk) 15:54, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Should be developed horizontally, for the bottom of article[edit]

This seems like a distraction when presented vertically next to a country article. Like "you don't really want to be here, you want to be somewhere else!" Should be constructed more like a navigational template, horizontally, and placed at the bottom of country articles IMO. Student7 (talk) 00:11, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
