He's an Atheist?
The article does not mention whether Antony is an atheist or a theist, nor are any resources cited for this, yet he's included under the category of Indian Atheists[bottom of the page]. I think either a resource should be cited or the category removed.COGITO ERGO SUM 10:07, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
- It is nearly the person above asked for reference for him being atheist. Since no one has put any reference, I have removed the Indian atheists catergory from this article. If anybody has reference, please add it and also the category --Soft coder (talk) 17:26, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
- Do you have a source for this? As the article is right now, it says he grew up in a Latin Catholic family but he married a Syrian Orthodox woman. Neither of these statements are sourced. Blue Rasberry 21:00, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
Elizabeth Antony is not Syrian Orthodox but she is Syrian Catholic. She is from my place Neyyassery, Thodupuzha. There is not even a single Syrian Orthodox family in that place itself.Her family is part of Neyyassery Syrian Catholic church (Syro Malabar) Pl correct it.

There is an RfC on the question of using "Religion: None" vs. "Religion: None (atheist)" in the infobox on this and other similar pages.
I note Talk:A._K._Antony#He's an Atheist? above. Our policy for biographies of living people requires that we provide reliable sources that show the person self-identifying their religion. At present, we have two sources -  and  - but neither seem to show this. Some contributors to Wikipedia also say that atheism is not a religion and therefore the infobox parameter for religion should not state it even if it does apply.
This can become a particular problem if there are sources for the religious belief of a subject's family, those sources are adequate per policy, and yet there is reason to suspect that they may not apply to the article subject (belief is, of course, not inherited and people do renounce or convert it during their lives). That appears to apply here because we have stuff saying his parents were St Thomas Christians. I know we're supposed to assume that the reader can, erm, read and thus won't extrapolate from "parents are Christian" to "he is Christian" ... but people do just that thing very often in the case of Indian subjects.
There is no way we can show his atheism using current sources. So, is there any reason at all why we should mention his parents' beliefs? Why are they significant to him? Why is it encyclopaedic? - Sitush (talk) 05:15, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
