Eastern and Oriental Orthodox section[edit]

There is a section that lumps the "Eastern" and "Oriental" Orthodox churches together. I'd like to remind everyone that these are distinct churches. So distinct, in fact, that if we had to lump churches together, it would arguably make more theological sense to lump the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox together, and put the Oriental Orthodox in a separate section (I don't advocate doing this!). Editors should be careful not to jump to sloppy conclusions based on the mutual use of the word "orthodox" by these churches. 184.175.14.142 (talk) 20:43, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 02:57, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Non-Christian aspects removed[edit]

Someone added statements about ecumenism being a general phenomena, rather than a purely Christian enterprise. This is A) wrong and B) completely unsupported in the text below and I have removed it.108.90.117.6 (talk) 22:22, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 2 external links on Ecumenism. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Cheers. —cyberbot IITalk to my owner:Online 22:10, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Dubious Claims about the Anglican Communion[edit]

Either the uncited claims in the Anglican section need to be sourced, or they need to be removed. There have been minority split movements but they are far in the minority. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.161.9.245 (talk) 21 December 2015‎

I agree that the sentence as it currently stands seems like a significant overstatement at best. Moreover, even if that were not the case, it is barely peripherally relevant to the article. I have removed it. Graham (talk) 05:27, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
