I saw that user removed category "Serbian Orthodox Christians", but i added it back, as this person have Muslim father, and he is actually also known per story that father (Muslim) and mother (Orthodox) talked with him, and asked him to choose his own religion. There are no need to remove this cat, it is actually made for this kind of persons, and this situations. --WhiteWriterspeaks 11:57, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Categories for religious beliefs are to be used for persons whose beliefs are relevant for their notability or public life. I don't see anything in the article which would suggest that Bekrić's beliefs are. He is notable for his athletic achievements alone. We don't normally categorize every single footballer biography by religion do we? Timbouctou (talk) 12:07, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
Of course that it is relevant! I already explained, we is quite known per its attitude toward religion, we had tattooed word SRBIJA on his arm, and willingly decided to be orthodox. Please, do not edit war, but try to gain consensus here first, before pushing your POV. --WhiteWriterspeaks 12:11, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
On je objasnio koliko su mu religija i pravoslavlje važni i koliko mu pomažu u karijeri. --WhiteWriterspeaks 12:12, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
If he is very outspoken in public about his religious beliefs like some sportspeople are, I would not mind having him in the category as it would clearly make it relevant for his public life. But our Wiki article says nothing about this, and the article you linked above is an interview which only mentions it in passing, with him saying that he prays every day and thanks God for his success (he does not even say which religion he adheres to). That is not much more than every American rapper says. Timbouctou (talk) 12:17, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
American rappers do not have Muslim fathers. I am sure that you actually see the difference. And he is very outspoken in public about this, i really dont see any obvious problem here. This category is not wrong or error, contrary its quite logic to be here. And we have sources about it. Also, that religion is not important for him, he would never even speak about it, let alone have an interview question about it. --WhiteWriterspeaks 12:26, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
Actually some of them do. And I don't really see the relevance what Emir Bekrić's father's or mother's or grandfather's or uncle's religious beliefs are. The point is that his religious beliefs are not relevant for his notability. Maybe in Serbia he is known primarily for not following in his father's religious footsteps (which speaks volumes about the state of the Serbian media alone), but for the rest of the world he is just a sportsperson.
