Untitled[edit]

"His diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska is one that is held up as a model for all dioceses who are seeking vocations; this is strongly attributed to his fidelity to the Church and to the Roman Pontiff." This line was removed because it has no attribution or source. Who is holding him up? "strongly attributed" again is passive. Sounds like opinion. -- Ericstoltz 18:05, 17 August 2006 (UTC)


This article is incredibly biased. Bruskewitz is an incredibly controversial figure, yet this bio only praises his actions. 147.134.58.166 17:24, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

I have attempted to address the neutrality issue by embedding references to the sources of the praise in the article, and converting passive to active voice. DavidOaks (talk) 00:13, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

It should be safe to remove the disputed neutrality notice now, correct? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.235.108.251 (talk) 05:38, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I believe so, and I have deleted it. However, the article really does not convey what a controversial figure he is. DavidOaks (talk) 22:23, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Controversies[edit]

I'd like to avoid edit-warring, but I just don't think it's appropriate to list Planned Parenthood and Compassion and Choices as "family planning" and "patients' rights" advocates here, specifically in the context of why FB objects to them -- he's not against family planning or patients' rights, but against the rights to abortion and euthanasia/assisted suicide, which these organizations quite unapologetically and publically support, positions for which explicit and reliable sources are given. One can call those terms either euphemisms or accurate descriptions of their broader purposes, and that's fine, but it's not what he finds opposed to Catholic doctrine.

Have undone, without prejudice, an edit which I believe was a WP:GF attempt to clarify the reasons for the excommunication, but the claims were not made in the source. The note needs to be specifically relevant. Is there a source that includes FB's own wording for his reasons? That would be the most authoritative. DavidOaks (talk) 18:02, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Section Title[edit]

There is no wikipolicy against a section on controversies, and it's certainly appropriate where the subject is controversial and a controversialist -- that's very much part of his professional identity. The policy for WP:BLP asks editors to avoid large blocks of negatives, and there's nothing of the kind here. DavidOaks (talk) 13:56, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

How can he be described as a most conservative bishop in a context where the quotes ascribed to him on homosexual acts are simply quotes from the official cathechism of the Catholic church? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.129.172.92 (talk) 05:37, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

I must agree with the IP that there are plenty of better reasons to consider Bishop Bruskewitz one of the most "conservative" of Catholic bishops, at least in the United States. PsychoInfiltrator (talk) 23:50, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
