I'm assuming after viewing the above referenced talk page, that this list will not be deleted. However, just in case, I voice a strong KEEP for this particular list. This has been a very useful list for me personally, and I believe it is for many other people as well. - W.W. 02/26/2006

Reorganized & Un-stubbed[edit]

I separated the ministers into their respective denominations and added a category of ministers noted for secular achievments. The list no longer merits the stub. SonPraises 20:02, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Ministers or Preachers?[edit]

Is "preachers" here just a synonym for clergy? One knows that Fred Rogers was ordained, but I, at least, don't think of him as a "preacher" (nor even as a preacher who was primarily known for something else). Camillofan 22:13, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

No, it should be for "star" preachers only. Remove anyone else. Johnbod 04:03, 3 November 2007 (UTC)


Really this should be renamed to specify "Christian", or widened in scope. Johnbod 04:03, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Jan Huss???[edit]

Jan Huss is called a Catholic theologian in the page, but he was against the core principles of Roman Catholicism. He was, for all intents and purposes, Protestant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:15, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Preachers noted for secular achievements section[edit]

This section was removed without discussion and without gaining consensus for the removal. I restored it pending consensus.

  • Strong keep: The section is relevant to the topic in that these preachers, while not known primarily as preachers or ministers, are indeed Christian preachers and are relevant to a list of Christian preachers.

My attempt was to provide some definition to a unnecessarily vaguely defined list. Under the definition of the article before my edits, "List of preachers" could include everyone in Category:Christian clergy, perhaps also everyone in the parent cat Category:Christian religious leaders ... and even the cat Category:Clergy by faith, since the title when I arrived was List of preachers (no specific faith indicated). But, if vague is the goal, then no problem here. Athanasius1 (talk) 19:32, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Deleted unknown additions[edit]

These names were deleted:

Please research them and know at least their dates of birth before relisting them. Also, be prepared to defend their listing as a notable preacher. R/T-รัก-ไทย (talk) 01:54, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
