Talk:List of Reformed denominations in North America
In the article what is the difference between "orthodox" and "conservative"? 220.127.116.11 04:42, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
Use of "liberal"
This article classifies as liberal a number of denominations that I think are more properly classified as mainline. (Mainline churches accommodate liberal Christianity, but also have moderate and conservative wings, i.e. they accommodate a broad range of opinion.) If no one objects, I'll switch the references from "liberal" to "mainline". Adam_sk (talk) 07:18, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
I've noticed the "liberal" descriptor of various groups is still used. Mainline would be the more appropriate for several of these groups. Moreover, some of these are wrong. I think the author's use of of orthodox, conservative, liberal, evangelical, etc. are quite subjective and need to be under review. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 04:01, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
I beg your pardon, but I think I detect a tinge of embarrassment, or at least confusion, from the use of the term "liberal". It is just that, a term. It defines and delineates certain core values and beliefs from others. Yes, of course these terms are subjective in the sense that one is trying to place an entire standard of belief into one word, an identifier. To switch any word to "mainline" would be inaccurate because one then presupposes to speak for the "main", i.e. "most people", when there probably is no one dominant point-of-view in the main. It is also intellectually disingenuous, since it would seem to do away with those differences and divisions that indeed do exist, based upon simply how we feel or what we think we know. Either liberal or conservative or somewhere in between, one should not be embarrassed by a word that only quickly identifies one's school of thought. If one assumes something about an individual person or group based almost purely on a term, then that is demonstrated prejudice, of course. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:22, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
