Religion[edit]

His religion has been changed a couple times in the last 24 hrs. Does anyone actually have a fact on that? Alexwoods (talk) 16:31, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

The source says that Ma only VISITED temples; but did not clearly say if he belonged to a specific religious group. From what I have seen, Ma might be secular. But then again, we can leave the religion part blank too =) Iamwisesun (talk) 20:26, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! Which source? I haven't found anything by Googling. Alexwoods (talk) 15:51, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

I added back "religion = baptized Roman Catholic whilst young in Taipei; not practising [1]" which was deleted earlier for no good reason. It is well-sourced and not controversial. – Kaihsu (talk) 21:40, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

I'm going to comment it out. The source you cited stated in Chinese, "Some local parishioners state [that Ma was baptized as a child]," which hardly seems reliable. The article itself does not claim that Ma is/was Catholic. --Nlu (talk) 05:55, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Although Ma baptized as a Roman Catholic, he adopted liberal values after growth and remain a neutral position on religious issues in his political career. It is nearly impossible to verify these comments without directly contacting Ma’s staff. [3 1][3 2] Marxistfounder (talk) 04:37, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Section notes[edit]

  1. ^ this page mentions: ‘習賢德教授說,馬英九是在1982,4~5參加革命實踐研究院講習班第24期」集訓。他在自述中說,年幼時曾受洗為天主教徒,但長大後涉獵自由主義書籍,對宗教信仰改成兼容並蓄而不偏廢的態度。’
  2. ^ There is this press release circulating on the net:
    馬英九工作室
    關於媒體傳言馬英九先生近日受洗為基督徒一事,馬英九工作室有三點澄清:
    
    一、馬英九先生一直有許多基督徒好朋友,三月十五日馬先生與一些基督徒朋友餐敘,朋友提議要為台灣及為馬先生禱告,馬先生欣然與朋友們一起為台灣禱告祈福,並沒有到靈糧堂受洗的情事。
    
    二、馬先生小時候曾跟著大人在天主教堂受洗,但上初中以後,就很少去教堂了。所以實際上,馬先生並不是天主教徒或基督徒,也沒有特定的宗教信仰,但馬先生對所有的宗教都是保持尊重與包容的態度,不管是對基督教、天主教、佛教、道教、回教、一貫道或其他宗教,馬先生的態度都是一致的,到各宗教的殿堂、會所或寺廟,均會以虔敬之心禮拜。
    
    三、在各個宗教,馬先生都有許多的好朋友,也常常受到大家的幫助,對此馬先生都心存感激。

Ma's military service.[edit]

Where did y'all find the information on Ma Ying-jeou's military service in the Taiwanese Marine Corps because I've looked everywhere & haven't had any luck?

Every male citizens in Taiwan need to have at least two years of military services during the Martial law in Taiwan.Marxistfounder (talk) 04:40, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm moving his military service from the infobox to the body text since it wasn't a significant or well-known part of his career, it was just the standard two years of compulsory service. Phlar (talk) 13:33, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

No objections, so I'll go ahead and start archiving anything older than 180 days. Phlar (talk) 13:05, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
