Talk:Mennonite Church USA

|WikiProject United States||(Rated Start-class, Low-importance)|
This phrase is a POV:
- The General Conference Mennonite Church was traditionally considered the more liberal branch of Mennonites
and indicates that the article can be refined by adding factual information about the differences between the two groups. Areas to pursue include:
- participation in politics including voting
- church polity and the role of bishops
- dress codes
- influence of fundamentalism
- response to military conscription
- church discipline
- switch from German to English worship services
- role of women
Most of these are well documented and their inclusion in the article will allow the reader to judge how the two groups differ. With significant variations between congregations, there actually was a wide overlap between the two groups.
Replacing this statement
- The General Conference Mennonite Church was traditionally considered the more liberal branch of Mennonites, but by the 1980s, there remained little difference between the GCMC and the "Old" Mennonite church.
- By the 1980s, there remained little difference between the General Conference Mennonite Church and the "Old" Mennonite church.
maintains a neutral point of view.

Mennonite Church USA Category
Would it be prudent for us to make an MCUSA category to link all related entities (i.e. - Mennonite Board of Education and related schools, Mennonite Mission Network, Mennonite Central Committee, etc.)? Please let me know your thoughts on my talk page and we can get to work on it. DivusFilius 01:11, 9 July 2006 (UTC)
- My personal rule of thumb is to create a new subcategory when there are at least eight existing articles that can be placed within it. Note that MCC is not a related to MCUSA in the same sense as the others listed above. JonHarder 18:25, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
