POV[edit]

The article reads like a press release for the organisation in question. POV is that Christianity is true and Christian missionary work is good. This is not the only POV on this topic: some organisations oppose religious persecution without asserting the truth or merit of the beliefs of those being persecuted. There is no analysis of how such organisations and Open Door view each other, or of whether the allegations it makes of persecution are always well-founded. jnestorius(talk) 16:43, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

I totally agree. --positron (talk) 19:10, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Do you have specific examples of what you disagree with on this page? --worldruler20

Since no one is responding, and it's been several months, I'm going to assume there's no more dispute and remove the tag.Worldruler20 (talk) 05:20, 20 August 2008 (UTC) 20 August, 2008


The reference to "... officially discouraged or oppressed ..." may be in correct as related to the 45 countries that the organization tracks. This article's reference may be mistaken in reference to Eritrea being one of these such countries. Eritrea does not officially oppress or classify as illegal, Christianity. Claims have been made against it, however, the body of law in Eritrea does not support this assertion. I thought I would point this out before making the change myself.

I just wanted to chime in and say I agree with the original poster. I came here hoping to find objective information about this organization, but the information here is identical to information that can be found on their website. The sites linked to on this article, as well, are all from friendly organizations who link back to Open Doors. If someone with more experience on Wikipedia sees this, please flag it as having a strong POV. Aripappas (talk) 20:31, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
